There are many an anecdote about making the switch to an aluminium-free deodorant after using an anti-perspirant. But, in reality it doesn't have to be anything scary - as long as you're prepared for the detox process.
While you'll often hear people claiming that 'natural deodorants just don't work for me', this is rarely the case. In reality, they just didn't give their body long enough to work through the transition from aluminium to aluminium-free. Natural deodorants aren't making you smell worse, they are just adjusting the levels of odour-causing bacteria in your underarm for the better.
Remember, it's not your sweat that smells, it's the bacteria living in your armpits.
WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN SWITCHING TO A NATURAL DEODORANT
1. MORE SWEAT TO BEGIN WITH
You'll probably sweat more to begin with. This is just your body's way of getting rid of the toxins and the aluminium that is plugging your pores
2. YOU'LL SWEAT OUT THE TOXINS
Your sweat may be a little more pungent during the initial transition process, but it's NOT PERMANENT and will soon give way to odourless sweat. The levels of odour-causing bacteria will rise, but will soon start to fall again, meaning you'll have no need for pore-blocking ingredients
