The all natural Woohoo Mellow Deodorant and Anti-Chafe Stick maintains it friendship with your skin by being bicarb free, fragrance free and essential oil free. Though it does bring something new and exciting to the relationship.
Woohoo Mellow has been available as a deodorant paste for some time now, but getting Mellow to work in stick form was not as easy as we thought it would be. It took many attempts at the formula to nail the delicate balance that was required - it had to bust BO but also be a dream to apply.
It was tricky but by jove we did it!
Bicarb Out - Magnesium In
Magnesium Hydroxide (also goes by “milk of magnesia”) works an absolute treat at neutralising BO but is softer and more gentle on the skin than bicarb soda.
And it has a few extra friends for added oomph:
Activated Charcoal - Who cares if it’s so 2018, because, well, whatcan’t it do? Well you can add another string to the activated charcoal bow because it not only works at keeping you dry it also adsorbs odour. Double thumbs up.
Zinc Oxide - protects your skin and also helps to further reduce the chance of irritation.
Kaolin Clay- helps keep you feeling dry and to also absorb dour.
Polyglyceryl 2 Caprate - This may sound all scientific but it is a natural ingredient. Polyglyceryl 2 = lots of molecules from glycerine, Caprate = an oil ester derived from vegetable sources. Normally it is found in oil cleansers like the Happy Skincare 3 Cheers Cleansing Oil but it has a cool party trick - it busts BO like a boss.
