If you’re looking for a natural alternative to deoderants, the search can be quite frustrating. In a nut-shell, there isn’t really much to choose from that actually does the job as well as chemically powered deoderants, but with a natural base. Aesop Deoderant is a little different though, because it uses eleven essential oils, including tea-tree, clove and lemongrass to neutralise odours. Instead of using Aluminium, Aesop have replaced it with zinc ricinoleate to make an effective odour absorbing formula with none of the nasties but all of the efficacy. The scent is super-fresh; lemony and green and it comes in a spray format: ideal for sunshine filled days when the heat is well and truly on!
