The Natural Deodorant We Use

We’re obviously all about cutting out processed food on this blog, but once you’re done “cleaning up” things in your kitchen, it’s hard not to move on to other areas of your house—including your bathroom! From cleaning products to skincare to deodorants, there’s a lot of room for opportunity. After all, isn’t what we put on our body as important as what we put in it?

I first attempted to switch to a more natural (roll on) deodorant not long after we cleaned up our diets. Yet, whenever there was any chance I might break a sweat, I found myself still reaching for my old conventional stick. I wasn’t confident a natural deodorant would work for me due to concerns of non-performance, irritation, and breakouts. Fast forward a couple years, and Kiran (on our team) kept telling me how well Pretty Frank (one of our very first sponsors and also the sponsor of today’s post) worked for her. So I finally took her word for it and have never looked back!

Pretty Frank Natural Deodorant

This might be TMI, but right after I made the switch to Pretty Frank I went to a movie with a friend where I got a little teary and, as a result, sweaty. My first thought was, “Good, I can see how well this Pretty Frank stuff really works.” Ha! Long story short, it totally did the trick and gave me the confidence that I could rely on it any time.

Recently, after year’s of use, Kiran actually had a breakout. Her armpits became irritated, so she called the team at Pretty Frank. With the understanding that our body chemistry varies and there is not a one size fits all, they worked with Kiran to get her into the right solution, switching her from baking soda formula to a milder more soothing magnesium formula. They have a solution for “every body.”

Five Great Formulas For Your Body Chemistry

Some bodies react to ingredients in natural deodorants. No worries! As I said, Kiran had a reaction and the team at Pretty Frank helped her through her transition. Have an issue, question or reaction to your deodorant? Contact them! They have the answers and will help you transition into the formula that is right for your body chemistry!

  • Baking Soda
    The first line of defense in natural deodorant, baking soda is the creme-de-la-creme in combatting the stinkies.
  • Charcoal
    Activated charcoal, used in the Daily Detox Deodorant, works to absorb out the impurities and build-up that has accumulated from months or even years of antiperspirant use. Meanwhile, the magnesium hydroxide slays the odor before it has time to settle in.
  • Magnesium
    Some people’s bodies are sensitive to baking soda, which makes Pretty Frank’s Sensitive Stick (made with magnesium) the perfect solution for their needs.
  • Zinc
    Zinc has been used for medicinal purposes for more than 2,000 years.  It is a natural mineral that is effective in combating body odor.
  • Witch Hazel
    Witch hazel is a natural astringent and contains beneficial natural ingredients as well as antibacterial properties.

More About Pretty Frank

Pretty Frank was started by Amy Perez who, as you may be able to relate, was seeking a natural and safe personal care product that actually worked. When one of her young daughters came home with noticeable body odor, the importance of “safe” became that much greater. But Amy’s research also unearthed more concerns. “After finding out that aluminum and parabens are found in the outer quadrant of the breast tissue of cancer patients, I was very concerned,” she says. Thus, the story of Pretty Frank began.

Pretty Frank has also been one of our long-time sponsors since they began with one simple formula that was in a jar. They have now expanded to offer five different formulations in three different mediums—each of them come in a jar, stick or pump. So no matter your needs–lots of protection, sensitive skin, or even for the younger crowd–they have a solution!

  1. After having tried a few different natural deoderants I have yet to find one I love so this post is perfectly timed for me to try a new option. Any thoughts on the jars vs. sticks? Also any scents you love? Thanks!

    1. I hope you find one you like. I personally have the unscented stick, because I’m not one for my pits smelling like fruit or flowers, but also have the black detox stick that I use at night. It’s all personal preference :) – Nicole

    1. Oh no! I know they say to wait about 3-5 minutes after application before getting dressed. If that’s the issue, I would contact them for more information.

  2. How does this work for perspiration? I know most natural deodorants don’t help which is my biggest problem. Pit stains are icky!

    1. Hi! It actually allows your body to detoxify naturally, while at the same time, controlling perspiration to leave you feeling cool and dry.
