Brand I Tried: Salubritas
Product: Pina Colada Deodorant Balm
Product Description: "Smelling good doesn't have to be bad for you." Made with love in Park City, Utah by Salubritas (Latin for healthfullness & wholesomeness) whose mission is to provide an effective alternative to chemical-laden body care products for the health-conscious individual in an earth-friendly way. Try one of six scents or unscented.
Ingredients: Organic shea butter, sodium bicarbonate (good ol’ fashioned baking soda), organic cocoa butter, organic arrowroot powder, organic coconut oil, vitamin E, and essential oils (organic pina colada flavor oil in pina colada). Sodium bicarbonate works to neutralize odor while arrowroot powder absorbs moisture. The butters and oils give it a luxuriously rich consistency and help the powders “stick”.

- The GG's Opinion: Although Pit Putty still has my heart... here is another option for you. I really like this for three main reasons. 1. because it 's good for you, 2. because it really works and 3. because of it's ease of use! When applying it- it glides right on, with no crumbling... unlike my Pit Putty, especially in the cold winter months :( and it is super easy to rub in! I know what you're thinking... it must be greasy, slick and slimy, right? NOPE! It actually dries to a nice silky, smooth finish somehow and also makes it easier to shave the next day! Silky smooth armpits anyone? LOL. Plus, when you massage your underarm in a downwards motion, it stimulates the Lymph System- which helps you get rid of toxins ASAP. YAY! I found that I didn't need as much as I thought and even used a little less than the actual recommended (pea size) amount. I've tired the Orange Lavender (wasn't crazy about it-smelled only like Lavender to me), the Pina Colada (smells only like Pineapple to me) & the Unscented (smells like pure Shea Butter). Pina Colada is my favorite with the Unscented being a close second. However, I must note that none of these smelled as girly as I'd like them too, and I'm still having a hard time getting used to the smell of the shea butter, BUT the smooth, moisturized condition of my skin makes up for it all! Hmmm... guess it's growing on me :) I could probably even skip a day if I reeeeeally wanted too (Shhh... don't tell anyone). Ew. LOL.
