I'd honestly never thought I'd be making this or using this product. I spend most days working in the sun on our farm and I didn't think it would be possible to use an all natural deodorant in TEXAS :D :P I worked hard trying some different recipes and finally tweaking this product to the point that I feel great about putting the Lone Star Slick name on it!
Simple organic and all natural ingredients sourced from only the best manufacturers. Natural oils and butters mixed with high grade essential oils this is a simple yet hard working deodorant.
Container is oversized. This product is handmade and poured right into the containers then oils are added so deodorant will not be to top of container but be rest assured you are receiving the correct amount.
Underarm odor is stinks (pun intended), but the toxins found in common deodorants is a heck of a lot scarier! There are lots of great reasons to use a "natural" deodorant; like if you have sensitive skin, have sworn off fake and synthetic chemicals, or like the idea of natural, aluminum-free deodorant for excessive sweating. Essential oils can reduce sweating and smelly armpits so why rely on the chemicals found in store bought deodorants.
This is a supersize container compared to that most deodorants on the market are in the 2 ounce range and ours is a whopping 4 ounces. Most natural deodorants on the market are between $7-$10 for a 2 ounce container and some still have "questionable ingredients".
You will only need about a pea sized little scoop on your finger and rub it into your armpits like you would lotion. You can apply once a day or more if you feel you need it but I honestly do it once. Remember the goal here is to not have any odor and not smell like a perfume factory. The scents or oils used to make the item do have a scent but it is not like a bar of say "old spice" :D
WHY GO ALUMINUM FREE?
Studies suggest that the use of aluminum-based antiperspirants/deodorants may be linked to breast cancer and other medical issues. Aluminum plugs the body's sweat glands and prevents sweating, but in the process, it can also be absorbed transdermally. There are lots of other concerns out there regarding aluminum in deodorant but if you are here looking at this product you've probably read up on the internet already about the issues.
THINGS COMMONLY FOUND IN REGULAR DEODORANTS:
Aluminum – Evidence links aluminum to cancer and Alzheimer’s Disease
Phthalates– Endocrine disrupters are often found in plastic that can cause hormone imbalance and even infertility, especially in men
Propylene glycol– Common name: antifreeze. It is a debated additive in personal care products but the Environmental Working Group reports that it carries a moderate risk of immunotoxicity and allergies
Formaldehyde- A known carcinogen… guess it kills the naughty germs though :D :P
Parabens- A hormone disruptor and parabens have been found in biopsied tissue with breast cancer
Antibacterial Substances- They are endocrine disruptors and can negatively affect the immune system
ORIGINAL (Not Scented) - The ingredients used to make this item do have a scent but it's not added to the recipe to be a "perfume or cologne". I find personally that I mostly smell a slight scent of tea tree and lavender even though other essential oils are used.
We are offering this in additional "scented" recipes that are made for their unique properties that may benefit folks wanting something more scented.
CITRUS ZING! - It's no secret that citrus smells are great because they are unisex so they are great for everyone but did you know that citrus oils are great at lowering the PH of your armpits helping to keep the body odor away??? Our Citrus Oil Blend is a unique take and includes Grapefruit, Lemongrass, Peppermint and Frankincense for a truly unique and energizing blend.
SOUL OF THE WOODS - Like a breath of fresh, mountain air, this Essential Oil blend is incredibly uplifting and rejuvenating. Made with Cedarwood, Siberian Fir Needle, Orange, Clove and others make this the perfect… Earthy, Green, Spice, Woodsy scent!

Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. I'm not responsible for delays due to customs.
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
We can not accept returns on items like combs and brushes etc... I could never in good faith accept a used comb back and resell it nor can we take your word for it that you didn't brush with it :P. Just the thought of it makes me cringe typing this :P If you ordered something that wound up not being perfect for you then do get in touch and we can chat about giving you a discount code to try another item. BUT under no circumstance can I even think about taking back those kinds of items. We love our customers and always use the highest standards when it comes to health and safety.
Our typical packaging consists of brand new heavyweight boxes and new bubble wrap... BUT .... we hate waste here whether it's horn chunks, wood pieces or even packaging items we get ourselves. SOOOOO I always keep a big box full of brown recycled paper, used bubble wrap, air pillows and anything else I can reuse. We don't normally ship with it UNLESS someone asks so PLEASE PLEASE just add a note with your order if you would like Green packaging.
This seems to be the number one thing I've had emails about recently. All animals are treated with respect and dignity. When possible the material is sourced right on our farm but when needed we buy from other suppliers. It goes without saying that our GOAT and HORSE hair brushes are from "no kill" animals. Our boar hair is sourced in Texas from several places and is collected from wild boar who are hunted and processed for meat. There is no cruelty involved and all boars are dispersed as humanely as possible. Hair collection is only done when animal is processed after death.
Our animal hair is sourced right here in Texas. All our wood is sourced right here as well but there are a couple for obvious reasons like they don't grow in Texas that are sourced elsewhere. Same with the horns
We love what we make and our handmade items take up most of our free time these days. We treat each one like it's our artistic interpretation and as a piece of art. We no longer accept custom or personalized orders as what little free time goes into creating more product for our shop. Thank you for understanding.
Where applicable we will give an idea of the ingredients in the product. We do this for the love and all items are as advertised so if we say something is "glycol free" or "soy free" etc... it is. We love these products and we love you (our customers) so rest assured that our products are 100% as advertised. BUT, if you have a specific allergy please just email us and we can tell you if it's safe.
We are always happy to work with store owners, barber shops, online resellers and anyone who wants to sell Dixie Cowboy Products. Just send us a message and we can work on a custom wholesale order just for you. We are not currently wholesaling our handmade combs and brushes, it is just impossible to mass produce these at this time. Some minimums apply when placing items for resale.

I've been using this product for a few days now and it has completely surpassed my expectations. It smells great (reminds me of orange flavored PEZ candy) but it isn't obnoxious and overbearing like all the big brand deodorants I've used. Haven't had to reapply at all. Well packaged and shipped fast.
