I can say with all honesty that for me, finding a natural deodorant that that works is a really tough task. So when I was given the opportunity to trial and review Black Chicken Axilla Deodorant Paste I was skeptical to say the least.
I loved the fact that the deodorant paste is made from only natural ingredients and that it still lets you sweat while wearing. I have been aware of the potential carcinogens in traditional deodorants for quite some time now and it bothers me greatly what I use on my body especially so close to the lymph nodes. Finding a deodorant that works can be really hit and miss. The problem with most deodorants, natural or otherwise, is that they don’t work!
Now I’m not a smelly person so I don’t wear deodorant every day. I know your thinking that is a tad gross but I feel there is no need to when you are working from home and our bodies do need time off to detox. Conventional deodorants can contain aluminium, triclosan, parabens, propelyne glycol, fragrance and a few other nasty chemicals that we really need to be looking at avoiding. Just the amount of ingredients in these products should be enough to ring alarm bells. You may argue that there is no conclusive evidence that proves these ingredients are unsafe but I would prefer to try to use less toxins in my skincare and body care products where possible.
Black Chicken Axilla Deodorant Paste gets some amazing online reviews, so what did I think about it?
I have read online that “it is a remedial and chemical free deodorant formulated to neutralise underarm odour instantly and keep you fresh without inhibiting your sweat glands ability to dispel toxins often found in unwanted fat”
I can’t honestly tell you that it does not neutralise odour instantly. I used it for two weeks, during this time I had days where my activity levels varied dramatically. It work well enough on days when I did not overextend my activity levels, eg days sitting at my desk, but on days of exercise and activity I found I had an unpleasant odour. The odour was not the usual smell of perspiration but one of the herbal ingredients of the deodorant and the perspiration mixed. Not good in my personal opinion.
I did notice that if I wore black clothing the deodorant left a white mark, this mark easily came out in the wash. The pot is a healthy 75gm size that would easily last an entire month or longer, so economically it is worthwhile.
The deodorant is made from all natural and organic ingredients, is aluminium, alcohol and paraben free. Black Chicken Axilla Deodorant Paste is also vegan, cruelty-free. Black Chicken Axilla Deodorant Paste does contain EUGENIA CARYOPHYLLUS (Clove Oil), which has been banned by the EU and is restricted in fragrances because it is a known allergen, but I had no allergic reactions to the product.
Would I recommend Black Chicken Axilla Deodorant Paste? Yes if you’re interested in trying a natural deodorant in pace of your existing chemical laden one.
Me personally, I have personally gone back to not wearing deodorant at home and using Payot Deodorant Douceur my tried and trusted ‘chemical laden’ deodorant when I am in need of one.
