Tallow Deodorant - Citrus - 3 oz
Shalley wanted to formulate an all-natural deodorant that’s both effective and gentle. In doing so, it seemed important to feature ingredients that support a healthy skin biome and immune system, while eliminating ingredients that cause irritation or could potentially be harmful.
After lots of trial and error over the past few years, we've landed on a formulation that we love! Our Tallow Deodorant absorbs wetness, neutralizes odor, and promotes a healthy skin biome, without blocking lymph nodes and sweat glands.
Our active powder blend is suspended in a highly emollient, antimicrobial combination of grass-fed tallow, grass-fed ghee, and local beeswax.
Baking soda deodorants are popular these days, but many people experience skin irritation caused by its high pH. As a result, we include only a small sprinkle of baking soda to our active powder blend, just enough to neutralize the odor-causing bacteria it comes in contact with. The irritating effects of a high pH are offset by the skin-friendly animal fats in which it is suspended. An array of other actives such as magnesium, zinc, and goldenseal also work synergistically to combat odor.
Coconut oil is a very popular ingredient in natural deodorants but we didn't include it in ours because many people report a sensitivity to it.
We hope you'll give it a try!
This nourishing Deodorant is free of aluminum, alcohol, parabens, and synthetic fragrance. One swipe of the comfortable wide applicator and you're on your way. Re-apply as needed.
When switching to a natural product such as this, you may experience a transition period that may include excessive odor or sweating. If this happens, you may benefit from our pit mask for your armpits, to remove buildups and improve the bacterial balance on your skin.
INGREDIENTS: Grassfed tallow, grass-fed ghee, beeswax, bamboo powder, magnesium hydroxide, banana powder, non-nano zinc oxide, goldenseal root, sodium bicarbonate, and essential oil blend - Sweet Orange, Bergamot, Pink Grapefruit, and Lemon
Grassfed Buffalo Tallow — Rendered from our family’s herd of water buffalo, this exceptionally nutritious fat is the basis of all our products. In our deodorant, its added benefits include moisturizing sensitive skin and supporting healthy sweat secretion.
Grassfed Ghee -- Free of lactose and casein, ghee is clarified butter that has been cooked longer for a shelf-stable, nutty-smelling healthy fat. It is a good source of Vitamins A and D and has antibacterial properties.
Beeswax - Gives body to our formulation and is also antimicrobial by nature.
Bamboo Powder - Absorbs 500 times its weight in moisture, the bamboo powder is a natural choice for a natural deodorant. It does not block sweat glands, but instead absorbs excess sweat!
Goldenseal — This herb is antimicrobial and strongly astringent. It also soothes underarm rashes.
Banana Powder — This Potassium and Vitamin A-rich powder helps our deodorant absorb wetness while moisturizing and soothing your pits. Unlike other starches we've tried in natural deodorants, banana powder does not clog pores in armpits.
Zinc Oxide (non-nano) - When combined with magnesium hydroxide acts as an effective odor neutralizer. It boasts many, many benefits for the skin!
Magnesium Hydroxide - We can all use a little more calmness from magnesium and when combined with zinc oxide it is a natural odor fighter!
Sodium Bicarbonate - Powerful odor neutralizer, naturally mined and naturally aluminum-free.
