We all want to use more natural products but when it comes to deodorant the last thing we want to do is be uncomfortable or end up stinky. Its true making the switch can seem kind of daunting because lets face it BO or excessive sweating can be embarrassing. It generally takes 2-3 weeks for your pits to go through a detox and if you can make it through that phase that's when you notice you actually sweat less and your natural deodorant starts to work even better than the commercial brand you used to use. The best time to quit is now as the weather is cooler and you wont be sweating as much. To help you make the transition easier and detox quicker we have designed a pit scrub as often people get build up and it can cause even natural deodorants to not work well. Ever get a dark look in your pits? This is build up and using a simple scrub once a week really helps keep your pits healthy and looking great. Our new lemon Pit scrub will not only help with detox it helps to keep your current deodorant working better and is also great to use right before shaving.
If you have tried natural deodorant only to break out in a terrible rash? This is actually a very common alergic reaction to baking soda and if you read ingredients you will find its in many natural deodorants because it does work well to reduce odor. I am allergic and after finding this out the hard way we designed our deodorant without baking soda. I did go through a couple of weeks of feeling more sweaty than normal and for a time I applied deodorant twice a day. Now its been a year since the switch and I can honestly tell you I sweat less and never stink even if I forget to apply it one day.
So why is it important to make the switch to natural deodorant? Because natural deodorants don't block pores, they allow the good bacteria on your skin to work, helping to reduce odor even when you are not wearing deodorant. The biggest reason to switch is the ingredient list in your deodorant. Many commercial anti-perspirants contain a list of toxic ingredients, such as aluminum chloralhydrate, parabens among other questionable ingredients that you really don't want to apply to your skin.
So is our deodorant right for you? Our bodies are all complex and where one thing works for someone it might not work the same for someone else. There are many natural deodorants on the market so the most important thing is finding one that works best for you. Just remember if you are new to natural deodorants give yourself time to detox. If you do break out in a rash from one discontinue it right away as its an allergic reaction to one of the ingredients and its one of the reasons it took me so long to make the switch. Once you break through that detox period you will be pleasantly surprised at how much better your own body works at fighting odors. I can honestly say I love our deodorant and can't believe the differnce it has made in my life.
