How does it work?
Pit Stop addresses body odour in several ways. It adjusts the PH level of the skin’s surface, making it unsuitable for bacteria to multiply. In addition, our blend of essential oils featuring Frankincense, Cedarwood, Lime and Patchouli, is naturally anti-bacterial and anti-microbial preventing the survival of bad odour producing bacteria. The base oils of organic shea butter and coconut oil add moisturising qualities for your under-arms and Calendula extract is known for its gentle skin-soothing properties. Our oil to powder formula assists absorb perspiration.
Pit Stop is a deodorant, not an antiperspirant (an antiperspirant prevents sweating), so you will still sweat but smell good naturally and stay that way all day.
Instructions: Apply a pea-sized amount of Pit Stop deodorant either straight after showering (or in an emergency, after sweating, and it will neutralize the bad odour). Best of all – Pit Stop lasts all day and you haven’t put crazy chemicals into your body for the privilege of smelling good!
TIPS for using a Bi-Carb based deodorant:
Ideally, apply and wear your deodorant during the day. After showering with a gentle soap in the evening, give your under-arms a break at night, to re-adjust their natural pH, then go again with a fresh application of Pit Stop the next morning!
Wash clothes regularly in warm wash 35-40 degree water and you should have no problem with your deodorant marking your clothes, the oils and powders are soluble in warm water.
Note: If you have a sensitivity to essential oils or bi-carb soda, test a small patch first or if you have just shaved, wait for 24 hrs before using. A very small percentage of people, who have been using commercial antiperspirants, may have an initial reaction to sodium bicarbonate. In this case, it is advisable to go deodorant free for a couple of weeks, washing regularly with a gentle castile soap to eliminate the build-up of toxins from your previous antiperspirant.
Born from an obsession for organic, natural soaps, Valors’ beginnings were humble: sellling at local markets in the Byron Bay hinterland, our products were an unexpected hit. More and more men (often with their partners encouraging them) were looking for simple skin, shaving and beard care products that weren’t chock-a-block full of nasty and unnecessary chemicals and most importantly that smelled delicious.
Victoria Clayton, then Head Honcho of Valor Organics, had many years experience in traditional soap making using organic oils for health and wellbeing. As an ardent warrior for the Earth Victoria truly lives her message of saving the planet, one face at a time.
The range has now expanded to include a variety of products, gifts and accessories including Pit Stop – our healthy. Aluminium free deodorant. It’s perfect for men and women.
These days, Valor’s shaving and beard products are conveniently available in a growing range of speciality retail stores and barber shops here in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore, as well as online worldwide.
Valor is an ethical brand. We use high quality ingredients and are FREE FROM Palm Oil (see “Whats the Fuss about Palm Oil”?). We also have NO Synthetic fragrances, NO parabens, NO sulphates and NO dodgy preservatives. All our products are safe for our waterways and septic systems.
Importantly, Valor is kind to skin. Unlike many shaving and beard ranges Valor is moisturising and hydrating. It helps to ease “beard itch” while taming and nourishing your beard and skin and it even helps to prevent in-growing hairs. Try it for yourself and join the Valor tribe!
