Description

We've rounded up the key players, costs, eco and ethical claims, and some insights from users to help you decide. VEGAN FRIENDLY - The entire Salt of the Earth range is 100% vegan and approved by both the Vegan Society and Vegetarian Society. You can buy the crystal on its own, or the company also sells one encased in a plastic base. In both cases, you wet the product slightly before use or rub it on to damp skin. Try different brands and strengths until you find one that suits you. Opt for mini bundles if you want to try out a few scents or different options to find the best fit for you.

It does this with a combination of natural plant and mineral powders to deodorise and absorb perspiration, including magnesium oxide and diatomaceous earth (a fossilised algae). It also contains sodium bicarbonate. Making the switch at a time when you don't have lots of high-stress work, activities or social events will take the pressure off.There's a range of unisex scents available, largely based on essential oils such as peppermint, citrus, rosemary and bergamot, as well as gender-specific options.

Aluminium spray cans often have some plastic parts, such as nozzles and lids, that are harder to recycle, while aerosol sprays have their own environmental implications.

This unisex Unscented Natural Deodorant Spray by Salt of the Earth offers long-lasting, effective protection from body odour and is made from 100% natural ingredients. It told us: 'Some people have questioned whether aluminium in some deodorants and antiperspirants can affect cancer risk. But the scientific evidence doesn't currently support a link, so we don't want people to worry.' Another said they liked it for really hot days as you don't get the creamy residue you can get with some paste or cream formulas, though they did find it slightly more irritating on freshly shaved skin. The Salt of the Earth brand of natural deodorants perfectly reflects their vision and passion for environmentally friendly, natural skincare products that are as effective as they are ethical. Natural and eco deodorants tend to work by neutralising odours and absorbing moisture, rather than preventing sweating. While plenty have moisture-absorbing ingredients, none are true antiperspirants.

Effective protection: Long-lasting and effective protection from body-odour, keeping you feeling fresh, confident, and odour-free for longer. Say goodbye to ingredients like alcohol. However, these particular salts only have a deodorising effect, and sit on the skin, whereas aluminium chlorohydrate and aluminium zirconium are antiperspirant ingredients that plug pores to prevent sweating. Dr Olioso says: 'I suspect this is more a case of people becoming more aware of and getting used to their own smell and how much they sweat - things they may have become dissociated from because of many years of using conventional products.' One user said: 'I've used this one and found it very capable of handling odours across everyday and more strenuous activities, like running, hiking and holidays in the sun, and it lasts for an absolute age.' You won't currently find most of these products in high street stores (aside from Holland and Barrett, which has a good range), so it can take a bit of time and research to figure out what's out there and what's best for you.This product is a crystal made from potassium alum - a natural mineral salt - and sits on the surface of the skin in a microscopic layer, where it kills bacteria. Ammonium alum is another one you'll commonly find in this type of product. A key fear is around aluminium in deodorants potentially causing cancer. The theory is that aluminium compounds such as aluminium chlorohydrate or aluminium zirconium, used to stop sweating, can be absorbed through the underarms and cause breast cancer. You might still want the reassurance of an antiperspirant for important events or busy days - so don't feel you have to commit to one or the other for good. From an industry authority perspective, the Cosmetics, Toiletries and Perfumery Association (CTPA) has stated: “Parabens are officially approved for use under the Cosmetics Directive (76/768/EEC), the European legislation that regulates all cosmetics and toiletries. We can reassure the public that all cosmetic and toiletry products containing parabens may continue to be used safely.”
