How to use - Pop a pea-sized amount of deodorant onto the end of your finger - Apply to the underarm, smoothing across the whole armpit area
The active deodorant has a semi solid, smooth balm-like consistency. It will melt in the heat (and go more solid when cold). If it does turn a bit too 'loose' give it a shake or stir it, and place in the fridge. Best stored in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight.
Right for you? The active deodorant contains sodium bicarbonate, a natural deodoriser. Some people can experience skin irritation in the form of itchiness due to variations in the bodies PH levels. I would recommend that you use the active alongside the gentle deodorant (no sodium bicarbonate so best for sensitive skin) or clean deodorant (a small amount of sodium bicarbonate and suits most people), using one of the latter for everyday use and saving the active for particularly busy, demanding days. This will help to prevent irriation. It's a good idea to do a spot check first.
Guvnor's Note: I am a convert to this hugely important deodorant. It works superbly well and it is a relief to be wearing something natural under my arms. The nourishing formula allows my pores to breath without my body absorbing hormone disrupting chemicals into my body. You can read my blog review here.
End of Life The deodorant is packaged in a glass container with a metal lid, both of which are widely recyclable (keep the lid on the jar when placing into recycling).
Customer Comments: 'I absolutely adore the natural deodorant. Being honest I thought that it probably wouldn't be as effective as my usual deodorant but I was amazed at it's performance. So much better than the product I was using before. Love the feel of it on my skin and the scent is fresh and very natural. '(Keeley)
'I recently bought the new Natural Deodorant in Tangerine. I was skeptical as to whether it would work but was willing to give it a go, not only for me but also for my 8 year old - who can get a bit whiffy during PE. I had tried other 'tweenager' products with limited success. However, this deodorant works brilliantly! I've officially converted. Thank you.'(Sarah)
'I absolutely love this natural deodorant - if I'm honest I bought it on a whim, not expecting it to work. I've tried all sorts of natural deodorants in the past but just not found them at all effective. Incredibly surprised at just how effective this is - lovely fresh subtle scents. Just placed my second order and I honestly can't imagine reverting back to anything else - praise indeed! Happy customer, thank you.'(Jo)
'1 week and 3 workouts later and I'm so thrilled I have finally found a natural deodorant that works. I bought the Orange and Bergamot Active Deodorant Balm after some playground chat and Lucy's honest blog and what a revelation - it's brilliant, smells lovely and really works. Plus it's not filled with harmful chemicals. Thank you Lucy and The Wise House for another well researched and brilliant product!'(Emma)
'When I first shopped on the Wise House website I was looking for Christmas presents and found lots of lovely gifts for my friends; but the purchase I was most eager to receive was the Active Deodorant Balm. I had made a conscious decision to stop using chemical deodorant a year or so ago but was finding hard to find one that worked as an antiperspirant. I lost a very close friend recently to breast cancer and wanted to find a product that my teenage daughter could use that didn't leave her (or me) with 'sweaty pits'. I've held off reviewing the balms until we'd put then to the test as, although its really good value it's still more expensive that a regular roll on (but not more expensive than Neal's Yard spray or Weleda natural deodorant). Anyhow it's brilliant, I bought the large jar for £11 in both the Active and Clean balms and have been using it since the beginning of December and I'd say I've got a couple of weeks left in that pot. I've been using the Active and my daughter the Clean. We both love them; I've even gifted little pots of it!
I love the aroma of the orange and bergamot; you only need to use a pea size amount of the balm under each arm and it works a treat. It's a really effective natural deodorant/antiperspirant I feel confident come the hot weather I will not be suffering from 'hippy sweat patches'.'(Clare)
About The Natural Deodorant Company The Natural Deodorant Co is a small company founded by Laurie Sanders and based in Chelmsford, UK. Laurie's inspiration came from switching to organic food - in researching the effects of what we put into our body, she also discovered that our bodies absorb more than 60% of what we apply to our skin.
In detoxing her skincare regime, Laurie tried natural deodorant alternatives, but couldn't find anything that worked. Having worked in the beauty industry herself, and proving that necessity is indeed the mother of all invention, Laurie worked her socks off to create the 'perfect' natural deodorant, trialling a wide range of ingredients and quantities before getting it just right.
