When I transitioned to a non toxic lifestyle, finding a deodorant free of chemicals but controls BO has been challenging. After five years, I can finally say that I found one that meets my standards. Stinkbug Naturals has been a lifesaver for my husband, Derrek, and myself.
I have always been a “stinky” girl, to the point that I had prescribed antiperspirant when I was in college. I’ve bounced around from brand to brand and found that the most toxic deodorant would cover my smell. Parabens, which are preservatives used in some deodorants and antiperspirants, have been shown to mimic the activity of estrogen in the body’s cells. Too much estrogen in the body can lead to breast cancer. After looking at the many different deodorants in my bathroom drawer, I tossed them all and decided to go without. Ummmmm, my husband kindly let me know that I just couldn’t go without a deodorant.
This started the game of buying different non toxic brands and hoping that they worked. After five years and countless wasted purchases, I finally found one that works. Stinkbug Naturals has been my deodorant of choice for the past six months.
Stinkbug Naturals was created and founded by the husband and wife team of Ben and Jade Bower and is located just outside Pittsburgh, PA. The creation of Stinkbug Naturals began when Jade became pregnant and set out on a mission to avoid man-made chemicals. So, she decided to design her own natural alternative to standard health care products.
They take pride in offering a simply raw product made from organic, Non-GMO, Aluminum-Free ingredients.
I personally love the Patchouli scented deodorant stink and Derrek uses the Pine Cone. I just received the Atomic scent and I must say, it’s quickly becoming my favorite. They also have unscented sticks for everyone that doesn’t want to have a scent to their deodorant.
I’ve teamed up with them to not only give my followers 25% off their purchase with code: southernwife but to giveaway a subscription style box including a variety of their products. Three deodorants, a lip balm, a clean hands gel, and both scents of our travel size cream deodorant. Head over to my Instagram to enter!
