Best baking soda in the western cape!

Using baking soda as an under arm deodorant, I'm always in search of a gentle and non abrasive baking soda. I've been struggling for months to find one that had a very fine powdery consistent texture and finally found one at Essentially Natural. My only regret is I ordered too small of a size because I was scared it was going to be like the rest of the baking sodas I've used in the western cape

This is a useful home ingredient to have on hand, so happy I can purchase in large quantities.
