When I switched to organic food, natural cleaners and clean body care products, the biggest challenge I had was finding a deodorant that actually worked! I’m a super active person as y’all know and I cannot tell you how many deodorants didn’t come through to do the job part way through the day. And remember, I live in Texas lol! So here are my favorites:
#1: Primal Pit Paste-as you know, my amazing friend Raime is always giving me great tips on natural goodies, and she is totally responsible for this. This is hands down my favorite! It’s organic, clean and the scents are wonderful. The only weird thing is that you don’t spray or roll it on, you actually scoop a little out of the jar and rub it in. Once you get past that part, you’ll be hooked:)
#2: Crystal Deodorant-this is a non-aluminum, natural mineral salt deodorant. A lot of people don’t know this, but all the deodorants we’ve been using for the last couple of decades have aluminum in them. Your lymph nodes are right by your armpit, so you’re basically inviting possible issues with breast cancer by using convention brands. Ugh!
#3: Tom’s of Maine: I’ve always used Tom’s toothpaste because I do fluoride free, but I was happy to find that their deodorant was the first one I liked. After a while, I realized I was using the men’s brand which is kinda funny! But aside from that, give it a try and see what you think.
So that’s a wrap! I hope you have a chance to try one of these brands and you can finally stop throwing failed products into your cosmetic graveyard drawer. Good luck and let me know what works for you!
