I have also been experimenting with deodorants. I tried three different recipes. Two were solid bars and one was a cream. And the overwhelming favorite of everyone who tested it was the cream/paste. And I’m in totally agreement there.
- It’s a deodorant, not an antiperspirant. I do still sweat some, but I don’t smell. Even when I work out.
- It’s not sticky or clumpy and it doesn’t leave a residue.
- I actually found I didn’t mind the cream. I know most people cringe when they hear they have to apply it with their finger…but really I actually kind of liked it over the stick. And if you think about it, we use our hands to apply every other product to our body.
I’ve gotten a lot of good feedback on it too:
Worked all day. It smells a tad strong but I like the consistency. – Shielagh
I preferred test sample #3. I didn’t mind it being in a jar. I actually preferred the jar over the tube, because I noticed I didn’t use as much. I liked the light fluffy feeling of the deodorant. It did burn, but only a mild burn more like a tingling. I did use it right after shaving. Even after sweating a lot after a workout I didn’t smell and I didn’t feel sticky. There was no residue on my clothing either. – Jessica
I’m super excited about this. I did have a mild burning sensation when I used it right after shaving. Which is probably my only complaint about the deodorant, but I also have super sensitive skin. I actually was able to kind of work around it too by shaving at night. Then by the time I used it in the morning I didn’t have that problem. All in all I’m really excited about the deodorant. I now have an all natural deodorant! Which was the last item I really needed to add to my skin care to completely switch over from store bought/chemical products.
I’m still having more people test it. I want to see what people think over a long span of time, but I’m hoping that I can add it to my product line sometimes this year.
