It’s not even Labor Day yet and everyone’s gearing up for pumpkin spice season already. Yes, Pumpkin Spice Lattes are coming soon to a Starbucks near you, but it’s all the other pumpkin-scented and flavored stuff that amazes us. You can even get PSL-scented lip balm and wine.
But there’s a new pumpkin product this year that really shows we’ve reached peak pumpkin spice levels: deodorant. Brought to you by Native, this deodorant is free of parabens, phthalates [[THAY-lates]], and aluminum, like all of their products. And their website lists a total of 14 ingredients, which are all easy to pronounce, including shea butter, jojoba oil, baking soda and coconut oil.
So this natural deodorant has fewer ingredients than most deodorants and antiperspirants, but without that aluminum, it doesn’t do much to stop you from sweating. It’s the price we pay for using a natural product. And if you don’t want your pits smelling like warm cinnamon all day, Native makes lots of other scents, including lavender and rose, coconut and vanilla, and rosé. So you can stay away from the chemicals and not smell like a coffee drink, unless you want to.
