Sure, a serum for your armpits might sound a little too la-tee-dah for some, but our soothing Primer isn’t just a nice-to-have little extra; it’s a must-have for anyone using natural deodorant. Or anyone with armpits, really. Here’s why:
The pit detox process can be, shall we say… unpleasant? But it doesn’t have to be. We put a Pit Primer in our Detox Kit to help soothe and protect your skin during the transition to natural deodorant. Without it, you might end up sitting at your desk with ice packs under your arms cursing the day you ever stumbled across us on the interwebs. Pit rash is no fun.
Baking Soda Sensitivity.
Some pits can tolerate baking soda deodorant, and some can’t. If baking soda leaves you with red, itchy pits, we have 4 baking soda free alternatives – zinc, activated charcoal, magnesium, and a witch hazel spray. But if you’re committed to staying the course with your favorite baking soda pit paste, layering Primer underneath can help protect your pits. If you aren’t sure how your pits will respond to baking soda, using Pit Primer first is a good safety net to prevent potential irritation.
Even if baking soda isn’t a problem for you, those pits of yours may still be sensitive to things like certain pure essential oils. Should you find yourself with any irritation, we recommend discontinuing use immediately. Then, use Pit Primer to help your pits get back to normal. Ingredients like aloe, chamomile and calendula help soothe, calm, and moisturize.
If you shave your pits, Primer works wonders to help minimize razor burn. Roll it on post-shave and voila – razor burn no more. If you shave anywhere else, check out our Skin Soothing Oil. It’s made with the same ingredients as Primer, but you get twice as much product and the pump dispenser makes covering a larger surface area much easier (hint: legs, face, downstairs).
The same goes for ingrown hairs. Think of Pit Primer as your post-shave miracle.
Pits Should Be Pretty Too.
Just like you the rest of your skin, your pits deserve some TLC too. Incorporating Pit Primer into your regular routine will leave you with tank-top-ready pits year round. You can find Pit Primer here.
