There’s no getting around the sweatiness of summer. Perspiration is just something we all have to deal with when the temperatures rise, and while it can be quelled with various antiperspirant products and procedures, often times this comes at a price. Taking a closer look at the ingredients in many of these products which we put in this sensitive area (full of glands and the lymph nodes that regulate our immune systems), can be quite alarming. The market is saturated with deodorants and antiperspirants that promise to keep you fresh or dry but are full of harsh chemicals that are absorbed directly into the body through our skin.
So how can we stay fresh without applying ingredients we can’t pronounce to our underarm areas? Natural deodorants like Pure Pitz answer this question by making a product with all natural ingredients available for those seeking an alternative to the harsh products often found in drug stores.
Pure Pitz is made with organic and naturally-preserved ingredients including jojoba oil, aluminum-free baking soda, beeswax, shea butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil, corn starch, vitamin E and other essential oils, and though it won’t keep you from sweating it will keep you smelling clean with its crisp, light, and all natural scent. Even the packaging is safe− a travel-friendly, BPA-free tube. This deodorant retails for $12-14, and while it’s slightly more costly than drug-store brands, we’d say that the price of smelling clean and chemical-free is worth it!
Other natural deodorants that we recommend include Sphatika’s Signature Deodorant ($38) and Terra Naturals Deodorant ($6).
