Five benefits of using a natural deodorant

Deodorant plays an important part in most people’s personal hygiene regimes. Whether you’re sweating it out at the gym or working at your desk, anyone is vulnerable to body odour, particularly during this time of the year when temperatures soar.

In addition to showering every day and putting on fresh clothing, the most effective way to fight body odour is to use a good quality deodorant. However, many mass-produced, store-bought deodorants contain various artificial ingredients and chemicals that not only have the potential to cause skin irritation but may also pose health risks in the long run. 

Switching to a natural deodorant is a simple lifestyle change that you won’t look back on. Earthsap, a leader in the natural personal care sector, has identified five benefits of switching to a natural deodorant:

  1. They are free from artificial chemicals

Natural deodorants are made using natural and organic ingredients, and are free from potentially harmful chemicals such as parabens, aluminium and phthalates.

  1. They are kind to the skin

The underarm area can be very sensitive, particularly if you shave it regularly. Many people experience sensitivity, irritation and itchiness when they use a regular deodorants because some of the ingredients present in these products are quite harsh. Natural deodorants are formulated without these harsh ingredients, and are usually gentler on the skin and less likely to cause irritation. They are a great option for anyone suffering from sensitive skin or skin allergies. 

  1. They reduce body odour without stopping sweat

Did you know that it’s not actually sweat that smells, but rather the sweat combined with the bacteria on the skin? Natural deodorants do not block sweat ducts or stop us from sweating. Instead, they make use of natural ingredients like essential oils, baking soda and coconut oil to neutralise the odour, allowing the body to sweat without any unpleasant odours. 

  1. They are gentle on clothing

Have you ever noticed unsightly yellow marks below the armpits on light clothing? Conventional deodorants contain aluminium, which is known to cause yellow stains on light clothing. What’s more, they may make the fabric stiff, changing its texture. Natural deodorants are gentle on clothes, don’t leave stains and won’t ruin the fabric.

  1. They are kind to the environment

Natural deodorants are usually made from eco-friendly, sustainable and biodegradable ingredients, making them a better choice for the environment.
