At Susanne Kaufmann, we believe in the power of plants and the natural active ingredients they provide. We use these active ingredients at their highest possible dosage for maximum efficacy while still being highly effective and safe for our skin. The same applies for our deodorants. Instead of relying on aluminium salts, known to clogs pores and block the flow of sweat, our deodorants contain a mineral complex of active ingredients which neutralises odour-forming bacteria without closing the pores – allowing the skin to breath freely. To make things simple, we have put together a list of the most pressing Q&A’s when it comes to natural deodorants to help you in your natural skincare journey.
1. What ingredients can be found in our deodorants? What are their benefits?
Our Deodorant Stick is a gentle and effective choice of deodorant, containing extracts of linden blossom known for its skin-friendly and calming properties, this soothing ingredient helps to reduce redness and has an anti-inflammatory effect on the skin. The plant-based alcohol found in our Deodorant Stick has a cooling effect and provides antibacterial protection while an active mineral substance neutralises odour-forming bacteria.
The Deodorant Stick Line M for men, also free from aluminium, parabens and all artificial preservatives and colorants, is an effective mineral based deodorant. Like our Deodorant Stick, it contains the same active mineral substance which works to neutralise odour-forming bacteria - this means the more you sweat, the more active the ingredients become. It also contains witch hazel extract to relieve any inflammation and soothe the skin.
2. What ingredients should you avoid in your deodorant at all costs and why?
All of our deodorant sticks are free from aluminium, parabens and all artificial preservatives and colorants. Aluminium salts are known to clog the pores and block the flow of sweat which prevents the body’s natural detoxification processes. Parabens are chemical preservatives that prevent bacteria growth and increase product shelf life. However, the long-term effects of using such chemicals have been proven to cause skin allergies on the skin, irritation, eczema and rosacea. Colourants, similar to aluminium salts are also known to block the pores leading to a greater risk of acne, causing further irritation.
3. What are the benefits of using a stick deodorant?
The creamy, compact consistency of our Deodorant sticks allow for easy ‘tug free’ application for long-lasting protection against body odour while allowing the skin to breathe. Our deodorant sticks are also the perfect travel companion, especially for long summer drives and long flights.
