Born to Bio natural deodorant review frozen ginger


how are you? Today I would like to review Born to Bio natural deodorant. I have been looking for a good natural deodorant for a long time. If you are interested in natural cosmetics then you know how difficult it is to find a decent natural deodorant (same with natural mascara). There are many natural deodorants  on the market but they contain aluminium which I want to avoid.

We should be all concerned about our health and I am being careful what kind of things I apply under my arms. I am perfectly  aware that a natural deodorant will not offer me as good protection as a traditional deodorant. It will not prevent the sweating process because it is not its job. So what the natural deodorant should do? 
It should stop or at least reduce the growth of bacteria. In other words it should minimize the odour. In the past I have been testing many natural deodorants  but unfortunately they were rather bad: they were either too sticky  or they would not dry quick enough. 

When I spotted  products from Born to Bio company I was very happy. I have not heard about this company before and I was very curious to try some of their products so I have bought a hair conditioner and a deodorant. Deodorants are available in four different scents:  ginger, rose, vanilla or zen (fresh grass smell). I got the ginger one.

Born to Bio Deodorant in ginger contains antiperspirant essential oils and bamboo powder which is known for its antibacterial properties. I thought it would be a good product. And it was at the beginning...
At the beginning the deodorant was working great I would apply it in the morning and in the evening I would still feel fresh. Deodorant would dry quickly after the application so it was a real time saver. It offered a very good protection against odour but...
Everything has changed when I got ill. I started sweating differently, I mean the body started releasing toxins through skin and my body smell was different.  And that was just awful: my chemistry and the smell of ginger would not work together whatsoever. At this point I won't go into details but trust me it was a disaster. No need to say that I have stopped using Born to Bio deodorant completely. Despite all this the deodorant has many positives as well:

  • absorbs quickly
  • doesn't  dry the skin
  • doesn't cause irritation
  • doesn't stain the clothes
  • aluminium-free
  • alcohol free
  • hypoallergenic
  • it has 100% natural fragrance
  • good natural ingredients

Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Pseudotsuga Menziesii (Balsam Oregon) Water*, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf Water*, Glycerin, Xanthan Gum, Benzyl Alcohol, Lauroyl Lysine, Mentha Arvensis Leaf OIil, zingiber officinale Root Oil, Cedrus Atlantica Bark Oil, Bambusa Arundinacea Stem Extract, Dehydroacetic Acid, Cymbopogon Martinii (Palmarosa) Oil*, Cupressus Aempervirens (Cypress) Oil*, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil*, Geraniol, Limonene, Linalool, Citral, Farnesol.

Because of the positives above I am still going to try the same deodorant but in different scent: vanilla or zen. I think that the ginger scent was too strong for me, maybe too masculine as well and that is why it didn't work for me but maybe it will work for you. I would say give it a try.

What do you think? Do you have any favourite natural deodorants?

Sante, Açai Energy roll-on deodorant, natural deodorant

today I would like to review Sante deodorant. I like Sante company and I was hoping that this deo will be really nice since acai berries are good for us:).
Manufacturer says that Açai Energy roll-on deodorant provides completely natural and long-lasting protection against body odor without irritating the skin. The revitalizing composition of essential oils boosts the deodorizing effect and leaves your skin feeling fresh. Contains no synthetic colorants, scents or preservatives.
Hmmm, I have to disagree. This deodorant does not provide long lasting protection because it doesn't really dry. It just leaves the sticky feeling. It doesn't dry so it doesn't absorb.  After a couple of hours bacteria start growing and I don't feel fresh anymore. In fact there is no difference if I would or would not use this deo. Bleh...
I do not recommend!
Ingredient (CTFA/INCI):
Aqua (Water), Alcohol denat., Glycerin, Triethyl Citrate, Sorbitol, Cetyl Alcohol, Parfum (Essential Oils), Lauryl Lactate, Betaine, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Glucoside, Xanthan Gum, Lactic Acid, Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Oil ⇒ Açaiöl / Euterpe Oleracea Pulp Powder, Rumex Acetosa Leaf Extract, Tocopherol, Limonene, Geraniol, Linalool, , Farnesol
