“Detox-A-Pit was created as a detox product for people who have been using conventional deodorants with sweat gland blocking heavy metals and toxins and also for those who want to get rid of toxins as a result of bad food and lifestyle choices. It is designed to be used for 10 minutes a day for 7 days with instructions to use once a week ongoing for maintenance.
With natural detoxifying ingredients such as activated charcoal, bentonite clay and diatomaceaous earth, this is a dark grey paste and so must be used before a shower otherwise it would be very messy. It does smell strongly of apple cider vinegar, though if you’re used to that smell, it’s not unpleasant.
Having used natural deodorants for years and having a clean, alcohol free diet myself (still breastfeeding), I must admit I didn’t notice a huge difference at the end of the week as to how long I could go without needing deodorant, however my armpits did feel fresher.
I would highly recommend this product if you are swapping over to natural deodorants from conventional ones or if you are feeling like your body needs a detox and you aren’t finding that natural deodorants are working effectively enough for you.”
“Switching to natural deodorant? Detoxing is great thing to do first or along the way. This mask goes on easily and washes off well. No staining at all. I found it works well to decrease smell and irritation. There is a strong vinegar smell and test first in case you are irritated. An interesting idea. Will detox again.

“This is such a cool little product and a wonderful starter for anyone new to the natural deodorant revolution! I love that it draws out toxins from our bodies through the area in which we are meant to sweat it all out (something which unnatural deodorants prevents). I tried it for the seven-day period and found it really easy to incorporate the application into my evening routine (unfortunately as a mum to two little ones, spending 10 minutes applying a mask to anywhere on my body every morning is impossible and draws a lot of unwanted attention). It’s easy to apply and wash off, and my armpit feels lovely and soft and clean afterwards. I love the ingredients list – it feels really good to use this product! Love the recycled glass packaging too.”
“This is an innovative product; I have often wondered if a clay mask could be used on the arm pits to help draw out toxins. I think this product is most suitable for people making the transition to a natural deodorant & after nights when you have eaten onions, garlic, pork & other food that is known to increase body odours. I tried this on a day after exercising, I found that it did reduce odour, by cleansing the armpits with a wipe & then applying the product before showering.”
“This product is awesome and really works. However, being a mum of 3 (18 months the youngest) Putting 10mins aside before a shower each day can be difficult.”
