Pits; everyone has them, and they can stink and make your clothes wet. But worse than the odor is the chemicals used on this delicate place. If you have been considering a natural deodorant, consider Bar-Maids Probiotic Deodorant. It is aluminum, paraben, and phthalate free and currently offered in 2 sizes and two scents. Give your pits a breather! You could come out smelling like a rose (geranium) – which, by the way, will be released in January.
