A 100% natural solid deodorant
Some components of classic deodorants and antiperspirants such as aluminum salts are now known to be harmful to health. Haven't found a natural alternative to industrial deodorant yet? Then opt for the natural solid deodorant from the Grain brand.
This solid deodorant presented in a stick is 100% natural (without aluminum salts, without synthetic fragrance or endocrine disruptors). It is very effective in regulating perspiration and preventing bad odors, in particular thanks to the essential oil of Tea tree which it contains (known for its antibacterial and antifungal properties). White clay offers absorbent, purifying and sanitizing properties. Shea butter has a gentle, protective and nourishing action. As for the beeswax, it gives this deodorant healing, nourishing and anti-inflammatory properties. A must to take care of your skin and avoid body odor.
This handcrafted deodorant is 100% natural and made in France (in Ille et Vilaine). It is economical, environmentally friendly, practical and safe for your health. It is part of a zero waste spirit. Like all the other products in the Grain range, this deodorant is made with complete respect for the ingredients that make it up by Anaïs, the company's creator. A global, ethical, artisanal approach, respecting the environment, from production to processing.

Main assets of this solid deodorant
White clay (Kaolin)
White clair has a light color and very fine graininess. It is rich in kaolin (aluminum silicate). It was discovered in China and forms in a hot and humid climate. On contact with water, the clay swells, forms a gel with a pleasant consistency that absorbs impurities and excess sebum like a blotter. In addition, it offers a protective action to the skin. A perfect ingredient to make a solid deodorant.
Organic shea butter
Shea is a tree that can reach fifteen meters high. It grows in the African savannas. It is from its nuts, containing up to 50% lipids, that shea butter is extracted, so popular today all over the world. Shea butter is an ideal active ingredient for skin care, due to its lipid-replenishing and smoothing action. It gives this deodorant a gentle, protective and nourishing action. It moisturizes to help reduce skin irritation, especially after shaving.
In cosmetics, beeswax has many virtues. Rich in vitamin A, it hydrates the skin while protecting it from the sun, cold or wind. It is also soothing and healing for problem or sensitive skin. Beeswax also has excellent restorative properties. It restores suppleness and comfort to your skin. Plus, it absorbs and retains moisture, leaving your skin fresh and supple. The beeswax contained in this deodorant is produced by Christian, in Belle île en mer, organically. It preserves the black bee of Brittany and just for that, it's magic.
Organic tea tree essential oil
The tea tree, more commonly called "Tea Tree" is native to Australia. It is a small tree with alternate needle-like leaves. Its name comes from the tea that was traditionally prepared from the leaves. Tea Tree essential oil is obtained by steam distillation of the leaves. This oil has many properties: it is healing, anti-inflammatory, analgesic and helps fight against itching. Broad-spectrum antibacterial, antifungal, stimulating and invigorating, Tea Tree essential oil gives this solid deodorant the ideal properties to annihilate bacteria in perspiration before they can give off an unpleasant odor.
How to use this deodorant?
Push from the bottom of the tube to release the solid deodorant. Apply under the armpits after slightly moistening your skin or apply it directly to your still damp armpits after showering.
How much solid deodorant should I use and am I risking white marks on my clothes ?
When you pass your solid deodorant over each armpit, it should be damp and leave a thin transparent layer on the skin. It should slip like a bar of soap between wet hands. This film will dry quickly and will not leave white marks on clothes. For maximum effectiveness, I recommend that you cover the armpits well from top to bottom and from right to left. A good fine coverage will be more effective than a thick layer that is too localized.
What is the difference between an antiperspirant deodorant and this solid deodorant ?
As the name suggests, an antiperspirant deodorant will prevent perspiration from escaping, while this deodorant will nibble at the bacteria in the perspiration before they can give off an unpleasant odor. To be effective, antiperspirants use aluminum salts, which close the pores of the skin. These aluminum salts are reputed to be dangerous, following numerous old and recent studies. A study by K G McGrath concluded in 2003 that breast cancer occurs 8 years earlier in women who shave their armpits and use antiperspirant than in those who don't. The study can be consultable here. Shaving the armpits allows aluminum to enter the body more easily.
Did you know ?
Sweating is an essential natural physiological need for the body. It allows the elimination of toxins, the maintenance of good hydration, the regulation of body temperature and a normal pH of the skin. This essential mechanism for the body could go completely unnoticed without the appearance of sweat stains under the armpits and bad odors (due to the breakdown of sweat and its decomposition). Of course, nobody likes to smell sweat! However, this is not a reason to expose your body to the questionable substances contained in certain industrial deodorants. These contain bactericides which block the natural sweating mechanism and synthetic fragrances which serve to mask bad odors but are accused of causing allergies and skin irritations. Finally, like many industrial cosmetic products, the classic deodorant may contain substances that act as endocrine disruptors.
