I’m picky about my deodorant, I mean there is nothing more embarrassing than smelling like a sweaty truck driver. Since body odor became an issue I have always carried my go to brand deodorant in my purse. Vowing to never ever be given the name smelly armpit girl. For many years my go to deodorant worked perfectly, that is until I found out about the harmful ingredients in antiperspirants deodorants. Now, I am certain the only way to go is natural and Humble Brand deodorant is helping me do just that.
The Danger of Typical Deodorants
Many antiperspirants and deodorants contain ingredients such as;
Many of these ingredients are linked to breast cancer, Alzheimer’s, kidney disease and can even cause allergic reactions. After reading this I knew I needed to make a change but I had no idea where to start. In my journey to find a natural deodorant to replace my favorite brand, I ended up running into products that would make my underarms wet and smelly after about one hour of wear. This is a complete no-no for me because I love to smell nice and as I mentioned above I hate and fear ever smelling like a sweaty truck driver. With this thought in the back of my mind I continued to search and was led to Humble Brands deodorant. I can finally say I have found a deodorant to replace my go to product that I have used since the age of 15.
The Humble Brand Difference
Unlike most natural deodorants, Humble has a pleasant scent and uses only four to five ingredients that you can actually pronounce. Humble Brand deodorants are organic and safe for your skin and body. In addition Humble Brand deodorants include the following benefits;
- Aluminum Free- This ingredient may sound harmless, especially since it appears in a lot of store bought antiperspirants, but this ingredient clogs your pores and puts you at risk for Alzheimer’s disease and breast cancer. Humble never uses these ingredients so that you can put your mind at ease.
- Cruelty Free- Humble is a wonderful brand because they never test on innocent animals. All products are only tested on humans. I give them one furry paw up for this decision.
- Paraben-Free- For a few years now consumers have been learning about the harmful effects of using products with paraben. They have been known to cause major health problems including cancer. Do yourself a favor and stay away from this ingredient. Stick with natural products like Humble Brand and save yourself from potential harm.
- Organic/Non GMO- Humble states on their site that “all ingredients that can be organic, are organic!”
Humble Brand Deodorant Ingredients:
- Organic Cornstarch
- Organic Olive Oil
- Organic Bee’s Wax
- All natural Baking Soda
- Organic Essential Oil
Each ingredient adds something special to the Humble Brand deodorant. For example the organic cornstarch, a common kitchen staple, helps keep underarms dry. Also the essential oils add fragrance that is calming and not overwhelming. They are also naturally soothing and have healing properties that are to grand to mention them all here.
Humble Brand deodorants come in three scents; simply unscented, Essential Cedar wood, and Essential Lavender. You can subscribe and receive one stick of your choice one a month, every two months or every three months for $7.50. But, if you prefer to purchase one stick to try, you can do that also for $8 per stick. I don’t know about you but in my opinion this is the most affordable organic deodorant on the market and it keeps you dry and smelling fresh.
I will continue to use Humble Brand deodorant because I care about my health and what I put in and on my body. Make a pledge to go natural for 2017 and see how much better you will feel.
