Why Our Aluminum-Free Deodorant Is Good For Sensitive Skin

Deodorant for sensitive skin

Many of us have sensitive skin, especially under the arms, yet many conventional deodorants use harsh, irritating ingredients that wreak havoc on the armpits.

From baking soda and fragrances to talc and petrolatum, people are finally saying no to irritating ingredients in their deodorant. That’s why we at EG were inspired to create a deodorant formula that is not only superbly effective but doesn't irritate your pits. Our all-natural deodorant is as effective as it is non-irritating. Here’s a look into why our deodorant won’t harm your underarms.  

No Baking Soda

Baking soda is typically included in deodorants for its cost-effectiveness and naturally deodorizing properties. Unfortunately, it is a highly alkaline ingredient that has the potential to react with our slightly acidic skin. Many people are very sensitive to this reaction and can experience damage to their skin mantle and moisture barrier, resulting in skin irritation and rash.

Yes Prebiotics

The underarm area is not always the first thing we think about when it comes to promoting a healthy microbiome. It may surprise you to learn that it isn't sweating itself that causes an unpleasant smell, but is rather the result of sweat mixing with the bacteria living on the skin. Our deodorant includes prebiotics which supports the skin's natural microflora which reduces space for the bad bacteria that causes odor.

No fragrances and phthalates

Synthetic Fragrance is commonly added to deodorants to mask odors and provide that familiar, fresh scent. However, the term “fragrance” tends to mask a myriad of unpleasant chemicals and harmful ingredients. If you are one of the 74 million Americans with a chemical sensitivity, then you may have already experienced skin irritation and rashes from using chemical-laden deodorants.

Yes 100% pure essential oils

Our new, natural deodorant collection utilizes healing, restorative essential oils for the optimum health of your skin. The Frankincense Lime natural deodorant is the perfect go-to for sensitive skin. Frankincense and Lime essential oils are ideal for their soothing effects and skin-repairing capabilities. The Lemon essential oil in the deodorant is a wonderful tonic for inflamed skin. It also has many antiseptic properties. Lavender essential oil also actively promotes healing for irritated skin.

No talc

The talc used in some commercial deodorants can be particularly irritating to the skin. Some of these mineral particles have rough edges, causing microscopic tears that can be especially aggravating to sensitive skin.

Yes Arrowroot Powder

On top of being ultra absorbent, arrowroot powder is what helps our deodorant keep its shape. High in B-complex vitamins and essential minerals, arrowroot powder also softens and smooths skin.

No Petrolatum

A by-product of petroleum, petrolatum is a common ingredient in commercial deodorants and antiperspirants. It rests on the skin, trapping sweat and bacteria. Not only does this prevent your body from properly detoxing, but it can also increase your risk of skin irritation.

Yes pure Carrier Oils and Vegetable Glycerin

Instead of adding a layer over your skin, our natural deodorants use coconut oil, shea butter and vegetable glycerin to nourish your skin and allow full absorption of the ingredients for optimum protection. Make the switch; your skin will thank you.
