So, you’ve decided to switch to a natural deodorant. But where do you start? Right here!
If you’re used to drugstore deo brands, we admit: our deodorants may look a little funky. But have no fear—these tips will help you choose the perfect Lush deodorant for you.
First things first: our deodorants are just that—deodorants. They don’t contain aluminum, won’t stop you from sweating, but they will keep you smelling fresh. We’ve used gentle powders and fragrant essential oils that absorb excess moisture while keeping you smelling like you’re fresh from the shower.
There are a few things to consider when choosing a deodorant: what type of deo are you using now? When and how will you use your deodorant? How much do you perspire in a typical day?
If you’re switching to natural deodorant from an antiperspirant or roll-on deodorant for the first time, Aromaco is a great place to start. This solid bar has a creamy texture, just like a conventional solid deodorant stick, except it’s completely packaging-free! Simply pop your bar into an airtight container like one of our reusable tins to keep it fresh. A gentle blend of absorbent baking soda, astringent witch hazel infusion and fragrant patchouli oil keeps things fresh with a subtle earthy scent. Check out the reviews for Aromaco—fans love that it keeps them smelling fab even in the Texas heat!
T'eo is another deodorant in a familiar bar shape. It’s also solid and packaging-free, but has a drier, more powdery texture than Aromaco so will be slightly more absorbent. It’s made with odor neutralizing baking soda and a refreshing blend of tea tree, lemon and juniper berry oils to keep ‘pits fresh and dry. T’eo (and Aromaco) are ideal travel partners since they’re solid and won’t melt or spill. Simply put it in a reusable container and toss it in your carry-on for hassle-free trips.
We’re leaving solid deos behind and entering powder territory. Why would you choose a powder deodorant, you ask? They’re super absorbent, making them a good option for those who are more active, live in warm climates, or are simply naturally sweatier! Plus, they’re a cinch to use.
The Greeench is an herbal blend of tea tree oil, sage, rosemary and thyme in an absorbent base of baking soda and lycopodium powder. To use this powder deodorant, simply sprinkle a little into your hand, then pat onto underarms. Like all of our powder delights, it comes in a recycled and recyclable plastic bottle that’s easy to pop in a gym bag for a quick refresher anywhere.
Sometimes, it’s not just our ‘pits that need a little freshening up. T for Toes, for example, is a seriously deodorizing foot powder that soaks up moisture with ultra-absorbent kaolin, horsetail herb and walnut leaf powders. Powerful tea tree and lime essential oils keep them feeling (and, let’s face it, smelling) fresh too. Spill a little of this T into your shoes and you’re good to go.
