I had the same question as most people.
The first day using the new formula outside the house, I brought along my antiperspirant for backup – just in case.
That was quite a day, as it turned out, it was the PERFECT day for a "deodorant test". I locked my keys in my car, had to wait 45 minutes for an Uber. Then, once home, waited an hour for a locksmith and another hour while he tried to break into my (apparently very secure) house.
All together about 4 hours.
Needless to say, I completely forgot about the deodorant test. And when I say completely forgot, I mean it never quit working. When I realized I had not had any issues after a day like that, I knew I had to share this product with my customers.
Since then, I have had many people tell me that the Flowersong formula is the only one they can find that is not irritating, is all natural, and actually works.
It never gets used, but I still have that antiperspirant..... just in case......
In the modern, enclosed world, the pursuit of smelling good is more than important, it is critical. Products with chemicals that prevent our natural human smell from being an issue in close quarters have become the norm. With the perception of side effects and imbalances from synthetic ingredients, some people are searchng for a natural alternative to the chemicals that shut down our natural functions. Our natural deodorant is one alternative.
Body chemistry varies from person to person, and our metabolism is also affected by diet and stress levels. However, a common experience is that less intense odor problems exist once the body adjusts to the removal of the chemicals that block its function. It is after this "detox" period that natural deodorants are able to support the absorption of odor causing perspiration in a gentle way.
Two things must be present in order for a deodorant to be effective. 1) it must stay on the skin and 2) it must absorb sweat (while staying on the skin) and neutralize odors. Our formula does both of these things well and is easy to apply.
Made with a combination of natural clays, powders, and butters, our deodorant is a unique blend that adheres to skin, holds moisture, and neutralizes odor. Shea butter and kaolin clay are the two key ingredients, in addition to small amounts of baking soda.
