FRESCA NATURAL DEODORANT IN VALLEY ROSE
Wow. Somehow, after years and years of searching, I feel that I've finally found a fantastic natural deodorant that actually really works. This coming from a girl who is always hot and often perspiring.
Yes, I have something called hyperhydrosis, which, in a nutshell, means that my internal temperature gauge is off. Whereas you can probably leave a room that's a good temperature and go into a slightly warmer one without getting all heated up, I can't. I'll immediately start perspiring. So, it shouldn't be a surprise to anyone as to why I've been on the search for a super hard-working, natural deodorant for so long. As many of you know, finding one that works is near to impossible.
So, a few weeks ago I saw a review of Fresca Natural Deodorant. I had never heard of the brand and quickly went about trying to learn more about the line. The founder, Elda Kingston is an incredibly warm woman who has truly created a fantastic line of deodorants. I've been using the Valley Rose scent this week and I've been through a lot: a full day of helping my friend move into a new store in NYC, a serious Pilates class, several meetings where I'm pitching a TV show and several fast-paced trips from the East Village to the West Village in the heat...I still smell like roses. I am shocked.
The line, which is probably why I hadn't heard of it, is located in Australia. Now, initially I thought this might be a problem for many readers until I saw that shipping is free with the purchase of three of these deodorants which are $15 each.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
"The active ingredient that makes Fresca Natural deodorants work so well is the inclusion of a special aerated salt (nahcolite or sodium bicarbonate). This special salt creates a non-acidic environment in which bacteria cannot thrive, and is the reason that you do not smell any body odour. It will allow your body to cool itself the way nature intended and does not block your pores."
Jaisara (jasmine & ylang ylang)
Ocean (clean and crisp)
Valley Rose (if you like rose...you'll love)
Wooden Spice (sandalwood, cedar wood)
Let's talk ingredients...from their site:
"Fresca Natural deodorant is hand-made from food grade ingredients of purified water, vegetable gum and an aerated salt (sodium bicarbonate base mineral salt) which is then blended with the highest quality essential oils.
It is body friendly and contains NO aluminium, NO alcohol, NO parabens, NO synthetics, NO nasty chemicals, NO artificial fragrances or preservatives.
Our products are vegan friendly and contain NO PALM OIL. Fresca Natural deodorants are 100% ALL NATURAL."
So, if any of you are struggling to find a working natural deodorant, I hope you'll try out Fresca. If it worked for me, I can only imagine how it'll work for someone who doesn't have any big issues with perspiration. Oh, and Fresca is the winner for Best Natural Deodorant 2012 from Nature & Health Natural Beauty Awards...pretty cool, eh?
