When it comes to being healthy, we are all trying to avoid putting unhealthy things in our body as well as on our bodies. In this quest, it can be difficult to find a deodorant that is free of chemicals we are trying to avoid.
I recently tried Powdry Powder Deodorant by LUSH. Free of talc (which is considered carcinogenic by some cancer watch dog groups), this powder is an absorbent powder made from corn starch and chickpea flour. It is scented with lemon essential oil, juniper and olibanum (frankincense), ultimately it smells a little like walking in a pine forest, which is a scent that I find refreshing.
Although the powder kept me dry, it was very messy to apply. However, since it is a powder you can apply it just about anywhere you sweat, which is a plus. I do think this product is a great alternative to more conventional deodorants, but it will not keep you perfectly dry, especially if you are prone to heavy sweating.
Buy a 1.7 ounce tin directly from LUSH for $7.95.
