Stinkbug Natural Deodorant Review
Deodorants have become a daily necessity for almost everyone. They keep odour away from you. Especially on hot and humid days that tend to make you sweat all day long. There are many companies of deodorant sprays we know and use for men, women and now alcohol-free for kids.
Deodorants do not stop you from sweating and that is a good sign of a healthy body. It is normal to sweat and very necessary. As it is our body’s mechanism to bring our body to normal temperature 24*7. But anyone can get worried if they are sweating which comes with stinking, and most importantly get under-confident throughout the day.
Deodorants stop your body to sweat and keep you odour free. That’s what I thought and used them all the time. But the excessive use of these sprays throughout the day is not good for you.
Deodorants are usually made with not so skin-friendly chemicals. Such as aluminium compounds, Parabens, Triclosan, Propylene Glycol, TEA and DEA and many more.
Also, breathing difficulties are possible as a consequence of inhaling aerosols. Hence, you cannot use them frequently. Women are more prone to breast cancer, kidney problems due to the toxin’s frequent application and inhalation.
It took months of research to be convinced and swap from chemical-filled deodorants to this GMO-free deodorant stick, Stinkbug Naturals Lavender Deodorant Stick. GMO are toxic, and when mixed with aluminium compounds, paraben, TEA, DEA, etc they can cause skin cancer and other allergic reactions to our body.
The reactions vary from low to high skin sensitivity level. Stinkbug Naturals is manufactured in the US. It is one hundred percent toxin-free. Such as GMO, Propylene Glycol, Aluminum compounds, Paraben, and most importantly cruelty-free. The essential oils used are of high quality and good for normal to sensitive skin types. This product’s authenticity makes it safe for children to use
This deodorant stick by Stinkbug Naturals gives out a strong and refreshing fragrance of lavender, you get used to it with time. The impact of this deodorant stick lasts for up to 48 hours on the skin. The best part is the aroma is not because of any added synthetic fragrance, additives or fillers. Unlike some brands this deodorant stick is cruelty-free, that is the makers do not test these products on any animal. Chemical usage on these living species may have a deadly impact on them.
The pricing of Stinkbug Naturals deodorant stick is worth the quality and quantity. The packaging is not plastic but it is handy. I keep it in my bag and carry it with me every day and everywhere I travel.
The ingredients are all-natural, chemical-free and of high quality which makes them safe for use. Its natural additives are Organic Cocos Nucifera or Coconut Oil, Organic Beeswax, Sodium Bi-carbonate, Organic Zea Mays or Corn Starch, Organic Lavandula Angustifolia or Lavender Oil, Organic Melaleuca Alternifolia or Tea Tree Oil. there is rarely any deodorant stick that does not have baking soda in it.
It also comes in atomic, tea tree, vanilla Mint scented fragrances. I chose lavender scented one because it is strong, and has many calming effects. Lavender oils, scented candles are used in aromatherapy too. This also benefitted me as I could smell lavender from myself while doing my chores and it keeps me calm in many stressful situations. It just helped me go through the day feeling fresh and smelling amazing.
It rarely has any side effect, but no one’s body is the same. Its reaction is conditional on our under-arm skin sensitivity. Apparently, my body’s sensitivity towards new products is completely fine. So there was no reaction apart from the itching that was in the first few days of using this deodorant stick.
You can find these deodorant sticks in stores like Supermarket, Walmart or any general store you get your daily use products from. Besides, you can get them from the comfort of your home through web shopping sites like Amazon, Flipkart, Walmart, and their official web site of stick bug organics. However, it is not available in some parts of the world. But I hope everyone gets to try an amazing product like this in the coming future.
Here are some pros and cons of using Stinkbug Naturals, an all-natural, zero per cent chemical-based deodorant as per my experience:
- Effects of Sweating is normal and a good sign for our body’ health. Sweat releases the body’s toxins and regulates temperature but antiperspirants block the pores and it causes bacteria to build up and stink more. Stink Bug does not clog pores in the underarm, rather it lets the odour go away.
- Stinkbug Naturals aspirants do not cause a burning sensation on the skin.
- The only con is it is not available in all the parts of the world.
- The reaction depends on person to person.
Here’s my experience of using Stinkbug Deodorant for almost a month!
Week 1: There were burning and itching sensations due to the chemical deodorant sprays and sticks I used earlier. However, I never used lavender fragrance. chemical-based deodorant did find the lavender’s aroma too strong for me.
Week 2: I got used to the strong aroma. The burning sensation reduced with less odour from me. The sweating was there but did not make me uncomfortable.
Week 3: The burning sensation was not there anymore. I was not giving away any odour and nobody including me would feel uncomfortable throughout the day. This is exactly what I wanted from this product.
I started using it years ago and since then it has become one of my top essential products. I wanted to share my experience of two weeks of using these products after years of using unaffecting, chemical-based products which give itchy and dark, skinned underarms.
Why did I switch to deodorant sticks and why do I recommend that? Well, deodorant sticks are in general more proficient than sprays. Firstly, its effect lasts longer even though the product lasts longer too. They have zero percent alcohol in total. Thus there is no chance for itching or allergic reactions.
Secondly, they do not take time to dry, in other words, there is no wet mark left on your clothes. And they do not leave any residue on any fabric material as compared to some alcohol-based products do.
Thirdly, after researching in-depth about these alcohol-based mist sprays. I was appalled to read all of the impacts it has on our health and the testing of these chemical mists on innocent animals. This made me give these chemical mists up for my health benefit as well as the environment’s amelioration in the future.
Finally, the only piece of advice I would like to give everyone is, get to know your skin well. It is the protector of your body. So, treat it how it should be. Listen to its wants through its reactions to what you use. The utilization of toxins on your skin only makes it more vulnerable to catch chronic diseases. I am hoping that these pointers are convincing enough for you to swap to Stinkbug deodorant sticks. A simple shift from a chemical-based deodorant mist to an all-natural ingredient based deodorant stick can bring a big positive change to your life.
Hoping to talk about your experiences too.
