What does Ozone smell like?
Ozone is what you smell when lightning strikes or an arc is created from an electrical outlet. You will also smell it at the ocean with waves crashing and when it rains, but very subtle. It is a subjective scent, some people think of it as a clean, fresh scent and others just don’t like it. Our unscented deodorant smells strongly of ozone, therefore we suggest anyone unfamiliar with the unique smell of ozone to try one of our great scented deodorants!
What are your most popular scents?
Our three most popular scents, they are all about even in popularity, include Lavender essential oil, Eucalyptus + Mint fragrance and Creamy Coconut fragrance. Those three scents also mask the unique scent of ozone very effectively. Co-founders Todd and Reid’s favorites are Lemongrass and Lavender, respectively.
Are you carried in any stores?
Yes! We are currently carried in about 40 stores in the U.S., mostly on the East Coast, but also in Arizona and California as well as in downtown Budapest, Hungary! A list of the stores that carry all natural Ozone Layer Deodorant can be seen at our store locations page.
Do you ship outside of the U.S.?
Yes we do! Shipments all over the world are now automated through the website.
How do I use Ozone Layer Deodorant?
Like any other deodorant product. There are no tricks, except to LIGHTLY APPLY to the underarm, achieving full coverage and go about your day. In our experience it even works to deodorize after a physical activity because it eliminates bacteria naturally through oxidation. Also, ozone is powerful enough that you don’t need to apply as much as other deodorants, we recommend that you apply one or two “strokes” before running around, but don’t hesitate to apply it after playing some sweaty badminton because it will still eliminate any odor on your skin without you having to shower off. Keep in mind though, your shirt might be stinky, but it can also be applied to clothing to eliminate odor!
I smell Ozone Layer Deodorant on myself all day and into the evening, is that normal?
NO, stop putting so much on! 🙂 All natural Ozone Layer Deodorant is powerful stuff and very little is necessary for all day odor protection. Most people are simply used to applying a lot of deodorant because that used to be the only way to keep odor at bay with propylene glycol chemical based deodorants, but Ozone Layer Deodorant is different. When a customer of ours is bothered by the smell of the deodorant it is typically because they are applying too much. The deodorant is effective with a small amount and you need to apply very little of it for all day odor protection. If you smell the deodorant on yourself 5-10 minutes after application then you probably applied too much.
If I forget to put it on, can I apply it after I’m sweaty and smelly from playing Spikeball?
Most definitely! We do it all the time. (The point here is, that even after working out or having “body odor,” you can apply our deodorant to rid yourself of odor-causing bacteria!)
How does Ozone Layer Deodorant work?
We have a three step process that infuses oxygen directly into our 2 simple ingredients. The result is a product that is completely safe and effective, while not containing any of the toxic ingredients common to many cosmetic products on the marketplace today, like aluminum and propylene glycol. It works by creating a time-releasing oxygen layer of protection to the underarm which destroys the anaerobic bacteria that are responsible for body odor. For more information, check out How Ozone Deodorant Works.
Does it contain any fragrances?
Three of them do, but they are each Gluten Free, Sulfate Free, Phthalate Free, Paraben Free, Free of Artificial Colors and skin safe. Creamy Coconut, Jasmine and Eucalyptus + Mint are fragrances we use from http://naturalessentialsbeauty.com/faq. Lavender, Lemongrass and Tea Tree are the essential oils we use the other respective varieties. What’s your favorite fragrance? Really, tell us what your favorite fragrance is on our Contact Us page. If you are nice to us we might make a deodorant with the fragrance of your choice!
What plastics do you use to package your deodorant products?
All of our deodorant containers are BPA free plastics that are 100% recyclable polypropylene.
What type of shipping materials do you use?
We are proud to use only 100% Made from Recycled material shipping and packaging materials.
Is it Certified Organic?
Ozone Layer Deodorant is not actually organic any more. Shea butter is much more predictable and safe for the skin after being refined. We may not be certified organic, but we choose to be completely transparent about all of the our ingredients, which are listed in detail on our How It Works page.
Is it Cruelty Free?
It most certainly is! We love animals and think that animals should only ever be used for the purpose of cuddling, NEVER FOR TESTING! We refined our deodorant formula and technology by testing it on ourselves! Everything appears to be fine with us so far. 😉
The deodorant appears oily when applied… will it absorb?
All natural Ozone Layer Deodorant works in a unique way that you’ll first see and feel with the beeswax and shea butter on your skin, but you’ll notice that they absorb fully within minutes, moisturizing your skin and leaving a silky non-greasy feel.
Does it contain any aluminum?
NO! There is absolutely no aluminum in Ozone Layer Deodorant. Many companies try to hide the aluminum in their deodorant and anti-antiperspirants by calling it “aluminum salts” or “aluminum chloro-hydrate.” Don’t forget to look behind the curtain!
