Let’s Fall In Love With Natural Deodorants

Congratulations! If you’re reading this article, it means you’re already considering switching to a natural deodorant, or at least you’re intrigued by them and want to find out more.

Getting yourself well informed is key, so good on you for reading up! So what’s the hype around going all-natural? And is it just hype or the real thing?

Here is our take on the topic:

Safe Ingredients Icon

#1 Safe Ingredients.

Have you ever tried to read the labels on conventional deodorants and antiperspirants? Is it just us, or do most of the ingredients have never-ending names that sound and look kind of scary? And if you can hardly pronounce their names, should you trust them on your skin? Many of the synthetic ingredients used in conventional cosmetics may be approved, but still little is known about their long-term side effects. Often we only find out about these later, when it might be too late. Since skin is our biggest organ and has such a high absorption capacity, it makes sense to try and use natural and organic products as much as possible. Natural deodorants are made up of ingredients that you are already familiar with, that are not only easy to read on a label, but also safe and nourishing for your skin and help maintain your body’s optimum health!

Sweat it out!

#2 Sweat It Out.

For too long, we’ve been taught that sweat is bad and embarrassing, when this is actually not the case. Sweat is one of the most normal and important bodily functions and should not be inhibited. Unlike common belief, bad odor is not caused by sweat, but by naturally occurring bacteria living on the surface of your skin. Most conventional deodorants and antiperspirants use synthetic aluminum compounds that clog your sweat ducts, ultimately causing an imbalance in your body. On the other hand, natural deodorants create an environment on the skin to help reduce the amount of bacteria responsible for body odor – without influencing the body’s natural functions or making your armpits unhappy.

Skin Friendly Ingredients

#3 Simply skin-friendly.

Natural ingredients cause less irritation and are less likely to be allergens, which may have been problems for you in the past. If you have a tiny cut or irritation on skin (such as from shaving), or your skin is extra sensitive to chemical components your natural deodorant will keep your skin smooth, protected and happier all round!

Earth Friendly Ingredients

#4 Love For Planet Earth.

Most of the time, the chemical ingredients in conventional deodorants are generated through processes that negatively impact the environment. For example, some of them are by-products of industrial meat production or the mineral oil industry, which are so harmful for the earth. When washing off your body, antibacterial chemicals like triclosan go down the drain and into the waterways, posing a threat to some aquatic organisms. Plus, conventional spray-on deodorants or antiperspirants release chemicals into the air that contribute to pollution. By choosing a deodorant that uses purely plant-based ingredients, you’ll be taking an important step towards reducing your overall ecological footprint. And helping show your love for Planet Earth.

Happy Animal

#5 Animals Will Thank You.

Unfortunately, we live in a world where product testing on animals is still allowed and common in the cosmetics industry. Tests are run to assess skin or eye irritation or to identify other side effects, even though results are not always reliable or applicable to humans. As a result, animals are suffering unnecessarily in labs. Since natural deodorants contain ingredients safe enough to eat, then there is no need to test them on animals.


Try it!

We have a 30-day money back guarantee for all the newbies out there, so we can’t really think of a good reason not to give a natural deodorant a go. As well as being all of the above, Bali Secrets natural deodorant is organic, vegan and gluten-free. Basically, you can spread it on toast and have it for breakfast. Kidding, just testing your attention, please don’t do that! But it truly is amazing, according to our customers.

Just give it a try and see how it works for you.
