Natural Deodorants and Work Outs
It’s one thing to use a Natural Deodorant for everyday use but do they work during and after a vigorous workout?
We have put our natural deodorant to the test on many occasions where extra sweating takes place. Working up a sweat cycling, running, at the gym, dancing and yoga classes to name but a few and our Earth Conscious deodorant has kept us stink free the whole time. Why?
The Earth Conscious Natural Deodorant is not an antiperspirant so the focus isn’t on stopping you sweating, the focus is on the ingredients and how they prevent body odour without harming your body or the environment.
It doesn’t matter how much you workout, the ingredients in our natural deodorant are designed to deodorise and that is exactly what they do.
Coconut Oil is one of the main ingredients in our natural deodorant. It is naturally antibacterial and anti-fungal. Sodium Bicarbonate is an active ingredient in odour control and Arrowroot Powder naturally absorbs moisture. These three ingredients work actively together to keep body odour at bay without stopping the natural bodily process of sweating.
Let us be clear, antiperspirants work by blocking pores which we do not believe to be a healthy thing to do. Sweating is a natural bodily process and we have no intention of preventing that process during a workout or otherwise!
It is the creation of bacteria that causes Body Odour but by using a natural deodorant with the right ingredients your body will find a natural balance without the need of an antiperspirant.
It is worth pointing out that sometimes there is an adjustment period between making the switch from an antiperspirant (that has been blocking your sweat glands) to a natural deodorant. It doesn’t take long before your body enjoys the fact that you are no longer applying harmful toxins to your skin and you will find a balance with using a natural deodorant instead.
