Beauty: Native

Something amazing about being a blogger and influencer is when you get the chance to work with brands you love and stand behind. While I always make a point of only working with brands I love, one brand that has made a large change in my life over the last year is Native. My mum and sister first introduced me to the brand last year as we have all made a change to use more natural product, and switch from antiperspirant to deodorant. If anyone has ever made this switch before, you know it can be challenging to find a product that you love. I have tried numerous aluminium- free deodorants through the years, but finally I found one that worked amazing! I will write more about my switch to deodorant below, but I really want to introduce you to a new product line that Native just launched, which has also made a big impact on my life.

BODY WASH
Native just launched a line of body wash and soap bars that are free of sulfates, phthalates and parabens. These new body washes and soap bars are filled with wholesome ingredients, such as shea butter, coconut oil and cleanser derived from coconut oil to effectively and safely keep your skin feeling hydrated. They have so many amazing scents for these body washes including: Coconut & Vanilla, Lavender & Rose, Cucumber & Mint, Eucalyptus & Mint, and Citrus & Herbal Musk, in addition to their unscented body wash. I really love their Coconut & Vanilla scent, it reminds me of being on holiday! Native carries both Men’s and Women’s deodorant lines, and these amazing scents are carried over to their body washes and soap bars. 

Body Wash Ingredients: Water, Cocamidopropyl (cleanser from coconut oil), Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate (cleansing salt), Sodium Chloride (table salt), Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (cleanser from coconut oil), Fruit Extracts/Fragrance, Sodium Salicylate (sodium salt), Sodium Benzoate (food grade salt), Citric Acid (Food Grade Acid). 
Bar Soap Ingredients: Sodium Palmate, Sodium Palm Kernelate, Water, Glycerin, Sodium Gluconate, Shea Butter, Fruit Extracts, Fragrance, Palm Acid, Titanium Dioxide, Coconut Oil, Sodium Chloride, Palm Kernel Acid. 

MY STORY
I have suffered from sensitive skin for a while and something that I have never really shared on social media is my battle with psoriasis. I started suffering from psoriasis when I was a teen and I never really got to the bottom of it until a few years ago. While seeing a dermatologist was really helpful to me, they pointed me to look at body washes and lotions I was using. When I started to do my own research, I realized that there was a connection with eczema and psoriasis and body washes that contained sulfates. I have been using sulfate free products for a while now, and my skin is clear now! It shows how much of a different one little ingredient can do to your body and the harm it was causing. 


DEODORANT
THE SWITCH
I made the switch to Native before my trip to California last Fall. If you remember, I was in San Francisco driving down highway 1 to LA, and did a multi-day back country camping trip in Yosemite. Quite a bold move to change deodorants before such a big trip! Since day one, I have never been disappointed by Native. They have some incredible different scents, as well as perfect travel size to throw in your bag! One of my favourite things is that Native has seasonal scents! This Fall they had a Pumpkin Spice Latte deodorant, and I know one of my favourites from last winter was Cranberry & Plum, so I am very excited to see the Winter seasonal pack when it comes out this year! 

The Why: I don’t expect everyone to know much about the harms of antiperspirant, I am sure you can quickly google and find out more. I will leave that up to the pros to explain, but I think it is really important to understand the ingredients that are in product you are using. Native uses simple ingredients that you can read more about on their website.
