“SÁF ORGANICS Natural Detox & Deodorant smells sweetly and deliciously of peppermint and tea tree. It isn’t an overpowering fragrance and it doesn’t cloud you all day as you wear it, but it is subtle and so pleasant, it makes applying it a nice almost moreish experience. This is also the only natural deodorant paste I’ve used that comes in a stick and doesn’t require you to get the paste on your fingers. As a busy mum, I found that I would keep coming back to this product again and again due to convenience, though I was aware that the convenience did mean packaging that wasn’t as environmentally friendly as others.
This deodorant paste has a slightly grainy texture which you notice when applying, but I didn’t notice any residue on my clothes when I wore it. The most important thing about this deodorant however is that it really works. I used it in sweaty, high stress, hot day and exercise situations and it holds. I totally trust the effectiveness of this product and it works like a dream.
A beautiful smelling, highly effective, organic, non-toxic deodorant choice.”
“The SAF natural detox deodorant is easy to use as it is in a stick applicator even though it is quite a dense product. I found that less is best as over application can be too thick for your skin. Worked well throughout the day. Also has a detox element. I have sensitive skin so the detox and deodorant combo wasn’t for me. I had my Mum try it too and she liked it / found it worked well with no issues.

“This deodorant ticks all the boxes for me. It has a lovely subtle scent and is easy to put on. It doesn’t leave any pasty residue. It keeps me dry and smelling fresh and I only need to apply it once in the morning and once at night. I love that it contains detoxifying ingredients and I really did feel fresher and cleaner throughout the week I was trialling it. My only concern here is the packaging, which is plastic and unrecyclable.”
“This is one of my favourites for the Natural deodorant finalists for the Australian Non-Toxic Awards 2019. It is super easy to apply in a twist canister, no fingers required simply roll onto the skin. The product is like a balm, it is soft & only a small amount is required. The product would last several months applied daily, it only needs to be applied once, you would probably apply it again after exercise, but I didn’t find that I needed to re-apply it as it lasted all day with no unwanted odours. This product was the one I reached for most when in a hurry as it’s so easy to use! It has a delicate aroma that is sweetly scented with 100%Essential Oils. It is a unisex fragrance. Highly recommended!”
“Love that it comes in a stick form however felt a little grainy. Smells beautiful and lasted all day. I love that it both a detox and deodorant.”
