I have tried a few organic or botannical anti-perspirants and deodorants but they usually do not have good staying power. In plain English, they suck. Sukin Organics Deodorant which I reviewed recently performed better but fared badly in terms of usage. So I was really skeptical about Nature’s Gate Organics Fruit Blends Deodorant which was mentioned in Health.com as an organic deodorant that work and leave you smelling sweet.
But girls, they’re right. This deodorant rub on stick which is paraben-free with no aluminum but contains only 100% natural and 70% certified organic, vegetable-derived ingredients does work!
There are a few formulations and the one I bought was Nature’s Gate Organics Fruit Blends Persimmon & Rose Geranium Deodorant Stick. It is gentle and uses a mixture of baking soda and certified organic fruit plus floral and herbal extracts to help neutralize odor with its natural antiseptic and anti-bacterial properties. With no propylene glycol and no aluminum chlorohydrate, this deodorant is totally natural scents and keep our underarms residue-free.
Okay, I wouldn’t say it left me that shower-fresh feeling throughout the day but it achieved 80% of that. I just have to remember to apply LIBERALLY!
Ingredients: Vegetable Glycerin, Certified Organic Rose Geranium (Grown in Accordance with the California Organic Foods Act of 1990), Certified Organic Mint Allplant Essence (Grown in Accordance with the California Organic Foods Act of 1990), Sodium Stearate, Steareth-100, Certified Organic Pomegranate (Certified Organic by ECOCERT), Litchi & Persimmon Extracts (Certified Organic by ECOCERT), Sodium Bicarbonate, Certified Organic Extracts of Mallow (Certified Organic by ECOCERT), Linden (Certified Organic by ECOCERT), Rosemary (Certified Organic by ECOCERT), French Rose (Certified Organic by ECOCERT), Pansy (Certified Organic by ECOCERT), Certified Organic Aloe Vera (Certified Organic by Quality Assurance International), Glyceryl Stearate, Oleic Acid, Stearic Acid, Stearyl Alcohol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sodium Chloride, Fragrance Oils.
Nature’s Gate Organic Fruit Blends is definitely good for those who are worried about paraben preservatives or are sensitive to formaldehyde. I’ve actually tried Nature’s Gate Organics Lemon Grass and Clary Sage but I have to say, go for the fruit blend formula which cost about S$12+.
And those who are concerned about animals would be happy to know that this products is cruelty-free as it is produced without animal testing and with no animal by-products.
Anyway, I’m loving this and will definitely be buying it again.
