If your Eco-Tube deodorant seems stuck and will not push up, watch the video for some tips.

What can I do if the deodorant gives me a rash?

First of all, baking soda is incredibly effective at neutralizing odor. It does this by creating an alkaline environment against your skin where bacteria cannot thrive. Having a layer of baking soda on your skin causes the skin in that spot to become more alkaline than it's normal pH, and so the body releases acids to counteract this and regain normal pH levels. If your body releases LOTS of acid, then the skin may become inflamed and a rash may appear.

So what should you do?

The first way to deal with this is to stop using the deodorant, allow the irritation to calm down, and then give it another try using the following tips. 

  • Apply minimally.
  • Don't apply twice in one day without showering in between. 
  • Wash armpits gently and thoroughly between applications.
  • Only apply to warm, damp skin so deodorant glides without friction.

If this is your first time using a natural deodorant, do not be discouraged. It can take a little time to adjust, but we assure you it's worth it. Reactions are few and far between, but they do happen. If you have a rash that persists after trying everything we've mentioned, give our BAKING SODA FREE Sensitive Skin Formula a try.

Is your baking soda aluminum free?

The baking soda we use is from Natural Soda in Colorado. We phoned the sales rep, Ryan Stanton, to gain accurate information on the topic of aluminum in baking soda.

Natural Soda baking soda is extracted from 2000 feet underground using hot water. They are the only facility in the country that uses that method and extracts 100% sodium bicarbonate. This company supplies other companies, including Bobs Red Mill, with baking soda. Bobs Red Mill actually claims that their baking soda is "aluminum free", but according to Ryan they have since removed this claim. That isn't to say that they realized that there is aluminum in their soda, it's because they can't determine that there isn't.

Natural Soda has had 3rd party testing done to determine its purity, and no test has ever shown the presence of aluminum. However, because sodium bicarbonate is mined out of the ground, and geographically we know that the earth is made up of many different minerals, there is a POSSIBILITY that there may be heavy metals in their product. The measurement (5ppm <parts per million> of heavy metals) is a precautionary statement the company is making. That is the maximum measurement of naturally occurring heavy metals that may be present, it may be less. Aluminum may be one of those metals, or may not. 

According to Ryan, organic baking soda does not exist. He said they are OMRI (Organic Materials Review Institute) certified, which is a product that is pure enough to be used in organic products.



    "The only deodorant I use! It’s the only one I’ve found that doesn’t irritate my super sensitive skin and it WORKS! I work a very physically active job and never go home stinky. I love it and recommend it to everyone."




    "The best deodorant out there! "

    "Thank you for having the best natural deodorant! I'm excited for my yearly order!"

    "Your product is superior to all others I have tried on the market ."

    “I am 48 years old and have spent a lifetime of sweating every form imaginable of deodorant and antiperspirant onto my clothes, giving them an undesirable odour that I could never get rid of once it was in the fibers. I can typically wear garments for a season then have to live with embarrassing odour or replace the garment.
    YOUR DEODORANT IS A MIRACLE!! I feel completely safe using it, and I can often go two days in a row without having to reapply it. My clothes never EVER smell of sweat and deodorant anymore!!! 35 years Leah! All I can say is thank-you. I even told my mom and she can't believe I have finally found a solution. And its an all natural one to boot! So fantastic. I'm sure not everyone gets this excited about deodorant, but what can I say!"




    KL Skin deodorant has become one of my staple products - can't go without it! After trying most "natural" deodorants on the market - and being disappointed time after time - I finally found something that works and I'm sticking with it!

    Your deodorant out-sells every other brand I carry....combined!

    I have known for many years the health risks of using conventional deodorants, but have never found a good natural alternative until now. Leah's products work! I'm a hard working horse girl who is a very satisfied user of KL deodorant.




    I was visiting Nelson a few weeks ago and bought one of your deodorants from a local store. I absolutely love it and I can't believe how well it works! I've tried many natural deodorants and none of them have worked for me. I would love to order more if I could. I have coconut lime and I love it!

    I bought one of your deodorants at a winter craft fair and was really pleased with how it worked, and smelled great too!

    I took a few days trying the deodorant out before commenting. I wanted to be sure of the product. I am pleased to say it’s amazing. I honestly wasn't expecting much, but wow. Great scent and lost lasting protection. Will be a repeat customer.

    We still swear by your deodorant. I couldn't imagine putting anything else on my skin.

    Absolutely love the lip balm.
