For review purposes I was sent a product in exchange for my own personal opinion.
I made the change sometime last year probably to switch from mainstream deodorants to natural after looking up the rating on the EWG.org for most of the ones you can get in a store. My problem however is I feel like I have to re-apply every so often or I find I have certain sensitivities to some brands and can not figure out what ingredient is causing reactions.
My sister was telling me about PiperWai and actually she ordered her first jar when I got mine to review.
Just a little about PiperWai and how they got started from their website:
Jess and Sarah have been business partners ever since they sold lemonade the summer after 4th grade at a park in Philadelphia. Over the years, they've remained close friends, frequently discussing their paradoxical desire to live a more natural lifestyle in a hectic urban environment.
After reading about the potentially harmful effects of her conventional antiperspirant and disappointed by the yellow stains its aluminum content caused on a cherished blouse, Jess decided she needed to make a change in her underarm regimen. However, she quickly realized that existing natural deodorants and popular DIY recipes online either didn't work, easily melted, or turned her sensitive skin bright red. Jess set out to create the perfect natural deodorant for herself. Six months and about a hundred test batches later, she gave the final product to Sarah to try during a service trip in South America.
After realizing what a great product they had they decided to go into business!
When I received my jar I couldn't wait to try it out! I was still working at the restaurant so I figured I would go ahead and take the plunge and try it out there at a sweaty night of work. I applied maybe a pea size amount to each pit after getting out of the shower and to my surprise I didn't stink after working a shift.
Since then we are in 80 plus degree days outside now and it is still working great. I have had my jar for almost a month and its not even half way down the jar. I was a little skeptical of trying a new natural product because many I have tried I kept having to reapply after a few hours and this one is not the case. I can even wake up and just reapply in the morning because lets face it I don't get a shower everyday!
Other things that I like:
Overall, if you are looking for a natural deodorant and you want to make the change I highly recommend PiperWai!
