Naturally Fresh Deodorants – Odor Protection without Health Risks
When you work at a busy Mexican restaurant with a broken air conditioning system in the middle of summer, you worry about sweat and body odor.
So I was really nervous when I tested Naturally Fresh Deodorant Crystal in Tropical Breeze before a hectic weekend shift. I normally return from work covered in my own blood, sweat, and tears, and other people’s chili con queso. I need a deodorant that works.
I had my doubts about the product because, though I’ve eco-tized most of my toiletries, I haven’t been able to give up my tough Sure brand deodorant/antiperspirant that I buy from the drugstore. I’m so paranoid about sweat and bad odor that I ignore the warnings about aluminum, the active ingredient in traditional deodorant/antiperspirant.
But I was really surprised by Naturally Fresh. It’s 100% natural, hypoallergenic, paraben- and PG Free, and doesn’t contain aluminum chlorohydrate. It naturally protects against bacteria, which causes odor. It doesn’t protect against sweat — but sweat is harmless and the body’s natural way of cooling itself down.
I returned from work feeling really clean. Now, I’m rethinking my aluminum-laden antiperspirant deodorant choice because of its possible link to breast cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.
I also tested the Tropical Breeze Spray Mist. You spray it under your arms or on your feet for 24 hour protection against odor, provided by natural mineral salts.
After a long shift at work, my feet don’t smell great after I peel them out of my black socks and rubber-soled shoes. But the spray mist changed that. After an 8 hour day, my feet smelled fresh when I took my shoes off that night. I love this product because I like to meet up with my friends at a bar or restaurant after work, but I’m embarrassed about how foul my feet must smell after being cooped up in heavy shoes for hours. Now I don’t have to worry about that. I definitely plan to continue using the Naturally Fresh Spray Mist in Tropical Breeze every day.
At $3.99 for the spray mist and deodorant as well, there’s no reason for me to return to dangerous aluminum antiperspirant.
Look What’s NOT Inside
If you’re curious about what these deodorants are made of — and what they’re not made of — here’s what Naturally Fresh says about the ingredients:
Naturally Fresh Deodorant Crystal products are 100% pure and natural, non-staining, and provide up to 24 hour, hypoallergenic protection against body and foot odor. Our products are also paraben free, propylene glycol free, phthalate free, and contain no harmful aluminums (aluminum chlorohydrate, aluminum zirconium). They function as natural deodorants, which kill odor-causing bacteria while permitting the pores to excrete toxins naturally. This is vital to maintain healthy, axillary lymph nodes located in the underarm area.
For those who prefer a scented deodorant, we now offer Tropical Breeze as an Allergen Free fragrance to our formula. Our fragrances are 100% Phthalate and Allergen Free, and 100% pure and natural. The fragrances are a blend of natural oils, resins and extracts. They follow INCI regulations for fragrances and labeling, and are IFRA Certified.
Tropical Breeze Spray Mist contents: Aqua (Purified Water), Natural Mineral Salts (Potassium Alum), Fragrance (Parfum)
Fragrance-Free Roll-on: Aqua (Purified Water), Natural Mineral Salts (Potassium Alum), Zinc Ricinoleate, Xanthan Gum, Chamomile Extract (Anthemis Nobilis Flower), Phenoxyethanol
Even more comforting than the list of ingredients is the fact that Environmental Working Group‘s Skin Deep Cosmetic Safety Database ranks all the Naturally Fresh products that they examined as a ZERO on their hazard rating. That’s impressive, especially for a product that lives up to its claims of effectiveness.
