Native Deodorant is “a deodorant that isn’t a chemistry experiment.” I was given the opportunity to try two of Native’s seasonal scents. Native is an all natural deodorant brand for men and women that contains only simple, all natural ingredients. These ingredients work together to naturally fight odors.
Native Deodorant is made in small batches in the United States. They never test on animals, “except humans.” Native Deodorant contains no aluminum or parabens. Why is this important? Native says “Aluminum is a toxin found in antiperspirants that is linked to breast cancer and Alzheimer’s. Parabens mimic estrogen and disrupt your hormonal balance.”
Native Deodorant is offering ten seasonal scents. They are: Coconut & Vanilla, Lavender & Rose, Grapefruit & Bergamot, Cucumber & Mint, Cotton & Lily, Eucalyptus & Mint, Citrus & Herbal Musk, Oakmoss & Basil Leaf, Tea Tree & Sage and Unscented. Natural Ingredients found in Native include: Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil, Beeswax, Baking Soda, Vitamin E, Vegetable Preservatives, Acidophilus, Coconut Oil, Dextrose, Probiotics, Castor Bean Oil, Stearyl Alcohol, Fractionated Coconut Oil and Arrowroot Powder.
I had the opportunity to try two scents. I picked Coconut & Vanilla (their most popular scent) and Cucumber & Mint. I tried Coconut & Vanilla first. It reminded me of a day at the beach. As nice as that is, I didn’t love it for my deodorant. Sun tan lotion smell makes me want to take a shower. Crazy? I moved on to Cucumber & Mint and loved the light fresh scent. That was the winner for me!
I’ve tried other natural deodorants. As an athlete, I can really work up a sweat. I was worried about how well it would hold up. I gave it a test with several long runs. Then, I used it before the Reebok Sweat Crawl with A Sweat Life. That was 4 half an hour workouts with runs in between on a warm summer day. I’m happy to say that the Native Cucumber & Mint was up for the challenge. It’s a winner.
