We Review Primal Pit Paste

All-natural beauty products can be a great way to spruce up your beauty regime, and an all-natural deodorant can be a healthy way to keep body odor at bay. So when we were contacted to review Primal Pit Paste, an all-natural deodorant paste, we were curious. Here's what we thought:
A Little About Primal Pit Paste
According to the Primal Pit Paste website, it was born out of a desire to have a more kid-friendly deodorant that could withstand tough workouts and hot days. The ingredients of Primal Pit Paste are basic and all-natural, and they include organic coconut oil, organic shea butter, organic arrowroot powder, aluminum free baking soda, and essential oils. In addition to these ingredients, the deodorant stick also has beeswax as one of its ingredients. The pucker paste only has organic coconut oil, organic shea butter, organic beeswax, and essential oils. That's it! The paste comes in a jar, and each time you use it, you are only supposed to use a pea-sized amount on each armpit. They even have lighter or stronger formulations available, as well as a paste available for sensitive skin. There are options for kids and well as for adults.
Some Things We Liked About Primal Pit Paste
There are several things we really liked about Primal Pit Paste, with the first being that it really works! Two of us here at TDS headquarters tried out the products - one tried the paste and one tried the natural deodorant stick. We used a very small amount daily, and the two of us that tried it never noticed any odor. Primal Pit Paste lasted through after-work workouts and several multiple-mile, warm weather trail runs, all with no odor! It has a nice, mild scent that doesn't overpower. And you don't need to use very much at all - in fact a small amount is plenty.
We also tried the pucker paste, which is really fantastic chapstick! It helped keep chapped lips away during long trail runs and windy beach days.
What to Think About Before Buying Primal Pit Paste
Primal Pit Paste is available for purchase on their website, and depending on whether you purchase the paste or the stick, the cost will range from $8.95 to $10.95. Depending on where you live and where you shop, this might be a little more than the cost of traditional deodorant. However, remember that you do not need to use very much Primal Pit Paste for it to work. A jar of Primal Pit Paste will likely last quite some time, and this factor may reconcile the fact that it is a few dollars more than your typical deodorant product. Plus there are no extra additives in the product, only natural ingredients.
In our opinion, we also found that the Primal Pit Paste Natural Deodorant Stick was, at times, just a little bit stickier than the paste. As the Primal Pit Paste website explains, everyone's body chemistry is a little different, so some formulations might work better for some than for others. So what was sticky for one, might not be for another. And both products worked very well at keeping body odor away.
And that's it! We recommend Primal Pit Paste as a great natural deodorant alternative if you are looking for a deodorant without additional chemicals or additives.
