Congratulations to Bite for completing a clinical trial with Citruslabs
Natural Deodorant for a clean, cruelty-free experience
Bite investigated their natural deodorant to assess its odor-neutralizing properties, and determine whether it would avoid staining users' clothing and improve quality of life. Made with only clean and non-toxic ingredients, Bite Deodorant is free from harmful chemicals, aluminum, and synthetic fragrances that are commonly found in conventional deodorants. Their mission is to provide you with a safe and effective deodorant that is not only good for your body but also for the environment.
To test the effectiveness of their product, Bite decided to conduct a clinical trial with Citruslabs.
Clean products that offers supercharged performance
Bite not only prioritizes eco-conscious formulas and packaging of their products, but they live by it! Bite only uses recycled, biodegradable or compostable materials. Through this approach, they are looking to reduce plastic waste - in packaging and product ingredients.
Apart from being known for their toothpaste bites, they developed a deodorant, that is, exactly like their toothpaste, 100% plastic-free. And it is the first deodorant that achieved this. While developing their deodorant, which comes in many amazing scents, they worked with perfumers committed to transparency to create one-of-a-kind scents while focusing on sustainability and environmental practices.
Bite has received rave reviews from its users and decided to keep up the momentum with clinical research through Citruslabs. Their goal is to deliver scientifically informed formulas to their customer base and create claims based on the product's actual performance on real people.
Bite has created a plant-based deodorant, in the hopes of creating something to tackle odor without harsh chemicals and plastic packaging. The deodorant is vegan, cruelty-free, includes only clean ingredients and comes with compostable refills. It boasts natural ingredients including coconut oil, castor seed oil, sunflower seed oil, shea butter, Vitamin E, and zinc ricinoleate.

This was a single-arm observational study over four weeks. Each day for the duration of the study, participants had to shower daily and put on the deodorant first thing in the morning after showering (but before sweating) and reapply it during the day, as needed. Participants completed a survey at baseline, week two, and week four to provide information about their odor, potential stains on clothes, and quality of life.
35 male and female participants, aged 24-65, completed the study. All participants were generally healthy with some previous natural deodorant use, and exclusively used the Bite product for the duration of the study.
Quantifying Bite's natural Deodorant
This observational study conducted with Bite is a great first step and foundational for their research. It established a baseline for their product's effects and performance. The next step for Bite would be to invest in a double-blind placebo-controlled study, the gold standard for clinical research.
Aims & Objectives: To evaluate the effects of Bite's natural deodorant on markers of underarm odor, clothing staining and overall quality of life.
Study design: Interventional and observational.
Methods: A total number of 35 male and female participants completed the study across 4 weeks, using the deodorant after normal showering. The participants were surveyed using an extensive questionnaire at baseline and weeks two and four.
Results: After using the Bite Deodorant over half of participants preferred it to their previous deodorants, while 74% reported increased quality of life after four weeks of use.
Conclusion: Bite's Deodorant is effective in reducing odor, sweat stains, odor stress, and improving the quality of life in participants.
