What’s inside our Organic Deodorant Sticks ?

What’s inside our Organic Deodorant Sticks? How it works? Are all the ingredients safe and useful?

Some questions we’ve recently got and for which we decide to write this post within the “What’s inside?” blog section 😉

Ingredients details

All the 3 deodorants we propose have the same composition with the following ingredients:

Sodium Bicarbonate or Baking soda

A must have in all the houses. Baking soda catches bad odors without avoid your body to sweat (necessary to eliminate bad toxins).

Organic Arrow root

Arrow root absorbs moisture and leave your skin soft.

Organic Coconut oil

Coconut oil is a must have too, but here it’s for its anti-bacterial properties.

Organic Unrefined Shea Butter

Our Shea butter is organic and unrefined, wonderful ingredient that helps moistures after shaving 

Cera Bellina

Cera Bellina is derivative from Beeswax. It helps to spread the product on underarms.

Organic Cocoa Butter

Cocoa Butter is great to get product in solid forms. Plus here, it also moistures the underarms.

Glyceryl Stearate Citrate

Anionic, natural and palm-free emulsifier based on rapeseed (canola) oil.

Organic Essential oils

For 2 of our 3 solid deodorants, we add drops of essential oils. Essential oils offer smells and the ones we’ve selected have an action of catching bad odors. Here what we propose for each deodorant:

  • Woodsy Deodorant : Organic Essential oils of Cedarwood and Vetiver.
  • Flowery Deodorant: Organic Essential oils of Palmarosa and Sclary sage.
  • Neutral Deodorant: no essential oils as this deodorant has been formulated for pregnant/breastfeeding women, people allergic to limonene (essential oils component) and people who prefers neutral odors 😉

And that’s it!

Is there a difference between Deodorant and Anti-perspirant?

Yes there is! The first one will let your body sweaty and elimate the bad toxins.

While the second will block the sweat and so the bad toxins inside your body.

Deodorant catches only bad odors (which is in fact the main issue) but will not stop your body doing its job.

Anti-perspirant are really dangerous for your health and we advice you to avoid them as much as possible.

A word about the packaging

All our deodorant come in biodegradable/compostable kraft paper tube printed with soy ink.

For hygienic reason and because we sell online, we do not propose product packaging-free.

What’s not inside?

We all know that the main deodorants and anti perspirant products sold on the market contain controversial ingredients, some of them have been highlighted as responsible for the increase of breast cancer…

In our solid deodorants, you will not find them:

  • Aluminum: forbidden in our food, we find it in anti perspirant deodorants, entering our body to stop sweat and control the bad toxins, but also having damages in our health
  • Parabens
  • Alcohol
  • Mineral oil

Plus, market deodorants and anti perspirants are sold in non recyclable packaging. Spray are even dangerous as they can burst into flames!
