Description

There are three formulations to choose from with this creamy paste-based deodorant: 'Clean' - for daily use/all skin types, 'Gentle' - for sensitive skin, and 'Active' - for more demanding days. 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.'

We've rounded up the key players, costs, eco and ethical claims, and some insights from users to help you decide.

The base ingredients include tapioca starch for moisture absorption and sodium bicarbonate for odour control. It also contains a range of natural fragrances including patchouli oil. There are several scents to choose from. 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. 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.' 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. Similar to the Natural Deo Co offering, it contains bicarbonate of soda and arrowroot to help prevent odours by altering the skin's natural pH.

For centuries, natural mineral salts have been used to prevent body odour. One of these natural salts, potassium alum, is the main active ingredient in Salt of the Earth’s Unscented Natural Deodorant Spray. Potassium alum creates an invisible antibacterial layer on the skin’s surface that helps to control the growth of bacteria, preventing body odour. The result is effective, long-lasting protection that allows your skin to breathe. Salt of the Earth says a 1-litre spray refill uses 70% less plastic than buying 10 individual 100ml sprays. 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.' Natural moisture absorbers, such as tapioca starch, arrowroot and kaolin clay, are typical ingredients used in these products, along with antibacterial ingredients such as baking soda, citric acid and ammonium alum, which prevent odours.Moisturising agents tend to be naturally derived options such as cacao or shea butter, coconut and almond oil. There are currently three unisex scents available, and the subscription option is easy to change online. Some people might still prefer to opt for aluminium-free products, and if you're keen on plastic-free deodorant you might not have any choice, as most are aluminium-free.

For example, crystal products such as Salt Of The Earth contain potassium alum, and PitRok is made from ammonium alum - both aluminium salts.The base ingredients in Wild deodorant includes tapioca starch to absorb moisture, and sodium bicarbonate to control odour. Extracts of essential oils provide the fragrances. The brand claims Akt, developed by two West End dancers, has been tested on more than 1,000 professional dancers and athletes. It's claimed to be plastic, aluminium and cruelty-free and to absorb both wetness and odours (although it stops short of classing itself as an antiperspirant). The rise in popularity of eco deodorants has several catalysts, but for some it's been prompted by concerns about ingredients in conventional products, particularly aluminium. 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. There are no added extras here - just crystal in a box. So if you're after a no-frills eco deodorant product that will last for six plus months (if you look after it) for not much outlay, this could be the one for you.
