Do You Think Using a Natural Deodorant Stinks?

Updated: Apr 1, 2021

Some people have run the gamut, trying every natural deodorant on the shelves. Maybe they've scored and found one they like...but many struggle to find something natural that is truly effective. Even deodorants labeled as clean aren't once you give the ingredients a look or learn where + how the ingredients are derived.

What if I told you there's a deodorant that you can feel comfortable using because of its ingredients - AND - confident in wearing because it fights odor-causing bacteria?

Just released at Young Living's International Grand Convention 2019, CinnaFresh and CitraGuard deodorants are some of the newest products to deliver all the benefits of what you'd traditionally buy at the store - without any harsh chemicals. It may seem hard to imagine a deodorant that can actually keep you smelling great without the synthetic ingredients (I feel ya; we've all been on the skeptic end), but these clean and fresh smelling deodorants get the job done without resorting to harsh ingredients and toxic chemicals. Isn't it time you said no to harsh chemicals and made the switch, too?

Why a Toxin-Free Deodorant?

Synthetic ingredients can disturb the skin’s delicate microbiome, leaving your skin vulnerable to external and environmental factors. Why does that matter? The skin microbiome is the ecosystem of microorganisms that live on the skin. A healthy microbiome can protect against bad bacteria and fight against external and environmental factors. So, say you get a nick while shaving. A balanced microbiome helps to prevent infection. Shaving your armpits also leaves small openings you can't even see where harsh chemicals - like parabens and aluminum - enter the body. Lots of lymph nodes are close to the armpits; these are hubs for our immune system, so I'm sure you want to keep them free of toxins, right?

Valor, CinnaFresh, and CitraGuard deodorants are clinically shown to inhibit the growth of odor-causing bacteria and help maintain the balance of the skin microbiome. These deodorants fight odor without disturbing normal perspiration. The terms “deodorant” and “antiperspirant” tend to be used interchangeably, but there is a distinct difference between the two:

  • Deodorant helps lessen the level of daily underarm odor.

  • Antiperspirants typically contain chemical ingredients such as aluminum salts that plug the body’s natural ducts and contract the skin’s pores, synthetically stopping your body's natural detox cycle.

These are some of the many reasons it is important to use a deodorant with clean ingredients. With Young Living’s exclusive formula, you have the protection and confidence you deserve!

Strong Enough to Help Inhibit the Growth of Odor-Causing Bacteria, but Gentle Enough to Not Disturb the Skin’s Microbiome

  • Arrowroot powder to absorb and control body odor-causing bacteria.

  • Mango seed butter and cocoa seed butter to soothe and condition the skin. This formula is much softer than other natural deodorants.

  • Kaolin clay absorbs and control body odor-causing bacteria. It also provides skin protection.

  • Grapefruit seed extract helps function as a natural preservative.

  • Baking soda for additional odor absorption.

Pro Tips + Quick Answers to FAQs

  • This deodorant will start to melt in extreme temperatures. If you live in Arizona, or other very hot environments, we recommend using faster shipping in the summer months to prevent any softening.

  • These deodorants have a completely different formula than the Aromaguard Mountain Mint and Meadow Mist products.

  • CinnaFresh contains Clove, Eucalyptus, Cinnamon Bark, Lemon, and Rosemary essential oils.

  • CitraGuard contains Lemongrass, Thyme, Sage, Tea Tree, Lavender, Geranium, and Lemon essential oils.

  • Valor contains Blue Tansy, Black Spruce, Frankincense, Geranium, and Camphor wood essential oils.
