I stopped using deodorant for the sole reason that it irritates my skin and I could never find anything that will help me with my skin condition (hidradenitis suppurativa). Then I came across this product. Mama au products saved my life. I’m planning to buy more so I could stock up. Since the shipping takes over 2 weeks. But it’s worth the wait!
With covid and being from canada it took just about a month to get here but that was excepted, I used the black African soap today and felt so clean and fresh, unlike other soaps that leave a waxy type feeling there was none of that at all. I also used the turmeric and manuka honey in the citrus smell and even though it came melted (pretty sure due to being so far away) I threw it in the fridge and it was close to good as new. The smell is amazing and feels very natural! A little goes along way and of course I applied it as normal deodorant and was way to much. Absolutely love this stuff so far and excited to finally have and use it ❤
I love this deodorant. It helps to mask the unpleasant smell. It doesn’t irritate any flare ups.
I started out looking for an hs specific deodorant to help with my condition. I thought this would be a great one to try. Unfortunately, when it came (it took them almost an entire business week to even ship it) I was severely disappointed. It was leaking sticky goo (the Manuka honey is not blended with the rest of the product at all!) everywhere inside the package. I popped it into the freezer to firm up and tried it the next day. STILL a leaky mess, from the moment I opened the container I knew that it was not off to a good start. I applied it; just one press into my skin and there was a disgusting, cakey mound of product on my underarm. It proceeded to smush around over my entire underarm throughout the day and never dried, firmed up, sunk into my skin. Not only that, but I got maybe one solid hour of scent protection before the natural odor started seeping through. I was inside and hardly active at all during that time. Not to mention, the next day I had two new flares when I had not flared in months previous to using this product.
I emailed customer support, only a handful of days after receiving the item, telling them about the problems I was having with the formulation and rudely got told that basically I could pick another sham product from their website or to just accept the loss. Not very understanding or compassionate toward their customers whatsoever. Especially for a small business, and one with such a specific business model, this came off as poor practice to me, and certainly does not warrant another purchase.
The ingredients sure do SOUND like they would be great for hs skin, BUT this product is extremely unstable, messy, and overall ineffective.
I've been using the tumernic DO about two weeks now. it has clear my skin under my arms smooth and healthy looking. The product is oily and stands my clothes but I'll take it! I also love the fact that a lil goes a long way because if the thin oily texture you only need apply a lil and rub is into you skin. works all day perfect . also i have been using it on other body part, hubby says your so soft and smooth. thank you so much for this product. I have never gotten a complement from him like this.
