I was reading the other day articles about the use of conventional deodorants and how they could be all toxic and evil. The role of an anti-perspirant is to clog the pores and that way to prevent (or more likely to reduce) the sweat. This is done by the help of aluminum. The drawback to that? - It blocks the purge of toxins and they remain in our body
Therefore, ever more people are searching for aluminum free deodorants that would be as effective as the conventional once. In my opinion this is hardly possible since the natural product could not fight with the sweat, it only neutralizes the smell from the bacteria which was produced by it.
Nevertheless, being the hypochondriac I am, I decided to risk beauty in the name of my health!
I was looking for non-commercial, aluminum free deodorant and I was pleased to find one by Yves Rocher at Debenhams store. This deodorant is with more natural ingredients, like extract from almond and aloe vera, the formula is gentle to the skin, it is free of alcohol, aluminum salts, parabens and is vegan friendly because it does not contain any animal ingredients in it.
I love the smell of it because it is fresh and sweet at the same time, you can definitely feel the almonds in there...yummy! It doesn't take much time to absorb, just apply it on your skin, wait a few seconds and you are ready to put your clothes on. For the record: I am testing this deodorant during winter time, when the temperature is below zero and I rarely sweat for this reason, but I made everything possible to receive real results here. I walked all day by foot doing shopping and I used the public transport to get back home. The heat in the bus was enormous and I was smashed between other people in my big chunky sweater and my coat on. This product I must say passed the test. I do not know how Yves Rocher did it, but they made a great aluminum free deodorant which is with long lasting scent (even longer than my conventional one) and I do not feel sweaty after the busy day! This surprised me a lot and I am aluminum-free convert.
I recommend this product to anyone who is looking for more natural deodorant and I would be happy to hear your impressions on it :)
