The Zero Waste Natural Deodorant That Never Lets Me Down

The Natural Deodorant Co Clean and Active Deodorant Balm Reviews

What’s the Difference Between Deodorant and Anti-Perspirant?

Conventional anti-perspirants deodorants stop you sweating. They generally use aluminium salts to block the pores, to stop the sweat from escaping. And if sweat does escape, the deodorant minimises the small caused when sweat reacts with the air, creating odour. So the anti-perspirant stops the sweat from leaving your arm pit. But when it does come through, the deodorant part is needed.

Why Choose a Natural Deodorant?

Natural deodorant will not stop you sweating, as it’s not an anti-perspirant. Instead, this deodorant neutralises the smell that happens when sweat comes into contact with bacteria.

Enter The Natural Deodorant Co.: Zero Waste Natural Deodorant

I’ve been using The Natural Deodorant Co. deodorants for several years now and they have never let me down. I’m writing this blog post in the middle of a heatwave, with temperatures having reached 31 degrees here today. I’ve walked the kids to school and back (about 20 minutes each way, twice) and also sat in a hot car for ten minutes on the way to somewhere else and yes, I have sweated. But do I smell of sweat? Nope!

Which Natural Deodorant Should I Choose?

This all-natural deodorant is available in several scents (I’ve tried most of them and they all smell great) and three different strengths. So you can choose the best one for you.

What If You’re Sensitive to Bicarbonate of Soda?

As you can see in the ingredients above, Sodium Bicarbonate is listed as the first ingredient for Active and the third for Clean. This makes it very effective, but it can be irritating to sensitive skin. If you are sensitive to Bicarbonate of Soda the Clean or Gentle versions may be better for you.

What About A Transition Period?

Some people report a transition period when swapping to a natural deodorant, as the body adjusts to not having antiperspirants. Personally I have never found this, but if you do, try to stick it out if you can! Every body is different but this one worked perfectly for me from the get go, which is why it’s my number 1!
