Over the last decade, I have searched high and low to find a natural deodorant that would actually last more than two hours. I would always be disappointed and go back to my usual deodorant/antipersperant that was chock full of chemicals. I tried everything, including touching up during the day, etc.  

The other day, I was at my health food store when I spotted “Tom’s of Main long lasting care 12 hour long lasting odor protection” on the shelf. It is aluminum free, made with all natural ingredients. The secret ingredients are hops and zinc ricinoleate. Hops naturally inhibits the odor offending bacteria and zinc ricinoleate helps to prevent odor from developing. Available scents are apricot, lavendar,lemongrass as well as unscented. With much caution, I threw it in my cart, hoping I wasn’t wasting my money.

Coincidentally, later that day, I learned that the best time to put on deodorant is at night, after a shower (9 PM to be precise). I took my usual nightly scrub down and put on my new deodorant. I got up in the morning, performed a little sniff test and was pleasantly suprized that I was still fresh. I touched up my my application and got ready for my busy day. Throughout the day I performed my sniff test and was pleasantly suprized. It really worked!

I have now been using my new deodorant for a week and wanted to share this amazing product with those of you who would prefer to go to a more natural deodorant that holds up to a busy life.
