There are a number of different reasons why you’ll want to consider switching to a natural deodorant. The first, and possible the most obvious, is the elimination of plastic from their packaging.
All of the natural deodorants we sell are 100% plastic free. If everyone was to move towards a plastic free deodorant, we could eliminate millions of unnecessary bits of plastic every year from circulation.
At the same time, we don’t want lots of harsh chemicals in our deodorant. We want a product that’s kind to both our underarms as well as the environment. With a natural deodorant, we have gentle ingredients that protect us from sweat and odour so we can go about our day with confidence.
I’ll take my deodorant without the aluminium as well, please. Aluminium salts are used to prevent sweating by blocking your pores under your arms. This prevents the natural process of sweating – a way for our body to remove excess salt and toxins. As a consequence, we build up bad bacteria under our arms which are in fact the main cause of body odour.
Recent studies also show that aluminium is no good for our health, and carries its own set of risks. One being is it can increase the risk of Alzheimer’s later in life by up to 60%. Natural deodorants do not contain any aluminium and work by neutralising any potential odours that might arise. Not only that but by allowing your underarms to sweat, good bacteria can thrive which naturally has no odour.
By switching to a natural deodorant, you are actually using ingredients that are good for you and your underarms. So what if there is a little bit of moisture down there – this is a natural bodily process and we could all do with going back to natures way!
