My whole life I’ve been using spray on deodorant. That wonderful chemical concoction that I would happily spray onto one of the most sensitive areas on my body in the hopes that I could make it throughout the day without stinking up the place.
Then one day I came home and noticed the coffee table was looking pretty streaky so I grabbed the glass cleaner and gave it a quick clean. Soon after my little baby boy comes over with his drink and he managed to spill some on the table. Being a good boy he tried to clean it up by licking the spilt drink off of the table and this really led to me thinking about how bad these chemicals really are. How we spray them in our homes, on the surfaces we eat off and all around our families too.
So immediately my family made the change to using chemical free cleaning products as this was clearly the way to go in keeping my family healthy. Truth is, no-one really knows what these chemicals do to a person over time, but you can only imagine that it’s not good for us at all.
Once we had done this, we had decided to take it one step further and use more natural products for our bodies. With the skin being the largest organ, it’s scary to think about all of the nasty stuff that is being absorbed by our skin every time we use them.
But there was just that one product that we couldn’t find that didn’t cost the earth, and that was deodorant. Even the products claiming to be all natural still had a bunch of bad stuff that wasn’t good for you, so what was a girl to do?
My partner and I started working hard on our own solution that would kick some ass and keep our pits fresh all day long, while more importantly being free of any nasty chemicals.
When we finally got the formula right and after a lot of trial and error we found that this stuff is literally like a pot of gold!
You only need to apply it once in the morning and you’re sweet as for the rest of the day. I’ve being doing Crossfit for a while now and at first, I was really embarrassed because my regular aluminium based deodorant was not actually working all that well and I was starting to get a bit smelly. As soon as I switched over to our new TANKIS deodorants, it was like magic. Just needed to rub on a little extra before my workout and BOOM! The stink was gone.
I soon started to tell the tale of this amazing product that actually worked and suddenly friends, co-workers, family members and complete strangers were getting in touch to try it out and they’ve kept coming back for more.
I think it’s great that people are becoming increasingly aware of what they’re not only putting into their body but also what they’re putting onto their body. I’m happy with the changes I’ve made and I love how I’ve got this amazing product that does a better job than conventional deodorant, lasts a hell of a lot longer and is made with simple, natural ingredients.
