From Whole Foods to drug stores to niche apothecary vendors, natural aluminum-free deodorants are all the rage amongst men and women alike, offering a natural and effective way to use a product that actually works while minimizing potentially harmful ingredients. Countless hours are spent mulling over the best ingredients without any additives that will actually work. That’s the most common complaint about natural deodorants, actually, a general lack of efficacy. We’ve explored Malin and Goetz’s range of hair and skin products before, but their top selling SKU is actually the Eucalyptus Deodorant, a product free of any aluminum, infamous for actual effectiveness with normal daily application.
A testament to it’s working ability? The product sells more frequently to men than women, but claims both as fans and frequent replenishers. Deodorants are a product we need (usually), not just want, unfortunately they’re often know for brevity, per se, an item that seems to come and go and require frequent product replenishment. So when making an investment with more money than usual for a natural, perhaps safer alternative product, we also want to make sure A) it’s going to last, and B) it works.
In this review we tested the product to find out just that. Does it last and make the purchase worth it? Does it really work? While the second question may be dependent on individual chemistry and unique makeup, the first we can assess with a fair degree of accuracy. So for the latter we will combine personal experience with other testimonials, and see who may be best suited to purchase this product, objectively.
Review: Malin and Goetz Eucalyptus Deodorant
The company bestseller has been featured in magazines and publications for its award-winning formula for a natural deodorant product that actually works. Free of any aluminum or alcohol content, users can expect to be free of both safety concern and yellow stains to the shirt. The product is synthesized with odor-neutralizing citronellyl and fresh, natural Eucalyptus extract for effectiveness for up to 24 hours. The formulation is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive. The product allows natural functioning and even sports activities while still providing full-coverage. The product is blended to absorb without residue or any leftovers, skin irritation or pore clogging. Free of any chemical additives (scents, parabens, silicones or dyes). This is a natural product that actually stands the test of time and provides great results. While it is a bit of an investment for a deodorant, the trade off is great. After trying many types of natural deodorant products for years, I was happy to claim this as the first one to actually work and last all day. The scent is fresh and natural, and dissipates quite quickly. The words invigorating, refreshing, and clean come to mind.
Malin and Goetz Eucalyptus Deodorant: For Sensitive Skin
Malin and Goetz was founded out of a need to find simple skincare solutions for even the most sensitive skin. The line does not support overly-complicated regimens and advocates for natural approaches to varying sensitivities, concerns, and skin types. The company is family owned and operated and thrives as a New York based business, with all apothecary products handmade in Brooklyn. After one founder discovered he suffered from multiple skin concerns and conditions, he was determined to find a solution to a common problem. The company was built with the help of another partner founder with a background in architecture and design, and the pair launched profitable locations/platforms in both retail and digital spaces. The body products are all uniquely formulated to be suitable for even the most sensitive skin. The deodorant is a product that can be used even with varying skin conditions or concerns, barring any allergy. Customers with very sensitive skin are often quite thankful to have found such a suitable and effective solution to treatment.
