Frequently Asked Questions About Natural Deodorant

Natural deodorant has progressed from a clean-beauty enthusiast fringe product to a popular body-care mainstay in recent years. As a result, a plethora of possibilities has evolved. Making the switch to natural deodorant may seem like a difficult and time-consuming thing. That’s why it is completely understandable if you have some questions while making this switch. Here are some of the frequently asked questions and their answers.

  1. Will a natural deodorant stain my clothes?

Ans: No! Purelygreat is a natural deodorant made with water-based ingredients, that’s why it doesn’t stain your clothes. Although you have to avoid over-applying for greater results. And don’t forget, a little amount of natural deodorant goes a long way!

  1. I’m a teenager, is it alright if I use a natural deodorant?

Ans: Yes! Our natural deodorant at Purelygreat is free of chemicals and artificial substances. This makes our natural deodorant suitable for people of all ages. No matter what your age is, it is always a good idea to test a little quantity of product on your skin before going for a complete application to test for any allergic reaction.

  1. I was a regular user of perfumed deodorant. Will switching to natural deodorant make my armpits smell bad?

Ans: To hide smells and halt natural perspiration, chemical deodorants use hazardous metals and harsh chemicals. Natural deodorant, on the other hand, helps to destroy those bacteria that create body odor. And if you prefer a scented deodorant, Purelygreat has a selection of naturally scented products for both men and women. You can choose from the selection of citrus, floral, lavender and even patchouli scents. It’s all up to you!

  1. Do you sweat with natural deodorant?

Ans: Unlike antiperspirants, which obstruct the sweat glands, natural deodorants work best by letting your skin breathe, giving you the peace of mind that your body is protected while also enabling it to operate normally.

  1. What is the best way to keep the natural deodorant from sweating?

Ans: Natural deodorant enables your body to work normally, so you may feel as if you are "sweating" more than when you were using your prior antiperspirant. However, because your underarms have had a chance to cleanse, your body odor will shift and you will become less conscious of any uncomfortable perspiration or body odor.

  1. What occurs when your armpits are detoxed?

Ans: Toxins, chemicals, and other nasty stuff will flow from previously closed pores and sweat ducts when you detox your armpits. You will feel self-conscious and smell, but if you continue with it, you will notice a significant improvement and your body will be much healthier.

  1. Why are my armpits turning red after using a natural deodorant?

Ans: Your armpits becoming red after applying a natural deodorant might be due to an allergic response to one of the ingredients, such as bicarbonate of soda, which can cause minor irritation to highly sensitive skin types. You may have a mild sensitivity to bicarbonate of soda, which is used in many natural deodorant solutions and can produce a mild rash in those with sensitive skin.

Final Takeaway on Natural Deodorant:

A detox is a great option when you're ready to switch to a natural deodorant. By removing toxins from the body and underarms, switching from chemical deodorant to natural deodorant becomes easier and faster. Natural deodorants are different from antiperspirants and deodorants. In fact, the application is unique in its kind. For best results, dip your index and middle fingers into the cream and then apply it to your armpits. No special applicator is needed, only about a pea-sized amount is required.

Then, you'll want to stay active throughout the day. Apply natural deodorant after showering or bathing. However, to avoid irritation, do not use it right after shaving. The feel of a natural deodorant may differ from that of regular deodorant. But it shouldn't be sticky. In this case, you may be using too much deodorant. Simply use a damp cloth to remove excess deodorant.

Finally, you'll notice that the closer you get to the end of the deodorant container, the drier it gets. This is completely normal! There are no chemical preservatives in natural deodorants. When the deodorant begins to dry, add a few drops of water and stir it in.

So, now that you know everything there is to know about natural deodorant, making the transition should be simple and a good step toward embracing a natural lifestyle!
