Deodorant is one of the main things we look at when we want to start changing our routine towards a more natural one. There are even many people who are not very fond of natural cosmetics but do use a deodorant without aluminum salts.

The issue of sustainability and its increasing importance has led many to try eco-friendly alternatives to their daily hygiene products. For this reason, natural deodorants have started to garner a lot of popularity. A trend that, today, is on everyone’s lips. Some choose them for being greener and more environmentally friendly, but their mental health benefits aren’t talked about as much, or at all really. But they do exist, and I’m going to tell you all about them! Who knows, that might even give you the push you need to go natural!
