Wait, what? A deodorant without aluminum that actually works all day? Yes! It’s true, I found one. Really!
I have used many natural deodorants on and off for the last two decades. The “off” time was because I have aways been disappointed by their effectiveness, or should I say, lack of effectiveness. Finally I came across a product that actually delivers.
For my day job I am a Woman’s Activewear Buyer (I know, total dream job). Back in the winter I traveled to Salt Lake City for the Outdoor Retailer Trade Show where I attend some buying appointments with my brands and walk around the showroom floor to see what is new and trending up.
I came to a small booth selling 100% natural and organic products. If you know me at all, you know this is my jam. I stopped to talk to them, curious to learn about their products. The company is called Green Goo, and the owner is a wife and mother (total Lady Boss Entrepreneur) whose passion is to create products that won’t harm people or the planet. Green Goo makes skin salve, soaps, first aid products, but what I found to be my favorite is their natural deodorant.
A staff member at the booth gave me a sample to try because I was interested in bringing in a line like this, but wanted to try it out myself first. The formula is basically shea butter and baking soda, practically edible, so I was slightly skeptical at first, but my skepticism turned to amazement at how well it worked.
When I got back to my store, I ordered a couple dozen to try on the sales floor and have not been able to keep them in stock, both the staff and customers have been very happy with it. The scents are super yummy too, Lavender Thyme, Rose Geranium, Lemongrass Sage,and Unscented. I can’t decide if I like the Lavender or Rose better. My daughter likes the Lemongrass.
The retail price is $7.95 which is more than bargain. You know I advocate for doing something Luxe everyday, maybe today the self love you will show yourself is try a gentle, safe, effective deodorant!
