Why we chose to add our own natural deodorant to the ecobrite range

Why you should switch to a natural deodorant?

At Ecobrite, we are committed to making products that are both good for the planet and good for you.  That is why we wanted to create a natural alternative to traditional deodorants.

 

We are a small family business that cares about you, so we did some research, and this is what we discovered.

 

What is in traditional deodorants and why are they bad?

The deodorants that you find in supermarkets contain lots of different chemicals.  Some of them are ok and some of them are definitely not ok.

 

One of the scariest ingredients is aluminium.  Aluminium has been linked to an increased risk of some cancers and Alzheimer’s disease.

 

When you use deodorants, you are applying these chemicals directly onto your skin and the armpits contain glands which absorb them.

 

Aluminium also blocks sweat the sweat glands.  The idea is that this stops you from sweating and is, therefore, a key ingredient in antiperspirants.  But sweating is good.  It flushes toxins from the body and helps regulate body temperature.

 

How are our natural deodorants different?

First up, they don’t contain these chemicals.  They contain ingredients that you recognise that we know work to keep you smelling sweet.

 

They don’t block sweat glands.  These aren’t antiperspirants.  You will still sweat but you won’t get the bad smells.  We have two fragrances to choose from too: Bergamot & Lavender and Tea Tree & Peppermint.

 

We include cocoa butter to keep your skin soft and sweet almond oil to protect you from UV rays.  Magnesium hydroxide is the active ingredient in dealing with odour and you can choose either the bicarb-free or bicarb-containing options.

 

In addition to this, our deodorants are zero-plastic and vegan, so that you can feel confident that you are doing the right thing for you and the planet.

 

Are you convinced yet?

We love our natural deodorants.  They are safer for you, eco-friendly and smell fantastic.  Give them a try today and find out for yourself.
