If you had asked me two years ago if I was using a natural deodorant I probably would have laughed at you and made some lame joke about it being too hippy for me. My lifestyle isn’t that green and you would catch me going vegan before you would see me using a natural deodorant. I mean if it was made in someones basement how could it possibly work? Well while I’m not vegan and don’t plan on going that route any time soon I am using a natural deodorant, K’Pure Get Closer to be precise. What made me change, you ask?
There are two reasons why I decided to give natural deodorant a try, the first being the most important, the lack of harsh chemicals that I would be putting in my body. I know that you don’t consume deodorant but your skin does and most people (myself included) don’t really think about that. Your skin soaks it up and it then enters other areas of your body such as your breast milk. Yes, your breast milk. While we always worry about things such as alcohol entering into our breast milk we never give a second thought about the lotions that we apply daily that could affect our breast milk. This is something I never would have been aware of, had it not been for Amanda of Minimoc raving about the deodorant on Instagram. Of course as curious as I am I had to go check it out, and sure enough right there on the K’Pure Naturals website she explains how she discovered her son (purely breastfed at the time) had high levels of aluminum in his system and thus the start to creating the perfect natural deodorant began.
The second reason why I am a natural deodorant convert, and equally as important as the first, it works! Yes as skeptical as I am about it, it really does the job its meant to do. Karen has spent quite some time perfecting her deodorant to ensure it’s able to stand up to everyday tasks and she is the perfect candidate to do so. Not only is she a mom to four, she is also a personal trainer and boot camp instructor. Umm hello, if those jobs don’t make you sweat I don’t know what will.
When Karen saw my scepticism of trying a natural deodorant, she reached out to me and offered to send me some to try. At this point I couldn’t say no, I mean worst case I was just going to stink for a few days right? Well guess what I am happy to report that I am about a month into using K’Pure Get Closer deodorant and I don’t smell any different than I did before! I am extremely impressed with capability of this natural deodorant. Over the course of the last 3 weeks I have only had one day where I felt the need to reapply and those were on days when I had multiple events to attend and just wanted to freshen up a bit in-between. Even with this glorious weather we have been having, the deodorant has been standing up to its task. At this point I think it’s safe to say I am happily converted and deodorant is one item you won’t find in my shopping cart at the grocery store anymore.
