The Dirt: Native Deoderant

I couldn't preach what I preach and not practice it. For example, I recently started switching all of my products to cleaner, safer versions. This means safer cleaning products, make-up, shampoo and conditioner, lotions, soaps, food... the list goes on! And since we are moving, there has been no better time than now to PURGE everything chemical-ridden and start fresh.

In order to decide which products I want to switch first I am using the Think Dirty app, and anything with a rating higher than 3 I am tossing out IMMEDIATELY and replacing with a product with healthier, cleaner ingredients. As I have been scanning barcodes to see how my current products hold up, it was refreshing to see some of the products I am already using AND LOVE pass the "under 3" test! But still my goal is to get all of my products as close to 0 as possible.

As I switch new products I will be posting their Think Dirty rating to save you time! The first product I am switch is my deodorant! The Lady SpeedStick I was using for YEARS (cringe!) has been rated 9. It contains carcinogens and ingredients which cause development and reproductive problems. Anti-perspirant contains aluminum which stops you from sweating, and I believe mother nature intended for us to sweat for a reason...

I recently switched to Native deodorant (Lavender and Rose scent! Yum!) and I haven't really noticed a difference from antiperspirant. I don't stink and I don't feel overly sweaty (other than the usual perspiration during my morning workouts). It is not yet rated on Think Dirty but I anticipate they will be adding this product soon. I am a heavy sweater and I had tried MANY other natural deodorants brands before giving in and ordering Native - it annoyed me that I could only get it online. But the company offers FREE SHIPPING so I decided to give it a try and I am hooked.

Give it a try yourself and let me know what you think in the comments below! If you purchase using the link I provided, you will get a free travel-sized version with your order.
