The good news is that there are safe and healthy alternatives. Natural deodorants are easy to find, and they don’t contain aluminum chloroyhdrate or aluminum zirconium. In addition to those advantages, they are also easy on the wallet.
One type of natural unscented deodorant is a deodorant stone. These stones are smooth crystals of potassium aluminum sulfate, a naturally occurring form of aluminum salt, not a processed form. To use, simply wet the stone and use like a roll on deodorant. These stones are cheap, easy to use and can be found at a local health store.
Also, if you prefer to feel fresh and smell like it too, there are a wide variety of organic deodorants that are naturally scented. Trader Joe’s, Tom’s of Maine, Burt’s Bees and Dr. Hauschka all sell some type of natural deodorant. Many of the deodorants they sell contain natural herbs for scent, aloe, floral formulas and natural oils.
Instead of potentially risking your health with traditional deodorants, you can simply pick up an alternative deodorant at your local grocery or health store.
