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!
After becoming teenage-boy-smelly after trying a supermarket brand and copping irritation and redness from some of the "big name" natural deodorants, this was my last ditch attempt at converting from clinical strength conventional formulas. That's right, I switched over from the big guns.
Thank you health-store lady for recommending this genius little tin, and thank you Woohoo for making a beautiful, easy, effective natural deodorant.
The learning curve was short and shallow - I scoop up a little product, rub vigorously between my fingertips until it becomes smooth, clear and luscious, and rub on in. It is a delight. The barely-there, soft earthy scent feels right. I feel like my underarms are getting the TLC they've never had (sorry for my years of neglect). Weirdly this has become my favourite part of my after-shower routine.
Like some kind of miracle I only need to apply every second day or so, even on days I exercise - don't even ask me how that works, this stuff is a game changer for me!
I've got my entire work crew onto your stuff. Can't rave enough about it.
During lockdown I felt like this was the best time for me to make the switch to a natural deodorant as the ‘transition faze’ wouldn’t offend anyone. I initially tried a product I could buy at the local supermarket and I was so, so wrong... the smell truly did offend. I was at the point of needing two showers a day and even then the stink wouldn’t leave me. I decided to give this brand a go before I gave up on the natural deodorant experience. Within 1 day I had transitioned from someone who could give teenage boys a run for their money in the b.o department to a normal everyday almost 30 year old. The information in the package was great as I had never used a paste before. I can confidently get through full days without becoming a stink monster. After exercising or really llllong days I can sometimes have a mild smell (which is easily washed away) but the days of double showers and arms by my side are gone! Thank you for making such an armazing product. I can’t wait to try your other ‘flavours’.
