The New Best Natural Deodorant

Danielle Bisbano - Sunday, May 18, 2014

What's the deal with most commercially-made deodorants these days and why are so many people looking for safer alternatives?  Well, if you do some research you will find a lot of information saying that most deodorants and ANY anti-antiperspirant is dangerous and potentially cancer-causing.  There is also some suggestion that the aluminum in these products could contribute to Alzheimer's.  I am so not in the mood to do all kinds of research right now but, last I heard, neither of these claims have actually been proven.  Guess what, I don't really care.  This is one of those times where you can just use your common sense.  Any products that smells like spring rain or mountain meadows is probably not good for you.  Completely blocking a normal, detoxifying function of the body is obviously not good for you, either.  But, we do have to live in the real world so we can't go walking around all smelly and gross.  Hence, the reason for the abundance of products to choose from when you are looking for a safe alternative.  Sadly, about 90% of what is available just doesn't work and it is a common complaint from so many people trying to make a switch.

 If you read my blog or know me personally, you probably know about my love of Milk of Magnesia as a safe, non-toxic deodorant and you are probably using it because it really just works.  The downside is that is does nothing for moisture so it is only half of a solution.  I always keep my eyes open for new products that look promising and resist the urge daily to buy ALL of them but I stumbled upon one that was so intriguing and promising that I had to try it and I am so glad that I did.

Enter Soapwalla Deodorant Cream


The end all and be all of clean, non-toxic deodorants.  This stuff is amazing.  If you don't believe me, scroll down the product page and check out the reviews.  Not only is it fantastic as a deodorant, but the cornstarch and kaolin clays absorb (not block, big difference) moisture as well so this thing can actually call itself an anti-antiperspirant, too.  The scent is gender neutral which makes is great for men, too.   It is much easier to apply than Milk of Magnesia as it is a cream rather than a liquid.  I got mine at a lovely shop in Boston called Follain which sells so many wonderful and safe products that I could literally just stay there for a whole day touching and smelling everything!  If you want to try this two ounce wonder you can order right from them for $14 and support a local vendor, which is always a good thing. 

Try it out and let me know what you think!
