Finding a deodorant that is non-toxic and actually works seems impossible! There are quite a few options out there but most come with a big price tag or other disadvantages.
Picking a deodorant is like picking a perfume. I don't think there exists one deodorant that is right for every one. It is so individual as to the scent, and texture and how it reacts with the PH of your body.
I will tell you about a few natural, and safe deodorants that have been known to work for many people. Again it is individual as to which works for each person. The only way to know what works for you is to buy it and try it. But always read the reviews first as you can get some good insight and tips about the deodorant you may be thinking to try out.
Agent Nateur deodorant has a clean, mild eucalyptus scent and comes beautifully packaged. Made by hand with all natural ingredients. It goes on clear and doesn't stain your clothes or put any white marks on your clothes. It can be re-applied during the day to continue smelling fresh. Although i don't think this deodorant works if you are sweating heavily, but some say it does. It is priced at $19 but seems to last a while. www.agentnateur.com
Tip: read their how to use page. This deodorant contains Baking Soda which some people can be sensitive to. If you geta rash or other allergic reaction they do offer preventative advice on their "How To Use" page.
Lavilin cream deodorant is a thick white cream you apply at night under clean under arms. In the beginning you may need to apply every day and after a week you should only need to apply once every 3 to 10 days. Its very individual as to how long you can go with out re- applying the deodorant. The newer formula doesn't work for every one but for those that it does work on, it seems miraculous! The thought of not having to put deodorant on every day may make it worth trying at $20 for a little jar. www.lavilin.com
Tips- It doesn't stain your clothes, but it will put white marks on your clothes so it is best to apply at night, as the brand suggests. It comes in scented and non- scented formulas.
Lavilins all natural roll on deodorant does not stop you from sweating. It only stops you from smelling. It is suppose to work up to 72 hours and gets good reviews. Good for men and women. If Lavilin's cream deodorant doesn't work for you then this roll on just might be a good option. It may not work on everyone for 72 hours, but if you can get through the day, I'd say its worth every penny at $16. www.lavilin.com
Aesop spray deodorant is easy to use, just spray under arms and give it a minute to dry before applying clothes. Aluminum free, botanically based with zinc and essential oils. It also comes in a Vetiver scent and makes a great unisex deodorant. Re- applying during the day may be necessary and is individual, but many people feel it works all day even when sweating a lot. If you like a scented deodorant that is all natural, its a good option but with a big price tag at $35. www.aesop.com
