Don’t Sweat It
Upscale deodorants have come a long way from the days of talcum powder and Old Spice.
Looking to make the switch from overly-processed and low-quality deodorants but don’t know where to start? Are you sweating just thinking about the harmful ingredients in those run-of-the-mill options you’ve been using all your life? We’ve got you covered. As it turns out, antiperspirants are classified as an over-the-counter drug that stop our bodies from sweating, using primarily aluminum salts, which could be harmful (they plug up the sweat glands and may seep into the skin via nicks from shaving). Luckily, most natural options don’t use aluminum, opting instead for more familiar ingredients like baking soda and wax. They’re also less likely to contain artificial fragrances that have hormone-disrupting phthalates, instead coming up with creative, naturally derived scents. The following deos are not only better for the body and environment, sophisticated, and elegant, they might just have you hooked on green options from here on out.
Holi(stick) Sensitive Deodorant (Vegan)
For those with extra sensitive skin and a freewheeling, joie-de-vivre spirit, this is the deo to save the day. It’s a baking-soda-free formula with woodsy notes of jasmine, bergamot, and sandalwood, plus yummy ingredients like coconut oil, avocado, arrowroot powder, and sunflower. It’s summer day meets spring night, and believe us, your armpits will thank you, as will Mother Nature.
Neroli Portofino Deodorant Stick
Only Tom Ford could capture the essence of the Italian Riviera in a deodorant without breaking a sweat. This couture option for your pits has sharp notes of citrus oils and florals, plus subtle amber undertones for a head-turning scent. Perfect for those who want to smell like they’re always on vacation, or need a boost of self-confidence.
Herbal Deodorant Roll-On
Looking for an alcohol-free, roll-on deodorant that has a blend of essential oils to mask any musk or unpleasant odor, no matter if you’re grocery shopping or running a marathon? We thought so. This is a great pick for those who like a fresh, herbaceous scent (key ingredients include sage leaf and wasabi extract) and a clean, crisp feel that lasts for hours on end. Get ready to have your skin feeling like new.
Appropriate for all skin types, this product uses natural eucalyptus extract and odor-neutralizing citronella to keep your sweet scent lasting all day long without the harmful side effects of over-the-counter products. No aluminum and no alcohol means your skin will be happier, as will your peace of mind. Bonus: eucalyptus’ properties are anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and stimulating. Need we say more?
Sugar Roll-On Deodorant
Fresh’s deo is sans alcohol and enriched with sugar that prevents perspiration, which means you’ll have some pretty delicious-smelling underarms. Along with sugar, there’s also oat kernel to help tone and firm skin, witch hazel, aloe leaf extract, and meadowsweet extract, ingredients made for treating your skin like the marvel it is by both protecting and pampering. Fresh takes smelling like sugar and spice and everything nice to the next level.
