10 Reasons To Try Lume Deodorant in 2024

Dr Shannon Klingman

1. Created by an OBGYN

Dr. Shannon Klingman, Founder & CEO, started Lume after seeing firsthand how women’s B.O. was being misdiagnosed and mistreated. Women were often over-prescribed antibiotics as though the vagina was to blame. She proved through clinical testing that most B.O. is caused by bacteria on the skin digesting bodily fluids. The same odor reaction in our underarms happens EVERYWHERE on our body.

2. Stops odor BEFORE it starts

Unlike certain other aluminum-free deodorants that attempt to mask odor, Lume acts as a pre-odorant. Lume blocks bacteria from digesting fluids on our skin—like sweat, semen, blood, and urine—which prevents B.O. from happening in the first place, anywhere on your body.

3. New brighter, longer lasting fragrances

Our new and improved scents meet clean beauty standards and have a lower allergen potential! We added 3 skin-safe ingredients to our cream deodorant that allow fragrances to shine truer, and counterbalanced the base scent some find unpleasant. Plus, meet our two new scent options: Fresh Alpine and Toasted Coconut!

4. Proven to control odor long after a shower alone

We often hear, “Why don’t you just take a shower?” Showering removes odors, but doesn’t prevent them. We love science, so we put Lume to the test. In clinical testing, 12 hours after a shower alone, the average person has an odor level of 5 out of 10. With Lume, the average odor level is 0 out of 10!
