Why do we refer to “hippy deodorants” as those that don’t contain harmful chemicals to our body or the environment? Unfortunately, by not being hippy we are creating toxicity within us. Maybe it is just the non-hippy way to cater to a lifestyle that is depleting in nature and we still have a long way to go with coming to terms to how a hippy lifestyle is extraordinarily beneficial. Or maybe hippy deodorants are called such because they don’t work, and in the end, we just smell like hippies or Europeans. I have tried for years with many products to find a good deodorant that doesn’t negatively affect my body chemistry by absorbing harmful ingredients linked to cancer. I despise the body order smell and the sweat stains on my clothing my body produces and have given up every time, unfortunately, choosing vanity and smelling good over body health and being accepting of the natural process my body produces. It is one of the things I am contradictory about given my dedication to health and wellness in so many other ways. But alas, now there is a real option and it’s called Primal Pit Paste which is the link above!
Primal Pit Paste doesn’t include the nasty ingredients that have been found to be linked to cancer, hormonal imbalance, allergies and immunotoxicity, kidney and liver damage, and overall environmental toxicity. The common ingredients that can cause such awful side effects include parabens (methyl/ethyl/propyl/benzyl/butyl), aluminum compounds (aluminum chlorohydrate, aluminum zirconium, tetrachlorohydrex gly), Silica, Triclosan, Talc, Propylene Glycol, Steareth (which is usually followed by a number), and synthetic fragrances.
I was extremely cynical when my brother recommended me to try the paste. It sat on my shelf for months and then one day I tried it. Upon trying it for the first time I swore that I would never use it again as I really don’t like armpits and in order to apply it, if you only have the jar of paste, is by putting it on your fingers and rubbing it lightly into your arm pit. Yuck, I don’t ever want to touch my armpits and actually have had a weird phobia in the past of sharing deodorants (weirdly, I’d rather share a toothbrush than a deodorant). Even with me cringing and putting it on in a half ass nature I went about my day. About midway through my day I realized that I smelled great and wasn’t sweating how I might normally have been. I became obsessed with constantly checking my armpit. I am very sensitive to body order and pit stains so I was pleasantly surprised that after such scrutinized behavior of them I kept being satisfied. And not only did it work in a satisfactory way it worked better and longer than any other deodorant that I had used in the past. Minimal application can last definitely beyond one day as comparatively, I had gotten used to applying normal deodorant many times a day. My first application was weeks ago and since then I have only used this product and ordered some of the other scents and the application stick to see if I can avoid touching my arm pits. I have actually gotten used to rubbing the paste into my arm pits and it doesn’t gross me out anymore but if they have a stick why not try it out.
The only thing that enormously helped this process (and as a man especially) was to trim down my armpit hair. For the first few applications, the rubbing friction created by me rubbing the paste into my armpit caused uncomfortable irritation and tanglement of my hair there. With the hair trimmed down this was not a problem. I also recommend buying the tiny little sampler jars to see which scents and kinds you like the best. So far I like the Orange Creamsicle one as it is a pleasant sweet smell but also very mild and something I hardly ever notice throughout the day. The other, rather pleasant outcome with using the paste was the health of my shirts. By not applying normal deodorant my shirts are not getting stained and infiltrated with chemicals and aluminum which is usually what ruins a lot of my shirts. Also, I am not sweating as much so the shirts are not getting as stanky smelly as a result. I foresee that a lot of my shirts will not be as chemically nasty or body order nasty now and last much longer now. The world is your oyster with Primarl Pit Paste:)
The ingredients are all super clean and environmentally friendly and you should check them out here http://primalpitpaste.com/primal-ingredients-1/. And equally as important is they don’t test on animals. Overall, this is a golden product and for your body health and the environment and I highly recommend using Primal Pit Paste. The deodorants we have been exposed to for generations are highly toxic and we are entering an era where we question the normalcy of such products in the attempt of moving forward in a more positive, healthy, and conscious direction.
