Description What has been two and a half years in the making has finally come to fruition. Our unscented, essential oil, baking soda, arrowroot powder free deodorant is finally here! I cannot tell you what a labor of love, and well what a LABOR this has been. As a breast cancer survivor, deodorant is the MOST important product to me in regards to protecting myself going forward. I do not want aluminum in my life, let alone in my armpits. Now, for those of you new to natural deodorant. You will still sweat, which is a good thing and I promise you’ll get used to it, particularly when you DON’T SMELL! Magnesium is the base of this formula and the to its success. We played with the base % for over a year to get it just right, and I am so happy with how this stick turned out. Magnesium is so important for women and it is more easily absorbed through the skin than taken orally. It aids in alleviating migraines, muscle aches, menstrual issues, ph balancing (hence the odor fighting miracle) and hormone balance. Size: We have also maximized the bottle by filling it complete (many brands only half fill) at 3.2oz it is one of the largest sticks you will find and will last twice as long. How to Use Roll on after your shower and any time you need a boost. Ingredients Magnesium Hydroxide, cocos nucifera (coconut) Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower Seed) OIl, Candelilla Cera (Candelilla Wax), Tapioca Starch, Cera Carnauba (Carnuba) Wax, Tochopheryl Acetate, Glyceryl Captylate Brand Bio Violets Are Blue was created because of a personal need for skincare that is natural and safe for the body as well as the environment. Born in Seattle, Cynthia first landed in New York City determined to to find her way as an actress, after completing a major in theater at the University of Oregon. She worked on Broadway for 10yrs before checking out the real estate scene and quickly became one of the top brokers in the city. After receiving a breast cancer diagnosis in 2011, Cynthia’s successful career in the cutthroat world of New York City real estate came to a skidding halt. While undergoing treatment, one of her first actions was to toss out all beauty products containing unsafe chemicals and synthetic fragrances, leaving her medicine cabinet bare. She was shocked by the mislabeling of many skincare and beauty products that were classified as “natural” while containing parabens, sulfates, and other chemicals known known to work as endocrine disruptors linked to cancer and reproductive concerns. She dove into the world of natural skincare, learning everything she could about essential oils, and other natural ingredients that work effectively to nourish, cleanse, and hydrate without causing harm. Cynthia learned that there are key botanicals and herbs that can alleviate and treat problems for any skin type or age. She drew upon this, along with her desire to give back, and established Violets Are Blue in 2015. She used her knowledge and passion for naturally-derived skincare ingredients to formulate a consciously-produced line of products, each one a true labor of love. In addition to developing new products for the Signature and Beloved lines, Cynthia provides patients at the Mt. Sinai Dubin Breast Center in NYC with a gifted package of Beloved products upon their first day of chemotherapy. She is also proud to have created a company that supports women helping women, with 10% of the purchase price of all products going toward skincare donations for cancer patients. Since its inception, Violets Are Blue has been awarded Best In Show by the Indie Beauty Expo, Best Brand with a mission by Sophie Uliano’s Gorgeously Green Beauty Awards and Cynthia has been featured in top magazines such as Women’s Day, Self, Organic Spa and Health Magazine, just to name a few. Violets Are Blue operates under the philosophy that skincare does not have to be complicated; in fact, keeping it simple is best.
