Fitness trainer creates formula for deodorant
With so many deodorants and antiperspirants on the market these days it’s tough to know which direction to turn so why not turn to Brooklyn?
That's where fitness trainer turned entrepreneur Kevin Steinmuller created his own formula to eliminate the funk, and he calls it Funkless.
“Anything you put on your skin can get absorbed. So if you’re putting like aluminum and hevay metals onto your skin, you know, bad things can happen,” Steinmuller said.
We chased this to his apartment/"cook" room and were greeted by a gentleman clad in full "Breaking Bad" attire that he explained was just a precaution – it’s not that serious.
Without revealing all of his secrets, the process involves wet and dry ingredients, including shea butter, coconut oil, and baking soda.
Unlike most deodorants that can be harsh on your skin it's quite gentle, Steinmuller said. And that's just the beginning of the differences between Kevin's handmade odor blocker and the commercial stuff.
The scents are gender neutral, can be worn by men or women, they're not overpowering or perfumey.
The deodorant comes in a little jar, which is only $10 and lasts about 2 months, and you just apply a dime size amount with your finger.
It doesn't leave stains on clothing because they're all natural and chemical free, dye free, gluten free, soy free, corn free.
