Balance: A Deodorant
I’ve recently discovered a fabulous line that makes the most amazing organic products (and you know how I feel about a good organic product!). The line is called International Orange and it’s part of a San Francisco Spa with the same name.
All of the products are “made with certified organic, wild-crafted or biodynamically grown ingredients of the highest integrity and are sourced from the finest available growers. All vegetable oils and butters are fair trade. All products are crafted by hand.”
Products range from a body wash, body cream, shampoo and conditioner and a deodorant…. yes, an organic deodorant!
I’m pretty much obsessed with Balance: The Deodorant. And here’s why: Obviously, it’s all natural, thus the ingredients aren’t harmful to you or the environment. It smells refreshingly clean yet musky – very unisex. With a mixture of lavender flower, echinacea root, and comfrey leaf I just feel like my body is being cleansed, soothed and healed. AND, it comes with a spray pump applicator – the mist is SO refreshing (even a bit tingling).
A word (or several…) from the company:
“A neutralizing body deodorant with extraordinary antibacterial and antimicrobial properties and that gently fortifies the immune system. Lavender Flower is refreshing and antibacterial. Echinacea Root increases bodily resistance to infection and impurities. Comfrey Leaf is astringent and antioxidant.”
To be completely honest, I’m not entirely sure if this is meant to be used as an underarm deodorant, a body deodorant or both. I use it for both. Since there aren’t any harmful or synthetic ingredients and I enjoy the clean smell, I figure, why not just spray it whenever I feel the need for a pick-me-up? After all, it is Summer, and that means it’s hot and muggy – we’re all in need of a “spray down” from time to time. And so far, it has yet to disappoint! Not to mention, it fits perfectly in my purse alongside my lip gloss and mascara!
PRICE TAG: $38.00 for 4 oz (a bit pricey but your pits will thank-you!)
