Probiotic Deodorant, finally a natural deodorant that actually works and works better than chemical deodorant.
The theory behind Probiotic Deodorant is that it works to increase the good bacteria, just like probiotics do for tummies. Increasing the good bacteria fights the bad smelly bacteria, you are working with your body, not against it. Contained in each deodorant is a good dose of high quality, shelf-stable, probiotic.
The Deo also has Virgin Organic Coconut Oil and Organic Baking Soda which are both anti-bacterial. Triple whammy!
The other ingredients are Organic Shea butter, Organic Cocoa Butter, Organic Beeswax and Organic Tapioca Flour, they play an important role, in helping it be the fantastic hard (but not too hard) consistency to make the deo work as a stick.
The jar is a slightly softer version.
Essential Oils: Ylang Ylang & Neroli. Which are renowned for aphrodisiac qualities.
The Cardboard is a push-up tube (it can be a little tricky to push up for a start, may need to warm it in hands and careful not to push it up too far as it cant go back down but worth those wee quirks for the sake of the earth :)
Refills are made to order so order may be delayed.
The first few days I used this product there was still odor so I have been supplementing with regular deodorant for days that I work hoping there will be an improvement over time.
I have also found the stick doesn't soften up very quickly (maybe it's designed for North Island climate?) but if I have the time to hold it against the skin for a few minutes then can gently rotate it to apply which seems to be working.
I am still persisting with it as I love the idea of a probiotic deodorant with eco-friendly packaging.
I've been using these deodorants a while now. They often are hard to move up the cardboard tube. This one was uneven at its base, which proved even more difficult. Thought it might be easier in this warmer time of year, but wasn't. However, love this and the 'don't worry be happy hippie' scents.
Sadly I think the deodorant is wrongly labeled. The fragrance is totally different to the one I normally purchase. Unless you have changed the recipe?
