Deodorant Done Right

by Mollie Jensen August 28, 2018

With all of the day-to-day things to think about, worrying about whether your deodorant is clean and effective shouldn’t be one of them. You need something that you can apply and go forth in the world with confidence. Let me introduce you to your underarms’ new best friend: Squalane + Bamboo Deodorant.

What’s so different about it? For starters, unlike many other clean or natural deodorants on the market, Squalane + Bamboo Deodorant is baking soda free. This is important because baking soda can be harsh on the skin and cause irritation. It has an alkaline pH, which is how it controls bacteria from sweat (the culprit of odor), though unfortunately that same alkalinity disrupts skin’s natural pH balance, and that can have irritating consequences. Squalane + Bamboo Deodorant is completely baking soda free and safe for even the most sensitive skin. In fact, we find that it can be used post wax or shave without irritation.

Another ingredient that we chose to keep out the formula is coconut oil. This ubiquitous beauty oil is everywhere and is thought to have some antibacterial benefits, which is why you’ll see it in many natural deodorants. We find it to be on the heavy side, and it has the potential to leave oil stains. Since oil stains on your clothing can be the pits, we use our hero ingredient squalane instead. This helps the deodorant glide on and leave a weightless feel. Remember that thing about not wanting to think about your deodorant? Squalane helps with that.

 Now that I’ve mentioned a couple of things that we don’t include in Squalane + Bamboo Deodorant, let’s talk about what is in it. As its name suggests, you guessed it, it contains bamboo. This amazing plant is not only a highly renewable resource, it actually has been found to effectively absorb excess moisture. This is another important point, because unlike pore clogging aluminum in antiperspirants, Squalane + Bamboo Deodorant works with your body, not against it. To explain the deal with aluminum in a little more detail, antiperspirants contain aluminum salts which stop sweat and odor by blocking sweat glands (pores), thereby stopping the body’s natural processes. The fine bamboo powder in Squalane + Bamboo Deodorant helps absorb excess moisture on the skin’s surface. It keeps you feeling fresh while allowing your body to do what it does naturally, which is detoxify itself.

In addition to moisture absorbing bamboo and weightless squalane, Squalane + Bamboo Deodorant contains super odor neutralizers ruby grapefruit, rose geranium and clary sage. Although quite effective at keeping odor at bay, this delicate essential oil blend doesn’t overpower. Again, it’s that thing about not thinking about your deodorant. We also added skin calming licorice root to help keep your sensitive pits happy.

So, if your current baking-soda laden natural deodorant is leaving irritated or the aluminum in your antiperspirant has got you feeling blocked, try our new Squalane + Bamboo Deodorant. It’s all your underarms need and nothing they don’t. No aluminum. No baking soda. No staining. No Compromise.™

My lifelong obsession with the world of beauty started at an early age and kicked off right out of high school as a makeup artist. My dreams of being the next big thing in Hollywood took a detour as I discovered esthetics and became fascinated with how the skin functions. From there I worked post-operatively with patients in a burn trauma unit, helping them care for their skin and conceal their scars. This led to product formulation and the world of aromatherapy where I began my career in product development. As a consultant for several years working with many startups, I quickly became the go-to in helping launch and rebrand product lines, my specialties in product formulation, regulatory compliant copywriting and building cohesive brand personalities. My love of natural and sustainable beauty led me to Biossance, where I happily reside as Senior Marketing Manager for new product development.

Clean, healthy hands are more important than ever.

Ever since Biossance began, we’ve been on a mission to save the ocean’s apex predators. This species has long been hunted for its squalene, an oil in their livers used in skincare and makeup products. As a vegan alternative, our scientists pioneered renewable sugarcane-derived squalane. Thanks to this innovation, 2 million of these critical members of the ocean ecosystem are saved every year.
