An Experience That Led to an Invention: nakd. deodorant’s Story

Have you ever wondered how a product came to be? What was going through a person's mind when they came up with a brand-new idea? Was it pure luck? Was it a strike of inspiration? Truth is every product comes to be in a different way and their process of creation is unique to the inspiration behind it. If we could take a look at the story behind every product we own, we would be in awe of the creativeness behind each of them. nakd. deodorant has a very unique story.

Vasarii Principles

Josh Spilewski is a passionate world-traveler and a creative entrepreneur. He believes it is important to stay true to one's nature while respectfully harnessing and utilizing nature's resources. When he decided to start his own company, he knew he had to stand by his core values and do right by what he believed in. That is how he founded Vasarii.

Because Spilewski cares about the environment and his customers, Vasarii was born with quality and health in mind. Every product is created with natural ingredients through an eco-friendly process. He says, "we are building a brand that makes people feel they can trust the products they are buying are cruelty-free, all natural, and environmentally friendly."

For that reason, every Vasarii product is created based on five particularly important principles:

  1. Earth-Friendly: every product is organically created to be good for your skin and the environment.
  2. No Irritation: their products cause no irritation thanks to the fact that they do not include harmful chemicals, artificial colors, or other byproducts.
  3. Natural Fragrance: as organic products, they contain a natural, pleasant smell scented with oils.
  4. Overall Effectiveness: the products stick to the basic natural and organic skin remedies for every customer to enjoy their benefits.
  5. Originality: they utilize the original composition of plants extracts to maximize their utility.

Vasarii's nakd. deodorant

One of Vasarii's main beauty products is nakd. deodorant made from 100% natural mineral salts. These mineral salts from Thailand prevent the growth of bacteria, leaving you scent-free and feeling fresh. nakd. deodorant is fragrance-free, color-free, stain-free, and will not block the pores on your skin. But how did Josh Spilewski come up with this idea?

As an avid traveler, Spilewski was living in Singapore and doing laundry when he noticed the yellow stains under his armpits on his shirts. No matter how he washed his shirts, he could not remove the stains. His roommate said she had dealt with that in the past, and it was due to antiperspirant deodorants. She presented him with a solution: a crystalized cube of mineral salts from Thailand.

Josh tried this product for a month and knew it would be a game-changer. But he did not want to be among the few people to benefit from this, he wanted to share it with the world. So, he traveled to Thailand to meet with manufacturers, and nakd. deodorant was born.

Now Vasarii offers a natural deodorant that is effective for up to 24 hours, dries instantly, and leaves no white residue. It is a hypoallergenic deodorant with no alcohol, emulsifiers, or aluminum chloralhydrate. This product is good for your skin, your shirts, and the environment.


A Relatable Beginning

When we picture the beginning of a brand or the creation of a product, more often than not, we imagine a fancy, movie-like story. Vasarii's nakd. deodorant is proof the most useful ideas are born in ordinary moments. A common house chore led Spilewski to create a product that will benefit your skin while also taking care of the environment.

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

1221
Is God Reckless?


First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.
