While solid toiletries have really taken off in the past few years, solid deodorant seems to find itself a bit behind things like solid shampoo bars and body washes. Somehow making a transition to using deodorant seems like a bigger step than swapping other toiletries. Despite this, solid deodorant is a wonderful alternative to the more traditional roll ons and sprays, especially when it comes to travel. Not only are solid alternatives often plastic free and kinder to the earth, they can travel in hand luggage without restriction, and there’s no chance of any leaks.
Deodorant balms tend to come in glass jars of varying sizes and are easy to use. Simply scoop a pea sized lump of balm out of the jar with your finger and massage it into your armpit. There are plenty of different options out there, so there will be something for you regardless of your budget and preferences on scent. If you are unsure of where to start your search for deodorant balm, take a look at the options available from Pure Purpose.
Naked deodorant bars look just like a bar of soap, and almost always come totally plastic free. Give your armpits a couple of swipes with your deodorant bar and you’ll stay smelling fresh all day. Earth Conscious bars are a great starting point. They last for a surprisingly long time, are very easy to apply, come in a range of delightful scents, and are very affordable.
