Will GenEsscents products irritate the skin?

Likely not unless there is an allergy to any of the ingredients. If irritation occurs, discontinue use immediately and seek medical attention.

How should I store my products?

For optimal shelf life, keep your products out of extreme temperatures and humidity. Keep out of direct sunlight. Can store the anti-odor cream in the refrigerator to extend shelf life.

 

My anti-odor cream melted. Is it still safe and effective to use?

Yes. Placing the cream at or below 76 degrees will allow the cream to return to solid. Can be used in both solid and liquid form with the same effectiveness.

 

Why does the anti-odor cream melt?

The base of the formula is coconut oil which melts at or above 76 degrees Fahrenheit.

 

What is the difference between the plant-based and the vegetarian formulas of the anti-odor cream?

The vegetarian formula has added beeswax in the ingredients to increase the melting point. This is the recommended formula for shipping given uncontrollable temperature changes that may occur during shipping.

 

Why does the deodorant have zinc?

Zinc has odor-blocking properties to assist in keeping you fresh! Zinc is safe and effective, even for those with sensitive skin as it does not have traces of aluminum nor parabens. Many people are zinc deficient as our foods are grown in mineral deficient soil. Zinc is an essential mineral to your immune system so why not get some added benefits in the products you place on your largest organ, the skin! 

 

What to do if accidentally ingested?

Recommend oral intake of milk of choice (cow, rice, or soy),  honey or cream. Should contact your local poison control center for additional help. All products are for topical/external use only.
