Does Natural Deodorant Work?


The short answer is YES! natural deodorant does definitely work, and in some cases better than the non-natural deodorant you buy in shops. We wear deodorant to neutralise odours so that we smell and feel fresh throughout the day. So when it comes to switching to a natural one, your main concern is likely to be whether it will work for you or not. In truth, everyone has a different body chemistry. While we can’t guarantee it will work on everybody, 95% of those who have tried PITT BALM found it worked for them.

It might be you’ve worn regular antiperspirant deodorant your whole life. We get you are bound to have questions! Natural deodorant works by using a combination of organic ingredients that when applied to your underarms, keep the area protected against bacteria. The main difference is that, unlike a regular deodorant, natural deodorants don’t use synthetic ingredients to get the job done.

What To Expect When Switching To A Natural Deodorant

When you switch to a natural deodorant, you are ceasing to use a whole host of chemicals on your delicate skin that frankly… we can’t even pronounce! As a result, for those first few days your body odour maybe a little more noticeable than usual. But, stick with it! Once the adjustment phase is over, most people find natural deodorant works just as effectively if not more effectively.

Unfortunately, most natural deodorant companies don’t explain this to their customers. So when the adjustment/detox phase kicks in, people assume natural deodorant doesn’t work on them. This couldn’t be further from the truth! Into The Gloss wrote a fantastic article about the subject which is really worth a read.

Is Natural Deodorant Safe?

Absolutely. In fact, as natural deodorant doesn’t contain aluminium salts, it’s considered safer than regular deodorant. When you view any of our products in our online store, we list all the ingredients for you to check before you buy.

Everything we use is instantly recognisable to you the consumer. No nasty, lab-made, synthetic ingredients with PITT BALM. We even make a fragrance free formula too, which is ideal for those who prefer a neutral smell to their deodorant.

Where To Buy Natural Deodorant?

You can purchase PITT BALM directly from our online store, in our storefront, or  they are also available at a number of physical locations across the UK. We’re also proud to be part of the zero-waste movement. All of our products are free from plastic and come in aluminium tins which are easy to both recycle and reuse.
