I first tried a Zabana Essentials product in a Vegan Cuts box; which was the French Green Clay Facial Bar that turned me on to the wonderful creations created by Shanell. I love that facial bar! Their bath bombs are amazing too. I also really love their Shimmery Dry Shampoo. I did a review here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h3b0JuenTt0.
But that's not why we are here, so let's get on with this pit talk. Have you heard of a Deodorant Detox? This is the little description card that comes with the deodorant when you order it.
The company also sells an armpit detox bar to get you started in the process! Boy, do I wish they sold this when I first switched over to natural deodorants. It was a long, hard, sweaty, and odd process, to say the least. But the transition is definitely worth it. I would rather be a sweaty mess than have aluminum toxins floating around in my body, clogging my armpit pores. Not to mention the fake fragrances that are stored in these mainstream deodorants. ZE uses essential oils which are natural, and do not come from a synthetic component.
Take a look at the ingredients: *Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Simmondsia (Jojoba) Chinensis Oil, Vitis (Grapeseed) Vinifera
Oil, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Zinc Oxide, *Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel), Bentonite Clay, Sodium Bicarbonate, Curcuma Angustifolia (Arrowroot) Powder, Essential Oils
I feel the deodorant has the perfect combination in ingredients. The clay balances the oils, and vice versa. I have tried a handful of natural deodorants, and this one is definitely top three. Plus the scent, oh my goodness! I wish I could plant an artificial nose through the screen so anyone reading could smell the deodorant. I get compliments on my "scent" every time I wear this deodorant. Most people think I am wearing an essential of lemongrass, which is a definite compliment (to me at least). Even though others can smell it, I don't think it is overpowering.
You can get their 2 oz for $10.95, or a mini .35 oz for $5.95. They also offer baking soda free deodorants, for those who are sensitive to it. Here is where you can purchase the deodorant: http://www.zabanaessentials.com/collections/minis/products/deo
