Kaia Naturals has utilized the power of a time-honored Japanese secret to create a formula that effectively detoxifies and controls odor. The Takesumi Deodorant combines activated bamboo charcoal and natural fermentation to chemically bind with toxins and bacteria, drawing them out from the skin. The addition of sour lime and sweet orange essential oils create a delightful citrusy aroma so you stay fresh smelling all day long. Vegan and cruelty free, 99% natural.
It will take approximately 2-4 weeks for your body to adjust to the takesumi detox and you will soon be back to normal.
The purging phase:
You may notice more sweating and a stronger odor than normal during the first 2-3 weeks.
This is completely normal. It is actually a sign that the takesumi detox is working and your body is going through the detox process. This is when you need to be especially daring and committed to your cleanse.
Some people may experience itchiness in their underarm area. Much like the increased sweating, this is a very normal result of the detox as trapped substances that are clogged up in your glands make their way out.
