Sure...DETOX is the new buzzword. Partial hype - partial real life. Done right, it can be one of the most beneficial things you can do for your body to free yourself from everyday toxins. Unfortunately, Pit-Tox® makes no guarantees regarding ridding yourself of the toxic people in your life. Dang.
NOT TO BE NOSEY, but how many years have you been using commercial deodorant? Whoa, you're getting up there. Let's reflect - shall we? Take a moment to think about how many chemicals you have been putting on top of the most important lymphatic pathway in your body.
Antiperspirants clog the natural detoxifying sweat glands, creating build-up and poisons to linger around unwelcomed. Those toxins are like the guest who won't leave - they not going anywhere if you keep bringing them more chips. Meaning...slapping on more and more poisons day after day with sweat-blocking technology creates an enormous accumulation of dangerous chemicals in your body.
The most effective way to remove toxins and old commercial deodorant chemicals from your underarms is by clearing and detoxifying the lymph nodes and underarm area. By clearing out the old junk that has been clogging your pits, and creating a clean and bacteria-free canvas, you just set the stage to use natural deodorant - for your health!
Armpits are both the body's entry & exit points. After years of using commercial deodorant, many chemicals have been absorbed by the skin. An armpit detox will help pull out some of the chemicals and toxins stuck in the skin, tissue and lymph nodes under the arm, and will prevent a possible reaction which occasionally accompanies the switch to a natural deodorant.
>>Infused with all of the powerful, natural detoxifiers like Bentonite Clay, Activated Charcoal, and Kaolin Clay, Pit-Tox® will cleanse and moisturizes your pits & get you ready to use natural deodorant.
► Not only will PIT-TOX® Underarm Detox Paste clean out the build-up of toxins under the arms, but it may reduce the volume and odor of your perspiration, boost the immune system and decrease your cancer risk.
Pit-Tox is formulated at an effective 8.39 pH. Why is that important?
pH stands for power of hydrogen, a measurement of the hydrogen ion concentration in the body. Without getting overly technical, the pH scale is 0-14. Neutral pH is 7.0. The higher the pH (greater than 7) the more alkaline, while a pH lower than 7 is acidic. Proper pH varies throughout our bodies but ideally it should be slightly more alkaline (7.35 - 7.45). Our bodies work hard to maintain its pH balance amid our poor lifestyle choices and toxic environmental factors.
An alkaline substance (a pH of 8.3) strongly inhibits odors, and microbial growth may be reduced in the higher-pH environment.

Directions for Use: Apply PIT·TOX® UNDERARM PASTE with fingers to each underarm in a thin layer. Leave on for 15-20 minutes and rinse off in the shower with a shower scrubber, or use a course washcloth to remove dried paste. The exfoliating action of a rough washcloth helps to smooth and exfoliate underarms.* Use 3-7 days in a row - then 1-3 times a week for maintenance. Follow with a completely·natural deodorant for the rest of your life. For external use only. If irritation develops, discontinue use. Keep out of reach of children.
*Use with caution when applying Pit-Tox®, as excess paste may stain your perfectly white tank top. Rinsing off the paste with your favorite towels and washcloths may stain light colored fabrics as well due to the activated charcoal and bentonite clay.
•Commercial deodorant's long list of chemical ingredients – which include aluminum, phthalates, formaldehyde, parabens and even pesticides, is scary enough, but the concerns around putting these toxins on our skin is compounded by the belief that applying chemicals topically may actually be worse than eating them, because they enter the bloodstream without any filtering.
•The side effects of these chemicals include hormone disruption, cancer, Alzheimer’s, antibiotic resistant bacteria, allergies, skin irritation, weight gain, inflammatory responses, thyroid dysfunction and more!
•Antiperspirants don’t work – despite being laden with chemicals, these products don’t even live up to their name. The FDA only requires that a brand reduce sweat by 20% in order to claim it provides ‘all day protection’, while ‘extra strength’ products need only cause a 30% reduction in dampness!
•Sweating is healthy – perhaps the most important reason to avoid antiperspirant is because our bodies need to sweat in order to stay cool, eliminate toxins and support proper immune function. After all, we’re born with between two million and four million sweat glands for a reason!
•The reason your sweat smells is because the bacteria living in your armpits break down lipids and amino acids found in your sweat into substances that have a distinct odor. Antiperspirants address this problem using antimicrobial agents to kill bacteria and other ingredients such as aluminum that block your sweat glands. However, separate research has revealed antiperspirants affect the bacterial balance in your armpits, leading to an even more foul-smelling sweat problem.
In some cases, you MUST give yourself a month to adjust to a natural deodorant. When choosing one, check the ingredients. The most effective ones contain arrowroot or tapioca - ideally containing an absorber such as clay or charcoal. Some of the so-called natural deodorants are gel-like and contain propylene glycol - which frankly do not work. Your body is detoxifying and adjusting to a different pH which can take a while to adapt. BE PATIENT. YOUR HEALTH DEPENDS ON IT.
If the toxins in your pits do not spark joy - let them go.
