Why natural deodorant?
Mass-produced commercial deodorants contain a lot of harmful chemicals.
These chemicals like Triclosan, Parabens, Propylene-Glycol and aluminium have been linked to a bunch of diseases like Alzheimer’s and certain types of cancer.
A little about our deodorants
There are few ingredients in our deodorants.
The fewer, the safer.
The scent comes from the essential oils used.
No Baking Soda
Baking soda is not used in the deodorants.
It has been known to cause a sensitive reaction in the long run.
No Bees’ Wax
Bees wax helps with the hardening of the product and protects the skin but being of animal origin ,we avoid using it.There are other perfectly good natural alternative to harden products and to protect the skin.
Not an anti-perspirant
Our handmade,natural deodorant will not stop you from sweating.
It helps control body odour and some of the ingredients in it protect and nourish the skin.
Take note that your body needs to sweat.
Sweating allows your body to get rid of toxins and to regulate its temperature.

*Some people may experience a little bit of itching when they first try on a natural deodorant. Remember these are not anti-perspirant. Your skin will be moister than usual and feel sticky. Friction may cause irritation. Our deodorants are made with generous amounts of arrowroot powder that can help keep your skin dry by absorbing excess moisture. Also,always ensure your armpits are clean before each application.If irritation is severe, please discontinue use immediately although that is quite unlikely as the ingredients are all absolutely natural and beneficial to skin.
Make the switch to natural. You and your family will be the better for it in the long run.
