Please use within 12 months of purchase. Ensure that the Deodorant Cream is mixed completely before applying (some separation is normal), then scoop a little with your finger and very gently apply to the entire underarm area until completely absorbed. Go about your day, odor-free! The Deodorant Cream may arrive in a liquefied state, but don't fret! Soapwalla doesn’t use any unnecessary waxes or hardeners, so temperature fluctuations can alter the solidity of the deodorant, but in no way compromises the effectiveness of the product. Simply mix well, then pop the container in your freezer for about 20 minutes until it becomes solid again. Your Deodorant Cream will be as good as new!
