When it comes to deodorants, I always recommend going natural. They allow your body to complete it's natural detoxification process, without clogging pores or causing irritation. I always get asked 'do natural deodorants really work?!'. The answer? They absolutely do! Natural deodorants effectively work to neutralise body odour while also preventing bacterial build up. With so many amazing natural deodorants here on Nourished Life, it can be difficult to know where to start! To make things easier, I have decided to create separate guides discussing each type of deodorant we have available!
Agent Nateur holi(stick) N°3 deodorant
The Agent Nateur holi(stick) N°3 deodorant is one of our most recent arrivals! It's a long lasting stick deodorant that keeps you fresh from morning til night. It's actually handmade and has a subtle sweet scent of honey and lavender. Housed in gorgeous packaging, this deodorant contains food grade ingredients such as Organic Coconut Oil, Beeswax, Raw Organic Honey and Sunflower Butter! It does contain Bicarb Soda, however is suitable for all skin types. If you have sensitive underarms, I recommend testing on the inside of your wrist for 2-3 days before use.
Earths Purities Ladies Natural Deodorant
One of my favourite stick deodorants is the Earths Purities Ladies Natural Deodorant which is a semi hard paste that comes in a 100% post consumer recycled paper. It contains all natural ingredients including Beeswax, Coconut Oil, Lavender and Shea Butter which soothes underarms while preventing body odour. It's also made with a blend of Bentonite Clay and Diatomaceous Earth which may help to absorb wetness and odour by magnetically gripping onto toxins and removing them from the body. This deodorant does contain a small amount of Bicarb Soda which is ideal for those with sensitive skin. For men, the Earths Purities Mens Natural Deodorant is ideal!
The LaVanila Deodorants not only smell amazing, they also really work! They are all Bicarb Free (except for the LaVanila Deodorant Sport Luxe), clinically tested and dermatologist recommended. As they are free from bicarb, these deodorants are perfect for anyone with ultra sensitive underarms. They're a creamy, stick formulation that is nice and easy to apply. What I love most about the LaVanila Deodorants is that there are so many scents to choose from! I love the LaVanila Deodorant Vanilla Passion Fruit for its fruity scent and the LaVanila Deodorant Fragrance Free for days when I want something a little more gentle.
Schmidt's Deodorant Sticks
Schmidt's Deodorant Sticks are made with all natural, vegan and cruelty free ingredients! They are also toxin free, of course and made with a blend of luxurious scents. They keep your underarms odour free and dry, without polluting your body with harmful chemicals. The stick formulation is my favourite from the Schmidt's range as they can easily be applied on the go! For men, I recommend the Schmidt's Cedarwood + Juniper Deodorant Stick which has a masculine woody scent that is quickly absorbed into the skin. If you're looking for something more feminine, the Schmidt's Lavender + Sage Deodorant Stick has a beautiful floral scent that doesn't leave a sticky reside on the skin.
