You know how it goes when you stumble upon something life-changing. Your first inclination is to share it with those you love. And when it comes to going natural, lots of people are eager to encourage their dear ones to join them in making positive choices for their long-term health.
So maybe you’ve loved Schmidt’s Naturals for a while, and you're all about the clean, healthy results you get with our products. You want to let people know, but... aren’t quite sure how to tell your friends about making the switch. Allow us to give you a hand. Here's a handy set of bullet points to help drive the conversation:
- Empathy - You want to be healthy, but you also understand that others might not share your motivations. You have to ask yourself: "Why?" Do they need a little more info on why going natural is a healthy decision? How about breaking down the process into simple, realistic goals? Going natural should feel achievable, not impossible.
- Ingredients - Remind your friends that natural deodorant doesn’t include controversial ingredients like aluminum or phthalates, chemicals that have been said to have adverse health effects.Encourage alternatives like Schmidt's--we use plant-based powders, mineral-derived ingredients, and oils to aid in absorbing wetness and neutralizing odors.
- Fragrances - Natural products should be exciting, and smell as amazing, if not better, than the conventional alternatives on the market. Unlike a lot of other products, Schmidt’s uses only natural fragrances derived from plant sources to give our deodorants a range of fresh, inviting scents. Appeal to people's sense of smell with adventurous and accessible scents like Bergamot + Lime or Ylang-Ylang + Calendula.
- Cruelty-free - If you can believe it, American cosmetic companies are still allowed to test their products on live animals. Cut it out, already. Make the switch to brands that are certified vegan and cruelty-free, like Schmidt’s.
We hope that these suggestions on how to talk to friends and family about going natural are helpful, and that they join you on your journey ASAP! We’re sure you have some great tips and topics of your own. If so, let us know! We’d love to hear your ideas.
