Becoming Cruelty-Free is like falling down a rabbit hole, you start realizing more and more about what’s good for you and how cruel the beauty Industry is to animals. It’s definitely a continuous journey, and I’m learning more about it every day.

Finding out about how toxic deodorant is completely shocked me so here are some reasons why I get Salt Of The Earth Deodorant instead of regular brands like Dove, Sure or Mitchum

– They Contain TOXIC Chemicals!A lot of deodorants contain toxic ingredients that can cause serious health risks and irritate the skin like alcohol, parabens, pesticides (triclosan) and artificial fragrances.

– It’s Safer To EAT Deodorant!

Putting chemicals on your skin may actually be worse than eating it because they enter the bloodstream without a filter! If you eat it the enzymes in your saliva and stomach break down and flush out toxin’s giving you more protection.

– It Doesn’t Stop You Sweating!

You’d think after all those nasty chemicals it would actually stop you sweating but NO! The brands are only required to reduce sweat by 20% in order to say it gives “all day protection” or if they say ” extra strength” they only need to cause 30% reduction in sweat! That’s not a lot.

– There Less Effective Over Time!

As time goes on your body will adapt and start to fight with your deodorant making it less effective.

– Some People Don’t Need Deodorant!

There are some people who don’t even need deodorant as they don’t produce under arm odour but research shows that 75% of these people still wear it, even if they don’t have too. You may be one of these lucky people just go without deodorant for a couple of days and if you find you don’t have people running in the other direction when you walk by your probably fine.

So those are just some of the reasons I tried a more natural deodorant, please do your own research as there a lot more stuff out there and I am not a doctor but onto the review …

I bought the Salt Of The Earth deodorant from Holland And Barret’s for £4 so it’s not expensive it has organic and is free from fragrances, aluminium, alcohol, parabens, chlorohydrate and triclosan. It’s made in the UK and is completely vegan and cruelty-free, you can also buy one with lavender and vanilla at Amazon.

I’m not going to lie and say this will work for everyone because it won’t if you have a particular problem with odour this will not work for you but if you just need something to stop you smelling this is brilliant.

It does feel odd spraying this on your underarms as it’s a spray of water instead of the usual deodorant sprays, it takes about 3 minutes to settle into your skin which can be annoying but it doesn’t give you a white residue on your clothes like most deodorants.

The one BIG drawback to this product is that if you shave you’re under arms in the shower then pop on some deodorant it is LITERALLY like putting SALT on a wound and it KILLS! It stung very badly for at least 5 minutes so please don’t make that mistake.

Overall this is a good product and I have repurchased it twice, I don’t think it would work for people who are extremely sweaty but it will be fine for everyone else and you will be avoiding all the nasty side effects of regular deodorants. Thanks for reading Xxx
