Finding a good, truly natural deodorant that really works can be the pits!
One of the biggest concerns about mainstream, deodorants + antiperspirants is that the product’s ingredients can sneak into our bloodstream through open pores, knicks + cuts from shaving. Toxic ingredients like aluminum, propylene glycol + phthalates can cause a ton of health issues. And, parabens mimic estrogen + have been found in tumor tissue of Breast Cancer patients.
The problem with antiperspirant is that it actually stops you from sweating by chemically blocking your sweat glands, trapping harmful toxins in. Deodorant, although less convenient is a healthier choice because allows your body to do it’s thing + sweat the toxins out, neutralizing the smell in the process.
Here are a few totally healthy, all-natural + organic deodorants to check out!

I LOVE Pit Potion available exclusively through Nature of Beauty. It has very little detectable aroma, slows perspiration, feels great, goes on clear, and is more effective than any others I’ve tried.
