Why we make a 100% Natural Deodorant
Making the Earth Conscious Natural Deodorant was born out of a need to find a natural deodorant that worked effectively against body odour. Over the years, many natural and non-natural products have been tested without great success and this drove us to start making our own. The very first Earth Conscious Natural Deodorant became available in 2014 and since then the basic formula has stayed very much the same. It is proven to work and we just tweak for improvements.
Why the need for a Natural Deodorant in the first place?
Well, we believe that taking responsibility for our own health is something everyone should feel empowered to do. With breast cancer on the rise and the concerns over aluminium in antiperspirants we didn’t want to use such products anymore. It no longer felt comfortable to be preventing our bodies from doing what nature intended. Whether the evidence concerning aluminium is conclusive or not, we would rather not take the risk. Couple that with the fact that we had already started out on a greener living lifestyle ourselves there were other reasons for not wanting to use antiperspirants or indeed non-natural deodorants.
Other parabens and toxic ingredients within these products causing harm not only to our bodies but to the environment at large. The packaging involved that would either not be recycled and end up in landfill not to mention the harm to marine life.
It really went from there.
Natural Deodorant became a natural fit for the Earth Conscious Brand.
We realised that the well being of our planet is indeed connected to the well being of our bodies and we need to look after both. Our Natural Deodorant is not just another product jumping on the green and clean bandwagon it is about functionality and affordability too.
Making the switch to a natural deodorant is an easy step along a greener and healthier lifestyle, one which is affordable and accessible to many.
