The knowledge that the chemicals we put on our body can be absorbed through the skin and enter our bloodstream has lead me on a search for a natural deodorant that’s not only safe to use, but also actually works.
And I’ve hit the jackpot — aah, the sweet smell of success! Erbaviva offers two different blends of 100% USDA certified organic deodorant; each has a lovely scent, and is very effective. Mixed with a base of organic grain alcohol, and available as either Sage & Lemon or Jasmine & Grapefruit — they contain no chemicals, synthetic preservatives, colorants, fillers, and most importantly, no aluminum. These powerful elixirs with organic essential oils at their core, score on all fronts; they neutralize odor, combat bacteria and don’t clog pores.
Having received official USDA organic certification this past January, erbaviva’s founder, Robin Brown, tells us: “While our company has been producing true organic products — completely free from pollutants, pesticides, artificial fertilizers, harsh detergents, chemical fragrances and other unhealthy additives since our inception more than a decade ago, we are pleased to be one of the few skincare companies that now has the official certification of organic purity from the US government. It reinforces our company’s mission of producing a quality product that our customers can trust is pure and natural, ethically and ecologically sound, while protecting the environment.“
Hand-made and uniquely packaged in recyclable bottles and containers, erbaviva’s certified organic collections are freshly made in their Southern California facility. With their soothing Aromatherapy, Mommy-to-Be, Baby, Bath & Body, and Spa lines created from some of the purest organic ingredients in the world, A-listers Gwen Stefani, Nicole Kidman, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Sharon Stone, Ellen DeGeneres, Sinead O’Connor, Uma, Gwyneth, Tea Leoni and David Duchovney embrace erbaviva with open arms.
and the get…
Lemon & Sage or Jasmine & Grapefruit, available in a brown glass 3.4 fl oz spray for $16. (It may cost more than your typical deodorant, but this is not your typical deodorant; and it will serve you for many weeks.) Also available in an amber PET 1 oz travel-size spray for $6.
