Bare Organics, a company we've featured before, has just come out with a collection of deodorants to add to their personal care line. I was glad to be one of the "guinea pigs" to try it out!
The company's mission is:
to do our part to reduce humankind's ecological footprint by empowering and encouraging consumers to:
•Reduce the over-consumption of unnecessary personal care products;
•Make informed purchasing decisions, and;
•To choose all-natural, organic skin care and baby care products.
wonderful baby balm which works great as a diaper ointment. We've used their all-purpose cleanser a lot - as a foaming hand soap, and really liked how it worked, and how it wasn't so drying as other soaps we've used.
Bare Organics' Canadian Shield Deodorant is available in a variety of scents and formats. You can choose from Unscented, Sweet (citrus & lavendar), Woodsy (cedar, patch & lemongrass) and Fresh (mint, tea tree and rosemary). Customers can purchase a sample jar (15g - enough for about 2 weeks, to give it a fair try), a 50g jar (which I received), or a clear twist tube (75g). You just have to take a little bit on your finger - it has the consistency of a thick cream or ointment, and rub it in. The deodorant is so natural it's edible, although apparently it doesn't have a very good taste! :) I really like that it's made from ingredients I recognize and can pronounce.
Bare Organics products are available directly from their website as well as from retailers and online shops across the country.
