It seems as though more and more persons of contemporary society are making a conscious effort to eliminate as many chemicals from their lives as possible. Unfortunately, a lot of beauty and self-maintenance products contain a multitude of what can be harmful chemicals, therefore it can be difficult to designate natural product alternatives that actually work.
Natural deodorant, in particular, is a tricky concept. I have experimented with several different types of aluminum-free deodorant but did not find them to perform nearly as well as most drugstore brands. I thought I would do some research on the topic and attempt to offer some of the better natural deodorants, with this information coming from total beauty.com.

Natural deodorants, depending on the brand, tend to be more expensive than traditional drugstore deodorant, so be aware of a higher price tag if you decide to purchase any. I personally have not tried any of the options listed on the total beauty website, however I did try a deodorant from Green Beaver that did not work for me whatsoever. I tend to perspire quite heavily in my armpits, therefore I need a strong anti-perspirant product to have my back on hot, sunny days. Green Beaver really let me down in terms of its deodorant performance, so if you are like me and tend to get sweaty, avoid this particular brand.
There are numerous options for individuals searching for an effective natural deodorant, and many can be purchased at health food stores. Keep me posted if you find success with any!
