So would anyone actually buy this? (ANYONE live in WA state?)

Posted by   + Show Post

So im curious. I have now added Deodorants to my homemade collection of things I sell. Now i got all the supplies I needed to make them and then broke down what it would cost to sell them. They are 2oz bottles and are made of ALL Natural. They contain NO Aluminum which is very bad for your skin as well as the earth. It is great because it also has a melting point of 120 degrees! So it wont melt in the heat. What im wondering is would you pay a little more for a product like this? I would have to sell it at $6 to double what it cost to make but im going to sell for $5. Thoughts?


So if I were to make up samples would anyone try them if they came in a lip balm container LOL i have a million of them and would offer samples in that type of size and bottle. Or is that to weird?


Update!

Ok so made a 2nd batch and made it in Cucumber Melon scent. Smells Amazing! I have heard from others that no matter how much scent they add it soaks it up and smells of nothing so figured id try it and it worked! So i could make this in anything from cotton candy to ameretto! 


Does anyone here that is interested in this deodorant live in WA state? I went and spent over an hour in the hot sun cleaning up the tree that fell in the storm so hot and sweaty then went for 2 hours at my moms(about 80 degrees outside) and she was hardcore cleaning and had a fire going in her house to get all the trash gone. i helped her clean for 2 hours dumping sweat and i still smell like cucumer melon! I NEED people to try this product! I cant afford shipping right now so i want to offer this to anyone in WA state? so i can get a few reviews. I dont have friends in real life and Even if i did my fans would think i made them say nice things! which i would never do!

 I would try it first and if it worked, I would pay 6 for it.

What do you mean how long will it last? As in shelf life? Or using it? shelf life about 2 months but I assume if you use it every day it would last 2-3 weeks?

Nope, not when the recipes are all over the internet and generally people go this route to save money and not necessarily the planet.

maybe if the packaging had a nice enticing label, we are all victims of commercialism, that fact u can take to the bank.

1 mom liked this

These ones smell of tea tree oil but I have not tried adding a scent to them. If it worked which i dont see why not then yes I have loads of scents to choose from :)

Is it scented, would it be ok for sensitive skin? I'm really picky because of my psoriasis, it can break out with the wrong deodorant.

Osha, the fda, msds data sheets, health and human services...there is a certain amount of trust behind a brand recognition.

Can I ask why if you new me? whats the difference from me to a store? Curious not bashing :)

Quoting abbymomof1:

Honestly, only if I personally knew you.

I hope everything works out for you though :)

I have not tried scenting it as of yet but I dont see why it could not be. These ones Ive added Tea tree oil too so they smell of that. I can get you an Ingredient list if you would like :) I dont know anything about Psoriasis so im not sure if this will work.
