Things We Love: Natural Deodorants
As most of us know, what we put on our skin is as important for our overall health as what we put in our mouths. We suspect that’s why plenty of chemical-, gluten-, and cruelty-free products have hit the natural marketplace over the last several years and the quality keeps getting better.
Why go natural? Because conventional deodorants contain chemicals known to be endocrine disruptors and neurotoxins—aluminum, propylene gylcol, parabens, and pthalates—both of which are implicated in breast cancer and a host of neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
Alternatives. YogaFit has found two natural deodorants that keep on keepin’ on even after a vigorous and heated vinyasa practice: Schmidt’s Natural Deodorant and Be Simply Fair Deodorant Balm. Both products are free of offending chemicals, are vegan, cruelty- and gluten-free, and come fragrance-free or in an array of pleasant smelling, 100-percent natural fragrances.
