This new bicarb free deodorant is designed for people who are sensitive to bicarbonate in deodorants. This is also low fragrance, so it's really great for those with super sensitive skin.
A few of the reasons I love this deodorant are - It doesn’t sting after shaving. It lasts all day long, through an enormous amount of racing around at work and all the way through to yoga class in the evening. I even think it would last longer than that, but I haven’t tested an all nighter yet! It also doesn’t stain my clothes. I've been wearing it heading into this hot Gold Coast weather, have worn it for a swim in the ocean and it's kept me dry, No Pong is also water resistant!
One of the key ingredients to keep your pits dry in the bicarb free formula is diatomaceous earth and it really works! Diatomaceous earth is almost perfectly pH neutral, meaning it won't irritate skin that is sensitive to acidic or alkaline levels. It also has odour eliminating properties, I can vouch for that!
The main reason I stopped using mainstream deodorants was because of the extremely toxic ingredients such as mercury, which has been linked to alzheimers disease and parabens, which have been linked to breast cancer. Not to mention a few other dangerous ingredients - PEG 20, propylene glycol and triclosan. This is also very important for pregnant and breast feeding mothers, as these toxins are passed through into the bloodstream, into the breastmilk and to the baby.
The founders of No Pong, Chris Caley and Melanie McVean have spent a lot of time researching and developing, what I think is the perfect natural deodorant. You can read more in my interview with them here.
I love the packaging, it’s a cool looking recyclable tin. The paste is easy to apply, just a small dot on fingers and it smooths onto skin easily.
