The smelly funk. No one wants it, but it is a natural occurrence with our bodies. We live, we sweat, and with the sweat comes odor. To combat this we take showers and use products to help with that issue.
I was given the chance to try out three products from the company Naturally Fresh Deodorant Crystal.
Product Information (products I was sent):
Naturally Fresh Deodorant Crystal Roll-On: Contains Aqua, Natural Mineral Salts, Zinc Ricinoleate, Xanthan Gum, Chamomile Extract and Phenoxyethanol. It is Hypoallergenic, Paraben/PG Free and Fragrance Free.
Naturally Fresh Spray Mist Body Deodorant: Contains Aqua and Natural Mineral Salts. Also Hypoallergenic, Fragrance Free, Paraben/PG Free and No Aluminum Chlorohydrate.
MoistStic Natural Lip Protection w/ Tea Tree Oil ~ Cruelty Free. Contains: Coconut Oil, Beeswax, Lanolin, Peppermint Oil, Vitamin E and Tea Tree Oil.
All these products are made in the USA.
Company Information Naturally Fresh Deodorant Crystal started in 1991 in Pompano Beach, FL. Their products are healthy and natural compared to the conventional deodorants on the market today. The company, founded by Ted and Cathy Alflen, have spent years researching to come up with products are are 100% natural.
With approximately 10% of the population not able to use conventional deodorants these products can be an alternative solution.
I have to say my interest was piqued when it came to these products. I don't like to have a funky odor, ever, and when I read that they were all natural with no harmful contents and of course, made here in the wonderful USA, I knew I wanted to try them.
I must say up front though, that of right now I am still battling bronchitis and have been running a fever, thus sweating, A LOT, so these products were going to have to really work overtime to help me out of that "funk."
I have been using the MoistStic since it arrived. I do have to say that this product works great. My lips have been so dry and chapped from being sick and this lip product really helped me out. The mixture of the natural ingredients in this really works. It helped with the chapping and kept them from cracking anymore. I would definitely recommend this product.
As for the Spray Mist Deodorant and the Roll-On Deodorant, like I said, they probably didn't have a chance. As noted: It does claim that because everyone's body is completely different sometimes the product works immediately and sometimes it can take up to 2-3 weeks before your body adjusts to it. Also, you have to remember that these products are not antiperspirants, so you will continue to sweat (I did, fever . . . ) but you just won't have the underarm odor that comes with it. The products also state that they can work for up to 24 hours of protection.
I actually found that the Roll-On Deodorant did a decent job, considering what my body has been going through. It did take away that immediate odor, it didn't last the full 24 hours, but that is understandable. Same with the Spray Mist. Oh, by the way, the Spray Mist does double duty, you can also use it on your feet!!!! YAY!!!! It didn't last the full 24, but it did work for a while and it worked much better on my feet.
I do like these products as well and would recommend them. I want to be able to give them a good chance when I'm no longer sick and running a fever, thus sweating up a storm., as I love to find new products that are all natural that do not put a hurting on our bodies.
