Since switching over to completely non-toxic makeup and skincare products one of the hardest things to find (mascara being second) is a natural deodorant that actually works. The chemicals that are in most deodorants are extremely harmful to our health and especially for women as it can severely mess with hormones. One thing everyone should be more careful with is deodorant as our under arms are so delicate and 60% of what we are putting on our skin is absorbed into our bloodstream. When you combine that with freshly shaved skin it makes it even easier to seep in there. It’s something to really think about and to take more seriously.
After having a reaction to what seems to be the baking soda in a deodorant cream I recently tried and fell in love with, I was feeling very discouraged. I mentioned my issue on twitter and I was recommended the Nourish organic deodorant which contains no baking soda and is 100% organic. I decided to check it out and I am very happy that I did!
Ingredients: Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut Oil), Organic Beeswax, Organic Zea Mays (Corn Starch), Organic Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa Seed Butter), Organic Butyrospermum (Shea Butter), Organic Saccharomyces Ferment, Organic Fragrance.
My Thoughts: I have to start off by saying that I love the smell of this. Of course it contains two of my very favorite scents, almond and vanilla. I find the scent to be extremely subtle and refreshing. Every now and then I will get a whiff of vanilla. The lasting power of this deodorant I think depends on the person wearing it. I do not sweat much at all but I did notice that by the end of the night that this starts to wear off a bit for me. I reapply it before bed and I am all set. This is a very impressive deodorant for being organic and completely non-toxic. I have to say that I would definitely recommend this to anyone out there looking for a good deodorant (natural or not). I will continue using this as my main deodorant and plan to try the other scents as well and I am also very intrigued by their body products!! I have a feeling I will be featuring more from Nourish on my blog in the future!
