A Review of Primal Pit Paste


Deodorant is controversial stuff. Well, maybe not the deodorant itself, it might just be the spread of new information that gets touchy. I posted on Facebook about how some of the ingredients in big brand name deodorants were being linked to breast cancer. Instead of people saying, “Oh wow, that’s disturbing, I want to read more about that,” they said, “That’s ridiculous! I need my deodorant! I would never go without deodorant. Gross!”

Let’s dial it back down to sane and rational. I like my deodorant too. I want to wear deodorant. I didn’t suggest we stop using it. I was suggesting maybe we stop using brands with harmful ingredients. We are becoming more accepting of the information that we should avoid toxic chemicals in our food. I hope we can accept that the same might be true for what we put on our bodies.

I have been using Primal Pit Paste for about two weeks now. It does two things for me. Really the only two things that I need deodorant to do for me. 1. It doesn’t break my armpits out. I wanted to do this review because I have struggled big time with my armpits and deodorant. I have severely sensitive skin. My armpits break out into puffy, itchy, peely grossness. There have been times where I have had to stop using deodorant all together and just apply cortisone cream 3 times a day. 2. It has no harmful chemicals in it. I am always interested in the research that links various diseases, including cancer, to the chemicals in our food and personal care products. Is there proof that these chemicals cause cancer? No, there is not. But I’m not going to wait around for proof when no such thing really ever exists. All I need is a link or a suspicion and I’m out. There are so many alternative options now. Why risk it?

Primal Pit Paste has a big selection of products made with natural and organic ingredients that are safe for you and your little ones. I want parents to have all of the information so that they can make the decisions that are best for their families. I am concerned about the chemicals in the food and products that we use every single day. Clean products give us clean bodies, clean boobies and clean breastmilk. Be sure to check out all of the products including lip balm, tooth paste, breath freshener, powder, lotion, sugar scrub and mood mist.
