About

The Facts about SodaWax

SodaWax’s humble beginnings originated in the Seattle glassblowing community. Frustrated with yellow aluminum-stained shirts after a sweaty day in the glass shop, we began a quest for a deodorant that was free of aluminum and toxins. Unable find a natural deodorant that could withstand the 100+ degree environment for long hours, we developed our own!

Why use Natural Deodorant instead of the ones you see at the grocery store?
I'll tell you why. Those other deodorants that most humans use contain ingredients that have been linked to various cancers. These ingredients include Parabens, Aluminum Compounds, Silica, Triclosan, Talc, Propylene Glycol and Steareth to name a few. They are used to mask odors and block your sweat glands from producing sweat. That doesn't seem natural to me.

SodaWax Natural Deodorant doesn't mask odor with perfumes. It's a combination of six simple, natural ingredients that work together to kill the odor causing bacteria for 12 hours or more. Each tube is hand-poured in small batches to ensure quality. Looking for a natural deodorant that actually works? Then look no further. Pick up a tube of Aluminum-Free SodaWax today!

I didn't always make deodorant. I actually made glass before that. Blown glass to be exact, for 20 years. I was fortunate to work with many of the world's best glass artists & artisans during my glass career and I still watch the blown glass world conti nue to evolve from a distance.

Frequently asked questions
So SodaWax is natural, but does it work?

We spent nearly two years developing and testing our formula before offering it to the public.
The combination of ingredients work together to kill the odor causing bacteria, not mask it with perfumes.
It really works! …and lasts the whole day long.

Why does the deodorant stick to the clear plastic cap when I remove it from my twist-up tube?

This happens on occasion. To avoid this from occurring, expose the deodorant by rotating the base. Twist the clear plastic sanitary lens and remove rather than pulling straight up. This will release the deodorant cleanly from the lens.

When I rotate the base on my twist-up tube it spins but the deodorant won’t come out. Am I doing it wrong?

This happens on occasion. Change in temperature may cause the deodorant to expand and stick to the tube walls. Just apply some pressure to the base while rotating to free the product from the tube. A little squeeze while turning should do the trick.

What is the white powder on the tip of the deodorant?

This is tapioca flour. We lightly dust the tip of each stick so that it will easily release from the clear plastic sanitary lens when removed.

Why does my SodaWax deodorant seem a bit softer in the Summertime?

Don’t worry, that’s natural. Our main ingredient is coconut oil which has a low melting point. You’ll notice a slight change in firmness depending on the ambient temperature but it will always maintain its solid form. Our deodorant is formulated not to liquify like other brands do, even in Summer.

Will SodaWax stain my clothes?

SodaWax Natural Deodorant is aluminum-free, so you never have to worry about those awful yellow pit-stained shirts. SodaWax is however a coconut oil-based product. Coconut oil is necessary to neutralize odor-causing bacteria. Like any oil, it has the potential to leave marks on clothing. For best results, apply deodorant to underarms and wait five minutes before dressing. This will allow the deodorant to absorb into the skin, giving you the best protection as well as minimizing oil transfer to your garments. To remove oil marks from clothing, simply wash garment in a hot wash cycle with your normal laundry soap. For persistent oil marks, add a non- chlorine oxygen bleach powder to your wash cycle.

Why use a natural deodorant instead of the ones you see at the grocery store?

We use only natural ingredients. Those other deodorants that most humans use contain ingredients that have been linked to Alzheimer’s disease and various cancers. These ingredients include parabens, aluminum compounds, silica, triclosan, talc, propylene glycol and steareth to name a few. These chemicals are used to mask odors and block your sweat glands from producing sweat. That doesn’t seem natural to us.
