Sweating is a good thing, and contrary to popular belief, sweat itself doesn’t actually smell. Our skin is designed with an inbuilt cooling system and sweating is an integral part of maintaining an even body temperature. But when bacteria on our skin breaks down sweat, it causes body odour. Regular antiperspirants work by using chemicals such as aluminium to block pores, preventing sweating entirely. On the other hand, non-natural deodorants use harsh fragrances and antibacterial agents to kill off bacteria on skin and neutralise odour. Either way, both choices can disrupt the skins natural microbiome and processes.
At HealthPost, our range of natural deodorants are free from aluminium, synthetic fragrances and other harsh chemicals that are potentially harmful. Better yet, they’re cruelty free too. Using natural ingredients such as coconut oil, shea butter, and essential oils, our range of deodorants will keep you fresh while nourishing your skin too. Available in pastes, roll ons, sprays and sticks, there’s an option to suit everybody. So go on, go “au natural” knowing that you’re making a better choice for you and your underarms.
