Why I Started Live Fresh
A few years ago, my sister called me and told me I HAD to switch to aluminum-free deodorant! She was worried we’d all get breast cancer. I knew she was over reacting, but I started doing some research on what’s in deodorant and decided that I’d rather be aluminum free too.
Then I started the search for a natural deodorant that actually worked. I had no idea it would be so difficult to find something I really liked at an affordable price. So in the fall of 2014, I started the process of figuring out how to make my own. How hard could it be?
Well, I went through a dozen recipes and jar after jar of coconut oil before I found a combination that I felt had the correct consistency and kept me fresh. Now the test was to have other people try it. I was so nervous when I gave out samples to friends and family. I was expecting everyone to say it was ok but not any better than what they purchased at the store.
One by one, all my friends and family members came back for more. The deodorant was keeping them smelling fresh all day. The true test was when my husband decided to try it. He came home from a day of work smelling like … nothing! He has been using it ever since.
After deodorant I decided to try other products, which led to the creation of “Live Fresh” in April of 2015. I try to use the least amount of ingredients in all my products, and it’s truly amazing to use natural products that work! I am still working on recipes for new products and will continue to increase my inventory.
