Let’s talk about deodorant. Naturally Fresh Deodorant, to be specific. Everyone stinks sometimes, right? For the sake of those around us, we all do what we can to, well, NOT stink. I mean, who wants to stand in a crowded line at, say, the DMV (because that always takes hours!) surrounded by all sorts of different body odors? Maybe in the cavemen days, or before the invention of smell-good stuff, it was acceptable to walk around all ripe and nasty. In today’s polite society, though, not so much.
The problem with deodorant is that many of the regular brands are filled with chemicals and other junk that we really shouldn’t be rubbing on our skin. It can clog your pores, irritate your skin (especially after shaving!), and isn’t always all that fantastic for the environment. Naturally Fresh Deodorant, on the other hand, doesn’t do any of those things. It just keeps you fresh, naturally.
A More Convenient Deodorant Crystal
Naturally Fresh is best known for their deodorant crystal. If you’ve ever been to a natural beauty supply store, or perused the deodorant shelves closely at mass retailers, you may have noticed the cool little rock sitting there among the roll-on, sprays, and sticks. I never actually tried one, to be honest. I’m not sure why, I always wanted to. I guess I was worried about the convenience factor, since you have to wet the stone to use.
Naturally Fresh now comes in other forms aside from the crystal, including roll-on and spray. They still have the same basic principals of the crystal: they’re all-natural and eco-friendly. It’s just easier to toss them into your gym bag, overnight bag, or purse, and head out the door.
One of the things that I disliked most about traditional deodorant is that it burns like Hades when you put it on after shaving. I’m not a big fan of pain in general, but stinging pain is the worst to me. I’d rather be punched in the gut than stung by something! Naturally Fresh Roll-On Deodorant does not burn or sting at all. Not even a smidge. It works really well. At least I think so! I didn’t notice anyone moving away from me nonchalantly in a crowded room!
Controls odor without blocking sweat glands
So here’s the thing: your body NEEDS to sweat. It’s like a natural cleansing and cooling system. Blocking the sweat glands long term isn’t a good idea. Antiperspirants block your pores. Naturally Fresh Deodorant is NOT an antiperspirant. It allows your sweat glands to still do their job, it just makes sure you don’t have to deal with the stinky part of the process by neutralizing the bacteria that causes odor.
Buy Naturally Fresh: You can find the Naturally Fresh line of deodorant online, or at most Walmart stores, GNC stores, and health food stores. The best part is, they’re not expensive! The spray and the roll-on sell for $3.99. The Crystal, which lasts a lot longer, sells for about $7.
