Native

We all know how harmful mainstream deodorants are. So why do we keep buying them?

I get it-often it’s hard to come across a natural solution for deodorant that actually helps with body odour.

Today is another friendly reminder that clogging your pores with aluminium (that’s right! It’s in your deodorant and even mentioned in the ingredients), and parabens (literally cancer causing chemicals!), has to stop.

Luckily there’s Native. Their natural deodorants are free of all chemicals and toxins, and are responsibly made in the USA. Not only do their deodorants actually get the job done, they are extremely economical, and they offer an extended product line to help take more chemicals out of your bathroom, including fluoride-free toothpaste.
