In the celebration of Earth Day, I would like to encourage you to make changes (even small) in your beauty routines that can help our planet. For me, this kind of recent change was switching to a natural deodorant and this blog post is about my experience with it – enjoy!
A natural deodorant has always sounded like a good idea to me. I knew it would be better not only for me and my body but also for our planet. Antiperspirants are linked to many health-related issues, they also damage the ozone layer, pollute the air and their packaging harms the environment. Even though I knew about all of these negative effects antiperspirants have, the thought of making the switch was intimidating since I had no idea what to expect. Finally the universe gave me a sign that it is the time for a change – I was gifted this Aesop Herbal Deodorant Roll-On and I have been loving it since the day I started using it. It is an aluminium-free, botanically based formulation that smells like a day in spa as it has a subtle herbaceous and fresh aroma. 🌿
Some major benefits of using natural deodorants:
- In contrast to antiperspirants we are all used to, deodorants don’t block pores to reduce sweat production; instead, they reduce body odour by targeting the bacteria under arms that produce sweat. 💦
- I was pleasantly surprised that Aesop Herbal Deodorant Roll-On doesn’t leave and stains neither on my body nor on my clothes. 👚
- Natural deodorants involve a blend of essential oils to support poise under pressure while antiperspirants contain aerosols that damage the earth’s atmosphere and pollute our air. 🌎
- Moreover, Aesop goes even further and produce its Herbal Deodorant Roll-On in a recyclable glass packaging. ♻️
