|Naturally Fresh Deodorant Crystal|
This review has been on the back burner for quite some time. After hearing about the health scares as it relates to deodorant, I thought it would be a great idea to try a natural deodorant. After attending the Bellydancers of Color (BOCA) conference a few years ago,this deodorant was recommended.
The product comes in a variety of fragrances and types. There is a crystal with the texture of a rock that you would moisten prior to each use. I have heard great things from folks who use the stone.
The version that I used is actually a roll-on version, which I thought would be more convenient. (Yes, that is a Michael Jackson glove in the background...Ow! Why? Because I can.) Moving right along...
After reading about the possible connection between the aluminum content, parabens and breast cancer; I had to explore the options.
During my client consultations, I ask prospective clients to bring in the products they are currently using. We review the products and I make recommendations based on the condition of their hair. I consider myself to be knowledgeable about some ingredients, but have no problem admitting that I am unclear about others. One of the ingredients that I commonly see on ingredients lists is panthenol.
Through my reading, I have heard many consider it to be a 'hair plumper', moisturizer...you name it! After seeing it on a number of products that receive natural hair love, I became a bit curious about the ingredient. I did my research and came up with my very own understanding of what this ingredient does for our hair and skin.
What is it?
Panthenol is a substance that is commonly used in skin and hair care products. You may also hear it coined as 'pro-vitamin B'.
Where does it come from?
The substance can be derived from plant, animal or synthetically created. Based on my findings, there is no way to tell where the instance in your particular product derives. Many natural or vegan products may include labeling to notify you that the product contains no animal products or may even go as far to place '(plant derived)' behind the ingredient.
