You’ve been thinking of making the switch to natural deodorant. There’s that article you read about how the aluminum in your go-to brand is linked to cancer, there’s that rash you sometimes get after you apply, the “fresh” scent that isn’t from nature, the streaks and stains it leaves on your shirt, and that nagging feeling whatever it is you are using now might be keeping sweat and odor at bay, but it really isn’t good for you. You find yourself standing in the cosmetic section of your local health foods store, or googling “the best natural deodorant”. There seems to be dozens of options and you don’t know if any of them actually work. You are overwhelmed by the pastes, sprays, roll-ons. What makes a good natural deodorant? How do they work? Which one should you be using?
Are All “Natural” Deodorants Paraben And Aluminum-Free ?
Not all “Natural” Deodorants are created equal. Some still have parabens although most do not have Aluminum. It then took evidence from the medical community that deodorants were toxic for consumers to demand cleaner, more natural products.
The parabens and aluminum found in conventional deodorant are definitely something to be concerned about. The compounds used in these deodorants to block the sweat ducts have been found to mimic estrogen, which promotes growth of breast cancer cells. Switching to a natural formula is a healthy decision. Natural deodorants use a variety of safe ingredients to combat sweat and odor, some more effectively than others.
Benedetta’s founder, Julia Faller originally formulated the 100% botanical The “Best” Deodorant in 2001 in response to a report that women in Marin County, California were being diagnosed with breast cancer at a staggering 40% more than the national average. Filling a need that had not been met, Benedetta’s signature The “Best” Deodorant is composed entirely of Organic & Biodynamic Farm-Sourced® ingredients, 92-94% of them grown and processed in California. Our unique and purely authentic formula specifically targets the bacteria that causes odor; created holistically to allow the body to come into balance safely and effectively.
Gentle On Your Body… Gentle On Your Skin
If you have sensitive skin you have probably had a reaction to your conventional deodorant at some point. Parabens, chemical fillers, and artificial fragrances and preservatives can easily irritate the delicate skin in your armpit, leading to rashes and a variety of allergic reactions. If you have very sensitive skin always wait a few minutes after shaving and allow your armpit area to dry completely before applying deodorant. Alcohol, even plant alcohol can sometimes sting a little on freshly shaven skin. A couple of spritzes of The “Best” Deodorant dries quickly, leaving only the enlivening botanical aroma of the active ingredients. How’s that for natural?
The “Best” Deodorant Won’t Leave Streaks And Stains On Your Clothes
The ingredients in The “Best” Deodorant leave no white chalky residue on your clothes, your little black dress will thank you. Our formula will also prevent the yellowing and discoloration that can occur on the inside of your shirt sleeves from using conventional deodorants. See what our customers are saying about their experience with our botanical deodorant here: The "Best" Deodorant and here: Benedetta Customer Reviews. Once you make the switch to our botanical deodorant you’ll be a fan for life.
Please Note: Although the aroma in The “Best” Deodorant is not a fragrance but a synergy of precise active ingredients, (as with all Benedetta preparations), those with high sensitivity to essential oils may need a period of adjustment. As well as those that have used conventional deodorants. Please contact us for more information.
