Let us start by asking the question; Why do you use deodorant? If the answer is to prevent smell, keep reading. If the answer is to stop sweating; please, lend us a few minutes of your time and read on.
If your answer was to stop sweating, go grab your bottle of deodorant and scan the ingredients list. Spotted Aluminium yet?
You'll find Aluminium in most non-natural deodorants and all antiperspirants.
It prevents you from sweating. Now, I’m not sure about you; but for us there's nothing worse than the daunting feeling of knowing you’re going to be a sweaty, smelly mess in a non-ideal scenario (e.g. hot date, oral presentation, job interview and so the list goes on….) which is why a number of us jumped on board the antiperspirant train once it came to town.
So, what’s the issue?
Well, Aluminium works by blocking our pores and sweat glands with little Aluminium salts. The catch? Our bodies are naturally designed to sweat and whether it’s on Instagram or not- it’s not nice being blocked!
What’s your point?
Do you know what actually causes body odour? If sweat comes to your mind, we'll forgive you for being mistaken, it's a common misconception!
Body odour is actually caused by bacteria, sweat is odourless!
So, what's the solution?
A handy dandy roll on bottle from A bit Hippy, of course! Our natural deodorants are formulated with Milk of Magnesia and a unique combination of essential oils. Rather than blocking your pores with pesky Aluminium, our formula works to control bacteria that causes body odour. Choose from Bergamot, a floral, earthy scent with hints of citrus or Patchouli, citrus with notes of lavender and geranium.
Changing what you know works can be scary. But trust us, once you’ve converted, you’ll wonder why you didn’t do it sooner! Take the leap, leave the chemicals behind and enter the world of Aluminium-free armpits!
Note: Be mindful! After a lifetime of blockage, it might take a fortnight or so for your armpits to completely detoxify and for our Aluminium-free Deodorant to start working to its full potential. The first two weeks will be the most challenging, as you might experience a bit of body odour. We encourage you to push through and set your armpits free!
