I have really been trying to be more mindful of the beauty/skincare/home products I use. Now. more than ever, brands are making an effort to be more clean.
What is clean beauty?
There are obviously many answers to this question, but they all have (or should have) the same basis. Clean beauty is products that are manually created and produced without any toxic ingredients. I have always been a supporter of cruelty-free products and I’m happy to say there are more than ever!
I had heard about clean deodorant for awhile before I finally took the leap to try it myself. I was kind of under the impression that it wouldn’t work as well because well, it didn’t have all those ingredients in it. LOL I’m happy to say I was wrong! I’ve tested out 3 different brands and want to share my thoughts on each with you.
I love Kopari products. You may have heard me mention before that my skin is DRY. Even now in the summer. So coconut oil is my best friend. I have tried several other Kopari products, and finally decided to try the deodorant. I actually got it from a company called Sand Cloud, which is a wonderful organization dedicated to saving marine life.
The deodorant still comes in stick form, but is more oil based. It smells like you just came home from the beach! The coconut smell is not overpowering at all. It glides on very smooth and makes your underarm area smooth as well. I have noticed an improvement since I started using clean deodorants, especially when shaving. This product is aluminum free.
Origins is a brand that has been around for many years. They pride themselves on using natural and non-toxic ingredients in all their products. No Offense deodorant is alcohol and aluminum free. It has a wonderful fresh & clean scent. This can definitely be used by both men and women. The protection lasts all day and I think the scent actually gets better the longer you wear it! This is my new go-to for every day deodorant.
The great thing about Native is you can find it at Target! LOL It is the most like deodorants we are used to. It comes in a stick form and several amazing scents. It gave me great protection throughout the day. Native carries products for men, women and teens. I love their tagline: “Take care of your body. Its the only place you have to live.”
Native was founded in San Francisco and prides themselves on never using aluminum, parabens or sulfates in their products. Oh and they always offer free shipping! How cool is that?
I hope this information was helpful and you will give one of these clean deodorants a try! I honestly don’t think you will regret it.
