If you’d like to avoid the ingredients often found in many off-the-shelf deodorants and antiperspirants, making the switch to an aluminum-free variety is a great step, but one that can take a bit of getting used to.
Though these products may reduce your protection against sweat, they will ensure you’re covered for odour and some absorbency.
And while you may have to reapply them more often, the natural ingredients and aluminum-free formulas will give you peace of mind.
If you can get behind a cream application, then this Calgary-based brand run by two sisters has a formula (there are three: original, vegan and sensitive) and scent (there are 12) for you. We’re partial to Sweet Jane, which smells of vanilla and pear. Bonus: one jar will last you three to six months!
What’s in it: The clay and beeswax formula also contains coconut oil, baking soda, shea butter and vitamin E.
Routine Sweet Jane, $28.
