As the love for a more natural approach to beauty and health is rising, it seems more women are questioning what is in the products they put on their bodies, and, deodorants are clearly no exception. Traditional deodorants actually stop the natural way in which the body releases toxins and regulates temperature which is through perspiration. So, in order to still care for your body and provide you with that fresh and clean feeling, natural deodorants have came up with recipes that do the trick.
But, most all-natural products are met with the presumption of not being the most effective. So, we’ve tried and tested the best natural deodorants available today – from the affordable to the higher priced – to see which really do work and if they’re worth the purchase.
A rare formula for natural deodorants exists in this product by Neal’s Yard. As most are roll-ons, this lemon and coriander spray deodorant offers a splash of freshness in consistency too. It combines eight pure essential oils, to give you a gentle and effective way to face the day with confidence and lasting freshness. And, the zesty blend of lemon and coriander naturally cleanses bacteria.
Nala Care, Detox: Peppermint & Activated Charcoal, £19
Feeling the love via @samclementemode: “Revue de beauté 〰️ Beauty review I’m always on the hunt for natural + green beauty products, especially deodorants. I found this brand on Instagram a few months ago + instantly fell in love with their message. Once I had some money aside I decided to make a purchase, because I knew that $26 for a deodorant is a bit of a splurge. I’m SO impressed and love how long it lasts! The scents are subtle, but beautiful and I’m truly a fan. 〰️ […] I could see the love that was put into that package and I am so appreciative. Moral of the story, support small businesses. 👏🏽” #grateful #supportsmallbusiness #beautyreview

Dr Hauschka Sage Deodorant, £13
Dr. Hauschka is a brand that understands the importance of perspiration stating that: ‘[…]perspiration is of vital importance. It not only regulates our body temperature but also removes impurities and forms the acid mantle as a barrier on the surface of the skin to protect against harmful germs.’ Their Sage Deodorant therefore supports what your body needs by combining a beautiful combination of sage and mint for long-lasting and healthy freshness.
Today’s #KopariQuestion is… how do I make the switch from regular deo to natural deo?! See below… . ✨ How to Survive the Antiperspirant Detox ✨ . Exfoliate your pits – Since commercial antiperspirant deodorants leave a sticky chemical residue on the skin, start by exfoliating with Coconut Crush Scrub to buff away dead skin cells and residue. . Pit mask – Clay masks that contain bentonite or kaolin are known to be super detoxifying and can also be used in the armpit area for the same effect. . Sweat it out – Working out, steam rooms or dry saunas will really help you sweat out all those toxins and speed up the process. . Drink water – Drinking water will stimulate the lymphatic system and this will help flush your body and detox even quicker. . Wipe, then swipe – You may want to keep some baby wipes handy to freshen up those pretty little pits through the day during the detox process. Then simply re-apply Coconut Deodorant. . Although the switch from an antiperspirant to a natural deodorant may seem intimidating, we promise your bod will thank you! Think about it: you get to purge your pits of years of toxins, help get your underarms function how they should, AND smell like sweet coconut milk while you’re at it. Sounds like a win-win (& win). . So now that you know, empower your pits and make the natural switch. Glide on and go get em girl! 😘
This deodorant is paraben-free; sulfate-free; phthalate-free; gluten-free; silicone-free; GMO-free and aluminium-free. Making it an even better choice, it is also not tested on animals and made in the USA. If you’re in the UK, Kopari thankfully ships to you too so you don’t miss out on the unique blend of sage oil, (which helps aid in sweat- and oder-reduction) and coconut oil (which repairs skin and moisturises).
