If you’re keen about green beauty like myself, finding alternative options that are just as effective as their chemical counterparts is as exciting as it is relieving.
Particularly the musty world of deodorants. The debate goes back and forth about the safety of aluminum-laced deodorants and lymph nodes, so I’d like to take a moment to discuss my unabated love for Weleda Citrus Deodorant. As someone who is so paranoid about sweating that I feel the need to carry deodorant in my purse, this bottle is so simple and pretty I have no qualms about displaying it on my desk.
This non-aerosol spray is free of aluminum salts, instead calling upon biodynamic lemon peel oil and organic orange essential oils to temper the sweats—so you’re in the clear when it comes to the ingredient list.
Bottom line: It smells like a gin and tonic and it really works. Just be prepared to reapply the deodorant a few times throughout the day.
Weleda Citrus Deodorant is $16 for 100ml and is available at weleda.ca; well.ca; Whole Foods Market; select health food stores; Planet Organic Market; Noah’s Natural Foods and Rexall Pharma Plus stores. Sound like a small fortune? It lasts a really, really long time. Promise! There’s also a purse size version available for $11.
