My friend Alisa has been trying to convince me to switch to natural deodorant for years. And for years, I have resisted despite the fact that I know that the aluminum in many deodorant brands has been linked to a host of illnesses, including breast cancer, because my only experiences with natural deodorants have been…shall we say, less than ideal. (OK, they were terrible. I have no idea how a deodorant can actually make you smell worse, but there you go.)
But I’ve been hearing about Native Deodorant for awhile now – it’s one of those cult items that everyone who’s into natural products is all aflutter about. I posted about it on Instagram, asking whether anyone had tried it, and was stunned by the outpouring of love for the brand. So I tried it myself, and now I get it. It just…works. It’s great. And I especially love that the scents are subtle and unisex; I like the idea that one brand can work for the entire family (not that I’d share my deodorant with a man, but that’s another story).
So we’ve established that Native Deodorant is phenomenal – you have to try it, for real – and now they’ve come out with a brand-new line of body washes and bar soaps. Like the deodorants, they’re simple, unisex, and formulated only with ingredients that you can pronounce (like shea butter and coconut oil) – zero phthalates, parabens, or sulfates. And they’re also just as fun and sudsy (read: effective) as brands with less of a focus on safe, natural ingredients.
(Ok, ok, Alisa: you were right. I WAS WRONG. …Happy??)
