If you look at a conventional deodorant, chances are you won’t recognize most of the ingredients on the label. However, you’ll know all of the ingredients in Truly’s!
Truly’s Natural Deodorant contains organic coconut oil, powdered sugar (Sugar, cornstarch), baking soda, and beeswax. That’s reason enough to give it a shot – keeping all of those chemicals away from your skin is definitely a good thing.
The deodorant comes in a tub, and is very easy to apply. It’s a thick cream with a light, pleasant scent. It rubs in easily, and hasn’t left any marks on my clothing. Overall I have enjoyed using it – it does take some getting used to – it has a different feel than your standard antiperspirant. It’s great for my sensitive skin, leaving it soft with no irritation. I think this would also be a great deodorant for kids, since you don’t have to worry about exposing them to any harmful chemicals.
Truly’s will keep you smelling fresh while the sugar in their deodorant combines with your own perspiration to create a hyper osmotic solution that prevents odor causing bacterial growth. Before antibiotics, sugar and honey were used to prevent infections in open wounds. In an article called “The Sweet Art of Healing”, Dr. Julian Whitaker explains why they work:
When sugar or honey is packed on top of and inside of an open wound, it dissolves in the fluid exuding from the wound, creating a hyperosmotic, or highly concentrated, medium. Bacteria cannot live in a hyperosmotic environment any more than a goldfish could survive in the Great Salt Lake. Scientists have tested the viability of many types of bacteria, including Klebsiella, Shigella, Staphylococcus aureus, and Streptococcus pyogenes, and none of them have been able to survive in a honey or sugar solution.(1)
Their finely milled baking soda works as another natural, powerful odor fighter. In addition, coconut oil has antimicrobial (both antibacterial and antifungal) properties and is skin soothing and moisturizing. Truly’s uses only the best cold pressed, organic coconut oil which has a wonderful light coconut smell. With Truly’s Natural Deodorant, you don’t have to compromise effectiveness to stay true to your health. Finally, a natural deodorant that lasts all day! Try it and see for yourself!
