Product Info & Ingredients

What is a natural deodorant and should I be using one?

Noniko’s natural deodorant utilizes ingredients from nature. Our natural blend keeps you smelling fresh while being safe for our bodies and planet.

Noniko’s deodorant is not an antiperspirant.  Antiperspirants often use aluminum as the active ingredient.  Aluminum works by entering your sweat glands and expanding like a cork to prevent you from sweating. 

Our bodies are designed to detox through our armpits when sweating.  Rather than preventing your body from eliminating toxins, we encourage the natural detox process. 

We created a product that has all odor-neutralizing properties without clogging your sweat glands.

Does this deodorant have aluminum in it?

No way, never. Our deodorant ingredients are sustainably sourced and carefully crafted by hand in our San Diego studio. The deodorants contain no parabens, no sulfates, no aluminum, and no questionable ingredients ever. 

What is the detox process?

When your body is used to an antiperspirant,  and you switch to a natural deodorant, you can sometimes experience heavy sweating for about 2 weeks. We call this the detox period. This is when your body is acclimating to nothing blocking your sweat glands.  

During this time, you may need to reapply your  Noniko Natural Deodorant once or twice for the first couple weeks of your transition.  Not to worry - our powerful formula eliminates odor on the spot, so even during the detox process, you will not stink.  In two weeks your body will adjust to being free from antiperspirant and one swipe of NONIKO Natural Deodorant will keep you smelling fresh all day.  

After the first two weeks, you will notice a dramatic reduction in how much you sweat, then as the months go on, you will likely notice that you sweat less and less until years later - you may not even need to wear deodorant every day.

Want to speed up the process?  Try our French Green Clay Detox Mask, found here.

Is this deodorant suitable for sensitive skin?

Yes! We have a sensitive formula.  Some people may experience a rash from Baking Soda.  Our Sensitive Formula is baking soda-free.

Does scented deodorant work better than the unscented one?

Nope! They both work the same and have the same ingredients except for the addition of natural essential oils in the scented version. Aromatherapy to start your day!

Where are your products made?

All our products are handmade in our San Diego studio! We take great pride in our small batch manufacturing that we oversee from start to finish!

Why do I still smell bad?

You shouldn’t!  Call us if you would like us to coach you through the detox process ...we do it all the time for no charge.  If this product doesn’t work for you, please let us know because you deserve a refund!  All of our products are 100% Customer Satisfaction Guaranteed.  

I got a rash from your natural deodorant. 

Sometimes baking soda may cause a rash.  If this happens, we recommend switching to our sensitive formula or alternating between the two formulas. You can also use the sensitive formula as a primer followed by the original for more effective odor protection.

Can anyone use this deodorant?

Absolutely! Our deodorant is made for everybody in mind. Sensitive to baking soda? Try our baking soda free deodorant. Not a fan of scents? Try the unscented one! Men and women alike use and love our deodorant.

Packaging

What do I do with my empty refills?

When it’s time for a new refill, your subscription will deliver straight to your door in a reusable and recyclable box. Insert your new refill and toss the empty one back in the box, attach the enclosed return label, and pop it into your mailbox for USPS to pick up.

Through this process, we are limiting CO2 emissions as much as possible- making it easy for a postal worker already en route to transport your empty insert back to our sanitization facilities. 

How do I put a new refill in my case?

Check out this Unboxing Video on IGTV or Youtube! We walk you through step by step instructions on how to insert your refills. 

Is your packaging plastic free?

Yes! Everything from our shipping boxes to our packaging are completely plastic free! We plan to integrate plastic free packaging throughout the rest of our collection by May 2021 as soon as we phase out our current plastic inventory!
