Today I’m reviewing two natural deodorants from Undercarriage – the Gerouli NO BS Natural Deodorant and the Woodzee Natural Deodorant that I purchased from well.ca. [info in italics taken from the Undercarriage website]
Undercarriage is a fairly new Canadian brand – I found out about them on InstaGram – here’s a little bit of info about them:
We decided to come up with Undercarriage for the simple reason that people want to feel fresh in all “under parts” under the arms, under the breasts and under the belt – and the options we are presented within the marketplace are deodorant sticks, talcs and other products that aren’t necessarily the healthiest of options.
This product is for anyone that wants odor protection. It won’t prevent you from sweating, but it will minimize your wetness and keep you smelling fresh. Creates a barrier that kills bacteria that causes odor.
My underarm skin has been sensitive recently, so I decided to first try out their No BS Natural Deodorant Cream in the Gerouli scent.
SERIOUSLY NO BS…THIS DEODORANT FORMULA IS BAKING SODA FREE FOR EXTRA SENSITIVE SKIN. THIS BAKING SODA FREE FORMULA IS PERFECT FOR INDIVIDUALS THAT MIGHT GET RED, BUMPY AND IRRITATED UNDER THE ARMS FROM REGULAR BAKING SODA FORMULAS. A CRISP, REFRESHING BLEND OF GERANIUM, PATCHOULI AND GRAPEFRUIT GIVES THIS DEODORANT ITS COOL SCENT. A LITTLE HIPPIE-DIPPIE MIXED WITH A LITTLE BIT OF HOOD. NATURAL DEODORANT CREAM WITH POWDERY FINISH FOR UNDER THE ARMS AND THE BELT. NATURAL OIL BARRIER PROTECTS SKIN AND PRIVATE AREAS FROM ODOR, CHAFING AND DISCOMFORT.
Normally, I don’t find that baking soda free deodorants are as long lasting as a regular formula for me, but this one lasts surprisingly well. And my underarms seem to get less wet than with other BS-free formulas. The scent is mild, I smell the geranium more than the patchouli – not at all hippie-dippie.
The Mister has also tried and liked this deodorant as well!
Ingredients/ingrédients : Maranta arundinacea (arrowroot) powder, Cocos Nucifera (coconut) Oil, Magnesium Hydroxide (Magnesium), Cera alba (Beeswax), Butyrospermum parkii (shea butter), Prunus Dulcis (Almond) Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens (Geranium Essential Oil), Citrus racemosa (Grapefruit White Essential Oil), Pogostemon Cablin (Patchouli Essential Oil), Tocopherol (vitamin E), Carbo activatus (activated charcoal)
After using the No BS formula, I decided to buy and test out the regular formula (with baking soda) soon as well to see if the Undercarriage formulation would work with my sensitive skin.
A REFRESHING BLEND OF YLANG YLANG AND CEDARWOOD ESSENTIAL OILS GIVES THIS DEODORANT IT’S COOL – WOOD-ZEE SCENT.
The regular formula so far seems to be ok for my sensitive underarms – no irritation even if I use it several days in a row! It has been working really well for me during the current heatwave – a miracle, because it has been STINKING HOT! The Mister tried and liked this one as well!
One thing that I really like is that neither deodorant is over-scented! Great if you are sensitive to scents.
Ingredients/ingrédients : Maranta arundinacea (arrowroot) powder, Cocos Nucifera (coconut) Oil, Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), Cera alba (Beeswax), Butyrospermum parkii (shea butter), Prunus Dulcis (Almond) Oil, Juniperus virginiana (Cedarwood Essential Oil), Cananga Odorata (Ylang Ylang Essential Oil) Tocopherol (vitamin E), *Organic
Have you tried either formulation of Natural Deodorant from Undercarriage? They have several different scents – and they have a vegan formula (without the beeswax).
Thanks for reading
