WHAT IS COMPLETELY NATURAL?
Advances in natural and plant-based chemistry have made it possible to create highly effective personal care products without the use of potentially harmful chemicals. Corpus product formulations are vegan, and cruelty-free, including parabens, aluminum, talc, baking soda, propylene glycol and synthetic fragrance. All of the ingredients are either plant or mineral derived.
You may be asking what does Natural really mean? It’s a great question but met with varying definitions causing great skepticism, and abuse. Unfortunately the FDA does not regulate the term “natural”, and this leaves consumers questioning how a company defines the term.
At corpus we see it like this; if a product is derived from a natural source and has been minimally processed, we call it completely-naturally-derived. Now just about anything that goes into a product has gone through some form of processing to be extracted from its natural source, thus the use of the term “derived”. We have gone to great lengths to make sure that each and every ingredient used in our formulations passes the Corpus standard of what we define as natural.
Now keep in mind that just because an ingredient might sound like a synthetic chemical, ie. Sorbitan Oleate Decylglucoside Crosspolymer, but it’s actually a PEG-free, nonionic fragrance stabilizer made from 100% bio-based raw materials. Doing your own quick Internet search of ingredients goes a long way in product education.
IS CORPUS ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY?
Absolutely, and we’re committed to using energy from renewable sources. Corpus uses mainly Solar Power to create our formula, and our stick and box are manufactured using Hydro-Electric energy. Because we don’t want to sacrifice quality and performance, Corpus uses a plastic applicator. Our philosophy is to evolve towards green solutions whenever possible, and as sustainable alternatives become available we plan to adopt them.
WHAT MAKES A “NATURAL FRAGRANCE” NATURAL?
Natural fragrances are essential oils and isolates derived from flowers, fruits, sap, seeds or skin of the plant, as well as the bark, leaves, roots, resins or wood of certain trees and never as a result of synthetic chemistry.
IS CORPUS ALUMINUM-FREE?
Yes. Corpus is a natural deodorant, and all deodorants are aluminum-free. Antiperspirants, on the other hand, use pore-clogging aluminum to artificially reduce sweating. But sweating is natural and is one of the ways your body cools and detoxifies itself. Corpus works with your body’s natural chemistry rather than against it.
DO YOU USE BAKING SODA?
No. We formulated an effective natural deodorant without Baking Soda. We use tapioca starch and diatomaceous earth as effective alternatives for this commonly used ingredient. Although Baking Soda is considered a natural ingredient, it is known to cause irritation and has the drawback of a gritty and rough texture.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT SWITCHING TO NATURAL DEODORANT?
When you stop using personal care products containing synthetic, artificial ingredients, it’s sometimes common for your body to go through a brief period of readjustment. This is completely normal and necessary for your body to expel foreign toxins. Some people notice increased wetness and odor during the transition period, but most experience little to no odor, wetness, or irritation. In the unlikely event you experience prolonged sensitivity or irritation, reach out to the Corpus team.
HOW DO I APPLY CORPUS TO MY BODY?
You can apply Corpus just like a conventional deodorant. Use as little or as much as feels right.
TIP: To increase product effectiveness, always apply to dry skin. Wet skin will dilute the product and decease the effectiveness.
WHERE SHOULD I STORE CORPUS?
Keep Corpus in a cool area away from excess heat.
