Natural Deodorant Balms vs. Antiperspirants

Natural Deodorant Balms vs. Antiperspirants
It's the great deodorant debate of our time: natural deodorant balms vs. antiperspirants. Both have their pros and cons, but which one is really better? Let's take a closer look.

The Case for Natural Deodorant Balms

Natural deodorant balms are usually made with 100% natural ingredients like coconut oil, cocoa butter, and candelilla wax, which help to soothe and protect the skin. They're also free of aluminium, parabens, and other harsh chemicals that can be found in some antiperspirants. Many people find that natural deodorant balms are gentle on the skin and don't cause irritation like some antiperspirants can.

The natural deodorant balms, work by attacking the bacteria and stopping the odour smell. so they don't actually stop you from sweating, and when you first switch from a conventional antiperspirant many people find they sweat a lot more. But the natural ingredients then stop any sweat turning into bacteria and making any unpleasant smells.

How Antiperspirants actually work

Antiperspirants work by blocking sweat glands to prevent sweating. They usually contain aluminium as the active ingredient, which is why they're so effective at preventing sweat. Aluminium has been linked to health concerns in some people, and can cause health problems. Antiperspirants are also usually more effective at preventing sweat than natural deodorant balms. Often antiperspirants are in an aerosol can, which can also be very harmful to the environment.

So, which is better? Natural deodorant balms or antiperspirants? The answer is that it depends on your individual needs and preferences. If you're looking for a gentle product that's free of harsh chemicals, natural deodorant balm will be the right choice for you. If you're looking for a product that's more effective at preventing sweat, but possibly harming you with aluminium, then antiperspirant might be the better option. Ultimately, it's up to you to decide what's best for your own body!
