4 great natural deodorants that really work

We all know by now that there are not-so-great and not-so-natural ingredients in some of our favorite beauty products. From shampoo to mascara to deodorant, it’s time to rethink what products we put on our bodies.

Unfortunately, buying natural doesn’t always leave us smelling the best. Some of the often-irritating ingredients in leading products are full of chemicals that make them so effective. This is why, unfortunately, natural deodorant has garnered a bad reputation for not effectively banishing body odor. It might be best for your body, but sometimes, it’s not the best for those around you. Kick this bad impression to the curb with these natural deodorants that will keep you smelling fresh all day long.
