As a personal care brand for children and teens, we only use high-quality, naturally-derived, allergy-friendly, and kid-safe ingredients in our products.
In fact, our products meet the “Beyond Clean Beauty” standards created by Whole Foods Market — considered among the strictest set of standards in the cosmetics industry for quality sourcing, environmental impact, results, and safety. We felt it was especially important to meet these stringent standards when creating products for kids.

Derived from the witch hazel plant, witch hazel extract is a common astringent that naturally contracts the underarm pores to help reduce sweating (but doesn’t stop it altogether like aluminum). It also has properties that combat odor-causing bacteria.
Commonly used in cosmetics, kaolin is a natural, off-white clay powder that’s mined directly from the earth. We use it in our deodorant to help absorb underarm sweat, as well as to enhance the consistency of the product. It’s also used in our 4-in-1 Body Powder as a moisture-absorbing ingredient.
Gum Arabic, also known as Acacia Gum, is a natural food-grade gum that comes from the sap of the acacia tree. Instead of reaching for a cheaper synthetic stabilizing chemical, we use gum arabic as a safe and effective solubilizer that keeps the essential oils in our deodorant nicely combined with the other liquid ingredients, preventing separation.
Triethyl Citrate is a natural “ester” that’s derived from pure grain ethanol and citric acid. It’s used a lot in food, but it also happens to be a great deodorizing ingredient because it kicks in when sweat is present and prevents the sweat from breaking down into components that bacteria find to be delicious (which leads to smells). We use it in our Natural Sport Deodorant and Fresh Foot Spray.
Commonly used in baby creams and sunscreen products, zinc oxide is a natural mineral powder that happens to be very effective in minimizing the growth of new, odor-causing bacteria under the arms and elsewhere on the body. It also has a lubricating quality that helps create a silky smooth finish in our deodorant and body powder.
Zinc oxide powder generally comes in two “sizes”: non-nano (very small particles of zinc) and nano (unfathomably small particles of zinc). Although zinc is a very safe substance, there are some concerns with using the nano form of zinc oxide for skin applications as it’s sometimes believed (though has been disproven) that the particles are so small that they can enter the bloodstream through the skin. Whether true or not, we use only non-nano zinc oxide in our products to eliminate this concern altogether.
It sounds a bit weird, but Xanthan Gum actually comes from a type of bacteria. When this bacteria is fed sugar, it develops a sticky coating that’s then collected and processed into this natural, food-grade gum. Xanthan gum is an excellent thickener, so we use it to give our deodorant a creamy, non-runny consistency that prevents drips and makes it a breeze to apply.
Citric acid is one of the most common food additives in the world (typically for preservation and/or flavor). We use it to moderate the pH of our formulas, and to enhance the effectiveness of the preservatives.
Not all alcohols are created equal — the yucky, drying stuff to avoid in skincare products is isopropyl alcohol (also known as rubbing alcohol). Benzyl alcohol, on the other hand, is an organic alcohol that occurs naturally in fruits such as apricots and cranberries. We use a very small amount in our products as a preservative — an essential component of all liquid skincare formulas to create a safe shelf life by ensuring no bacteria or mold can develop inside the bottle. Unlike many common synthetic preservatives, benzyl alcohol is mild and non-carcinogenic.
Ethylhexylglycerin (say that 10 times fast!) is naturally-derived from vegetable oil. It’s a safe preservative that we use in small amounts as an alternative to harmful parabens. Preservatives are an essential component of all liquid skincare formulas to ensure no bacteria or mold can develop inside the bottle. As with the benzyl alcohol preservative we use, ethylhexylglycerin is mild and non-carcinogenic.
Essential oils are the natural oils pressed from various plant and fruit leaves, seeds, stems, and peels. We use 100% pure essential oils in our products as a natural fragrance alternative to damaging artificial fragrances that are common in other deodorants and skincare products.
Due to their high concentration, essential oils can actually be irritating to skin when used improperly (i.e., undiluted) and in large quantities. However, we use only a very small amount in our formulations which is even less than the quantity considered safe for kids and teens.
Fresh Lime contains the essential oils of lime and lemon.
Mountain Mint contains the essential oils of spearmint, cedarwood, and peppermint.
Vanilla Dream contains just vanilla oleoresin.
Sunset Bloom contains the essential oils of grapefruit, lavender, and lemon.
Orange Zest (Gear Therapy) contains the essential oils of orange, lemon, lemongrass, and tea tree.
Tapioca Starch is the flour of the root of the cassava plant, most commonly found in Brazil. We use it in our 4-in-1 Body Powder because it’s effective at absorbing moisture and gives the powder a nice silky feel, which also reduces friction on the skin and helps prevent chafing.
A natural derivative of magnesium salt that’s extracted from seawater. It’s a common ingredient in natural deodorants, but we use it in our 4-in-1 Body Powder to help neutralize all-over body odor.
Originally derived from the comfrey plant, most allantoin today is synthetically produced, but with a resulting composition that’s identical to the natural version. It’s a safe, non-toxic powder with excellent moisturizing, soothing, and anti-irritant properties. In other words, it makes skin feel really good! We use it in our 4-in-1 Body Powder and our Fresh Foot Spray.
Sodium Chloride is simply salt! And salt has many interesting and beneficial properties beyond just flavoring our food. We use natural sea salt in our Fresh Foot Spray to help cleanse the feet and neutralize bacteria. In our Gear Therapy Pods we use natural rock salt to pull in moisture that then gets absorbed by the other ingredients.
Vegetable Glycerin is most commonly derived from palm trees, and has a wide variety of uses in food, beauty, and industrial applications. We use it in our Fresh Foot Spray to help moisturize and replenish the feet after strenuous activity.
The Pennywort plant, also known as Gotu Kola and Indian Pennywort, has a number of uses in traditional Asian medicine. It’s often used to treat minor cuts and burns, and has also been found to have effective antifungal properties. We use it in our Fresh Foot Spray to help neutralize the fungi that cause athlete’s foot.
Magnesium Sulfate is the fancy term for Epsom salt! This natural salt has been used for centuries to relieve aches and pains, and that’s exactly why we use it in our Fresh Foot Spray — to help soothe tired feet.
This waxy zinc salt is derived from castor oil. It’s effective at lifting existing odors out of fabric, so we use it in our Gear Therapy Spray to do just that.
Silver has been used for decades as an antimicrobial substance that crushes bacteria. Silver Citrate, a newer variation, is basically tiny silver ions suspended in liquid, which allows the benefits of silver to be applied to liquid products. We use it in our Gear Therapy Spray to help neutralize odor-causing bacteria on your gear, and also to preserve the liquid product in the bottle.
Silica Gel comes from silica, which is a natural substance and one of the main constituents of sand. It’s safe, non-toxic, and one of the best desiccants (moisture absorbers) out there. We use it in our Gear Therapy Pods to absorb the moisture from your sports gear, because that moisture is what causes the stink!
Activated Charcoal is charcoal that’s been processed to have lots of tiny pores which can trap odor particles from the air. It can be derived from a number of materials, but ours comes from coconuts. We use it in our Gear Therapy Pods to help capture and remove the smells from your gear.
Pine is one of the more absorbent woods. When processed into pellet form, it’s even more absorbent. We use these pine pellets in our Gear Therapy Pods to support the silica gel in absorbing odor-causing moisture from your sports gear.
