Baking Soda. If you’re a crunchy lover of all things natural, you probably have an intimate relationship with this magic powder. It cleans, it heals, and it keeps your cookies soft and fluffy.
But did you know that Baking Soda can also keep you feeling and smelling fresh? It has powerful odor absorbing abilities, and studies have suggested it may even have strong antimicrobial properties. That’s why we put baking soda in our Supernatural Deodorant, to help with any funky situations that may come up and get you back to dancing through life.
Baking Soda in Deodorant, Explained
Baking soda is a type of salt, normally appearing in a white, fine powder form. The concept of acids and bases will help to explain baking soda’s effect on your body.
You may have heard about the pH scale, it ranges from an acidic 0 to a basic 14, with a 7 being neutral. Baking soda sits at a 9 on the scale, meaning it is more basic. Our skin usually falls somewhere between 4.5-6.5, in the more acidic range.
When applied to the skin, the basic baking soda mixes with our skin’s acidic, oily protective layer (also known as the acid mantle) to neutralize your pH level, in turn helping to eliminate any odors it may have produced. Baking Soda naturally helps our body to balance itself and may even help in preventing any nasty bacteria build-up that can occur from too much acid in our sweat.
The Big Question Mark on Baking Soda
Natural Deodorants have come a long way since hippies, armpit crystals, and other questionable ingredients. The truth is that in most cases where negative side effects like irritation and rash occur in the newer natural deodorants, are due to formulas that use an excess of an ingredient.
Being a natural focused company with a love of rigorous testing, we’ve found that a little goes a long way. You only need a small amount of baking soda to help keep your skin’s pH balanced, which is exactly how we’ve formulated our Supernatural full-body deodorant. We add a small loving amount that is gentle with your skin and still gets the job done better than anything you’ve tried before.

Try for Yourself
You can try a little science experiment at home by doing a patch test on your skin. Apply a bit of baking soda to a small area of your skin around your armpit, for example, and wait 48 hours to see if any irritation arises. If everything checks out after 48 hours, you’ll be ready to give Supernatural Deodorant a chance at transforming your life. Learn to love yourself even more with Supernatural.
