It’s safe to say that the majority of the world uses deodorants and antiperspirants to control under arm odor and perspiration. After all, no one wants to stink, right? But with this fact comes one big issue: the lack of understanding when it comes to the differing functions of deodorants and antiperspirants, and the use of these words interchangeably.

Do Men's Natural Deodorants Really Work?

Have you ever broken down the word antiperspirant? By definition, anti means ‘against’ and perspirant, or perspire, means ‘to give out sweat through the pores of the skin.’ This means that deodorant products labeled as antiperspirants are fighting against your body’s sweating process and, in fact, are quite literally blocking it from occurring.

Exactly how are these products stopping my sweat in its tracks, you may ask? One of the primary active ingredients in most commercial antiperspirants is aluminum, or more specifically, aluminum salts. These salts work to block the sweat ducts and reduce the amount of sweat that reaches the skin’s surface. Even though the sweat is blocked from leaving the pores, it still continues to be produced under the skin, which can potentially lead to blocked hair follicles and cysts through consistent use.

Deodorant Stains: Prevention & Removing

Stains. We’ve all been there, done that. We’ve all dribbled a sip of our morning coffee down the front of our dress shirts, dropped a French fry drenched in ketchup on our laps, and yellowed the pits of our light-colored shirts from a combination of deodorant and sweating throughout the day. While the former two scenarios are simply unfortunate accidents that might result in having to go new clothes shopping, deodorant stains are generally avoidable and should never have to be on your list of things to worry about. In fact, the majority of our customers never even encounter the issue, but it never hurts to practice prevention too!

So, what tricks can you keep up your sleeve to make sure your favorite shirt never suffers from those dreaded pit paintings?

Sam’s Natural DEO: It Works!

It Works!

One of the things we often hear from people who haven’t tried our natural deodorant is “I’ve heard natural deodorants don’t really work, they don’t last, they don’t help with sweat, they don’t make you feel confidently protected.” We started Sam’s knowing that we needed to shatter the misconceptions surrounding natural products and natural deodorant in particular. We needed to provide a healthy and safe alternative to commercial deodorants and antiperspirants with effectiveness as our number one priority, and that’s exactly what we did.

Maintaining a Man: How to Care for your Burly Beard

As men, we understand how much time and patience it takes to go from a little bit of scruff to a bold beard, and some of us have trouble even leaving the patchy stubble phase. Sure, it may be frustrating, the process is literally like watching hair grow (pun intended), but once you’ve finally grown out your preferred beard length, you feel like a whole new man.

Being Irresistible

There’s Chemistry Behind Attraction

What’s up with Marc? His stories are legendary, and he gets everyone laughing. He picks up a guitar and pulls it off like he’s Ed Sheeran’s better-looking brother. Marc not only shoots a game of pool like a pro, he volunteers at an animal shelter and dominates in pick-up basketball. The dude just loves life, and he smells good – like, really good. It’s not that in-your-face, try-too-hard cologne smell some guys reek of, but you could swear he just naturally smells like aged leather and cedar. Damn.

How Environmental Good Has Become the New Business Mantra (and why that’s a very good thing)

“Doing good” used to be a concept relegated to nonprofits and volunteers. Companies were proudly in the business of making money. In the 1980s movie Wall Street, Gordon Gekko summed it up this way, “Greed for lack of a better word, is good.”

But nothing exists in a vacuum. If the last few decades have taught us anything, it is that we live in an interconnected and interdependent world. Making money can’t be the only focus. We have to think about how we go about it, especially when it comes to the planet we all share.
