Pachy Natural Deodorant by Rustic Maka is an all-natural deodorant without the potentially harmful ingredients found in many store bought deodorants or antiperspirants. Go green, stay natural and be fresh!
The concerning ingredient in antiperspirants is aluminum salt. It may be listed as: aluminum chloride, aluminum chlorohydrate or aluminum zirconium compounds. Aluminum-based compounds temporarily plug the sweat glands to prevent you from perspiring. Most antiperspirants are coupled with a deodorant, which contains fragrance to prevent you from stinking. These combos typically contain a variety of other "inactive ingredients". Some research studies have suggested that the use of antiperspirants may lead to breast cancer. While some experts argue the studies linking aluminum and breast cancer have not been validated, there's enough evidence to be concerning.
The great news is that we don't have to use possibly dangerous chemicals to smell sweet and feel confident. I can't imagine my life without deodorant! Pachy Natural Deodorant, created by Rustic Maka was designed as a natural alternative to store bought deodorants.

I had never used a natural deodorant before, so I wasn't sure what to expect. The deodorant came packaged in an easy to use twist up tube. I was absolutely thrilled with the scent! I received one large deodorant in Calming Fields scent and a Sample Set. I decided to seriously put this deodorant to the test, so I applied it before heading to the gym. I did an hour of pretty intense cardio and was a little nervous to do the "sniff test". I was shocked to pass the sniff test. I still smelled fresh after my intense workout. THIS STUFF REALLY WORKS! Just remember, it's not an antiperspirant so you'll still sweat while using it. We're meant to sweat; it seems unnatural to plug our sweat glands with an antiperspirant in my opinion!
Pachy Natural Deodorant is a wonderful alternative to aluminum-containing deodorants and antiperspirants. If you want to order your own tube of Pachy deodorant, visit the Rustic Maka Store. You can also follow Rustic Maka on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
