These deodorants will keep you smelling fresh without harmful ingredients such as aluminum! 

Some ingredients commonly found in deodorants and antiperspirants such as aluminum have been rumored to cause higher rates of Alzheimer’s and breast cancer. While there are varying points of view on the subject, and how safe antiperspirants actually are, there are also plenty of highly effective clean deodorant options available. If you are aiming to decrease the amount of potentially toxic chemicals you are putting in your body, a natural deodorant may be a key hygiene product to add to your skincare collection. Here are our top picks for clean deodorant options.
