the main problem is the EXPENSE of products that are natural like "Burt's bees". $4 for a tube of lip balm is expensive. Most people would buy the $1 chapstick over the $4-5 burts bees just because it is SO much cheaper. same with deodorants. It's the same with shampoos. $1 for Suave, $2.50 for Garnier fructis, or $8-10 for Burts bees. that's too expensive for most individuals and families on budgets to afford.
Burt's Bees is actually a very good investment. A tube of it lasts me at least a year! And because it's so expensive, I'm extra careful it doesn't end up in the dryer. XD
Also, I love the quality of Burt's Bees so much more than Chapstick. Chapstick doesn't do much for my lips except coat them. Burt's Bees heals my lips so quickly.
I have to second the suggestion of using a crystal deodorant rock. There are various brands but all are the same product. They are the only thing that works for me - morning to night! They are no more expensive than some regular deodorants and they last more than a year, even with daily use.
I would like to use natural deodorant but they won't work for me, by midday I armpit are smelly and it is embarrassing.....any natural deodorant that strong enough for whole day????
I love the Norwex crystal deodorant; I buy it online and it works great...no dangerous ingredients. http://www.suzannesnorwexshop.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath...
