Conventional antiperspirants and deodorants often contain concerning ingredients like aluminum, parabens, and triclosan. And there has been mounting research suggesting it’s probably best to limit their usage. An alternative? Our Natural Spray Deodorant, made with ingredients like witch hazel (a natural antimicrobial and astringent) and rosemary hydrosol, offers antifungal properties and a fresh, clean scent.
For Detox Essential Oil Synergy:
What’s the difference between a deodorant and an antiperspirant? Deodorants neutralize odors triggered by the reaction between our sweat and the microorganisms living on our skin, while antiperspirants inhibit the excretion of our sweat glands. When formulated correctly using plant-based antimicrobial molecules, deodorants can have a significant effect in balancing out the ecosystem of our skin’s microflora and reducing unpleasant odors.
