After using spray deodorants for years, I started to feel uncomfortable when I recently took a look at some of the ingredients. Most spray deos contain parabens as well as alcohol in different forms, which I just don't enjoy putting on such a vulnerable area every single day.
Hence the swap to this PitROK Crystal roll-on deodorant. Unlike spray, or indeed even other brands of roll-on deodorants, PitROK is based on 'pure natural mineral salts', which still provide day long protection.
On the bottle, it clearly states that is does not contain any of the following; Aluminium Chlorohydrate, Aliminium Zirconium, Parabens, SLS/SLES, Propene Glycerol or Silicone. It also states that is does not block pores.
Sounds perfect right? But, what about the effectiveness and the smell?... I think one of the most desired properties of a deodorant is the scent, hence the vast variations available on the market. You may think an all natural product may smell earthy or strange, but this includes Aloe Vera and Grapefruit seed extract, which are both fresh, invigorating and soothing.
As for effectiveness... I have not sweat more at all, and it leaves a lovely fresh feeling all day. So I am happy that I feel good, and guilt free about what I am putting on my underarms! It does cost a tiny bit more than other options around, at about £4-5, but it lasts for a long time as you hardly need any, and I don't think you can put a price on your wellbeing!
What do you think of more natural deodorants?
