Best Aluminum Free Deodorant And Antiperspirants For 2022

Best Aluminum Free Deodorant And Antiperspirants For 2022

We don't know about you. But when we hear that there's aluminum in a deodorant, we can't help but imagine a fine layer of tin foil lurking under somebody's armpits.

We know that doesn't make logical sense. But does having aluminum in your deodorant sound logical to you?

Either way, with so many natural deodorants available, you can ditch the aluminum for good. And no, this doesn't mean you'll ditch that fresh feeling as well.

#2. Native

Native deodorant has been around for a while. So many people are familiar with their aluminum free deodorants that are also paraben free.

But what they may not know is that Native deodorant also uses coconut and tapioca starch. Not only does that coconut scent give you those sweet vacation vibes.

But it acts as an antioxidant that keeps your underarms moisturized. And the tapioca starch is there to help you keep your pits dry.

Natural deodorant vs. antiperspirants

Now that you have an idea of the best aluminum free deodorants out there, it's time to straighten some things up. Oftentimes, "deodorant" and "antiperspirant" will be used interchangeably.

But they're not actually the same thing. And calling a deodorant aluminum free is actually an oxymoron.

You see, no true deodorant contains aluminum. Instead, they may contain artificial fragrances and ingredients meant to reduce body odor.

But antiperspirants actively clog up your sweat glands to keep you from sweating. And they do that through the use of aluminum.

While there is still a need for more scientific evidence, the presence of aluminum in deodorant has been linked to health risks such as breast cancer. And this is why aluminum free deodorant is having its moment in the limelight.

It's not just about eliminating aluminum and baking soda and adding in corn starch for the sake of sensitive skin. It's about caring for your overall health and offering you an aluminum free deodorant option.

This way, you can enjoy the fresh scent of your deodorant with peace of mind. And you won't be sacrificing your health for the sake of smelling fresh.

Free to be

We hope you enjoyed our take on the best aluminum free products out there. And we hope you'll feel a little more comfortable going out there to introduce yourself.

All of these natural deodorants have you and your pits' best interests in mind. So really, what do you have to lose?

From all of us here at PAPR Cosmetics, we're rooting for you on your zero waste, aluminum free journey!
