I am in the middle of week 1 of the natural deodorant experiment with my partner. We’re trying one brand a week as we make the switch. Now, my first brand is Native and I am more than pleased. The coconut vanilla smells wonderful. I am noticing more sweat but I am not experiencing the “stinky” period. My sweet butch, however, is. She’s stinky, alright. She’s applying the Tom’s Cedar Point three, four, five times a day.
I accidentally put the Tom’s Rose on this evening instead of my Native stick, and jesus CHRIST it burned after a few minutes. I had to get into the shower and wash it off. I must be allergic to something in there but I can’t figure out what. My partner, despite the stink, has not experienced any such burning from the cedar point. I will not be putting that back on my body, though, which already narrows the choice for me down between Native and Ben&Anna.
Has anyone else experienced that burn? What’s causing that? It can’t be the baking soda because Native has baking soda and I’ve been doing fine with it.
