I have been trying out some new deodorants lately and figured I would share with you guys all the ones I have found to be really great! In an effort to be more eco friendly I am participating in Plastic Free July and therefore this deodorant is just that, plastic free, cruelty free and vegan friendly.
The one I have been loving most of late is the Grapefruit and Lemon Deodorant from Earth Conscious. This smells delicious (good enough too eat!) They are only £7.00 a time which is really reasonable for an eco friendly brand and they come in both stick and tin form. The deodorants from Earth Conscious are all aluminium free, paragon free and are free from toxins and are also 100% natural. I find the stick form to be a great work bag/travel companion, ideal for on the go to not have to apply with fingers, whereas I like the tin for home use when I can spend that extra few seconds rubbing my deodorant in for maximum effect. I thought that this would be a little messy and inconvenient however its incredibly easy to use and even if I scoop a bit much it can be used as a moisturiser for your whole body anyway so I would rub any extra into the areas I need a bit of extra hydration!
The packaging is either a tin or a cardboard tube, and the deodorant itself melts in the fingertips and can be applied with the fingers or directly from the tube. 10p of every sale even goes towards marine conservation which is amazing! The brand itself is incredibly thoughtful in regards to their impact on our earth and many lifeforms on it and therefore they are as eco friendly as possible. There packaging contains no plastic and is all recyclable. The cardboard stick deodorant packaging is biodegradable and recyclable and the tin is aluminium which is easily recycled or can be reused for Nik naks, such as booby pins, seriously they all just disaster don’t they?
Although I am all for the plastic free bandwagon first and foremost I look to only purchase from cruelty free and vegan friendly brands and Earth Conscious certainly fit this. It is important to me to only be putting natural products onto my skin or into my body feeding it to be the best that it could be. Deodorant has always been a product that I have found hard to master as a vegan so I am so glad to have found this brand who are not only animal friend but earth friendly too! If you are in the market for a new deodorant then check these out, you won’t regret it!
