Are you a vegan, vegetarian, or simply someone interested in using products that are not tested on animals looking to find a deodorant that will fill this need as well as match your personal body chemistry? Cruelty free deodorants, anti-perspirants and deodorant stones exist if you know where to find them. You may also choose to make your own deodorant at home. This is not only a simple way to ensure your deodorant is cruelty free, but it is a cost effective option as well.
Many of today’s available cruelty free deodorants are available at your local grocery store, retail store, or pharmacy. You may also purchase them online. They have become rather popular in recent years so they are not difficult to find. The key is to know which products do not test on animals and then finding the one that works for you.
Cruelty Free Antiperspirants are made by the following companies: Almay and Certain Dri.
Cruelty Free Deodorants are made by Jason, Nature’s Gate, and Tom’s of Maine.
Cruelty Free Deodorant Stones are made by: Body Crystal, Crystal Body Deodorant, Deodorant Stones of America, and L’OCCITANE.
Alternatively, you can make your own deodorant by mixing the following essential oils and then massaging the mixture under your arms. Simply combine the following for ingredients: 1 drop essential rose oil, 6 drops jojoba oil, 2 drops essential lavender oil, and 1 drop essential vanilla oil.
Finding the product that works for you may involve a bit of trial and error. Identify your body’s needs and then choose which product you want to try: antiperspirants are chemicals that work to reduce sweating; deodorants do not prevent sweating, instead they cover the smell created by sweating; and deodorant stones are made up of mineral salts that control odor.
