“Effective, Organic Deodorant”
In a world where potentially harmful chemical ingredients are common in personal care products, and many non-synthetic deodorants do not work as well as they should, it can be difficult to find an organic alternative that still meets the needs of your everyday deodorant.
Introducing Dr Mercola Organic Deodorant, one of the safest deodorants available. Created for both men and women to replace the non-synthetic varieties, it can even be used by teens.
So how effective is it? So effective, in fact, that it was created to help you withstand a 50+ mile bike ride in the humid summer sun!
And… how safe is it?
Toxin-Free Deodorant and Safe
Your underarms are one of the most sensitive areas of your body. So doesn’t it make sense to keep harsh chemicals away from them?
Aluminium, in particular, is one of the worst metals you can put on your skin. It’s often added to many non-organic deodorants as an antiperspirant. Aluminium is a potentially dangerous toxin that may lead to health issues when applied to the body. Though, these organic deodorants are not antiperspirants, it is good to sweat to help eliminate toxins.
These deodorants have been formulated to contain no harmful chemicals or additives including aluminium, parabens, sulfates, phthalates, petroleum, phosphates, DEA, or dyes. Plus, there are no synthetic, artificial, or genetically modified ingredients.
Instead, these deodorants are USDA-certified organic. Plus, everything is assembled by hand in an inspected facility with equipment cleaned with only green products.
And the few quality ingredients included in Mercola Organic Deodorants are 100% food-grade and completely safe for you to eat!
Simple and Pure Organic Deodorant
Dr Mercola believes that simple and pure is best, and since this deodorant contains none of the added fillers and artificial ingredients that others do, it has minimal ingredients. So few, in fact, that there are only five ingredients in this unscented deodorant:
Baking Soda: Baking soda, or sodium bicarbonate, is one of the safest and most versatile substances available. The usually fine white powder works wonders in my deodorant formula by helping to prevent body odour. Baking soda is also naturally aluminium free.
Cold-Pressed, 100% Organic Virgin Coconut Oil: Coconut oil is the smartest oil you can use in cooking, and now, Dr Mercola is also recommending it as a beneficial, effective ingredient in his Organic Deodorant. The ingredient in coconut oil that makes it work so well is lauric acid. But the coconut oil quality also has to be taken into account. The coconut oil in our deodorant is certified organic and is cold pressed to avoid destroying coconut oil’s beneficial properties.
Organic Arrowroot Powder: This white powder is used as a thickening and stabilising agent in food preparation. In addition, it’s also very useful as a chemical-free, non-synthetic body care formulation base.
Organic Carnauba Wax: Carnauba wax is widely used in the cosmetic, body care, and food industries. It is beneficial for cosmetics because it is very durable, and produces a glossy finish. This carnauba wax is also toxin-free.
Organic Shea Butter: Shea butter is a vitamin A cream from West Central Africa. For centuries, shea butter has been highly regarded as a superior skin moisturiser, having the ability to penetrate deeply, softening the skin.
Essential Oils... Luxurious Scents Without the Chemicals: Although this unscented deodorant contains only the above ingredients, Mercola gives you a few options without using harmful chemicals and synthetic ingredients.
Many “scented” deodorants on the market use artificial fragrances to produce the smell. These added chemicals may irritate your skin or create sensitivities. And “fragrance” is now known to be a potentially hazardous ingredient.
Instead, Mercola use only pure essential oil blends from plants to make up each unique deodorant fragrance.
Their newest scents are ideal for both men and women: Eucalyptus Mint and Sweet Orange.
Please note, Mercola organic deodorants are not antiperspirants as Dr Mercola believes it is good to sweat to help eliminate toxins.
