Watch out for them and read the labels so you can make an informed choice about what you put on your skin.
This classification of essential oil has been used to describe essential oils that have been known to assist with uterine health and menstrual regularity. For this reason we recommend that only the Citrus Fresh can be used in pregnancy as there are no traces of emmenogogue essential oils in this fragrance. The Wild Lavender can be used after the first trimester.
We have two formulations for pregnancy, Citrus Fresh as it contains no emmenagogue essential oils and Wild Lavender that can be used after the first trimester.
The other deodorants in our range contain insignificant amounts of emmenagogue essential oils. Whilst there have been no clinical trials that have suggested that small amounts of emmenagogue essential oils have caused a menstrual cycle during pregnancy, aromatherapy literature regarding essential oils suggest and recommend that emmenagogue essential oils shouldn’t be used during pregnancy. As such, have included this on our deodorant labels. We would prefer our customers to understand that there are emmenagogue essential oils in the formula, especially during the very special time of pregnancy.
No, there’s NO aluminium in our deodorants! Zero, zilch, nada! Our bodies are born to breathe and regulate core body temperature. Aluminium chlorohydrate that’s found in commercial deodorants, blocks the sweat glands and stops your body from perspiring. This causes stress and toxicity build up behind the sweat glands. (That’s often why you have to go through an armpit detox if your switching over to natural for the first time.)
Fresca Natural deodorants, don’t block your pores and provides a balanced alkalizing environment on the skin. Bacteria can’t live on the skin in this alkalizing environment, therefore you can still perspire but with no pong. Great.
Fresca Natural deodorants are more than just deodorants because our essential oils also provide mental aromatherapy benefits to assist with your mood and healthy thoughts.
There’s lots to love with Fresca Natural deodorants.
Yes, our deodorants are suitable for children, tweens and teens. Our deodorants are 100% natural and contain no chemicals. Fragrances recommended for children are Wild Lavender or Jaisara for the girls and Wooden Spice or Ocean for the boys. These fragrances contain essential oils blends that are soothing on the skin, great for emotional balance and calmness.
Fresca Natural does not test our products on animals. We have been accredited by the Choose Cruelty Free Organisation (Australia). All our products are Vegan and Gluten Free.
Yes! Our award winning formulation dries quickly on the skin and creates an environment where the bacteria that causes your body odour cannot live on your skin as the formula is alkaline. This allows for your armpits to breathe naturally, there will be some perspiration on hot days and when doing strenuous exercise and activities but that’s the normal way your body cools itself. If your sweatglands are blocked from chemicals such as aluminium chlorohydrate, this stops the body from excreting the sweat that helps keep our core temperature at its optimum.
Our formula is the same great fresh and protecting formula that we started with over 10 years ago. Still keeping people fresh and with peace of mind that what they are putting under their armpits is natural and chemical free.
I have received so many testimonials from customers that can’t believe it really works! I am especially happy to hear from people that use my deodorants who play netball, cycle, tennis, run, do yoga, zumba and are generally busy, active people doing exercise. Being active is a positive choice for a healthy lifestyle. (Make sure your diet is clean and healthy too. Reduce the amount of processed foods you each day and soon enough you won’t miss them!)
Hydraskin elixir won the inuagural Australian Non-Toxic Award 2019 for the Category Skincare: Facial Serum! (These awards are now called the Clean and Conscious Awards since 2021.)
Contrary to all the marketing hype that oil on your skin will make you break-out- WHEN you use high quality oils that are good for the skin, the opposite will happen.
The 21 oils in the Hydraskin Elixir have incredible skin benefit properties that are actually visible from the moment you apply it to your skin. It helps your body to be able to generate healthy skin cells from deep within the dermal layer and my formulation of oils leaves your skin glowing, not greasy and oily.
Common properties of numerous essential oils in my Hydraskin Elixir will assist with balancing sebum control on your skin. In easy English, it will help your skin if it’s oily, dry or normal. Why? My Hydraskin Elixir is a unique blend of essential oils in a beautiful light cold pressed base of carrier oils that will help your skin become healthier, plump and assist with age related signs of wrinkles, blemishes and dry patches. It’s suitable for all skin types and any age.
I have customers that use it for their dry cuticles, dry elbows, eczema and other skin problems.
It cleans, nourishes and hydrates your skin all at the same time. You might think it’s too good to be true- but it’s Mother Nature at work here. And she is an incredible healer and nurturer to human kind.
I lost a few close friends to different types of cancers and I have two little girls of my own. I became increasingly conscious of all the chemicals that go into cosmetic products and decided that I didn’t want to put chemicals right next to my major lymph glands right next to my armpits.
I have had very sensitive skin under my arms all my life. As a child I remember them always being red and itchy and my mother would apply a chamomile ointment on them to help reduce the inflammation.
When I decided to try out natural deodorants that were available, I was always disappointed that they didn’t work, made me smell so much worse or irritated my skin. I made my deodorant for me and now I am able to share it to the world. I have been using it now since 2010 without any of these problems. My customers love my deodorants, it works for them and contains no nasty chemicals. It’s my dream to help heal the world one armpit at a time! I love the application from a roll-on bottle. It’s fast and convenient and there’s no waste with the product or messy fingers.
