Preventing body odor can be an uphill battle. With many antiperspirants containing potentially harmful ingredients, greasy residue that sticks to clothes and skin or ineffective formulas that wear off at the first sign of sweat, finding the right product can be virtually impossible. Thankfully, Dermatologist Alicia Zalka, M.D has revamped the deodorant game with Surface Deep Anti-Odorant Pads. Surface Deep works differently than body odor eliminators of the past, using fruit-based glycolic acid to cleanse and remove odor caused by dead skin cells and surface oils. Unlike stick or roll-on products, this probiotic-packed formula does not deposit on skin, block pores, plug up sweat glands, or contain pungent fragrances.
Surface Deep ditches aluminum, sulfates, parabens, phthalates, alcohol, silicone, baking soda and PEG—often found in conventional deodorants—for lactobacillus, a probiotic derived from coconut fermentation. Lactobacillus cultivates the presence of “good” bacteria on the skin’s surface, balancing the skin’s microbiome and reducing inflammation. In an independent consumer perception test, 91% of subjects that used Surface Deep pads stayed odor free all day, and 100% did not experience sensitivity. Surface Deep is not gentle on just skin: this Leaping Bunny Certified brand is proud to be cruelty-free and environmentally sustainable. These biodegradable pads are packaged in a 100% recyclable box with a water-based coating and printed with soy ink, eliminating wasteful plastic tubes and bulky packaging.
