CONTEST HAS ENDED *******************
And the winner is.......
Months ago I was at a convention center with my mama checking out the newest green products for the home and garden. I went as a personal fun trip but also wanted to find some local companies to get samples to try out. I'm a non profit blogger so anything I review is given to me or bought out of my own pocket.
I walked by a booth for Schmidt's Natural Deodorant and was excited to see a great product made right here in Oregon. Woot! I really actively look for local companies who strive to be sustainable and as close to nature as possible. Schmidt's fits the bill! I mentioned I was a non profit blogger and Jaime Schmidt gave me a large sample to try out for myself. I walked away with a giant smile on my face!
Here are a few facts about this amazing company-
-Hand crafted here in Oregon!
-Scents include Cedarwood/Juniper, Ylang/-Ylang/Calendula(I sampled), Bergamot/Lime, Lavender/Sage and Fragrance Free for those who can't use essential oils or are sensitive to them.
-Neutralizes under arm odor
-Absorbs wetness without the use of aluminum or other harmful chemicals
-100% natural ingredients
-Glass jar with plastic lid
-You can buy online if not local to them.
-Also found in many retail stores across the USA
-Retail packages have no outside packaging. Just the product which means less waste!
In August we went on a vacation to California and I packaged my Schmidt sample. It was going to be hot and I knew that this would be a great time to test it out. First thing I noticed was that it didn't melt into a liquid when it was in my baggage. I was a bit worried about leakage but nope! I used it each day and my pits smelled so lovely. Stayed on when I was in the pool and let me just say we were in the pool most of the time. Nothing worst than a deodorant coming off mid day and having to reapply it often. I'm happy to report nothing but good things. This deodorant was awesome.
I knew the best test would be to hand over this deodorant to my 15 year old daughter. She is a typical active teenager who NEEDS deodorant each and every single day. Plus she plays soccer. Need I say more? I handed over the deodorant and said use it. As a mother I didn't smell her after practice like the usual. No rolling down the windows for fresh air. She also said it helped with keeping her arm pits dry. Most natural deodorants don't help with wetness in the pits at all. HUGE bonus! From now on she will be using Schmidt's Natural Deodorant as long as I can buy Bergamot & Lime so her arm pits can smell like Skittles candy. Silly teenager!
Although the essential oils are not organic they do use pure essential oils. They use baking powder and arrowroot powder to control wetness and odor. No yucky chemicals here! What really impressed me was their customer service. Didn't hesitate to answer any of my questions. Which I had a ton. Ive got your back everyone and ask what I know you want to know. I'm kinda awesome like that.
I HANDS DOWN RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT TO ANYONE. GREAT FOR ME BECAUSE ITS LOCAL BUT IF YOU CAN'T FIND A LOCAL PRODUCT FOR YOUR NEEDS THEN YOU MUST TRY THIS ONE OUT. AMAZING PRODUCT WITH NO ECO GUILT.
For my plastic free readers-I asked and Jaime Schmidt gives the A okay for asking for no plastic bubble wrap when shipping their product to you. Because the container is glass she wraps it in bubble wrap but if your okay with the possibility of breakage she will leave it out. But honestly the glass jar is very durable if you ask me.
