I absolutely LOVE the Vanilla-Mint scent (all natural) and the minty effect when I began to sweat. It was downright refreshing!
The one downside: there was nothing to soak up moisture (like Arrowroot Powder) so I did not stay as dry as I have with some other natural formulas. I am so glad that this arrived right before the cooler months so that it won't be an issue. It smells too good to waste!
Ingredients: Cocos Nucifera*, Maranta Arundinacea, Cera Alba*, Sodium Bicarbonate, Tocopherol, Vanilla Planifolia Essential Oil, Mentha Arvensis Essential Oil*, Mentha Spicita Essential Oil*, Melaleuca Alternifolia Essential Oil*
This is a relatively new addition to the Ursa Major line. This deodorant has a herbaceous-mint aroma is fresh, clean, and different than any other natural deodorant I've tried. I LOVE that it absorbs quickly and is amazingly light instead of heavy and sticky. A main ingredient of water-based, organic Aloe Very Leaf Juice means no need to wait before getting dressed to avoid staining. Yay! I love my coconut oil based deodorants but sometimes you just need to apply and GO.
Hoppin' Fresh goes on easily, spreads paper thin, and has a wonderful 'dry' feeling due to Kaolin Clay (absorbs moisture). If you are new to clean/natural deodorants and need a product that 'feels' like a conventional product (in a good way!) then this is for you!
Ingredients: *Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, Propanediol, Sodium Stearate, Tapioca Starch, Silica,Cellulose Gum, *Shea Butter, Sodium Benzoate, Kaolin Clay, Tocopheryl Acetate,Glyceryl Caprylate, Glyceryl Undecylenate, *Glycerin, Royal Jelly Extract, Hops,Lemon Peel Extract, Ginseng Root Extract, Calendula Extract, Chamomile Extract,Saccharomyces/Ferment, Rosemary Leaf Oil, Peppermint Essential Oil, Grapefruit Oil, Eucalyptus Leaf Oil
I absolutely love what Whole Body Apothecary stands for. Clean, organic, ethically sourced, transparent ingredients with no exceptions and nothing hidden. The same is true for their line of deodorants. A simple line up of tried and true ingredients gets straight to the point - smells good, keeps YOU smelling good, and no synthetic chemicals.
Stand out: Arrow Root Powder is the first ingredient (usually it is 2-4 ingredients in) so this is a great natural option if you are highly active (aka you sweat a lot). Arrow Root Powder absorbs the moisture rather than blocking your pores to prevent sweat (like aluminum) so it is a safe, clean option for moisture control.
Give it a go and let me know what you think!
Ingredients: *Arrow Root Powder, *Coconut Oil, Sodium Bicarbonate, *Sunflower Oil, *Bees Wax, *Shea Butter,*Essential Oils, Zinc Ricinoleate, Vitamin E
