Use Safe Hygiene Products And Save

by Pam on August 5, 2010

After speaking with a friend of mine who is studying holistic nutrition, she made me aware of the dangers involved in using some of the everyday products we take for granted.  For example, there are harmful chemicals found in many brand name deodorants that I had never thought twice about purchasing in the past.  Apparently these chemicals are absorbed by the body and can cause problems including cancer.

I decided to be more particular about what I bought from that point on.  I was able to find a deodorant comprised of 70% organic ingredients.  It cost about $5 more than the regular deodorants I had purchased in the past.  Unfortunately, it didn’t really work very well. I still didn’t want to go back to buying the harmful products so I decided to try out Norwex’s Crystal Deodorant. For those of you who don’t know about Norwex, it’s a company with the mission of providing cleaning and hygiene products that don’t contain harmful chemicals.

The Crystal Deodorant cost me $12.99 and since I consider myself to be fairly frugal, it seemed like an awful lot of money to be forking over for deodorant.  As it turns out, the deodorant seems to work really well, thankfully, and if it lasts at least a year then I will have more than made up for the money I would have spent on regular deodorant.  In fact, I think it might even last longer than that.

So, even though organic products can seem really expensive when you first make your purchase, if you can find one that works effectively, it is likely going to end up costing you less in the end both in terms of your pocketbook, but even more importantly, in terms of your health.  When it comes to the things you put on or into your body, you want to make sure that the ingredients are not going to harm you.  The cheapest products are not always the best products, and certainly not when it comes to your deodorant.
