Schmidt’s Naturals Product Review

A week ago I received in the mail some awesome products from Schmidt’s Naturals to review in exchange for an honest review.  I received two bars of bar soap, three deodorants, and two of their new tooth & mouth paste.  For the past week I have used each everyday, and I’m so excited to share with you my review.

Before I dive into the review though, I do want to touch on something briefly.  Schmidt’s Naturals has recently been in the news due to Unilever acquiring the company in 2018.  I know a lot of people are up in arms about this, and think this is a horrible decision.  I have also read Schmidt’s Naturals stance on being acquired by Unilever, and this is what I believe.

Schmidt’s Naturals has built up an amazing reputation for being an all-natural company committed to what they called “ingredients first” which means that they avoid all controversial and filler ingredients and only use natural ingredients and pure essential oils.  All Schmidt’s Naturals products are free of:

  • aluminum
  • propylene glycol
  • SLS
  • parabens
  • phthalates
  • artificial fragrance
  • artificial flavor
  • artificial colorants
  • artificial sweeteners

Their products are also vegan and Schmidt’s never tests on animals.  They are completely cruelty free.  So, saying all this, I don’t believe Schmidt’s will change their stance or any of their product formulations because they have been acquired by Unilever.  I honestly don’t believe anything will change with the company, or with Schmidt’s commitment to pure products.

Saying all this, what follows is my unbiased review of Schmidt’s Naturals products as they are formulated right now.  I have never tried Schmidt’s products before, and I am now totally in love with their deodorants, bar soap, and new toothpaste.

Bar Soap

Schmidt’s sent me two bar soaps to review.  Bergamot & Lime was my favorite, and my husband’s favorite was Cedarwood & Juniper.  The best part about their soaps, besides the fact that both smell AMAZING, is that they are non-detergent based, and entirely derived from plants which means they are not only good for your skin, but good for your body too!  Not to mention super gentle, even for the most delicate of skin.

Schmidt’s Bergamot & Lime Natural Soap for face and body smells amazing!  And it’s super moisturizing!  I have sensitive skin, and I had zero problems using this soap.  It lathers up really nicely, and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth!  You feel like you’re in a spa when you shower with it.  The scent just envelopes you.  I would describe the scent as mainly citrusy, but also a little spicy.  I am totally in love with the scent.  And, did I mention that it includes exfoliating orange peel too?  Using this soap feels so good on your skin.

Ingredients: 

  • Sodium Palmate (sustainably harvested)
  • Sodium Palm Kernelate (sustainably harvested)
  • Water
  • Glycerin
  • Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Peel Oil
  • Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter
  • Sodium Gluconate
  • Citrus Aurantifolia (Lime) Oil
  • Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel
  • Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) Root Powder
  • Chlorophyllin-Copper Complex

My husband was so excited when he saw the Cedarwood & Juniper Natural Soap for face and body.  He absolutely LOVES the scent of Cedarwood, and was so excited to try this out.  But, before he got a hold of it, I made sure to test it first.  The first day I got the soap I used it to wash my face.  I love that it contains Charcoal and Exfoliating Volcanic Sand.  Activated Charcoal is AMAZING for your skin and has so many benefits including absorbing dirt, toxins, and oil.  This is an AMAZING soap to use on your face, and left my skin feeling so soft and so nurtured!  The Cedarwood & Juniper soap has a very earthy scent.  I think it’s great for men, as well as woman that like earthy scents.  My husband loves this soap and said he found it very moisturizing as well.

Ingredients:

  • Sodium Palmate (sustainably harvested)
  • Sodium Palm Kernelate (sustainably harvested)
  • Water
  • Glycerin
  • Cedrus Deodara Wood Oil
  • Activated Charcoal Powder (Bamboo-Derived)
  • Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter
  • Sodium Gluconate
  • Volcanic Sand
  • Juniperus Communis Fruit Oil
  • Kaolinite

One thing that I found super awesome with the bar soaps is that when you use them in the shower to wash your body, the scent lasts all day on your skin.  The scent doesn’t just fade away which I think is amazing.  You don’t find that with many soaps.

Schmidt’s also offers other bar soap scents such as:

  • Rose & Vanilla with exfoliating Vanilla Bean
  • Lavender & Sage with exfoliating Jojoba Seed
  • Ylang-Ylang & Calendula with exfoliating Apricot Seed

Schmidt’s Naturals Bar Soaps are $5.49 each or you can buy the soap in 5 bar multi-packs for $24.99.  Another option is you can set-up a subscription so you never run out of your favorite products.

Tooth & Mouth Paste

I was so excited when I saw Schmidt’s released their own Tooth & Mouth Paste.  This is a really new product, and I am always looking for all-natural toothpaste options.  Schmidt’s new Tooth & Mouth Pastes are formulated with added vitamins, organic aloe leaf, and superfood extracts.  They do not contain SLS, Fluoride, or Artificial Flavors.

V02_schmidts_toothpaste_box_1000x1000_activated_charcoal_1000x1000

My husband and I LOVE LOVE LOVE Schmidt’s Activated Wondermint Charcoal Tooth & Mouth Paste.  Activated Charcoal is super amazing for cleaning and whitening your teeth.  My husband and I have tried various other all-natural Activated Charcoal toothpastes in the past and none compare to Schmidt’s.  Usually, Activated Charcoal toothpastes make your teeth completely black, and you have to rinse numerous times to get it off your teeth.  This is not the case with Schmidt’s Activated Charcoal Tooth & Mouth Paste.  It is super gentle, it cleans your teeth so well, and does not turn your mouth and teeth black.  It also tastes so good.  Not over powering at all or too sweet.  Since I have only been using this for a week, I can’t comment on it’s whitening power, but so far both my husband and I absolutely LOVE this toothpaste.  I HIGHLY recommend it if you are looking for an activated charcoal toothpaste to use.

Ingredients:

  • Water
  • Hydrated silica
  • Glycerin
  • Xylitol
  • Calcium carbonate
  • Dicalcium phosphate
  • Magnolia acuminate bark extract
  • Sodium phosphate
  • Zinc citrate
  • Aloe barbadensis leaf juice
  • Stevia rebaudiana leaf/stem powder
  • Melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree) leaf oil
  • Lyceum barbarum (goji berry) fruit extract
  • Punica granatum (pomegranate) extract
  • Ubiquinone (Coenzyme Q10)
  • Tocopherol (Vitamin E, sunflower derived)
  • Natural Flavor
  • Charcoal Powder
  • Xanthan gum
  • Sodium methyl cocoyl taurate
  • Sodium Benzoate

I was so unsure of Vanilla Chai toothpaste.  What would it taste like?  Would it taste good?  The answer is YES!  It is not minty and does not have an overwhelming vanilla taste.  It has a refreshing taste that is not too sweet at all, and tastes really good with accents of cardamom, ginger, and clove.  I love alternating between the Charcoal Toothpaste and the Vanilla Chai.  I will usually use the Vanilla Chai in the morning and the Charcoal Toothpaste at night.  After my husband tried this toothpaste he too commented on how good it tasted.  I highly recommend this flavor.

Schmidt’s Naturals Tooth & Mouth Pastes are truly an amazing addition to their product line.  You can bet my husband and I will be buying these for a long time.  They clean so well, leave your mouth and breath feeling fresh, and the best part is they are all-natural.  I have to say these are the best all-natural toothpastes we have ever tried and I highly highly recommend them.

Currently in the product line there are three flavors of Tooth & Mouth Paste: Wondermint, Vanilla Chai, and Wondermint Charcoal.

Schmidt’s Naturals Tooth & Mouth Pastes sell for $5.99 each.  You can also buy a 3-pack for $14.99, or get a subscription so you never run out.

Deodorants

I have tried TONS of all-natural deodorants.  For some odd reason I had never tried Schmidt’s Naturals before, and I am so happy I finally got a chance to try them.  In my search for great all-natural deodorants, I wish I had tried Schmidt’s sooner.  Not only do they smell amazing, are all-natural, and good for you, they also actually WORK.  And not just for a few hours, but all day!

Schmidt’s Naturals offers many sensitive skin formulas which is great for me as I have super sensitive skin.  Deodorants are available in a stick or jar.  I got to test out the sticks.

Schmidt’s describes their Sensitive Skin Jasmine Tea Formula as “Delicate & Sophisticated” and it is most definitely that, and more.  It smells fresh, clean.  It is not overly flowery.  This is the deodorant that I have been looking for for years!  It is now my new favorite!  It applies easily with no white residue.  And it lasts all day!  A little goes a long way, and it helps absorb wetness naturally.  Schmidt’s sensitive skin formula deodorants do not contain any baking soda, so they are super gentle on your skin.  I am so excited to try more of their sensitive skin formulations.

Ingredients:

  • Magnesium hydroxide
  • Cocos Nucifera (coconut) Oil
  • Maranta arundinacea (arrowroot) powder
  • Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (fractionated coconut oil)
  • Butyrospermum parkii (shea butter)
  • Euphorbia Cerifera (candelilla) Wax
  • Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil
  • Natural fragrance
  • Tocopherol (vitamin E; sunflower-derived)

Now if you’re looking for something fun, festive, and different look no further than Schmidt’s Holiday Spice.  This deodorant is also available in a sensitive skin formulation.  It smells like the holidays.  It smells spicy with notes of orange, cinnamon, and clove.  My husband wore this one on Christmas, and has also been wearing it every day since.  He is an active guy.  If he’s not at work, where he is on his feet all day, he is busy working outside.  He says he found that this deodorant held up all day, no matter what he did or how much he sweated.  And I can attest to this fact.  He always smelled good!  This is a deodorant that worked hard and keeps on working.

Ingredients:

  • Maranta arundinacea (arrowroot) powder
  • Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda)
  • Cocos Nucifera (coconut) Oil
  • Butyrospermum parkii (shea butter)
  • Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (fractionated coconut oil)
  • Euphorbia Cerifera (candelilla) Wax
  • Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil
  • Magnesium hydroxide
  • Natural fragrance
  • Tocopherol (vitamin E, sunflower derived)

Schmidt’s Deodorants range in price from $8.99 to $10.99.  They offer many different scents, and have tons of sensitive skin formulations to choose from, so you are sure to find one that is just right for you.  Just like with the soaps and toothpastes above, you can buy a bundle pack (5-Pack Signature or Sensitive, Travel-Size 5-Pack in Signature or Sensitive, and Signature Jars 5-Pack).  You can also create a subscription so you never run out.

I also received Schmidt’s Naturals Charcoal & Magnesium Deodorant and I am so excited to try it out, but I didn’t get a chance during the past week.  Starting tomorrow I will start testing out this deodorant and will write a review about it next Thursday.

Schmidt’s Naturals is a wonderful company that offers superb products that are good for you, good for you skin, and even good for the planet!  They offer a recycling club for their deodorant jars!  How awesome is that?!?

Schmidt’s offers a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.  If you are not happy with a purchase, just contact Schmidt’s and they will make it right.

If you are looking for excellent, all-natural products that include bar soaps, toothpastes, and deodorants look no further than Schmidt’s Naturals.  All the products my husband and I have tested this past week we rate 5/5 stars!  Truly amazing products that work!
