What's In Our Deodorant? + Lavender Magnolia Deo
Each ingredient in EG's new, natural deodorants has a specific purpose. A no-brainer, right? Uncovering exactly what each ingredient's purpose is, is another story. To clear up any questions you might have, our experts have given a breakdown of what each and every ingredient is designed to do, to make these deodorants as effective as possible.
Shea butter: Nourishes and heals skin
Arrowroot powder: Absorbs moisture
Magnesium hydroxide: Balances pH and controls odor
Coconut oil: Nourishes and heals skin
Vegetable glycerin: Nourishes and prevents irritation
Candelilla wax: Keeps deodorant on your skin, allowing it to fully absorb
Alpha-glucan oligosaccharide: A prebiotic which feeds good bacteria, while fighting bad, odor-causing bacteria
Sage oil: Helps fight bad bacteria
Essential oil synergy blend: Many of the oils included in each synergy blend found in our deodorant varieties help to fight bad bacteria while leaving a pleasant aroma that helps heighten freshness
Triethyl citrate: Maintains shelf life
Sodium Caproyl/Lactylate: An emulsifier which prevents ingredients from separating
Vitamin E: An antioxidant
Skin conditioners: Shea butter, Coconut oil, vegetable glycerin, candelilla wax
These four ingredients help to nourish and condition the skin in order to prevent irritation, flaking skin, rashes and other symptoms of a harsh, ineffective deodorant. Edens Garden deodorant not only makes your pits odor-free and fresh, but also keeps your underarms healthy, happy and looking their very best.
Antiperspirant: Arrowroot powder
Unlike traditional antiperspirants such as baking soda which clog sweat glands, arrowroot powder gently absorbs moisture without clogging glands.
pH balancer: Magnesium hydroxide
A product with too high or too low of a pH can irritate skin. The optimal pH of skincare products matches the pH of sweat, which is 4- 5.5. Magnesium hydroxide helps to balance the pH of our deodorant in order to further prevent skin irritation.
Deodorizers: Alpha-glucan oligosaccharide, sage oil, essential oil synergy blend
Through the use of natural prebiotics and essential oils, each deodorant is superbly capable of eliminating B.O., and replacing it with clean, aromatic freshness all day long. Switching to natural deodorant is no longer a compromise, because the use of innovative prebiotics and bacteria-fighting EOs makes these deos some of the most effective in the industry.
Stabilizers: Triethyl citrate, sodium caproyl/lactylate, vitamin E
To maintain the shelf life of our deodorants, we’ve included triethyl citrate and vitamin E. The use of sodium caproyl/lactylate also ensures that the ingredients do not separate. Combined, these ingredients make our deodorants resilient to the decaying effects of heat, dampness, extreme weather and other environmental factors.
