Natural deodorant without antiperspirant can seem a little scary if you’ve never tried it, or if you’re new to using natural ingredients in your self care routine. But there’s a reason why so many people are swapping their commercial antiperspirants for natural deodorant.
Research shows that aluminum-based ingredients as well as other chemicals in commercial antiperspirants have been linked to certain major diseases. Antiperspirants are also made to prevent our bodies from sweating, a natural and normal function of the skin. Sweating is the body’s way of releasing toxins—if we don’t sweat, we’re not letting our body go through its natural detoxification process.
Natural deodorant might not keep you from perspiring, but that’s ok! Believe it or not, what causes body odor is not sweat; it’s bacteria. Fortunately, there are many natural options with ingredients that will keep you smelling fresh and help eliminate odor-causing germs.
A really simple and effective way to replace your antiperspirant is to make your own healthy deodorant.
