I first started to give serious thought to the ingredients in commercial deodorants as my daughters were approaching their teenage years. There was no way I was going to stand by and allow them to apply a range of ingredients I didn't trust to their young skin.
When researching alternatives I purchased deodorants from a range of brands but I found that they either had to be re-applied several times during the day (the water/alcohol with essential oils type) or they irritated due to the sodium bicarbonate (the ingredient that made them effective).
Our balm is supplied in a twist up applicator and contains ingredients that help absorb wetness and discourage the development of odour. After many months of testing through a hot summer we've been really happy with the feedback from our many human testers (thank you to the brave souls who put their reputation on the line to test this formula).
Please keep in mind that this product is not an anti perspirant. Your body will sweat as normal, a function we believe is good and healthy.
Free from Aluminium, Alum and Sodium Bicarbonate.
I reckon your mens bar is better for shaving than a can of foam- I get a smoother longer lasting shave with it. This will be a great bar for travelling - only one item to pack into my mens kit to cover showering, shaving and shampooing. Shampoo and shave cream take up so much space. The other plus - no need for aftershave moisturiser for shave burn.
Melissa's note: When travelling it can be a good idea to cut your bar in half. It's not always easy to allow it to dry as much as you'd like but if it's smaller it will dry more easily and you'll have another half stashed away to use later.

I have been using the Olive Crush each night I shower and it was really lovely to use and I was pleasantly surprised to say it lasted about four weeks. It did not affect my dermatitis, which is pleasing to note.
I have passed on your website to a couple of friends who also have problems of same or different nature to mine and suggest they look at what is on offer.
Thank you once again and I most definately will circulate the quality of your product.

When my first one is finished I will definitely be back for another. I love it.

Just a quick thank you to Washpool Farm for getting my soaps out so quickly. They arrived today, not even 48hrs later. :) They smell beautiful and I can't wait to try one out tonight. I bought them to go with individually made personalised hampers for my Christmas gifts and picked out the lemon myrtle one and the pink salt one for myself (will let that one dry for a while first - thanks for the note). I love lemon myrtle so I think that's my pick for tonight :) I decided on a handmade and healthy eco friendly theme and to support the Australian people and families and am excited to include them in my gift giving. Cheers, Rochelle
