It’s Africa hot! If you struggle finding a good natural deodorant that works in this crazy heat, we’ve found ten that really do the job
Natural deodorants are one area where effectiveness matters. Especially in weather like we’re having. Many of us are worried about the implications of putting aluminium based antiperspirants on our skin daily but are afraid of going natural – by the time you’re a sweaty mess on the tube, it’s too late to revert back to what works for you after all. So, rest assured, we have found you ten that work because we tested them.
Green People Quinoa & Prebiotics
Green People new deodorant is completely free from parabens, pore-clogging aluminium and alcohol. Aloe vera and lemongrass make it refreshing and effective odour control. It’s not sticky and the scent is fresh and citrusy and it dries fast too, which is a plus when you’re getting dressed.
Lavera Roll-on with Lime and Verbena
Lavera organic roll-on deodorant offers 24h protection from odours without any white marks. The deodorising ingredients of zinc, cotton extract and rice extract helps keep you fresh all day long. It’s got a clean refreshing fragrance of organic lime and organic verbena and a creamy texture.
Weleda Pomegranate 24h
The Weleda new 24h roll-on deodorant gives you natural freshness from day to night. Easy to apply, it’s free from antiperspirant ingredients, artificial preservatives or parabens. Pomegranate gives the fruity notes and has got nourishing and strong anti-inflammatory properties. Hints of vanilla give the mixture a sensual exotic scent.
Faith in Nature Chamomile & Aloe Vera
Another paraben free deodorant with a natural fragrance of the refreshing aloe vera combined with the gentle scent of chamomile, which is particularly good for sensitive skin helping to avoid itchiness or irritation.
Pure Potion Skin Salvation Lemon Myrtle
This deodorant comes in a mild, hypoallergenic formulation which means that it is also suitable for people suffering from eczema, proriasis and other dry or sensitive skin condition. Lemon myrtle reduces the growth of bacteria and also provides the only scent in this otherwise naturally unfragranced product. It also contains naturally antibacterial, anti-inflammatory ingredients such as hazel and lemon myrtle, which reduces the growth of bacteria and also provides a citrusy scent.
Aurelia Botanical Cream
This planted-based deodorant includes eucalyptus, lavender, peppermint and tea tree. It sits invisibly on your skin ready to absorb your natural perspiration keeping your underarms totally dry throughout the day. Plus, it comes in a beautiful and fined packaging which makes it an indulgence for your beauty care and terribly irresistible to buy. The cream has a slightly dry waxy feel so once massaged into skin it forms a light barrier that’s invisible to sight and touch. A real treat for underarm skin.
The Natural Deodorant Grapefruit+Mint Balm
This deodorant has got a very creamy texture and uses natural ingredients like organic coconut oil and shea butter that highly hydrate and sooth. It’s simple to use and works effectively providing protection all day long. The grapefruit united with the mint gives to the deodorant a fabulous zesty scent. The cream looks a bit sloppy in the jar but once you massage it into skin it’s like a body balm so your arm pits get a lovely moisturising treat.
