HOW IT WORKS

Apply liberally to clean, dry skin. Pat powder into skin well. Repeat as needed. Avoid broken or freshly shaved skin. Discontinue use if irritation occurs.

The luxury of Madame Lemy’s body powders harkens back to a time long before mass produced, heavy chemical deodorants. Our goal was to create a product that a modern woman would have purchased during the Art Deco period. Body powders had been used for centuries and most were made up of simple, natural ingredients. Cheaply made chemical deodorants hit the market and became popular because they were marketed as time-saving and convenient. Over time the decadent and pampering feeling that powders provided slipped away. Madame Lemy brings you back to luxury.

Store your deodorant in a cool and dry area.

We designed our packaging to be reusable and refillable. Once you run out, simply purchase a refill bag from our site. Take out the sifter and refill.  

Madame Lemy is not an antiperspirant, however, it has natural starches to help absorb moisture and keep you clean and dry. Remember the human body is meant to sweat.  Sweat does not cause odor, bacteria does. Our deodorant helps to naturally fight off bacteria.

When switching from a synthetic antiperspirant to a natural deodorant, it is common for your body to take a couple weeks to detox the chemicals and regulate to normal human function. Imagine it like spring cleaning for your sweat glands. Over years of using chemical antiperspirants, you have been blocking the bodies natural ability to sweat. During the detox phase, it is normal to sweat more and smell stronger as your body is releasing what has been trapped. Clear out the bad stuff. Your body will thank you.

Yes, all of our products have been dermatology tested and have been certified as hypoallergenic and non-irritant. In addition to that, we've received a lot of positive feedback from customers who have switched to Madame Lemy after having issues with other brands that irritated their skin. However, every person reacts differently. If irritation does occur, discontinue the product immediately and let us know.
