At first thought, wearing an all natural deodorant does not sound like a good idea. Because when it comes to deodorant, you can’t really skimp on effectiveness. A deodorant needs to be effective and long lasting, otherwise what’s the point? Fortunately, there are several natural brands on the market that get the job done. But before we review them, let’s take a look at why it’s best to go natural.
The armpit is one of the body’s most sensitive area. Anything that is applied to that area will be directly absorbed into your body and then into your bloodstream. It’s scary to think about, especially when you consider that a lot of the popular deodorants contain chemicals such as parabens, sulfates, and other toxins. The two chemicals that you really want avoid are Aluminum Chlorohydrate or Aluminum Zirconium. They have been linked to breast cancer and other types of diseases.
Now we’ll take a look at some options that will keep both you and the people around you happy. Each deodorant listed below is natural and proven to work.
1. Green Tidings
Made in the USA, Green Tidings is one of the very best. This non-toxic deodorant gets the job done. It’s especially good at keeping you cool and blocking odor during intense exercise, thus making it the best option for athletes.
Green Tidings deodorant is a vegan product and only contains a few, high quality ingredients. They include: coconut oil, shea butter, Candelilla Wax, Magnesium Oil, and Arrowroot Powder. The scented version contains lavender while the unscented version does not.
A great advantage with this brand is how long the bottle lasts. You can go a couple months with continuous usage before you need to buy a replacement, and it’s a lot cheaper to buy the replacement than a new bottle.
2. Vi-Tae 100% Confident
Vi Tae is one of the very best products on the market. It destroys bacteria while also keeping you smelling good throughout your day. It’s a gentle formula that will not irritate your skin. The main ingredients include essential oils such as: tea tree, spanish sage, pine, and lemon.
This product is a spray, so it may take some time to get used to. But most people actually find that a spray is easier to use, and more convenient. You just have to make sure that you don’t spray too much on at a time.
What is especially great about Vi Tae deodorant is that it offers a money back guarantee. There are not many personal hygiene products for sale that offer guarantees, and one year is almost unheard of. It just shows how much this company believes in their products. Therefore you have nothing to lose by trying it out.
This is a brand that has been around for a while, and for good reason. Truly’s is especially good for those with sensitive skin. The main ingredient is coconut oil and this ingredient will moisturize your skin while also fighting bacteria growth. You also get a light coconut fragrance. The only three other ingredients are baking soda, bees wax, and powdered sugar.
Truly’s deodorant is a cream, and this may take some time getting used to. It’s a little messier and can makes for more work. You will usually have to wipe your hand after application. Despite all this, it’s still a terrific product with great reviews. The product also comes with a money back guarantee.
4. Herban Cowboy
Forest is a men’s deodorant produced by Herban Cowboy. It uses natural herbal extracts to help you maintain that fresh evergreen smell without harsh ingredients or preservatives.
Herban Cowboy’s deodorant has a woodsy scent, but the scent is not overwhelming. It smells fresh, and masculine- the perfect choice for a man who works outside. While working, you can count on receiving all day odor protection.
5. Silver Shield
This is an inexpensive deodorant made in the USA. You have the option to buy either a roll-on or spray-on type. Despite the cheap cost, this product is well-made and is designed to give your body an optimal pH level. Silver Shield is terrific at getting rid of the bad bacteria, and it also has a nice scent that is appealing to both men and women.
The ingredient list is a health conscious consumer’s dream- distilled water, essential oils, aloe vera, grapefruit seed extract, nanosilver, and baking soda. That’s several different ingredients and no need for a scientific dictionary.
Silver Shield also distinguishes itself as an eco-friendly brand. Every bottle is BPA free and is build to last. So instead of throwing away the bottle after the product is gone, you can conveniently order refills online. This will save you money, while also saving the environment.
So there you have it, five natural brands that actually work. Our recommendation is to try out a couple of them to see which one you like best. And remember, a few of them have money back guarantees so you have absolutely nothing to lose.
