Deodorant Do's & Don'ts
Cut the clutter from your ingredient label
When it comes to deodorant, getting the results you need and how you can achieve them is key. If you’re looking to make your underarm health a priority with natural deodorant, here’s some simple reminders on cutting out the clutter from the ingredient label.
DO: Baking Soda + Magnesium
Look for these natural, mineral-derived ingredients to aid in neutralizing acidic odor-causing bacteria.
DO: Arrowroot Powder
Created from the stems of tropical plants, plant-based powders—like arrowroot—can help absorb wetness, leaving you feeling drier without the use of aluminum.
DO: Cocoa + Shea Butter
These smooth operators are extracted from naturally-grown plants. Their combined power will help moisturize and soften your skin.
DO: Natural Fragrance
That sweet smell you enjoy every time you open a natural deodorant, like Schmidt's Naturals? That’s the distilled essence of plant-derived materials.
Most antiperspirants use aluminum to prevent certain glands from producing sweat. This is typically a temporary fix, and one that prevents your body's healthy process of perspiring.
DON'T: Propylene glycol
This chemical, sometimes derived from petrochemicals, is often referred to as an irritant and neurotoxin.
If the FDA has banned the use of this chemical in soaps, why include it in your deodorant?
DON'T: Artificial Fragrance
Many fragrances in conventional products can be produced artificially and are often derived from animal sources or petrochemicals. And, that stinks.
The Natural should not be considered medical advice. If you have any questions about your health, please consult a physician.
