In my continued search for products less likely to harm me or the planet, I stumbled upon the Jäsōn Soothing Aloe Vera Pure Natural Deodorant Stick. To my enormous surprise, it works. I’ve tried others of similar ilk, i.e., Tom’s of Maine, and those crystals, and, although it was fun to wave rocks around the bathroom, no go. I like this so much I’m even willing to undergo the pain of unnecessary umlauting in order to report back.
I checked the EcoSafe database and we’re very low on the danger scale here, although not altogether at zero. Apparently it can cause irritation; I have experienced none. And if the idea of ordering from Walgreen’s over the Internet feels like a wanton use of fossil fuel, it’s stocked at Whole Foods. I’ve got your back. Yes, High WASPs are allowed to have backs, and to talk about them, as long as we don’t slouch.
Onward, with good posture, and aloe vera in all the right places.
