If you’re wanting to do your bit for the planet – and we’re talking making your beauty regime more eco-friendly – you’ll have likely already heard about natural deodorants. But what are natural deodorants, and should you be switching out your usual sweat-solving problem for something more organic? 

We spoke to Wild to find out more about natural deodorants, and the brand’s sustainable approach to staying fresh!


What Is A Natural Deodorant? 

natural deodorant does what it says on the tin – uses ingredients derived from natureMeaning they never include aluminium, parabens or sulphates that are often found in mainstream deodorants and antiperspirants. Insteadalternative ingredients – such as tapioca starch, which is an effective natural ingredient to absorb moisture - are used to keep you dry and refreshed all day long. 

Do Natural Deodorants Actually Work? 

Yes, natural deodorants work! At Wild, the team have worked extremely hard to develop a formula that works effectively from day oneAnd whatever your day involves – whether it’s working in an office, chilling out at home, or even hitting the gym - the deodorant will keep you smelling fresh and dry from day to night.


Is Natural Deodorant An Antiperspirant? 

Natural deodorants like Wild’s are not an antiperspirant as they do not include aluminium salts in their ingredient lists. And this is because Wild believes sweating is a natural and important function, that shouldn’t be dealt with using chemicals. 

Natural deodorants are extremely effective at tackling odours associated with sweating without using aluminium. And, in fact, after switching from antiperspirant to deodorant, a number of people often find they actually sweat less in general! 

What Is A ‘Transition Period’ And Will I Experience One When Using A Natural Deodorant? 

If you’ve looked into natural deodorants before, you may have come across the term transition period. This refers to a short period of excess sweating that some people experience when switching from an antiperspirant to a natural deodorant. 

Many people will not experience this when switching, however a small amount of people may experience some excess sweating for up to two weeks when they first begin with this natural product. Don’t worry though, this settles down quicklyJust stick with it – we promise it’s worth it!

I'm someone who loves getting glammed up, but I feel like I never have enough time. Frequently running between work, the gym and seeing friends means my makeup routine is quick and often touched up on the go. Therefore, beauty products that serve as multi-purpose are perfect for me - a blush that works for cheeks and lips is a must in my makeup bag!
