I often write about natural deodorants because I'm always finding great new products that I know you will love! Recently I wrote a blog post all about the process of detoxifying your armpits. Switching to a natural deodorant does take time, especially if you have been using chemical based deodorants for most of your life! Although all of the deodorants we stock on Nourished Life are made with gentle, natural deodorants, if you have sensitive armpits there are a few that you should reach for! Bi-carb is often the culprit behind irritation, rashes and redness. So if your underarms are easily irritated, you may benefit from using natural deodorants that are bi-carb free! These deodorants won't clog your pores and actually protect the natural detoxification of your body!
Which bi-carb free deodorants do I recommend?
Earths Purities - Pure for Her Bi-Carb Free Deodorant
One of my most recent discoveries is the Earths Purities - Pure for Her Bi-Carb Free Deodorant. It has a beautiful scent which comes from the essential oils of Lavender, Vanilla, Grapefruit, Violet & Black Pepper and is a gentle formulation of natural ingredients including Apple Cider Vinegar, Witch Hazel, Bentonite Clay, Diatomaceous Earth and Arrowroot Powder that are ideal for anyone with sensitivities. The inclusion of Colloidal Silver means it is also naturally antibacterial. Free from Bi-Carb Soda, this deodorant is also vegan and of course cruelty free.
The LaVanila Deodorant range
If your skin is easily irritated then the LaVanila Deodorants are an ideal option for you! Free from Bi-Carb, these deodorants have been clinically tested and recommended by dermatologists. They have also been created using ingredients like Corn Starch and Silica which work well to neutralise odour and absorb moisture. They're a creamy stick formula that you can apply easily onto clean, dry armpits. One of my favourite scents is the LaVanila Deodorant Vanilla PassionFruit which smells like a tropical holiday.
