If you’ve been following our journey at all, you know that natural deodorant has been a trial and error for me for over 6 years. It has been quite the challenge to find one that works for me. I have tried so many and none of them truly worked all day for me. I know the dangers of using deodorants with aluminum in them so I refused to go back to using them again but I needed to find something that would keep me fresh smelling all day. Smelling funky is definitely not my thing!
We watch, and love, Shark Tank. Have you seen it? It is a great show about entrepreneurs who have come up with an idea or product. They pitch it to multimillionaire and billionaire “sharks” to see if they can get them to buy in to their product or idea and then give them a loan for some equity in their business.
About a year ago, we were watching it and saw two young ladies come into the “tank” and pitch their idea about a natural deodorant called PiperWai. Barbara Corcoran, one of the sharks, made a deal with them to help them with their business!
I am so thankful we were watching Shark Tank that day as it led me to Google their product and order it online from Lucky Vitamin. A jar costs $11.99 and is worth every penny!
Here is a description of this deodorant on their website, piperwai.com:
“PiperWai is the first naturally powerful, aluminum-free deodorant that uses activated charcoal to absorb wetness and fight odor. Natural ingredients like organic coconut oil, shea butter, and pure vitamin E soothe even the most sensitive skin. Our stain-free formula rubs in clear and won’t discolor your clothes. Meet your new essential.”
And what an essential it has been for me! I’ve been using it for almost a year now, since it aired on Shark Tank. It has been a real life-saver for me and my stinky pits! LOL! But seriously, I want to smell fresh and clean, like everyone else does, but without the harmful chemicals. This stuff is the bomb!
Some other interesting facts on their website include:
Activated Charcoal Absorbs Wetness
PiperWai’s formula uses activated charcoal which can absorb 1,000x its own weight in moisture, forming an absorbent shield between your skin and your shirt. It keeps you dry and stain-free, even through workouts, all without plugging your sweat glands like traditional antiperspirant.
Neutralizes Odor Naturally
Sweat secreted from your underarms glands is odorless, but starts to smell when exposed to bacteria. PiperWai’s natural ingredients create a pH-balanced environment where bacteria can’t thrive, leaving you and your clothes smelling fresh with a single application – even after workouts!
Smells Like a Spa
A proprietary blend of 11 therapeutic-grade essential oils gives PiperWai its signature spa-like scent. No more smelling like baby powder or synthetic fragrances.
Gentle On Sensitive Skin
Packed with skin-conditioning ingredients like organic coconut oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, and pure vitamin E oil, PiperWai is great for sensitive skin. Unlike other baking soda-heavy formulas, PiperWai won’t cause irritation, can be applied immediately after shaving and is even gentle on skin conditions like psoriasis or eczema.
I can personally attest to all of the above and will tell you that it is all true! I absolutely LOVE this deodorant! Check it out here: www.piperwai.com
