Natural deodorant can be a difficult green beauty item to nail down. Everybody has different levels of stink, sweat, and body chemistry, so it’s not surprising that what works for some may not work for others.
I’m lucky in the fact that most natural deodorants work well for me (with the exception), but it’s a bit of an adjustment moving from conventional deodorant to a natural alternative.
Green Frog Naturals reached out to me and offered a sample of their lovely deodorant stick and I was happy to put it to the test.
Green Frog Naturals was created by two sisters after they discovered what’s been lurking in their conventional deodorant. They wanted to create something natural, made without parabens, aluminum and other harsh chemicals.
After much trial and error, the two created a beautiful lineup of deodorants in three scents. They first created a deodorant paste, then later a deodorant stick, which is what they sent me.
Their deodorants come in three lovely scents: Lavender & Tea Tree, Lemongrass & Lime, and Cyprus, Juniper & Patchouli.
They’ve created three strengths to suit each person’s specific need.
The regular strength suits most people and is a great starting point if you’re new to natural deodorant (what I used). Some people have more sensitive arm pits, so they’ve made a sensitive formula for those.
And some people may need a stronger deodorant, so there is an extra-strength for them too.
Lavender & Tea Tree Natural Deodorant
What I really love about this deodorant is that a little goes a long way. You only need one or two swipes in the pits to get enough.
I noticed on days that I didn’t do excessive sweating (ie. most days) one application in the morning was enough to last the day. But on days that I did more strenuous activities that made me sweat (ie. walking in the heat or doing a workout) I usually had to apply a second coat to get through the day.
This is fairly common with most natural deodorant because they are not antiperspirants. This is not a bad thing!
When you sweat, you rid your body of toxins. Antiperspirants decrease the amount you sweat, therefore, decreasing the amount of toxins you are able to release.
Instead of blocking your sweat glands, Green Frog Naturals uses Arrowroot Starch to absorb moisture.
In an attempt to decrease the odor of our pits, they have used ingredients like baking soda and bentonite clay in their formula. This absorbs odors and helps with the stinky pit situation.
The regular strength deodorant works great for me on a typical day, but on days that I sweat more than usual, I think the extra-strength would be best.
But like I said, each person’s body chemistry is different, and many people have found the regular strength works great for them.
Regardless, I’m happy to add this lovely-smelling natural deodorant to my beauty routine! Supporting natural brands that are making a difference in the beauty community is what I love!
