Here at Pit Liquor, we’re passionate about putting purposeful ingredients to work…. specifically, to make our pits a better place!

This was one of the major reasons we created Pit Liquor after all – we were sick of suffering from the lack of truly natural deodorant options on the market, and the hassle of figuring out which ingredients were helpful - and which caused more harm than good. So, we cut the BS, laissez-faire standards the “natural” industry was upholding and committed to only food-grade, nature-derived ingredients. Turns out, it’s effective.

Sharing about the wonderful ingredients in our formulas is another priority of ours. You should know the benefits your pits get from each and every refreshing spritz of Pit Liquor. Today, we’re putting the spotlight on Arrowroot Powder. This one is fundamental to the whole concept of why Pit Liquor works, so let’s unpack the power of this simple, yet mighty white powder you’ll see at the bottom of every bottle. We’ll start with the basics. 

What is Arrowroot Powder?

This is just one of the ingredients in Pit Liquor you could find at the grocery store. It’s a root vegetable that is often sold as a powder, and it’s typically used as a thickening agent in place of cornstarch, yet this is not how it functions in Pit Liquor. 

Native to South America, Arrowroot has a rich history of being used in traditional medicine. With its nourishing properties, the plant has a known ability to heal and detoxify wounds, as well as calm skin irritations. That’s right, your pits are actually the perfect place for Arrowroot Powder if you’re prone to razor burn or just have sensitive skin. (FYI – this isn’t the case with baking soda, another white powder found in many natural deodorants… baking soda falls into that “more harm than good” category, and leaves many people with rashes!).

Why is Arrowroot in Pit Liquor?

Arrowroot has quite the role in our formulas for several impressive reasons. For starters, it’s rejuvenating, soothing, and softening. All things you want in a personal hygiene product, if you ask us. Furthermore, it contains many beneficial vitamins and minerals like zinc, iron, potassium, and B6.

Most importantly, it’s anti-microbial and compliments the whiskey and vodka by extending their bacteria-fighting barrier on your skin. Arrowroot carries on the good work of making your pits an inhospitable place for bacteria. It’s alcohol’s BFF in the fight against BO.

To add to the perks, Arrowroot Powder naturally contains deodorizing properties and it absorbs sweat and moisture, making your pits a bit drier, without any noticeable residue or harmful sweat-blocking properties (looking at you, Aluminum).

In Conclusion

Arrowroot Powder has a pretty stellar reputation. The myriad functions of this phenomenal plant have earned its top billing in Pit Liquor’s recipe, and now you know why.

So, say no to the deodorant guessing game and grab a bottle of Pit Liquor, you won’t regret making your pits a better place.
