The skin is the largest organ in the human body. It is like the biggest outfit that you could possibly wear. It covers everything from the top of the head to the soles of the feet. It is also used to determine beauty. If you have beautiful skin then you are to be admired. However, the skin can also be a source of problems in the body. One very common problem that many people suffer from is body odor. Controlling body odor is not such a simple task.

Challenges in keeping the body fresh

Did you know that sweat does not have any smell? You are probably having a hard time believing that but it is the case. The only reason why you smell the odor emitted by sweat is because of the bacteria that has set up shop in various parts of the body. The bacteria break down the sweat and during this process body odor is formed and many people struggle with it. To keep this under control people buy deodorants. Deodorants usually kill these bacteria and bring in a fragrant scent of their own.

This is where all the problems come in. Some deodorants do not last. You have to keep spraying yourself every few hours to keep your body fresh. They are not exactly the best. Another problem is that some of these deodorants contain toxic ingredients, such as aluminum chloride and aluminum zirconium. You really do not want these accumulating in your body. They are among the suspected culprits that are causing all sorts of cancers in the body.

There is also the issue of scents. There are people who just cannot stand certain smells. These scents might either offset an asthmatic attack or cause nasal irritation. This is where a natural deodorant comes in to save the day. Products like Vi-Tae’s 100% Confident, which has been touted to be the best deodorant for women is all-natural.

What is in natural deodorants?

Different brands have different recipes for their natural deodorants. However, one thing that is prominently missing is those fancy scents that are characteristic of deodorants. Some might have a slight tint of smell arising from the essential oils that are added to make the product. Organic essential oils have a naturally sweet smell- a majority of them. There are some that have a very faint scent. With these, at least the issue of scents that cause chest congestion is put under control.

Organic essential oils do more than just controlling scent; they are also responsible for controlling the bacteria that causes body odor. Coupled with marine plant extracts, oils play a big role in controlling the number of the bacteria causing damage to your skin. Together, these two ingredients are also able to keep the skin nourished and hydrated. A characteristic of many deodorants is artificial additives, which have a high affinity for water. These ingredients suck water from the skin, which damages it.

This is not the case with natural deodorants. They are able to keep the skin nourished and healthy for long periods of time. At the same time, they are able to keep the body extremely fresh. They can be used on any part of the body without causing any kind of damage or irritation.
