When it comes to beauty buzzwords, no trend seems to be as sought out this year as clean beauty. With a global climate crisis, the rise of holistic care, and the exponentially expanding wellness market, more and more people are looking for ways to incorporate greener and more environmentally conscious beauty routines at home. One major boom in personal care products is the increasing interest and market options surrounding natural deodorants.

The increasing interest around natural deodorants come from a fear of some widespread health reports implying negative long-term health effects from continual use of aluminium-based antiperspirants. While scientific research confirming those beliefs are still in progress, some benefits of switching over to natural deodorant we can count on is: they can be more gentle for sensitive skin, decrease or eliminate discoloration of clothing, and can even help to decrease the amount you sweat overall.
Yet the biggest question on natural deodorants remain: how do we know they work? One of the biggest mishaps of switching over has been the lack of effectiveness from the natural counterparts. Yet, after some years and some trial error, we have tested and approved seven of the best smelling and effective natural deodorants. Read ahead and add to a virtual shopping cart later.
