Switching To Natural Deodorants & The Transition Period
If you’ve been relying on conventional antiperspirants throughout your life, making the switch to a natural deodorant stick like ours might involve a detox transition period. This essentially means that your underarms could go through an adjustment phase lasting around 2 to 4 weeks. It’s a natural process (and definitely a well-deserved one!), and we want you to be well-prepared for what lies ahead when you embark on the journey of using Hybrid Hippie’s ‘Down To Earth’ deodorant:
- Initial Adjustment: During the first few days of transitioning, your body might be expelling residues from previous products. You could notice some temporary changes in odour or moisture as your armpits begin to recalibrate.
- Sensitivity: Some individuals experience a slight increase in skin sensitivity during the initial phase. This is usually temporary and occurs as your skin gets used to the 100% natural ingredients in our deodorant.
- Odour Regulation: As your body adjusts, the deodorant’s natural plant-based ingredients work to neutralise odour-causing bacteria. While it might take a little time for your body to find its natural balance, the end result is usually better odour regulation.
- Sweat Normalisation: Traditional antiperspirants block sweat glands, but our ‘Down To Earth’ deodorant allows your body to sweat naturally. Don’t be surprised if there’s a temporary adjustment period as your body relearns its sweating patterns.
- Patience Pays Off: The transition phase varies for everyone. Some may adapt within a couple of days, while for others, it might take a bit longer. Patience is key during this time, as your body gradually aligns with the natural benefits of our deodorant.
Remember, this transition is a positive step toward a healthier, more natural underarm care routine. Embrace the change, give your body the time it needs to adapt, and soon you’ll experience the long-lasting freshness and confidence that Hybrid Hippie’s ‘Down To Earth’ deodorant provides.
When & How To Apply The Deodorant?
For optimal results, we recommend applying the deodorant in the morning, right after you’ve taken a shower. Alternatively, you can cleanse your armpits using soap and warm water before application. This ensures a clean canvas for the deodorant to work its magic throughout the day.
To get the most out of your deodorant experience, give the bottom of the stick a gentle push, revealing less than 1cm of the product. With this exposed, apply a thin and even layer under each arm. Our deodorant is carefully crafted in Dubai using purely natural ingredients, completely devoid of any fillers. This means that you won’t need to use a lot – a little truly does go a long way.
My Deodorant is Stuck! How Do I Push It Up?
Oops, seems like your deodorant is playing hard to get! Don’t sweat it, here are a few quick fixes for you. If you find your deodorant stick refusing to budge or move upwards, below is a video and steps that would guide you through the fixes:
- Stay Calm: First things first, don’t panic. It’s a common hiccup with deodorant sticks packaged in a paper push-up tube, and we’ve got solutions for them. We know pushing it out the first time could get a bit tricky sometimes – but on the bright side, that is one lesser plastic deodorant container out there!
- Warm It Up: Gently warm the deodorant stick by rubbing it between your palms for a few seconds. This helps soften the product and makes pushing it up a breeze.
- Roll It Out: If it’s still being stubborn, try rolling the stick back and forth on a table with your palm. This gentle massage can get the deodorant to loosen up. Especially in summer, the deodorant could sometimes stick to the soy wax coated sides of the tube.
- Flip It: Remove the Cap and flip the deodorant stick upside down on a flat surface and apply a bit of pressure as you push the base with both your thumbs. You don’t need Hulk strength – just a steady, firm push should do the trick.
You could also try using an object with a flat surface, instead of your thumbs, to help you push the base down.
- Patience is Key: Sometimes, a new deodorant stick needs a bit of time to get used to the push-up mechanism. Once you have freed the deodorant, it should all be good from here on.
Remember, it’s all part of the plastic-free deodorant stick adventure. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll be pushing up your deodorant like a pro. If the issue persists, don’t hesitate to reach out to us – we’re here to help you stay fresh and hassle-free!
Where Should I Keep My Deodorant Stick?
Ensuring the longevity of your deodorant is as simple as giving it the right home. Opt for a cool and dry spot to store it. Here’s the deal: avoid the temptation of leaving it in places that tend to get warm and humid – like the bathroom, for example.
You see, excessive moisture and warmth have a sneaky way of softening things up, and your deodorant is no exception. So, find a cozy corner away from steamy showers and blazing sunbeams. This small step goes a long way in preserving your deodorant’s consistency and ensuring it’s ready to roll whenever you are.

If you find your deodorant feeling a bit too soft to be pushed up or down, don’t fret – we’ve got a quick fix to get things back on track. Just follow these simple steps:
