Check the supermarkets and skin stores and there are an abundance of antiperspirants, but not many deodorants. It’s just not healthy to stop the pores from sweating, and it’s not sweat that smells but when bacteria (from stress) mixes with the sweat this is what causes armpit odour.
Do you know what the easiest eco friendly cheapest deodorant ever is? Bicarbonate of soda, or baking soda. However, I must warn you that it may cause skin irritation in some people, but it is absolutely amazing in eliminating any hint of underarm pong.
I’ve tried a few naturally made deodorants by Ben & Anna. The grapefruit one is especially nice.
The Persian lime one is nice too.
To be honest, these deodorant sticks do not last as long as plain old baking soda (which is soooo cheap), but it is certainly nice to know that the armpit can breathe. The skin is designed to breath and not to choke from antiperspirants.
Rubbing a lemon or lime under the armpit is also helpful, although it may leave a sticky residue and takes time to dry.
What is your favourite natural deodorant, or do you stick to the usual antiperspirants?
