How to apply Little Mango natural deodorants

Take a small pea-sized amount of the deodorant cream and smooth across your underarm area, like a moisturiser, until completely absorbed. A little natural deodorant goes a long way, so start off small, and use more if needed. It's all about what works for you. 

How long should my natural deodorant be effective?

You should only need to apply your deodorant once a day, even through physical activity - we know people who ran a marathon and still smelled fresh! This is because the natural ingredients in our deodorants work to combat the bacteria that cause odor. If you shower before going out at night, you can reapply for a night of fresh-scented dancing!

With regular use, a 60g jar of Little Mango will normally last 2 - 6 months, or longer, depending on the daily amount used. Just make sure you use clean, dry hands when applying to avoid contaminating the jar. 

Keep it cool

Keep your natural deodorant in a cool, dry place. If it does melt in intense summer heat, just give it a stir to mix the ingredients together again, put it in the fridge to set, then store in a cool place. If the mixture hardens in winter, you can warm slightly before applying or just smooth lightly between your palms to soften. 

What if I'm sensitive to baking soda?

Unfortunately some people can become sensitive to baking soda, but don't worry, there are a few things that can help - Like our Baking Soda Free natural deodorant, Sensitive Soul!
 First of all, discontinue use and wait for any irritation to clear up completely, then try applying a bit of coconut oil before applying your natural deodorant.
You may consider swapping to Sensitive Soul permanently.

It's not working?

Rarely, some people can go through a detox period as all the chemicals that have built up in their pores over the years finally emerge. This is a good thing for your body, even if it isn't fun at the time! If this happens, check our help guide.
