you guys, so it’s true. . .i am a tad crunchy but hear me out! so you know how there’s this thing about antiperspirants and possible incidence of breast cancer?
i’m not totally convinced due to inconclusive research BUT i’m also not taking any chances. pair that with the prospect of potential hormone disregulation and i am already three steps into DIY’ing my own batch of anti-funk to keep my pits smelling fresh. enter in my own mini-experiment which had more fails than success.
i am a sweater…not the knitwear but a person who sweats. mostly during exercise, but also in a stressful situation so i obviously want to use a product that works! i’ve tried tom’s of maine, alba botanica, the thai rock crystal and most recently the roll-on version of crystal deodorant.
first a thank you for everyone that has put up with my funky freshness during this period of adjusting/testing. i’m sure it was not the most pleasant scent ;p but i bring good news!
life changing. deodorant cream by soapwallakitchen! i had my doubts and honestly never really thought a cream would work. the ingredient list certainly is full of anti-microbial essential oils so i thought i’d give it a try! after all, it is the bacteria that causes the smell, not the actual dampness.
you simply apply it to your under arms like a moisturizer gently rubbing it in et voila! stink no more. i made it through the day without having to reapply! the best parts being it’s effectiveness and secondly the gentle ingredients: Organic Simmondsia chinensis (Jojoba) Oil; Organic Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Oil; Organic Rosehip Seed Oil; Butyrospermun parkii (Shea) Butter; Organic Corn Starch; Sodium Bicarbonate; Kaolin Clay; Organic Vegan Kosher Glycerin; Essential oils of: Organic Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender); Organic Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree); Organic Citrus Sinensis (Sweet Orange); Organic Mentha Piperita (Peppermint); Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergaptene-free Bergamot).
