SUSTAINABLE LIVING - Toxin-Free Personal Hygiene With The All-Natural Cacao Pow Deo Bar
27th January 2020
The dangers of conventional deodorants (most notably their aluminium content and its role in many chronic and degenerative conditions) are slowly becoming more apparent, so more people are looking to make the change to toxin-free products. I myself have tried many over the years, with varying degrees of success, if I'm honest. One ingredient I know I can't do without is bicarbonate of soda. But even in natural formulations, there can be ingredients that those with the most sensitive skin could react to (some essential oils being a familiar culprit).
That's why the 'less is more' nature of the Cacao Pow Deo Bar piqued my curiosity. It contains just 3 ingredients in just the right ratio, designed for maximum effectiveness with no unnecessary additions. For its moisturising effect and delightful scent, they use a 100% organic cacao butter which is sourced from a Peruvian co-operative. Bicarbonate of soda has many therapeutic benefits as well as being a powerful deodoriser so a must in a powerful formula. A very small amount of zinc oxide is used to calm more sensitive skins. And that's all!
This solid natural deodorant is packaged in a little glass jar. Company founder and chief product make, Tonya, believes that all companies should take responsibility for their own waste. So you can even return the glass jar once you've finished with a collection of 4 bars (which I'm assured takes many, many months to use up!), and you'll get money off your next order, as well as tackling plastic waste.
