9 Natural and Toxin-Free Deodorants Rumored to be Ace
Having read our post on why we think it's time we all changed for a non-toxic and natural deodorant, you might be curious to know what one would actually look like. We've selected 9 sticks, roll-ons and sprays that are rumored to be ace!
First of all: we’re no beauty experts or dermatologists. But, we are obsessed with finding the very best organic and natural products out there—to use ourselves and to share with you guys. So, right now we’re trying to make sense of the world of natural deodorants; what are the most natural choices; what really works?
One thing we’ve discovered about the natural stink-stoppers is that some products work perfectly for some and not at all for others. Well, maybe that shouldn’t be so surprising really. If you compare it to regular skin care (and we think you can), you’ll find that there is no miracle cream that fits everyone skin type perfectly—so why should there be one such deodorant? We’re different, and our sweat, bacteria and smells are different. Embrace it, people. Therefor, you might need to try a few before you find your perfect fit.
And speaking of bacteria: one thing we must never forget is that what makes out armpits smell isn’t the sweat itself—sweat doesn’t smell—it’s the bacteria that lives on your skin that’s the bad guy. This means that if you want to give your deodorant a chance to work its magic, you must always apply it onto clean and dry skin. Always. And, for God’s sake, don’t share it with others. You don’t want someone else’s stinky bacteria in your armpit, or all over your deodorant, do you?
And one final thing: Don’t forget that it might take some time for the body to get used to your new and natural deodorant, so don’t give up if it doesn’t work immediately.
Good luck, and please do share all your deo-experiences so we can learn from each other!
