‘Miracle’ deodorant you only have to apply ONCE a week sends shoppers into a frenzy – and it was originally designed for soldiers in wartime

  • Lavilin is a aluminium-free deodorant that needs to be applied once a week 
  • Product was originally designed during World War II for the soviet army 
  • Launched in Australia in 2017 and has since built up a growing base of loyal fans

A ‘miracle’ deodorant that claims you only need to apply once a week has racked up hundreds of five star reviews – with customers branding it ‘lifechanging’.

Lavilin Laboratories is a herbal, aluminium-free deodorant with the makers claiming that one teardrop sized application will keep users sweat-free for seven days.

It contains natural ingredients, including a combination of vitamin E, zinc, talc and castor seed oil which helps lock in moisture by preventing water loss through the outer layer of the skin.  One pot, costing $27.45, will last a year.

Aussie influencers, including Alex Lyons (pictured) has praised the product.

While it claims not to stop sweat, it instead removes the odour from perspiration.

The product was originally designed during World War II for the soviet army – and was commercialised in 1974 by Tel Aviv based biochemist Ziska Hlavin.

It launched in Australia in 2017 and has since built up a growing base of loyal fans with the company’s website showing dozens of reviews.

‘Well I was dubious it would work that well in the humidity of where I live but I was wrong. This stuff is incredible. For me it lasts 6 days which is awesome. Won’t go back to sprays,’ said one.  

‘I only have to put on Lavilin once a week; no more suddenly realising that I forgot to put on deodorant.

What’s in Lavilin Laboratories all-natural ‘seven day’ deodorant?

Chamomile (Bisabolol) is a herb that comes from the flowers of the Asteraceae plant family. It has been consumed for centuries as a natural remedy for several health conditions and consumed as a tea. The essential oil is used extensively in cosmetics and aromatherapy. In Lavilin products, chamomile is included for its skin conditioning properties to nourish and soothe the skin and for its antibacterial benefits.

Arnica Montana Flower extract is used in herbal medicine for pain relief and for its anti-inflammatory qualities. Lavilin uses the natural properties of Arnica Montana, a yellow-orangish flower that grows in the mountains of Europe and Siberia, to restore skin suppleness as it calms and moisturises the skin.

Castor seed oil is rich in ricinoleic acid – a monounsaturated fatty acid – and helps lock in moisture by preventing water loss through the outer layer of the skin. It has antimicrobial properties that may help fight bacterial overgrowth when applied to the skin Lavilin also uses castor seed oil as a skin conditioning and moisturising agent. It has a very low comedogenic rating ie. doesn’t block pores, as opposed to coconut oil which has a fairly high rating.

Pro-Bio Balance is based on a unique complex of ‘good bacteria’. This ingredient combines milk protein, lactose and Bifida Ferment Lysate which provides essential nutrients while detoxing and working to replenish the natural biome of the skin. Helping to stimulate the skin’s metabolism, pro-bio balance works to protect against damage caused by environmental stress and also enhances the skin’s natural age-resisting function. The Vegan Deodorant Cream uses Lactococcus Ferment Lysate, a different probiotic without the milk base.

Triethyl citrate is an organic ester of citric acid found in citrus fruit and is also naturally present in wine in small amounts. Triethyl citrate is used as a skin conditioning agent for sensitive skin areas and works to inhibit odour-causing bacteria.

Vitamin E in the form of Tocopherol is derived from vegetable oils. It is a natural antioxidant to maintain freshness and shelf life while also nourishing the skin. Vitamin E strengthens the capillary walls of the skin and improves moisture and elasticity.

Zinc oxide is the combination of the natural essential mineral of zinc and oxygen molecules to produce a white powder. Zinc oxide, also an effective sunscreen, works as a mild astringent to dry excess oil. It shows antiseptic properties by inhibiting bacteria and protects and soothes the skin.

Talc (Pharma grade) is a clay mineral composed of hydrated magnesium silicate. It has been in use since ancient times and long been used in cosmetics, as a food additive: in chewing gum, rice and even your good old table salt as an anti-caking agent, and pharmaceutical products. Pharmaceutical grade talc, the purest and most refined form of talc, is widely used in medicated foot powders, creams, lotions, ointments and as a filler in tablets and vitamin supplements. Lavilin uses the strictest grade of pure Pharma Talc in its products that remain on the surface of the skin to stabilise the consistency for a flawless product.

Calendula is a species of perennial herbaceous plant in the daisy family, also known as Marigolds. While the flowers have been used in cooking for centuries, ancient cultures used calendula flowers to treat skin conditions, to stop bleeding, prevent infection and speed healing in cuts and wounds. Lavilin includes Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract for its deep hydration, soothing antiseptic and antimicrobial properties to support the natural skin regeneration processes.

Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax is the natural vegetable wax from the leaves of the palm Copernicia prunifera. This palm is native to Brazil where it is called ‘the tree of life’. The wax is used in many industries, including food products and in cosmetics, especially lipsticks and lip balms. Carnauba wax has a low comedogenic rating of 1, meaning it doesn’t block pores and naturally protects, softens and moisturises the skin

‘I love that I don’t have to worry about running out of deodorant and having to keep rebuying so regularly… kinda in line with my secret wish to have a never-ending roll of toilet paper. I am using less packaging which is helping me in my efforts to be living a waste-free life,’ said another.

Aussie influencers, including Alex Lyons, has praised the product.  

The website also cites a study by the Institute of Skin Research in Tel Aviv, claiming its effectiveness, claiming single application of Lavilin 002 is effective for 6.28 days on average.

Other fans claim they put it once every 10 days in winter and once every four days in summer.

‘I ordered some samples and to my amazement they worked! My work uniform is polyester and I swear more than seems average, so I find I stink at the end of the day. Using this cream has stopped the smell completely, I’m SO IMPRESSED,’ said one.

‘I started using the product a few months ago after using other natural products. I have to say that this one is the best. Not only does it last you only need the tiniest amount. I have even converted my husband who was a sceptic at first,’ added another.  

‘It’s not just a deodorant; IT’S a miracle cream.  It’s an excellent deodorant you literally don’t have to worry about Body odor at all for days. Just be sure you shower with soap wipe your armpits with alcohol pads and apply a tiny blob onto your pits and massage well,’ said another.

However, some reviews are less favourable, claiming it left them with less than favourable odours.

‘Works decently well but it leaves really intense white stains on clothing that are difficult to remove. Especially if you wear black & I do everyday. Might be ok for lighter colours. Not something I can continue to wear,’ said one.

‘This is a decent deodorant. I like that it’s natural, but at the same time don’t expect it to work as hard as a standard anti-perspirant. That said, I still use it because I don’t want to use Aluminum based products,’ added another.

While using the product, you can still shower and wash under your arms as this will not affect the effectiveness of the product.
