Most conventional deodorants and antiperspirants contain several ingredients linked to serious health effects, from Alzheimer’s disease to virulent cancers. Since deodorants and antiperspirants are designed to stay on our bodies for hours, this allows the potential for more harmful chemicals to be absorbed through the skin. While natural options are available, many people complain about the inadequacy of natural deodorants to adequately mask body odor. There is now an abundance of alternative options many improved upon since their initial introduction several years ago that may inspire us to think again about incorporating natural deodorants into our body care regime. This article attempts to review the natural deodorants and antiperspirants and their advantage over the conventional ones.
