We all want to feel fresh and clean no matter how hectic our schedule is. A quick swipe of deodorant is one way of getting there. And while you may not think much of this seemingly small part of your daily routine, the chemicals lurking in many popular deodorants can have a big effect on your health. Several studies have shown that the chemicals found in many deodorants and antiperspirants, such as aluminum, parabens, and other biological additives, have been linked to bone diseases and dementia as well as irritation and allergic reactions. Our goat milk deodorant is a safer alternative to other deodorants and our natural ingredients are just as effective at keeping you fresh all day long.
What Is All Natural Deodorant?
Our all-natural deodorant piles on the freshness without piling on the chemicals. This means our deodorants contain:
✓ NO aluminum
✓ NO petroleum-based chemicals
✓ NO parabens or phthalates
Many people use antiperspirants to keep themselves smelling great throughout the day. But antiperspirants often use aluminum to block your pores and physically prevent you from sweating, which isn’t good for your skin and may even be detrimental to your health. After all, sweating is our body’s natural way of releasing toxins.
Our chemical-free deodorants use only simple, natural ingredients like coconut oil, arrowroot powder, baking soda, beeswax, shea butter, salt, and dehydrated goat milk. We also have baking soda-free formulations. And because it is a deodorant (and not an antiperspirant), it will not clog your pores or stop your body from detoxing what it doesn’t need.
Benefits of Goat Milk in Your Deodorant
There are many benefits to having goat milk in your deodorant. Goat milk is full of skin-nourishing components like lactic acid, moisturizing fatty acids, and probiotics, which makes it incredibly soothing to the skin. For those who are prone to conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, or simply have sensitive skin, goat milk ensures a gentle approach to maintaining fresh, clean skin without any harsh additives. Goat milk also has antibacterial properties, which help to reduce odor-causing bacteria over time.
Why Buy Goat Milk Deodorant From Us?
Unlike other deodorants that mask body odor with artificial fragrances or antiperspirants that stop you from sweating with aluminum, our aluminum-free Goat Milk Deodorant uses natural ingredients to help neutralize body odor without harming your body. We use dehydrated goat milk and chemical-free ingredients to formulate safe and natural products on our 36-acre family-run farm in Scottsburg, Indiana. We also make sure that all the other ingredients used in our deodorant are just as pure and work effectively alongside the goat milk.
How to Use Goat Milk Deodorant
If you’re ready to try our Goat Milk Deodorant, follow these tips first.
Tip #1 - Try A Sample First
Not sure if switching to natural deodorant is right for you? We offer samples so you can try a small amount before purchasing a full tube. Just choose “sample” from the size options.
Tip #2 - Dab, Don’t Swipe
One of the most common issues folks have with Goat Milk Stuff’s natural deodorant is that they swipe it on like it’s a conventional deodorant. Because it’s made of natural ingredients, it doesn’t have the hard consistency of a conventional deodorant, so it’s best to dab the stick on, rather than swipe.
Tip #3 - Detoxing Your Armpits When Using Natural Deodorant
Some people find that their armpits develop a rash when they first try a natural deodorant. While it may be an allergic reaction, for most people it is simply their skin detoxing from years of using antiperspirant. You can detox your armpits, and most people find that once they do so, any issues disappear.
Natural Deodorant Frequently Asked Questions
Does Natural Deodorant Work Effectively for Body Odor?
Goat milk on its own is antibacterial, which means it works effectively to reduce odor-causing bacteria over time. Baking soda, another ingredient used in some of our formulas, also reduces body odor by changing the pH of the underarm area and keeping it dry. (Arrowroot powder works the same way as baking soda but can be gentler for people with baking soda sensitivities as it absorbs moisture to keep odors at bay.) Most of our deodorants are scented with natural essential oils like calming lavender, invigorating citrus tea, or masculine cedarwood. And our fresh baby powder scent uses a paraben-free and phthalate-free fragrance for a nostalgic, clean, and pleasant scent.
Does Goat Milk Deodorant Stop Sweat?
Our Goat Milk Deodorant does not halt sweat because it is not an antiperspirant, but it is effective in reducing the odors often caused by sweat. Baking soda and arrowroot are also effective at absorbing moisture, without clogging your pores.
How Long Does Goat Milk Deodorant Work Before I Need to Reapply?
A little dab goes a long way. One application of Goat Milk Deodorant often lasts the whole day. However, if you are prone to sweating heavily, you may need to apply it more than once throughout the day to maintain that fresh feeling.
Will Goat Milk Deodorant Stain My Clothes?
If you dab instead of swipe, you shouldn’t see any staining on your clothes. But if you use too much, you may see some residue, so tread lightly. When this happens, we find that washing in warm or hot water can melt the oils and help remove them from your clothes. A Goat Milk Stuff stain stick may be needed to remove particularly large quantities of excess deodorant.
Will This all-Natural Deodorant Cause Discoloration to My Armpits?
You should not see any discoloration in your armpits, but some people who have used antiperspirant for years may experience a rash when they first switch to our goat milk deodorant. To avoid this, we suggest reading our article about how to detox your armpits when switching to natural deodorant. If you’ve had previous problems with armpit discoloration, you can try one of our natural deodorant samples before you commit to a full-sized deodorant.
