Eco Tan Deodorant Review

It's about time we review another one of our amazing cruelty free products right? Our Eco Tan organic deodorant is flying off the shelves and is proving to be super popular with the NZ market. 

I think we are all shifting toward 'healthier' and natural products as we understand more about what goes into our skin and ultimately into our bodies and organs. Eco Tan was created to provide amazing organic and cruelty free products that don't include the hidden nasty chemicals that are usually found in most tanners and deodorants.

The Eco Tan deodorant is a sweet, coconut smelling spray that gives you the feeling you are in a tropical paradise. The 125ml spray bottle is unisex - Yes, even your man can benefit! It contains no hidden nasties, parabens or aluminium. So it won't clog your sweat glands with metals that can be absorbed into your body.

Sweat is your body's way of releasing toxins (as well as regulating body temp and a reaction to stimulation and/or stress) and if your sweat glands become blocked with ingredients such as aluminium, then those toxins stay circulating within your body. Not cool.

Here's a little back story behind my search for a cruelty free deodorant that actually works..

Once I realised that my trusted Rexona was tested on poor, innocent animals, I set out on a mission to replace it with something cruelty free. Sounds like an easy task right? Well not as easy as I thought. After months and months of testing and trialling anything I could find that was CF, I came to the conclusion that maybe there was just nothing that could stop the odour (sorry TMI!). I'm not a big sweater either so I didn't think it would be this hard.  

I then turned to Google and found that some people had struck luck by using a fresh lime. Willing to give anything a go, I went and bought limes and used them for the next few weeks. Just a fresh cut lime, halved and dabbed under the armpit. It seemed to work enough to neutralise the body oder scent, but still not quite enough for me to feel comfortable lifting my arms when I was around others (please tell me you know exactly what I'm talking about?). The search continued..

It wasn't until we started the She Lives Cruelty Free process that I came across the Eco Tan Deodorant. Perfect timing as I was all out of ideas. I was super thrilled/excited/nervous to try this product out, just praying that it would work. Luckily for me (and you) it actually worked. Just one or two sprays under each armpit will leave your pits smelling like a Hawaiian dream. I can work an 11 hour shift on my feet and still smell like sweet coconuts by dinner time. If I need to freshen up, I just spray one pump under each arm and carry on into the night! If you have already tried out this deodorant please comment below and let us know what you think.
