Organic Deodorant Ingredients Explained
Once the decision to produce a truly USDA certified organic stick is made, the list of available ingredients gets slimmer than moss on a mississippi tree stump. Here is a breakdown of each ingredient used in every quality stick JR pulls from the dirt
We harp on how awesome bees are a lot. For deodorant purposes, beeswax substitutes some of those long words that are in other sticks you see. “Beeswax” is just easier to say than “Propylene-Glycol”, and makes you feel a little better about what's going on your skin and in your pores. That smooth application you get from Farmpit is thanks to our little winged pollinators. Thanks bees, you rock.
Organic Coconut Oil
Coconut oil has a few primary skincare benefits. First and foremost, it has excellent moisturising qualities. It is important to balance the ratios here though, as things can feel greasy quickly if there is too much. Ensuring top quality odor control while keeping the skin moisturized is critical to preventing any eczema or other dry skin conditions. In addition to the skin moisturizing, lauric acid that makes up a big portion of coconut oil. This lauric acid can kill fungus and bacteria.
Organic Corn Starch
Primarily used as a drying agent, corn starch helps keep your sweat contained. Given that we are working with organic deodorant and not anti-perspirant, perspiring will happen when using an organic product. Since we can’t jam paper towels in your pits to keep them dry, a more elegant method was employed to ensure maximum dryness on top of the world class odor protection Farmpit provides. Organic corn starch was selected over the more common baking soda so we can be mindful of those of you with sensitive skin. That, and there’s organic corn growing right there so...we gotta use it right?
Other Ingredients JR is working onThe rumor mill is starting to swell about JR working on some more whole body skincare action to compliment the pits. Murmurs of bar soaps, shower gel and even organic lip hydration sticks are beginning to ripple through the organic soils in JR’s domain. Keep your ear to the ground and your pits to the sticks.
