I received the pictured product at no cost for review purposes. Anti-perspirant/deodorant has been one of the most difficult products for me to switch over to “all natural.” After so many years of using the chemical-laden products, I know I need to just stop using them cold turkey and switch them over, but the adjustment period can be hard!
Though pHresh deodorant isn’t an anti-perspirant, it isn’t just a fancy perfume. It contains ingredients to moisturize skin, absorb moisture and kill odor causing bacteria. It does not contain propolyne glycol, petroleum, aluminum or chemicals. It’s also gentle and won’t irritate your skin.
Ingredients: Aloe Barbadensis, Propanediol (Corn-based skin moisturizer that binds other ingredients together), Zea Mays Starch (Maize-derived skin protectant that absorbs moisture), Sodium Stearate (Coconut and palm oils that clean and freshen skin), Silica (Minerals that absorb moisture and sweat), Saccharomyces Ferment (Plant juice that absorbs moisture and kills odor-causing bacteria), Stearyl Behenate (Plant acid that conditions and moisturizes skin), Carrageenan (Vegan alternative to gelatin that helps bind ingredients together), Lycium Barbarum (Fruit extract that acts as both astringent and skin conditioner), Glycerin, Lauryl Laurate (Plant based oil that conditions and moisturizes skin), Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (Plant-based essential oils that provide natural fragrance), Leuconostoc (Radish root extract serves as an antifungal and antimicrobial agent.)
I received the Creme Brulee scent, which smells just like it sounds. Lightly sweet and pleasant. (I’d love to try the Barely Sweet scent as well.) You can also choose unscented. When I first put it on, it felt slightly sticky, but just for a few minutes as it dried. This may be “TMI” but I am a bit sweaty by nature. I spent the first week using PHresh sniffing myself a lot, ha ha. I found I needed to reapply the deodorant somewhat often, but I never felt like I was stinky. The longer I used it, the better I felt it worked. I think there is some truth to the advice that you need to allow your body to get used to not having the aluminum and chemicals every day. I think that finding a natural deodorant that works for you can be a bit of trial and error, but this one is definitely worth a try!
