Zest Deodorant Balm
This is our traditional take on conventional deodorants. Zest is a soft balm formulated with Babassu Butter and Shea Nilotica and complemented with a synergistic blend of antibacterial essential oils such as Tea Tree, Bergamot, Grapefruit and Clary Sage. These essential oils are also known for their natural deodorizing properties.
Natural deodorants, unlike anti-perspirants, will not block sweat. Swampy pits can be uncomfortable but remember that sweat is one of the ways for our bodies to cool down. Natural deodorants allow your sweat glands to do what is supposed to do – sweat.
To help control the sweating, we have added arrowroot powder and white kaolin clay to absorb excess moisture.
Our Zest DeoBalm comes in an eco-friendly and reusable jar as part of our effort to reduce waste.

Babassu Butter – harvested from the Babassu palm trees in Brazil. This butter/oil has a very soft texture. It looks like virgin coconut oil and shares a similar profile to it but it is much lighter and barely has any aroma. Since it has antimicrobial properties, it works wonders as a deodoriser. Plus, it gets absorbed quickly and leaves no stains.
Shea Nilotica – due to its high concentration of olein acid, it helps give Zest DeoBalm the soft texture we were looking for. This composition makes for easier application and absorbency. It is also rich in nutrients which soothes the skin.
Kaolin Clay – important element of our Zest DeoBalm. It is one of the gentlest clays available in natural skincare; this makes it suitable for all skin types. It complements the arrowroot powder with its ability to absorb excess moisture.
Arrowroot powder – helps to absorb excess moisture. As an absorbent it helps to reduce the greasy feeling.
Zest also relies on a synergistic blend of essential oils that are known to be natural deodorizers enhances our Zest DeoBalm. The blend is made of tea tree, bergamot, grapefruit & clary sage.
* Zest DeoBalm contains a small percentage of baking soda to help absorb odor.
Scoop a pea-sized amount with your fingers and gently apply the soft balm all over your underarms.
Our Zest Deobalm is formulated to be lightweight and easily absorbed but if there is excess in your fingers, wipe it or just rub it on other sweat-prone areas – your inner thighs, behind the knee, under the breasts or even your feet.
