Our Ingredients and Why They Work
Truly's Natural Deodorant Contains:
- Organic coconut oil
- Organic Powdered sugar (Organic Sugar, Organic Tapioca Starch)
- Baking soda
Truly's will keep you smelling fresh even if you sweat a great deal over the course of a day without having to reapply.
How does it work? The sugar in our deodorant combines with your own perspiration to create a hyper osmotic solution that
prevents odor causing bacterial growth. Before antibiotics, sugar and honey were used to prevent infections in open wounds. In
an article called "The Sweet Art of Healing", Dr. Julian Whitaker explains why they work:
"When sugar or honey is packed on top of and inside of an open wound, it dissolves in the fluid exuding from the wound, creating a hyperosmotic, or highly concentrated, medium. Bacteria cannot live in a hyperosmotic environment any more than a goldfish could survive in the Great Salt Lake. Scientists have tested the viability of many types of bacteria, including Klebsiella, Shigella, Staphylococcus aureus, and Streptococcus pyogenes, and none of them have been able to survive in a honey or sugar solution."(1)
Our finely milled baking soda works as another natural, powerful odor fighter. In addition, coconut oil has antimicrobial (both
antibacterial and antifungal) properties and is skin soothing and moisturizing. We use only the best organic
coconut oil which has a wonderful light coconut smell. With Truly's Natural Deodorant, you don't have to compromise
effectiveness to stay true to your health. Finally, a natural deodorant that lasts all day! Try it and see for yourself!
