What are the best natural deodorants?
Body odour is a smelly subject and not one many of us want to openly discuss. We try to cover up this unpleasant aspect of our humanity with deodorants but conventional deodorants, especially antiperspirant ones, can cause more harm than good in the long term (read about the importance of sweating here and on detoxing armpits here). Natural deodorants are your best bet and it may take some trial and error to find one that fits your needs. This may just be your lucky for you as today we are highlighting a range of deodorants by Acure®.
Acure® has 4 amazing deodorants that are easy-to-use and readily absorbed. 100% vegan and made only with organic ingredients, they contains coconut oil, candelilla wax, Shea butter, sodium bicarbonate and vitamin E. These are all amazing ingredients with emollient, moisturising, detoxing, and antioxidant properties to name a few.
Coconut oil really needs no introduction. With its wonderful tropical fragrance, it has been a staple in natural beauty care products for ages. Lightweight and deeply moisturising, it is rich in fatty acids, Lauric acids, and proteins to provide intense hydration, replenishment, and nourishment to your skin. It has anti-inflammatory properties as well making it soothing for sensitive underarm skin.
Candelilla wax is an awesome vegan alternative to beeswax. It has amazing properties including the ability to restore and repair skin. It is easily absorbed and forms a barrier on skin to retain moisture resulting in softer and well hydrated skin. Odourless, it is the perfect ingredient in deodorants for its thickening and emulsifying properties.
Shea butter is another astounding moisturiser. It’s rich content of essential fatty acids gives it excellent emollient properties while the vitamin E content helps heal skin resulting in an improvement in skin elasticity, boost in collagen production, and increased skin cell regeneration with a decrease in the damage caused by free radicals.
Sodium bicarbonate has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties which help soothe skin inflammations and redness. It works to soften skin while neutralising odours by balancing pH levels. It kills harmful bacteria which also cause smelly pits and odours. We have taken a closer look at sodium bicarbonate earlier so be sure to read up on it here.
For those sensitive to fragrances, Acure® has the Fragrance Free Deodorant. The others are in a variety of wonderful fragrances – Lavender & Coconut Deodorant, Cedarwood & Mint Deodorant, and the Lemon Verbena Deodorant. With the potent properties of popular essential oils, they are a great option for anyone interested in natural deodorants.
