Why Use Natural Deodorant?

You’ve probably heard a lot of talk lately about natural deodorant. The real question is, why use natural deodorant? What is the benefit of doing so.

Natural deodorant is just that – made from natural ingredients. The benefit of using natural deodorant is it puts you back in control of the ingredients you are exposing yourself to. Typical store-bought deodorant is generally made in-bulk,  in a factory. They often contain a large number of chemicals and undergoes many different processes. One has to ask; How can that be good for us?

In stark contrast, our natural deodorants are made by hand in small batches. We care about the quality of the finished product that goes out to you, the customer. If you have not tried PITT BALM or any other natural deodorant yet, it’s time to let you know what the fuss is about. After all,  natural deodorant is what we do.

So, here’s everything you need to know.

Our Natural Deodorant Is Aluminium Free

First we should clarify that we we speak about aluminium, what we are referring to is Aluminium chlorohydrate, a group of specific aluminium salts often used in cosmetics as an antiperspirant. Not the stuff you wrap your sandwiches in.

We have written a long piece about Aluminium that you should probably read when you get a chance. The long story short is this. Although we aren’t in the business of making scientific claims, one thing we believe in, is that your cosmetic products do not always need to be complicated.  If you are applying it to your skin on a daily basis, you should consider what chemicals are in it.

Natural deodorants, on the other hand, do not have this problem. All PITT BALM products are aluminium free and contain only natural, organic ingredients that are clearly listed (and recognisable!) on each tin. This keeps you informed and puts you back in control.

Eco-Friendly Deodorant VS Regular Deodorant

There are a number of things we can do to help the environment. Whether it be remembering to bring your bag-for-life to the supermarket. Using a refillable coffee cup. Or using cosmetic products that don’t contain plastic products in them. PITT BALM is extremely proud of the efforts we make in being as green as possible. We do not use any plastic packaging nor do we use plastic containers.

When it comes to doing your bit for the environment, avoiding plastic and waste is huge. Yet, most regular deodorants containers are made from plastic. The containers usually go straight to landfill after use. The more each of us can reduce the amount of waste we generate the better.

The biggest influence we have is that we are proud to be the only truly zero waste deodorant company in the UK and possibly Europe. One you purchase from us you can visit any of our Zero Waste Retailers to fill your containers back up again. Removing the need to throw you pots away and buy new ones.


Where Can I Buy Natural Deodorant?

We sell our PITT BALM natural deodorant at a number of stockists across the UK. We also have an online store making it easy and convenient to order your natural deodorant. What’s great is you can choose from 5 different varieties including an unscented version. You have the choice of a 2 Pack or a 4 Pack with your order, making it ideal to use at home and on the go. If you’ve been thinking of making the switch from regular deodorant, PITT BALM makes it straightforward, simple and best of all…natural!
