Natural deodorants are a great solution if you care about your health and also about the planet.
We love the idea of breaking up with the aluminium salts, as they are said to be found in breast cancer cells (and also clog the natural way your body regulates itself).
With this post we start a new series – Matíz Loves #matizloves where we will share with you our sustainable, zero or less-waste inspirations of packaging from brands all over the world.
OUR TOP 5 FAVOURITE SOLUTIONS:
1 · Alum stone
The perfect zero-waste, the alum stone is a potassium-rich mineral extracted from a rock. It is economical as the stone dissolves very slowly. Its lifetime lasts over several years. The stone is natural and fragrance free , it destroys the bacteria responsible for bad odours.
