With ‘clean-beauty‘ being a big selling point in the beauty industry in most recent years, I can’t say that this is the main factor that drives my beauty purchases. I do like the thought of using only naturally-derived products, but to me, it isn’t realistic. Chemical-free isn’t exactly a thing. Everything is a chemical. You can’t escape it.
However, natural deodorants for me is a must. Ever since being pregnant and breastfeeding, I have been really conscious about using aluminum-free products due to the possible long-term dangers. But, with that being said, natural deodorants have been a big old game of chance. While I have had varying levels of success trying almost every natural deodorant I’ve come into contact with, I am yet to find one that ticks all the boxes. You would think that finding a deodorant that actually works, doesn’t stain my clothes, doesn’t make me smell worse, and comes in the form of a roll on wouldn’t be a hard find, but apparently, it is. Really bloody hard.
So, when a brand I have really enjoyed in the past released an aluminum-free natural alternative to traditional deodorants, I couldn’t ‘add-to-cart’ quick enough.
Introducing the Kopari Natural Coconut Deodorant
What They Say?
Kopari’s natural coconut deodorant contains a 100% plant-based active that is non-toxic and provides odour protection while simultaneously warding off the bacteria that causes it in the first place. It glides on clear, will outlast your longest days, and leaves you smelling like fresh coconut milk. New to clean deodorants? Don’t sweat it, there may be a short detox period.
Packaging and Formula
Housed in a hard plastic twist-up tube, Kopari Coconut deodorant is really user-friendly. There is no mess, no leaking and best of all no gross slimy fingers. The formula is so different from most natural deodorants, in that it is thin, smooth and completely clear. The coconut fragrance is actually really lovely. When I first hear coconut, I think sickly sweet artificial coconut lollies, but this is soft, creamy and subtle.
How Does Kopari Natural Coconut Deodorant Perform?
In the past, similar products have worked initially then after a week or so, started to make me smell worse than usual. But, not Kopari. After using this for over a month, I can confidently say that this is still working really well. Rarely do I feel the need to ‘top-up’ throughout the day nor do I smell worse, or feel the desperate need to shower at lunchtime. I’ve been testing this on those long, muggy February days, where just breathing will make you work up a sweat, and the stench-free results have been so so so impressive. Longevity is great.
What I Say?
Kopari Natural Coconut Deodorant is the best natural deodorant I have used to date. It ticks all the boxes and then some. My white t-shirts aren’t discoloured, I don’t smell in the slightest, and the formula is light and doesn’t crumble away. The fragrance is lovely and the application is easy and mess-free. My armpits aren’t sore or sensitised, instead, they somehow feel softer. The best. If you want a natural deodorant that actually does what it promises, try Kopari.
Keep in mind, that if you are new to natural deos, there will be a detox period where you will be a little stinky but it’s worth it.
I will also update this post if at any stage this bad boy begins not working for me.
