What Goes On? Ingredients With Purpose

Green Tidings was founded on the objective to create products with a "skin first" mindset. This objective naturally, (pun!) led us to explore ingredients that are naturally derived. We have crafted our deodorant by combining key ingredients that not only combat odor but also promote overall skin health. Let's dive into the science behind each component and understand how they work synergistically to keep you feeling fresh throughout the day.

  1. Coconut Oil: Coconut oil serves as the base of our formula, offering a multitude of benefits. Its natural antibacterial and antifungal properties help combat odor-causing bacteria on the skin. Additionally, coconut oil provides a moisturizing effect, keeping your underarms nourished and irritation-free.

  2. Tapioca Starch: Tapioca starch is a natural absorbent that helps control moisture. By absorbing excess sweat, it contributes to a dry and comfortable feeling, preventing the conditions that foster the growth of odor-producing bacteria.

  3. Baking Soda: Baking soda, or sodium bicarbonate, is a powerful natural deodorizer. It helps neutralize odors by balancing pH levels and creating an environment where bacteria struggle to thrive. This, in turn, keeps unwanted smells at bay.

  4. Shea Butter: Shea butter is renowned for its moisturizing and nourishing properties. In our deodorant formula, it helps soothe and condition the skin, providing a smooth application and preventing dryness.

  5. Candelilla Wax: Candelilla wax serves as a natural stabilizer and emollient, contributing to the deodorant's texture and consistency. It helps the product stay in place, ensuring lasting freshness throughout the day.

  6. Magnesium Oil: Magnesium oil plays a crucial role in neutralizing odor and supporting skin health. Its antimicrobial properties help combat bacteria, while magnesium itself is known to soothe skin and reduce irritation.

  7. Essential Oils: Our deodorant features a thoughtfully selected blend of essential oils for a delightful scent and additional benefits. These oils, such as lavender, ylang ylang, or jasmine, contribute antimicrobial properties and add a natural fragrance without relying on synthetic perfumes.

Together, these ingredients create a powerful, nature-inspired solution that not only addresses body odor but also cares for your skin. It's important to note that this break down of ingredients should be done with not only our products, but every product you intend to put on your body. Find your body wash, deodorant, shampoo, or any other skin care item you use and find out what the ingredients are doing for your skin and the purpose they serve. By understanding your ingredients, you can better navigate what works for your skin and what doesn't.
