The Many Benefits of Using All-Natural Deodorant
Updated: Dec 13, 2019
Most people don’t realize there is a huge difference between deodorants and antiperspirants. Understanding how each work is key when choosing the right product for your needs.
Deodorants are primarily used to prevent odour from armpit sweat, while antiperspirants essentially block the sweating process.
Sweating is the body’s way of extracting toxins and actually improves a person's overall hygiene and health by allowing the body to eliminate these harmful toxins.
Most commercial antiperspirants and deodorants are loaded with toxic chemicals and can cause skin problems such as dry skin, irritated armpits, rashes, itching, and more.
Armpit sweat can do a number on shirts due to nasty armpit stains. Interestingly enough, the armpit stains are not actually caused by sweat, they are caused by the aluminum found in your typical supermarket deodorant. Organic deodorant is made from 100 percent natural ingredients and won't contain aluminum, keeping your shirt stain-free. White streaks on dark clothing is another common issue, something that doesn't happen with organic deodorant.
No one wants BO, and armpits are notorious for smelling bad. An all-natural deodorant won't disrupt the natural sweating process, but they will mask any resulting odour.
People who have used antiperspirant for multiple years may need to give their body a few days to adjust before making the change to all-natural deodorant. The aluminum and other chemicals contained in antiperspirants will need some time to exit the body. Exfoliating the area can help quicken the detoxifying process. It's not uncommon for people to sweat a little more after throwing away their antiperspirant. Don't worry, this is your body's way of shedding these unwanted chemicals that have been building up. Remember, this natural process is essential in a healthier lifestyle.
It doesn't take long for your skin to thank you after making the change to organic deodorant. Within only a few days, many of our customers find that their skin is softer and more hydrated.
Our all-natural deodorants are made of high-quality ingredients that you'll actually recognize such as essential oils, baking soda, beeswax, and even mango butter. This is a much better alternative to the aluminum, triclosan, silica, parabens and other harmful chemicals found in non-organic deodorants and antiperspirants.
There are many fantastic options available once you make the switch to all-natural deodorant, with many different scents to pick from. We've recently launched our all-natural deodorant stick and we've received some excellent feedback from our customers. Our deodorants are available unscented or you can choose from various lightly scented ones. Take a look at our organic deodorants, and let us know your favourite scent.
