Our Deodorants are made with mild but effective ingredients. If you are trying to avoid harsh chemicals, these are for you. These deodorants will not stop perspiration, but they will stop all odor. The ingredient that stops odor is zinc oxide. Zinc is an ingredient that our bodies use to keep us healthy. Some people even take zinc supplements. It kills bacteria that cause odor when we sweat. We also do not use artificial fragrance. Our fragrance is entirely from essential oils from plants. Choose which essential oils you prefer; Pine, Lavender-Sage or Wild Geranium.
