The Natural Deodorants Revolution: Natural Deodorants by Bellary Nature and Reverie

Rising Demand for Natural Deodorants

Natural deodorant works differently from an antiperspirant:

☑ It does not contain aluminium and hence do not plug up sweat ducts.
☑ It allows sweat to reach top layer of skin so the body can breathe naturally.
☑ It naturally masks and neutralizes the odour produced by interaction of sweat and bacteria.

In short, it works with our body the way it is intended to function; by allowing it to secrete what it naturally needs while simultaneously neutralizing the odour through a potent combination of natural ingredients.

New and Improved Formulation

Our natural deodorants get upgraded and have tested to perform well on the following parameters:

1. ‘Feel’ Test

  • Ease of Application: Our new container is durable and hand-friendly. Simply turn the ribbed wheel at the bottom to twist up and dispense the deodorant. There was a plug on top that keeps the product safe until ready to use!
  • Wearability: Easy to maneuver across the pits and effortlessly glide on without feeling sticky nor tacky. It isn’t too thick and feels comfortably dry; without clumping or crumbling.

2. Smell’ Test

  • Effects of Scent: All the scents are pleasing to nose – not overpowering – and they lasted through two hours of wear.
  • Whiff Test: They held up to this test which subjected users to physical activities that resemble whatever your typical day demands through our hot, humid weather.

3. Stain’ Test

  • Residue on Skin: Our natural deodorants stay on skin, leaving only a faint sheen (unlike antiperspirant which can give you more yellow pit stains on white shirts).
  • Residue on Cloth: Only minimal goop is left on clothes. Staining is minimized.

Think Healthy, Be Healthy
Find your Motivation to Make the Switch

Sweating isn’t really a bad thing at all! Furthermore, sweat is also not just for the stink.

Normal sweating is certainly good because it is the natural process by which your body cools itself during an intense workout or on a hot day. The sweat released helps to regulate the body temperature to prevent you from overheating.

In the average healthy person, sweating also reduces the viable bacteria on skin surface, which may lower risk of skin infections.

Importantly, sweating helps your body eliminate toxins and waste to support proper functioning of immune system and prevent diseases that are associated with toxin overload. In fact, many toxic elements were preferentially excreted through sweat. Sweating profusely can actually help reduce your body odour and this foul odour is also said to be related to toxins being expelled (not your supposedly ‘odourless’ or ‘natural’ odour) caused by toxin burden from poor dietary lifestyle or environmental exposure.

Many have switched to natural deodorants few years back following a massive personal care natural movement as they become increasingly aware of the products that are laden with paraben and conscious of the ill effects that are linked to certain ingredients found in the antiperspirant. Some people find that specific incident motivated them to switch. A sister of our friend had a painful lump around her underarm and was told that it was fatty growth caused by clogged pores. With natural treatments working on lymph detox and drainage as well as a switch to natural deodorant, and feeling so much relief thereafter, she never looked back since.

What might your motivations for a switch be? Do share with us what prompted you to make a switch from antiperspirant to natural deodorants and your experience of using your natural deodorant. In our article, What to Expect when Switching to Natural Deodorants: Tips for Making your Transition Smoother, we offer some helpful tips for those who wish to make a switch to natural deodorant on how to make the transition process as smooth and comfortable as possible.
