For my the majority of my life, I was naive to the fact that traditional deodorants contained some pretty harmful ingredients. I would say the same goes for most people until they’re educated on the topic. I was like every other guy, using Old Spice, Axe, Dove, or Degree, picking my deodorant of choice by smelling nearly every stick on the shelf at CVS.
Until one day my uncle came over and started telling me about one of his friends who made him what he called “coconut deodorant.” I was shocked, and at the same time very interested. I had never heard of any alternatives to a normal drug store deodorant, and this was before people were becoming more aware of the chemicals and toxic ingredients in our skin care. He told me he’d get me one every time he came over, but he never did.
I decided to do some research of my own, and head to the local health foods grocery store to pick up some baking soda, coconut oil, arrowroot powder, and peppermint essential oil. I mixed everything together, and put it all in a glass mason jar. Wearing my new deodorant with pride for the next couple weeks, I loved how felt on my skin, and was surprised it seriously worked!
I went on making a batch of this simple but effective deodorant every couple of months when mine would run out, and then my girlfriend asked me about it one day. I began telling her about all the harmful ingredients and health risks involved with traditional deodorants, and she was sold on the idea. Maybe I had something here?
I started ordering other natural deodorants I found online, and trying them out for myself, figuring out what I liked and didn’t like about them, and what I could improve.
Over the next 6 months, I spent hundreds of hours researching natural ingredients, learning everything there is to know about natural deodorant, and the serious health effects that are linked to the traditional deodorants we use every day without even thinking twice. 20+ different formulas later, Breathe Naturals was born. We began working on a label, website, finding the right stick to hold it in, and much more.
Now, my mission is to spread the word and the truth about deodorants to the world, it starts with me, then with you, then spreads as people discover Breathe Naturals. I want people to know what’s really in your deodorant, and to be using a product that actually has ingredients in it that are beneficial for your skin, and to throw that old chemical packed deodorant in the trash for good.
Your support means everything, and telling a friend about this product is what helps us grow. So thank you, and cheers to RESETTING YOUR SWEAT !
