What is ‘natural’ deodorant? (And does it work??)

Trying to find zero waste, plastic free, vegan, cruelty free & palm free deodorant took me down the biggest internet worm hole!

There is a lot of misinformation out there. Which is a shame, because there’s no need for it. Most people are happy to switch to ‘natural’ deodorant for the ethical & eco benefits.

We don’t need to be tricked into it with pseudoscience nonsense 🙈
