After using my regular deodorant for 8 months, my pits turned dark and broke out in a killer, red, bumpy rash!
First I flipped out, thinking oh no I have to go back to the store bought ones because this is not working. After reading some awesome blogs, I found out that this can be a totally normal reaction to the baking soda, as it can sometimes create an alkaline imbalance on skin. I soon discovered a way to balance the pH level of my skin- applying a solution of 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar to 1 cup water, in the morning and the evening. Within a day and a half the rash and darkening of the skin were gone!
I created a Sensitive Skin deodorant with a smaller amount of baking soda compared to my regular deodorant and probiotics. The probiotics contain bacteria growth and help offset the reduced levels of baking soda. Better yet, the sensitive skin deodorant works just as well as the others, just with less baking soda.
This deodorant is made with bergamot, geranium, and lemon essential oils giving it a light, floral scent.
If your pits happen to break out in a rash don't give up, just consider using the one for sensitive skin.
