MAKING PEACE WITH YOUR PITS:
We've Got the Best Natural Deodorants in Staunton, VA
Natural Odor and Wetness Protection: No Parabens, No Aluminum
Still can’t find a natural deodorant replacement for your grocery store brand?
It’s not easy. We know.
The shelves are loaded with natural deodorants claiming to work. The proof is in the armpit, however, and many of those deodorants don’t pass the “stop the stink” test.
And then there’s the challenge of sweat.
Many natural deodorants control odor, but they don’t control sweat. That can be a real problem for those who sweat a lot.
Fortunately, we found two natural health solutions that your pits will love!
Best Natural Deodorant Without Heavy Baking Soda
Conventional antiperspirants use aluminum to plug up your sweat glands to stop you from perspiring. And, while there is no direct link at this time that proves aluminum causes breast cancer, there are other worrisome ingredients like:
Parabens—Endocrine disruptor, allergens, causes reproductive disorders
Proplyene Glycol—Irritates skin, lungs, and eyes. Fetal and reproductive neurotoxin linked to liver damage
Silica—Possible carcinogen if contaminated with crystalline quartz
Talc—Non-reproductive organ system toxin
Triclosan—Antibacterial agent banned in several countries. Contributes to endocrine disruption, the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria,
Phthalates—Causes cancer, infertility, birth defects. Also an allergen
Steareths—Causes skin irritation, reproductive/developmental toxicity, endocrine disruptor
Enter Piper Wai. Yes, it’s a natural deodorant, not an antiperspirant, but it’s also in a category all its own.
Piper Wai uses activated charcoal to neutralize odor as well as to absorb wetness. (It was one of the first natural deodorant companies to do so!) And that’s a good thing for people who need additional sweat protection.
Activated charcoal is a powerhouse ingredient that’s an excellent moisture absorbent. It also controls odors.
In fact, many Piper Wai customers say that it works better than their over-the-counter clinical strength antiperspirant.
Odor is neutralized
Sweat is reduced
Your clothes are stain-free
One Thing You Must Know About Using A Natural Deodorant ...
If you have always used a grocery store conventional deodorant, you might experience a transition period! Because conventional antiperspirants literally plug up your sweat ducts, preventing your body from sweating.
When you start to use a natural deodorant like Piper Wai, you will most likely sweat MORE for the first two weeks.
That’s because your body is re-adjusting to performing a natural function. Following this period, most people find that they sweat less using Piper Wai.
Unlike traditional deodorants and antiperspirants, Piper Wai works with your body’s chemistry. Plus, its job is to actually neutralize the offending odor, not cover it up!
11 organic essential oils

Plus, it comes in multiple scents! All scents are created with plant-based essential oils, never artificial fragrances. You have your choice between Lavender, Jasmine, Lemongrass, Spice or Royal & Rogue.
