The modern cosmetics industry, on the one hand, has given us a lot of products that allow us to maintain beauty and youth, and on the other hand, it gives rise to many disputes among scientists and doctors about the safety of these products. This happened with deodorants and antiperspirants.
It's hard to imagine life without them. An active lifestyle, work, stress - all this causes sweating, which makes it difficult to feel confident and comfortable. Let's take a closer look at the remedies that help fight this problem, and how Weleda organic deodorant differs from them.
Composition of conventional deodorants and antiperspirants
Deodorants were invented first. These products only "interrupt" the smell that occurs due to the multiplication of bacteria on the surface of the skin during sweating. They contain quite aggressive antibacterial components that can disrupt the protective properties of the skin, as well as synthetic fragrances that can cause irritation and an allergic reaction. But most often, we use antiperspirants, as they not only block unpleasant odors, but also reduce sweating by clogging the ducts of the sweat glands.
The active ingredient in antiperspirants is aluminum hydrochloride. It is an aluminum s alt that causesswelling of the upper layer of the skin, due to which sweat ceases to be released through the sweat ducts. Scientists do not give a clear answer about the harm of this component, but they believe that frequent use of antiperspirants can increase the risk of developing diseases such as allergies, breast cancer, hormonal disorders, vascular and central nervous system diseases.
If this information scares you, read on to find out how you can replace your usual antiperspirants and how to get out of the risk zone?
Swiss cosmetics company Weleda was founded in 1921 as a pharmaceutical laboratory. Since then, the company has an excellent reputation: it produces only organic, environmentally friendly biocosmetics. All herbal ingredients are grown without the addition of chemical fertilizers in special favorable conditions.
All cosmetics are free of artificial preservatives, colors and fragrances and are not tested on animals. This is the main idea of the Weleda brand. Cosmetics contain only natural vegetable oils, herbal extracts, essential oils and other environmentally friendly natural ingredients.
In addition to caring creams, oils and masks, the brand has invented Weleda deodorant. It is available in three flavors, and as you already understood, it has an absolutely natural and safe composition for he alth. Let's take a closer look at this line, compositions and customer reviews.
One of the brand's most popular deodorants is Weleda Citrus. This product contains natural citrus essential oils that give the product a wonderful fresh scent. It also contains alcohol, which fights the development of bacteria on the surface of the skin, and water.
This product is not an antiperspirant, it does not clog the ducts of the sweat glands, but it perfectly fights the development of bacteria and unpleasant odors without irritating the delicate skin of the armpits. When purchasing this deodorant, you need to understand that it will not be able to prevent the appearance of sweat, so it is better to replace it with another agent for a responsible event. But for daily care, to avoid the harmful effects of aluminum s alts and other chemical components, this product is ideal.
The line of deodorants offers two formats: 100 ml and 30 ml. The small glass spray bottle is very convenient to take with you and refresh your skin throughout the day.
The product is sprayed onto clean, dry skin of the armpits at a distance of 10-15 cm.
Citrus Deodorant reviews
Weleda Citrus Deodorant has a lot of mixed reviews. Some buyers have not fully figured out whether they liked the product or not. Other users have not yet had the opportunity to test the product in more extreme conditions, such as heat or while playing sports. But there are also more specific comments. The advantages of buyers include:
- Pleasant fresh citrus scent.
- Natural composition. AdherentsOrganic Cosmetics has no intention of replacing Weleda deodorant with any other.
- Convenient travel format.
- Sustainable glass bottle and non-aerosol dispenser.
- Getting rid of the smell of sweat for several hours.
- Does not cause irritation or allergies.
- Dries quickly, won't stain clothes.
- Can be used several times a day.
There are also negative reviews. Buyers are unhappy with the product:
- Contains a lot of alcohol, which can cause a burning sensation.
- Does not protect against perspiration.
- Has a short-term effect, after 3-4 hours you have to renew.
- Has a high flow rate.
- Packed in a shatterproof glass bottle.
- Has a high price.
Positive and negative reviews are almost equal. It can be concluded that many buyers expected too much from the product, mistaking it for an antiperspirant. This is the main mistake when choosing organic cosmetics: to expect from them the same effect as conventional cosmetics, but without harm to he alth.
Citrus Biodeodorant is more suitable for people prone to allergic reactions, with sensitive skin, teenagers. When playing sports, in extreme heat and for people with hyperhidrosis, such a remedy is unlikely to help you feel confident.
Wild Rose Deodorant
Weleda "pink" deodorant is based on damask rose extract. This component gave the product not only a name, but alsoexcellent floral scent. The deodorant also contains alcohol, water, glycerin and ammonium glycyrrhizate. The last component is of plant origin and is completely safe for he alth, excluding individual intolerance.
This product can also be applied to dry, clean skin and can be sprayed several times a day if needed.
Reviews of Wild Rose Deodorant
This Weleda deodorant also has positive and negative reviews. Unlike citrus, many people did not like the aroma of rose. He is considered sharp, "cheap" and out of date. True, after a while the fragrance "weathers" from the skin and becomes more subtle and pleasant.
But the effect, unlike citrus deodorant, is more obvious in this product. It not only masks the smell, but also prevents sweating. Customers also like the fact that Weleda deodorant dries quickly, does not leave a sticky film on the skin and stains on clothes, and, of course, does not contain aluminum s alts.
Deodorant "Weleda" with sage can be attributed to the unisex product. The brand does not have a specific deodorant for men, but this fragrance is perfect for the strong half of humanity who cares about their he alth.
This product has a pleasant herbal scent with hints of sage, thyme and rosemary. In addition to sage leaf oil, the composition contains alcohol, water and ammonium glycyrrhizate.
Sage Deodorant reviews
Weleda Sage is a body spray deodorant that most customers love. The only thing that may not suit everyone is the herbal aroma, but those who like such smells are satisfied with the product. Men also consider the remedy to be quite effective, especially considering its natural and safe composition. The product absorbs quickly and can be applied to the skin several times a day as needed without fear of hurting yourself.
You can only talk about the complete safety of the components if you are not allergic to any of the ingredients of the product. Unfortunately, an individual allergic reaction can be to citrus fruits, rose oil, and sage extract. Therefore, if you notice intolerance to these components, it is better not to use the tool.
It should be noted again that one should not expect too much from a deodorant with a natural composition. "Weleda" - cosmetics, which primarily cares about the he alth of its customers. Not every company produces deodorants without aluminum s alts, giving its customers the right to choose. Now you have it, and only you can decide which cosmetics to use.
