Deodorants come in many different forms
Deodorants are available in many forms: as sprays, creams, sticks and powders, for example. Deodorants prevent the formation of the bacteria that cause odor and the scents of the deodorant cover up odors. Also unscented natural deodorants are available.
Antiperspirants are also used as deodorants. Natural deodorants do not contain antiperspirants but support the skin’s own natural functions by ingredients such as vegetable extracts. For example sage is an herb which effectively prevents sweating. Natural deodorants also don’t clog the pores like synthetic deodorants can do.
Switching from synthetic deodorants to natural deodorants
When transitioning from traditional deodorants and antiperspirants to using natural deodorants, skin can react by itching and sweating more than usual. This is because the bacteria that have been accumulated on pores and the lower layers of the skin are exiting the body, thus causing a purifying reaction. This phase can last for a few weeks after which the situation stabilizes.
