A Natural Deodorant Review – My 2 Must Haves for that first detox! Posted on 13/11/2017

lavenderFor those of you who have tried to use a natural deodorant, you’ll agree that that’s easier said than done – a lot of them don’t work. So, in a bid to preserve the wellbeing of our friends and family; I to set out to create my very own ‘natural deodorant review’. I tested 11 deodorants in total, 2 of which I would consider to be my top picks (yes, I’m that picky).

Before I jump in, I want to let you know that I used the EWG Skin Deep website to rate these products and I have shared their results below. This is a fantastic resource for everyone trying to understand what’s really in their beauty products and what effects it may be having on your health.


#1 Black Chicken Axilla Deodorant Paste

Natural Deodorant Black Chicken An Apple a Day BlogThis is the best natural deodorant on the market. I have to admit that I was a bit hesitant; but once you get over the fact that you have to apply a paste to your underarms (seriously, it’s nowhere near as bad as you might think), you’re good to go. Lasts all day without re-application. Even the husband loves it.

NOTE: This is the ONLY one I recommend to my patients during their transition off store-bought varieties to more natural options. You will sweat, that’s part of the detox reaction, but you won’t smell 🙂 Trust me!

Available from Nourished Life. 
RRP: $18.50


Moogoo - AN APPLE A DAY - ALYSE COCLIFF#2 Moogoo Fresh Cream Deodorant 

I was invited by the team at MooGoo to trial their deodorant over the course of 30 days and I was honestly, blown away. For all those looking for more of a ‘traditional’ roll-on, this one is for you. Ranking 1/10 on the EWG Skin Deep website (meaning very low hazard), this product is free from aluminium, parabens and all other nasties. It’s also a lot cheaper than all of the other natural deodorant brands, which is definitely a plus!

You can buy it from all good health food stores or their online store here.

I’d personally use this one after you’ve finished your detox on the Black Chicken above 🙂

RRP $8.95.

Really want to try the black chicken version – do you know anywhere on the Gold Coast that stocks it in store?

I make my own and it works better than anything I’ve tried (and I’ve now tried 10+ natural deodorants). Raw ingredients are but can be played around with depending if you have a reaction to any of them: coconut oil shea butter beeswax bicarb soda kaolin clay arrowroot powder or corn starch essential oils of your choice I tend to play around with the amounts of each. Even just bicarb and coconut oil works amazingly well but I find that the beeswax is non-negotiable for me as it keeps me dry all day. I find my recipe is much better… Read more »

[…] Again, reducing our chemical exposure is paramount. Antiperspirant deodorants work by aluminium salts blocking sweat glands and deodorants work by affecting the bacterial balance of the skin (read more about this here). Either way, the chemicals used in conventional products are questionable and again, something I look to reduce in my patients lives ASAP. There are a number of wonderful natural deodorants out there, you can read all about my top 5 natural deodorants here.  […]
