In a world where we’re increasingly mindful of what we put in and on our bodies, the demand for natural, eco-friendly, and effective personal care products has never been greater. Among these, natural deodorants have gained significant popularity as people seek alternatives to conventional options laden with synthetic chemicals.
At ashbury BLOOM• we’re committed to offering products that prioritize your well-being and the planet’s health. In this blog, we’ll explore the benefits of natural deodorants and why you should consider making the switch.
What Are Natural Deodorants?
Natural deodorants are a refreshing departure from traditional deodorants and antiperspirants, which often contain aluminum compounds, parabens, and synthetic fragrances. In contrast, natural deodorants are formulated with clean, plant-based ingredients that neutralize odor and keep you feeling fresh.
What’s the difference between antiperspirants and natural deodorants?
What’s the difference between antiperspirants and natural deodorants: Antiperspirants use aluminum to “plug” your sweat glands, which prevents your body from producing sweat. We are meant to sweat in order to excrete toxins and regulate body temperature. Natural deodorants contain no aluminum, so you still sweat, but the formula works to neutralize body odour. That’s because sweat itself doesn’t actually smell. It’s the bacteria that grows on the sweat that causes odour.
For those that sweat a lot, we recommend a deodorant with Tea Tree such as our Lemon or Lavender and Tea Tree deodorants made with essential oil that is believed to be anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. We’ve included baking soda as a deodorizer in our formula and arrowroot powder as an absorbent. For those sensitive to the abrasiveness of baking soda or first-time deodorant users we recommend our Sensitive (Baking Soda Free) deodorant.
Why Choose Natural Deodorants?
1. Health-conscious Ingredients: Natural deodorants typically contain ingredients like baking soda, arrowroot powder, coconut oil, and essential oils. These ingredients are gentle on the skin and reduce the risk of irritation, making them suitable for sensitive skin types.
2. Aluminum-Free: Conventional deodorants often contain aluminum compounds that block sweat glands to reduce perspiration. Natural deodorants, on the other hand, allow your body to sweat naturally while combating odor effectively.
3. No Synthetic Fragrances: Natural deodorants use essential oils for a pleasant, natural scent without artificial additives.
4. Eco-friendly: Many natural deodorant brands prioritize sustainability by using recyclable packaging and environmentally friendly manufacturing processes, reducing their carbon footprint.
5. Cruelty-Free: Most natural deodorants are not tested on animals, aligning with ethical consumer values.
Tips for Switching to Natural Deodorants
1. Give It Time: Your body may need an adjustment period when switching from conventional to natural deodorants. Be patient and allow between 1 to 3 months for your body to adjust.
2. Stay Fresh: Reapply your natural deodorant as needed throughout the day, especially during hot weather or after physical activity.
3. Understand the Ingredients: Familiarize yourself with the ingredients in your chosen natural deodorant to ensure they align with your values and skin type.
4. Consider Scent Preferences: Natural deodorants come in various scents, so explore options that appeal to your senses.
