Most of us are aware of environmental issues and would prefer to buy greener products; other people worry about toxification of not just the planet but also ourselves.

Both sets of consumers are constantly on the hunt for environmentally friendly or at least friendlier beauty products.

In most cases these aren’t hard to find but when it comes to anti-perspirants things get trickier. Fortunately there are some deodorants that do their job while being kind to the environment and our underarms.

Latvian eco-brand Mádara is an exciting new brand that still has some lab work to do on its skincare but their EcoDeo Herbal Deodorant is a true saviour on hot days. It has a mild, grassy scent and keeps you fresh all day long.

Non-organic brand Aesop uses plant-based ingredients and non-botanical elements such as antioxidants to create high-end skin and hair care.

Aesop has a spray deodorant (pictured top left) which has received rave reviews from the blogosphere: the imaginatively named Deodorant is aluminium free and wonderfully fragrant thanks to essential oils such as vetiver root and patchouli.

Even more wonderfully fragrant is aluminium and alcohol-free stick deodorant Eucalyptus Deodorant from Malin+Goetz (pictured right).

A definite favourite for both him and her and not only is it yummy enough to eat, it keeps you dry forever too. © COVER MEDIA
