Skeptical about switching to natural deodorants? That’s understandable. It’s hard to believe that ingredients found naturally on our planet can replace the chemically engineered ingredients to keep odours at bay; but they can. To help give you an idea, we’ll go over what the key ingredients in Frisk No.1 do to keep odour away!
Organic Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is extracted from the meat of coconuts, and has a unique combination of natural fats making it both highly moisturizing and highly antibacterial. It aids skin barrier function, and dries quickly making it the perfect base for a good natural deodorant.
Activated charcoal is a fine, odourless black powder with super absorbing properties due to the tiny particle size creating a surprisingly large surface area. One gram of activated charcoal has a surface area of 5,400 square feet making it the our secret weapon, absorbing all your body’s toxins and sweat without being heavily concentrated.
Magnesium is an important mineral involved in hundreds on biochemical reactions taking place in your body. An estimated 80% of Americans are deficient in Magnesium, and research has shown that people who are Magnesium-deficient have stronger body odours than those who get enough in their diet.
Not only is avocado oil extremely moisturizing, but it is also packed with Vitamin E which is great for skin. We combine avocado oil with our essential oil blend because the vitamin E prolongs the life of the essential oils ensuring you get to experience the many benefits and delightful scents of the essential oils throughout the life of your natural deodorant.
In our Frisk natural deodorant recipe, arrowroot powder plays three key roles. It is easy on the skin, it acts as a thickening agent, but most importantly it is a strong absorbent, helping to keep you dry throughout the day.
Candelilla wax is what creates the consistency that makes our natural deodorant so easy to apply. This is essentially the glue of the deodorant.
