Step One -Detox .75 oz


Step One

What is so detoxing about this deodorant? Our clay binds to the bacteria and toxins living on the surface of your skin purifying the area for better underarm health.

When using our deodorant, make sure to wait before placing clothes on to allow it to absorb into the skin. For faster absorption rub in, just like lotion. Never apply too much as a small amount is the only thing needed to get you through the day. Last up to 3 months or more.

This step is for those who may have never used “natural” deodorant before, and want to take the first step to a holistic lifestyle, which is moving from commercial deodorant to a safer alternative. This first step will help allow your underarm glands to open and allow your body to adjust to not having its glands blocked. This transition could last up two weeks or longer, as some of our clients have experienced. When your body gets to a point where the detox period is over, you can move to step two or continue to use the detox deodorant if it is working fine for you. If you experience a period where it seems like your detox period has finished, and you begin to experience an odor, since you have continued to use the detox deodorant, then it may be your body telling you to move to step two, which is just to maintain what you have already started. Some clients do not go through the period where they have an odor at all while they are detoxing, or it may come later in the process of using the detox. Everyone’s body is different.
We encourage our clients to use this time to become healthier and aid your body in speeding up your detox process, by increasing your water intake and sweating more by working out or going to a sauna or a sweat room. Sweating is your body’s natural way of detoxing impurities. So, it is so good for you! Love to sweat, your body will love you for it.
What is step two?

Step two can be a few things, such as just using lemon as a deodorizer. You can use a slice of lemon under your arms, let it sit for 3-5 min, and then wash it off. Apply the deodorant or go without deodorant. You want to make sure you avoid your armpits being directly in the sun, as there can be an adverse effect, but some may be ok, everyone’s body is different. A simple search online about lemon and underarms is always a good idea. Getting informed about the products you use is a good habit to have.

For your step two, you can choose to start using our Black Cat deodorant as it’s ingredients are much milder under the arms, and can be used as just a way to keep fresh instead of working to pull out toxins that can cause the odor you want to avoid.

Our last suggestion for your step two is trying another brand. What works for some does not work for all. We have had many of our clients use our detox as a starter to help get them into the habit of making healthier choices, but after they have completed their detox period they choose to try other types of “natural” alternatives. Which we strongly suggest, rather than going back to commercial options.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does it take time to adjust to natural deodorant?

It depends, if you’ve never used a natural deodorant, you probably will have to go through an adjustment period. Your body has to get used to not having its glands blocked. Be patient. Pick a time when you won’t be around people too much. Your transition period could last a week or two. The good news is - the longer you use it, the better it works!

Is this an antiperspirant?

This deodorant is not an antiperspirant - sweat is healthy and a required part of detoxing your body. Since our deodorant doesn't contain any of the toxic chemicals found in conventional deodorants, it won’t interfere with your body’s natural and necessary detoxification process (also known as sweating).
So embrace those sweat glands!

What if I have a bad reaction?

If you experience a reaction to our regular deodorant or another product w/ baking soda, it's important to let your pits heal 100% before continuing to use the deodorant. Those with extreme baking soda sensitivity may still react to this formula, and may need to try other alternatives.

Is your packaging BPA-free?

Our products are packaged in BPA-free plastic containers.

I'm a man, will the scent work for me?

One-scent-fits-all, don't worry about smelling to girly, men love our deodorant to + since our deodorant is meant to help neutralizes order, the scent will dissipate throughout the day so you smell like nothing at all, and totally forget you have armpits!

What is the expiration date/shelf life?

We recommend using it within 3-6 months of purchase.

I'd like to sell Body by Ruah, where can I find wholesale information?

For retailers in the U.S. Territories and Outlying Areas, you can contact!

Why are my armpits hurting and irritated?

Baking soda is usually the culprit, as it can be rough for the sensitive area of our pits. This is why we have moved to a more sensitive deodorant formula. Your body should eventually adjust. It still may cause issues for some, and if so, please discontinue use of the product.
A few tips:
1.) Make sure the deodorant is going on smoothly. If it is too solid, place it on your skin for a little while for it to warm up, then it should go on smoothly.
2.) Do not apply as much as you would store bought deodorant. A little goes a long way with our stuff.
3.) Do not shave and apply our deodorant right after.
4.) Wait a few minutes before placing clothes on.
