This one is Woohoo’s bicarb soda and essential oil free formulation
An all-natural deodorant paste that can be an option for those with sensitive skin and noses
It helps to destroy the bacteria that causes body odour while absorbing moisture without blocking sweat glands.

P.S. If you’re used to using an antiperspirant, please remember that this isn’t one! This deodorant works by neutralising odour and keeps you dryer by absorbing moisture, but it DOESN’T block your pores with aluminium to stop you from sweating. It can take a couple of weeks for your body to adjust to this type of deodorant but it’s worth the wait!
Mellow is a very different Woohoo – a bicarb soda free, fragrance free, essential oil free, skin LOVING Woohoo All Natural Deodorant Paste.
Why? Because bicarb soda is a fantabulous natural deodoriser BUT it can upset some people. Even though the guys at Woohoo carefully adjusted the pH of their other Woohoo deodorants to minimise the chance of irritation, there are some incredibly sensitive souls who can’t even tolerate the tiniest amount.
So the Woohoo team set themselves the challenge to create a deodorant that could bust odour even BETTER than Woohoo Urban and Woohoo Wild, but without bicarb.
Woohoo Mellow has the smoothest of textures, applies like an absolute dream, and busts body odour like you wouldn’t believe. Even without essential oils.
Mellow’s superstar ingredients are absolute crackers!
Magnesium Hydroxide (also goes by “milk of magnesia”) – You guessed it – the same stuff used to stop indigestion and heartburn. Who would have thought it also works an absolute treat at neutralising BO.
Activated Charcoal – What can’t it do these days? Well you can add another string to its bow because it not only works at keeping you dry it also adsorbs odour. Double thumbs up.
Olive Leaf Extract – One of nature’s most powerful antibacterial, antifungal and antioxidant plants. Smelly, sweat-munching bacteria are no match for this gift from mother nature. It boosts Mellow’s BO preventing power so a masking fragrance is not required.
These superstars are join the much loved old gang of Kaolin clay, zinc and Tapioca starch to make Woohoo Mellow a worthy addition the the Woohoo family.
Where oh where are the essential oils?
NOWHERE 🙂 In most natural deodorants essential oils play a pretty big role in helping stop body odour but we managed to create this incredibly effective deodorant without them.
The team at Woohoo had a few good reasons not to use them in Woohoo Mellow.
- Essential oils, even though they’re natural, can irritate sensitive skinned folk. And we wanted Mellow to be the deodorant that EVERYONE can use.
- Ladies lucky enough to be pregnant often like to stay away from essential oils to avoid any possible side effects on their pregnancy (even though the likelihood is very small – better safe than sorry!).
- Breastfeeding mamas usually like to avoid essential oils to make sure bub doesn’t get upset by weird smells.
- Some people just don’t like smelly things. And that’s A-O-K with us 🙂
Mellow has a very gentle coconut oil aroma that disappears as soon as it’s rubbed into your skin. No lingering scent. You just smell like you. In a good way!
Did you know #1 – Sweating is actually good for you?
We love sweating. All the best things in life make you sweaty, and it’s soooo good for you in so many ways.
But being smelly sucks. So most of us head into the supermarket and get ourselves an antiperspirant. After all, it’s cheap and stops us smelling. Winner, right?
D’oh – I’m afraid not 🙁
Did you know #2 – Antiperspirants are NOT good for you?
If you’re using an antiperspirant deodorant then you could be making yourself unhealthy without even realising.
Antiperspirants stop you from healthy sweating by blocking your pores. Then most (like an unwanted party guest) leave aluminium salts in your beautiful bod. Boo.
Aluminium is not normally found in your body so a big red flag is raised when researchers find it in our body tissue. It shows that our body absorbs aluminium, and your antiperspirant could be a cause of this.
Aluminium is a neurotoxin and it has links to increasing the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. It has also been found to disrupt your endocrine system by mimicking the hormone estrogen. Anything that can do this raises alarm bells in the breast cancer world.
It’s also the culprit for staining your clothes yellow!
So as you can see, it’s important to embrace the sweat and ditch antiperspirants.
Here’s what some Woohoo fans have had to say…
“No irritation, no body odour smell, happy arm pits”
“I apply in the morning after a shower & throughout the day I didn’t experience any BO. I’m quite used to natural deodorants that allow you to perspire and this stuff does its smell-blasting job – very well. With other similar deodorants I have experienced an oily mess when sweating but Happy Skin Care deo paste stays put. Thumbs up!”
“I really appreciated the lack of irritation. With the XXXXXXX one it was good for a while (like a few months) and then began to cause darkness/redness – possibly as moving into cooler months and less lubrication? So far so good with yours. For me, much better stopping BO than XXXXXXX . I’ve recently also gotten XXXXXXX and yours is more effective than that too.”
“It is easy to use, not messy, but most of all it works well, only a small amount required then it’s set and forget for the rest of the day because it does its job so well. I love it, would recommend it, and definitely buy it again. It took a little while to get used to the new application, but it’s good and long lasting, economical. No white marks on my clothes.”
“Kept me smelling fresh all day sometimes after a work out required an extra application but worked amazingly. Minimal wetness but it is winter too but I am quiet active”
“I haven’t experienced any irritation or burning with this deo, even when applied directly after shaving – whereas other brands have been a bit rough in texture, even grainy, and can leave my pits feeling raw & inflamed from the bicarb soda & lack of the right nourishing ingredients/ratio”
“I found it to work wonders! I work out at the gym frequently and even then, no bad odor whats so ever. It feels natural on, covers and neutralizers body odor and balances perspiration smells, with the slightest of fragrance emitting, it really does workwell and gives peace of mind. I found this deodorant highly effective, in that regard especially.”
