If you haven’t already made the switch to a natural deodorant, you’ve probably seen them all over and are probably curious about what the big deal is. Of course, you should do what feels right for you but if you’re wondering what you’re missing, then keep on reading. Even though your run-of-the-mill antiperspirants might not be proven harmful, some use ingredients like aluminum that work to block sweat from being released by the body. Natural deodorants, on the other hand, are typically made with moisture-absorbing ingredients like baking soda and plant-based starches that help soak up dampness without stopping the body from sweating.
There are a wide variety of natural deodorants out there, and as always, finding the right one for you and your body will require some trial and error. Plus, seeing as we’ll likely be social distancing for a while longer, there’s never been a better time to test the waters and see which one(s) work best for you. Just be mindful of the transition period if you’re switching from a traditional deodorant or antiperspirant.
