Smell Fresh for Longer Organic ingredients in natural deodorants absorb and suppress odours while also soothing the skin. Using natural ingredients like coconut oil, beeswax pellets, baking soda, corn starch and essential oils can be more effective and less harmful to your body.
No Deodorant Marks While deodorant might be the answer to everyone’s BO-induced misery, the white marks it leaves can be nastier. Swap the spray-on antiperspirant for a natural stick product that won’t damage your skin or ruin your favourite black shirt.

Like cigarette smoke, these propellants not only harm the body spray user, but those around them, too.
Prevent Allergic Reactions A spray-on deodorant contains a high amount of chemicals that when released can cause some form of allergic reaction such as asthma, eczema and even rhinitis.
