Rustic Maka Pachy ~ Pure, Simple & Organic Deodorant. Less Is More!

*Disclosure- This was brought to you by AdvertiseWithBloggers.com and RusticMaka.com. I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review.  All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items. 


Getting in a good workout every day is important to me. Not only is it great for keeping the body in shape, it's a great stress reliever, does wonders for boosting the mood, and since I take my teenaged daughter with me to several fitness classes at our community center each week, it is a great way to bond with her too! I give each session my all, and most of the time that leaves me feeling and (a little tmi here!) smelling gross! I have been through almost every antiperspirant/deodorant they sell at the grocers, and I have yet to find one that leaves me feeling fresh and dry throughout my workouts. When I was offered the opportunity to try Rustic Maka Pachy Deodorants, which are formulated with only made-in-nature, organic and vegan ingredients, I was a bit skeptical, yet hopeful that it would finally give me the odor and wetness protection that I have been looking for.

Rustic Maka products are great for people who are seeking alternatives to traditional, chemically-filled health and beauty products. They formulate each of their personal care items with rich, plant-based oils, butters and powders, leaving out complicated formulas and harsh chemicals. All of Rustic Maka's products are prepared in small, carefully controlled batches, and packaged in BPA-free, environment-friendly recycled containers. So, not only are they good for the body, they are good for the planet too!

I have been using Rustic Maka Pachy deodorants for the past few weeks. I received Wild Meadows and Calming Fields scents. The Wild Meadows had a faint scent, a little like flowers and vanilla. The Calming Fields was stronger in scent, which was minty, like spearmint. When I first applied the deodorant, it did glide on wet, but completely dried after a minute or two. It does have a different consistency than traditional deodorants, feeling a little more gritty at first as you glide it on, but it blends nicely with a few swipes. What I really liked was that it didn't bead up and leave deodorant chunks in the creases of my underarms. While it didn't keep me 100% dry during my workouts, I did notice an improvement in overall dryness, and it did a fabulous job of keeping odor at bay!

My teen daughter sweats as much as I do during our workouts, and my pre-teen is just noticing the need to start using deodorant daily. I like Rustic Maka's commitment to offering quality products that are good for our bodies, so I feel good about letting my young girls use the products too!


Rustic Maka products are USA made and are never tested on animals. Believing less is more, their Pachy deodorants do not contain toxic chemicals, no parabens, no aluminum, no gluten, no corn, no soy, no GMO, no triclosen, and no propylene-glycol. There are 5 different scents to please any nose: Morning Breeze, Calming Fields, Naughty Butter, Sweet Lemonade and Wild Meadows. Each has a retail of $11.95 each and can be purchased right on the Rustic Maka website. While there, you can learn more about all of the organic products they have in their health and beauty line.

  2. I would like to try the Angels of Hope. I don't use much deoderant because I don't like all the additives. This would work great for me.
