Are Natural Deodorants Really Better for You?

Are Natural Deodorants Really Better for You?

We all know that conventional deodorants and antiperspirants are loaded with toxic chemicals. But did you know that these chemicals can actually be absorbed through your skin and into your bloodstream? Yikes!

So, why should you switch to a natural deodorant? 

Here are just a few benefits: 
  1. You'll avoid the harmful chemicals found in conventional deodorants. Aluminium-based antiperspirants have been linked to breast cancer and other health problems, so why take the risk? Natural deodorants don’t contain aluminium or other harmful chemicals.
  2. Natural deodorants actually allow your body to sweat and release toxins. Conventional deodorants block sweat glands preventing this natural process.
  3. Sweating is actually good for you! It helps regulate body temperature and removes toxins from the body.  Natural deodorants may not prevent you from sweating, but they will neutralize body odour-causing bacteria. So you can feel fresh and confident all day long.
  4. Natural deodorants usually contain organic ingredients that are good for your skin, like shea butter or coconut oil. If you have sensitive skin, you may find that natural deodorants are less irritating than commercial products.
  5. You'll be doing your part to reduce your exposure to harmful chemicals and help the environment.  Most commercial deodorants contain chemicals that can pollute the environment. Natural deodorants are made with renewable, biodegradable ingredients that are gentle on the earth.
  6. They’re affordable. You can find natural deodorants at most health food stores and online. And they’re often cheaper than their chemical-laden counterparts.
If you're ready to make the switch to a natural deodorant, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First, it's important to find a deodorant that contains ingredients that work well for your body. Second, natural deodorants may not last as long as conventional deodorants, so you may need to reapply them more frequently, especially in the summer months. Remember, sweating is natural and nothing to be ashamed of.
If you’re looking for a healthier, more eco-friendly option, natural deodorants are the way to go! 
Lee walks us through some of the best options on the market:

This is a brand I use and love. It’s aluminium free and contains activated charcoal and essential oils to help absorb sweat and neutralise body odour. The 60ml jar can last up to 3-months and so is great value for money. What’s more this natural deodorant comes in 100% plastic-free packaging
Nuud - £11.95
I haven’t tried this brand yet, but it’s on my list. A tube lasts 6-7 weeks on average so is slightly more expensive than the activated charcoal version above. However, I’ve seen this advertised a lot across Instagram and people who use it seem to love it. Again, it’s aluminium free, 100% vegan and comes in a bioplastic tube made from sugarcane. It prevents odour by neutralizing bacteria with micro silver.
Wild - £12
Now, I’m excited about this one as I’m getting my first delivery of it this week! Wild offer a refillable deodorant stick that is aluminium free (notice a theme?) This one comes in a selection of fragrances so you can find one to suit your taste. Wild contains tapioca starch which absorbs moisture to keep you dry all day. I’ll report back once I’ve tried it!
Now I LOVE this brand. I saw an offer on Instagram last year for a sample and travel pack of 2 x 10ml tins for £5 and snapped it up. I love how small the tins are, and I just keep one in my bag. It took a bit of getting used to sweating after years of wearing an antiperspirant but there was no odour, and they have lovely natural scents. Carr Greens uses naturally derived plant sources and avoids plastic wherever possible. Their active ingredient is sodium bicarbonate (from soda ash) which prevents the growth of bacteria that causes the smell of sweat.
