Natural deodorants attract more and more attention of consumers. Many people have learnt already to choose their cosmetics wisely checking ingredients before buying. However, when it comes to picking a deodorant or antiperspirant, we still tend to opt simply for the most effective or, at least, advertised as such. Of course, modern lifestyle requires avoiding unpleasant smell almost at any cost, but as certain ingredients of the most popular deodorants are suspected to be carcinogenic or related to Alzheimer's disease, the cost can result too high.
This is the reason why so many people are searching for all natural deodorants and so many manufacturers market their products under such label. Nevertheless, many natural brands lack a reliable third-party certification of their components while average consumers get lost reading incomprehensible and incomplete ingredient lists. As well, we have to admit that many all natural products are sold due to the simple fact of being absolutely harmless, while just a couple of them actually work.
As the majority of things, different natural deodorants have different pros and cons; different people have different needs and priorities. Usually, we cannot avoid conducting our personal market research before taking an appropriate buying decision. And there is always a risk of being mislead by an unscrupulous advertisement or well masked anti advertisement. Even so, there exist a number of basic guidelines to keep in mind: it is always better to stick with properly certified natural products, avoid strong antibacterial and aluminum compounds and take care of synthetic fragrances, especially if a manufacturer does not disclose any information more then just a word "fragrance". Me personally, I would also recommend to choose items in environment friendly packages that can be easily recycled.
Probably, even after conducting a substantial deodorant market research, due to an unclear labeling or lack of some knowledge you may find yourself confused and unsure of what is really safe and natural. In that case, a good option is to try a couple of easy home made deodorant recipes that you can find on the Web. You can easily buy the ingredients of such deodorants in local stores or purchase them on line; they typically include essential oils, baking soda, starch, beeswax etc. Remind that before applying a deodorant that contain any ingredient that is completely new for you, for example, some essential oil, it is recommended to apply a small quantity of it on a reduced area of skin (avoid visible areas) and wait around 24 hours to check if you have any allergic reaction on it.Natural Deodorants
