This dilemma is what started the quest for the makers of ZNaturalLife. Deodorants have used similar recipes for years without much change. You can find solids, semi solids, crystals, paste, etc. ZNaturalLife believes in living naturally from the food we eat to the products that are used on your skin. I whole heartedly believe in this as we try to do the same.
This is the perfect time to try it out with somewhat warm temps. ZLife deodorant is a cream type consistency that comes in a tube style container. I dislike putting deodorant on with my hands, so this makes me extremely happy. The Z Natural Life deodorant seems to absorb quickly and work well. I sweat a lot, so I tend to reapply mid-day. While its only starting to get warm now in the Pacific Northwest, I have noticed that I’m not smelling or perspiring a lot. The deodorant has no powder in it, but they do sell a separate body powder formula for those of us who need it. So far I haven't needed it in addition to the deodorant but its pretty easy to apply.
