It’s been nearly a month since we re-launched our cult-favorite aluminum-free Deodorant in stick format with a new blend and three new strengths. The verdict is in: it really works. But don’t just take our word for it. We’ve rounded up Instagram mentions, feedback, and tips from early adopters. Scroll on to read the word on the streets (or should I say, the screens.)
“Let’s talk detoxing armpits! that’s right… sticking to non toxic products & habits is key in the healing process, and important for all of us, whether you’re healing or not here are my top tips:
1. use a natural, aluminum free, gluten free, cruelty free deodorant. my current fave is @milkandhoneyproducts 💜 i use BAKING SODA FREE bc i am sensitive AF!
2. wear natural fibers
3. drink LOTS of water 💦, hydration is KEY
4. apply a small amount of apple cider vinegar lemon or witch hazel to your armpits to neutralize bacteria. let air dry
5. dry your pits thoroughly after shower or bath… bacteria loves moisture!
6. keep in mind leafy greens 🌱 are the best way to balance pH levels, which helps a lot with detox.”
“Yup, @milkandhoneyproducts has finally released their insanely good, natural deodorant in stick form. They were so kind to send this to me a few weeks ago, and I’ve been wearing it daily since. I’m confident in saying that is is just as good as it’s friend in the pot!The best part? There is a sensitive skin version (baking soda free!), and an extra-strength version. The scent I’ve been testing is lavender and tea tree (regular strength); it maintains it’s scent all day- doesn’t turn funky by EOD. I am SO impressed and can’t wait to try all the scents. This deodorant is so creamy, melts immediately into your skin, leaving no white residue behind. It has survived long sweaty Texas summer days and long workouts. Also, this brand is out of Austin and I love supporting local Texas businesses when I can! Milk + Honey is all natural and cruelty free. Their deodorant is aluminum free, paraben free, and gluten free. I wrote a previous post about my love of their products in case you missed it. (DM me and I’ll send it to you!)”
“I switched to natural deodorant 3-years ago, and the road to finding a good natural deodorant that actually works has been long and trying. I’m happy to report I’ve been using @milkandhoneyproducts’ Baking Soda-Free Deodorant for the past few months, and my pits have never been happier! They also have 2 other kinds of deodorant: Regular and Extra Strength for those of you who can tolerate baking soda.”
“@milkandhoneyproducts is incredible- I adore literally everything I’ve ever tried from their range! I’d heard wonderful things about their natural deodorant, but the pot style packaging always threw me off. When I found out that they were coming out with a stick form of their aluminum free, cult classic natural deodorant I was super excited, but wasn’t holding my breath given my horrendous previous experiences. Well, my search is officially over because I’m literally OBSESSED with this product.
It took zero time to “switch over”.
It prevented sweat in the dead of summer.
It lasts all day long.
It’s lavender and tea tree scent is perfect- not overpowering at all.
The hunt is over! Best deodorant ever. .”
“It’s funny, I’ve been trying to “clean up” my diet and scour through skincare ingredients to make sure I put less and less unnecessary chemicals on my skin as I age, yet I hadn’t really thought about switching out one of the biggest offenders: deodorant…
• Deodorants work by killing smell-causing bacteria and masking odor with chemically-produced scents.
• Antiperspirants block your sweat glands altogether. If you don’t sweat, there’s nothing for bacteria to “feed” on.
Switching to more natural alternatives for deodorant may not be for everyone, and it’s important not to fall for hype about actual health consequences ingredients may or may not have unless you’re instructed to for medical reasons. I simply prefer to try natural alternatives for certain products – and if they work – substitute them in my routines.
I’m happy to report that #milkandhoneyproducts deodorant does the trick wonderfully – even in extreme heat. For something I put on my body every single day, it’s great to know I have a natural alternative that actually works!”
Have you made the clean switch yet?
