A few years ago I became aware of the toxins in my deodorant and the harm they can do to my body. I decided to find a natural deodorant that worked just as well as over-the-counter ones. Easier said than done.
My Search For The Best
I tried several “natural organic” deodorants from a health food store. None of them worked. I went online and researched natural deodorant. One stick I tried wasn’t half bad, but I still found myself wet by the end of the day, and I didn’t care for the way the stick smelled. I ended up giving this deodorant to my pre-teen son who says it works fine for him. Many people have similar complaints about the natural options out there. They either don’t work, or they work alright, but smell weird.
An Amazing Charcoal Deodorant: Piperwai
Since everyone’s bodies are different, what works for one person might not work for another. Keeping that in mind, I want to tell you about Piperwai, an amazing natural deodorant that actually works, and smells great. I love it!
I stumbled upon their website, Piperwai.com during one of my searches, and promptly ordered myself a jar. It is a charcoal deodorant that works entirely naturally. According to their website:
“PiperWai is a natural deodorant made without harmful ingredients like parabens, aluminum, and synthetic fragrances. This charcoal deodorant, with its crème texture, is 100% natural and forms an invisible, absorbent, pH-balanced shield on your underarms that neutralizes odor and protects your clothes from perspiration. And it’s perfect for use on sensitive skin.”
From my experience, this is true. I really do stay dry for up to 12 hours, and stink-free. On hot summer days, I might feel a little dampness or sometimes a slight smell. I reapply a small pea size amount (scoop it up with my fingers) and I’m good to go.
They now offer it in a stick, as well as a jar. I’ve haven’t tried the stick yet, but I can see it being a nice option for travel or the gym. A 2oz. jar costs $11.99. But if you like it and sign up for a reccurring subscription, you save 10% and get it for $10.79 each. I love that I don’t have to think about it.
I encourage you to check out their website and order a jar for yourself. The best thing you can do for your body is to keep it free from toxins. This can be hard to do in our world today, so whenever you get a chance, try something natural.
