Here it is. creamy, lovely and nothing at all like the mush from this previous post. After working on perfecting the texture of my stick deodorant since 2012 and reintroducing ingredients I feared were on the way out (but seem to be on the way in again), it looks like this might just be the winner.
I say this with a certain hesitation.
Because we've seen things poop out after a bit of use, so let's just hold our horses before we start jumping around in glee..
But it really does look like...
Ingredient ListThis deodorant stick contains mango butter (which I've never used in a deodorant), stearic acid (a coconut and/or palm oil based texture-giving ingredient), fractionated coconut oil (to keep it as non-fatty yet 'glide-y' as possible), lemon ester, farnesol and a lovely mix of essential oils (lemon tea tree, clary sage and lavender) that double as odor-busters and scent givers.
The Best CriticMy husband is what some might categorize as brutally honest. I use this expression in the kindest sense, as he is also quite constructive in his reviews of my products. He has given this version a tentative thumbs up (he has also been testing all the other versions – even the ones that have pooped out after long term use).
Only time will tell if this marriage of 2 stick deodorants is the final version, but so far, it's looking like a winner.
