Superfood For Your Pits

Superfood For Your Pits

Powerhouse ingredient: the magic of spirulina

We all know that superfoods are good for us – they’re powerhouse ingredients that pack maximum nutrition into a small package. Well spirulina has long been a superfood, even before that word became trendy. A form of blue-green algae that’s packed with antioxidants, minerals, chlorophyll. All good for your gut… and for your skin. A surprising way to enjoy the skin care benefits of spirulina is in your deodorant. One of our favorite ways to integrate spirulina into our daily routine is through deodorant. There are a ton of benefits when using spirulina in your skin care, but here are just a few:

Maintains healthy skin
If you have sensitive skin like me, you NEED to start using deodorant with Spirulina. Spirulina is packed with vitamins and amino acids that fight free-radicals and replenish skin to keep it healthy and happy.

Anti-inflammatory properties
The delicate skin under known as your armpits is thin and prone to lots of friction, not to mention that it’s kind of a moist environment. All of that makes the area prone to irritation. With high levels of antioxidants, Spirulina is a powerful anti-inflammatory, to combat irritation and keep your skin calm and soothed.

Antibacterial properties
Spirulina is also rich in chlorophyll and has great antibacterial properties. This can help keep you stink-free. Your sweat only smells when it comes into contact with certain bacteria in your microbiome. When combined with other odor-fighting ingredients … and especially if it’s released as needed when your armpits sweat (like Type:A’s sweat-activated technology does!) … Spirulina is a powerhouse ingredient to give extra odor protection and keep your underarm skin in great shape. I use Type:A’s The Innovator with Spirulina on the hottest days because I know it will give me the extra protection I need to stay stink-free all day.

It’s time to invite spirulina into your daily natural deodorant routine. This list doesn’t come close to covering all of the benefits that spirulina can have on your health and wellness. But our favorite way to use Spirulina is to super-charge our deodorant. Type:A’s Charcoal + Spirulina formula has won 2 awards (and counting) for a reason, it really is a powerhouse protector that won’t let you down.
