Woohoo All Natural Deodorant Paste-Mellow
We have been trying to source a bi carb free natural deodorant that does as good a job as the bi carb version and it has been quite a challenge! This is the one that has come out on top for us, keeping you smelling fresh all day. Some people can get a rash from the bi carb and it actually does sting quite a lot. When I personally first started using natural deodorants, I got the rash too so I know how it feels though I did persist and it went away after a short period of time. We know that it doesn't go away for everyone so it was important for us to find a very sensitive version. And this is SUPER sensitive-even without essential oils that can cause irritation for a few. Check out the ingredients in the description. It doesn't have much of a smell at all so don't expect it to cover your scent, that is not the point of this one. It just neutralises your odour so no BO smell at all. We have been told that some bubba's are a bit sensitive with scents when breastfeeding so this is great for that. And it is also good if you are pregnant and trying to steer clear of essential oils in general. As with all natural deodorants, it can take a little while to get used to the product for some-they don't contain the aluminium that clogs up your pores to try to stop you from sweating so it is a little adjustment. So worth it though. Give this a go-a tub will last you a few months.
This is a bicarb soda free, fragrance free, essential oil free, skin LOVING Woohoo All Natural Deodorant Paste.
Why? Because bicarb soda is a fantabulous natural deodoriser BUT it can upset some people. Even though we've carefully adjusted the pH of our deodorants to minimise the chance of irritation, there are some incredibly sensitive souls who can’t even tolerate the tiniest amount.
Woohoo Mellow has the smoothest of textures, applies like an absolute dream, and busts body odour like you wouldn't believe. Even without essential oils.
The new superstar ingredients are absolute crackers!
Magnesium Hydroxide (also goes by “milk of magnesia”) - You guessed it - the same stuff used to stop indigestion and heartburn. Who would have thought it also works an absolute treat at neutralising BO.
Activated Charcoal - What can’t it do these days? Well you can add another string to its bow because it not only works at keeping you dry it also adsorbs odour. Double thumbs up.
Olive Leaf Extract - One of nature’s most powerful antibacterial, antifungal and antioxidant plants. Smelly, sweat-munching bacteria are no match for this gift from mother nature. It boosts Mellow’s BO preventing power so a masking fragrance is not required.
These superstars are joining the much loved old gang of Kaolin clay, zinc and Tapioca starch to make Woohoo Mellow a worthy addition the the Woohoo family.
Where oh where are the essential oils?
NOWHERE :) In most natural deodorants essential oils play a pretty big role in helping stop body odour but we managed to create this incredibly effective deodorant without them.
If you know us at all, you'll know we have a love affair with essential oils but we had a few good reasons not to use them in Woohoo Mellow.
Mellow has a very gentle coconut oil aroma that disappears as soon as it's rubbed into your skin. No lingering scent. You just smell like you. In a good way!
With clean, dry hands use the tip of your index finger collect to a pea sized amount of deodorant and warm it in your fingertips. Rub it under your arm until it disappears (just like you would a moisturiser). P.S. If you’re used to using an antiperspirant, please remember that this isn’t one! This deodorant works by neutralising odour and keeps you dryer by absorbing moisture, but it DOESN’T block your pores with aluminium to stop you from sweating. It can take a couple of weeks for your body to adjust to this type of deodorant but it’s worth the wait!
