Black Chicken’s Axilla Deoderant Paste is a best seller in nearly every natural and organic beauty store. I’ve been using it myself for close to two years and recently persuaded Dave away from his favourite spray deodorant to try it out as well. Fortunately he likes it!
It’s a strange concept smearing paste under your arms, and one which takes a little getting used to. I’ve had to learn to not touch my clothes before I’ve washed the paste off my hands and also because it’s not an antiperspirant, you will still sweat, as you should.
Unusual application aside, it’s the best natural deodorant I have used and even when new products land on my desk to trial, I keep going back to Black Chicken as my everyday deodorant.
Why you should be using a natural deodorant
Most mainstream deodorants are formulated with aluminium based compounds and these compounds form a temporary “plug” within the sweat duct that stops the flow of sweat to the skin’s surface and prevent the release of perspiration.
They also contain parabens which are a type of preservative known to mimic estrogen in the bodies cells, synthetic chemicals such as Propylene Glycol, commonly found in antifreeze and Triclosans which are bad for the environment and can contain sulfates and skin stripping detergents. All the things you do not want to be putting under your arms.
How the Axilla Paste works
“The Axilla Deodorant Paste contains natural ingredients rich in lipids and fatty acids (essential for healthy cells) that actually strengthen your sensitive skin. That means it helps to improve your skin’s ability to protect it from things that may cause irritation. We’ve also removed the bi-carb soda and replaced it with remedies that neutralise odour, absorb moisture and replenish skin tissue.”
