This is a 70% certified organic vegan formula thatÂ isÂ not only hypoallergenicÂ but contains noÂ parabens,Â noÂ propylene glycol and noÂ aluminum chlorohydrate.Â At the price of S$10.90, this is definitely worth a buy if it works.Â
And I’m happy to say that it does…for awhile at least!Â Â
I bought the lemongrass and clary sage deodorant stickÂ and to be honest, was skeptical thatÂ its totally natural botanical ingredients canÂ get rid of my armpit odour.Â But it does!Â My underarms wereÂ kept almost freshÂ after a few hours of usage indoors.Â Not bad!
It seems it’s theÂ baking sodaÂ that helped to neutralize the odor.Â And the best part is that this deodorant is residue-free andÂ my armpitÂ doesn’t feel sticky or wet after application.Â Â I had no trouble using it at all.
I haven’t tested itÂ under the scorching sun though.Â But I do realise that its effectiveness is reduced when the weatherÂ gets hotter.Â I supposeÂ if I have to stay out a little longer and perspire more, I may have to apply a little more liberally if I really wantÂ the deodorant to have more staying power.Â We’ll see.Â Â
But for now, I’mÂ rather happy with this andÂ will probably continue to use it for a longer period of time especially when I’m indoors.Â Maybe I’ll alternate it with the more expensiveÂ but more powerful Kiehlâ€™s Superbly Efficient Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant Cream.Â
Nature’s Gate Organics Deodorant is produced without animal testing and with no animal by-products.Â Apart from the lemongrass and clary sage formula I bought, other formulas like tea tree and blue cypress, lavender and aloe, as well as chamomile and lemon verbena are also available and sold at major pharmacies.
