No Pong Original

Love this product but my armpits are turning blackish. Why is this? Not sure I'll be able to use it in summer with sleeveless tops

Try washing armpits with fresh lemons.

My sister has the same problem, she was thinking of trying the bicarb free one. Have you continued using it?

I have been using No Pong original for 2 years now and have found it super effective. The last tin I bought seemed a bit thicker (maybe due to cold weather) but I was wondering if anything had changed in the ingredients as I have had a skin reaction in my armpits. I'm not usually sensitive to things. Thanks, Peta

Hi Peta
I am unsure if anything has changed in the ingredients, they are listed on the tin, so would assume they are the same. I am new to using this product and I am very impressed it does what it says, keeps odour away. As an aromatherapist, my theory with the skin reaction on your armpits and thicker in consistency is that maybe a particular batch wasn't mixed properly, for example sweet orange oil which is an ingredient, in too high concentration will cause a skin reaction. I had a small bottle of orange essential oil in my pocket one day and the lid was not on properly and it leaked causing a burn like redness on my skin and a stinging sensation which remained for a few days. Maybe use a little less in each application of your current tin and mix well in your hand pre application. Hope this helps.

Hi All,

I cannot rave about this product more. I sweat excessively which causes odor and I have finally found a product that works...but when I got my next shipment, it was a bit thicker and has now caused a severe irritation under my arms...almost like a burn.

Can we send it back and get another batch?

I just purchased No pong (bought 2 tins) and I have a red rash after 24hrs of using. Is there anything you would suggest to help or should I just stop using it/

I do also, they don't seem to bother me, just little ones here and there. they don't hurt and they don't seem to last long. I haven't tried the unscented one whether that helps.

Hi Caitlin, I stopped using No Pong and the irritation cleared up, then tried it again and the pimples and irritated raw skin came straight back. I feel that the last batch of No Pong is not the same as previous batches I’ve used

Same here feels like a clogged pore that got infected and I have it in both arm pits also redness.

Has anyone else’s armpits turned to a darker colour after using no pong? I love the fact that it works and is all natural, but unfortunately my underarms are now a dark brown in comparison to the rest of my skin. Anyone else?

Yes! This actually freaked me out this morning when I turned the lights on as I usually apply it in the dark before I leave for work! Not a nice look and won't be using at present til I can get rid of this damn stain :/

Has anyone tried this with merino shirts? I've had rexona anti-perspirant that leaves a white stain on the shirt...

This product is rather greasy - it won't stain dark shirts white so much as turn light shirts a dull grey under the arms. This can be removed to an extent with cotton by soaking in Napisan for quite a while - obviously not an option with wool. If your Merino is dark you'll be ok, but I'd avoid it with light colours.

Anyone found an effective way of removing the stains from clothes? I've got a few black dresses that now have white stains around the armpits.

Is it a wet and sticky substance or is it dry? My boyfriend has been trying natural products but it either doesn't work very welll or gives him a rash as a result of it being wet, encouraging bacteria growth.

I love the product don't get me wrong. Works like a dream, but the skin has discolored and is now quite dark. Had anyone else had this problem? I'm dark skinned, of Sri Lankan descent.

I my self similar skin tone to yourself and no issues with color. Honestly would be hard to tell being a hairy guy:) However for myself, if color did occur I would put up with it because of effectiveness of product. Cheers

My armpits have gone really dark since using it. I also stared using it since finding out I was pregnant and thought it may have been melasma. However after a bit of research I think it’s the bicarb reacting with my skin. I’m going to give the bicarb free version a go.
