Top 5 Natural Deodorants
Even if you don’t have bad body odor, chances are that you’re applying an underarm deodorant in an attempt to leave you fresh and approachable. Interestingly, how many of us actually take the time to review the ingredients in ourÂ deodorant, or even know if it is safe?
IfÂ you’re concerned that your underarm deodorantÂ may increase your risk of cancer or other health issues, why not choose a product thatÂ doesÂ not contain these chemicals.Â
Here areÂ some of theÂ bestÂ organic deodorants available that really doÂ absorb wetness and willÂ leave you smelling fresh.
Weleda’s deodorant sprays (rose, citrus and sage) are third-party certified by various organizations including BDIH, NaTrue and Demeter, and the company is a signer of the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics Pact.
WeledaÂ Wild RoseÂ is a “natural antibacterial” and it appears to beÂ the most effective of the three Weleda deodorant productsÂ available for those hot and sweaty days. So it’s not cheap ($15), but you get more for yourÂ dollar compared to other so-called natural high-endÂ deodorants.Â
If you have $23 in your pocket, Dr. Hauschka is theÂ King of natural deodorant. It’s third party-certified (by BDIH), comes in two options, Floral and Fresh, with the latterÂ smelling and working great on men. The ingredients are as organicÂ as can be, and it’sÂ very effective compared to other so-called natural deodorants. And yes people, even Martha Stewart swears by it.Â Â
Lafe’s Organic Baby Mother To Be Deodorant Spray ($7.99) is so organic and clear of any harmful ingredients, the Environmental Working Group gives it a zero hazard rating. It only contains purified water, organic aloe vera extract and mineral salts. For those interested in other products by this company, Lafe’s offers other choices including hemp sticks and five varieties of roll-ons. One side note: although the company has signed the Compact for Safe Cosmetics, they’re currently considered “non-compliant” because they haven’t yet fully listed all of their ingredients on product labels.
