A customer survey was carried out by Novus.
The target group was women and men aged between 18 and 65. A total of 611 interviews were conducted, in which 567 people said they bought deodorant. Of the whole group, fifty percent of respondents gave either positive or fairly positive feedback on Desti, and 3 out of 10 would buy one of the variants. Novus Sweden panel, 6-13 November 2015.
WORKS WELL, FRESH FRAGRANCE, HEALTHY – I am careful about what I use on myself and the kids. Desti works as well as deodorants that contain aluminum, even in summer. My daughter loves it, and my husband thinks it's great because it doesn't stain his shirts. The packaging has a luxurious feel. – Susanne
FRESH, UNISEX, INNOVATIVE – Desti antiperspirant eliminates odor from sweat. It feels like using any deodorant, except that I'm not pumping my body full of aluminum. The fragrances are unisex and not too strong. I'm very pleased with it. – Henrick
HEALTHY, PLEASANT-SMELLING, SAFE – I really like the fragrances. The biggest difference compared to ordinary deodorants is that I'm not quite as dry under the arms. But it gets rid of odors, so it's not a problem. It's very reassuring that it doesn't contain aluminum, and it feels more natural than other deodorants. – Beatrice
WORKS WELL, SAFE, SMELLS GOOD – I think it gives better results than deodorants that contain aluminum. Desti keeps me feeling fresher for longer, and leaves no stains on clothes. The packaging format is good, I feel like I get more out than with other deodorants. I also think the fragrances are really nice. – Johnny
Desti Deodorant has a patent-pending, gentle formula whose active substances are salt and bicarbonate. Salt inhibits bacterial growth, which can be responsible for unpleasant smells, while bicarbonate absorbs odors. The antiperspirant effect is the result of a combination of salt and propanediol.
Most people swap from aluminum-based to salt-based deodorant without any problems. However, there are certain differences to be aware of. A deodorant with aluminum creates an acidic environment in the armpit (low pH value), and the skin may be affected by the aluminum for several days after last use. A salt and bicarbonate-based deodorant instead creates a weakly alkaline environment (higher pH value). Our scientists explain that the salt and bicarbonate in Desti may react with any remaining aluminum. This may show up as red, irritated skin. In rare cases, blisters may also develop. This reaction can be mistaken for allergies, but the body already has salt in it, so you would not be allergic. Bicarbonate does not cause any allergies either. The reaction is therefore simply irritation. If you experience even the slightest discomfort, we recommend you to avoid using deodorant for a few days. You may use Desti Shaving Balm to moisturize and strengthen your skin. The aluminum will then have been eliminated from your body and you can try Desti Deodorant again. Use the shaving balm at night time and the deodorant in the mornings, ideally on damp skin to dilute the salt slightly. Normal skin will tolerate Desti without any discomfort. Once your skin is used to it, Desti can usually also be used on sensitive skin. WARNING! Never use deodorant straight after shaving, hair removal or laser treatment. This is applicable to both aluminum-based and salt-based deodorant. You can find out more in the section ‘Do you experience soreness or irritation after using Desti Deodorant?’. We hope this information will help you discover the advantages and enjoy using your aluminum-free deodorant.
As far as we know, Desti Deodorant is the world’s first salt-based antiperspirant. The patent-pending formula is free from aluminum, triclosan and parabens, substances which are considered by some to be harmful to health and present in most antiperspirant deodorants on the market.
If you have used aluminum-based deodorant for a long time, you may have a total blockage of your sweat glands. Normally, the aluminum will leave your body within three days, but the body’s waste products remain in your lymph glands. If you then avoid using deodorant for a while, these waste products will also be eliminated from your body. The result will be an odor of sweat and other bad smelling substances that can occur for up to a week, whilst your body cleanses itself from the impurities. If you use Desti at the same time, the combination can cause varying degrees of irritation in the armpit, as the salt and bicarbonate react with other substances. Avoid using Desti until the body has eliminated the waste products and then begin by using small amounts, then increase as needed, ideally in combination with Desti Shaving Balm at night.
