Do you want to make the change to a natural, chemical free, vegan deodorant? Here are the best ones our artisans have to offer
With more and more people making the change to a vegan lifestyle, beauty products are usually top of the list of things to consider just after food and diet habits and there is no doubt deodorant is one of those products most of us will us every day. Unfortunately most of the traditional deodorants you find in the shops from big brands are not suitable for vegans as they often contain animal-derived ingredients such as beeswax or squalene. You can read our guide to animal ingredients in beauty products here. In addition to this, many of these big brands still test on animals when they sell to countries that require so by law.
It can be difficult to figure out whether your favourite deodorant is vegan and cruelty free if the labelling is not clear and that's not all we should be worried about. Even if you are not vegan you may still be concerned about the amount of chemicals that traditional deodorants contain. Aluminium, parabens, phthalates and a long list of chemicals that are harmful to the environment and our health.
Luckily, there are some brands out there that work hard to provide a vegan, natural alternative to traditional deodorants. As always at Vegana Marketplace, we think that artisan is better and here we show you some of the best vegan deodorants made in small batches in the UK.
