10 best natural deodorants to get you through the heatwave

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.
