Lavera is another great, ethical company that I have found in the last couple of years and who products I have found to be effective and good quality too.
They have been against animal testing since the company started in 1987.They make products that are certified natural cosmetics. Many of their products are suitable for vegans and all contain no animal products from dead animals so honey and bees wax are okay.
All their products have full ingredients listed and what I appreciate is that these are given in layman's language too.
Whenever possible they use certified organic ingredients and at this time there are 105 organic ingredients available including soya, rose,almond and olive oil.
There are no synthetic artifical colouring, synthetic fragrances, ethoxylated ingredients, silicones, paraffins and petroleum products in any Lavera product.
There are no GM ingredients and the products are all tested on human volunteers for skin sensitivity.
This deodorant costs around £8 or £9 for 75 ml which is comparable to other natural deodorants but a bit more expensive than those shop brands on the high street.
Lavera have quite a large range of deodorants and many are available in 50 ml and 75 ml sizes the 50 ml is a roll on and the 75 ml is a spray.
I personally prefer the spray ones as I feel I can apply a bit less that way but it is a personal choice.
These are all deodorants and are not designed to stop natural perspiration, they help stop odours developing by using the natural odour killing essential oils.
I find these worked well for me and stopped any nasty whiffs developing. I didn't smell and neither did my clothes when I did the sniff test.If you are very sweaty these may not be effective enough for you but I find they do a good job for me and I liked all three of the smells I tried in Lavera's range.
My clothes didn't get stained by these deodorants as they have not got any chemicals in them.
I would be perfectly happy to use these again in future but have found I like the solid ones better as they last much longer and work our a bit cheaper in the long run.
