Should you switch to natural deodorant?
Don’t sweat it! (But let’s face it, we all do, and not just the small stuff!) We’ve all heard it before, but as it turns out, sweating is good for us. It’s that nasty by-product of sweating that is the real turn-off - STINK!!! But fear not, we’re here to help.
We all get stinky when we sweat a lot! Whether we are doing burpees at the local boot camp or chasing littles around the house. But many aspects of our daily lives, including what we ingest and chemicals in our environment can cause toxins to build up in our organs and tissues (ick!) One way our body eliminates these toxins is by sweating (remember, it’s GOOD for us!). Perspiring can facilitate proper immune function, which in turn, may help prevent certain diseases. But sweating can also sometimes cause our pits to emit some nasty funky stink. This malodorous ickiness is caused by an overgrowth of bad bacteria in our underarms. And what is the antidote for bad bacteria? Why, yes, yes it is GOOD Bacteria! Our bodies are covered with micro-flora all over our skin. As much as that sounds like a 90s horror flick, it is actually a wonderful, synergistic system that works well to keep the good stuff in, and the bad stuff out.
News flash: If you’re using a conventional, chemical-laden deodorant, you are most likely keeping the smell at bay, BUT (again the bad news)- you are not only killing bad bacteria, but you’re destroying all of that wonderful micro-flora on your skin that keeps the balance in check.
But wait! There’s more! Typical anti-perspirants also eliminate odor using harmful chemicals such as aluminum and parabens (along with some other nasty unpronounceable substances) which may contribute to the progression of certain diseases. Not a good cost-benefit ratio in our opinion.
The good news is that Noelle’s Naturals deodorant is free of aluminum, parabens, phthalates, GMOs and all those other scary and harmful substances (that, let’s face it, really only belong in the last round of a state-sponsored Spelling Bee!) Our deodorants stop the stink and help to subdue sweat without eliminating it. We do this with natural, clean, and NON-TOXIC ingredients that are safe and good for your body. Finally an natural deodorant that actually works without all the harmful junk! Our founder Noelle is so confident in the stink fighting powers of our deodorant that she has "sniff-my-pit guarantee." So far no one has taken her up on it but its a confident offer nonetheless! Give it a try and you'll be smelling just as fresh and feeling just as confident. :)
