DeO2 is used to symbolically represent that Cuticura variants are distinctly different from the ordinary deodorants.
Cuticura DeO2 variants allow the under arms to 'breathe' (perspire) normally without blocking the sweat pores
Sweating is as vital to physical health as breathing and eating. It not only rids the body of metabolic wastes but also regulates body temperature. Blocked pores cannot 'breath' (perspire). Perspiration allows excretion of environmental toxins and impurities through the skin. Perspiration is recognized by health practitioners worldwide as perhaps one of the most effective method of removing both difficult chemical and heavy metal toxins from the body.
Farnesol is an ingredient with anti-microbial and anti-aging properties. Farnesol eliminates the bacteria that cause malodor of the body.
Anti-perspirants contain salts of Aluminium, that block the skin pores there by reducing the sweat production. Cuticura deodorant does not block skin pores or affect the normal physiology of the skin. It contains Farnesol, the anti-bacterial that eliminates the odour causing bacteria
Alcohol commonly used in deodorants may cause mild irritation to even people with normal skin skin. This irritation due to alcohol may last for few minutes. However, discontinue use if irritation persists for a long time

Contact dermatitis fades only if the skin no longer comes in contact with the allergen or irritant. It is advisable to consult a Dermatologist immediately to avoid aggrvation of the problem
