BEST EVER NATURAL PRODUCTS™
Are you satisfied with the deodorant you use? We have tried so many brands, only to be disappointed time and again by their ineffectiveness. Some leave you wet, some leave a white residue on your clothing, and some just seem to quit working by mid day. Not to mention, the harmful chemicals on the ingredient list. To avoid these chemicals, you pay a higher price for natural organic deodorants, only to realize they do not work when you need them the most.
Did you know that the ingredients found in conventional deodorants have been associated with seizures, breast cancer, prostate cancer, Alzheimer's, bone formation diseases, thyroid and hormone disruption, damage to the central nervous system, birth defects, and liver and kidney problems? Eeeeek! We'd rather smell bad! You can check out more information, here, here and here about the harmful toxins lurking in our body products and why you should avoid them.
Top 5 Toxic Ingredients Lurking in Conventional Deodorants:
ALUMINUM: It’s a metal, used to inhibit sweat from escaping the pores. This heavy metal is bioaccumulative, meaning that it stores in our fat cells and accumulates making it extremely hard to remove from the body. Aluminum has been linked to breast cancer, prostate cancer and linked to an increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
PARABENS: It’s a preservative that is a toxic petrochemical derivative, which can disrupt our delicate hormonal balance, which can lead to things like early puberty in children and an increased risk of hormonal cancers. It has also been linked to organ toxicity and birth defects.
FRAGRANCE/PHTHALATES: It can be legally hidden in hundreds of ingredients in “fragrance” or “parfum”: a “trade secret” in the industry. More than 75% of the time if you have fragrance, you have legally hidden phthalates (THAL ates), known endocrine disruptors, that are linked with birth defects, breast cancer, infertility, liver, cancer, diabetes and obesity.
TRICLOSAN: This chemical is the active ingredient in “antibacterial” products, is classified by the FDA as a pesticide, and has been linked with disrupting thyroid function and liver and inhalation toxicity,
GLYCOL: It’s a synthetic petrochemical mix which is known to cause allergic and toxic reactions. Has been linked to cancer, developmental/reproductive issues, neurotoxicity and endocrine disruption.
We have to remember that whatever we apply to our armpits is absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream within seconds. Typical brand name deodorants contain a stew of toxic chemicals, such as the above mentioned ingredients.
Picture this, you’re enjoying a hot steamy shower, your pores open up, you shave your armpits and when you climb out of the shower you put on your deodorant. To rub your deodorant under your arms is inviting the absorption of these harmful chemicals, which many believe will inevitably lead to many health problems, especially since our lympatic system is located so close to this area.

How long will the deodorant last?
A 4 oz bottle will last a couple of months.
How do I apply it?
Place a little bit on your fingers and rub onto your armpits. Apply as often as needed, but we only need to apply once per day. A little bit goes a long way. Bonus.
Do I need to refrigerate it?
Not necessarily, but it does contain coconut oil, which has a melting point of 24C or 76F Once the bottle reaches this temperature the contents can liquify, so store away from light and heat. You can also refrigerate the deodorant to bring it back to solid form; hot or cold application will not affect the properties or function of the deodorant. Some people prefer their deodorant to start out solid, so simply pop it into the fridge for 20 minutes for it to harden back up.
Will the deodorant stain my clothes?
No, it won’t rub off or stain your clothing. This deodorant is clean, with no white toxic residue.
Will this deodorant stop me from sweating?
There are two types of products, a deodorant that stops odor and an antiperspirant that reduces sweating. This is a deodorant which stops bacteria and odor. Sweat is a healthy physical response, helping the body remove toxins, fight infection and prevent overheating. When you eliminate this function of the body you can cause more harm than good. Not to mention Antiperspirants contain aluminum, and therefore you’ll want to consider ditching this product anyways.
