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?+ -
Choose products like hume supernatural that incorporate probiotic-derived ingredients and avoid products that contain harsh preservatives and antimicrobials like triclosan.
Does hume supernatural have any “dirty” ingredients, or is it a “clean” formula?+ -
Hume deodorants are both supernatural and super clean! Our proprietary formulations contain no aluminum, phthalates, parabens, gluten, baking soda or triclosan
Is hume vegan?+ -

The arbitrator shall have no authority to award punitive damages and each party hereby waives any right to seek or recover punitive damages with respect to any dispute resolved by arbitration. The parties agree to arbitrate solely on an individual basis, and this agreement does not permit class arbitration or any claims brought as a plaintiff or class member in any class or representative arbitration proceeding. Except as may be required by law, neither a party nor the arbitrator may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration without the prior written consent of both parties, unless to protect or pursue a legal right. If any term or provision of this Section is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality, or unenforceability shall not affect any other term or provision of this Section or invalidate or render unenforceable such term or provision in any other jurisdiction. If for any reason a dispute proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, the parties hereby waive any right to a jury trial. This arbitration provision shall survive any cancellation or termination of your agreement to participate in any of our Programs.
Miscellaneous: You warrant and represent to Us that you have all necessary rights, power, and authority to agree to these Terms and perform your obligations hereunder, and nothing contained in this Agreement or in the performance of such obligations will place you in breach of any other contract or obligation. The failure of either party to exercise in any respect any right provided for herein will not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. If any provision of this Agreement is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. Any new features, changes, updates or improvements of the Program shall be subject to this Agreement unless explicitly stated otherwise in writing. We reserve the right to change this Agreement from time to time. Any updates to this Agreement shall be communicated to you. You acknowledge your responsibility to review this Agreement from time to time and to be aware of any such changes. By continuing to participate in the Program after any such changes, you accept this Agreement, as modified.

Your Rights and Responsibilities
You are permitted, and hereby agree, to only provide personal information to Hume if such personal information is accurate, reliable, and relevant to our relationship and only to the extent such disclosure will not violate any applicable data protection law, statute, or regulation or infringe upon anyone’s data privacy rights or privileges. If you provide Hume with any personal information about a third party, you expressly represent that you have the full right and authority to submit the information to Hume.

California Privacy Rights.
Pursuant to the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, as amended (“CCPA”), California residents may have additional data privacy rights, such as the right to be notified about what personal information is collected about you, and our intended use and purpose for collecting your personal information. California residents have the right to know and access personal information we have collected, used, disclosed, or sold about you over the past twelve (12) months, including the categories of personal information we have collected, used, disclosed, or sold about you; the categories of sources from which the personal information is collected; and, the business or commercial purpose for which your personal information was collected, used, disclosed, or sold; the categories of third parties with whom we have shared your personal information. California residents have the right to request Hume transfer, to the extent feasible, personal information in certain forms and formats. California residents have the right to request that we (and any applicable service provider) delete/erase your personal information under certain circumstances.
California residents have the right to opt-out of the sale of their personal information. Hume does not sell your personal information to third parties for profit. However, we do use third party website analytical tools and features, and marketing partners, and such relationships may involve the disclosure of your personal information for “valuable consideration” as set forth in the CCPA. Our Site is not directed and should not be used by minors under the age of sixteen (16) and therefore Hume does not knowingly sell the personal information of minors under sixteen (16) years of age without affirmative authorization.
California residents have the right not to be subject to discrimination for asserting their rights under the CCPA. If you make, or an authorized agent on your behalf makes, any request related to your personal information under the CCPA, Hume will ascertain your identity (and the identity of the authorized agent, to the extent applicable) to the degree of certainty required under the law before addressing your request. Hume may require you to match at least two or three pieces of personal information we have previously collected from you before granting you access to, or erasing, specific pieces, or categories of, personal information, or otherwise responding to your request. We may require written documentation that demonstrates a third party is authorized to serve as your agent for the purposes of submitting the requests set forth herein.
