How do you define Clean Beauty?
Clean Beauty means products packed with simple yet powerful botanicals, minerals and vitamins that nourish your skin. It means products filled with high quality ingredients that are ethically sourced and can provide results without sacrificing the environment.
What are the most powerful ingredients in MAKA’s BiodomePro?
Rustic MAKA’s BiodomePro Prebiotic formula focuses on cultivating the good underarm bacteria. Our proprietary blend of baobab and chicory root create a nourishing environment in order to battle the body odor, where good bacterial can thrive without the interruption of the skin’s acid mantle. Each of Rustic MAKA's natural deodorant sticks is formulated with butters and oils, fortifying minerals, nutrient-rich botanical extracts that nourish and balance the underarm skin. They are scented with essential oils and plant-based isolates, which makes them synthetic fragrance-free. These ingredients are transformed into effective and good-for-the-body products that actually work.
What knowledge led you to this formula?
Just like your gut, your skin microbiome can become imbalanced, leading to an array of skin conditions which typical products do nothing more than cover up. Your underarms can become susceptible to that same imbalance, if not properly cared for. Your skin’s microbiome is the living ecosystem of microbes residing on your skin (the epidermis) responsible for keeping your skin healthy and balanced. There are good, bad, and neutral living microbes on your skin, each affecting every single person differently. The microbes on your skin (also known as skin flora, or bacteria) are determined by both the surface of your skin and the bacteria present. Depending on which microorganisms are there, you may experience various skin conditions or disorders. However, the better you take care of your skin by creating a thriving microbiome, the healthier your skin will be.
How should this product be used?
Less is more. Therefore 1-3 swipes per underarm is all you need for all-day freshness. It is best to apply right after showering on clean, dry skin and allowing the deodorant to fully absorb. You can also massage your underarms for faster absorption and to stimulate your lymph nodes.
Try using it on your feet and any other part that gets sweaty for extra freshness and odour protection.
