Today, the awareness for natural and organic products is growing, and many people are switching towards using more natural, organic, and less harmful body care products. One of the products we frequently tend to use is deodorants. Everybody is conscious about body odor and using a deodorant helps to keep the underarms smell at bay. There are thousands of different deodorants products out there. However, not all are safe for the skin and body.
Hence, it is very important that you make a distinction between the safe deodorant products and the harmful, chemical ones. Taking a look at the various deodorant reviews, you will get an idea which are the best of the products. These products are more expensive than the regular chemical-based ones, but they are safer to use.
If you for some reason are not able to make or carry a homemade deodorant then you can consider buying an organic one. When looking for best product remember these tips. Always go for products which you can read and understand and products which contain certified natural or organic products. And avoid products which contain ingredients and chemicals like aerosol products, aluminum compounds, synthetic fragrances, antibacterials like triclosan, parabens and petrochemicals like propylene glycol. It is important that you look for deodorant without aluminum, as aluminum-containing deodarants can cause breast cancer and hormonal imbalance. Some of the best deodorants brands are Miessence, Burt's Bees, Dr. Hauschka, Lafe's, and Aubrey Organics.
Here are aluminum-free antiperspirants and deodorants recipes, which you can use to create your very own fragrances.
