Soapwalla Natural Deodorant



I waited with baited breath for this to be available in the UK, a natural deodorant that actually smells nice and works!

Having avoided deodorants which contain aluminium for years and been rather disappointed by the market offering, I stuck to salt based products like PitRok. I have tried a few other "natural" brands but they have never been anything to get excited about, especially in the scent department.

Soapwalla was created by Rachel Winard, who having suffered from sensitive skin issues due to Lupus, started concocting her own products in her kitchen. Her cream deodorant has since become a cult product, made with all organic, food grade ingredients, it’s a pleasure to use, and sniff!

It contains a base of organic jojoba, sunflower and rosehip oils, as well as Shea butter, with corn starch, sodium bicarbonate and kaolin clay, to absorb moisture. Essential oils of Lavender, Tea Tree, Orange, Peppermint and Bergamot (all personal favourites) work effectively to combat odour.

Please note that this is not an anti-perspirant, so some wetness is to be expected, however this is not an issue for me, I’d rather a bit of wetness than use a product containing aluminium (and parabens, of course).

The bottom line is not only will you smell nice, your clothes won’t be ruined.

A 56gr jar should last you at least 4 months, mine is half full after 3 months

  1. I keep reading about this product but haven't plucked up the courage to try it, I am still buying high street deodorants as I can't find a natural one that works for me
