Today’s feature is an amazing deodorant product by natural beauty brand Rustic Maka! It’s an all-natural roll-on deodorant that keeps the body smelling nice without the use of toxic or carcinogenic ingredients, such as aluminum and parabens. It’s quickly become a new favorite deodorant of mine, for its easy application, skin-soothing properties, and high effectiveness in keeping body odor at bay.
Rustic Maka’s Pachy Deodorant in ‘Citrus Gardens’ is a lemongrass lover’s dream come true. For anyone who loves to perfume themselves with pure lemongrass essential oil, this deodorant is a real treat! The main scent profile is lemongrass (via lemongrass essential oil), which is an uplifting, refreshing and energizing aroma that has so many aromatherapy benefits too!
This toxin-free, cruelty-free, vegan and USA-made deodorant is formulated without aluminum, parabens, synthetic fragrances, or propylene-glycol. Just check out these fantastic all-natural ingredients:
Manihot Esculenta (Arrowroot) Tapioca Powder*, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) Fruit*, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil*, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax**, Cymbopogon Flexuosus (Lemongrass) Oil, Saliva Officinalis (Sage) Oil, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Oil
*Certified Organic Ingredient, **Wildcrafted Ingredient
Rustic Maka makes most of their deodorants with baking soda as an odor-fighting ingredient, but this Sensitive ‘Citrus Gardens’ version is made without baking soda, which is an occasional irritant for people with very sensitive skin. It’s wonderful that Rustic Maka has offered this baking soda free option for those select few individuals. What is most impressive about this baking soda free version is how effective it is. Most natural deodorants that I have tried that do not contain baking soda tend to be much less effective. But Rustic Maka has created an amazing formulation that keeps your underarms smelling fresh all day. This deodorant was tested in a Southern California heat spell, while touring Disneyland California all day, and while hiking Southern California’s mountains. This deodorant worked without re-application, all day, for both those occasions, when sweating and heavy exercise were definitely happening!
Another plus of this deodorant is the moisturizing benefit. It’s wonderful to apply after shaving, and keeps underarms smooth and healthy looking. This is no doubt due to the high quality, skin-nurturing ingredients in this deodorant’s formula.
Rustic Maka offers deodorants in several wonderful scents and also formulates various soap bars, body salts, body scrubs and foaming soaps.
