Toronto based green beauty brand Wildcraft has launched two new deodorant spray scents - a herbal Petigrain and Rosemary Deodorant Spray and a grounding Cypress and Cedarwood Deodorant Spray*!
These Deodorants Are...
- Cruelty Free
- Baking Soda Free
- Residue Free
- 100% Natural
- 98% Organic
- Handmade in Toronto
They're Made With...
- Magnesium Hydroxide
- Witch Hazel Distillate**
- Aloe Leaf Juice**
- A Blend of Essential Oils
The magnesium hydroxide is what makes this deodorant work - it's an ingredient that adjusts the pH levels of the skin so it becomes a place inhospitable to the odor causing bacteria. Sounds a little sciencey (and it is) but that's how natural deodorants work, they use either magnesium, or baking soda, or even cornstarch to adjust our pH levels in a safe and healthy way!
While the magnesium does it's job, the witch hazel and aloe leaf juice balance and soothe the skin, while the blend of essential oils provide a light, fresh scent.
Texture - Because this deodorant is a spray, it doesn't really have a traditional deodorant texture. It's very light and fresh on application, it doesn't feel heavy or greasy in any way, and because of the super light texture, it's not going to cause residue build up or stains on your clothing!
Scent - While Wildcraft's original deodorant spray was a blend of clary sage and lavender, these two new options are petigrain and rosemary, and cypress and cedarwood.
The former is such a dreamy scent! The petigrain provides a little uplifting citrus scent that pairs so well with the rosemary, which has a very herbal scent that I can't get enough of. The combination is so fresh and yummy, I'm obsessed with it, and I know it'll be the perfect scent for Summer!
The latter, the cypress and cedarwood, reminds me of the woods, with grounding notes of cypress and cedar, it's like literally stepping into a forest, so it'll go great with all of your Summer camping trips!
Efficacy - I love using these as an everyday deodorant. They work really well, they're long lasting, and they keep odor at bay for your daily rituals. I really love them because I don't have to worry about any greasy residue or staining, which is actually pretty common with natural deodorants because a lot of them use coconut oil. This one is coconut oil free, so you're going to feel light and fresh and clean all day! That being said, I do find these don't work incredibly well for workouts, in which case you'll probably want to bring in a heavy duty deodorant.
Sustainability - Just like their Geranium Orange Blossom Face Cream, Wildcraft has made this product a sustainable option for people interested in green beauty! Packaged in recyclable and reusable aluminum, and made with 98% organic ingredients, I can't say there's anything I'd do to improve the sustainability!
