DIY: NATURAL DEODORANT


One of our best selling products is our all-natural Armpit Armor Deodorant. Drug-store deodorants and anti-perspirants can be loaded with chemicals that cause skin irritation and other health problems, as well as fouling up our planet in their production.

Instead of using aluminum to plug up your pores and prevent sweat from brewing a stink in your pits, natural deodorants use ingredients like activated charcoal to absorb sweat and prevent B.O.

Here's natural products guru Renee to take you through the process of making a simple deodorant at home.
