LIPS & PITS

Our lips and arm pits are very delicate and unique places on our bodies. They are exposed daily to lip balms, lip sticks and deodorants that we use. Therefore, ensuring these are non-toxic AND nourishing is vital.

Most mainstream lip balms are petroleum based. This a non-renewable, and not moisturizing for your lips. It only creates a barrier, and you ingest it. As you continue to use the petroleum balm your lips can end up lazy at looking after themselves, thus you end up using more!

Natural lip balms have nourishing oils, butters and waxes as their base. This means the skin on your lips are being moisturized, and cared for.

Going natural with your deodorant means you avoid exposure to toxic aluminum, parabens, fragrance concoctions and triclosan found in many off-the-shelf brands. We know it can be challenging finding a deodorant that works, so here are three great ones to try!

Erica Brooke – Deodorant Creme

Erica Brooke Skincare came to life almost 12 years ago, but has really begun making an impact 3 years ago.

With a desire to spread the love of small batch eco luxe products with more people before “small batch” was even a thing, Erica began creating, learning and practising this unique craft. Falling in love with organic skincare formulation, Erica knew this was the life for her.

We source the highest quality ingredients and always choose organic when possible. The range now includes a collection of hard working deodorant crèmes, cleansers, a silky smooth serum, oils, exfoliants, moisturisers and divine balms.

Every ingredient serves a purpose and is helping to make a difference to the skin and Earth. We love to align the brand with other companies that do good, from our unrefined fair trade Shea Butter and Coconut Oil to our chosen charity Days for Girls.

Sharing the love and importance of natural skincare is what lights us up and it is so amazing seeing this change in the beauty and skincare industry.

A seriously hard working eco luxe deodorant that is just as good as the big name natural deodorants on the market.

Please be aware that if you are new to natural and aluminium free deodorants, then a 2 week detox period is very normal and in fact your body may need it.

This deodorant allows your body to sweat naturally but it will neutralise odours keeping you smelling fresh like a sweet Vanilla Orange blossom.

Please keep these deodorants out of direct sunlight. If your deodorant does happen to become soft or separate just give it a good stir and pop it in the freezer until it hardens up again. This will not affect the product at all.

Alex & Aloe – Natural Deodorant

There have been years of hard work formulating and reformulating many of the products in the Alex & Aloe range. Sarah and Marie, creators of Alex & Aloe, believe they have finally developed products of the highest standard.

The shift to become a brand that created products that are 100% natural, organic & active came after many years of both ladies struggling with skin & food allergies.  “We wanted to know not only what we putting in our bodies but, also the effect that our everyday lifestyle products had on our bodies.”

The Alex & Aloe range of products are also preservative free or contain naturally derived preservatives that are paraben & formaldehyde free as these particular ingredients have been known to disrupt hormones.

Alex & Aloe – Vegan Lip Balm

With an idea that started back in 2002 from working in the beauty industry, a passion sparked with wanting to know first-hand how skincare was created and the ingredients involved, and so, studying cosmetic chemistry, personal care formulation and the art of chandlery (candle making) began.

There have been years of hard work formulating and reformulating many of the products in the Alex & Aloe range. Sarah and Marie, creators of Alex & Aloe, believe they have finally developed products of the highest standard.

We never test on animals and are vegan friendly.

The Alex & Aloe lip balm provides a soothing & hydrating barrier to protect the lips from dryness & chapping caused by the elements. Enriched with organic cocoa & shea butter, as well as, skin nourishing oils like grapeseed, coconut and candelilla wax to help prevent dry, cracked and chapped lips.

Candelilla wax is a vegan wax derived from the wild growing herbacious plant family Euphorbica Antisyphilitica. The wax has a beautiful glossy finish when paired with skin enriching oils and acts like a barrier by sealing in moisture to protect the lips from drying out.  

Three shades in the range are tinted to suit all skin tones. Perfect to use alone or as an alternative to lipstick. Can also be used like a lip primer before applying a natural lipstick by nourishing & softening any dryness or chapping for a smooth lipstick application.

Black Chicken – Axilla Deodorant Paste

Hi I’m Chey Birch, Founder of Black Chicken Remedies. It was the year 2000 and I was living in Bondi Sydney. For years I suffered from irritated skin and sinus issues but nothing I used healed my symptoms. After seeing a naturopath for some much needed advice she suggested I take a good look at my life and the toxins I was unknowingly consuming. So, I did exactly that. It wasn’t until I looked at my soaps, cleansers and scrubs was I truly horrified. The ingredients in these products were synthetic and borderline toxic – and yet here I was lathering myself with these chemicals everyday. In hindsight it seems obvious my skin was trying to tell me something.

On my dining room table, in a little bowl with a black chicken painted on it, I began blending essential oils and therapeutic botanical extracts to create a natural remedy for my condition. I had no idea at the time that what I was creating would benefit thousands of people; I was just hoping to help myself.

I didn’t spare anything when creating this nourishing blend. I used the highest quality natural and organic ingredients I could find and kept my product as an oil – that way I didn’t need to add any preservatives or binding agents. After a while my symptoms disappeared and friends began asking if I could bring ‘the black chicken’ to their homes.

That little bowl with a chicken painted on it started my skin care company Black Chicken Remedies. We’re now a global brand selling remedial products to people all over the world and helping people reconnect with their bodies.

Our approach is informed by ancient remedies that have been used for thousands of years by medicine men and women of different cultures. Within each of our products are generations of therapeutic knowledge. We don’t make skincare with the intention to look, smell or feel good; it’s created to make a difference on a physical, mental and emotional level.

After all, that’s what a true remedy does.

We tend to forget about our armpits and the hard work they do. These patches of skin, home to hundreds of sweat glands help control our body temperate and expel toxins through perspiration. So, the least we can do is give them a helping hand (or finger) and rub some natural Axilla Deodorant Paste into them.

Our unique blend of natural and organic ingredients target and effectively neutralise odour without harmful chemicals or sweat blockers. This means your body can continue to do what it does naturally without smelling funky.

Our awesome deodorant paste:

• Contains only natural and certified organic ingredients
• Does not contain harmful Aluminium Salts or compounds
• Is completely invisible upon application
• Does not contain synthetic fragrances
• Contains pure essential oils and botanical extracts
• Does not contain alcohol, Parabens, Propylene Glycol, Triclosans or other harmful chemicals
• Vegan friendly and not tested on animals
• Made with love in Australia

No roll-ons or sprays here – just finger friendly fun.
Applying our deodorant paste is just like moisturising your armpits. Grab a pea sized amount with your finger and gently rub it into your armpits until it warms and dissolves. Simple!

Extra bits: Keep your Axilla in a warm spot like your bedroom or makeup bag to prevent it from firming up during those cooler months.
We suggest not putting Axilla Deodorant Paste™ on right after shaving. Because shaving creates hundreds of tiny cuts to your skin your armpits become highly sensitive – especially to Sodium Bicarbonate, which we use to neutralise odour. So if you can, wait a day or shave at night so your little pits have time to heal.
