I've long been fascinated by the idea of crystal deodorants which contain no aluminium-based compounds, the pore-plugging ingredient used in anti-perspirants to temporarily stop the flow of sweat to the skin's surface.
I've recently started running (well, power walking/light jogging!!) so I was a little nervous about putting my usual 48-hour full-on protection anti-perspirant aside to try a more natural approach!
What's different about this Roll-On Crystal Deodorant from Faith in Nature is that it contains no aluminium chlorohydrates, parabens or toxins but it claims to eliminate odour causing bacteria without blocking or constricting pores. So in other words, you still produce sweat, but without the nasty niffs, or chemical nasties!
Does it work? Absolutely! I've been testing the Organic Aloe Vera & Green Tea (for men and women) and it's really, really good. I enjoy the virtuous feeling I get when applying a naturally-derived product but best of all, it's 100% effective at what it sets out to do.
Normally I'd expect such natural products to come with a slightly steeper price tag to their chemical-based counterparts, but this is a bargain at £3.89. Refills are also available at £2.99 so you're not only saving pennies, you're protecting the environment too.
The Faith in Nature range also contains some beautiful affordable hair care, bath and shower products, soaps, handwashes and skincare, all formulated with naturally-sourced ingredients and without artificial colours or perfumes. Click here to find out more: Faith in Nature
