Ever since I found out how dangerous and toxic regular antiperspirant deodorant is, I have been on a mission to find a safe, natural alternative that actually works. I’ve tried lots of different kinds and brands and most have worked for awhile but seem to lose their effectiveness over time – you can see all the ones I’ve tried over the years here.
I finally found a local company that made a natural deodorant that I really liked – Primal Pit Paste. But it didn’t last long enough and I would have to reapply at least once during the day. After a couple months of using it, my underarms started getting irritated, itchy skin from the baking soda that’s in it, so I continued my search.
While watching Shark Tank last year, I saw a new product – PiperWai Natural Deodorant – featured that seemed to show promise and I had to try it. I ordered some online and several months later feel comfortable to share with you my new favorite deodorant! Watch the Shark Tank pitch and follow up episodes here to hear directly from the creators of this awesome product.
The ingredients list is amazingly simple. Organic coconut oil, shea butter, cocoa butter and vitamin E oil make it easy to apply and perfect for the sensitive underarm skin – it has not caused me any irritation at all and I often apply right after shaving. But the main ingredient that works to deodorize is activated charcoal – it creates a pH balance that neutralizes bacteria that causes odor. Plus, that same ingredient is super absorbent and wicks away moisture from sweat, leaving you dry without clogging your pores. (source) It also has 11 different essential oils in it that help fight bacteria and make it smell great.
PiperWai is the best natural deodorant and antiperspirant I’ve found that is totally safe to use without compromising how well it works and how comfortable it is. It comes in a small jar and you just use your fingers to apply- it rubs in quickly and doesn’t leave a residue or any staining on clothing. It seems expensive at first but one jar lasts me over 2 months applying each day. Buy it now and try for yourself!
