Solve Your Summer Heat Dilemma the Natural Way
Ditching toxic ingredients is something many of us want to consider, but going deodorant-free is a challenge, particularly in hot weather. So a natural deodorant is a good way to minimise odour without plastering your pits with chemicals. They are usually free from aluminium and alcohol, and you'll also find many that don't include parabens, phthalates, and proplylene glycol either. Essential oils are typically included for their antibacterial properties, since it's the mix of moisture and bacteria that creates body odour. Browse our pick of sticks, roll-ons, and sprays here, and read up on how to detox your armpits, plus how our editor got on taking a 30-day antiperspirant detox.
