Did you ever wonder, “Should I make the switch to natural deodorant?” It seems like everyone is trying to ditch antiperspirant, detox their pits and make the swap to a natural deodorant for women. Real talk: we had a lot of questions… so we partnered with Schmidt’s Naturals to chat with founder Jaime Schmidt about the biggest myths around natural deodorant and how to find one that really works for you.

And what better timing!? Since Schmidt’s was acquired by Unilever in 2017, the clean deo brand is quickly rolling out to almost every mass-market retailer in Canada – and they just announced a new partnership with Justin Bieber (!!) for a collab called Here + Now, expected to launch later in 2019.

A total expert in her field, Jaime debunks a ton of myths flying around out there, like do you really need to detox your pits? And does your body get “used to” natural deodorants? And does using pH-balancing exfoliating toners under your pits really work to reduce bacteria and its related odour?

Stay tuned until the end for some #damngood natural deodorant reviews, when we put a bunch of all natural deodorants for women to the test including baking-soda free versions, pastes in a jar, spray versions - you name it! It’s an all-natural deodorant extravaganza!
