Ta-keh-su-mee, known as bamboo charcoal, is a time-honoured Japanese secret for odor control and detoxification.
Stay odor free all day with a combination of activated charcoal and natural fermentation technology which fights odor-causing bacteria.

Key Ingredients:

  • Activated bamboo charcoal is ideal for eliminating toxins from your body and has the power to clean deep inside sweat glands.
    Activated charcoal has a porous surface that acts like a magnet, which chemically binds substances, such as bacteria and toxins to draw them out.
    Charcoal is so potent that one gram (the size of your fingernail) can absorb enough toxins to fill four tennis courts.
  • A blend of Sakura makes the air fills with a sweet, elegant aroma as the airy pink blossoms bloom and float delicately off the trees.

Stages of Detox

A 2 to 4 week transition period can be expected when transitioning from antiperspirant to natural deodorant.

Studies show that antiperspirant users experienced an increase in odorous bacteria in the underarm area when they stop using antiperspirant.

NOTE: Each stage of the detox may vary depending on your body chemistry.

  • WEEK 1: Our activated charcoal formula pulls toxins from your pores and helps to neutralize odor.
  • WEEK 2: Once you stop using antiperspirant and switch to natural deodorant, you will experience an increase growth of odor-causing bacteria in the underarm area. You may also feel additional moisture, which is temporary.

PRO TIP: If you suffer from excessive body odor, use the underarm bar to eliminate odor-causing bacteria on your skin BEFORE applying natural deodorant.

  • WEEK 3: Bacteria levels may begin to subside. Underarm moisture levels normalize and the amount of odorous bacteria will begin to decline.
  • WEEK 4: Your body should have fully adjusted to natural deodorant. Continue to use the takesumi detox as a daily deodorant. Our charcoal formula will continue to detox and deodorize.

    Love it, but pricey

    This is probably the only natural deodorant that works for me. However, I'm surprised at how little there actually is in the package. It seems like a lot, but I'm burning through this so fast, I don't know if I can justify the cost.
