Hey, friends! Have you tried natural deodorant yet? Do you know why people are using natural deodorant? Do you even know what natural deodorant is? These are all questions I found myself asking several years ago and you may be asking the same thing today!
Almost 2 years ago I went on a girls’ trip to San Clemente, CA. On that trip we started sharing our latest beauty products with each other, and to my surprise, multiple women were using natural deodorant! I felt so out of the loop because I had no idea what natural deodorant was or why one would even use it. So naturally, I started asking questions. Once I learned the benefits, I started experimenting with different natural deodorants to find the one that worked the best. It’s been a long process!
Today I am excited to be partnering with Kopari to introduce you my favorite aluminum free deodorant. I’m going to explain how it’s beneficial to your body, and why it’s the only natural deodorant that has worked for me. After all, sometimes #thetruthstinks about deodorant, but we can start making better choices for our bodies right now! So, let’s hit the ground running!
What is natural deodorant?
Natural deodorant means that it is aluminum and baking soda-free. Aluminum is found in most deodorants because it is the ingredient that keeps us from perspiring. While that may be nice for some of us, perspiring is our bodies natural way of getting rid of toxins.
Why use Coconut Oil Deodorant?
Kopari’s Coconut Oil Deoderant is 100% plant based and works with your body’s natural functions to reduce your odor. It’s clear, glides on smooth, and won’t stain your close. It also washes off easily and doesn’t clog up your razor; women, I know you hear me on this one. Another benefit I’ve found with Kopari’s Coconut Oil Deodorant is that it is so gentle on your skin. I typically break out in rashes with natural deodorant, but the combination of coconut water, coconut oil and sage oil actually seems to condition my under arms.
If you’re like me and you’re starting to switch over to using all natural products with natural ingredients, then you can rest assured that this product is perfect for you. Not only is it aluminum and baking soda-free, it’s paraben free, silicone free, and phthalate free. To learn even more, check out this video.
Does it work?
Yes! I will say though that not all natural deodorants are created equal. I have been trying every natural deodorant I can get my hands on since January 2017. Some worked for awhile, but the problems I kept running into were, they wouldn’t mask my body odor all day, I didn’t come in stick form, or I broke out in a rash. So as much as I wanted it to work, I just couldn’t find one that actually worked.
Then a month or so ago I started using Kopari’s Coconut Oil Deodorant. It’s aluminum and baking soda-free and smells so good! It comes in stick form and spreads on so smoothly. The thing that won me over though? It actually works. For me, the test is – can I go all day with only applying one time. And I totally can!
You guys, I am not lying that I can wear this all day and still smell good by the end of the night!
Let the detox begin!
I wish someone would have told me that there was a detox period when you switch from regular deodorant to aluminum-free deodorant. There is definitely a natural transition period and I thought I’d share that with you today so you start off with your best foot forward! So, here’s what to expect:
- Stage 1: “I’m sweaty and a little smelly.” Your pores are starting to detox and are somewhat plugged.
- Stage 2: “The funk is real.” Y our pits are in full purge mode. Just wash up buttercup!
- Stage 3: “Smelling better.” Babe, you got this. Keep up the detox, your pits are still purging.
- Stage 4: “Clean as a coconut.” Smelling fresh, sweating less. Detox finished.
