Men's FitPit Deodorant

£4.00Price

Metaphorically, plastic stinks, but that doesn’t mean you have to literally stink to go plastic free. FitPit is a 100% organic and natural deodorant cream that comes in a glass jar, hurrah!

 

Isn’t it nice to know that you don’t need lots of chemicals to mask your sweat? You don’t smell that bad, honest. Why not just smell clean and fresh instead with FitPit! Scented with Cypress and Bergamot so you can feel like you’ve just ran through a pine forest and rolled around in a citrus grove. It’s an outdoorsy scent, so a breath of fresh air for your pits you might say. Deters excess perspiration, so you smell good without breaking a sweat.

 

Choose from a 25ml jar for around 3 weeks supply or a 100ml jar to last 3 months.

 

To use, rub a pea sized amount onto your underarms. The cream will melt in contact with your skin. Dries instantly and leaves no white stains.

 

Store somewhere cool. If it does melt, stick it in the fridge for a bit.

  • Deodorant in a spray can with plastic components or plastic roll on. Having looked at the ingredients for some of the most common brands of deodorant, quite a few have polymers in the actual product itself as well. Sneaky plastic on your skin! Other ingredients in regular deodorants are considered to be cause for concern too, such as parabens which can be an irritant for those with sensitive skin.

     

    Generally, commercial deodorants have lots of synthetic chemicals in. While it may not be a concern for everyone, there is a growing awareness of how many chemicals we expose ourselves to everyday, and what the repeated use of these has on our health. There is currently a lack of research on the long-term effects of many of the substances used in cosmetics and skincare products. So, whilst proven safe for use in the short term and in small amounts, it is difficult to assess whether long term exposure to these substances is safe for the user. This is especially important as the number of products we use on our skin has risen for the average person, and we don’t necessarily know how the body reacts over time to various mixed concoctions of these ingredients. If the research happens to find lots of evidence to prove these are safe, then go ahead and smother yourself in these things, but, as they say, prevention is better than a cure. It won’t do you any harm then to cut down on this list (which contains many chemicals found in plastics!) of potentially harmful synthetic chemicals and choose products that use natural and organic ingredients instead.
