Natural deodorant, it’s a thing. There are loads of benefits to consider which could help you
switch from conventional to natural in an instant.
Why do we sweat?
It’s a natural body function to sweat, ensuring our bodies release all the toxins we ingest and absorb on a daily basis, and also regulating our overall body temperature — two very important jobs.
Conventional deodorants, including antiperspirants, clog up our pores and hinder the body
from releasing toxins. Apart from clogging, conventional deodorants can also be the root cause of skin irritations like itchy armpits and bumpy, irritable skin, and can sometimes lead to more serious health risks.
Chemicals such as aluminium compounds and parabens that are often found in deodorants are directly absorbed into the skin and can cause estrogen-like hormonal effect; reports say that some ingredients in deodorant can be linked to Alzheimer’s, breast cancer and infertility.
Benefits of natural deodorant
Manufactured with NATURAL ingredients, it combats and soothes skin issues and sensitivities.
Swapping over can unblock your pores, promote healthy sweat production, and can also shrink pores and soothe itchy, razorburned skin.
Some natural deodorant ingredients can include bentonite clay, baking soda, honey or
beeswax, coconut oil, olive oil and essential oils. All ingredients we’re familiar with.
