I have only tried two products so far which are made from natural ingredients or a mix of natural and safe synthetics but in response to my earlier post about switching to a natural deodorant I had several recommendations from readers so make sure you check those out as well.
This was the product that I first used when I was going through the detox phase. I really enjoyed the subtle smell of this deodorant. It sounds strange but it was great after years of using an antiperspirant to rediscover my natural body scent; the nice smelling one, not the stinky one! The only downside was that I did find I occasionally had to reapply during the day and as this was at the height of my BO paranoia I decided to try a different product on a recommendation from a friend. However, this is my husband’s preferred deodorant which he now uses and it is completely natural.
This is the product that I currently use as I like the solid bar, I don’t need to reapply during the day and it lasts for a long time making it comparable in cost to my previous antiperspirant. I would prefer a more subtle scent and one made with all natural ingredients (this product does contain some safe synthetics) but I am trying not to be too hard on myself – one step at a time and all that.
Ultimately I want to move to a completely natural deodorant that works for me so the next step is to try and make my own – I’ll let you know the outcome…..
