At Free Generation Naturals, we believe that what you put in your body should also be safe enough to put in your body. However, we need to make it clear that we're not recommending that anybody eat our products. Please don't; our deodorants are for external use only. They don't taste as great as they smell (trust us on this), and some ingredients used in the products would supply higher than the daily recommended dietary doses.
That said, all our ingredients are made in the U.S.A. and we use organic ingredients whenever possible. Our deodorants contain NO aluminum, parabens, or phthalates.
Ingredients we do use:
Organic Arrowroot Powder is a natural powder root starch that comes from the South American Maranta arundinacea plant. It is often used as a thickener in foods. In our deodorant, it effectively absorbs moisture, and its lightweight powder gives skin a soft and smooth feel.
Organic Coconut Oil is naturally antibacterial and antifungal due to its high lauric acid content, and leaves your skin nourished and hydrated.
Magnesium Hydroxide, also known as Magnesia, is typically taken internally to treat indigestion. Magnesium Oxide is very similar in structure and function, and when water is added, magnesium oxide becomes magnesium hydroxide. Magnesium oxide makes up 25% of the earth's crust. 75% of Americans are deficient in magnesium and are advised to supplement their intake. However, magnesium hydroxide, the form of magnesium used in the deodorant, is not the form commonly used as a topical magnesium supplement since it is not well-absorbed transdermally.
Organic Beeswax also has antibacterial properties and is the wax product used to solidify our deodorant. Beeswax has a light and pleasant honey aroma and won't clog pores.
Zinc Oxide can be found in baby rash creams, sunscreens, and is also used internally for zinc supplementation. The FDA-approved zinc oxide we use is certified non-nano (which means the particles are too large at 100nm or greater to penetrate the skin), and pharmaceutical-grade, so you can be confident it is free of lead, murcury, and other metals.
Organic Essential Oils- We use no artificial fragrances; our scents are created by a blend of essential oils that not only help create a powerful antibacterial barrier on your skin, but also leave a subtle and uplifting aroma that is suitable for both women and men. The essential oils we use are certified therapeutic grade, meaning there are no traces of pesticides or herbicides. Truly Mother Nature's gift to us.
Baking Soda (sodium bicarbonate) is extremely effective at eliminating odors and is the active ingredient in our extra-strength deodorant. Baking soda may irritate a small percentage of people, and we offer baking soda-free deodorants for those with sensitive skin.
