Conventional aluminium containing deodorants have always been known as the best personal care product of its type, constantly being chosen over their natural and organic competitors.
Aluminium is the active ingredient antiperspirant deodorants use to prevent sweat and keep underarms dry, by clogging and blocking the sweat glands, therefore preventing our bodies from detoxing through natural elimination processes. Toxins then end up being stored in the lymphatic system which plays a major role in immune and hormonal function.
Recently, is has been discovered that aluminium, known as a neurotoxin, is linked to breast cancer, and neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s. And while there is no definitive study to show that aluminium alone causes these diseases, long term exposure is a massive risk factor. So it makes sense to look into natural alternatives right?
Thankfully, this information has resulted in many brands developing natural, aluminium free formulas, free from harsh chemicals, and ingredients you cant pronounce. And with more brands, means more options, from sensitive skin, to magnesium enriched or double strength.
Its now easier and more accessible to find a natural, safe and effective alternative than ever before.
Below we have gathered some of our much-loved natural, long lasting and highly effective deodorants from our favourite brands, free from aluminium and other harmful chemicals.
