Can I use your facial serum as my daily moisturizer?
Yes, the Revitalizing Facial Serum is moisturizing and nourishing for your skin. It absorbs quickly and does not clog your pores.
Do I need to sleep in the Hydrating Overnight Mask to experience it benefits?
No, this mask can also be used like a traditional mask letting it set for 5 - 20 minutes.
Why is your serum oil based and not cream based?
Cream based products contain oil and water and thus need to be emulsified. Often this emulsification is caused by heat, which can cause the oils in the formulation to oxidize. Oxidized oils are not the best for your skin and that is why we have an oil based serum that moisturizes and nourishes the skin. Another wonderful thing about our Revitalizing Facial Serum is that it absorbs quickly and doesn't contain heavier waxes and emulsifiers that can sit on top of the skin and clog pores.
Why is phenoxyethanol in your masks?
Phenoxyethanol is found naturally in green tea and chicory. The ingredient used commercially is chemically identical to the natural form but produced synthetically. Phenoxyethanol is used as a preservative that fights bacteria. Products that contain natural ingredients and are water based, such as our masks, makes a great breeding ground for bacteria. Therefore, to protect our customers from bacterial contamination and to make the product very stable we use this as our preservative for our masks. Moreover, phenoxyethanol is Whole Foods Premium Body Care Approved, which is a high standard that Whole Foods developed based on using the most current safety and efficacy data available.
Does the deodorant work?
Z Natural Life Extra Strength Deodorant is made from high quality ingredients. It utilizes the latest technological advancements to deliver odor neutralization of undesirable body odors for all day protection.
Why do we have odor from our armpits?
The bacteria in our armpits breaks down lipids and amino acids found in our sweat into substances that have a distinct odor. The odor from person to person varies because of each person’s unique microbiome.
Is there sometimes a transition period when switching from an antiperspirant to a natural deodorant?
Yes, there is sometimes a transition period for someone using an antiperspirant and switching to a natural deodorant. Just as in the body, when the “good” bacteria are killed off, the “bad” bacteria can take over. Most antiperspirants use aluminum compounds, which can impact the balance of “good” and “bad” bacteria. Whereby, the “bad” bacteria produce more pungent odors. The transition period can be the time it takes your body to restore its microbiome balance.
Why does the scent of the deodorant not last all day? Does that mean it is not working?
Z Natural Life uses high quality essential oils to derive our scents. Unfortunately, essential oils do not have the staying power that synthetic fragrances have. In our opinion using essential oils in our products is cleaner and makes it safer to use versus using the chemicals that make up synthetic fragrances. Just because the initial scent wore off, does not mean the deodorant is not working. The question really is…Did the deodorant keep you from having body odor? If it did, then you have a winning formula for your body chemistry!
Is the deodorant an antiperspirant?
Antiperspirants contain aluminum compounds, which help block the pores to prevent sweating. Z Natural Life Extra Strength Deodorant is free of aluminum compounds and is not considered an antiperspirant.
Does the deodorant contain aluminum?
No, it protects against odor without using aluminum and keeps the skin feeling clean and dry.
Does the deodorant leave a white residue or a sticky feeling?
No, the opaque gel absorbs quickly with no white residue or sticky feeling.
Why a new extra strength deodorant formulation?
We initially introduced a 4-in-1 deodorant, which was a great product, but did not quite hit our lofty goal of having unprecedented efficacy. As a result, we conducted an in-depth search for natural and effective ingredients, talked with companies throughout Europe and the USA, and reviewed their studies and offerings. In the end, we created a revolutionary formula with great technology that meets our expectations.
Why is the deodorant a cream and not a stick?
The cream formula gives us ultimate flexibility to use ingredients that would not work well in a stick manufacturing process. Additionally, the cream absorbs quickly and leaves no residue, which we see as a great advantage.
How do I apply your deodorant?
It’s easy with no mess. Just squeeze out the amount needed. Then, using the applicator tip, cover the underarm area evenly.
Is your deodorant effective for men?
Z Natural Life Extra Strength Deodorant is for everyone. It is strong enough for both men and women who need extra protection.
What about your deodorant for children and teens?
Absolutely. Z Natural Life Extra Strength Deodorant is safe and effective for kids and teens as well.
Why doesn’t your deodorant have powder in it?
When a powder is included in a deodorant it becomes saturated by the liquid and oil already in the formulation. We feel that separating the two is a much better way to provide odor and wetness protection.
My underarms are extra wet what can I do?
On those days when life happens and you find yourself extra sweaty use our powder to help absorb the moisture. It is also great to use in addition to our deodorant.
Do you have additional information about the ingredients in your products?
