When it comes to ditching chemical formulas to greener alternatives, it seems we need a little more convincing to switch our deodorants. Although there is no definitive evidence that regular deodorants or antiperspirants are worse for our health than natural deodorants, they are undoubtedly better for the environment and often our skin too. Here are 13 BO-busting clean formulas that you can rely on for long-lasting odour-free pits.
What’s the difference between a deodorant and an antiperspirant?
Deodorants deodorise, which simply means that they stop you smelling, and antiperspirants stop you from sweating. Nearly all antiperspirants on the market contain an aluminium compound, which works by helping to block your sweat glands.
