What is a natural deodorant?
Natural deodorant works in the same way that a regular deodorant works but with only using natural ingredients that aren’t produced in a lab or considered to have some pretty nasty side effects on us long term.
What’s the difference between deodorant and antiperspirants?
Designed to still allow you to sweat, deodorant deals with body odour by neutralising the smell and killing the bacteria that lead to smelly armpits.
Whereas antiperspirants prevent you from sweating altogether. By blocking your pores with aluminium which dissolves into the moisture on the skin and creates a gel barrier, antiperspirants temporarily block your sweat glands. Over time, this can cause toxins to clog up the lymph nodes around your underarms, which isn't good for your body.
Will I sweat more using natural deodorants?
For the first week or so, you may well sweat more. But this is mainly because your armpits will be busy detoxing any harsh chemicals your body might have absorbed. After a few weeks of using our deodorant, you'll probably find that you sweat less than you did before.
I heard natural deodorants cause rashes and redness on your underarms, can you tell me more about this?
Just because all our ingredients are completely natural, it doesn't eliminate the risk of having an adverse reaction to our deodorants. So it's important not to overapply the formula - a little really does go a long way.
If you start sweating quite a bit in the first week make sure you're regularly washing your underarms to prevent a sweat rash developing.
And if you notice a slight tingling sensation, don't panic - it may take time for your body to adjust to 100% natural deodorant. Instead, cut down to 2-3 times a week for 2 weeks, until your body gets use to the nature's magic. Discontinue use if rash or irritation occurs. If a rash does develop, once healed please try our sensitive formula and different varieties of our deodorants. Dept. of Soul roll-on's are formulated from different ingredients to the creamy sticks, bars and jars.
Do Dept. of Soul staff and management use the products?
Yes. We had personally tried a lot of natural deodorants and were continually disappointed that they were not effective. Until, we decided to create our own magic natural formula. What has transpired from a personal need is now an amazing range of natural and effective deodorants - that not only we can use but everyone else can too.
Does your natural deodorant actually work?
Yes. We've chosen natural ingredients that are known for their antibacterial, absorbing and odour-neutralising properties to produce a unique formula that absorbs sweat, eliminates body odour and moisturises your skin.
We've got a bunch of great reviews you can check out - but you can rest assured our stuff is the real deal. Try them for yourself.
