"Body odor with bromhidrosis is nothing like normal B.O. It's still surreal to me that I can just wear whatever I want, go out in public, and not have to constantly turn my head under my arm to see if people can smell me. It's just completely life-changing that something as simple as a deodorant can make me feel extremely confident."

If you have bromhidrosis, you know a thing or two about dealing with the frustration of deodorants and antiperspirants that fail to live up to their promises. You might even feel like there isn’t a deodorant capable of controlling your body odor.
Lume Deodorant For Underarms & Private Parts can provide freedom from body odor caused by bromhidrosis even when other deodorants can’t. That’s because it’s not a cover-up: It actually PREVENTS odor from forming in the first place. By knocking out ALL body odor, Lume can also ease social anxiety you may have felt due to bromhidrosis.
Dr. Shannon Klingman developed Lume Deodorant as a solution for her patients who were frustrated by body odor. She wanted to find a way to help control all external odors that were eroding people’s self confidence.
Lume is safe to use wherever you have odor and wish you didn’t. It’s the first deodorant you can use anywhere on your body. When you have bromhidrosis and worry that body odor is not limited to your armpits, it’s nice to know you have a deodorant defense that can safely be used wherever it is needed. Pits, privates, skin folds, and feet - Lume gives you odor control exactly where you want it.
For the pits just apply Lume like normal.
For everywhere else, just twist, swipe, and apply like a lotion.
With Lume, you don’t have to worry about the inconvenience of reapplying deodorant throughout the day. Princeton Consumer Research put Lume to the test, and Lume was clinically-proven to control body odor for up to 72 hours. That’s practically unheard of for a natural deodorant! Lume might work like magic, but it’s actually based in science.
Lume’s patented formula sets it apart as the first natural deodorant of its kind. It doesn’t mask body odor with strong fragrances, but instead prevents odor from starting in the first place.
When you have bromhidrosis, your sweat itself doesn’t stink. Body odor is a byproduct of the bacteria living on your skin. That bacteria thrives in a moist environment and feasts on bodily fluids like sweat, blood, urine, and discharge.
Lume is applied to your skin like a lotion and provides a protective barrier that blocks bacteria from consuming bodily fluids, which in turn stops odor from happening.
That’s the Lume difference!
Since the age of 14, Brittney has suffered from chronic bromhidrosis, a condition that causes her to have unusually foul body odor that seemed impossible to manage. She was continuously self-conscious about her odor, and it was seriously affecting her quality of life.
She discovered Lume and is experiencing a “surreal” freedom from body odor. When a deodorant can lift the burden of a chronic condition, that is life changing!
When you have bromhidrosis, you are already battling with unusually strong and persistent body odor. You don’t want to experiment with deodorants and antiperspirants that are ineffective or contain ingredients that are well-known problem makers.
Aluminum salts are used in antiperspirants in an effort to plug sweat pores and reduce sweat. However, aluminum is not terribly effective at reducing sweat and is actually known to increase the colony count of bacteria that is responsible for odor in the first place. Aluminum is also responsible for those dreaded yellow stains on white shirts!
Baking soda is a common ingredient in many natural deodorants but can be a problem ingredient for many because it can cause irritation and rashes. Why is baking soda a problem? Our skin’s optimal pH is 4.5 - 6.5, and baking soda has a pH of 9. Lume is baking soda-free and effectively controls odors without disturbing your skin’s natural balance.
Aluminum traps toxins in your pores.
Most deodorants are only made for armpits.
Baking soda in natural deodorants causes rashes.
They try to cover the smell after it forms.
You could swear that shirt was clean when you put it on, but now that you left the house and the heat is on, you aren’t so sure. Why are your clothes hanging on to the past?
Antiperspirants contain aluminum combined with waxes that take up permanent residence in your clothes. Waxes combined with odors of days gone by become embedded in the fibers of your clothes and reactivate with your body heat.
Lume is water-based, so it rubs in like a lotion and washes out of clothes. It won’t leave your white undershirts with yellow pit stains or leave white streaks on dark shirts, and your clothes won’t betray you when the temperature rises.
Lume lets you smell like you, and your clothes smell like clothes.
Lume doesn’t use fragrances to mask body odors. Synthetic fragrances in other odor control products tend to be overwhelmingly strong, and many find strong fragrances mixed with their own body odors more offensive than body odor alone.
Dr. Klingman developed Lume with the most sensitive skin in mind. Lume is scented with essential oils and naturally-derived botanicals that will not irritate your skin or your nose. The scents are mild - usually fading an hour or so after applying. Lume also has an Unscented option.
“I have had issues with horrible odor since I was 13, I'm now 65. Doctors had no idea how to treat but tried antibiotics. I almost became a hermit. I tried Lume and within a week no smell. Your product is an answer to my prayers. Thank you so much.”
“Before Lume, I had such bad body odor and no deodorant was able to stand a chance. I used this on my pits, privates, and feet and it was a miracle! No stink! …Thank you Lume!”
“I SWEAT and nothing worked for me... Sometimes I would have to reapply the Secret Clinical Strength... I didn't have to reapply [Lume] after showering and didn't have any odor for 72 hrs straight... This doesn't have aluminum and doesn't leave a sticky film. I will only use Lume from now on.”
