Extremely happy with this product. I run an equine facility on a farm. I’ve had dry underarms since using this product the past few days. I’ve got SC.01 EXT ORANGE GROVE, the fragrance is amazing! If your debating giving this a try go for it. Truly Incredible
I don’t mind spending £££ on deodorant. So I’ve tried Kiel’s, Aesop, Drunk Elephant. They are all lovely and smell great. BUT they don’t last long enough. I was intrigued enough to buy AKT when I saw the ad. Yes, yes it looks chic AF BUT wait, it’s been tested on dancers and performers? Now you’re talking! I’m delighted to say it is EVERYTHING I hoped for and more!
Constructive criticism: I appreciate the lack of plastic, but some might struggle with gripping the tiny lid as an accessibility issue.
A request: Is it possible to do a low-fragrance or fragrance free option? For those of us with sensory issues. My daughter is autistic and says the smell is too strong for her. I am going to try her with the lavender option as I currently have the Orange Grove.
Thank you so much!
This product is amazing! I have been looking for years for a natural deodorant that lasts all day, is effective even when exercising and has a nice scent. So many of the natural deodorants I have tried have been really disappointing, but not this one. I love the fact that it goes on so smoothly and clearly and that it’s reliable (even after a long run). As a theatre fan, I think the design is awesome, too. Thank you so much for creating such a sleek and wonderful product - my hunt for the perfect natural deodorant is finally over!
(I bought the Orange Grove scent)
I started my venture into natural deodorant as Mitchums 48 hours started to stop working for me. I tried Malin and Goetz first, which wasn’t bad but didn’t keep me fresh after a sweaty session at the gym/full day in the office. Then I tried Aurelia which was fresh but again didn’t keep odour away. Wild was an instagram gamble which definitely made me sweat more. I was about to give up when I stumbled upon AKT. Sceptical that it would actually work I ordered Orange Blossom and Onsen. Cycled 50 minutes into London and cycled back in heat. No smell under my armpit even when dry. Very impressed and not sure what wizardry is being used but I’m a convert. The fact it is better for the environment is a bonus. Thank you for creating, I was beginning to believe I would be a sweaty smelling goat for the rest of my life.
Wonderful stuff! I've been searching for a 'natural' deodorant for years as sprays give me asthma and numerous others either don't work or make itch or, more usually both! This smells great, lasts, is easy to apply and really works! I love it and wish you much success as I can't live without it now.
I have one tiny gripe/request. The cap is rather small and if you have problems gripping can be difficult to screw/unscrew with damp hands. Maybe this could be made into a 'wingnut' shape? Would be easier to handle and also made from metal in respect of your recyclable policy. So that aside, it's 10/10 from me!
This product is amazing - I have spent a fortune on unhealthy deodorants which claim to cover you for 72 hours - nothing worked. This really works and I cannot stop raving about it. My sister will back this up to - and better still all natural - I wont go back to anything else.
This product is a breath of fresh air (and all the other lovely smells it contains)
Still smelling lovely by the end of the day too.. even my clothes smell nice once removed, although doesn’t leave a single mark on them either .. converted good and proper ! Viva la revolution x
Showered yesterday afternoon, 4pm ish, and haven't showered since (purely for testing purposes 🤣).
I'm menopausal and have REALLY struggled with hot flushes at night. Plus I wake up in pools of sweat 😜
On top of that, my hormones are through the roof - I usually smell like a teenage boy about an hour after washing. YUK!
But today... There is absolutely NO SMELL!
I haven't even reapplied AKT since yesterday!
Safe to say I'm already impressed and I'll be buying the other flavours and an applicator very soon.
Thank you soooo much! ❤️❤️❤️
At the risk of sounding extremely “dirty”......I put some on early yesterday afternoon (a tiny tiny pea-sized amount as recommended) when it arrived, and was obsessed with fragrance straightaway! I’ve not showered since, and have done 40 minutes yoga this morning followed by a 5k run, so you can imagine how much sweat I have produced...... and I don’t smell! Not one teeny weeny little bit! And as an extra bonus, I can still smell the fragrance from the deodorant too!
Guys - it’s a solid 10/10 from me. I’m almost 40 now, and have used Sure aerosols for all of my adult life, before switching to Mitchum sticks, and neither of them compare with yours. Well done, and thank you!
I bought this and totally love the Orange Grove one, it smells great and works really well. I now wish I bought all 3, so I’ll be doing that next.
Ok, where do I start. First of all, the first day I ever tried Akt, I was in Athens with co-creator Andy Coxon who asked me to try a sample as we would be hiking the Acropolis that day in 35c heat! I applied and sweat my ass off hiking not only the Acropolis but around Athens all day. That night Andy asked me to smell my pits and no word of a lie, they smelled as fresh as they did that morning. I was sold.
Now I had already signed up to the Kickstarter before I met Andy, as a vegan I’m always looking for new cruelty free products. In Jan, my kickstarter package arrived with 2 balms and the applicator. I have applied once a day since and today, May 21st I used my last pea sized amount. It lasted for months! This product is not only money well spent but in my opinion the only deodorant balm you will ever need again!
Thankyou Andy and Ed for changing all our lives!
I have received 'The Onsen' in the post today, After Thunder tis on its way. subscribed to Orange Grove and purchased Orange Grove for my Aunt as a birthday gift. I love these products. pS Please excuse mylockdown hair. mx
I love your deodorant. I honestly feel so confident and a little goes a long way. I read some people said it was life changing and was like “sure!”. But seriously, it is. I’ll never go back or use anything different! Thank you!
I’ve been using your products since the beginning and tried all three. Absolutely love the orange ... keeps me dry and smell free. Best natural deodorant I’ve ever used ! Also working in the west end it’s been put to the test.
I have tried every 'natural' deodorant on the market for years and never found one that actually did everything I wanted it to do...until now. I recently returned from a 4 week hiking trip in New Zealand and AKT was the perfect travel companion. Not only does it actually work under pressure, where most natural deo varieties fail, the compact tube was a perfect fit for my carry-on pack. A little really does go a long way and so it lasts for ages; on your skin and in the tube. Plus the packaging is 100% fully recyclable - what's not to love?
I decided to go for a very long walk. 10 miles with my backpack. I used Orange Grove in the morning and walked for 10 miles. This balm kept me drier than Carol Baskin's saddle and still had that fresh aroma. (Not her saddle)
I have pre ordered The Onsen. I cannot wait. I might mix and match on the ole underarms. Thanks for this product.
Purchased the After Thunder scent. Smells great and is long lasting. I noticed that because I had been using antiperspirant for many years before hand it did take my body a week or so to get used to the switch however writing this review over a month later I can safely say my body has fully adjusted to it and I’m smelling great (I even seem to sweat LESS). I suppose the true test for this stuff is just around the corner with summer. We shall see! I’m sure it will perform just fine though. Overall I’m extremely happy with the product!
Absolutely love these deodorants. They smell fresh, nothing like usual canned deodorants. And SUPER convenient for travel, especially when packing light. One tube lasted way longer than my 2 week trekking holiday with multiple applications a day. And, when it’s vegan and cruelty free, why wouldn’t you use it?! LOVE!!
I tried loads of natural deodorants, some quite efficient if you’re having a couch day, some (mainly) really useless.
Akt deodorant are perfect.
Only one regret: as they last all day long, you just need to put some once a day ;)
Literally the best deodorant ever. Doesn't smell like traditional deodorant where you know the person is wearing deodorant - really just smells like a nice cologne/perfume that isn't overbearing. Bought this for my partner who, let's be honest, isn't the freshest at the end of the day. Even he's surprised that he doesn't have to reapply AKT throughout the day. Even after a long run, he still smells fine.
Love that it's zero-waste and environmentally friendly!
I've tried all 3 varieties and they are all fantastic. Really good value for money & they work!!
Fantastic product, gets me through a double show no problem, still smelling fresh. Wont be using any other product from now.
