Truly's Natural Deodorant Review

I have another awesome product that is natural to use and doesn't have any harmful chemicals in it and that is Truly's Natural Deodorant! The first thing I thought when I twisted off the cap and smelled it was that is smelled similar to coconut. Then, when I read it had Coconut Oil in it, it all made sense. If I am gonna have to smell like something natural, then coconut is a pretty darn good scent to have!

As you can see from the above picture, it lists what some of the natural ingredients are in Truly's and the Coconut Oil is right there. Unlike many natural deodorants, Truly's is not the least bit gummy or sticky, and will not leave a waxy buildup on clothing over time. Truly's goes on smooth and silky, leaving skin soft and needs no drying time. I really appreciated that because that has been a sticking point with me in the past.

I don't like to have any spots on my clothes whether from deodorant or perfume sprays so I was glad that I saw no evidence of that when I used it, especially when we went to my husband's parents on Christmas Day.  They keep it really warm in there and because of my meds, I get hot alot anyway, so being in a very warm room, I knew I was in trouble. My hair on my neck got wet and I had to pull it up and hold it for a few until my neck felt cool again. I double checked the underarms area and Thank Goodness no wet spots showed, so Truly's Deodorant was holding up nicely.

I did have to remind Mike around 4 pm that we needed to go because it takes 2 hours to get home and I don't like driving or riding at night, especially in the fog. It had been foggy all day Christmas here in North Georgia because of the mountains, so it was a slow go going there and getting back home but at least my Truly's Deodorant held up under all that pressure.

Truly's does have a Money Back Guarantee and here is a few things to help you get used to using a natural deodorant and if these still don't seem to work for you, then please, do use the Money Back Guarantee!
Be sure to wear clean clothing daily while testing our product. Truly's will keep your clothing from smelling while you are wearing them, but after a couple of days back in the drawer, they will smell of body odor if not washed.  
The money back guarantee applies to the first, single unit order per customer and we refund the purchase price only. We are sorry that we can not refund the shipping cost.  
Our guarantee applies to purchases from our website only, not to purchases in local stores as each store has different policies.
The only natural ingredients you will find in Truly's Natural Deodorant:

  • Organic coconut oil
  • Powdered sugar (Sugar, cornstarch)
  • Baking soda
  • Beeswax

    I loved their site and couldn't help but laugh at the old fashion cartoons as advertising tools. When was the last time you saw one of these? Anyway, I grabbed some just for some good old fashion laughter and to remember the good ole days when they didn't use Hollywood Movie Stars to sell everything. I am gonna sound a little off but I for one don't buy any products that use any Movie Stars to sell their products!

    If you can't stand on your own two feet and sell a product without paying someone who already makes millions, then you really don't need my business. You must be making pretty good money to pay them. Do you remember when it used to be real people or at least models who got the commercials? Now, it has to be a high end dollar star.  Well, this is one person that does not care which star endorses what. I buy what I like regardless of whether a star likes it or not. Okay, I am off the soap box now.

    But, seriously, if you are into natural products, this is one product you should definitely look up and read about it and see if it is something that you think you might like to try. Since blogging, I have found more natural products that I did not know even existed and I am so very grateful that I did because all of those chemical filled products have got to go!

    I don't know what brought on all my health issues and I certainly can't lay blame with anyone or anything, it's just a fact of life, but now that I do have health issues and because the RA meds lower my immune system, I do read labels now and try to use the most healthy products I can find. Having your immune system comprised is a serious thing and I even have to be careful not to be around people who have colds. I did have to take a flu shot and a pneumonia shot, so I think I will be okay on that front.

    Here is some other reason's why I choose natural now and why I think Truly's will be a good fit:

    Could there be harmful effects from using antiperspirants?

    Ingredients in "regular" deodorants and antiperspirants have been linked to everything from Alzheimer's disease and breast cancer to dermatitis and allergic reactions. There is a great deal of information out there on deodorant ingredients and we have cited a number of studies on our "Why Use a Natural Deodorant?" page. Here is a list of ingredients in other deodorants that we believe do not belong on your skin.

    What is NOT in Truly's Natural Deodorant:
    • Aluminum
    • Propylene glycol
    • Parabens
    • Triclosan
    • Steareth-n
    • Phthalates
    We package our deodorant in BPA-free and PVC-free food safe containers.

    They have several ways you can buy their deodorant, either in single jars, six packs, or in 5 small sample packs, which would make great travelling sizes that you can stick in your handbag so that you have one with you at all times. Never know when you might need one! Oh, by the way, each container should last about two weeks to a month with daily use.  They are 1/2 ounce size jars.

    The ones above of course, are the regular sizes but are the ones that you can buy in packs of 6 if you have a large family or just like to stock up. And that brings up another topic. If you are stocking up, you will want to know this info:
    Because of the low melting point of coconut oil, Truly's Natural Deodorant will soften if exposed to high temperatures for extended periods of time. This does not harm the product and it will solidify when returned to a cooler temperature. Works great at any temperature or consistency!

    This brings up another point. They also have natural deodorants for children, so no need to worry. Truly's Natural Deodorant is a great deodorant for kids, and is an effective, safer alternative to conventional deodorants/antiperspirants for children. Truly's is so safe that all the ingredients are edible.

    Truly's works to prevent odor without exposing kids to potentially harmful chemicals. Truly's Natural Deodorant is kid friendly and easy to apply. It does not stain clothing and washes out without a trace. It does not sting and can even be applied right after shaving (unlike mineral products). It is also fragrance free and gets its wonderful smell from organic coconut oil. Truly's is a great deodorant for kids. Trust your kids to Truly's...we do!

    I also am glad to know that it is safe for people with sensitive skin issues. Since there are only 3 natural ingredients in Truly's, there is no need to worry about having any issues with your skin if you have sensitive skin. There is no unknown chemicals or fragrances to worry about so you will feel safe using their deodorant.

    Found this in the About Us section:
    Truly's Natural Products is a small, home based business run by the Collison family in Harrington, Delaware. Angela Collison started the business due to growing demand for the natural deodorant that she was making for her friends and family.   
    Prompted by a personal health crisis and a desire to reduce her family's exposure to chemicals, Angela began researching natural ingredients and, after much experimentation, developed Truly's Natural Deodorant. Both the company and the product are named after the youngest Collison daughter, Truly Mae.  
    We are a small, family business doing our best to balance work and family life. We hope to provide a valuable service in supplying an effective, healthy alternative to conventional deodorants/antiperspirants at a fair price.  
    We are located in the small town of Harrington, Delaware, and started making Truly's Natural Deodorant in 2010. This is our first year selling our product in our online shop.

    I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

    I've yet to try a natural deodorant. This one sounds nice and I like that it comes in sample sizes, so I can throw one in my purse for reapplication. Thanks for the ingredient list--it's a nice change to see stuff I actually recognize!
