It’s so important to me to switch to more natural products when it comes to my beauty routine. It started with skincare, then makeup, and eventually things like toothpaste and deodorant. For me it isn’t just a matter or avoiding toxic ingredients, which is very important! Personally, it’s also about comfort. The more natural products I use, for example, the fewer nasal allergies and eye allergies I have to deal with.
I’ve tried several natural deodorants this year, and my recent fave is by Cris’s Blends. They believe that skin matters and that what we put on it makes a difference. The natural skin care at Cris’s Blends is crafted with 100% organic high quality botanicals - herbs, extracts, and oils that are packed with vitamins and minerals that nourish the skin.
Equally important is what they don’t put in their products. At Cris’s Blends, they don't use synthetic ingredients, artificial fragrances, toxic preservatives, or GMO's
in any of their products. Every product is aluminum, paraben, and phthalate free. Natural ingredients like arrowroot powder help control moisture, while baking soda controls odor.
The natural deodorants are scented with essential oils like lavender, geranium, and ylang ylang. I love each one of their scents, especially the Lavender Deodorant. For an herbal and almost exotic scent that is gender neutral, try the Basil & Cypress Deodorant. Unlike most sensitive-skin deodorants, the Cris’s Blends Deodorant for Sensitive Skin is scented with a blend of essential oils. It has a refreshing crisp fragrance that is also gender neutral. For men, they have an earthy masculine scented Charcoal and Patchouli Deodorant.
I really like that these natural deodorants come in traditional deodorant sticks with easy application. Though we should all be more eco-conscious when it comes to beauty packaging. The Cris’s Blends natural deodorants are also available in zero-waste paper tube packaging.
