Most people think that body odor is caused by the sweat under their arms, but this isn’t true! The smell is actually caused by the bacteria that live and grow under your arms. Consider this as good news, as there is a really easy way to help mitigate this problem.
Use an antibacterial soap under your arms before applying deodorant. Doing this creates an environment that odor-causing bacteria can’t live. By controlling the bacteria, you will be able to control the odor.
We developed the deodorant booster bar, which is formulated with apple cider vinegar and charcoal which are known as an all-natural antibacterial. Use this bar in the shower before applying your deodorant to give your underarms a clean and protected barrier from any bacteria. Now you’ll be sure to have your natural deodorant work better and last longer!

Don’t worry, we have the PERFECT and relaxing detox for you. We promise, no starving required! No matter what your symptoms are, one of our the takesumi detox® hot baths are sure to do the trick.
