Is Freshstick a good deodorant for kids?

Yes, Freshstick is an excellent natural deodorant for kids. It's an environmentally friendly deodorant without baking soda, formulated carefully for those with sensitive skin, without any artificial colors or scents.

What's the difference between Bedrock Balm and Porefector?

Bedrock Balm is a barrier cream for face, hands and body. It can be used as a protection cream, barrier ointment for baby, skin barrier cream for eczema, moisture barrier for skin, and is the best cream to restore skin barrier. Porefector is a natural pore minimizer with much more zinc to minimize pores, clarify and calm blemishes, help red pores on face, tone red oily skin, soothe red acne marks on cheeks. This cream for pores is also helpful for chronic ingrown hairs.

Where are Bedrock products made?

Products are made in our USA manufacturing facility, and then sent to Seattle, WA where we package them up with love to our customers. Our USA manufacturing lab has a seven-day quality assurance process to verify consistency in color, viscosity, scent, and pH. We require a certificate of analysis and a safety data sheet on every ingredient. Our USDA certified organic ingredients are quarantined in a specific warehouse area to maintain purity.

Customer question: I want to purchase both Porefector and Freshstick deodorant. I'm wondering is it safe to use both at the same time? Or is there such a thing as too much Zinc? Haha. Thanks!

We can’t find any evidence that it would be too much – especially when you think about people covering their whole body with zinc oxide sunscreen: https://www.the-dermatologist.com/news/sunscreen-zinc-oxide-safe

Definitely check with your doctor if you have any concerns. We wear Freshstick, have Porefector working on a blemish, and have Bedrock Balm working on something else. They are spot corrector products, so just put them where you need them.

What makes Bedrock protection cream different than other zinc products out there?

Check the ingredients! Generic zinc products can include methylparaben, cetostearyl alcohol, cetomacrogol 1000, liquid paraffin, mineral oil, white wax or vaseline petrolatum, titanium dioxide, steareth-20, colloidal sulfur, cetyl alcohol, imidazolidinyl urea,  or propylparaben. We include none of those. We also always list the zinc oxide percentage on every product.

Our zinc based barrier cream is plant-based, cruelty-free, made with non-nano zinc oxide, made in the USA and brimming with nourishing essential oils.
