Hello beautiful people!
Today I’m going to review the Sensitive Deodorant by Rimita Green. It’s Vegan Friendly, Fragrance-Free, Organic, Alcohol & Aluminum Free! Yay!
- Introduction & Ingredients
Rimita Green is a Finnish company from Pietarsaari (also known as Jakobstad), a town in the Ostrobothnia region. The firm is run by mother and son: it’s a family business that is conquering the hearts (and skins) of many natural cosmetics lovers in Finland.
Rimita Green has a wide choice of products: deodorants (RimitaDeo), hair products (RimitaPrima), different skin oils (RimitaGold and RimitaOats), and facial care with cleanser, toner, and cream (RimitaTriple).
Today I will focus on the Rimita Green Deodorants, in particular the Sensitive one. Moreover, the other product of this line has been chosen as the best organic deodorant in Finland! Congratulations!
Let’s have a look at the ingredients. From the website, we can quickly notice all the good stuff. As the company states, it contains organically grown aloe vera, lavender, rosemary, lemon, and chamomile. This product is also aluminum and soda-free. It’s NaTrue organic certified. It has no scent and clothes won’t be stained using this deodorant.
Here is the INCI list:
Aqua, Aloe barbadensis leaf extract**, Olea europea fruit extract**, Glycerin, Triethyl citrate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glycerin stearate citrate, Zinc, Ricinoleate, Polyglyceryl-3 caprylate, Oryza sativa starch, Chamomilla recutita extract, Calendula officinalis extract, Rosmarinus officinalis leaf extract**, Lavandula Angustifolia Flower Extract**, Citrus Limon peel extract*, Myrtus Communis leaf extract**, Xanthan gum, Sodium Benzoate, Benzyl Alcohol, Salicylic Acid, Sorbic Acid, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Algin, Citric Acid, Maltodextrin. *With Organic Ingredients **From Organic Farming
I chose this particular product because I wanted to try something natural (with deodorants particularly, I try a million). I always try to pick organic and natural products, if possible. I sweat A LOT, and the only ingredient that stops the sweat is Aluminum Chlorohydrate or other derivatives. But, I really like this formulation so here I am reviewing it. 💸
Especially in this product, you find calming chamomile, aloe vera, glycerin, and soothing ingredients like rosemary. Moreover, it has one of my Holy Grail ingredients, which is…💜 Salicylic Acid!💜 It’s at the bottom, but even a small quantity could make a big difference, or at least that was my wish when I bought the product. Salicylic Acid is well known for its anti-inflammatory properties, and it exfoliates the skin and pores (deeply).
The packaging is simple and it’s immediately visible, that it is a natural product. The deodorant costs €11,95 on Rimita Green’s website, and the price can vary depending on the retailer. I paid €10,90 for it, at Sokos Helsinki. It contains 50ml and it has 12 months of life after opening. Looking at the bottom, there is a “best before” date, which in my case is May 2022. Of course, when we talk about natural ingredients, it also means that they have a shorter shelf life (just like fruit or food at the supermarket), considering also the low amount of preservatives.
How to use it: It is advised to use the deodorant daily, after a shower or washing the armpits.
Special note: it is advised to let the product dry before wearing any clothing.
- My experience
Like probably everyone on this planet, my main concerns are odor and wet armpits (especially during summer). Said so, I will also try to use Glycolic Acid at some point, to see how it compares to deodorants and antiperspirants.
I usually use antiperspirants, because they help with the sweat as well. I just don’t like all the chemicals in them, and I hope that one day I will find the perfect natural product for me!
However, I really like this deodorant. It has a creamy texture, great ingredients, and the price point is good for a quality product. Especially for sensitive and allergic people, this deodorant is perfect. It has no perfume, yet it doesn’t make your armpits smell AT ALL!
Unfortunately, for me, this deodorant doesn’t stop nor limit the sweat. Still, I will finish this product and it will surely be the perfect alternative during the cold days of Finnish winter!
If you have sensitive skin, dislike products with alcohol, aluminum, perfume, and looking for a valid natural alternative, this is YOUR product!
My vote is 4 / 5 moons!
I will surely try more products from Rimita Green, I love the formulations and it’s always important to help small companies. This sweet family business surely has a bright future ahead!
