Essensia Naturals Deodorant

Overall Rating: 3 Stars

I have been on the search for years for a deodorant, free of harmful ingredients, that is effective and has the longevity to stay effective throughout strenuous workouts. I have found and tried several ingredients that satisfied my first requirement, however they did not do the job in regards to “stink control.”

Here is how Essensia describes their product:

“Essensia’s Natural Deodorant is the most effective aluminum (aluminium) free underarm odor controlling product on the market today.

We have heard it a thousand times that natural deodorants do not work. We thought that too, so we created our own formula without aluminum. We did not make a product that just covers up or masks odor. We made a product that eliminates odor. And it eliminates odor for up to 24 hours.

Try this. Get up, shower, go to work, go out and before you go to bed have your significant other, put their nose an inch from you armpit and take a big sniff. If they exclaim, “ooh, that’s nasty”, it’s time to buy Essensia! We have run that test over a hundred times as part of our product development process. I’m relieved to say that we don’t stink anymore and you don’t have to either!

Try Essensia’s Natural Deodorant, get fresh!

My Description & Thoughts:

My fiancee has been on board with me in finding natural deodorant options as well, without complete satisfaction.

Enter: Essensia Natural Deodorant. He and I both applied this Essensia Deodorant in the morning and did a “pit check” every few hours to check for stinkiness. By the end of the day, we both did a pit check and were pleasantly surprised. The original scent of the deodorant had mostly faded, however, there was no stink! We are both heavy sweaters and were impressed with this product. I would imagine that most individuals who are looking for a natural deodorant are most interested in two things: clean ingredients and effective staying power. This product has mostly clean ingredients and works satisfactorily.
