Why Organic Deodorant Costs More

women with arms up, so her armpits are visable, and a stack of dollar bills, why organic deodorant costs more

I am sure by now you have at least a little understanding of why using organic deodorant is a good idea.  But if you are switching from conventional deodorant to natural deodorant, you could be shocked by the price tag!  After all the antiperspirant from the dollar store works, so why should switching to natural cost so much more?  There are a few reasons:

1.  Quality ingredients just cost more.  Here at Island Deodorant in our most popular deodorant we use coconut oil, corn starch, baking soda (which is naturally aluminum-free), candelilla wax, jojoba oil, and probiotics.  Most of our ingredients are available as organic, so we use organic when possible.  

2. Bigger companies (think P&G) are mass producing their deodorants by the hundreds of thousands.  That kind of volume brings serious buying power.

3. Small businesses making organic deodorants run production in the thousands.  And add to that the quality ingredients being used, often food quality, and that's where the price difference it.  

So while at first glance our deodorant looks expensive, when you factor in that we have a money back guarantee that means you can try it risk free!  And if you try it and like it, we offer multi packs with big savings so you can spend less per stick, and we do sales around Black Friday and often at the start of summer, so you can stock up and save.

Why is natural deodorant more expensive?  It comes down to using quality, food safe ingredients, and less buying power then the monster brands.  

Is organic deodorant better for you?  We think so!  But you should do your own research and decide for yourself if you should make the switch.

Is natural deodorant really worth it?  People who have had health issues from using conventional deodorants will tell you they are happy to pay the higher prices for safe, non-toxic, completely natural deodorant that works.  I frequently hear from people that as the years go by they find their armpit odor is less and less.  

Should I use organic deodorant?  We think so!  Our original formula works really, really well for more people, and it has a money back guarantee, so why not give it a try and see what you think?
