This strong deodorant formula will keep odor at bay for anyone. Like many natural deodorants it includes baking soda which absorbs and eliminates odor extremely reliably. Due to many reports we've seen of people reporting irritation from some baking soda deodorants we worked with our recipe to create a more balanced, skin-friendly formula so even sensitive skin types could enjoy strong odor protection. There is about half the baking soda as in other products, which is less problematic for your skin's natural Ph levels, yet we've retained all the efficacy.
We have made a slight ingredient change due to our previous zinc oxide supplier no longer having material to sell to us. The formula now includes zinc ricinoleate, which is a molecule made from zinc and ricinoleic acid, a major fatty acid of castor oil. This compound has odor absorbing properties - it surrounds and entraps scents, making it a great helper to the rest of the recipe. Because the zinc oxide is eliminated the stick now has a more off-white, creamy color to it.
Sweat and odor absorbing powders help top off our new solid, unscented deodorant recipe. Bentonite clay has a cleansing property for the body and Diatomaceous Earth and Organic Arrowroot Powder absorb some sweat. This is an aluminum free deodorant, making it a safe and healthy choice for you and your family.
As some people have allergies to essential oils this is a totally unscented deodorant formula. When we say unscented we mean it - this literally has no smell at all. You can layer it with your favorite natural perfume if you like and not worry about it competing or just smell like your clean self. Mango butter and the other base oils used are also hypoallergenic for most people, making this an extremely mild and widely applicable recipe.
This formula took many months in development as we tried to create the ideal combination of strong odor protection and mildness on skin. We tested many versions and this one spreads beautifully on skin in the perfect layer - not too thick or thin - and does the job just right. The stick format allows you to apply it without fingers which some folks very much prefer.
