Eco-friendly uses for Castile Soap

Castile Soap was named after its birthplace, a region in Spain called “Castile”, where it was first made from olive oil.  While it can be made from different plant oils, ours is made from Canadian Organic Cold Pressed Sunflower Oil.  This versatile and 100% natural soap can be used as a body wash on all skin types and for so many other hidden uses we couldn’t help but share!

We love the fact that just one bottle of Castile Soap can replace so many bottles of cleaning and personal care products found in most households.  Making the switch to a natural and safe cleaning solution is a great decision for yourself and for your family’s health, but it’s also a simple step towards a healthier planet.

Castile Soap is concentrated, so just a little bit goes a very long way.  You’ll only need a small amount to tackle grease and dirt throughout your home.  It’s also septic-safe and biodegradable and will not promote the growth of toxic blue-green algae in our lakes and rivers like synthetic detergents do.

Unlike most cleaning products, Castile Soap is very gentle and non-abrasive, which means it can safely be used on furniture, on anyone’s skin, and even on your pets!

Everything you need to know about our NaturaDri technology.

Green Beaver is proud to offer THE FIRST and only aluminum-free antiperspirants available on the market- a natural alternative created from our own technology called NaturaDri. You might have some questions regarding this topic and that’s why we’re here to give you some information in this article. We’ll explain everything you need to know!

In the cosmetics industry, it’s not surprising to find numerous deodorants and antiperspirants on the market that contain aluminum salts. Their role is to reduce the production of sweat and to act effectively against humidity by blocking the pores of the skin. However, aluminum salts, for many years now, have been the subject of extensive criticism and seem to represent a real danger to  consumers’ health. According to various studies conducted on the subject, it is strongly recommended to not use products containing aluminum and even less on damaged skin. 

It was therefore essential for us to offer a natural antiperspirant alternative, free of potentially harmful ingredients, and thus meet the demands of our community. After several years of research and development, Green Beaver developed a brand-new technology: NaturaDri. 

A unique formulation of jojoba flower wax esters, mimosa wax esters and other plant extracts, NaturaDri aims to form a natural protective barrier to keep your underarms dry. And instead of using aluminum that penetrates the sweat pores, we have created a compound that deposits a film on the surface of the skin that will prevent excessive sweating, all naturally.  

 

“Natura = Natural, Dri = Dry. NaturaDri = Stay dry, naturally.”

 

Thanks to this technology, the next generation of antiperspirants were also born. Now you can keep a fresh feeling all day long without a trace of aluminum in its composition. It combines natural organic ingredients that help soothe the skin, even after you shave. Dermatologist tested, our antiperspirant has been shown to be non-irritating and hypoallergenic. In addition, they are clinically proven to provide 24-hour protection while fighting moisture. It ensures that your underarms are not left irritated!

Now you know everything there is to know about our NaturaDri technology, an effective solution to prevent perspiration naturally. For fresh underarms, choose from our wide range of 100% natural aluminum-free antiperspirants. 

Deodorant or Antiperspirant: Which one to choose?

Smelling fresh all day long? Yes, it is possible! Green Beaver is proud to offer you a complete range of natural deodorants and antiperspirants. Healthy and safe, they are the solution to any odor problems. Both sharing many similarities, it can be difficult to choose between one or the other. Green Beaver is here to answer all your questions. Find out more to ensure you make the right decision and find the right product for your needs. 

The difference between an antiperspirant and a deodorant? 

Made with natural ingredients, our antiperspirants do not contain aluminum or potentially harmful ingredients such as parabens and artificial fragrances commonly found in conventional antiperspirants. It’s formulated to provide long-lasting protection by creating a natural barrier over the pores for soft, healthy underarms. 

Natural deodorants, on the other hand, do not fight against sweat. They fight against the bacteria who is responsible for unpleasant odours. Thus, thanks to their formulation, they glide gently over your skin to mask all traces of unwanted odours and eliminate bacteria. Your underarms will be kept clean and fresh without any harmful ingredients that will strip your skin. 

So, which one should you choose…a deodorant or an antiperspirant?

As you can see, both accompany the natural process of perspiration by limiting odours. On the other hand,  deodorant only neutralizes the development of the bad smell while the antiperspirant prevents it. For those who wish to avoid excessive sweating, our antiperspirants are the right products for you. They are for people who want a healthy solution to stay dry all day long. If you are comfortable with a little feeling of wetness, our natural deodorants are formulated to meet the needs of people who prefer an instant freshness effect. 

In summary, there are many factors that come into play when making your final decision. Whatever your choice, Green Beaver guarantees natural products that you can use safely while respecting your body and the environment!
