You Asked, We Answered
DOES THIS STUFF ACTUALLY WORK?
You bet! We do not corners when it comes to our innovative formula and the resulting product is extremely effective. Little Salties Natural Deodorants are boosted with magnesium and sea salt which effectively neutralises odour and absorbs wetness without the use of controversial ingredients such as aluminium and propylene glycol, triclosan etc. Click here to read about our Natural Deo life hacks.
DO LITTLE SALTIES DEODORANTS CONTAIN OTHER HARMFUL CHEMICALS?
Nope! Our formula is 100% free of aluminum, parabens, propylene-glycol, phthalates, gluten.
IS IT AN ANTIPERSPIRANT? WILL IT HELP PROTECT ME FROM SWEAT?
We don’t use aluminium which ultimately blocks the pores to prevent the body's healthy process of sweating. However, our formula does contain natural plant powders and magnesium which actively halts bad bacteria aka bad smells! It also absorbs wetness, so while Natural Deodorant doesn’t stop you from sweating, it will still help keep you dry and smelling fresh.
IS IT REALLY MADE IN NEW ZEALAND?
Yes and not only that but our ingredients are sourced from other local businesses. We are a truly NZ based company and believe in creating and supporting local and sustainable futures.
HOW DO I APPLY IT AND WILL IT LAST ALL DAY?
Little Salties are easy-apply roll on style deodorants. We specifically chose this style of application in order to not have to deal with sticky or greasy fingers from pot-dipping jars of balm based product. Simply shake the bottle and gently roll under your armpits. It will dry relatively fast and can be applied as often as needed. Some people need to apply a few times a day and others will be all set with one morning application.
I'M SENSITIVE TO BAKING SODA, CAN YOU HELP ME?
Yes we can! This is quite a common sensitivity which is often a problem for users seeking a natural alternative deodorant. To accomodate our extra sensitive friends we have formulated an extra gentle yet effective deodorant called "ALOE BOOST 4/- SENSITIVE SOULS" which is free of baking soda and then boosted with extra aloe vera. Its incredible!
IS UNDERARM DETOX A THING?
Yes and no. It depends on a lot of factors like how long you have been using traditional deodorant and how sensitive you are. Some users report what they call an “underarm detox” when transitioning from traditional antiperspirants and deodorants to natural deodorant. The theory goes that the body may expel toxins that were previously blocked by chemicals such as aluminium in the sweat glands. Many report no transition at all, while others may report a fluctuation in odor, wetness, and sensitivity.
WILL LITTLE SALTIES STAIN MY CLOTHES?
EWE, can you expect nasty yellow sweat stains?! No way! These stains are often the result of chemical interactions between your body’s urea and aluminium which is found in antiperspirants so no worries there! No Aluminium, no yellow stains.
