If you’re one of those people who doesn’t sweat, you’re either a) not working out or b) expelling the heat elsewhere. Not that I’ve done any scientific studies on this, but come on, we all sweat!

I scoured the shelves and tested several “healthy” deodorant brands, but mostly I just ended up with “unsure” arms and feeling like I wasted a lot of money. I love Tom’s of Maine for things like toothpaste, but their deodorant just wasn’t cutting it.

Lavanila has no harsh ingredients like aluminum — which could lead to heavy metal buildup in the body and is believed to be associated with Alzheimer’s disease. It also smells lovely — like a blend of lavender and vanilla. I was only able to find it at Sephora. But be sure to call and ask them if they carry it before making the trek. I had to visit 3 stores before I found it. Stay fresh and let me know what you think!
