When my husband and I switched to an all-natural lifestyle, in a lot of ways it was easy to switch to better-for-you products. For example: soap, shampoo, laundry detergent, dish soap, face and body creams. All of those we started making on our own. But you know what the hardest all-natural product to switch to was? Deodorant. No matter how much we tried, including making our own and trying different organic brands, nothing worked, until a few months ago I found Bubble & Bee Organic.
First off, you might be asking what’s wrong with regular deodorant. I myself didn’t know until I started truly taking an interest in my health and the products I was using. I love this info-graph below because it explains everything that is wrong with regular deodorants.
So, what to do? I started researching all-natural, organic options and it took me 2 1/2 years to finally find a product that works with my body chemistry. Even if it takes awhile, don’t give up. Keep researching, keep trying products.
My journey to finding Bubble & Bee was long. At first I researched other organic brands of deodorant that had great reviews. I would buy different brands of organic deodorants, and I would love them at first, but within weeks I’d develop a painful red rash. Sometimes this is caused by a detox reaction, so I kept trying but the rash never went away. Eventually I found out my rash was caused by baking soda. A lot of organic deodorants use baking soda as one of the main ingredients. Then, I tried making my own deodorant with essential oils, but it was never powerful enough to last throughout the day. Then I tried organic deodorant sprays which I liked, but also they wouldn’t last all day. One day, during my research I came across Bubble & Bee.
Bubble & Bee Organic holds a USDA Organic Certification.
“Other than the peace of mind knowing that there are no harmful synthetics and feeling good that it’s better for your body and the environment, organic certification ensures that what’s *on* the label matches what’s *in* the product.
There is a lot of organic fraud out there in the cosmetics industry. Companies that “greenwash” their products to make them look organic or natural but still sneak in harmful synthetics. Companies that don’t fully disclose their ingredients. Companies that call their product “organic” but lack actual certification. Ingredients that *sound* natural, but are really hidden synthetics.
Tracing each ingredient back to the field
For all our organic products, we keep a detailed paper trail of where each ingredient came from, and who certified it as organic. All of these ingredients have to be grown without synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, and processed without chemicals. For each batch we make, we keep a detailed record of each ingredient, the invoice date, the supplier, the invoice number, and the certifying agency. With organic products, there is an audit trail that can be traced from the batch number on the product, all the way back to the field in which each ingredient was grown.”
Their deodorant also comes with a guarantee!
“Our deodorant comes with an industry-first effectiveness guarantee! We feel it is extremely important to use a truly natural deodorant and not have to resort to harmful chemicals, so we go the extra mile to help you find just the right product!
If the first deodorant you try from us doesn’t work for you to control odor, we’re happy to help you find a second, or even third one that does!
We are confident in our products, test them and use them ourselves every day with no exceptions. Everyone’s body chemistry is different and what is right for you won’t be right for others. Sometimes you’ll get it right on the first try, and sometimes it may take some searching. Whatever the journey is, we will help you along the way to find the perfect product for you!”
The first product I sent for from Bubble & Bee was the 100% Organic Truly Herbal Deodorant Stick. I started with this one because it was beeswax based with no baking soda. I liked it, but it didn’t work with my body chemistry. I remembered about the Deodorant Guarantee and reached out to Bubble & Bee. They were wonderful! They asked questions and gave me suggestions for other deodorants that might work better for me.
I decided on the Limited-Edition Wild Rose Pit Putty Deodorant Cream. I will admit I was nervous because it contains baking soda, but what changed my mind was the description which said:
“A touch of baking soda makes the skin inhospitable to odor-causing bacterial growth, but is used in such a gentle amount that it doesn’t irritate skin like other cream formulas may.”
And you know what? I finally found a deodorant that worked for me! No reactions! Lasted all day! And super gentle on my skin! I have been using the Wild Rose Pit Putty Deodorant Cream for the past few months and absolutely love it! There are many different scents to choose from and I look forward to trying the others in the future.
Wild Rose Pit Putty Deodorant Cream not only smells amazing (not overwhelming at all, just slightly floral and refreshing), but it’s also completely organic with good for you ingredients:
“Organic arrowroot powder, organic shea butter, organic rose scent extract infused in organic sunflower oil, organic coconut oil, baking soda (no aluminum). That’s it! No “Bad” Stuff!”
Isn’t that amazing? Even though it took me awhile to find a deodorant that worked for me, I’m glad I didn’t give up. Bubble & Bee offers many different types of deodorant so you can find the one that works for you. Their deodorants come in stick form, creams and sprays. And with their guarantee, you are sure to find one that will work for you! I only wish I had started with them in the beginning.
And with it being summer, it’s great knowing I have a deodorant that works and is good for me. Bubble & Bee doesn’t just offer deodorants, they also offer facial care products, organic insect repellent, organic lip balms, toothpaste, salt scrubs, soaps, hair care products, etc… They are seriously a one stop shop.
