  • Shipping & Delivery
  • Why did you switch from USPS to UPS?
    Initially, we were using USPS and we noticed that many packages were not arriving in the time frame within our standards. To assure that your products arrived in time without compromise, we decided that it was best to switch carriers.
  • What days do you ship orders?
    Due to the nature of our products, we ship Monday- Wednesday. Orders placed after Wednesday will be shipped the following week beginning on Monday.
  • My package was lost. What do I do?
    We offer an add-on service called Route which is automatically selected at checkout. If it is deselected, you agree to not have package protection. Should an issue arise, customers can quickly file claims through a link sent via email or directly in the Route app. Once a claim is submitted, Route jumps into action. Based on the merchant’s preference, Route will either refund the purchase or reorder the same products for the customers—ultimately creating a second sale for the merchant. Please note, we are not responsible for lost or stolen packages if the Route Protection is deselected or not added to cart.

    Absolutely. All of our products can be recycled or ether up cycled. By product: • Plastic Shea Butta Jars: made of PET recyclable material. Place in appropriate sorting bins or up cycle and use for storage of household items. • Deodorant tubes: recyclable cardboard material. Place in appropriate sorting bins in your location.
  • How do I open the deodorant tube?
    Start by gently twisting and pulling to get the cap off. Our tubes are push tubes; so, to get the product visible gently push the bottom up. Once applied, gently push the product down with your finger tips. Once you get this down, the process is easy after that.
  • Ho do I use EKONADE' natural deodorant?
    Our product is formulated to glide on smooth and clear to help you feel confident and empowered during each wear. Apply 3-4 swipes of the product to each armpit. Be sure to get the perimeter of your pits as well.
  • How often should I use EKONADE' natural deodorant?
    Well, that is totally your decision. However, if you want to feel fresh and clean, we recommend that you apply daily after every cleanse. If you have an intense workout session, you will have to reapply after a shower, of course. The amount of times you apply, depends on your daily activities.
  • Do I need to detox my underarms before using EKONADE' natural deodorant?
    Our products are gently formulated and with the use of plant based oils and powders, your odor causing bacteria would be eliminated with each application. However, we do offer a range formulas ranging from regular, regular- active, sensitive skin, sensitive skin-active.
  • Can you explain the deodorant ranges?
    For sure! We created the different ranges because we understood that some people have a more intense body odor than others which is dependent upon their activity level or body composition. Take a look at our formulas explained: • Regular: someone that has regular everyday activity to intense; this person may not get as sweaty and stinky as others even with intense movements. • Regular- active: someone that can have intense body odor, major sweating, and typically works out 4+ days a week. • Sensitive skin- someone that can have irritations due to high levels of baking soda. • Sensitive skin- active: someone who is still pretty active with sensitive skin but would still prefer more coverage to neutralize odor. • Baking Soda free- someone who has extreme sensitivity to baking soda.
  • Is EKONADE deodorant safe for kids?
    Yes. We formulate our product with plant based oils and powders that are gentle enough even for kids.
