Natural Deodorant Review ~ Schmidt’s

schmidts

Natural deodorant that keeps you DRY and smelling fresh! Yippee! Free of aluminum, synthetics and other chemicals. All Natural, Vegan & Cruelty Free. SCHMIDT’S DEODORANT is now an essential part of my daily routine.

I like that SCHMIDT’S DEODORANT comes with a little spatula, it makes application easier so I don’t get deodorant under my nails. This product gets a bit dry and flakey as you scrap off the top but once you get in on your fingers, you rub your fingers together to warm the ingredients. Then it becomes creamy and applies easily. You do have to wash your hands after applying but I much more prefer this method than wearing aluminum under my arms.

Aluminum is linked to cancer, our armpits are full of lymph nodes that are close to our breasts, that is WAY to close to comfort for me. Think about how much we sweat from our underarms, this is a sensitive part of our body and we are ingesting whatever product we put in the area. I will never again use Degree!

I’ve tried MANY natural deodorants, I’ve never had to much trouble with B.O. but I sweat a lot and I hate having wet underarms. Most natural deodorants are just highly fragranced with essential oils to cover any smell but they lack any anti-persperant element, which prevents wetness (what aluminum is used for). I workout almost everyday and work in Fitness, so it’s very important that I have a deodorant that keeps me dry, fresh and can hold up even during my sweatiest workouts. Schmidt’s is the one!

My favorite scent is Bergamot + Lime, it’s extremely fresh and not overpowering. My first couple applications of this deodorant caused my underarms to break out but this often happens when switching deodorants. I decided to stick it out, I’m happy I did because my body adjusted and I’m no longer breaking out. I HIGHLY recommend this product, hands down the BEST NATURAL DEODORANT on the market! One jar is $9.00 but a little bit goes a LONG way. You only need to use a very small amount. This product is made with Shea Butter, baking soda, cocoa seed butter, essential oils & vitamin E.
