Say bye-bye baby to nasty chemicals, and hello to Black Chicken Remedies’ natural and organic deodorant paste. With a reputation as one of the hardest working natural deodorant products on the market, the Axilla deodorant ticks all of the right boxes. It’s vegan, cruelty-free, Australian-made, contains botanical extracts and it supports your bodily functions (minus the funk).
Despite it’s bad rap, sweating is actually good for you. Our sweat helps us regulate our body temperature, maintain a healthy immune system and expel any toxins. Since our armpits are home to hundreds of sweat glands, we need to make sure we’re taking care of these sensitive patches of skin. If you’re planning on making the switch to 100% natural deodorant, or want to see why it’s so popular, keep reading! We’re also giving away some freebies at the end, so stay tuned.

What is the Axilla deodorant paste made from?
This natural deodorant is a unique blend of 100% natural and organic ingredients. Created to neutralise odour, this deodorant paste won’t stop you from sweating. Remember, this is a good thing. Without any harmful chemicals or sweat blockers, the paste works with your body, and ensures you smell and feel fresh for hours.
What the deodorant paste doesn’t have:
- Propylene Glycol
What it does have:
- Organic shea butter
- Organic coconut oil
- Organic camellia tea oil and vitamin E
- Sodium bicarbonate
- Kaolin clay
- Vegetable glycerin
- Clove essential oil
So, what do all of these wonderful ingredients and pure essential oils do? Organic shea butter and clove essential oil work as an anti-inflammatory, while the coconut oil and sodium bicarbonate neutralise odour. Arrowroot, kaolin clay and vegetable glycerin help to absorb moisture, and the camellia tea oil and vitamin E soothe skin irritations. The skin under your arms is sensitive, so it needs good skin care too. With all of this goodness packed into a little deodorant paste, we promise you won’t want to go back to deodorant sprays and roll-ons!
Making the switch to all-natural
Making the switch for your every-day deodorants to natural deodorants is simple for most people, but everybody is different. Some armpits might need a week or so to adjust, so make sure to give your body plenty of time to adapt.
For some of us, the natural deodorant can trigger a pit detox. This is just the body’s way of releasing clogged toxins from your skin and letting your pores relax. Your body odour might be stronger than usual, but there’s no need to be alarmed - it doesn’t last long.
Top tip: help your body adjust to the new deodorant by working up a sweat, and drinking lots of water! Don’t forget to eat well - it all helps. Just for the first couple of weeks, it’s a good idea to cut back on your second cup of coffee/glass of wine for that day too.
The Axilla deodorant is completely invisible upon application, which means you don’t ever have to worry about deodorant stains - especially on your favourite black shirt! Trust Axilla to help your body do what it needs to do. You’ll smell amazing all day, and feel fresh too. Not to mention, you’ll be helping the environment by going natural too!
How to use deodorant paste
Applying the Axilla deodorant paste is super easy - it’s like moisturising your armpits! Just follow our tips below for perfection application:
- Get a pea sized amount on your finger.
- Rub the paste into your armpits, gently, until it warms up and dissolves.
- Enjoy fresh, clean armpits all day! There’s no need to reapply the deodorant paste throughout the day. Some lovers of Axilla have said they’ve had fresh armpits for 48 hours, even after going to the gym and travelling!
- Don’t put the deodorant paste on right after shaving. When we shave, we make hundreds of tiny cuts in our already sensitive skin, and putting the paste on straight after could cause some irritation. If you can, try waiting a day or shave at night instead.
- Keep the Axilla deodorant paste in a warm spot. Your bedroom or makeup bag is a good place! This will prevent the paste from hardening up when it’s cold.

Why do I smell worse with natural deodorant?
Like we mentioned above, you can experience a "pit detox" when you start using a natural deodorant paste. No need to worry though! This is just your body unblocking your pores and making your underarms toxin free - it doesn't last long and soon you'll be smelling fresh as a daisy.
To make a tan last longer, you should moisturise daily, use a gradual tanner to top up and exfoliate before you tan.
