You will get 3 generous sized samples in sealed pouches. These are food grade, FDA approved 2.5″ x 5.5″ Foil pouches
I provide large samples so you can make sure you like it and it agrees with your sensitive underarm skin. Some people find baking soda deodorants too alkaline for their skin’s Ph. (Luckily, these are the same people that tend to have less issues with body odor. For these people I make my Mineral Deodorant roll-on. See my website on information on why some people might rash using Baking Soda: https://ziryabs.com/question_about_rashes/)
Please visit my review page for testimonials about my deodorant, I am honored that so many people have taken the time to give me feedback.
You’ll need a paper clip or something to keep the sample closed and put it in a cup to keep it upright. Alternatively, you might want to pour the sample in a travel sized bottle so it can be shaken. Give the sample package some shaking before opening.
We can only send one of these batches of three samples to any one customer.
WHY DO I MAKE ZIRYAB’S BODY BREW LOTION DEODORANT
This is the deodorant that taught me that there is natural and safe ingredients throughout our world’s cultural traditions that offer better healthier,
easier and more effective solutions to everyday problems then we are being offered in stores and by big corporations. It took me several years to embrace the path the deodorant has lead me on but I am now offering it to the world.
THIS STORY BEHIND ZIRYAB’S BODY BREW LOTION DEODORANT
Making my original deodorant changed my life and not because I now have a whole company with it as the staring lead but because I was always obsessed with fighting my own body odor. Out of the shower, I’d slather on two different brands of antiperspirant. I’d put on a carefully selected shirt that didn’t show sweat stained because I sweat so much. Before I left the house I’d make sure I always had a third brand of antiperspirant in my purse – which I’d apply about 6 hours after my shower. If it was going to be a long day (more than 8 or 10 hours) I’d try to bring an extra shirt, a wash cloth and TWO brands of antiperspirant and use these to try to freshen up. Staying clean smelling was a constant theme for me that was always present and had enormous impact on my social life. Then, everything changed when I whipped up a batch of deodorant in my bathroom. I thought I was sort of following a recipe I’d read on the internet (turns out I got a bit confused and made it wrong – lucky me!). I thought that my potion would maybe help as an addition to my existing routine. It took me a long time to be certain that my deodorant was actually working as well as I thought it was working. About 16 months after that first batch, I finally felt confident enough to throw out my cache (20 or so) of unused and half used brand name antiperspirants.
THIS HISTORY OF ZIRYAB’S BODY BREW LOTION DEODORANT
Once I decided I had to share this deodorant with the world, I had to figure out why the deodorant worked and why the basic principles behind the effectiveness of the deodorant was such a big secret. It turns out, body odor is caused by acid loving bacteria. My deodorant made an environment that the acid loving bacteria couldn’t grow in. Why don’t the big corporations make a deodorant like mine if it is so awesome? Well, THAT is a fascinating discussion which I get into in more depth on my web site www.ziryabs.com. However, the short answer is profitability first. Secondly, trying to produce antiperspirants that would suit every single person every single time. Once I had some understanding of the situation, I launched ZirYab’s Body Brew Deodorant.
WHO IS ZIRYAB’S BODY BREW LOTION DEODORANT FOR?
Ziryab’s Body Brew Deodorant is for the following people: Those who struggle with body odor issues and find that even store brand, extra strength antiperspirants and deodorants (even when double or triple layered) don’t help you stay fresh all day (let alone into the night!); for those who just want a supper effective natural deodorant that really will work for them even on heavy sweating days; for people who hate the yellow staining under the arms that seems to come from wearing antiperspirants; for people who suffer from cutaneous granulomas caused by the aluminum-zirconium complex in antiperspirants; for people concerned with exposing themselves and/or their adolescent children to the chemicals found in antiperspirants.
WHY IS MY ZIRYAB’S BODY BREW LOTION DEODORANT SPECIAL?
ZirYab’s Body Brew is different because it comes in a fast-drying lotion form without the need for special applicators or specialty roll-on bottles. All you need to do is squeeze a little bit on a palm, rub your hands together to spread it out, wipe under your arms, wipe any remainder anywhere on your body (or a towel if you insist and done! There is nothing left on your hands that needs to be washed off, it just leaves your hands feeling perhaps a little softer and smelling a little fresher. Any residual will dust off in a minute or two. Meanwhile, what goes on wet, dries very fast – within 20 seconds – and you are ready to put on clothes. There is no stickiness and cloth won’t stick to your underarms. The deodorant isn’t like a mud or paste that crumbles when applying or needs strong rubbing to spread. The deodorant isn’t so oily as to make your pits feel slippery, uncomfortable and threaten to stain your shirt. And it stays put under your arm, no need to reapply, even after sweating. Best of all, if you find that the deodorant is too strong for you, you can dilute it with everyday household liquid like, say, water or get fancy and dilute with aloe, coconut oil, with hazel, milk of magnesium, rose water, lotion?. Whatever would be comfortable under your arms. My deodorant doesn’t seem to go bad and if you forget to shake the bottle or let it dry out, you can always add liquid and rehydrate. And it even get better because 6 oz lasts around 3 months for the average person but can last much longer if you find you need less.
WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS IN MY DEODORANT?
The ingredients are pretty simple and vary by which one you choose but the Original has: Aloe Vera Juice (good for skin, gentle), Baking Soda (Raises the alkaline so the acid loving bacteria has can’t grow. Baking Soda is aluminum free, always has been), Tapioca (dries excess sweat, keeps deodorant nice and thick. Tapioca is always non-gmo), Witch Hazel (it an astringent-it tighten your pores so minimizes sweating and acts as a antibacterial), Coconut Oil, Hemp Oil, Avocado Oil, Bentonite Clay (absorbs wetness), Frankincense Powder, Tea Tree Oil (an antibacterial), Neem Oil, (an antibacterial)T-50 Vitamin E (anti-oxidant) Xanthan Gum (thickener), Essential Oils
WHAT IS THE PROCESS OF MAKING DEODORANT
I am not big enough to make this outside of our little shop in Silver City New Mexico. I make it all myself by hand. My husband Kevin fills and labels the bottles and does all the shipping (He is awesome!)
DIRECTIONS FOR USING ZIRYAB’S BODY BREW LOTION DEODORANT
All you need to do is squeeze a little bit on a palm, rub your hands together to spread it out, wipe under your arms, wipe any remainder anywhere on your body (or a towel if you insist and done! There is nothing left on your hands that needs to be washed off, it just leaves your hands feeling perhaps a little softer and smelling a little fresher. Any residual will dust off in a minute or two. Meanwhile, what goes on wet, dries very fast – within 20 seconds – and you are ready to put on clothes. If you notice any rashing or reddening, this is likely due because the deodorant has pushed your alkaline tolerance above its preferred place. Luckily, this is good news, just let your underarms recover from any over doing it and lessen the amount you use, either by diluting with the above mentioned liquids or using less. I have more hints and discussions about this on my website www.ziryabs.com
