Why I use Native Deodorant:
If you have been following along the last few weeks on my Instagram, @tallbondebell. I opened up about a health scare that made me switch to Native deodorant. I found a cyst in my armpit that I later found out by my doctor that was caused by my old antiperspirant. There have been recent studies that have shown that the aluminum and parabens found in anti-perspirants can be harmful to your body and can cause cysts. My doctor recommended me to switch to a clean deodorant.
After trying out various brands of clean deodorants I had no luck. I didn’t like the residue left on my clothes and I felt like they didn’t work. After asking around to friends who made the switch to an aluminum-free deodorant, all of them recommended Native deodorant.
Native Deodorant is both aluminum and paraben free. After almost a year of using Native deodorant, I have had zero issues of a gross residue and after going through a 2-4 week “detox” period, Native keeps my smelling fresh and protected from odors.
What is the “detox” period?
When you switch to any natural deodorant you go through a detox period the first few weeks. During this time your body is adjusting to working on its own vs having an anti-persperant work on its own. You are basically reteaching your body to sweat properly. During this period you made see a small increase in odor, but it is only temporary. What I did during this time is carry around a small container of perfume and would clean my armpits and reapply Native regularly. After my body adjusted, I have had zero issues with odor!
My favorite scents are the cucumber mint, coconut vanilla, and lavender and rose. I also carry their travel size deodorants for whenever I go on trips. I love how compact they are and they save me room!
I gradually want to start switching out my old products with natural alternatives. After seeing the positive results from Native’s deodorant, I want to now switch over to their body wash, bars of soap, and toothpaste too!
