Natural Deodorant vs Antiperspirant – What’s the difference?

deodorant vs antipersperant

The difference between natural deodorant and an antiperspirant deodorant is that a natural deodorant works to mask any underarm odours produced when you perspire using non-toxic ingredients whilst an antiperspirant uses chemical products (typically parabens and aluminium based produces) to reduce the perspiration your body produces, locking in odours. Most off-the-shelf supermarket ‘deodorants’ combine both natural and chemical products to both reduce perspiration and mask odours.

How do aluminium-based antiperspirant deodorants work?

An antiperspirant blocks your body’s eccrine glands. These are the glands that make perspiration and odours.  Typically aluminium based ingredients and chemical parabens are used to do this.

Additionally, some people suffer an allergic reaction from the chemical ingredients found in many antiperspirants.  Switching to a Bare You natural deodorant which uses only safe, non-toxic ingredients, can overcome this whilst stiff offering peace of mind that you’re protected from unpleasant odours.

We recommend you read the ingredients list of your antiperspirant to see what it contains.  What you may find are ingredients such as:

  • aluminium;
  • parabens including triclosan, methylparaben, propylparaben, ethylparaben and butylparaben;
  • phthalates;
  • butane and isobutane;
  • petrochemicals including propylene glycol; and
  • synthetic fragrances.

Bare You natural deodorants contain only non-toxic ingredients including:

  • coconut oil;
  • tapioca starch;
  • shea butter;
  • jojoba oil; and
  • essential oils.

We know which option we prefer to put on our skin every day!

How does Bare You natural deodorant work?

Bare You aluminium free deodrant works by using natural products to reduce bacteria that form under the arm and often are the source of the odour.  Our essential oil fragrances are the second line of defence, masking odours that may be produced under the arm.

At Bare You, we believe that perspiring is a natural part of life and something we shouldn’t be embarrassed about. Whilst the odour produced from underarm bacteria can be unpleasant, our products help to mask this, giving you the confidence to undertake your daily routine without being self-conscious.
