Shorganics Review and Giveaway


I have been wanting to try other natural deodorants because the ones I have been using do not work for me at all!  I hoped to find a deodorant that is both natural and effective!  I found a local company called Shorganics that was willing to let me review their deodorant for my honest opinion.

A little about Shorganics from their website: 
"Matt & Megan Vick started Shorganics many years ago as a hobby because they were unable to find products to cater to their sensitive skin. Their journey began when, after exhaustive research, they discovered that even the most highly praised "all natural" products contained ingredients that were less than desirable. They learned the truth about sulfates, parabens, and other substances and with this knowledge; they set out to make something better.

Inspired by the Outer Banks of North Carolina, where they grew up, Matt and Megan decided to make a line of products like the beach. Both fragile and durable, but always natural and pure, the beaches endure constant change and bring happiness to everyone who visits and lives there. Shorganics products are never tested on animals and use vegan and organic ingredients to deliver a pure product which brings happiness to all those who use it."

There are two deodorant scents to choose from and I selected the Lavender Lemongrass.  I feel like working in a restaurant and being a busy mom I tested this to the fullest extent! 

Features that I liked: 

  • The Ingredients-Certified Vegan and only consists of a few simple ingredients.  Organic Sunflower Oil, Organic Candelilla Wax, Organic Cocoa Butter, Baking Soda*, Organic Corn Starch, Organic Arrowroot Powder, Organic Lavender Oil, Organic Lemon Oil, Organic Rosemary Oil Extract
    *Aluminum Free
  • The Smell- it smells great, you get a hint of both the lavender and lemongrass!
  • I am not putting Aluminum (Cancer causing) under my arms!
  • Moisture Control-I did not sweat as much as I normally do
  • Odor Control
  • Easy to apply
 

The only one thing I found out about this deodorant while working in a very hot and busy restaurant was that I should have reapplied before going into work.  I found that after I simply applied another application before work I was fresh!  With that in mind, I would much rather reapply than put cancer causing product under my arms.

Shorganics makes many other products, some of which include items such as clay masks, lip balms, face scrubs, soaps, and even candles.

All products they make are: 
  • Certified organic ingredients
  • 100% Vegan - all ingredients are vegan and our equipment does not come in contact with animal products
