Natural Deodorant - Is It An Eco-Step Too Far?

Natural Deodorant - how does it work?

With so many commercial producers relying heavily on aluminium, artificial additives, palm oil, plastics, detergents and preservatives, what’s different about our Cosy Cottage products and how do they work? After all, with deodorant, none of us want to take any risks!

Welcome to the next in our series of blogs going into more detail about why our Cosy Cottage products are different and how they work.

Back to Basics - Will Natural Deodorant do the job?

Our natural deodorant follows a different approach to traditional antiperspirants and deodorants. Instead of forcing our bodies into sweat-free submission and covering up smells with even stronger, synthetic smells, our natural deodorant works with your body to eliminate odour. Our gentle, natural, essential oil fragrances, made from steam distilled fruit and flowers, are the icing on the cake.

First things first; our natural deodorant is not designed to stop perspiration; one of our bodies’ important, natural processes to regulate temperature and eliminate toxins. Interestingly though, people who have been using our natural deodorant for several months have reported that they have noticed a reduction in excessive perspiration.

Instead, our product, uses natural, simple ingredients to create slightly alkaline conditions under the arms, which discourage the growth of the bacteria which cause underarm odour. They smooth and nourish underarm skin too. No need for potentially cancer inducing aluminium, weapons-grade fragrances nor antiperspirants, suppressing natural processes; just a luxurious blend of soothing butters, essential oils, gentle alkaline agents and vitamin E.    

The formulation of our natural deodorant is coconut oil based and water-free which means that preservatives such as parabens, which have been cited in some studies to contribute to  endocrine disruption, are not required. Read our blog here for more about parabens

The feedback from our customers about our natural deodorant speaks for itself. Since launch in 2019 it’s become our most popular product.

Why not take a look here.

    I honestly didn’t think this would work. I ordered a tin because it was free postage and packaging! Well it works! It’s lovely and I’ve ordered some more. I can’t use aerosols since having a budgie and this deodorant is ideal. Thankyou!

    I solemnly testify that this deodorant works. It does exactly what it says on the tin. Oh, and it actually is in a tin, not an unrecylable plastic dispenser. Thanks for this explanation, very interesting. In my quest for non-plastic, non-polluting, natural toiletry products I have tried several deodorants. This one is the best…
