Your skin is your largest organ and your body absorbs everything you put on it. So why not use products with all-natural ingredients?
Sweating - it's a natural process
Sweating is normal. It's the body's way of cooling down, and it's a natural detoxification process that's essential for our health.
But for those who struggle with body odour, there's a common misconception that it's the sweat that makes you smell. However, sweat is in fact odourless, and it's actually bacteria living on your skin that cause body odour. These bacteria metabolise the proteins and fatty acids from your sweat, which make your underarms smell.
Natural deodorants vs. Antiperspirants
Natural deodorants deal with the body odour by neutralising the smell and killing the bacteria that live off the proteins and fatty acids in sweat.
Whereas antiperspirants prevent you from sweating altogether. By blocking your pores with aluminium which dissolves in 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.
Dept. of Soul's all-natural deodorants don't stop your body from doing what it's naturally supposed to do. instead, we take the magic of Mother Nature to create products that nourish your body, mind and soul.
