When it comes to natural deodorant, getting the results you need and how you can achieve them is key. If you’re looking to make your underarm health a priority with natural deodorant, here’s some simple reminders on cutting out the clutter from the ingredient label.
DO: Baking Soda + Magnesium
Look for these plant-based and mineral-derived ingredients to aid in neutralizing acidic odor-causing bacteria.
DO: Cocoa + Shea Butter
These smooth operators are extracted from naturally-grown plants. These ingredients are known to help moisturize and soften the feel of your skin.
DO: Natural Fragrance
That sweet smell you enjoy every time you open a natural deodorant, like Schmidt’s? That’s the distilled essence of plant-derived materials like essential oils and natural isolates.
Most antiperspirants use aluminum to prevent certain glands from producing sweat. This is typically a temporary fix, and one that prevents your body’s healthy process of perspiring. Schmidt’s natural deodorant never contain aluminum salts. Instead, we use plant-based powders to help neutralize odor and keep you fresh.
DON’T: Propylene glycol
This ingredient, sometimes derived from petrochemicals, is often referred to as an irritant and neurotoxin.
If the FDA has banned the use of this chemical in soaps, why include it in your deodorant?
DON’T: Artificial Fragrance
Many fragrances in conventional products can be produced artificially and are often derived from animal sources or petrochemicals. And, that stinks.
