What-you-should-know-about-natural-deodorant

Switching over to natural deodorant? Sam's got your back with everything you need to know about switching from a commercial deodorant and what to expect with a natural deodorant.

Our deodorant sticks last a very long time since a little goes a long way! Be sure to wash and dry your underarms thoroughly to wipe away any build-up or odor that has occurred. Next, only apply 1-2 light swipes. We know it’s tempting, but resist the urge to over apply. Over application is sometimes common with new customers and this could cause a minor rash due to the baking soda in our formula. If this happens, we recommend reducing your usage amount or discontinuing use. Unfortunately, some people may simply be sensitive to our ingredients and are unable to use our natural deodorants.

You may experience a brief transition period when you switch from a commercial deodorant to a natural deodorant. This has a lot to do with how our bodies react to changing things up so don’t throw in the towel just yet because this is actually a good thing. When you stop using products that clog your pores and stop your body’s natural cooling process, your pits will ditch the backlog of harsh chemicals. This may cause an increase in sweat, body odor, or sensitivity. Be patient, this transition is usually only a few days to a week and the payoff is well worth it.

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.

“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.

Your body is already a “clean” machine.

You’d think your sweat was a bad thing. What’s up with all those ads for products that promise a powder-puff future of sweat-free living? Walk into any drugstore, and you see antiperspirants lined up like soldiers ready to go to battle to save us from our own moisture. Personally, I like working up a little perspiration – it’s the sign of a hard day’s work or a great workout.
