I’m sure you have seen Kopari deodorant floating around the interweb. It was a popular sponsored post for many bloggers towards the end of summer.
I have been on a quest for a good aluminum free clean deodorant that WORKS. I’ve tried Native, Schmidt’s, Holly’s Keeping it Real, Young Living, and probably others. None of them worked. Not a single one.
My hormones are really out of whack– I’m in the early stages of menopause at the age of 30. I’m gonna just be real.. I have had the worst smelling underarms since this shift. I never used to stink. I don’t really sweat much, which I found out is a trait of Fabry disease, but I somehow still end up smelly. Cool.
Needless to say, I was a skeptic. I had so much deodorant in my cabinet that didn’t work for me. But, I was desperate. I ordered some (with my own money) to try.
Kopari is aluminum free, non-GMO, paraben free, silicone free, phthalate free, and baking soda free! SO good.
In short, I’m converted.
The first week or two, I was still stinky– maybe even stinkier than before. Your body will go through a detox period where you STINK. I’ve even heard of people getting black/grey spots on their shirts from all of the garbage detoxing out of your skin from conventional deodorant. YIKES! You can apply more throughout the day, and you will want to during the detox phase.
It has such a light and pleasant scent of coconut. I love it. They also have a fragrance free option. It glides on smoothly, which is also a nice change from other clean deodorants. This is more of a gel than a solid, so there aren’t any chunks that you have to rub in. It also doesn’t contain any baking soda, which is great for sensitive skin like mine! You’ll see a lot of clean deodorant websites with reviews talking about uncomfortable rashes developing from the baking soda. It’s no fun. Kopari doesn’t have any of that.
One of my concerns was that my clothes would get stained since it is made with coconut oil. I haven’t had any oil stains on my shirts, which is another huge relief.
I have been using this deodorant for several months now, and I am so pleased with it. I no longer smell like a man and don’t have gross clumps of baking-soda-deodorant collecting in the crevices of my underarms.
If you want to try it out for yourself, you can use this link to get $10 off your first order with Kopari. They have many personal care products if you are on the market, but I can’t speak for those. I did get a free mini sample of the coconut crush scrub, and it was great.
Whether you buy Kopari or not, PLEASE take care of your body and get an aluminum free deodorant.
