Looking for a natural cream deodorant that works? If so, you may want to check out this Prebiotic Deodorant Paste from the Canadian brand etee (which stands for 'Everything Touches Everything Else').
The Oshawa, Ontario based company's Prebiotic Deodorant Paste comes in a 70 g. glass jar, is aluminum-free and lightly scented with a blend of bergamot pine and citrus. It is made of natural ingredients and prebiotics.
Prebiotics combat odor by feeding ‘microbiota’ (the naturally occurring bacteria under your arms). It's an active ingredient instead of fatty acids and the result creates less malodorous molecules so you stink less.. By using these natural ingredients instead of the chemicals found in regular deodorants your sweat glands will not clog up, allowing the prebiotics to fully do their job. It is also enriched with shea butter to help keep your pits soft and smooth.
Why Deodorant Paste?
The etee company opted for a paste format because their research found that the paste format was more effective than a traditional stick.
Why? It seems to be because of the higher melting point required to keep the stick solid. The lower melting point of a paste or lotion allows the ingredients to absorb more easily into your skin and do their thing to keep you fresh all day.
They also chose to ditch the PEG and baking soda in this one - common ingredients found in leading deodorants known to cause skin irritation.
***Please note: This is a deodorant, not an antiperspirant - so a feeling of ‘wetness’ is normal. Bamboo spoon in the photo is not included.***
