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.

Deoodorant Do's

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.

Deodorant Don'ts

DON'T: Aluminum-based 

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.

DON'T: Triclosan 

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.
