Fishy body odor that you get when taking carnitine supplements is not a result of poor hygiene, so you might be asking yourself how a deodorant could make a difference for you? Lume Deodorant For Underarms and Private Parts works differently than other deodorants. It is not a cover up. It actually PREVENTS odor from starting in the first place!
If you have propionic acidemia or a metabolic dysfunction that makes it important for you to take carnitine supplements, Lume can make a difference for you even when other deodorants can’t.
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 take carnitine supplements 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.
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 is 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.
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, then farts out an odor.
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!
Maren, a little girl with propionic acidemia, struggled with the odor from L-carnitine supplements that caused her to smell like a “seafood market.”
Every product her parents tried in an attempt to mask the odor was unsuccessful, and the entire family was facing social isolation.
When Maren’s mom read about Lume, she was skeptical but decided to give it a chance.
When you have to take carnitine supplements, you are already battling with unusual body odors on a daily basis. 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 onto 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 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.
“My 5 year old daughter… [and] many kids with metabolic diseases have issues with odor. In our rare disease community there are fragile children who are even bullied and excluded because of it... Since trying Lume, the smell cannot be detected. I feel like my daughter and my family have gained a piece of normalcy and dignity back.”
“Absolutely amazing & worth every single penny! My son has a metabolic disorder that leaves him smelling fishy when he sweats & we live in a hot climate. Within a few days the fishy smell was 100% gone. This deodorant has literally changed his life. Thank you Lume!”
“I was diagnosed with TMAU a few years ago, but I have had it my whole life. I was very embarrassed about it, no matter how many showers I took the smell would not go away. Thanks to Lume I have the confidence to go out in public without wondering if people are talking about me, and I no longer hear comments about my smell… :)”
