Body care brand Green Goo has introduced a line of herbal deodorants: Plants for Your Pits.
Featured: Formulating on Trend: AHA Deodorant
The deodorants are a radical departure from traditional deodorants in the marketplace in that they combine botanical ingredients and essential oils to also help enhance the way we think and feel."
Green Goo utilized its proprietary lipid-infusion process to maximize potency and purity in the deodorants, which are formulated with a variety of plants, herbs and essential oils. The products are said to not only minimize moisture and control odor, but also to enhance cognitive function, support the immune system, and provide balance and calmness to the user.
The Plants for Your Pits deodorant line is available in three options:
- Clarity + Focus has the bright, crisp aroma of grapefruit, which is also a natural astringent and stimulant rich in beta carotene and lycopene. Balanced with ginger and patchouli, and fortified with a vitamin- and antioxidant-rich infusion of rosemary, sage and ginkgo biloba, this botanical blend reportedly helps invigorate the mind, elevate mood and sharpen senses.
- Immunity + Defense boasts the earthy and spicy aroma of cedarwood, Siberian fir and cardamom. This balancing formula, infused with adaptogenic reishi mushrooms and echinacea, helps provide natural protection, restoration and support.
- Relax + Adapt features the soft floral and woody aromas of lavender and clary sage, mixed with the citrus tang of vitamin A- and C-rich bergamot. Infused with ashwagandha, holy basil and lemon balm, this cooling, antioxidant blend helps to provide calming, stress-reducing comfort, uplift and adaptability.
"Our Plants for Your Pits deodorant line was born while exploring ways in which we could expand the overall health and wellness benefits of everyday products," said Jodi Scott, Green Goo CEO and co-founder. "While studying the transdermal absorption of botanicals through the skin and understanding increased absorption rates in our armpit area, [which is] composed mainly of soft tissue and a large number of lymph nodes, which are an important part of our body's immune system, we challenged ourselves to create a deodorant line that could do so much more than simply reduce wetness and manage odor. The Plants for Your Pits deodorants are a radical departure from traditional deodorants in the marketplace in that they combine botanical ingredients and essential oils to also help enhance the way we think and feel."
