Sweating is a natural cooling and detoxifying process that your body does to keep you healthy. But did you know that deodorants don’t actually stop you from sweating, like an antiperspirant does, instead, it replaces the bad odours with a lovely long-lasting scent. We’ve found some all natural and cruelty free deodorants to keep you smelling fresh and clean all year round.
Sensitive skin? The Bionsen deodorant is perfect for you. Specially formulated with Japanese thermal spa minerals that help nourish and protect your skin and to gently deodorise, leaving a fresh smell all day.
If you’re looking for a plastic-free deodorant, Pit Putty is a great one to try. This brand is vegan, cruelty-free and uses natural ingredients. It’s non-greasy and can certainly hold up to the heat. Simply rub a bean-sized portion of the cream onto your underarms and you’ll be good to go.
We had no idea there was a deodorant that can last up to 7 days, until we came across Nuud. Their deodorant is vegan friendly and doesn’t contain artificial scents (or any scent at all) or alcohol making it great for sensitive skin and its packaging is made from sugarcane so is fully recyclable. Not only that but over half a million armpits are making a change to the world by using this product. Watch below.
