Natural deodorant creams with baking soda provide very reliable protection against the smell of sweat, because baking soda or similar active ingredients prevent the colonization of odour-causing bacteria. However, you should not expect a sweat-inhibiting effect from a natural deodorant, it is not an antiperspirant. Although there are natural cosmetic deodorants that contain tanning agents and whose astringent effect briefly contracts the pores, the effect has so far been rather small. Sweat production can only be properly contained or even stopped with aluminum salts, such as those used in classic antiperspirants. In our deodorant guide you will find tips for switching to deodorant cream .
If you were previously used to deodorant roll-ons or deodorant sprays, it may seem a bit strange at first to take the cream out of the jar with your finger and spread it under your armpits. After a short adjustment, it feels completely normal. During development, we made sure that the product leaves no residue on your fingers. Washing your hands again after application is therefore unnecessary.
There are now some good natural deodorants on the market. The most important ingredient of an effective cream deodorant is undoubtedly baking soda and can be recognized at the INCI as sodium bicarbonate. All other ingredients are secondary, but should not pollute the environment or your body. We therefore refrain from using silver, as it is used in many natural cosmetic deodorants, as it is a biocide that damages the environment and should only be used in a very targeted manner. Ideally, the ideal cream deodorant is unscented or contains only a small amount of perfume in the form of natural essential oils, which, in addition to the fragrance, also have an antimicrobial function. The best deodorant is the one that accompanies you invisibly but reliably throughout the day.
Sprays are easy to use and work better than creams for long armpit hair. In all other areas, however, the cream performs better. There is no spray mist as with sprays. This eliminates the typical "deodorant mist" in the bathroom and the risk of inhaling aerosols. The packaging is smaller and generally easier to recycle. The creams are also very economical, a 50 gram jar is enough for about four to five months.
