Why We're Never Using Antiperspirants Again

Aluminium, the active ingredient in most antiperspirant, is potentially harmful, with studies having raised questions about its link to cancer and Alzheimer's disease. Antiperspirant prevents you from perspiring, just as the name suggests, plugging the sweat ducts. Deodorant, on the other hand, work to mask underarm odour. They often contain a fragrance or perfume, along with an active ingredient called triclosan that is commonly used and works to prevent bacteria from growing, which in turn helps prevent odour.

We've picked the top natural deodorants, are vegan-friendly and made with natural ingredients that won’t block the pores. No nasties mean the skin’s normal and healthy sweating processes continue to function properly, whilst knocking out odour causing bacteria.

Salt of the Earth Unscented Natural Deodorant Spray

Made with just a handful of natural ingredients including moisturising aloe vera, pure water and mineral salts, this offers invisible and long-lasting protection. It is also available in various mouthwatering scents including Melon & Cucumber and Strawberry.

Megababe Rosy Pits Daily Deodorant

Megababe Deodorant - Best natural deodorant

Some beauty products are so good - so coveted - that high demand for them creates a waitlist. Foundations, lip glosses, and the best of the best serums and skincare are examples of products that have created such a hype. Now, it's natural deodorant! And if there's one product that all beauty lovers can get behind, it's a deodorant that works. According to MegaBabe's Rosy Pits reviews, this is the deodorant. The first launch of the product sold out super fast, and the reviews were so good that the second launch brought a 5,000 person wait list. Made with skin-soothing ingredients like green tea, coconut, and vitamin E, as well as sage, sandalwood and horsetail plant, and without necessary nasties like alcohol and baking soda - which can sometimes irritate sensitive skin. The natural deodorant was previously available on J. Crew's UK website before completely selling out - in only eight minutes, according to the brand on Instagram.
