Are you just starting out on your natural body care journey? Have you tried making a switch but don’t know exactly what’s best for you or where to start?
Maybe you’ve tried natural deodorants in the past without much success but are determined to make the switch for good. In this article we’re going to explore natural deodorant options and look at two best natural deodorant options available: Magnesium-based and baking soda-based.
Our original natural deodorants contain baking soda which has potent antibacterial properties that help control bacteria that causes odor when it breaks down and sweating occurs.
When alkaline baking soda is applied to our acidic underarms, a chemical reaction takes place. This may sound alarming, but it’s a normal reaction and is highly effective at controlling odor and bacteria in a natural way.
Our Original Deodorants have been professionally formulated with a healthy skin pH in mind and we don’t rely on baking soda alone to get the job done, however there are a number of people who cannot tolerate even small amount of it, because their sweat is more acidic.
This is where magnesium comes in...
The base of magnesium and zinc ricinoleate (long with activated charcoal in Fresh+Active formula) work together to effectively, yet gently, neutralize body odor.
Magnesium and zinc ricinoleate based deodorants are also a bit gentler to apply, especially in cooler climates and are better for people with more acidic sweat. It all comes down to finding what works with your body.
Even though many encounter no issues, for those affected, the process called detox can bring temporary effects of increased sweating and stronger body odor. During this period, your body begins to purge itself of dead skin cells and other particles that have built up over the years. This can last as little as one week and generally not more than few months.
If you’ve noticed an excessive sweat and stronger body odor we’ve put together a few simple detox tips to help make the transition easier for you. Visit, Underarm Detox: Making A Clean Switch.
