Mellow is a very different Woohoo - a bicarb soda free, fragrance free, essential oil free, skin LOVING Woohoo All Natural Deodorant Paste.
Why? Because bicarb soda is a fantabulous natural deodoriser BUT it can upset some people. Even though we've carefully adjusted the pH of our other Woohoo deodorants to minimise the chance of irritation, there are some incredibly sensitive souls who can’t even tolerate the tiniest amount.
So we set ourselves a challenge - to create a deodorant that could bust odour even BETTER than Woohoo Urban and Woohoo Wild, but without bicarb. The mission was accepted with gusto by our very talented formulator (none other than Aaron!) and it turns out that this was probably his toughest challenge yet. But guess what? He triumphed.
Woohoo Mellow has the smoothest of textures, applies like an absolute dream, and busts body odour like you wouldn't believe. Even without essential oils.
Mellow's superstar ingredients are absolute crackers!
Magnesium Hydroxide (also goes by “milk of magnesia”) - You guessed it - the same stuff used to stop indigestion and heartburn. Who would have thought it also works an absolute treat at neutralising BO.
Activated Charcoal - What can’t it do these days? Well you can add another string to its bow because it not only works at keeping you dry it also adsorbs odour. Double thumbs up.
Olive Leaf Extract - One of nature’s most powerful antibacterial, antifungal and antioxidant plants. Smelly, sweat-munching bacteria are no match for this gift from mother nature. It boosts Mellow’s BO preventing power so a masking fragrance is not required.
These superstars are join the much loved old gang of Kaolin clay, zinc and Tapioca starch to make Woohoo Mellow a worthy addition the the Woohoo family.
Where oh where are the essential oils?
NOWHERE :) When we said we set ourselves a challenge we weren't kidding. In most natural deodorants essential oils play a pretty big role in helping stop body odour but we managed to create this incredibly effective deodorant without them.
If you know us at all, you'll know we have a love affair with essential oils but we had a few good reasons not to use them in Woohoo Mellow.
Essential oils, even though they're natural, can irritate sensitive skinned folk. And we wanted Mellow to be the deodorant that EVERYONE can use.
Ladies lucky enough to be pregnant often like to stay away from essential oils to avoid any possible side effects on their pregnancy (even though the likelihood is very small - better safe than sorry!).
Breastfeeding mamas usually like to avoid essential oils to make sure bub doesn't get upset by weird smells.
Some people just don't like smelly things. And that's A-O-K with us :)
Mellow has a very gentle coconut oil aroma that disappears as soon as it's rubbed into your skin. No lingering scent. You just smell like you. In a good way!
Just quietly, we've been hearing that Mellow is a new favourite of many a devout Urban and Wild user.
Have you gotten up close and personal with Mellow yet?
With clean, dry hands use the tip of your index finger collect to a pea sized amount of deodorant and warm it in your fingertips. Rub it under your arm until it disappears (just like you would a moisturiser).
P.S. If you’re used to using an antiperspirant, please remember that this isn’t one! This deodorant works by neutralising odour and keeps you dryer by absorbing moisture, but it DOESN’T block your pores with aluminium to stop you from sweating. It can take a couple of weeks for your body to adjust to this type of deodorant but it’s worth the wait!
This natural deodorant is good and is the first natural one that doesnt irritate my skin and give me a rash, which is amazing. Even other sensitive natural deodorants gave me rashes. The only trouble is that it doesnt last the day. I have to apply at night before bed and again in the morning then if it is a really humid and hot day and I sweat a lot, I have to apply again in the afternoon. So I go through a lot more product. It does get me through an hour gym session though which is a plus. Will still continue to use this product as it is really gentle on my very sensitive skin and is still good value for money.
Mellow deodorant paste
This deodorant worked well for me I had no reactions like I have with other brands will defininetly purchase again.
I have been using WooHoo for quite a while now, and decided to try Mellow. I am very happy with the result no sweating or smell. But the texture of the paste is quite gritty, Not sure if this is meant to be the consistency or not. I will continue to use these products but not the Mellow
Love it. Works all day and doesn’t give me a rash. Doesn’t interfere with scented oil I wear either. Just wish it was in a tin like the smaller version.
Thank you very much for taking the time to share your wonderful review. We couldn't be happier hearing how much you love our 'Mellow' and how well it's working for you. Woohoo!!
We have our 70g Bioplastic (sugarcane) tub as you know but we also stock a 60g Cardboard Tube and and 40g tins. You can check them out here https://www.woohoobody.com.au/
Great Intro paste!
Perfect paste to see how your body will respond beyond the sample packs.
Zero rashes and no reactions to this.
However I did find after using it for a few weeks, I needed a bit more strength as I felt I was cutting through this particular one.
Which only meant I have now expanded my repertoire which isn't a bad thing at all :)
