Natural Deodorant Balm in a tin
Wanderlightly Natural Deodorant Balm is handmade in Australia in small batches and is free from toxins, aluminium, parabens, dyes, synthetic fragrances, talcs, mineral oils and other nasties. Designed to help neutralise odours while allowing you to perspire (which after all is an important way for the body to release toxins).
Why do we love it?
Its full of divine natural ingredients:
- Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) neutralises odours.
- Organic tapioca flour helps absorb moisture and add a silky smooth feel on application.
- Organic coconut oil is moisturising, antibacterial and soothing.
- Australian Tea Tree oil (Melaleuca Alternifolia) is a powerful antiseptic with wonderful healing properties that helps keep bacteria at bay.
- Organic unrefined shea butter (Butyrospermum Parkii) helps protect the delicate underarm area.
- Candelilla wax*, a vegan alternative to beeswax derived from the leaves of the small Candelilla shrub, helps to provide a protective moisture barrier to the skin allowing optimal healing to take place.
- Essential oils add a delicious scent to not only neutralise odour but uplift the spirit.
Wanderlightly deodorants are packaged plastic free in fully reusable and recyclable tins meaning that they are light and easy to carry with you to work, the gym and when travelling. The tins themselves are shipped plastic free all the way from the original producer to you.
Due to the nature of coconut oil, the balm will solidify in cooler climates and during winter (below 25C). It is best applied when soft to avoid rubbing and irritation.
Take a pea size amount, warm in hands and gently apply to dry skin.
It will form a silky paste that dries and disappears on application.
Avoid applying to freshly shaven skin as it may cause irritation and discontinue use if any irritation occurs.
Some people can find baking soda irritating so patch test on wrist first if you have any concerns.
* Note: the Minty Fresh Deodorant contains Organic Beeswax. All other variations are now vegan.
