Deodorant: Coconut Cream Summer Rain
The coconut cream Summer Rain is first of all a very tasty smelly deodorant. After removing the lid of the little deodorant can, you dive into a sea of fresh creamy scents. The essential oils of lavender, rosemary, ylang ylang and theme are the main reason for that.
The deodorant comes in a beautiful and handy 5.7 grams can – easy to open and use.
Ingredients: Organic Virgin Coconut Oil; Organic Jojoba Oil; Organic Cornstarch; Baking Soda; Organic Beeswax; Organic Essential Oils of Lavender, Rosemary, Ylang Ylang, Thyme.
The coconut oil has antibacterial properties, cornstarch soothes skin and absorbs perspiration, the baking soda makes the skin on your armpits less friendly to odor causing bacteria.
This is entirely hand made product and every batch is unique. That is why and every single batch has it owns batch number. The deodorant is Certified Organic, Non GMO, and Cruelty Free.
How to apply?
Use it daily to a clean and dry skin on your armpits. Use clean fingers. I use the outside of my nails to take a small amount of the deodorant and apply it. Leave it for about 1 minute to absorb and put your t-shirt on. You will notice also how soft and good cared your skin feels!
Some people though can experience irritation to their skin caused by the baking soda. It may occur in the beginning of the using or later.
What is the difference between deodorant and antiperspirant?
The deodorants are used to kill or mask the odor creating bacteria on our skin. They help your skin breathing while sweating. They don’t clog your pores therefore you will sweat but not smell. They leave your skin breathing while sweating.
The antiperspirants clog your pores. It has elements in it that go into your pores and stop the release of sweat. They actually keep you dry.
So if there is asking if the Coconut Cream Summer Rain Natural Organic Deodorant works, I would say yes, it does! I sweat on the most warm days or while sporting but I don’t smell. Before I had experience with antiperspirants that were nothing but help to me. So I used a antiperspirant plus a deodorant which at some point hit me is not so healthy for my armpits skin. Putting so much chemicals on such a sensitive area is nothing but a trouble.
