All-Natural Deodorant: It Works & Here's Our Faves
We all remember what it was like in middle-school: when your mom sat you down for "the talk" which included all the things you DIDN'T need to know about boys, and all the things you didn't want to know about your own body. And while the premise of using deodorant was probably part of that talk, what she didn't mention was the harmful effects that drugstore deodorants can have your body. Here's three of our favorite all-natural (cruelty free!) deodorants that actually work, without the nasty stuff, like aluminum or parabens.
Schmidt's Natural Deodorant
We first heard about this deodorant from Estee Lalonde who swears by the sensitive skin formula, and we've quickly come to love it as well. With so many scent options from Geranium Flower to Bergamont & Lime to Cedarwood & Juniper (plus a fragrance free formula for super sensitive pits!) you're bound to find one for you. They also offer most scents in both stick and pot version, plus a sensitive skin line for those prone to redness and irritation.
Apparently the #1 Natural Deodorant on the market, Native contains ingredients like Jojoba Oil and Shea butter for easy application and a plethora of other all-natural ingredients to combat sweat. A favorite amongst gym-goers who prefer all-natural deodorant, they boast that one application lasts all day, and with permanent and seasonal scents for a little fun, Native might be the match for you.
Sold in Sephoras everywhere, LaVanila is the founder of "The Healthy Deodorant" formulated with all natural ingredients, no parabens, and no aluminum. They also offer a sport line, catering to users who find the original formulas too light for rigorous activity. With the end of summertime, they've released their "LaVanila Healthy Girl Mini Deodorant", a set of two mini deodorants catered for middle-school age girls to get them started off right- all natural and healthy. Way to go LaVanila!
