Two more reasons to switch to natural deodorant: An Italian study recently published in the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry found that breast cancer patients demonstrated higher levels of aluminum; a 2012 study out of Switzerland concluded, “Our observations do not formally identify aluminium as a breast carcinogen, but challenge the safety ascribed to its widespread use in underarm cosmetics.” And although the National Cancer Institute is “not aware of any conclusive evidence linking the use of underarm antiperspirants or deodorants and the subsequent development of breast cancer, public opinion begs to differ: Search “natural deodorant” on Amazon and you get more than five thousand products.
We’re gaining on you, aluminum.
But then there’s that nagging little question of efficacy. I’ve written about the natural-deodorant-unless-it’s-an-important-day trend—lived it, in fact, until I discovered the trick to making natural deodorants work.
But now, I may have discovered a natural deodorant is so strong, so foolproof that you can actually put it on in the morning and go all day without stinkiness. Yes, really.
So pure you could actually eat it—try saying that about Secret—this natural deodorant is so strong that you can go all day without stinkiness. Yes, really.
So natural you could actually eat it (try saying that about your Secret), Primal Pit Paste is made from organic coconut oil, shea butter, baking soda, arrowroot powder and natural fragrances derived from essential oils. And about those fragrances: They smell absolutely amazing, but the scent sort of evaporates once you wear it for a minute, so it won’t compete with whatever other scent you put on your body.
But here’s the thing about paste deodorants: For the squeamish, it can be a little weird scooping up that pea-sized amount and rubbing it into your armpits, no matter how fresh-out-of-the-shower clean said armpits might be. So Primal Pit Paste mixed in a little organic beeswax to create a stick, which works great, too. And they just launched a PoPo Powder for athletes, plus Pucker Paste and Body Whip for hydration from head to toe.
