The Problem with Antiperspirants

Most deodorants available on the market are designed to be antiperspirants. Aluminum is used in them because it effectively blocks and clogs pores in order to prevent perspiration. This causes a build-up of sweat that becomes trapped underneath the skin, and leads to uncomfortable bumps, painful inflammation, and an unpleasant odor. Letting your sweat release is not bad, and definitely outweighs the harmful effects that coincide with using aluminum-containing, or chemically manufactured deodorants.

 

Luckily, there are green alternatives to conventional antiperspirants. Rather than blocking your pores with unnecessary chemicals, natural deodorant creates a barrier that absorbs wetness, neutralizes odor, and prevents bacteria growth. They do not cause bumps, or any irritation. This allows for a smoother, cleaner shave. Unlike those that contain aluminum, natural deodorants do not leave yellow stains on clothing. They leave you and your threads feeling and looking fresh.

 

Changing a daily routine is never simple. Especially when changing something you’ve been accustomed to your entire life. Transitioning to a natural deodorant will take time to get used to. They do not reduce perspiration as well and antiperspirants do, and they may need to be reapplied during the day. After making the switch and sticking to it for a few weeks, you will notice the difference. Your underarms will feel fresh and stench free.

 

Finding the best, plant-based deodorant that works for you is essential when transitioning towards a more natural lifestyle. We want to make it easy for you to find what works best for you. It’s important to be skeptical of what you put on your body, and how it may impact your health. Most deodorants today are riddled with huge lists of complicated ingredients that contain harmful and unneeded chemicals.

Our 100% natural, plant-based deodorants are free from aluminum, alcohol, talc, parabens, SLS, Gluten, propylene-glycol, phthalate, triclosan, fragrances, artificial colors, baking soda, and any synthetics.

We care deeply about your health and providing a product that you’ll love.
