Ta-keh-su-mee, known as bamboo charcoal, is a time-honoured Japanese secret for odor control and detoxification.

1. With a combination of activated charcoal and natural fermentation technology which fights odor-causing bacteria, you will stay odor free all day.

2. Activated charcoal has a porous surface that acts like a magnet, which chemically binds substances, such as bacteria and toxins to draw them out.

vegan and cruelty free, 99% natural

Activated bamboo charcoal is ideal for eliminating toxins from your body and has the power to clean deep inside sweat glands.

With its amazing detoxifying abilities, it is used as a universal antidote for poison in virtually every hospital in the world.

Activated charcoal is also used to treat drug overdoses as well as kidney and liver dialysis machines to purify blood before it is allowed to enter back into the body.

Charcoal is so potent that one gram (the size of your fingernail) can absorb enough toxins to fill four tennis courts.

what to expect while detoxing

It will take approximately 2-4 weeks for your body to adjust to the takesumi detox and you will soon be back to normal.

the purging phase

You may notice more sweating and a stronger odor than normal during the first 2-3 weeks.

This is completely normal. It is actually a sign that the takesumi detox is working and your body is going through the detox process. This is when you need to be especially daring and committed to your cleanse.

Some people may experience itchiness in their underarm area. Much like the increased sweating, this is a very normal result of the detox as trapped substances that are clogged up in your glands make their way out.
