From eating organic veggies to using essential oils, you are always moving closer to true clean living. But you could be overlooking a stinker of a toxin that you put on your skin every day … it’s your deodorant.
The Other Guys.
The synthetic ingredients in both antiperspirant and deodorant cause annoying and embarrassing itching problems for many people. It’s no surprise that it irritates … manufactured deodorants are full of chemical ingredients – aluminum, triclosan, phthalates, paraben – can, in fact, fill your pores and mess with the natural biome of your skin … knocking out healthy bacteria that – ironically – make your body odor worse and cause irritation.
Okay … but giving up your deodorant altogether may seem practically challenging … otherwise, you would have done it already. But it doesn’t have to be. There are better, natural options for daily underarm hygiene. This is where our Natural Base Deodorant comes in. We’ve created a remarkable natural product that solves the stickiest deodorant problems with completely natural ingredients.
Time to Sweat.
The first thing to understand is that despite what your middle school PE teacher told you, sweat itself does not actually stink. It’s the bacteria feeding on the sweat in your underarms that produces the less-than-pleasant body odor you experience after a long day of hard work. But traditional antiperspirants and deodorants don’t even address the problem of bacteria. Instead, they use an aluminum-based compound to literally plug your pores so the sweat can’t exit your skin. Sweating is a normal function of the body – it helps us cool down, signals our emotions and even helps fight infections. Manufactured antiperspirants block this basic function.
The real solution for natural deodorant is found by addressing the balance of bacteria in your underarms … no offense, we all have it. We went straight to the source with this unique blend of probiotics to support a healthy and balanced level of bacteria on your skin … one that won’t produce an excess amount of stink. It’s a win-win for you and the health of your skin.
It’s the perfect solution that gives you a healthy, clean-living way to deal with daily hygiene while giving you maximum flexibility on the kind of constituents you want to put on your skin. Natural Base is built on the idea that natural probiotics can actually help to balance bacteria, rather than throwing it further out of whack. We’ve combined it with natural arrowroot powder to help absorb moisture in a skin-safe base of apricot kernel oil that doesn’t leave that oily residue that some natural deodorants have.
Keep in Mind…
Your body may need a short adjustment once you make the switch to this all-natural product … a detox, some call it. You may notice an increase in sweat or a certain aroma while your skin biome recovers to its normal balance. Once you correct the bacterial imbalances in your armpits, your sweat should not smell particularly unpleasant and your underarm wetness will actually decrease!
Also note that although the Natural Base container may seem smaller than your typical retail product, you won’t believe how long this little container lasts. Typically anywhere between 1-2 months depending on how often you use it. It’s a soft solid that you apply with your fingers. If it gets too soft, it’s an easy fix to place the container in a cool place, such as your refrigerator, for a short time until it regains the texture you prefer.
Plus …(and this is the exciting part), we’ve left the big decisions up to you. This unscented base is specially designed so that you can add your favorite essential oils to get exactly the natural benefits and the aroma that you want. All you have to do is add 2-3 drops of your favorite essential oil singles or blends to the top layer of the Natural Base Deodorant, easily blend with your fingertip, and then apply. If you notice your aroma fading from the deodorant, you can continue to use the same oil or it’s the perfect time to mix it up and try a new aroma.
