Guide to the Benefits of Natural Deodorant

You’ve probably heard the buzz about natural deodorant by now, right? What exactly is it, though, and what are the benefits? We’ve got the inside scoop and we’re here to tell you all about it! 

What is natural deodorant? 

First, let’s talk about what you might find in traditional deodorants and antiperspirants. Common ingredients include aluminum chlorohydrate, aluminum zirconium, and other aluminum- and alcohol-based components that take care of odor-causing bacteria on your skin. How do they eliminate the bacteria? According to Healthline, traditional deodorants turn your skin acidic, which wards off unwanted bacteria. Traditional antiperspirants work to fight off the bacteria by temporarily blocking your sweat glands to prevent sweat from being produced.

On the other hand, natural deodorants are typically composed of (you guessed it) all-natural ingredients like coconut oil, arrowroot powder, and bentonite clay. Rather than aiming to block healthy sweat and bacteria altogether, these natural ingredients work to decrease the bacterial odors once you do start sweating. 

What are the benefits of natural deodorants? 

Like we said before, traditional deodorants and antiperspirants are filled to the brim with chemicals and parabens. Those chemicals and parabens have the potential to really irritate your skin, and they can actually clog up your pores in the long run. If your skin is irritated and your pores are clogged, you run the risk of dealing with issues like pesky ingrown hairs and painful pimples.  

Even though natural deodorants don’t contain the same chemicals that traditional deodorants do, many of them still take care of odors quite efficiently. Additionally, most natural deodorants are more gentle than traditional deodorants, so they’re safer for sensitive skin. One of the main benefits of a natural deodorant is that, since all of the ingredients are natural, you know exactly what you’re putting on your skin. 

Why should you use Farmer’s Body’s natural deodorant? 

Yes, we know. You've probably tried some other natural brands and found that they didn't really work or they were irritating. Ours is different! No more stinky pits by mid-afternoon, no more re-applying halfway through the day and no more itchy red bumps. Our natural deodorant is aluminum- and paraben-free, so it’s perfectly safe for sensitive skin. That’s not all, though. Our deodorant is designed to provide the ultimate odor-fighting protection, and it actually lasts all day long. You may even be able to get away with applying it every other day!
