5 Reasons why you should be using Natural Deodorant
Natural deodorants have been gaining popularity in recent years as more people are becoming conscious about the ingredients they use in their personal care products. Unlike conventional deodorants, natural deodorants are free from harmful chemicals like aluminum, parabens, and phthalates. Now, you probably know that switching to natural products is wonderful for your health and the planet, but here are five surprising benefits of switching to natural deodorants:
Non-toxic and gentle on the skin
Many conventional deodorants contain harsh chemicals that can harm your skin and overall health. Some of the most concerning ingredients found in conventional deodorants include aluminum, parabens, and phthalates.
Aluminum is a common ingredient in antiperspirants, which work by blocking sweat glands to reduce sweating. However, aluminum has been linked to several health concerns and can clog pores and cause irritation, which can lead to a range of skin problems.
Parabens and phthalates are two other ingredients commonly found in conventional deodorants. Parabens are used as preservatives, while phthalates are used as fragrances. Both of these chemicals have been linked to hormonal imbalances and other health concerns.
Our natural deodorants, on the other hand, use natural ingredients that are gentle on the skin and free from harmful chemicals. One of our natural active ingredients to help absorb sweat and minimize bad odours is Magnesium Hydroxide, also very gentle on the skin. This ingredient is featured in our deodorants packaged into the white tubes, which are great for those with sensitive skin. Try Lemongrass & Tea Tree or Vanilla & Coconut. Sodium bicarbonate, also known as baking soda, is another active ingredient we feature in our deodorants. Baking soda is a natural antibacterial and helps to neutralize odours caused by sweat. Deodorants packaged into black tubes do contain baking soda, for a harder working extra active formula. Try our Lavender & Sweet Orange or Cedarwood & Juniper Berry to feel the difference.
By using natural deodorants with these ingredients, you can avoid the potentially harmful chemicals found in conventional deodorants. You'll be protecting your skin from irritation and reducing your exposure to potentially harmful chemicals that could negatively impact your health.
Eliminates body odour naturally
The primary function of our natural deodorants is to eliminate body odour caused by sweat using natural ingredients. One of the main ingredients in our natural deodorants is coconut oil, which is known for its antibacterial properties. Coconut oil helps to kill the bacteria that cause body odour, while also moisturizing and nourishing the skin. It is also gentle on the skin and doesn't clog pores, making it a perfect choice for those with sensitive skin.
Another natural ingredient used in our natural deodorants is tea tree oil, found in our Lemongrass & Tea Tree Deodorant, which is known for its antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties. Tea tree oil helps to eliminate odour-causing bacteria, while also soothing the skin and reducing inflammation. It is also a natural astringent, which means it helps to tighten pores and reduce sweat.
Lavender oil is an ingredient often used for its calming and soothing properties. It also has a refreshing and pleasant scent, making it a popular choice for those who want a natural and fresh deodorant. You can find lavender in our Lavender & Sweet Orange Deodorant.
By using natural deodorants with these ingredients, you can effectively eliminate body odour without compromising your skin's health. Unlike conventional deodorants that can clog your pores, cause irritation, and even lead to health problems, natural deodorants are a safe and gentle option for managing body odour.
Natural deodorants work differently than antiperspirants. Instead of blocking sweat glands, they allow your body to sweat naturally. Sweating is a natural and healthy process that helps regulate body temperature and eliminate toxins from the body. However, natural deodorants contain ingredients that can help to absorb sweat and keep you feeling dry and fresh throughout the day.
Some absorbent ingredients found in our natural deodorants are arrowroot powder, kaolin clay, magnesium hydroxide and/or baking soda. These ingredients helps to absorb moisture, sweat and reduce wetness, which can help to reduce body odour. It also has a soft and smooth texture that feels great on the skin!
By using natural absorbent ingredients like arrowroot powder and baking soda, you can reduce sweat and stay fresh throughout the day. So why not make the switch to a natural deodorant such as our Vanilla & Coconut Deodorant today and enjoy all the benefits it has to offer?
In addition to the benefits for your skin and health, natural deodorants also offer environmental benefits that conventional deodorants do not. Most conventional deodorants come in plastic packaging while our natural deodorants are packaged in eco-friendly, paperboard, biodegradable materials!
But it's not just the packaging that makes our natural deodorants a more sustainable choice. They are made with natural, sustainably sourced ingredients that are harvested in a way that ensures the long-term health and well-being of the ecosystems in which they grow.
By choosing natural deodorants made with eco-friendly packaging and sustainable ingredients, you can reduce your environmental impact and contribute to a healthier planet. Making small changes like this can add up to big impacts over time, and it's a simple way to make a positive difference in the world.
As consumers, we have the power to make choices that align with our values and contribute to a more ethical and compassionate world. One of the ways we can do this is by choosing products that are cruelty-free, meaning they were not tested on animals.
Unfortunately, many conventional personal care products, including deodorants, are tested on animals before they are approved for sale. This is why many people are turning to natural products that are cruelty-free.
At Emerald Earth, we are committed to creating products that align with our customer's values, which is why all of our products are cruelty-free. This means you can feel confident that the deodorant you're using was never tested on animals. We test all of our products on ourself first, then friends and family.
In conclusion, there are many benefits to using natural deodorants, including their non-toxic and gentle nature, their ability to eliminate odour naturally, their absorbent properties, their environmental friendliness, and their cruelty-free status. If you're looking for a safer and more natural way to manage body odour, consider switching to a natural deodorant.
