Giving up my mainstream antiperspirant and switching to a natural deodorant was one of the very last changes I made on my toxin-free quest. I seriously must have tested every brand on the market before narrowing it down to the the beauties I stock!
The criteria to make it onto the Nourished Life shelf was not easy, they must not only be natural and smell good, they actually have to work!
Your Natural & Organic Deodorant Guide
Giving up my mainstream antiperspirant and switching to a natural deodorant was one of the very last changes I made on my toxin-free quest. I seriously must have tested every brand on the market before narrowing it down to the the beauties I stock! The criteria to make it onto the Nourished Life shelf was not easy, they must not only be natural and smell good, they actually have to work!
Regular antiperspirants can be filled with loads of nasties but with the advancements in green science, natural deodorant formulas can actually work even better than their chemical counterparts!
Here is my guide to the best all natural deodorants, tried and tested by myself and other Nourished Life customers. Of course, none of these contain any nasties, especially no aluminium!
