The following recipe contains only 3 ingredients, making it faster to prepare.

Starch is mixed with baking soda, then you slowly heat the coconut oil and pour it over the starch mixture. Mix well and pour the mixture in a clean container. Place it in freezer for solidification. Store it at a temperature at about 25 degrees, or it can be kept in the refrigerator.
Baking soda neutralizes sweat pH which reduces the bacteria number and makes odor disappear. Cornstarch absorbs moisture and smoothes skin.
