Earth Conscious Natural Deodorant
Why use Earth Conscious Natural Deodorant?
Our natural deodorant contains no parabens, no aluminium, just simple natural ingredients. Whatever you apply to your skin can seep through into your bloodstream. For an example of this in action think of nicotine patches. Therefore, it is well worth thinking about the ingredients of the products that you are placing on your skin, in the same way that you already think about the foods that you eat. Not only is our natural deodorant better for your own health it also better for the planet. None of the ingredients will harm marine life when washed away. All of our packaging is recyclable and we use no plastic.
What is in the Earth Conscious Natural Deodorant?
Earth Conscious Natural Deodorant is made from natural ingredients. There are no parabens or aluminium to worry about.
Is the Earth Conscious Natural Deodorant Organic?
We use high quality organic ingredients wherever possible which is pretty much every ingredient. Sodium Bicarbonate, however, is a naturally forming salt and is impossible to be classified as organic. The organic ingredients we source are generally Soil Association certified organic ingredients.
Are the Scents Strong?
Our deodorant scents are subtle. We use natural essential oils to fragrance at low, safe levels. We do not believe in using lab made copies of components of essential oils and calling them natural to get an overpowering smell. Ours are the real thing. Which is also nice as you get the physical benefits too, such as the calming lavender or uplifting peppermint.
Is the Earth Conscious Natural Deodorant safe to use during Pregnancy
The essential oils in all the scents are under 1% composition of the total product. Our safety testing prescribes it is safe for pregnant woman. However we do have an unscented if you were really unsure and of course always seek medical advice if you have any concerns.
How Do I Apply My Deodorant? Is it Messy?
The deodorant is in a cream paste form. The easiest way to apply it is to scoop a small amount up with your fingers and rub it in under your arms. If you have any residue on your fingertips it also makes a great handcream so just rub it in or rinse it off. No mess. Applying deodorant to your pits with your fingers may feel unusual at first, but it’s just your armpits and we would encourage everyone to get more in touch with their bodies.
Is the Earth Conscious Natural Deodorant Suitable for Children?
Yes! It is, in our opinion, the best most organic and natural deodorant you can give to a girl or boy hitting puberty or as a deodorant for a teenager. At that crucial time in development we really don’t like the idea of our own children using deodorant, or any product containing known hormone disruptors like some of the known brands do (see the Environmental Working Groups database(LINK IS http://www.ewg.org/skindeep/) for more information on toxins in deodorants and cosmetics.
Why is it in a Tin?
Our natural deodorant comes in a neat aluminium tin. It is easy to carry around in your bag with a secure screw top lid. The tins that we use have been treated with a food safe lacquer which conforms to EU standards, eliminating any potential problems of aluminium traces being in the product. Our tins are UK bought and are chosen for their lightweight and easily transportable nature, again reducing the environmental impact of the product.
Why has the Texture of my Product Changed?
Earth Conscious Natural Deodorant is made with 100% Natural Ingredients to ensure a healthy product for your body and for our environment. It is handmade. A result of this is that the texture is not always the same, some pots will feel a little different to others and your own pot may change slightly depending on what’s going on with the weather. Coconut oil is a main ingredient which is notorious for changing it’s form in warmer and colder weather. You may notice that when it’s cold you need to scoop some out and warm your deodorant slightly with your fingers before applying to your underarms. All part of going natural and ditching those clinically made ingredients with names we do not recognise.
How Much Should I Use?
A small amount gathered on your fingertips is usually enough to cover your underarm area. If you find that the deodorant is not as effective for you as it should be then try making your scoop larger and applying more each morning. Our natural deodorant works by being an anti bacterial formula so it’s very personal as to the amount that is needed and some days you may need more than others depending on what else is going on in your body.
The armpits are a very delicate area, particularly if you shave. Our deodorant contains only natural ingredients but that doesn’t guarantee that your skin won’t react to them. We have very few reported cases of any reaction but some people report being sensitive to sodium bicarbonate and some with sessential oils. Often a reaction can simply be related to the ph levels of your skin which can change at any time with diet and other factors within your body. If you find that you do have a reaction to your Earth Conscious Natural Deodorant we recommend applying apple cider vinegar to the area and to stop using your deodorant for a time until your skin has returned to normal.
Earth Conscious Natural Baby BalmWhy use Earth Conscious Natural Baby Balm?
Our natural baby balm is completey natural and gentle on skin and can be used to help nappy rash. All the ingredients work towards keeping skin soft and moisturised. Additionally, none of the ingredients will harm marine life when washed away. All of our packaging is recyclable and we use no plastic.
