Natural Deodorants

I have always used Nivea deodorants and I was happy with them but a few months ago my skin got quite itchy. I thought this was weird but after reading a clean beauty post on Table Tonic, one of my favourite blogs, a lightbulb-moment happened and I realised that the deodorant was making my skin feel unhappy. I therefore went on a mission to find some clean deodorants that would work for me.
Natural Instinct natural deodorant, MooGoo Fresh
Cream Deodorant & Natio Roll-On Deodorant
The natural deodorant from Natural Instinct did nothing for me. It smells like saltwater and it was weird spritzing it on because I have always been a roll-on girl. At least it was only $5 from Priceline which is why I bought it in the first place. 

When it comes to MooGoo I am a convert, the deodorant is so soft and it really is like a cream. I always let it dry at least 10 minutes before putting on a shirt because otherwise it can leave marks. The ingredients include Demineralized Water, Magnesium, Hydroxide, Corn Starch, Xantha Gum, Witch Hazel, Organic Lemon Myrtle. It also says that the Fresh Cream Deodorant is so healthy you can drink it. I haven't been brave enough to do so but I like the idea that it is that natural. I bought the deodorant from my local pharmacy but if you have time you can also check out their website as well where you can shop directly. It costs $8.45 for a 60ml deodorant.

The Natio deodorant is not fully natural but it is aliminium-free and has ingredients such as Lavender, Rosemary, Clary-Sage and Lemon. It smells nice and is see-through so I use it for the mornings I have 5 minutes to get ready before work. It costs $8 for 100 ml.

I can say with my hand on my heart that the Natio and Moo Goo deodorants have changed my life and I have not itched since I started using them. I also fully believe that what we put on our body is just as important as what we eat and drink. You should be reading beauty labels just as thoroughly as food labels. 

What's your experience with natural products? Has your body ever made you change your beauty habits?

  1. So does this mean you use the two deodorants?
    I totally agree about checking out the products we use - I think you may have converted me. I'm not sure which to go for, but next time I purchase deodorant, I'm going to be reading the labels (something I've NEVER done with this daily product!)
    Thank you Ingrid.

  2. Hey Alison, yes I do use both Natio and MooGoo and can recommend them very much. I also have a natural body wash from Burt's Bees which is also very nice and good for the body. I never used to read their labels either so good luck on the clean journey:) x
