For redheads, everything that goes on or near our sensitive skin needs to be considered carefully to prevent any adverse effects. Deodorants themselves serve the purpose of reducing the smell when we sweat. Antiperspirants are within many deodorants to serve as sweat control while still reducing the smell. The issue with antiperspirants is that their main active ingredient to reduce sweat is aluminum. Aluminum is linked to harmful effects. Although the effects are not all scientifically proven, it’s best to be safe and use aluminum-free deodorant options.
Here are more ‘Redhead Friendly’ approved natural deodorants that actually work:
This brand’s gentle deodorant line offers four softly scented deodorants to help you through the day. They are not only aluminum-free but also dye, parabens, and phthalates free to live up to the “gentle” name.
They have three deodorant lines and a wide variety to choose from. While all three lines are aluminum-free, the Sensitive Stick Formula (my favorite) has magnesium, and the Jar Formula has a base of Shea Butter.
While this brand does offer antiperspirants with aluminum in its men’s line, the Prebiotic Line, Natural Strength Line, Long-Lasting Line, Original Care Line, and Wicked Cool Line are all aluminum-free. All ingredients and their purposes are easily accessible with further information on specific ingredients just a click away.
These products offer a wide array of both Sensitive Skin and Organic options. There is also the choice of packs one of travel size deodorants, one of their summer collection, and the thirds of their best sellers.
