Kiss My Face Liquid Rock Deodorant
by Dana Vigilante
We have recently gone "green" in every aspect of our lives. Although for the past several years we have been extremely conscious of our decisions regarding electricity, water, energy, etc.... we've recently done a complete overhaul of our cleaning, beauty and personal care products.
I've never been one to delve into the world of natural deodorants because I was never convinced that they would work. However, after reading just what's in our regular deodorants in "Gorgeously Green", I decided to try to make the switch. And I did so very half-heartedly.
A few months ago while doing my weekly shopping at Whole Foods, I purchased Kiss My Face Liquid Rock Deodorant, and I only did so because there were trial sizes of it. This has become one of my favorite all-time products. I cannot believe that it actually beat out my other choices. I stay completely dry and odor-free for as long as I go between showers. I usually shower every morning and then again at night, but recently, we took a 19 hour flight. I applied this four hours before we left, and didn't shower until three hours after we landed, and I was completely dry and had absolutely no odor.
I love this product so much that I wrote to Kiss My Face and let them know it. My only disapointment is that it took me so long to discover it. I highly recommend this to anyone on the fence about going natural. Buy the trial size, if you don't like it, you've only lost $1.50.
Thank you Dana. Your review is quite helpful.
As I do with all products below are the ingredients for Kiss My Face Liquid Rock Deodorant Fragrance Free.(I don't which one Dana chose so I looked for their latest version.)
There are several versions of this product available both with and without fragrance. This particular one being one of their newest formulations does not contain parabens so be aware that there may be some out there that still contain parabens.
Aqua, Potasssium Alum, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Salix Alba (Willow Bark Extract/Extrait d'ecorse de saule), Usnea Barbata (Lichen Extract/Extrait de lichen), Sodium Phytate, Phenoxyethanol, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate
This product is rated a 2 with the Skin Deep Database. The only ingredients of any concern was the preservatives phenoxyethanol and potassium sorbate both of which are rated a 3 (moderate safety) on the Database mainly because of their potential to cause allergic reactions.
The potassium alum mentioned is a different form of aluminum that does not seem to absorb into the skin like aluminum does. The larger particle size seems to make the difference.
I was not able to find any info on the Kiss My Face site in regards to animal testing. This is one of the first bits of info I look for when considering a product.
