Is Natural Deodorant Better?

When you find the right one, it sure is!! 100%

We took 1 year to test a bunch of natural deodorants for you.  Which meant we sure did have a few stinky days in the mix!!

Finding the best alternative to antiperspirants was on the top of our priority list since we use it every single day.

We wanted to find a brand that specifically specialised in deodorant, worked with your individual needs and aligned with our clean beauty values.


Guess what we found it!! Boom!!

Good + Clean has four deliciously amazing naturally fragrant deodorants ready to detox your pits. You will never go back!!!!

This award winning deodorant contains ingredients that kill bacteria, neutralise odour and absorb moisture so you don’t end up a sweaty mess.  Plus they condition the skin too.

We love that their deodorants are made for the most sensitive skins, including pregnant and breastfeeding mothers.

If you have struggled with a natural deodorant before it could be because the brand uses baking soda. I personally find this ingredient irritating on the skin. So it was a big no no from us. Luckily Good + Clean agree and they combine the most effective ingredients, with fresh essential oils to make them smell great! 

Good + Clean is a sustainable brand which makes it even more likeable. Their deoderants come in a recyclable eco-friendly tin. Plus Good + Clean donate a minimum of 50% of their profits to land, ocean and wildlife conservation projects arounds Australia. I mean, how good is this right?


The truth is, most readily available antiperspirants are filled with nasty parabens, phthalates and synthetic fragrance. We know you have heard this all before. But just to drum it in, these ingredients have been shown to be endocrine disruptive and mess with your hormones. No Thanks!

It is a controversial topic linking antiperspirants to breast cancer as there is still insufficient evidence to claim that there is a risk. Personally I err on the side of caution and now choose natural deodorants every time! At the end of the day it is your choice.

One Study


One of the most talked about concerns in antiperspirants is aluminium salts because they block your sweat glands.

It’s a no brainer but we are supposed to release that sweat, not block it! Sweat releases toxins from the body, and yes that is a good thing. 🙂

Natural deodorants don’t block your sweat glands, they contain moisture absorbing ingredients to keep you dry.


It will take a couple of months to completely detox your body off antiperspirants. The bacteria on your skin needs time to balance out, but it is soooooo worth it!! You can try speeding up the process using a clay mask under your arm pits a few times a week. Your body will also naturally remove harmful chemicals through the liver, kidneys and by urination.

Head over and browse the Good + Clean range NOW.. My personal fav at the moment is Nerolina and Alex’s is Santalum.
