Mommy Greenest Approved: Schmidt’s Natural Deodorant
With the temperature and sweat factor rising, it’s time to break out the big guns. But not antiperspirant! Those are typically chock full of toxic chemicals that some scientists believe are linked to breast cancer, not to mention parabens and phthalates, which mess up your hormones. I had been curious about Schmidt’s Natural Deodorant ever since I read the rave reviews: Everyone from Alicia Silverstone to my friend Sophie Uliano of Gorgeously Green claimed it keeps you drier than other natural deodorants. But could Schmidt’s really keep up with 100-degree weather? I planned on finding out—especially since I had just hooked up my Mommy Greenest friends (read: you) with a chance to win one of five free jars, plus 15% off.
My natural deodorant trial took place during a 100-degree desert weekend. With Schmidt’s Natural Deodorant, I felt completely comfortable—and smelled great! My natural deodorant trial took place on the hottest of hot weekends in Palm Springs, CA. Even after the sun went down, the temperature still topped 90 degrees. And although Schmidt’s Natural Deodorant didn’t keep my armpits bone dry—that would be just plain weird, considering how much the rest of my body was sweating—I felt completely comfortable in the extreme heat.
With its proprietary vegan blend of shea butter, baking soda, arrowroot powder, cocoa seed butter, vitamin E and hop extract—seriously, that’s the whole ingredient list, minus essential oils for scent—Schmidt’s Natural Deodorant controlled the wetness, and kept me smelling fabulous.
I was rocking the Lavender + Sage scent—as you may know, I am truly obsessed with lavender—but I’m dying to try some of the other flavors, like Cedarwood + Juniper, Ylang Ylang + Calendula, and Bergamot + Lime. They’ve also got a fragrance-free version, for those who are sensitive to them.
Want to try? You can get a jar for just $9 at the Schmidt’s Natural Deodorant online store and now through 6.1.14 use “MOMMY+SCHMIDTS” for a clean 15% off. Plus, enter to win one of FIVE jars we’re giving away this week.
Bring on the hot summer nights!
