Forget your face! A $25 mask for your UNDERARMS promises to ‘detox’ the area after years of using aluminium-based deodorants
- An Australian company has launched an underarm mask to clear toxins away
- After years of using aluminium-based deodorants your pores can be clogged
- So the mask, which contains bentonite clay and charcoal – works to clear them
- They suggest following the process with their $18.95 roll-on deodorant
An Australian company has launched a clay-based underarm mask that claims to ‘detox’ your pores after years of using aluminium-based antiperspirants.
As the world moves towards more natural and environmentally-friendly beauty products, Kind-Ly is championing the trend for those who want to give their pits a bit of extra care.
Their $24.95 ‘armpit detox’ is made to be applied daily for two weeks – or until you feel as though any irritation like bumpiness or redness has subsided – and then weekly as a maintenance treatment thereafter.

The hope is that the customer will then start applying natural deodorant in a bid to keep up their eco-minded living, with the brand selling five different options for $18.95 each to get you started.
Aluminium is used in antiperspirants to ‘block’ the pores and prevent the individual from sweating profusely – but it also stops the body from being able to get rid of these toxins.
This is why Kind-Ly’s founder Lisa Raciti is so passionate about developing a blend of essential oil-based deodorants to keep you ‘fresh, dry and odour-free’.

But before natural deodorants can work to the best of their ability the area needs to be thoroughly cleansed – and that’s where the mask comes in handy

Containing just a handful of ingredients, the Australian bentonite clay helps to deliver essential vitamins and minerals to the body like calcium, magnesium and iron, which are all contained within the clay.
The activated charcoal has a negative electrical charge which causes it to attract positively charged molecules, such as unwanted bodily toxins, and draw them out.
How can you detox your underarms?
Keep Up The Fluids: Drinking plenty of water during a detox is important as it assists in removing toxins from your body and keeping you hydrated.
Set Your Armpits Free: Give your underarms a little air and room to breathe by wearing lightweight, breathable fabrics. Avoid synthetic fibres and anything that clings tightly to the underarms.
Watch What You Eat: Certain foods will change the way your body odour smells. So if possible, aim for a mainly vegetarian diet during your detox period, which will help maintain a neutral body odour. Also beware of any foods with a strong odour, such as garlic and onions.
Dry Off Properly After Showering: Be sure to carefully dry off your underarms after showering. Bacteria love warm, moist environments and the last place we want bad bacteria growing is in our pits.
Sweat It Out: Don’t be afraid of sweat during a detox. In fact, a little exercise (or sauna) to build up a sweat will help to speed up the detoxification process as your body relearns how to function and control bacteria again.
Go Natural: During and after your armpit detox, it’s important to only use natural deodorant.
Despite the strange inky look of the mask – and the odd stares you’ll likely get from housemates – there are a number of positive reviews about the mask on their website
And finally the inclusion of colloidal silver eradicates unwanted bacterial strains and microbes that sit on the skin.

‘It took me a few weeks to get used to the way the product worked but now I love it,’ one person said.
Another added: ‘Absolutely love this stuff! Made the transition to natural deodorant so easy and I still use it three to four times per week for a deep clean. So highly recommend it.’
