In my search for an effective natural deal dorant" I tried just about every published formula from oils&butters (ick) mixed with Baking Soda (ouch) to just sodium stearate with propylene glycol (sticky) and everything in between. I disliked the oil slick and sticky mess that never delivered. No matter what magic essential oil blend or natural starch I still smelled not so pleasant, often worse than without anything at all. We can't have that. I must be able to raise my arms and wave Huzzah without worry.
So I dusted off my chemistry diploma, opened the biology texts and studied the science of pit sweat. Yes, I need a life.
Malodor is caused by normal bacteria multiplying out of control in your sensitive under arm area. Changing the pH of that underarm just enough to be inhospitable to the bacteria, while still remaining in a great range for normal healthy skin, is the key to preventing the problem.
After hundreds of hours of research, testing and non-clinicial trials I have FINALLY come up with a convenient soft stick formula that actually delivers. No Aluminum No Parabens. Just honest to goodness hypoallergenic freshness with ingredients that the EWG deems safe for the purpose.
The active ingredients include Magnesium, a natural and renewable earth element, Propanediol a renewable resource derived from US corn, and saccharomyces ferment, a natural yeast that underarm bacteria cannot thrive with. All of these lovelies are bound together with ECOCert emulsifiers, aloe and safe preservatives to help ensure that your natural stick is as fresh at the end as it is when you first open it.
This listing is for one full size Energy Citrus scent white oval twist tube containing 2.25 oz of FINALLY! deodorant. Tube dimensions vary, so the contents are measured by weight, not volume. The tube measures approximately (with cap): 2.25" x 4 11/16" tall.
Give it a shot in .5 oz trial size, or jump right on board with the full size (2.25 oz).
The .5 oz trial size is in an oval twist up tube. The 2.25 oz (measured by weight not volume) is in a white oval twist up tube.
