Delivery confirmation is provided for all domestic shipments. While all foreign shipments are also provided a delivery confirmation number, those orders can only be tracked via United States Postal Service while in the

Please note that total delivery time is processing time plus ship time. Processing and ship times are estimates, and delays (although infrequent) may occur during high volume seasons or due to external conditions beyond our control (such as natural disasters or labor strikes).

Please make sure that your order of deodorant is delivered to a location where it will be received promptly. Avoid having your order left outdoors or in a mail box subject to extreme heat and/or direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time, as such conditions may cause your deodorant (or any deodorant for that matter) to melt.

In the case of international orders, the ordering customer in the destination country is 100% fully responsible for the shipment of their order once it leaves Jungleman Naturals' distribution center.  This includes shipments that are rejected or held by foreign (outside of the U.S.) customs in their destination country.  If the international shipment is returned to Jungleman Naturals, Jungleman Naturals will only refund the cost of product, but not the cost of shipment.  USPS does not reimburse the cost of an international shipment rejected by customs in a foreign destination country to Jungleman Naturals, therefore the customer bears full responsibility in such cases.

For bulk orders, please contact our sales and distribution department at:

sales@junglemannaturals.com



Q. What is your store return policy?

A.
Each customer has 30 days from the date of receipt of merchandise to make a return for refund or exchange (for a product of equal or lesser value). All returned items must be new and unopened.  We do not accept opened or used items for return, as our products are affordable personal care items that cannot be resold once used.

Refunds and exchanges DO NOT include return shipping cos
ts, which are non-refundable.  This means that the customer will bear the cost of shipping the returned item, and we will refund the cost of the item + original shipping cost.  If the customer attempts to circumvent this process by using bill on delivery services, we reserve the right to refuse the return shipment or to accept it and only refund the customer partially for the cost of the original item (and not original shipping cost).

Jungleman Naturals WILL NOT refund or replace any order that is handled through an outside, 3rd party,
U.S. based forwarding or logistics company, whether domestic or international. Once a domestic shipment from Jungleman Naturals leaves the hands of USPS and arrives at its destination (the shipping address listed on a customer's order) intact, it is delivered. If this destination is a U.S. based forwarding or logistics warehouse, the responsibility of the shipment (for ALL damages, delays, and mistakes that may occur to it) is transferred to the forwarding or logistics company from the point that it is received from USPS.

All customer service inquiries about such shipments will be taken up by the forwarding or logistics company in question.
Jungleman Naturals only bears responsibility for DIRECT shipments that are sent directly from Jungleman Naturals to their prospective destinations (listed as the shipping address on a customer's order) both in the U.S. and around the world. We DO NOT bear responsibility for the mistakes or delays incurred by U.S. based forwarding or logistics companies. As such, we DO NOT refund or replace deodorants when such instances occur, unless the forwarding or logistics company in question reimburses us for the ENTIRE cost of the damaged shipment (including original shipping cost) through their insurance.

To make a return, please email us at: sales@junglemannaturals.com. We will reply to your email with an RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) form.  Please fill out this form, then place it in the return package along with the returned merchandise, and send it to the return adddress listed on the RMA form.

Please allow 2 to 4 weeks for your return to be processed.  We reserve the right to approve or not approve any return (refund or exchange), based upon: return time, product condition,
and any other factors related to the purchase and/or return of the item.

Q. What is greenwashing?

A.
Greenwashing is the use of misleading or deceptive advertising used to form the perception that a company's products are environmentally friendly or all-natural, when in fact, they are not. Many deodorant manufacturers like to throw around the words "green," "Earth-friendly," and "organic," without any actual substance or positive environmental impact to back the hyperbole up. This is the epitome of greenwashing.

Both Tom's of Maine and Burt's Bees Wax are owned by Colgate-Palmolive and Clorox, two of the largest manufacturers of industrial and household chemicals in the world. In addition to Tom's of Maine, Colgate-Palmolive manufactures Speed Stick, one of the most chemical-laden standard deodorants in the world.

Colgate-Palmolive, held potentially responsible for hazardous waste at a federal toxic Superfund site in New Jersey, markets Tom's of Maine to unwitting customers as a safer alternative to the very deodorant it manufactures (in the form of Speed Stick). It begs the question as to what these corporations' true intentions are.

Do you really trust these large-scale chemical manufacturers when it comes to the well being of your under arms? Do you truly believe that they have your best interests in mind? Don't fall for the greenwashing strategies and gimmicks of these chemical manufacturers.

Jungleman Naturals is 100% privately owned, and will never sell out its customers for a chemical manufacturer of any kind. Nor will it ever dismiss its core value of being as safe, natural, and environmentally friendly as possible. Join the revolution against greenwashing, with Jungleman Naturals!


Q. Will Jungleman Naturals deodorants stop me from sweating?

A.
No, they will not. Nor should they.  It's unnecessary and unnatural to stop the human body from secreting sweat. Sweat is necessary to cool down the human body when it's overheated.  Jungleman Naturals deodorants attack the real problem, odor. They are 100% aluminum free and super-absorbent, so that you can secrete sweat naturally, but not have a swamp brewing in your armpits.  Jungleman gets the job done right. 


Q. How do Jungleman Naturals deodorants work so well without having such a strong fragrance?


A.
Jungleman Naturals deodorants were formulated to do what a deodorant should do: eliminate odor. Our deodorants' plant-based ingredients both prevent and completely eliminate foul body odor, so you can go about your day 100% odor free and 100% all-natural.

Other brands that aren't as effective at eliminating underarm odor use heavy fragrances to mask body odor. Whether these fragrances are artificial or natural is unimportant, as both types can be obnoxious and overpowering to the deodorant user, as well as those in the immediate vicinity. We here at Jungleman Naturals believe that no one should have to resort to smelling like men's aftershave or cheap perfume in order to tackle body odor.

We formulated Jungleman All-Natural Deodorant to be unscented, and Junglemint All-Natural Deodorant, Junglejuice All-Natural Deodorant, and Junglewoman All-Natural Deodorant to be lightly scented, because a deodorant's job is to eliminate odor, and nothing else. We leave it up to the individual customer to decide whether he or she would like to wear a certain fragrance or not. We believe in freedom of choice, as do you.

We know the horror of standing next to someone who smells like they've taken a cologne shower, or bathed in repulsive, "earthy" scents like patchouli, sandalwood, or calendula. Because of that, we pledge to you, our trusted customer, to NEVER use patchouli, sandalwood, and calendula scents in any of our products. You deserve better than that, which is why you came to our page in the first place. Help rid the world of offensive odor and fragrance at the same time, with Jungleman Naturals deodorants!


Q.
Are Jungleman Naturals products tested on animals?


A.
If, by "animals," you mean non-humans, then no. We do not test our products on anything other than willing human beings, which are indeed animals.


Jungleman Naturals products are cruelty free and vegan. Our products DO NOT CONTAIN any animal products whatsoever, nor will they ever.


Q. Are Jungleman Naturals products gluten free?


A. Jungleman Naturals products are 100% gluten free.  Though scientific studies have proven that gluten cannot be absorbed through skin, we thought we'd let you know in the event that you accidentally ingest our product, which we don't recommend.


Q. Are Jungleman Naturals products GMO free?

A. Jungleman Naturals products are 100% GMO free, meaning that they contain no genetically modified ingredients whatsoever.


Q. Does baking soda contain aluminum?

A.
Baking soda does not contain aluminum. It never has, does, or will, ever. Baking soda is simply sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3). It has been made for centuries by mixing sodium carbonate (Na2CO3), carbon dioxide (CO2), and water (H20). Aluminum, or any of its sulfates, are not used whatsoever to make sodium bicarbonate.

Baking powder, used as a leavening substitute for yeast in cooking, on the other hand, may contain sodium aluminum sulfate and/or sodium aluminum phosphate. Jungleman Naturals deodorants contain no baking powder, rather they contain sodium bicarbonate, also known as baking soda.

All food grade and commercial sodium bicarbonate is produced without aluminum. If someone claims to sell a "baking soda," and not a "baking powder" that contains aluminum, they are not truly selling baking soda, as baking soda is simply NaHCO3 and nothing else. They are required to label it as "baking powder" or some other variant.

This is why our ingredient list states "baking soda," and not "non-aluminum baking soda," "aluminum free baking soda," or some other deceptive variant.  Several baking soda manufacturers, in addition to a litany of deodorant and cosmetic manufacturers, are guilty of this deceptive practice that blatantly takes advantage of the confusion these days caused by the liberal, interchangeable usage of the words "baking soda" and "baking powder."

So now that you know the truth about baking soda and aluminum, don't let these manufacturers off the hook for their deceptive marketing practices aimed at extracting your hard earned money through trickery.  Let them know that you demand transparency and honesty in advertising.  Jungleman Naturals has always and will always maintain 100% honesty with its customers.  


Q. Is Jungleman All-Natural Deodorant for men or women? What about Junglewoman All-Natural Deodorant?

A.
Jungleman All-Natural Deodorant and Junglewoman All-Natural Deodorant, much like all of Jungleman Naturals' products, are unisex, meaning that they can be used by both men and women. We here at Jungleman Naturals don't believe in gender stereotypes, and neither should you. Jungleman All-Natural Deodorant is completely odorless, and Junglewoman All-Natural Deodorant has an extremely light lime scent.  Both work equally well for both men and women.

Contrary to what major antiperspirant companies have been telling you, body odor does not discriminate. Men and women alike are equally capable of stinking up a storm. All that "pH balanced for a woman" hocus pocus is just a marketing ploy to charge women more for an inferior product.

The beauty of Jungleman All-Natural Deodorant and Junglewoman All-Natural Deodorant is that their 100% all-natural scents (or lack thereof, in the case of Jungleman All-Natural Deodorant) work great for both sexes, so you won’t have to choose between smelling like men's aftershave or cheap perfume. Regardless of whether you're a man or a woman, Jungleman All-Natural Deodorant and Junglewoman All-Natural Deodorant are 100% "jungle"icious!


Q. Are Jungleman Naturals deodorant containers recyclable?

A.
Jungleman Naturals deodorant containers are 100% recyclable. This is just another way that Jungleman Naturals tries to minimize its impact on the environment, in addition to offering a 100% ALL-NATURAL product that contains no aerosols, hydrocarbons, or PFCs.

Jungleman Naturals deodorant containers are made of recyclable polypropylene, which corresponds to recycling code 5. Please recycle your Jungleman Naturals deodorant containers when you are finished using them. The Earth will thank you and so will we.



Q. "Finally, an all-natural deodorant that works!" Is it true that you coined that term?


A.
Yes, it is true. We began using the exact expression "finally, an all-natural deodorant that works," on our website in 2009. We pride ourselves on being the first natural deodorant of our type. That type being simple and effective, with only 4 ingredients, that are easy to pronounce.

At the time we first released our flagship product, Jungleman all-Natural Deodorant, there were no such products like ours on the market, and very few brands of deodorant, let alone natural deodorant, were sold on the internet successfully. We not only revolutionized the standard homemade folk remedy for an all-natural deodorant, we revolutionized the process in which it would be sold.

Until our brand came along most of the supposed "all-natural" deodorants that were available fell into two categories: mediocre concoctions of highly reactive root extracts that didn't really work, caused rashes, or smelled like concentrated incense, and green-washed, mainstream "natural" deodorants containing chemicals such as propylene glycol, sodium stearate, alcohol, and castor oil.

Fast forward to the present, and on every internet search for "natural deodorant" you'll find a myriad of competitors using that very same tag line: "finally, an all-natural deodorant that works," or some similar equivalent, in an attempt to piggyback on both our popularity and the popularity of such a search term in popular search engines. This was bound to happen, as all great products are often imitated, but when truly successful, never duplicated.

Competition is a great thing for consumers, even if it means that there are some brands out there that are essentially just knockoffs of our product (ranging from cheap to fancy, depending on who they are marketed to). Some have even gone so far as to make a similar logo (just imagine an unattractive, mutant version of our logo) to ours, or even have a similar mantra to our mantra of "100% all-natural, yet 100% odor free."  Fortunately, none of that has actually worked.

While it is troubling that the sole aim of many of these brands is simply to make as much money as possible off their customers, by imitating one or more aspects of our products, the failure of these competitors to sell a product of the same quality and reputation of ours actually helps us. We've had countless customers turn to us when they need an all-natural deodorant they can trust, and now, as the highest selling natural deodorant on the internet, that number is at an all-time high, which we owe both to the shortcomings of these competitors and the fierce loyalty of our own customers.


Q.
Are deodorant crystals aluminum free
?


A.
So called "all-natural" deodorant crystals make their claim to being aluminum free, yet possess ammonium alum as a principal ingredient. Ammonium alum, or ammonium aluminum sulfate dodecahydrate, is a sulfate of aluminum, and therefore is an aluminum salt, just like aluminum chlorohydrate, the principal ingredient in antiperspirants.

The deodorant crystal is actually one giant greenwashing scam designed to take advantage of "green" minds with clever marketing tactics.  In terms of potential toxicity, aluminum chlorohydrate and ammonium alum are one in the same; as is potassium alum, or any other aluminum salt. Through clever greenwashing propaganda, these crystal manufacturers have marketed their product as being "all-natural" or comprised of 100% natural mineral salts and nothing more.

Arsenic, lead, and mercury are also "all-natural," but that doesn’t exactly mean that they should be applied liberally to your underarms. All aluminum salts are "natural mineral salts," as they exist naturally in chemistry. Again, that does not necessarily mean that they are healthy.

Yet another piece of propaganda used by these crystal manufacturers is their insistence on claiming that their product is a natural "African" or natural "Thai" crystal. This can also be filed nicely into the realm of fantasy, as these crystals were all manufactured, and even if they weren't machined the way they were, they'd still contain the very aluminum salts that the consumer is actively trying to avoid, none the less.

When forced to concede that ammonium alum is indeed an aluminum salt that these crystals possess, deodorant crystal manufacturers will rush to claim that although their product does in fact contain aluminum salts, these salts have a chemistry such that the ions in the "natural mineral salts" are too large to pass through the skin.

Or they will claim that the ions are negatively charged, and therefore cannot enter the body. Both of these claims are patently false and have about as much empirical evidence to substantiate them as the tooth fairy. Skin pores, especially in the underarm regions, are millions of times larger than the ions in question, meaning aluminum will get in your body like sand falling through a cargo net.

So now that you know the truth about deodorant crystals, don't let these manufacturers off the hook for their outright, greenwashed lies. Let them know that we won't stand for dishonesty when it comes to what goes under our arms. Jungleman Naturals deodorants DO NOT CONTAIN any aluminum of any kind, and Jungleman Naturals will always maintain 100% honesty with its customers.


Q. Are deodorants containing magnesium hydroxide and activated charcoal safer or less reactive?

A.
There's a litany of backyard chemistry and bro-science flooding the internet these days regarding the supposed effectiveness and reactivity of magnesium hydroxide (milk of magnesia) and activated charcoal. These two ingredients are marketed as safer, less reactive alternatives to baking soda as a deodorant ingredient.

The plain truth is that they're not safer or less reactive in any way, shape, or form. Simple chemistry proves their claims to be false. Baking soda, or sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3), is an alkaline substance that has a pH around 10. Magnesium hydroxide has a pH of about 10.5 and activated charcoal (depending on the variety) can have a pH of up to 11. This may not seem like a large difference, but the pH scale is a logarithmic scale, meaning that the alkalinity would increase approximately 10 fold for every whole positive number added.

What this means is that baking soda, the very ingredient that magnesium hydroxide and activated charcoal are marketed against by the never ending wave of flavor of the month hipster deodorant brands, is far less alkaline and irritating to one's skin given identical doses. In fact, far less of these so called “miracle ingredients” can be added to a deodorant than baking soda, due to such alkalinity.

Jungleman Naturals Deodorants are formulated to have a much lower percentage of essential oils and baking soda than many, if not most natural deodorants containing baking soda on the market, and do not contain higher pH ingredients such as magnesium hydroxide and activated charcoal. Don't fall for the dishonest backyard chemistry and bro-science of these run of the mill hipster deodorants. Jungleman Naturals has always and will always maintain 100% honesty with its customers, making it a name you can trust.


Q. Have you ever thought about presenting your products on one of those shows like Shark Tank?


A. We're really surprised at how often we're asked this question. Perhaps it's because a few other (inferior) natural deodorant brands have made their way onto the show. While we have nothing against Mark Cuban, and admire his business acumen, Shark Tank is a made for TV, heavily scripted show that's weighted heavily in favor of the investors (or “the sharks,” as they like to call themselves). It is not an accurate representation of a real world pitch to angel investors.

Real presentations have far more empirical data and metrics, and far less gimmicky salesmanship. In real world presentations, investors do not demand almost instantaneous responses, let alone go so far as to insult entrepreneurs and their possible investments (like a certain bald, Canadian shark does routinely).

The terms offered by the “sharks” are almost always for a large share of equity in the company, yet provide a pittance in investment money. They are often back-loaded with royalties and and other clauses (such as convertible loans) designed to get as much money as possible out of the entrepreneur, regardless of the viability of the product or service they sell.

Real world investors are in it for the long term and want to grow with the entrepreneurs they've invested in, often heavily. Such is not the case on Shark Tank. The Sharks seek out instant gratification and a quick payoff, due to the likelihood of failure. This pretty much turns the show into a short term cash flow generating business, and not the sustainable, long term business incubator it claims to be.

Unlike traditional investment presentations, entrepreneurs are selected by a casting director. A business idea could be absolutely horrible, but much like The Price Is Right, if the person is zany, funny, or even combative enough, they'll be chosen to appear on stage before the sharks. With the exception of Mark Cuban, most of the sharks have a questionable business acumen and investment history, owing their popularity more to the perceived spontaneity of scripted reality TV than measurable accomplishments or empirical data.

The lengthy contract required to even appear on the show is another issue. There was a clause in place for a long time in which by merely appearing on the show, the entrepreneur would give up a 5% stake in their business and pay out a 2% royalty in perpetuity. Supposedly, Mark Cuban lobbied to get rid of this, but there is no official word on this.

The sharks are not experts in every field, and most of the time are not experts in the field of the entrepreneur. None of them are experts in health and beauty (particularly natural personal care products like ours), and moreover, they're motivated solely by profit, not necessarily selling the best product with the best ingredients. These investors are used to evaluating tech products, big box store consumer packaged goods, and in the case of one shark, clothing destined for the Ross clearance rack.

We've actually seen two deodorant companies present their products on Shark Tank. The presentations were poor and filled with hyperbole. Their level of store reach, online reach, distribution,and sales isn't noticeably higher due to their appearance on Shark Tank. In fact, the only noticeable difference is in the amount of paid spam ads we've seen for them, which just makes them appear as pushed payola products (a la Tom's of Maine) to educated consumers.

Savvy health and beauty consumers read the ingredient list meticulously, and are not easily wowed or turned by network television stars. They prefer results and efficacy. Big names don't necessarily prove those things. Neither company has solid reviews on 3rd party review sites and particularly on internet marketplaces like Amazon, where we easily outrank them with real customer reviews.

The sharks demand a high amount of pre-existing sales in exchange for their small amount of money. If a business is already selling well in this industry, with a solid long term game plan (as opposed to a get rich quick strategy), they really don't have a need to be begging for a pittance from someone who wants a large stake in their company and who's touch could negatively influence creative control.

While the show may be entertaining, it makes a mockery of real investors and real entrepreneurs. Being on the show has not proven to be beneficial in the long run for any natural deodorant manufacturer, so while customer questions regarding the show are flattering, we must respectfully decline.


Q. Do you use affiliate marketing or affiliate bloggers?


A.
Absolutely not. Nor will we ever. Affiliate bloggers, or affiliate marketers, are simply bloggers who write up paid advertisements that are meant to look like real, impartial, unpaid, product reviews (unbeknownst to the reader most of the time).  The reviews have the look and feel of a product review blog, but will almost always disclose (somewhere at the bottom of the page) that they receive compensation in the form of a commission from the makers of the featured product. Some won't even disclose their affiliation at all.

The disclosures (when actually present) usually look something like this:

"Woman's Day participates in various affiliate marketing programs, which means Woman's Day gets paid commissions on purchases made through our links to retailer sites."

The internet is a wonderful tool that has opened doors for a plethora of small businesses like ours. By purchasing fake or biased reviews, the integrity and utility of search engines, and the internet as a whole, are being eroded, while big businesses buy their way into internet relevance.

Affiliate blogging is an unethical practice that is ruining the internet. As such, we want to take no part in it, no matter how many of our competitors choose to do so. We value only real, impartial reviews, from real customers, not paid hype machines. We hope you do to.

Keep your eyes peeled for deceptive affiliate blogging and always search for legitimate, unpaid, unbiased, third party reviews. If a product had to pay its way into a good review, its not good enough for you as a customer.


Q. What does ALRS stand for? How do I prevent it?

A.
ALRS stands for: Awkward Locker Room Situation. As makers of the safest, most effective,100% all-natural deodorants in the world, we get a lot of product converts. Many have fled from inferior deodorant creams and pastes with serious applicability issues. After hearing countless tales of former deodorant cream/paste users having to actually apply deodorant in a public location such as a locker room, we here at Jungleman Naturals coined the term ALRS.

Just going through the everyday routine of a gym locker room can be a burdensome trial on its own for many. Having to apply deodorant from a little jar with a tiny plastic spoon that looks like it could have been taken from a children's cheese and cracker snack packet, or worse yet, your fingers, is the epitome of an awkward locker room situation (ALRS).

Jungleman Naturals deodorants have a superior formulation that allows them applied through a recyclable twist-up deodorant container much like a standard deodorant or antiperspirant would, but without all of the unwanted harsh
chemicals that come with such deodorants. Our deodorants are 100% all-natural, but unlike inferior deodorant creams and pastes, won't attract any unwanted stares or awkward glances while being applied in front of a locker room mirror.

Jungleman Naturals deodorants are 100% ALRS free, so you'll never be mistaken for applying spackling paste to your underarms, or stealing a child's cheese and cracker snack packet, or worse yet, having a mysterious white, powdery substance all over your fingertips (as was once so popular in the 1980s). Join the fight against awkward locker room situations, with Jungleman Naturals deodorants!


Q. Is there such a thing as a "deodorant detox?" Can it cause rashes, irritation, or swollen lymph nodes?

A. Contrary to the popular propaganda that many supposed "natural" deodorant brands have been spewing out over the past few years, there is absolutely no empirical evidence whatsoever to support such a theory. In spite of this, a litany of "natural" deodorant brands, specifically those that manufacture inferior pastes and creams containing a high percentage of baking soda, have used this myth as a way of rationalizing their products giving their respective customers a rash or irritation.

The theory of deodorant "detoxing" presumes that all those harsh chemicals that standard deodorant and antiperspirant users may have absorbed into their body via their underarms will suddenly leave the body the moment one ceases to use such deodorants, most of the time by opting for a natural deodorant (namely one that causes the user to either stink, or experience rashes, irritation, or swollen lymph nodes, or combination of one or more).

While no one will argue with the idea of using a natural deodorant to avoid harsh chemicals potentially being absorbed into the body, there is not one shred of scientific evidence that has shown that such chemicals would be immediately purged from the human body at the exact moment one began using a natural deodorant. There is also no evidence to substantiate the claim that increased body odor, rashes, irritation, and swollen lymph nodes are caused by said chemicals leaving the body.

If you use any deodorant (whether natural or standard, or even an antiperspirant) and you begin to experience increased body odor, that just simply means that your deodorant is not working for you. If you begin to develop rashes, irritation, or swollen lymph nodes, it is highly likely that you are experiencing contact dermatitis, which is simply irritation of the skin.

Contact dermatitis is caused by your skin having a bad reaction to one or more of the ingredients in your deodorant. It is generally grouped into two distinct types of contact dermatitis: irritant contact dermatitis and allergic contact dermatitis. Most of the time, the contact dermatitis experienced by deodorant users is irritant contact dermatitis, as allergic contact dermatitis is much more rare.

Virtually any deodorant ingredient can cause irritant contact dermatitis, but some have been shown to do so more often than others. Alcohols, peroxides, artificial colors, artificial fragrances, antiperspirant chemicals such as aluminum salts, harsh chemical emulsifiers, antifreezes such as propylene glycol, and preservatives are the most common causes of such irritation in standard deodorants and antiperspirants. In the case of natural deodorants, essential oils and baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) are the most common causes of irritant contact dermatitis.

In the case of essential oil, this usually means that you may be sensitive to the essential oil in your deodorant. Whether this is due to your own sensitivity, or the deodorant simply having too high of a percentage of essential oil, you should discontinue use and opt for another deodorant containing either a lower percentage of the offending essential oil, or one that does not contain it at all.

In the case of baking soda, this usually means that you are sensitive to the alkalinity of the baking soda in your deodorant. As baking soda is a base, it is lightly caustic (part of the reason why it is so effective against body odor). This is not normally enough to irritate one's skin, however, in large enough percentages, or in deodorant users with sensitive skin, the baking soda can damage the acid mantle, a very fine, slightly acidic film on the surface of the skin acting as a barrier to bacteria, viruses, and other potential contaminants that might penetrate the skin.

Whether this is due to your own sensitivity, or the deodorant simply having too high of a percentage of baking soda, you should discontinue use and opt for another deodorant containing a lower percentage of baking soda. Jungleman Naturals Deodorants are formulated to have a much lower percentage of essential oils and baking soda than many, if not most natural deodorants containing baking soda on the market.

Allergic contact dermatitis, unlike irritant contact dermititis, can be caused by any percentage of ingredient. Although far less likely to occur than irritant contact dermatitis, you should always check the ingredient list of any personal care product before you apply it to see if you have any pre-existing allergies to any of the ingredients listed.

We pride ourselves on making the most tolerable, hypoallergenic product on the market, but there will inevitably be a very small percentage of people who will have a reaction to certain ingredients in our formula, as it is virtually impossible to make any product 100% hypoallergenic or non-reactive.

If you have any allergies or intolerances to any of the ingredients in any of Jungleman Naturals deodorants please do not use these products.

If at any time you experience any irritation, redness, or rashes in or around your underarm areas, please discontinue using this product, as you may have sensitivity to one or more of these ingredients.



Q. How do I apply Jungleman Naturals deodorants?

A.
To apply Jungleman Naturals deodorants, simply uncap the deodorant stick and gently twist up as needed. Gently apply the deodorant to your underarms as needed to control body odor. For optimal application and performance, store at room temperature (between 55 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit).

Q.
Can I apply Jungleman Naturals deodorants directly after shaving?


A.
While many people apply our deodorants directly after shaving, we wouldn't recommend putting anything under your arms directly after shaving, including deodorant of any kind.

As your underarm skin is very delicate, even more so after a shave, it's always best to wait for any shaving related irritation to subside prior to applying Jungleman Naturals deodorants. This applies to any deodorant that you put under your arms, and not just Jungleman Naturals deodorants.


Q. What measures do you take to protect shipments against heat?

A.
To ensure that our customers experience Jungleman Naturals deodorants exactly as they would buying them from a retail store, all domestic (United States) orders are shipped frozen, with thermal insulation.

We've taken great measures to make sure that our product does not melt in delivery or at one's doorstep, including: formulating our deodorant to have a higher melting point than most standard and natural deodorants (our deodorants are solid up until about 85 degrees Fahrenheit, and semi-solid from there to about 90 degrees Fahrenheit), freezing deodorants prior to shipment, and keeping all 1st class shipments under 16 ounces and sending all shipments 16 ounces and over via priority mail (to ensure delivery to just about anywhere in the U.S. in 3 days or less).

Even with freezing and thermal insulation, most shipments can only remained chilled for 3 days at the most. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to please make sure that your order of deodorant is delivered to a location where it will be received promptly. Please check the status of your shipment as often as possible with the USPS tracking number we issue you to time your shipment’s arrival.

Avoid having your order left outdoors or in a mail box subject to extreme heat and/or direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time, as such conditions may cause your deodorant (or any deodorant for that matter) to melt. Jungleman Naturals is NOT RESPONSIBLE for deodorants that melt due to the aforementioned conditions.

All deodorants are shipped with a leak proof inner dome cap. If your deodorant container or the package that it came in arrives hot, DO NOT REMOVE THE INNER DOME CAP OR OPEN AND/OR TIP THE DEODORANT CONTAINER, as this may cause the product to spill out. Simply set the deodorant stick aside, upright, in a room temperature (between 55 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit) location, indoors, away from sunlight. Once the deodorant has fallen back into place below the cap, it will be ready for the next steps below.

If your deodorant arrives semi-solid, (only partly melted or butter-like), simply place it in the freezer. After about 30 minutes in the freezer, and a few hours of thaw time (it won't twist or rub on well until thawed properly) at room temperature (between 55 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit), it will function exactly as it would have prior to heat exposure.

If your deodorant is completely melted (runny liquid throughout), you can also simply place it in the freezer, however, you should stir it with some kind of stirring implement so that the ingredients inside don't separate prior to freezing. Again, after thawing at room temperature, it also will function exactly as it would have prior to heat exposure.


Q. My deodorant won't twist up. Is it defective?

A.
No, your deodorant is not defective. All deodorants are frozen prior to shipment and mailed with thermal insulation to ensure that all orders will survive transit (specifically during hot summer months or when sent to or through hot locations).

If your deodorant arrives frozen or doesn't easily twist up immediately after opening your package, please allow it to thaw at room temperature (between 55 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit) for a few hours before twisting the bottom dial to advance the product upward.  Your deodorant should be able to twist up shortly thereafter.

DO NOT TWIST THE BOTTOM DIAL WITH FORCE, as this may cause it to break off.  Jungleman Naturals is not responsible for bottom dials that break off due to customers not following these instructions.

Store and apply at room temperature (between 55 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit). Avoid storing in frigid temperatures as this may cause deodorant to harden, making application uncomfortable.

Q. My deodorant has a small hole or bubble. Is it defective?

A.
No, your deodorant is not defective. Although infrequent, small bubbles or holes can occur during the process of manufacturing Jungleman Naturals deodorants. This simply means that excess air was trapped into a molding as it cured. Your deodorant will be just the same as any Jungleman Naturals deodorant in terms of performance, ingredient composition, and volume.
