Beeswax.

 

The title says it all.  Our little honey producing pollinating friends don’t really need much of an introduction--these guys do it all, soup to nuts.  They fly, make honey (which basically never goes bad), pollinate everything, and produce a nifty little natural gift to us called beeswax.  Basically everything they produce is like magic, and we want to incorporate everything we can from them in the most symbiotic way possible. Bees have had a tough go of it in our post-industrial world, and we want to do everything we can to ensure they can go about their business in the most happy and healthy way possible.  But enough about the love for these amazing little insects, let's talk about things beeswax can actually DO for your human body.

 

Beeswax moisturizes skin--a perfect quality for an organic deodorant.  It inhibits the growth of bacteria, providing a protective layer on the skin to prevent any organisms from finding that warm, dark place they need to thrive.  It aids in the treatment of acne, diaper rash, cracked/dry skin, and fungal infections. Did we forget to mention that it also can help with stretch marks? Not that you need to be rubbing deo on your inner thighs, but it’s not out of the question.

 

Bottom line is, this bacteria inhibiting, moisturizing, all-in-one organic skincare base is the cat’s pajamas.  We like science as much as the next guy, but if it’s not broke, don’t fix it! Beeswax will always be at the heart and soul of our organic deodorant products, because we know those guys got it right the first time.

Aluminium Free

You wouldn’t wear aluminum socks, would you? So why put it in your armpits? Plus, does that stuff cause cancer? JR doesn’t think that’s very cool either way. The only aluminum he likes has domestic beer inside of it.

Paraben Free

Parabens are a group of commonly used preservatives in cosmetic products, including in deodorants. Parabens have been linked to causing infertility in men. JR definitely does not like that one bit. Let’s keep your little guys swimming hard and your pits smelling good.

Polypropylene Free

A flammable gaseous hydrocarbon C3H6 obtained by cracking petroleum hydrocarbons and used chiefly in organic synthesis. Would you put that in your pits?

Baking Soda Free

Baking Soda in deodorant is commonly known to cause rashes, itchy/dry pits, discoloration, and can even cause breakouts. Basically the alkaline properties of baking soda will have a chemical reaction with your naturally acidic skin bits. Over time this damages the skin and leaves you susceptible to sores and infections. Just more stuff that has no business being on your body
