We all know Malaysia is notorious for being hot and humid all year long. On the one hand, we can save ourselves the dry weather and winter cold months, but on the other hand, hot and humid almost always equals moist pits and body odour. It's 100% natural to sweat; it is our body's way of expelling heat to bring down our internal body temperature to an optimal level. Now, sweat itself is odourless. The problem is the odour causing bacteria that delves on a person's skin. These bacteria break down protein molecules in our sweat and produce body odour as a result.
As the title suggests, natural deodorants may just be your solution to combat the Malaysian weather. They exist in liquid, cream, and even powder form to absorb moisture from your underarms and keep you feeling dry and odourless all day long. If you have been relying on antiperspirants, it's time to get rid of them now. Not only do they contain harmful chemicals that may potentially trigger an allergic reaction, but they also leave stubborn stains on your clothes. Wave goodbye to uncomfortable wetness, bad odour, musty pits, and say hello to 24/7 freshness and clean clothes.
What exactly is so "natural" about natural deodorants?
It all comes down to its ingredients list. For antiperspirants, key ingredients may include aluminium, baking soda, parabens and fragrances and dyes that can be detrimental to the skin. They clog your pores, leave some kind of white residue on the underarm, and may even cause irritation to the skin. It's bad news all around. Natural deodorants, though, are formulated with natural ingredients that are beneficial to the skin, such as shea butter, coconut oil, mineral salts, et cetera. Natural deodorants work by re-balancing bacterial and perspiration levels to cease the overproduction of odour causing bacteria. With ingredients like these, it's safe to say that they are perfect for those with sensitive skin!
