Yeahhhhh, I know it’s weird to talk about deodorant, but deodorant is kinda important. Don’t worry I am going to keep this short and sweet.
Chemicals and toxins are everywhere, but there are lots of companies that like sneaking them into skin care and beauty products. I need to get better about reading labels on these items like I am with food products. I am pretty diligent when it comes to the food I put in my body, but don’t know where to start when it comes to skin care.
If you have been reading this blog for a little while then you may have learned that I have hypothyroidism aka my thyroid is really lazy and it causes me problems. The spectrum of thyroid function is huge and every person has unique needs to function at what they consider normal. Stress plays a huge role in the management of my symptoms as well as working to eliminate other hormone disruptors. Since being diagnosed I overhauled my diet and have removed fluoride from my toothpaste because it is linked to be a hormone disruptor. That just basically means that it interferes with my body’s ability to self regulate. A currently popular example of a hormone disruptor would be BPA. You know that stuff primarily found in plastic. I wish I could say that I’ve worked to remove other hormone disruptors from my daily life, but the truth is I haven’t.
This is where the all-natural toxin free Zak Detox Deodorant comes in. Here’s a little bit more about the product.
Zak Detox is packed with all-natural ingredients that gently yet effectively protect and nourish your skin. This formula powerfully combines coconut oil, shea butter, aloe vera, essential oils, and mineral earth to keep you feeling fresh and protected all day long. It is also the perfect deodorant for sensitive skin! To give you better options, this Zak Detox comes in Perfectly Unscented, Elevate and Energize fragrances – each formulated to match your preference and lifestyle.
I was a little hesitant to try out this deodorant. I wasn’t worried about the ingredients, but more about the effectiveness. I am happy to report that I have been surprised by the effectiveness of this all natural stuff!
I really shouldn’t have doubted this at all because as we all know coconut oil is great for basically everything and there’s coconut oil in the formula! I have worked out, went to work, experienced stress and went about my day to day activities while wearing this deodorant. It has protected my under arms and kept me smelling fresh. I was provided the Elevate scent and really enjoy the fragrance. It’s light and not overpowering but still has a clean scent.
The consistency of the product was something else I thought might bother me, but I quickly got over it. The texture is a little more sticky than your average drugstore variety, but not so sticky that I noticed it while wearing my everyday clothes.
The fact that this stuff is paraben and aluminum free rocks! There are so many chemicals around us and we don’t often think about things like deodorant but we really should. After all, the pores of our under arms are so close to some of our lymph nodes.
I have been really impressed with this stuff and plan to continue using it. I may not be able to eliminate every chemical or toxin from my environmental, but I can work to control the items I can.
