frequently asked questions
What does hume supernatural mean?+ -
Not just for men, nor just for women, hume is a modern gender neutral brand, that stands for you, me and all humans. Hume goes above and beyond natural, delivering results where ordinary naturals disappoint. Our purpose is to live supernatural, and to inspire others to do the same.
Why are hume supernatural deodorants better?+ -
Most deodorants simply try to cover up the odor. No wonder they don’t work! We made a better product with a smarter, multi-faceted approach that addresses all of the causes of B.O., while also promoting healthier skin.
How do hume supernatural deodorants work?+ -
First, hume helps keep you dry with super-absorbers, including mineral-rich diatomaceous earth. Then, a second layer of protection prevents odor before it starts, while also keeping the microbiome in a healthy balance using probiotic-derived deodorizers. Finally, hume nourishes, soothes and hydrates skin with the power of natural desert flora, like Prickly Pear, which can thrive in even the most extreme environments.
Does hume supernatural really work for both men and women?+ -
Unlike many brands made specifically for men or women, hume was made with all skin types in mind, tested and optimized with a diverse human population (never tested on animals!). Hume is for all humans!
What is B.O. and why do we get it?+ -
When stress and heat trigger sweating, certain bacteria living on your skin can break down these biofluids….and, while you won’t see it or feel it, you’ll smell it!
What is the microbiome and why is it important?+ -
The microbiome is like an army of good bacteria living on our skin which helps protect us from harmful bacteria and disease.
How do I maintain a healthy microbiome?+ -
