I would like to humbly introduce to you my favorite new vegan deodorant line, Humble. If you have suffered finding a natural, clean, and non-toxic deodorant that ACTUALLY works, this ones for you! The Humble Brand carries an array of products such as lip balms, a topical CBD balm for the body, as well as their deodorants in their original formula. Their sensitive+vegan line of deodorant carries five different scents and have only 4 simple ingredients.
The first thing I noticed in the formula is that they do not use baking soda. Why is that important and set them apart from other natural brands? It’s because baking soda is super irritating for sensitive skin and can cause slight burns and rashes. My experience in the past with natural deodorants hasn’t been so lucky, that I’ve even considered stopped wearing it at all until I discovered this one. My underarms are not irritated, and it has kept me smelling fresh on my ten hour work days. Wear black clothes? No embarrassing white streak marks either! Impressive to say the least.
lets take a look at the ingredients:
Caprylic/Capric triglycerides- fractionated coconut oil
zea mays starch- non gmo corn starch
wild-harvested euphorbia cerifera- candelilla wax
plus lavender flower essential oil
Studies have shown that Magnesium Hydroxide does not absorb into the skin. Instead, its main purpose in a natural deodorant is to counteract any odor-causing bacteria on the surface of the skin without impacting the dermis – the layer of skin where sweat glands, pores and hair follicles are contained. Non-GMO con-starch helps absorb moisture that gets trapped on the skin. The Fractionated Coconut oil in the formula is antibacterial and protects you for odor causing bacteria. Candelilla has many benefits, including serving as a thickening and hardening agent, a synthetics-free emollient and nourishing skin conditioner. Not only effective in binding ingredients, but the unique quality of Candelilla wax also makes it safe for skin. also been found to soothe and soften the skin.
