Natural deodorant reviews
You may have been reluctant to try a natural deodorant for fear of being left sweaty and smelly, but formulas have come a long way, combining effective odour neutralising and sweat absorption with high eco credentials on both ingredients, packaging and refill options too.
Unlike conventional deodorants and antiperspirants, a natural deodorant doesn't contain ingredients that for some people cause concern (not always justifiably), be they parabens preservatives or even aluminium salts which block the sweat glands from producing sweat. Because natural deodorants are aluminium-free, they don't block the sweat glands and so are not an antiperspirant. Where they score is their ability to zap whiff-causing bacteria with natural ingredients, rather than simply masking them with artificial scents that clash with your perfume. Ingredients such as bamboo and rice powder to absorb the sweat to keep you drier.
If you're looking to go plastic-free, natural deodorants often tick this box and they come in a variety of formulas from cream and gel to liquid sprays. Here are the ones we've put through their paces and can honestly say actually work.
