What’s inside our Organic Deodorant Sticks ?

What’s inside our Organic Deodorant Sticks? How it works? Are all the ingredients safe and useful?

Some questions we’ve recently got and for which we decide to write this post within the “What’s inside?” blog section 😉

Ingredients details

All the 3 deodorants we propose have the same composition with the following ingredients:

Sodium Bicarbonate or Baking soda

A must have in all the houses. Baking soda catches bad odors without avoid your body to sweat (necessary to eliminate bad toxins).

Organic Arrow root

Arrow root absorbs moisture and leave your skin soft.

Organic Coconut oil

Coconut oil is a must have too, but here it’s for its anti-bacterial properties.

Organic Unrefined Shea Butter

Our Shea butter is organic and unrefined, wonderful ingredient that helps moistures after shaving 

Cera Bellina

Cera Bellina is derivative from Beeswax. It helps to spread the product on underarms.

Organic Cocoa Butter

Cocoa Butter is great to get product in solid forms. Plus here, it also moistures the underarms.

Glyceryl Stearate Citrate

Anionic, natural and palm-free emulsifier based on rapeseed (canola) oil.

Organic Essential oils

For 2 of our 3 solid deodorants, we add drops of essential oils. Essential oils offer smells and the ones we’ve selected have an action of catching bad odors. Here what we propose for each deodorant:

  • Woodsy Deodorant : Organic Essential oils of Cedarwood and Vetiver.
  • Flowery Deodorant: Organic Essential oils of Palmarosa and Sclary sage.
  • Neutral Deodorant: no essential oils as this deodorant has been formulated for pregnant/breastfeeding women, people allergic to limonene (essential oils component) and people who prefers neutral odors 😉

And that’s it!

Is there a difference between Deodorant and Anti-perspirant?

Yes there is! The first one will let your body sweaty and elimate the bad toxins.

While the second will block the sweat and so the bad toxins inside your body.

Deodorant catches only bad odors (which is in fact the main issue) but will not stop your body doing its job.

Anti-perspirant are really dangerous for your health and we advice you to avoid them as much as possible.

A word about the packaging

All our deodorant come in biodegradable/compostable kraft paper tube printed with soy ink.

For hygienic reason and because we sell online, we do not propose product packaging-free.

What’s not inside?

We all know that the main deodorants and anti perspirant products sold on the market contain controversial ingredients, some of them have been highlighted as responsible for the increase of breast cancer…

In our solid deodorants, you will not find them:

  • Aluminum: forbidden in our food, we find it in anti perspirant deodorants, entering our body to stop sweat and control the bad toxins, but also having damages in our health
  • Parabens
  • Alcohol
  • Mineral oil

Plus, market deodorants and anti perspirants are sold in non recyclable packaging. Spray are even dangerous as they can burst into flames!


Make the switch and share your thoughts 😉

Our Ethics

Biodegradable and Natural

Thanks to their natural ingredients, our handmade products are 100% Biodegradable. That means they don’t pollute our Soil or our Oceans for the next generation. You can use them in the rivers during your retreats 😉

We believe in the power of the Nature and what it gave us. Each product has been precisely formulated with natural ingredients. We try our best to provide you organic ingredients as much as possible: 60% of the ingredients we use are Certified Organic and this rate is the minimum you can find in our products.

We do not have yet the Organic certification but we hope to get it soon.

Carbon Footprint

At Frangipani, we make sure to provide you products the nearest to us to avoid carbon emission.
Globally, main of our manufactured products are from Asian Countries except if we don’t find products with high quality like the Safety Razors.

Fair Trade

We like to support farmers or small manufacturers who provide us the best quality of ingredients or products. Fair Trade is the recognition of their work.


We know, as being Muslims, how it might be hard to find halal personal care products (especially in Europe), even in the most famous soap you may find pork grease..

Moreover our conception of Halal is not only having products alcohol-free and pork-free, it means also being respectful with animals before, during and after using our products.

We do not have yet the Halal certification but we hope to get it soon.


Because we ship the products we need a minimum of packaging to make sure the products will not break during the shipping. All our handmade products are packed with unbleached recycled paper and for some of them printed with soy-ink. They are of course 100% biodegradable and compostable.
Most of our suppliers apply the same philosophy: toothbrush, dental silk floss… are in biodegradable packaging; and we encourage others to avoid plastic.

We try our best to reuse our packaging to send you your parcel so sometimes you may find used plastic packaging or bubble wrap, we received them from some of our suppliers and we prefer to give them a second life.
We encourage you to reuse our packaging for your personal deliveries or storage to give another life to them.

Palm Oil-free

Living in Malaysia opens literally our eyes regarding the dangers of palm oil.

We know palm oil has been used for years and it’s really great (and cheap!) in cosmetic. Anyway we disagree with the way this fruit is produced now, causing Haze and Deforestation.

So that’s why we worked hard to find alternatives for you and you know what? They are great and works better!


Plastic causes such bad pollution everywhere in the world, even in places where Human Being doesn’t live..Each time we buy something in disposable plastic, we fed plastic pollution in oceans and soil and that plastic is still alive somewhere…

At Frangipani, we know how it’s hard to find plastic-free personal care in Malaysia and we aim to propose our products as better alternatives for your health and the Planet.

Save Water

Solid cosmetic are most of them free from water or with the minimum for cold-process soaps or shampoo bar.

They are full of active ingredients, which means all the ingredients of the product have a real action.

This is also why they have longer life, moreover when you buy a solid shampoo, for example, you don’t spend a big part of the money in just water, like for liquid shampoo.

Actually, liquid cosmetics are mainly composed of water; you can see it in their composition (first ingredient described as “aqua” which means water) and so, they need preservatives.

Save water means also that because our products are natural, we don’t pollute water when we produce them and you can use them everywhere, even in the most beautiful Malaysian Island, with no risk to pollute.


Sustainability means providing personal care products having a longer life than their non-sustainable alternatives.

For handmade products, it means a life at least twice longer.

For manufactured products like razors, it means having a product for an entire life.

Naturally, sustainability makes savings, because you don’t need to buy regularly: make the calculation between buying one Safety razor and its blades instead of the plastic ones…


We try our best to provide you vegan products but sometimes we couldn’t find better alternatives: this is the case for our toothbrush or our dental floss.

We really think that plastic is hurting animals worst than using non-vegan alternatives. This is the choice we’ve made and we hope you’ll understand it.
