Deodorants - are they all made equal?
‘Equal’ is tough to measure but it’s safe to safe not all deodorants are the same. Depending on your needs, there are various deodorant sprays and sticks to choose from. Those who struggle to keep sweat at bay and prevent body odour should opt for a maximum protection deodorant. Many of these advanced antiperspirant formulas offer multi-day protection that even overactive glands won’t be able to reckon with.

Supply is beginning to meet demand and plenty of brands offer chemical and paraben-free formulas. Natural oils like coconut and plant-derived HydroSenn+™ are coming up as the top eco-friendly ingredients to watch. Why not opt for one of the below products?
