2009/10 Green Beauty Bible Winner! 2010 Natural Health Beauty Awards - Highly Commended Yes we've found it - a natural deodorant that really works! The recognition this range has received is well deserved. This award winning deodorant is refreshing and active with anti-bacterial properties, effectively neutralising BO. It isn't an anti-perspirant. The great thing about natural deodorants is that they don't contain pore-clogging Aluminium, Parabens, ethyl alcohol and artificial fragrances - particularly good if you're experiencing increased sensitivity at the moment. I'll confess here that I've been an 'aerosol girl' for years! It's taken a little time to adapt, you'll need to give it about a 2 week trial period for your skin to adjust to this new way of balancing the bacteria naturally found on your skin. It is super gentle on the skin, and lasts all day and is suitable for people prone to eczema and psoriasis. It is worth reading up a bit on the science here, if like me, you've never read a aerosol can label. There are two main concerns over the use of aluminium salts in deodorants and antiperspirants. The first concern relates to the use of Aluminium chloride, Aluminium chlorohydrate. These salts have the property of preventing the natural and essential function of perspiration by blocking and plugging sweat ducts and pores. The second concern relates to the possibility that the aluminium contained in these salts may be absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream and might have toxic effects within the body. None of the above are present in this range of deodorants. Alunite is and this is a naturally occurring earth mineral which does contain a small percentage of aluminium as part of its molecule. However, this natural form can't penetrate the skin and enter the bloodstream. Instead, it remains on the surface of the skin where it inhibits the reproduction of bacteria, the main cause of BO. Voila!-now we're all clear about that.
