After weeks of careful late-night research, you’ve officially decided to ditch your commercial underarm products to take a walk on the wild side. Soon gone are the days of aluminum and hard to pronounce chemicals; you’re here for the natural goodness that is baking soda, arrowroot, and coconut oil. Let’s face it, you’ve been wanting to tell your old deodorant or antiperspirant to take a hike for a while now, but have had cold feet when it’s come down to making a clean break.
You’ve finally mustered the courage to take the leap and toss your old commercial antiperspirant for our natural deodorant. Just from ordering your pit’s new pal, you’re already envisioning greener pastures and feeling optimistic about the future. You apply it for the first time and can’t believe you’ve gone so long without this plant-powered miracle worker. For some people, however, this bright and cheery new relationship takes a turn for the worse. Either immediately or after a period of time, your pits itch or show signs of irritation. It all seemed so perfect at first, what gives?
