This All Natural Deodorant Paste from Happy Skincare will restore your faith in natural deodorants. Rather than preventing your body from sweating, which is actually a very natural and important bodily function, this deodorant kills the bacteria that cause body odour.
Sweating is actually really good for you. And antiperspirants aren't. Ditch the antiperspirant and get your sweat on with Woohoo. It's 100% natural, healthy, sensitive skin friendly and IT JUST WORKS (... ALL day). The deodorant you’ve been waiting for.
Deodorants vs Antiperspirants
Deodorants and Antiperspirants are not the same thing.
Antiperspirants use aluminium salts to either block, close or clog your pores to prevent you from sweating. In Australia they are classed and regulated as therapeutic goods because they alter your body’s normal function.
Deodorants don’t interfere with you pores or glands. They still let you sweat. Deodorants work by creating an environment on your skin that prevents bacteria from having a wild party stinking up the joint.
Fun Sweaty Fact #1 – Your sweat doesn’t actually smell. What causes BO (body odour) is the bacteria that start munching on proteins in the sweat. They break down the proteins into acids and that’s what smells.
Fun Sweaty Fact #2 – Women have more sweat glands than men. But the men’s are more active and that is why they sweat more.
Fun Sweaty Fact #3 – Stress sweat smells worse than exercise sweat. This is because it comes from different glands where the sweat has a higher percentage of proteins and fats compared to exercise sweat. The bacteria go nuts for the extra protein and fats and gorge on it like its Christmas dinner.
Using the spatula, collect to a pea sized amount of deodorant and warm it in your fingertips. Rub it under your arm until it disappears (just like you would a moisturiser).
If you lose your spatula no need to stress :) You can use your fingertip to scoop out your deodorant paste - just make sure your fingers are clean and dry first.
P.S. If you’re used to using an antiperspirant, please remember that this isn’t one! This deodorant works by neutralising odour and keeps you dryer by absorbing moisture, but it DOESN’T block your pores with aluminium to stop you from sweating. It can take a couple of weeks for your body to adjust to this type of deodorant but it’s worth the wait!
