Make the most of Lavilin

Put on your Lavilin tonight after a shower where you have washed the underarm area and towel-dried well. You may need another repeat for the next evening and then see how long you last before the BO starts again.

Troubleshooting: While most people’s skin bacteria respond straight away to Lavilin, some take a few extra days to settle in, regardless of whether you have been using an aluminium-based or non-aluminium deodorant.  As the skin heals or readjusts from a previous deodorant, there can be a time when the BO-causing bacteria go a bit nuts.  You have 2 options:

  1. One method is to refrain from using other deodorants for 48 hours eg. over a weekend, to allow the previous products to be removed from your skin (and some will take even longer).  Then on Sunday night, Lavilin is applied in the evening after a shower where you have washed the underarm area and towel-dried well.
  2. If you don’t have time to rebalance your skin, then just put it on tonight after a shower then again tomorrow night after a shower and daily as needed until the BO bacteria are under control and you can start to stretch it out over days.

Use your finger or the spatula provided to smear a teensy tiny smudge of Lavilin Underarm Deodorant Cream. Remember, LESS is more. Spread gently in the centre of each underarm. It should be such a tiny amount that it goes transparent in seconds. If it is still thick and white then it’s too much.

If you have a sample sachet, cut down the sides and open out like a butterfly and peg closed for next time. Each small blob is enough for *at least* 5 applications for both arms.

Now to see how long you last…

Re-apply Lavilin only when odour reappears.  If you start to get body odour, just apply Lavilin (even without a shower in an emergency) and it will murder the smell. Ongoing application should ideally be after an evening shower for greatest effectiveness. The body temperature is lower and the sweating is less, having more of a chance to work on those BO-bacteria. People last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. How long can you go?

Extended settling in time

Lavilin works first go for most people but everyone has a different settling-in time. You may need to give it a few days to weeks of everyday use before you get the full force of Lavilin Odour Protection. 

If you’ve been using a heavy duty antiperspirant – ie. 24/48hr+/clinical, or a natural style of deodorant that contains bicarb soda / sodium bicarbonate, magnesium hydroxide or other highly alkaline base or ethanol alcohol as one of the main ingredients, your skin may need more of a recovery time to be restored to its normal pH and diversity of microflora. The most effective way to do this is to rest your skin from all product for more than a few days, or as long as you’re able. Sometimes a week is a good start. When caring for your armpits, wash gently with your hands only – no harsh scrubbing – and switch to gentle, soap-free cream or oil-based cleansers / body wash. Choose ones with barrier-repairing ingredients that cleanse the skin without destroying the protective acid layer. Be super kind to those delicate pits of yours. Recovery time for your skin depends on how much damage there is from prolonged use of the abrasive and harsh chemicals. Note: Clay or charcoal will not aid this process  – best to let the skin do its thing on its own with as least interruption as possible.

Once you’ve given your skin a chance to start the recovery process, you can also use the stronger Foot deodorant cream on the armpits during this next stage of recovery to help get you lasting longer. It has the same gentle ingredients as the underarm creams but is slightly more concentrated and can help get on top of the more stubborn BO-producing bacteria. 

If at first Lavilin is not working for you, apply daily until you can start to stretch it out. Please contact us if you need more troubleshooting. We will do all we can to help you get it working for you! 


Don’t apply if you have a known sensitivity to any of the ingredients listed below. As with any new skin product, it’s best to do a patch test on the back of your hand or inside wrist to check for any skin sensitivity before using, and best not to apply right after shaving or to areas of broken skin.

Lavilin is just as effective on unshaven armpits – no need to shave if it’s not your thing. Just part the hair and rub in the armpit centre on your skin as much as possible, still only using a teensy tiny smudge.
