Application Tips

Our top tips for getting the most out of your Cacao Pow Deo Bar

  • The Cacao Pow Deo Bar is a solid that melts at body temperature. Cacao Butter melts at 34-38 degrees. Normal body temperature is between 36-37 degrees.
  • The best time to apply is after a hot bath or shower, to clean, dry skin.
  • We recommend turning the end of the bar into a light fluffy paste in the palm of your hand - around 20 rotations will achieve this. Once the bar starts to flow you can apply directly from the bar to the armpit.
  • Alternatively you can hold the bar against the skin of the armpit and count to ten. This is roughly how long it takes for the bar to start flowing. You always want the product to glide on effortlessly.
  • For hair free armpits smooth the product completely into the skin as you would any moisturiser, ensuring that it hasn’t gathered in the folds of the skin. A visible layer on the skin is not required.
  • See how many days you can go without re-applying. Ultimately we recommend applying every other day. The product continues working even after showering. 
  • If you have sensitive armpits don’t use on the same day you shave. 
  • Consider applying the product before bed and washing it off in the morning. It will carry on working during the day and there are many benefits to this. 
  • If you feel sore after applying, wash it straight off. If you have washed it straight off it will still continue working and will work for several hours. 
  • If you have experienced a reaction to the product it is important that you discontinue use.
