IMMI can IRRITATE sensitive skin since it is made with baking soda and your alkalinity can cause reaction on the skin of the armpits. The rest of the ingredients to counteract this effect (coconut oil, Shea butter, beeswax, lavender oil and cornstarch) However, as underarm is a bit dark and wet area this product may not be suitable for all. As it happens with the rest of the deodorant and antitraspirantes in the market.
Does IMMI have another versions ?
Immi is a cream and it is applied with your fingers. People are not familiar to use hands to apply deodorant and there is some resistance to using IMMI for this reason; as if the underarms are a dirty or restricted area. IMMI is made with coconut oil, which varies in consistency depending on the temperature to which it is exposed. When mixed with the mineral powder of its ingredients it can solidify easily to lower temperature making difficult its application either in warm climates can be softer. Since, it does not contain chemical stabilizers, it is not easy to put it into a container of bar for example or magic ball, because as mentioned its texture can change depending on the climate and this would make it more difficult to apply. For this reason can be no more than this version in cream.

Pros and cons of using a natural deodorant
Everything in this life has pros and cons, IMMI is no exception, we would like to say that IMMI is a perfect deodorant for all, but that would be a lie, and one of the values of VERDE A LA MEXICANA, is honesty, so today we are going to share the pros and cons of using a natural deodorant like IMMI.
We have sold more than 10,000 pieces of IMMI deodorant, the majority of our customers are reported very happy, but there are a few for whom it has not been good, this is because IMMI is made with oils (coconut, shea butter, beeswax and lavender) which are natural and delicious, but can cause certain problems in skin and clothing. On the other hand, the bicarbonate as necessary ingredient can irritate sensitive skin.
We are going to analyze together with calm pros and cons of using IMMI daily:
CONS OF USING A NATURAL DEODORANT
1. A natural deodorant can stain certain fabrics such as silk or red in color when mixing formula of deodorant and sweat, and then makes contact with the clothing.
Our recommendation is to use IMMI when you use natural fibers for clothing, sports, school uniform, work, etc, if you are going to dress with silk garments, dry cleaning, red or very elegant, it is better to use other options.
2. A natural deodorant may irritate sensitive skin and produce a small rash, especially if you’ve just epilated with wax or shave the armpits area.
Our recommendation is to try that skin will respond to the formula leaving a few days of rest, applying a type Neosporin ointment, bactorban or vitasilina. And then to use again, until the skin of the armpit area is adjusting the ph to the bicarbonate. In the event of a severe irritation, discontinue its use. The skin of the armpit is very delicate and this is a reaction that can be also caused by the commercial products.
3. You can cap off a sweat gland.This is something very common in the use of antiperspirants with aluminum and in the case of IMMI, the mixing of the oils out of your formula can clog a pore and if you do not “popping” to time you might develop an infection.
Our recommendation is that at the first sign of clogged pore, apply a warm compress with a salt-water repeatedly and then use Neosporin, Vitasilina or Bactroban. In three days the pore will be free of the fat in the oils of the formula of IMMI.
4. You can produce a slight dark spot on the armpit. This is due to a reaction of contact dermatitis. Sweating in combination with any deodorant or antiperspirant that irritates the area, (IMMI included) can stimulate melanocytes producing local and dark spots.
Our recommendation is to suspend the use of IMMI and apply for a few days and in very small amount a thin layer of ointment containing steroids of power I-II as the Hydrocortisone is suitable for contact dermatitis. If the skin is hydrated before applying the ointment, you can increase up to 10 times its effect. Suspend once the armpit area gets lighter.
