At Triumph & Disaster, we say that it’s good to sweat.

Sweat is one of the signs of a normal, healthy functioning system. Our ethos is to work with the body’s natural flow by working with it to limit excess moisture and control the aromas created through the excretion of sweat. It’s this control of aroma that we are most interested in. With our deodorant ‘Spice’ our goal is to limit body odour by impairing the bacteria that produce it, dousing them with hypnotic, fragrant notes to create an intoxicating mix of exotic moolah.

Our fragrance is a bespoke heady mix of Frankincense, Bay Leaf and Clove that collide to calm perspiration and neutralise odour. Spice - Deodorant’s ingredients are natural and organic. Its fragrance is exotic but light, evoking a sense of a wild night under the moon that we might have once had when nobody was looking. New Zealand Manuka, Aloe Vera and Kawakawa combine with organic Lavender and the natural benefits of Sodium Bicarbonate to calm perspiration and neutralise our body’s odour.  So you can go ahead and Dance.

 

When sweat evaporates from the surface of your skin, it removes excess heat and cools you. Essential if you're in a desert. Unfortunately, when we are nervous or afraid, this also produces an increase in epinephrine secretion in our sweat glands, the palms and armpits to make sweat. Hence that 'cold' sweat we feel when asking out a hot date.
There are two types of sweat gland: eccrine and apocrine. When the eccrine sweat gland is stimulated, our cells secrete a fluid similar to plasma. It is mostly water with high concentrations of sodium and chloride and a low concentration of potassium. The apocrine sweat glands produce the same, however, they also include proteins and fatty acids, which make it thicker and give it an opaque colour. It's this type of sweat that bacteria love. Unchecked, they metabolise the proteins and fatty acids and produce an unpleasant odour. But that's where our Deodorant slides in to fight the bacteria.

1/ Manuka, Aloe Vera and Kawakawa combine with organic Lavender and the natural benefits of Sodium Bicarbonate to calm perspiration and neutralise our body’s odour.

2/ Calms sweat and attacks odour, without halting the body’s natural excretion or heating system. We do this by reducing the bacteria on our skin, but only the ones that create odour.

3/ Baking soda is alkaline, meaning it counteracts the bacteria-loving acids in sweat and acts as a natural balancing agent for armpit odour.

KEY INGREDIENTS

 

Manuka Oil - Probably New Zealand's most widely used native plant. Everything from tonics and teas to lip balms and Honey are infused with Manuka's goodness and sold on our shelves. In our Deodorant, we use it for its calming and neutralising benefits to help bring odour under control.
Kawakawa Extract -  In Te Reo Māori (New Zealand’s indigenous language) refers to the bitter taste of the leaves, kawa meaning bitter. Also referred to as NZ Pepper Tree, Kawakawa was one of the most important plants in Rongoā ( traditional Māori medicine), used externally for cuts, wounds and bruises and applied as a treatment for toothache, nettle stings and eczema due to its natural anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. We use it for much the same properties, to treat scalp and calm heads.
Aloe Vera - Most of us are well aware of the benefits and properties of this awesome plant. Ask anyone with sunburn what they are reaching for and the answer will be Aloe Vera. We use Aloe Vera for its all-around properties to help us inhibit bacterial and fungal activity. The calming & cooling effect of Aloe Vera adds to the overall sensation of our deodorant.
Baking Soda / Sodium Bicarbonate - Baking Soda is alkaline, meaning it counteracts the bacteria-loving acids in sweat and acts as a natural balancing agent for armpit odour. Our formula has been developed to be low pH, making it gentle on the skin, but strong enough to mask the effect of bacteria and the odour they create. 
Lavender Extract - We use a bespoke infusion of organic lavender as the vehicle to get all the other fragrance ingredients to the show. Lavender is your friendly train conductor doing all the hard yards to make sure the team is there on time and ready to play.

Kawakawa in Te Reo Māori refers to the bitter taste of the leaves, from kawa meaning bitter. Kawakawa or NZ Pepper Tree was one of the most important plants in Rongoa (medicine), Maori used it externally for cuts, wounds and bruises and also applied it as a treatment for toothache, nettle stings and eczema. All of which leads us to believe that it makes for a great ingredient in a cleansing, calming body wash.

Alright

Only good for a few hours and will need re-application. Great scent though.

Awesome natural non pore blocking deodorant

Decided to go down this route as I hated the feeling of the anti perspirant on my armpits. Also felt like it was doing something that my body didn't agree with so I found this. Great scent and does the job without leaving that waxy residue behind. Just apply every morning and I'm good to go.

One of those products you get addicted to

It started as with some T&D products, with an overwhelming aroma that blew me away at first (very strong and spicy). Then I started using it and found it very effective and pleasant to smell .... so much so that sometimes during the day I open it jsut to smell it ...I also really like the format, elegant and compact, easy to use

Great scent, gentle on sensitive skin

The packaging is unsurprisingly good looking from T&D - a substantial, weighty glass container with roller ball applicator. The first hit of a distinctly clove-heavy scent is powerful but fades to be quite subtle. Best of all, for me personally, is that the ingredients work well for my sensitive skin, while other deodorants can irritate.
