For many people switching to natural products, deodorant is the one thing that they’re scared to change. No one wants to stink! I’ve tried heaps of natural deodorants over the years, with varying degrees of success. I know now that you need to be patient, as it’ll take a couple of weeks for your body to adjust to a natural deodorant, especially if you’ve been using anti-perspirants for years.
Still, some natural deodorants work better than others, so before we’ll stock any at Hello Charlie, I give them a whirl first. When I spotted the Fresca Natural Deodorants, I was pretty keen to check them out.
I’ve given the Fresca deodorants a good run, and I’ve got to tell you – it’s a winner.
Fresca deodorants are all hand made in Western Australia, they’re 100% aluminium free and they’re made with all natural ingredients. Here’s what the ingredients list looks like for the Citrus one:
:Purified water, aerated salt (saleratus), vegetable gum, essential oils of grapefruit peel, lime fruit peel, tangerine, mandarin, neroli, verbena, chamomile and geranium.
Saleratus is just another name for bicarbonate of soda, and it’s great odour buster. There’s some lovely fresh essential oils there, some water and some vegetable gum so that it’s thick enough to roll on, rather than spray on.
The essential oils in the citrus one are safe to use in pregnancy, too, although not all the scents are so it’s worth checking before you buy one. I've had a sniff of the other scents, and they all smell pretty good. There's unisex, unscented and some more floral ones. All the ingredients are good, so Fresca passes the first test.
Fresca deodorants don’t test on animals, they’re vegan and cruelty free. So that’s all good.
But the real test – does it work?
I took it to Queensland with me when I went to the Byron Bay Bluesfest. I put it on before I left the house, and when I got home very late that night after dancing my socks off in crowds half the day – no stink.
I’ve recently taken up ballet, and that’s a tough work out, let me tell you. I’ve worn it to every class, and guess what? No stink.
I’ve been for a run wearing it, and guess what? No stink.
There’s no alcohol, so it doesn’t sting even when you apply it to freshly shaved skin. It doesn’t leave white marks on my clothes, even if I put my shirt on while the Fresca is still wet. I’ve got to tell you, I’m impressed.
So if you’re thinking of ditching the anti-perspirants and switching to a natural deodorant, I can highly recommend Fresca to you.
