5 Common Pit Liquor Questions Answered
Occasionally we hear from customers who are concerned there might be something wrong with their bottle of Pit Liquor. 99.99% of the time, the answer is “nothing is wrong!” Our small-batch, handmade process means that our product isn’t as “perfect” as one made in a tube or can in a factory—our all-natural ingredients produce slight variations at times. We’re perfectly imperfect and we're proud of it. But we understand you may have some questions, so here's a dive into our five most common questions:
1. Why is there sediment at the bottom of my bottle?
That sediment is a star player in our deodorant's stink-fighting power. A blend of arrowroot, sea salt, and teas, the white-ish powder packs a powerful punch to the bacteria in your pits. To make the most of this, be sure you always shake your bottle before applying Pit Liquor.
2. What are those greenish bubbles in my Whiskey Vanilla products?
People sometimes ask if the green bubbles (found in most scents) are mold, but we're happy to report that it's actually the power of plants! The essential oils and jojoba oil fueling each scent form little bubbles inside your bottle. As the oils steep with our proprietary blend of botanicals, the jojoba oil changes color. The greenish bubbles are a sign of blended plant power and nourishing oil—just shake well to get all the goodness!
3. Why is my bottle darker/lighter than my last bottle?
Our master blenders combine the perfect mix of overproof alcohol, essential oils, and our tea/arrowroot blend to each batch before bottling. Different batches of ingredients can lead to slightly different shades in the finished product. But never fear, the powerful Pit Liquor you love is the same in every bottle. The color has nothing to do with the unmatched power of Pit Liquor.
4. Why does this bottle look different than my last one?
Maybe your label was a little crooked, or the fill-line isn’t quite in the same spot as last time. In a world of mechanized factories, we subconsciously expect every bottle to look exactly the same. At our warehouse, Pit Liquor’s small team fills each bottle by hand and applies every label before sending it off to you. That means there may be subtle differences in each label or fill-line, but we like to think of this as our own stamp of authenticity. No machines means real jobs, real people, and a kick-ass natural deodorant made right here in the US.
5. What’s that fuzz in my roller bottle?
If you've used your roller bottle and all of a sudden notice a fuzz ball in the bottom of your bottle. Don’t worry - it’s not mold. It’s just lint or other stray particles that the roller ball has pulled into your bottle. Even if it looks like a little twister, it doesn’t affect the strength of your Pit Liquor, and won’t harm you. Promise.
