5 no fuss all natural deodorants that really work

Short read

Looking for aluminium free, paraben free, natural deodorant options? Don't sweat it, here are five options we love, that look after your pits - and the planet.

Hannah Reed 20 February 2019

If you’ve ever looked at the label of your mainstream deodorant, you might notice that the majority of its ingredients are questionable, if not totally unrecognisable. Some may even be harmful chemicals. Chances are, if you wouldn’t eat it or can’t pronounce it, you might want to skip putting it on your skin.

Underarms are incredibly absorbent, made up of lymph nodes, sweat glands and hormone receptors. Applying anything directly to them is a surefire way for your body to soak up every bit. Some of the harsh chemicals found in antiperspirants have been linked to hormone imbalance, Alzheimer’s disease, asthma, allergic reactions...we could go on.

If you see the words: paraben, aluminum, triclosan, phthalate, or fragrance on your deo label,  it’s time to toss it - as it could be seriously affecting your wellbeing.

But that doesn’t mean you have to risk being less-than-fresh.

All Natural Deodorant

Going natural doesn't' mean you have to be worried about pong

We’ve put together a list of natural and vegan deodorant alternatives that are free of parabens and aluminium and other nasties to keep you smelling good and feeling clean. 

These deodorants rely on real, organic ingredients and use familiar items like baking soda, coconut oil, shea butter and essential oils to reduce moisture, keep your pits smooth and fight off odour-causing bacteria. They’re not only better for your health, but they’re sustainably sourced and cruelty-free, so they’re good for the planet, too.

The Natural Deodorant Company

We know that everyone is different and some of us need a little more personalisation when it comes to skin products. The Natural Deodorant Company is the first to offer options when it comes to natural deo, providing three separate formulas based on skin-type and lifestyle: the Clean, Gentle, and Active Deodorant Balms. Each creamy balm moisturises with coconut oil and shea butter, but vary in magnesium, sodium bicarbonate and white clay based on how much protection you’re looking for.

Cacao Pow Deo Bar

If the phrase “the fewer ingredients, the better” resonates with you, so will the Cacao Pow Deo Bar. Just three simple ingredients make up this powerful little formula: cacao butter, bicarbonate of soda and zinc oxide. It’s a solid natural deodorant, that is perfectly packaged in a little glass jar. Return the glass jar and you'll get money off your next order.

Earth Conscious

Earth Conscious’ team started their deodorant testing by making sure all their ingredients are safe enough to eat and they constantly revisit the formula to ensure there isn’t something they could be doing better. They refuse to add any ingredients that they aren’t 100% certain about and are incredibly transparent about what they use, why they use it,and what they have chosen to leave out. Earth Conscious gives you two options. There’s a natural, plastic free deodorant in a stick, packaged in a biodegradable cardboard applicator or the same formula comes in a metal, recyclable tin.

If you’re looking for something totally different, Lush offers a powder deodorant in addition to their bars, taking advantage of the powerful essence of herbs. Best-seller The Greeench uses a combination of thyme, rosemary, and tea tree with magnesium and sodium bicarbonate to deodorise and tackle wetness. And if you need something even stronger, The Guv’ner blends sage, lavender, and patchouli with lycopodium base and charcoal (which also happens to combat white marks).
