Switching over to a natural deodorant instead of your trusty aerosol or roll on might seem a bit daunting but when the benefits include it being better for the environment AND for you, what have you got to lose?
Natural deodorants don’t have aluminium in them like many commercial varieties. Aluminium is usually added to reduce the amount of perspiration you produce but the problem is that this clogs your pores and stops your body from detoxing through the process of sweating. Suppressing your bodily functions is never a good idea and whilst it might make you BO-less in the short term, in the long term you can cause even more problems. The idea is that a good deodorant will still allow you to sweat, without letting that sweat turn into a nasty smell.
All of the natural deodorants we stock come in plastic-free and eco friendly packaging. This means that you are not contributing to landfill with aerosols or plastic roll-ons. Instead, the packaging is biodegradable and/or recyclable meaning that your impact on the world is minimal.
Natural deodorants are actually good for your health! Not only do the use of wonderful, natural ingredients limit the number of skin issues that can arise but they also provide additional benefits. You won’t get blocked pores, irritation free armpits result in a closer shave, and you reduce the risk of yellow stains on any of your clothing. Many of the ingredients in our natural deodorants are antibacterial, anti-fungal, moisturising, and soothing as well!
Another great reason to make the change is because a good-quality natural deodorant will not include any added, synthetic fragrances. Instead of using artificial scents that can irritate your skin or allergies, they use essential oils such as lemongrass, peppermint, and lavender which are good for your mind and body, as well as your nose!
