What do you do when your kids’ armpits stink after an active day at school? Not normal deodorant from the shops. You have no idea what chemicals are in them. Deodorants and antiperspirants often have metal in their mixture.
Having something safe and all natural, like No Pong can come in handy. You see, the milky sweat from our hairy areas, like armpits and groins, is a party place for bacteria, and the bacteria causes the offending odour. Rather than mask the smell, block pores, or use synthetic anti-microbial chemicals, No Pong uses all natural ingredients to create a water-resistant environment that smelly armpit bacteria can’t survive.
No Pong was created by Melanie and Chris, a science, marketing and healthcare professional team. This very active couple was looking for something chemical-free to use for themselves.
“We couldn’t function without some kind of deodorant/antiperspirant, but the notion of unnecessarily putting harmful chemicals on sensitive areas of skin, right near extremely important organs like breasts, doesn’t really make any sense,” they said.
I tried No Pong on myself and my gradeschooler. Because she runs around so much, especially in this summer heat, her pits stink by the time she gets home. We applied No Pong in the morning before school and when she got home that day I was surprised. No pong indeed. I’ve been using it on her and myself for the last week and yes, no pong everyday. Even when my little girl is covered in sweat from head to toe, the pits stay un-pongy.
You can read the composition of the product yourself and see that they are all natural (and have a moment of ‘why didn’t I think of that?’). The ingredients are coconut oil, sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), corn starch and beeswax. All edible. Doesn’t mean you should eat it though, just sayin’.
Aside from being all natural and kid-friendly, I also love that the product is cheap (RRP $5.95) and lasts long as you only need a pea-sized amount. It is a good find for those in the same boat with their kids.
