I am asked often why switch to natural deodorants when the deodorant people are using works for them? I wanted to dig into the pits today.
Conventional deodorants and many "natural" deodorants include harmful ingredients which inhibit proper body function and can be absorbed into our bloodstream. Aluminum Chloride is an effective antiperspirant since it effectively blocks sweat ducts but it is also a known neurotoxin. Our body needs to perspire to release toxins, by blocking sweat we are going against our body's natural function. In addition to Aluminum, deodorants often contain the antibacterial petroleum based ingredient Triclosan, Propylene Glycol, which is used in many things including anti-freeze, and synthetic fragrance,which can be made of thousands of unregulated chemicals.
We now have effective natural deodorants that eliminate the need for these potentially harmful ingredients. Look for a mix of active natural ingredients like baking soda that neutralize odor as well as soothing organic oils and butters.
Our Lime & Vetiver Cream Deodorant is organic, effective, and smells so good. The harmonious combination of natural ingredients that work together to fight odor, bacteria and wetness. Each ingredient has a purpose and, when put together, they work some magic. For example, we use Organic Arrowroot Powder to help keep you dry, Aluminum Free Baking Soda to help neutralize odor, Organic Hops Extract to fight against bacteria, and Organic Lime, Lemongrass and Vetiver Essential Oils to keep you smelling fresh.
