I have become a HUGE fan of the Vi Tae line and this is only the 2nd time I`ve used their product line! Yes, they`re that
good! I`m all about healthier living and using natural and safe products in my everyday life, but those products have to work. Too many "natural" products are made, but not all of them work. In fact, I find very few of "natural" or claims to be natural products work. I mean I`m all for better living, but it has to also get the job done for whatever the product intentions are. Vi Tae sent me some products to help me relax, smell good, and are functional. They sent me the Stress Reduction, Relaxation & Soothing Aromatherapy Dead Sea Bath Salts
and Deodorant Spray, All Natural Hypoallergenic
to try out.
For the Deodorant Spray the ingredients are as follows: purified water, laminaria digitata extract, PEG-16 macadamia glycerides, PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil, ammonium alum(mineral salt crystals), lavandula hybrida (lavender) oil, pogostemon cablin (patchouli) oil, salvia lavandulaefolia (Spanish sage) oil, melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree) leaf oil, melaleuca leucadendron cajeput oil, citrus medica limonum (lemon) peel oil, pinus sylvestris (pine) needle oil, & isopropyl alcohol. SPECIAL NOTE: This product contains `Ammonium Alum` also called `Ammonium Aluminum Sulfate` - Contrary to propaganda and misinformation that is circulating among the uninformed on the internet, Aluminum Alum is very, very different than Aluminum Chlorohydrate or Aluminum Zirconium or Aluminum Chloride. Ammonium Alum is comprised of naturally occurring salt crystals that form in the mineral Tschermigite. It has never had any toxicity registered for humans or animals, and is actually found everywhere in nature. Humans ingest between 20-60 milligrams of Alum a day in the air we breathe, the foods we eat, and the water we drink. In its natural form, it is one of the most abundant elements on the planet and one of the basic building blocks of our surroundings. It makes up about 8% of the Earth`s crust, and can be found in soil and clay. It has been part of the environment longer than humans have, and is labeled as non-toxic. Ammonium Alum is a large molecule (500+ Daltons [Dalton is a measure of molecular weight]) - too large to cross the skin barrier and thus cannot be absorbed by the body. Unlike Ammonium Alum, the processed Aluminums of Aluminum Cholorohydrate and Aluminum Zirconium have molecules small enough (200-300 Daltons) to actually penetrate the skin and end up in the bloodstream. Vi-Tae 100% Confident Deodorant Spray DOES NOT contain these smaller, processed aluminum molecules.
I have been looking for a deodorant that is all natural, aluminum and paraben free that actually does what it claims to do - well, I have finally found it! At first, I was a bit skeptical because I have tried SO MANY, but I was very pleasantly surprised to find that it actually works! I mean it`s natural and a spray - two things that generally never work from my experience. There are TONS of terrible chemicals in ordinary store bought deodorant/antiperspirant products - quite frankly, they are pretty scary and are being linked to breast cancer and several other diseases. So I am really thrilled to have found this wonderful product. I live in the South so it`s a very hot and humid climate so I really rely on my deodorant working. I put on the deodorant in the morning (2 sprays under each arm) and it lasted ALL day. It stayed smelling great all day! Literally, I kept sniffing trying to figure out what smelt good because I kept forgetting I had used a spray deodorant. Its also great that it has essential oils that have been very moisturizing for my skin. I am definitely sold on this, it is totally worth it! Very impressed with this spray!!
For the "Take it Easy" bath salts the ingredients are as follows: dead sea salts, lavandula angustifolia (lavender) oil, citrus aurantium (petitgrain bigarade) leaf oil, salvia officinalis (sage) oil, artemesia lanyana oil, ormenis mixta (chamomile) oil. This Take It Easy product went beyond my expectations! After a long and stressful day, I enjoy soaking in the tub. So, of course, I add in the "take it easy" bath salts. I allowed myself 15-20 minutes to relax in the tub along with some additional bubble bath. I was extremely relaxed. I finally had a chance to unwind. Not to mention I thought the scent helped with the relaxing as well. The container has 16-ounces and recommends about 2 ounces per bathing which is only eight baths of using this product. I did notice that unlike typical bath salts, these salts had white flakes sort of floating around the tub. Not all the materials had completely dissolved. I`m not sure if this is normal or due to the fact we have hard water or what, but it wasn`t a big deal to me. I`ve tried NUMEROUS bath salt soaks that only provide about half of the pain relief as "Take It Easy". It is simply wonderful! At the end of a tough day, it is a small indulgence. And, it may not be life altering, but I find it definitely improves both my skin and my well-being as well as bring back some of my sanity that my kids tend to take from me from time to time.
All in all, I`m once again pleased with the Vi Tae product line. They`re high quality and always work well for me. I highly recommend the Vi Tae products!
