How to Choose a Healthy Deodorant – Buying Guide

When looking for the right deodorant for you, remember to also read reviews for things like whether or not it stains and how long each application lasts.

Avoid Potentially Harmful Ingredients like Aluminum, Parabens, and More

Avoid Potentially Harmful Ingredients like Aluminum, Parabens, and More
We’ll be honest here. Popular deodorants like Dove and Lady Speed Stick have been on the market for a while; if they had been proved beyond a doubt dangerous, they would’ve been removed from shelves long ago.
There have been rumors circulating that aluminum causes Alzheimer’s disease and breast cancer. However, members from both the American Cancer Society and the Alzheimer’s Association have stated that as of now there is no clear link between aluminum and either disease. It’s highly unlikely your skin can absorb enough aluminum for the ingredient to be dangerous.
But what aluminum does do is clog your pores so you can’t sweat. Seems innocuous, but you might not want to use a product that keeps your body from going about its natural business.
Another common ingredient that you might want to avoid is parabens. Parabens are used as preservatives, and some have been shown to interfere with your hormones. They’re usually not present in high enough concentrations to cause any harm, but women still might not want them around their estrogen-sensitive breast tissue. They also are known to cause skin irritation.
So, to be safe, look for deodorants that are free from aluminum, parabens, and other potentially harmful chemicals, such as phthalates, triclosan, and irritating dyes and fragrances.

Look for Ingredients that Absorb Odor and Dampness

Look for Ingredients that Absorb Odor and Dampness
If a deodorant doesn’t have the usual harmful ingredients, it needs to have other ways to help you fight body odor.
Some of the most common absorptive and odor-blocking ingredients include baking soda, zinc oxide, magnesium hydroxide, and activated charcoal. Do note, however, that baking soda can be irritating to some, so it’s best to avoid for those with sensitive skin.
As for fragrances, because most deodorants that include “fragrance” or “parfum” on their ingredient lists also have phthalates, it’s best to look for one that uses essential oils as its main scent (or unscented!).

Choose Between Stick, Cream, or Spray Applicators

Choose Between Stick, Cream, or Spray Applicators
Most traditional deodorants come in stick form, but healthy deodorants tend to come in a wider range of applicator types. There are sprays, which can often make you feel cooler, and creams, which adhere well to your skin and are less likely to wear off.
Naturally, there are also stick types, but it might make sense to also consider creams and sprays, which can work just as well (or even better!), though they may be less portable than sticks.

Summary

It may seem like healthy deodorants don’t work as well as conventional ones, but it’s all about knowing what to look for and reading reviews. Deciding to switch out your products doesn’t have to mean giving up on effectiveness.
