Product review by EvG team member Amanda Shea:

As a vegan committed to living a natural lifestyle, finding a great, non-toxic deodorant can be tricky. I have tried half a dozen over the years, struggling to find one that keeps up with my active lifestyle. Deodorants are unlike antiperspirants, which prevent you from sweating via harsh chemicals like parabens, aluminum, phthalates, and propylene glycol). These chemicals can also be found in deodorant, and I don’t know about you but I don’t want my body absorbing them! That's why I was thrilled at the results of the truly natural line from Schmidt’s.

Schmidt’s sent me their entire line: cedarwood & juniper, ylang-ylang & calendula, bergamot & lime, lavender & sage, and fragrance free. Each one is amazing, especially the beautifully smelling essential oils in their scented deodorants. I am usually a lavender person, so I was surprised when I fell in love with the ylang-ylang & calendula scent. All 5 deodorants leave the skin soothed and clean. When I tested them out at the gym and yoga, they kept up and left my underarms smelling fresh (thank goodness!).

The other great thing is that these deodorants come in glass jars, which is an eco-friendly alternative to the standard plastic most brands use. You can reuse or recycle the Schmidt’s jars when you are finished with them - once washed they'd be great for spices or small odds and ends at home! The price of the deodorant is very reasonable. A 2oz. container of Schmidt’s deodorant retails for about $9.00 and will last at least a couple of months, so if you do the math compared to store bought deodorants it saves money.
