What happens during a natural deodorant transition period?
Some users report a transition period when switching from traditional antiperspirants and deodorants to natural deodorant. The theory goes that once your sweat glands are freed of aluminum, they may release fluids previously blocked by antiperspirants, causing an increase in moisture.
For those that may experience a transition period, it could last for a couple days, or a few weeks — ultimately, any transition depends on your unique body chemistry. So, when first switching to a natural deodorant, it’s important to keep in mind that application is key. For instance, Schmidt’s deodorants should be warmed with body heat before use by pressing the product against the skin to help soften the oils, which helps for a smooth application.
