Don’t buy Deodorant (nor Antiperspirants)

Deodorants only benefit four groups of people: pharmacutical companies, high street retailers, plastic manufacturers and the advertising industry.

The latter is particularly at fault for trying to  persuade us that we all reek.

Most of us don’t smell as much as the advertisers would have us believe. If you’re worried then grab a quick shower or have an underarm wash in the sink.

Deodorants damage the natural bacteria on the skin – something which can do us no good.

Antiperspirants block the sweat glands which are vital components of your skin. Should you really be doing that to your body?

There is also a terrible environmental fallout from both products in terms of product distribution and plastic manufacture and disposal.
