A Natural Deodorant That Actually Lasts All Day!

It’s been about 9 years since I last used antiperspirant deodorant.  When I started learning about the toxins in personal care products and read about the neurotoxin, aluminum, being in antiperspirants, my aluminum-filled deodorant was one of the first things to go in the trash.  For all of the years since then I’ve used natural deodorants.  With most of these natural deodorants, I would have to re-apply them a couple times throughout the day.  They just didn’t keep me fresh and sweet-smelling with one application in the morning.  I was willing to do this in order to be healthier, and I did not prefer to use an underarm toxin that could contribute to cancer or neurological disorders.

So I got used to applying natural deodorants twice a day.  I gave up on the idea that I could find a natural deodorant that really lasted all day.

Until I tried Sugar & Spice created by Beeyoutiful.  Even on the hottest, most humid days of summer {and it gets pretty humid here in Missouri}, I only have to apply this deodorant once.  

And the ingredients?  

They are absolutely 100% safe with no additives.  In fact, Beeyoutiful is a full-disclosure company, which means they will not put a dab of anything in their products without putting it on the label. {The FDA allows a company to put a certain amount of additives in products without having to disclose them.  Most companies take advantage of this.}  

Here are the ingredients in their 3 scents:

 Men’s Deodorant – Spiced Woodlands

coconut oil, beeswax, arrowroot powder, baking soda, vitamin e oil, castor oil, cedar wood essential oil, fir needle essential oil, bitter orange essential oil, sage essential oil
Women’s Deodorant – Sugar & Spice

coconut oil, beeswax, arrowroot powder, baking soda, castor oil, vitamin e oil, benzion resin essential oil, fir essential oil, clove essential oil

Women’s Deodorant – Flower Fields

coconut oil, beeswax, arrowroot powder, baking soda, castor oil, vitamin e oil, lavender essential oil, geranium essential oil

This deodorant is not completely clear so it can leave a residue on the underarms of lighter colored clothing, but this washes out with a bit of scrubbing.

If you have been using antiperspirants for a long time, your body will likely go through a detoxification process for a little while when you switch to a natural deodorant.  The degree of this depends on how well you eat, how many toxins your body carries, and your genetic makeup.  To help rid your body of unhealthy toxins, detox with refreshing bentonite clay baths!

    I’m wondering what the detoxification process entails. I am trying to provide more natural alternatives for my family, and I was just curious. Thanks!

      Sweating is one way our body gets rid of the toxins in our system. Antiperspirants keep us from sweating and hold the toxins in, plus add more into the body. When you use a natural deodorant, it allows your body to get rid of toxins that were caused and trapped by the antiperspirant deodorant. Its ideal to find a deodorant that keeps you fresh smelling without causing a more toxic body. Thanks for the question! :)

        What do you mean your body will detoxify?
        To piggy back the question about detoxifying while pregnant, what about when nursing. If I switch to a natural deodorant is that a problem?

          It’s not good to detoxify while nursing either. When you do a detox it removes toxins from your bloodstream which can be transferred to the baby or breastmilk. But switching deodorants will not take toxins from the bloodstream, it will allow your underarms to sweat like the rest of your body does and will get rid of the toxins through sweat. This does not go to the baby or breastmilk. Sweating is God’s natural way for us to detox. Antiperspirants prevent this natural detoxing. If I were pregnant or nursing, I would definitely switch to a natural deodorant so the baby is not at all affected by the chemicals in antiperspirants. Thanks Cindy!
