Lume Is Life Changing!


“It definitely helps with HS odors...this disease is depressing enough, but this I feel might give me some dignity back... I had one spot open and drain and I didn’t know because it didn’t smell, the one reason - the deodorant! Lume is a lifesaver, I can’t imagine life without it!!!

Deodorant Sticks | Lumē

Powerful Odor Control AND Gentle On Skin

If you suffer from hidradenitis suppurativa, you know a thing or two about discomfort and skin irritation. You want to use products on your skin that will not aggravate your condition, or irritate skin further.

Lume was formulated to control odor while being gentle on the most sensitive skin, and it is safe to use wherever you sweat. This includes areas affected by hidradenitis suppurativa (HS).

While HS is not caused by improper hygiene, using Lume along with regular hygiene practices may help you avoid irritation around lesions in your armpits or groin, and control odor from seeping lesions.

Lume Was Developed by a Doctor and Is Safe to Use Anywhere

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. Since HS commonly occurs in areas where hair and apocrine glands are present (armpits, groin, anal, and chest regions), it’s nice to know there is an effective natural deodorant safe to use on all these areas.

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.

You can use Lume anywhere

For the pits just apply Lume like normal.

You can use Lume anywhere

For everywhere else, just twist, swipe, and apply like a lotion.

Lume is doctor-developed, and made with naturally-derived ingredients safe for any external use.

How Does Lume Work?

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.

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 blocks bacteria from consuming bodily fluids, which in turn stops odor from ever happening.

If you have hidradenitis suppurativa, Lume can help control the odors from burst or leaking lesions.

That’s the Lume difference!

Lume Does Not Contain Aluminum or Baking Soda

When you have a chronic skin condition like HS, you are already battling with irritated skin and 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.

The last thing you want to do when you have HS is intentionally clog pores. 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.

They Contain Aluminum

Aluminum traps toxins in your pores.

They’re Only for Armpits

Most deodorants are only made for armpits.

They Cause Rashes

Baking soda in natural deodorants causes rashes.

They Only Mask the Smell

They try to cover the smell after it forms.

Lume Scents Are Mild and Naturally-Derived

Lume doesn’t use synthetic fragrances to mask body odors. Synthetic fragrances can be a major irritant for skin, so you don’t want to take any chances when you have a skin condition like HS. Synthetic fragrances are usually 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.

Say Goodbye to Lingering Odor in Clothes

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 on clean 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.
