In an age where pink slime, arsenic, and ammonia abound in our nation’s meat, the last thing I want to do is knowingly put any additional gross chemicals into my body. Recently, I’ve made a concerted effort to use only natural and eco-friendly products, starting with La Vanila’s Healthy Deodorant. It’s a simple but easy step to take in the right direction, as it’s an all natural deodorant that’s aluminum free, allergy tested, dermatologist approved, and formulated without parabens, synthetic dyes, or sulfates. Irrespective of the health benefits, the scents are so beautiful and fresh, you’ll barely want to wear anything else. I find a pure vanilla scent to be too sweet and cloying on an actual person (although I love the smell in baking), but when cut with the citrus highlights of grapefruit, passionfruit, lavender, or coconut, it’s relegated to instant sophistication and becomes the perfect blend of girlishness and femininity. The formula is dispensed through a roller ball, that quickly dries to a dry, satiny finish. The LaVanila Deodorant retails for $18.
