Natural deodorants can be found everywhere. But a natural deodorant that actually works? That’s a whole different story. I’m always on the look out to find an effective deodorant and have had a very hard time doing so. Time after time, I head back to aluminum and chemical filled versions. When Schmidt’s offered to send me a deodorant to review, I was eager to try it out. Given my history with natural deodorants, I wasn’t sure it would be for me. At the same time, I have friends who swear by Schmidt’s as the only natural deodorant that works for them. I had to give it a try!
Claims: “Our formula effectively neutralizes underarm odor and absorbs wetness without the use of aluminum or other harmful chemicals.
Ingredients: Butyrospermum parkii (shea butter), Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), Maranta arundinacea (arrowroot) powder, Theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter, Cedrus deodara (Himalayan cedar) essential oil, Tocopherol (vitamin E), Juniperus (juniper) essential oil, Humulus lupulus (hop) extract
Pros: Cruelty free brand. Vegan formula. Propylene glycol-free. Paraben-free. Phthalate-free. Sleek recylable and re-useable packaging. Comes in a variety of scents that are subtle and not overpowering.
Cons: You need to apply the product with your fingers, which may not be for everyone.
The Verdict: Schmidt’s works!! It works better than about 99% of other natural deodorants that I have tried. Coming from me, this is saying a lot. I liked that the scent was natural, not too strong, and stayed smelling pleasant. The formula was smooth and creamy. To be honest, I wasn’t a huge fan of applying it with my fingers and would rather a traditional tube. I applied the deodorant in the morning as I usually would. By the end of the day, I felt like it still had some staying power. As with most natural deodorants, I would suggest re-applying throughout the day if you’re an active person. What impressed me the most is that it did keep me dryer than other natural deodorants that I have tried. Overall, I really liked Schmidt’s Deodorant. I’ve continued to use it and have suggested it to friends. I would love to try more scents once this jar runs out.
The jars of deodorant are available to purchase online. Choose from Cedarwood & Juniper, Ylang-Ylang & Calendula, Bergamont & Lime, Lavender & Sage, Fragrance-Free, or order the deluxe sampler to try them all.
