If you’re like many people, you’re making an effort to clear the toxic products from your life, from the food you eat to the creams you apply to your skin. But, what about your deodorant? Natural deodorant is more than the latest trend; it’s an essential product for a non-toxic life.
We often don’t think about our underarm area (unless, of course, it’s after a workout and we need to pop to the shops to pick something up). And, while we may be eager to swap a toxic skin cream for one that has more natural ingredients, we’re often reluctant to do the same with deodorant. Why? We don’t want to smell.
Why natural deodorants?
For years, natural deodorants had a bad reputation and didn’t quite do the job, especially during a workout or a big, stressful presentation at work. Plus, advertising convinced us we needed antiperspirants to mask not only the smell but also the act of sweating itself. Perspiration is how the body regulates temperature and removes toxins – what’s so bad about that? Recently, studies have linked antiperspirants – specifically, the aluminium compounds that many contain – with health issues. What’s more, even regular deodorant is filled with nasty chemicals that you really don’t want on (or in) your body. These include hormone disruptors, parabens, etc.
Natural deodorants contain plant-based ingredients that absorb moisture and reduce odour. In fact, the ingredients help control the bacteria that are responsible for the odour. Further, many contain moisturisers to soothe and pamper this sensitive and often ignored area of skin. Plus, they don’t clog pores leaving the area less irritated.
We’re excited to feature The Ohm Collection Power and Cream Deodorants! These natural deodorants work hard to keep your underarm area healthy, nourished, and balanced. Each product is easy to apply with the fingertips. Additionally, the cream deodorant quickly absorbs into the skin without any residue.
Both products are sure to keep you dry and smelling of roses (or jasmine or neroli, to name a few). It alkalises odour to keep you drier, longer. Additionally, it contains essential oils that are full of antioxidant and antibacterial benefits. Free of chemical nasties like aluminium compounds, parabens, and more, it’s also cruelty-free and vegan. Your underarms will feel smoother and look healthier!
The Ohm Collection natural deodorant is available in a variety of scents.
If you need a bit more coverage…

Now, if you’re thinking, “That’s brilliant! But I sweat so much, I’ll go through a stick of that a week!” rest assured that a little goes a long way. In fact, one bottle can last up to six months. And, it’s great for both men and women making it perfect for anyone who’s active and on the go!
