Local Aluminium-free Deodorants to Try Now


With the consumer climate being more mindful with what they put on their bodies—the concern of aluminum in deodorant has been a continuous debate regarding the safety of the ingredient and because of this, it has birthed a wave of cleaner, more natural alternatives.


Deodorants have come a long way in terms of creating cleaner, safer formulations—that do indeed work, and we’re happy to see our local beauty industry take on the challenge to create aluminum-free options that will have you smelling fresh for hours and keep perspiration at bay, Here, we round up some of our top picks for homegrown aluminum-free deodorant options.

Unsure of which fragrance you’d like best? We adore the fact that Joi offers a mini bundle set of all their deodorants as an introductory palette to their many options. These minis also make for the perfect travel companion and we can’t wait to bring them on board once we’re allowed to. We’re fans of their sensitive-skin option as it is baking-soda free and boosted with healthy magnesium, probiotics and chamomile essential oil. They’ve also integrated a subscription service available on their website, which means you’ll never have to worry about your deodorant running out!
