Natural Deodorants For Men

Controlling body odor is a challenge for many, especially for men whose work and lifestyle require him to release a lot of sweat throughout the day. As the world’s concept of image is partially affected by how one smells, no one should neglect taking care of their body odor, especially if you are one who sweats a lot. There are a wide variety of deodorants and antiperspirants available in the market today. However, most of these commercially available products contain ingredients that are not safe or may cause irritations to those who have sensitive skin. Fortunately, there are natural deodorants for men that you may also find reliable when it comes to addressing the body odor challenge. 

Choosing the Best Deodorant for Men


Natural Deodorants

When selecting the best deodorant for men, it is necessary that you pay attention to the advantages and disadvantages that set each deodorant from another. One great consideration is whether to choose a deodorant or an antiperspirant. Also worth considering is the different types of ingredients included in each formulation as not all active ingredients in every product can benefit a user. Choosing the right deodorant is far from just picking the best antiperspirant available on the store’s display stalls or from those that are available online.

Deodorant vs Antiperspirant 

These two types of body odor products may seem one and the same. A deeper research on these two product types will provide you with the differences in the manner of how these products address the challenge. 

An antiperspirant, as the label suggests, controls body odor by preventing tha natural act of sweating by blocking the pores of the skin so that sweat is not able to come out. This makes one stay not only fresher but dryer as well. Without sweat, there is no factor that can lead to the onset of body odor.

A deodorant, on the other hand, prevents body odor by combating the agents (bacteria) that convert sweat to body odor. Applying deodorant does not totally block off the sweat glands or prevent them from releasing sweat. But even if the user continues to perspire, the active ingredients in the formula will help prevent the bacteria from developing on the skin of the user,, thus minimizing the probability of having body odor.

Genesis Fair Trade

So I have recently been to the slums of Kenya and just the other day I got back from the Dominican Republic. [I plan to write more about those travel experiences later]. If there is one thing I can emphasize from my recent travels it is that there are people in these places, and all over the world, who need opportunities for work. Think about it: working gives you something to do during the day, it allows you to provide for your self and your family, it empowers you to achieve your goals. Having sustainable work provides hope for individuals and communities, and ultimately provides more jobs that help stop the cycle of poverty.

Companies like Genesis Fair Trade get this. They’ve been to the indigenous communities in Columbia, Guatemala, Mexico, and Peru and they have seen the poverty and the lack of opportunity that is totally present there && they are doing something about it!

There is serious transformational power behind ethical purchasing!

Genesis Fair Trade has directly partnered with indigenous artisans in Central and South America. They are paying these artisans above-market wages. The goal for them is to reach more individuals and communities and be an instrumental part in helping them rise above the poverty level, allowing them to provide a higher quality of life for themselves and their children. Genesis Fair Trade also invests all other profits back into the communities of the artisans they employ through specific projects providing clean water, giving nourishing food, and empowering through education!

The products are beautiful and truly speak for themselves. I have this Nahaula Corte Clutch made in Guatemala. It is amazing quality and I love the boho look it provides for a simple outfit!
