When I was pregnant with Crosby I became much more aware of the chemicals that are in most household cleaning products. I made a conscious effort to switch to more natural products because I didn’t want my house to be full of chemicals for us all to inhale. Then when she was born it dawned on me that I was using a lot of products on my body that were just as bad. I began researching clean beauty items to switch to… and I started with deodorant.
Kopari was one of the first I found that seemed to check all the boxes. Non-toxic, aluminum free, baking soda free, odor protection, goes on clear, long-lasting (one stick usually lasts me 3-4 months)…. the list goes on. Other benefits are that it smells amazing, it’s great for sensitive skin and best of all is that it’s 100% risk free. Meaning if you buy it and don’t love it you can send it back for a refund.
However, when you first make the switch to natural your body goes through a transition period. I would say to give yourself a good two weeks to try it out. Regular deodorant contains aluminum which clogs your pores so you don’t sweat as much. During the transition your body has to learn to detox all the unnatural ingredients, like aluminum, from your body. I have friends that have switched to a natural deodorant and gotten frustrated because they were sweatier during that transition period. You really have to stick it out. Don’t be discouraged if you need to reapply Kopari a few times a day while you’re detoxing, just give it a little time.
I also think fall is the best time of year to make the switch. Your body is traditionally sweating less which makes it a little easier to get used to.
I’ve loved Kopari products for years! Some of my other favorites are this coconut melt, lip gloss, face oil, cleansing oil and face cream. This Beauty Besties kit is a great way to try out the products if you haven’t yet… and it’s a steal!
Another note, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and Kopari will donate $1 for every unit sold! How amazing is that?! To learn more about #TheTruthStinks Campaign you can watch their video (linked here).
