Isn’t it strange? As parents most of us are very cautious about the skincare we use on our children, yet we don’t look after ourselves nearly as well. With more and more serious concerns being raised about the potentially harmful ingredients in regular skincare products it is important to take a closer look at your bathroom cupboard and remove the nasties, skin-safe should be the norm for there whole family.
A super simple ‘nasties-to-natural’ swap is replacing your ordinary deodorant (a must in the sticky Australian weather) for an all natural alternative. Vegan-friendly skincare label MyAura ticks all the boxes with their gentle All Natural Roll-On Deodorant Stick, allowing you to enjoy that nice fresh feeling without the fear of applying something scary directly onto your skin.
The MyAura Organics Deodorant Stick (RRP $9) is completely free from worrying contents like aluminium, zinc, alcohol and synthetic fragrances and instead contains skin-safe aloe vera, Vitamin E, Shea butter and essential oils. Not only will your skin thank you for this healthy swap, the environment will too as MyAura products are cruelty-free, free from palm oil and produced in an eco-responsible facility using environmentally low-impact raw materials.
I recently ditched my regular aerosol anti-perspirant for MyAura and was pleasantly surprised. I will admit that it takes a bit of getting used to: When you have always relied on that sharp tingly sensation of a deodorant spray to make you feel fresh, a gentle roll of the MyAura Deodorant Stick initially may not feel like it will do the trick. However I really loved the smell and it almost felt as if I applied a nourishing cream, so I continued using it and (while on hot days you may want to apply it more than once) it definitely provided a nice clean feel. Remember that you only need a thin layer, as too much may result in a clumping (not that much of a problem as you can just rub it into your skin).
The MyAura Organics All Natural Deodorant is currently available in four delightful fragrances: Bergamot Lime Coconut, Rose Vanilla Jasmine, Lavender Sage Rosemary and Ylang Ylang Rose. You can find the range on the shelf of your local Coles or Woolworths supermarket, at selected pharmacies and online, how convenient is that?
