Ecocert COSMOS Certified  - 100% Natural Origin.

BALMUNDER is a deodorant.

Deodorants simply reduce the number of bacteria and thus, reduce the smell.  

Most 'natural' deodorants use a heavy not-so-great oily base such as: caprylic/capric triglycerides (palm), propylene glycol (petroleum), propanediol (gmo corn), hydrogenated vegetable oil (soy), shea butter (latex/refined)... with minerals, salts, acids, herbs, essential oils, alcohols, etc. mixed in.

Hurraw! we do it different-ly.

We buffer our USP grade salts and minerals; an important step that others skip. These are emulsified in an organic coconut and cacao butter base. We add in proven skin soothers: aloe, oat and kaolin to make a non-greasy, gentle, moisturizing balm-like cream that works.

Long lasting!

No greasy residue or pitted out shirts!

100% recyclable tube!

Sweat doesn't smell.

It is mostly water, a little bit of salt and some tiny amounts of other body waste stuff. The millions of eccrine glands located all over our body sweat to maintain our internal body temperature.

When it comes to 'the pits-n-bits' there are different sweat glands present; these are called apocrine glands. These glands secrete a milkier sweat that has a different composition; namely fats and proteins. Apocrine glands are located in the 'grassy' parts of the body and secrete directly onto the hair follicles.

Bacteria live on your skin. We have trillions of them in and on our bodies. Bacteria that live in the 'grassy' parts like to munch on the rich apocrine gland sweat. The ‘leftovers' from bacteria’s feast is what we associate as body odor. Body odor is seen as bad which is kinda sad because it’s normal to smell. In fact, the apocrine glands main purpose is to give you your own distinctive stank.

Deodorants simply reduce the number of bacteria. This reduction in the number of bacteria eating your apocrine sweat allows you to not smell as much.

Conversely, antiperspirants only effect your eccrine glands from pumping out sweat, which doesn’t really do much except keep you drier. Since your armpits apocrine gland sweat is what feeds the bacteria and antiperspirants do nothing to suppress the output from these feeder glands; we think it’s best just to sweat!

The aluminum in antiperspirants is entirely different from the aluminum in the BALMUNDER tubes.

We’ve had some concern from customers that aluminum is bad in deodorant and they "can’t believe we use aluminum tubes for it!" We understand their concern but the aluminum they are referring to is completely different than the aluminum that makes up our cosmetic tubes (to read more about our aluminum tubes, go to 'Packaging' on our details page).

Aluminum chlorohydrate is the aluminum salt found in anti-perspirants. This is made when aluminum reacts with hydrochloric acid. This salt was designed to soak into your arm pit pores and prevent sweating. The 'FDA says' it’s safe at concentrations up to 25% in antiperspirants and requires antiperspirant manufacturers to list it on their label as aluminum salts, aluminum compounds, aluminum chlorohydrate, etc… always read labels!

Although there are negligible findings that long term exposure of aluminum leads to Alzheimer’s, cancers, kidney things and bone diseases, we don’t want to put it on our arm pits, so we won’t put it on yours either.


* NOTE: key sold separately.

How to use: Place a small pea-sized amount on your fingertip...squish between your other fingertip and apply to underarm (or other) area. Apply as needed, usually just once a day :). One tube usually lasts about 2 months.

Aluminum: In our efforts to reduce plastic, we chose aluminum! The tube is 100% recyclable.

How To: 1. Unscrew the cap. 2. Flip the cap over and re-screw onto the tube to puncture seal. 3. Re-seal using either side of cap. 4. Squeeze gently from the bottom up. Squish or roll the tube up as you use product! The cap is recyclable #5.

Best natural deodorant yet

I’ve tried many natural deos and this one lasts the longest of any so far! My go to for years has been Schmidt’s charcoal (worked better than the other Schmidt’s) and this by itself lasts at least 4 hours longer. But the best part is that if I need to I can layer this one with Schmidt’s and it lasts EVEN longer for over 24 hours. It has never irritated my skin and I’ve gotten rashes from other deodorants before. I like that it comes in unscented so it doesn’t clash with perfume or anything else you want to smell like, but I’m going to try the scents too- if they are too strong I’ll just mix them with this one! Only con is the price for a small tube- please sell this in a bulk size!!

❤️ Loving your feedback! Thank you!

My sensitive skin loves it

I switched to a big name natural deodorant a while ago but still felt like there was odor and I didn't like the feel of it. This stuff feels like nothing once it's on and it works so well. I love that it's completely unscented which is great for my sensitive skin. It's just more $ than I would like to be paying for deodorant.

So happy UNDER B is working well for your sensitive skin! Thanks for letting us know your thoughts!

Simple, Clean and Efficient

This surpasses any of the "clean products" I have been using since 2009.

"The industry" has made personal care ridiculously complex, and Hurraw knows it's not.

I appreciate the packaging as well as the ingredients inside.

Thank you so much,
Rebecca

Rebecca, thank you so much! You get us :)
