Changeover to natural deodorant – simply to deodorant without aluminium
Natural cosmetics are trendy. More and more people are doing without care products with chemical ingredients. But what has long been accepted and arrived in skin care does not yet fully apply to deodorants.
Many of us still find it difficult to switch from our usual products to natural cosmetics. Many do not dare to switch to natural deodorant for the time being.
The reasons are varied, but two concerns stand out in particular: concerns about poor hygiene and fear of body odor.
With a natural deodorant, the manufacturers do without aluminum, which is almost always present in large quantities in conventional deodorants.
The aluminum prevents sweating and the associated unpleasant odor, but it can be harmful to your health.
Here we reveal how the switch to natural deodorant works without any problems , what needs to be considered and the best tips and tricks for switching to natural products.
Why deodorant without aluminum?
Aluminum in deodorant prevents perspiration. But that has its price. The aluminum causes the pores to contract and the sweat glands to close. Much less sweat escapes naturally, but there is a risk that the pores will become permanently clogged .
In addition, the skin absorbs the aluminum without being able to excrete it afterwards.
The aluminum, which is a toxic substance for us humans, remains in the body. Although in small amounts, even small amounts of aluminum can cause damage in the long term.
Other toxins are also no longer easily removed through the clogged sweat glands. This also damages health in the long run.
Sweating is one of the body's natural forms of regulation and self-cleansing . Glued sweat glands impede this important process.
Natural deodorants do not prevent the natural formation of sweat, but start with the formation of odours.
Natural active ingredients prevent the unpleasant smell of sweat without introducing toxins into the body or preventing the sweat glands from doing their work .
Another plus of natural deodorants: Natural deodorants are environmentally friendly , which cannot be said of products containing aluminum.
Most producers of natural deodorants already pay attention to sustainability and environmental protection during production. It starts with the packaging - many also do without plastic.
The deodorant often comes in a glass bottle or alternative packaging.
How does aluminum-free deodorant work and is it effective?
Instead of blocking the sweat glands, natural deodorants focus on avoiding unpleasant odours.
But how exactly does deodorant without aluminum work?
There are two ways to do this with a natural deodorant.
On the one hand, the smell of sweat is masked by the natural and fresh smell of the natural deodorant, on the other hand , aluminum-free deodorants contain antibacterial ingredients that fight bacteria and neutralize the smell .
Because sweat only smells unpleasant because numerous bacteria form when you sweat. If there is no bacteria formation, sweat no longer smells.
In many deodorants that do not use aluminum , a combination of both is effective. Antibacterial agents that prevent odor formation work together with natural ingredients that neutralize remaining odors and mask them with a fresh scent.
Popular are ingredients from citrus fruits, which have both an antibacterial effect and a pleasant, fresh smell, which is what we want for our personal hygiene.
Natural deodorant is used like conventional deodorant. After washing or showering, the deodorant is applied to the armpits. Depending on the product, the effect lasts about 12 to 48 hours.
Both deodorant sticks and sprays are available. Unlike chemical deodorants with aluminum, however, the natural deodorant sprays usually come in high-quality and environmentally friendly packaging such as glass bottles .
How easy is it to switch to natural deodorant?
Switching to a natural deodorant from a deodorant with aluminum works for most people without much preparation or adjustment , since most natural deodorants are on a par with classic deodorants in terms of protection and odor prevention.
In general, the following also applies: the higher the quality of the natural deodorant and its ingredients, the better the changeover will be .
For beginners, we have a natural deodorant on offer that does not require any transition phase.
After the first application, users feel protected from odors, just like their traditional deodorant. A customer reports:
"The previous skepticism subsided after the first application. A pleasant scent and the fine spray gave me security all day long . And all without aluminum.... great product."
A good deodorant without animal testing - and without aluminum, zinc and parabens .
This is made possible by a composition of antibacterial herbal ingredients and lemon verbena essential oil.
Natural deodorant - Good deodorant without animal testing
Unfortunately, animal testing is still widespread when it comes to chemical cosmetic products. Anyone who refrains from products that have been tested on animals is not only doing something good for themselves, but is also protecting other living beings at the same time.
In most cases, manufacturers of natural deodorants do not test on animals.
Because the products are less aggressive and contain little or no chemical ingredients, safety can be guaranteed without harming animals in advance .
Turning away from outdated practices of the cosmetics industry is also a holistic philosophy. Nature, animals and people should be protected and not burdened .
Feuerstein Essentials embodies this philosophy: Only local ingredients are used for Feuerstein Essentials products, eg Swiss alpine herbs.
The result: a good deodorant without animal testing .
More tips for better hygiene and a safe feeling of hygiene:
- Try to eliminate harsh soaps and shower gels from your hygiene routine. While the effect may seem positive at first glance, chemical products attack the skin's protective acid mantle. Odor formation, not only in the armpit area, is favored in the long term.
- Drink a glass of warm water or tea with a squeeze of lemon every day. This cleanses the body from the inside and provides a boost of vitamin C. However, use the lemon sparingly so that the stomach does not become acidic.
- Even after changing to natural deodorant, you should not do without sport , on the contrary. If the body can sweat out pollutants unhindered than usual (with aluminum deodorant), this has a cleansing effect and is good for you.
Not as difficult as you might think: the simple switch to natural deodorant without aluminum.
