Caticorn Dreams Charcoal Vegan Deodorant Review

If you’re a breastfeeding mom, then you’ve probably faced the problem of having smelly pits. At first, I thought it was just my imagination when I thought that my armpits were sweating more and quite frankly, was starting to be smelly as compared to before I got pregnant. However, after looking at online forums, a lot of breastfeeding moms actually had the same problem. They too started to having an odor emanating from their underarms since they’ve started breastfeeding.

Since the underarms are too close to the breast, breastfeeding moms definitely have to be careful with what they apply there especially since the underarm sweat could travel to the breast and maybe to your baby’s mouth. Moms have to beware of antiperspirants as the aluminum in the antiperspirants could be potentially harmful to your baby or at least that’s what I have read before.

As someone who has been breastfeeding for more than two years and is planning to breastfeed beyond that, I always enjoy discovering organic beauty products. Today, I’m excited to share with you a beauty product that will help breastfeeding moms with their armpit odor problem that is not only organic but is vegan as well. Best of all, it’s locally made!

Caticorn Dreams Mineralized Vegan Deodorant
Introducing Caticorn Dreams Mineralized Vegan Deodorant, a 100% Vegan and cruelty-free deodorant formulated by certified aromatherapist Jirbie Go who is from the New York Institute of Aromatic Studies. It is made with magnesium oil which will re-mineralize the body while neutralizing the body odor. This vegan deodorant includes an easy-to-absorb form of magnesium, magnesium is essential for energy production in cells and is considered to be the fourth most important mineral in the body.

Free from the following ingredients
No baking soda which can cause irritations
No parabens
No aluminum which causes skin darkening
No alcohol which is an irritant
No phthalates which are endocrine disruptors
No synthetic fragrances which is also why it’s perfect for breastfeeding moms as perfumed deodorants can confuse newborns who latch by scent

Safe for pregnant and breastfeeding moms.

Key Ingredients
Aloe soothes and conditions the skin.
Arrowroot Powder absorbs moisture and is predominantly known for its soothing.
Jojoba Oil mimics the skin’s natural sebum which makes it perfect for people with ultra sensitive skin and it is also the only non-staining oil.
Magnesium Oil aids in reducing skin oiliness and reduces stress-related skin irritations.
Shea Butter and Cocoa Butter moisturize and soothe irritated skin.
Essential Oils acts as a natural fragrance and also holds skin-benefitting properties.
Kaolin Clay absorbs moisture.
Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide) helps visibly improve the appearance of uneven skin tone, fine lines, wrinkles and dullness.
Vitamin E (Tocopherol) serves as a preservative and is an antioxidant.
Witch Hazel helps shrink pores to reduce sweating.

Caticorn Dreams Mineralized Vegan Deodorant is in no way inferior to your regular deodorant. Rather, it seems to work even better than the other regular deodorants that I have tried as it can keep my armpits sweat-free without blocking my pores, thanks to the kaolin clay.

To truly see just how effective this deodorant is, I applied it on my right armpit. After four hours, my left armpit was sweaty and had bad odor while my right armpit which had deodorant was sweat-free and had only a faint odor which you can only smell if your nose is close enough, which in my husband’s case, he could only smell a faint trace when his nose was less than half an inch away from my armpits.

Neutralizes Odor
I tried using the deodorant mid-day (without applying it on the morning) and the odor was immediately neutralized, it also absorbed the sweat as my armpits didn't feel moist anymore after applying the deodorant. Of course, it's still better to use the deodorant on newly washed armpits so that the skin is clean. I applied the deodorant on my hands first before applying it to my armpits for hygienic purposes since I applied the deodorant on sweaty pits.

Texture-wise, the Caticorn Dreams Vegan Deodorant has a balm-like texture, it also has a soothing peppermint scent. On the skin, it has a transparent and glossy finish, much like a balm’s. It is not sticky nor does it annoy me, it’s quite comfortable so it doesn’t bother me in the slightest.
