What Salt of the Earth says:

Prompted by the popularity of our Classic Natural Deodorant Stone, we found a way to combine the natural potassium alum with purified water, aloe vera and honeysuckle extract. This enabled us to offer a pump spray format that can be used on underarms, feet and even to freshen shoes! There are no additives, perfumes or preservatives added. In 2012 we have improved the formula by adding p-Anisic acid, an antibacterial extract of the Star Anise plant. We have deliberately left it unscented so it will not interfere with other fragrances you wear e.g. perfume, body lotion.

  • Contains skin soothing organic Aloe vera and antibacterial honeysuckle extract
  • Long lasting protection: Salt of the Earth’s active ingredient rests on the surface of your skin providing you with protection that lasts longer.
  • No white marks on clothes
  • Suitable for vegetarians and vegans
  • Not tested on animals
  • Unisex – great for both women and men

What I say:

I like the fact that this is a deodorant without any nasties like aluminium or parabens. I thought it would be nice to use a product without alcohol as well, but it just doesn’t work as well for me as the ones that include alcohol. A big bonus is the fact that they even offer a refill to use less packaging!

For days where I want to make sure I don’t start to smell or sweat a lot the Salt of the Earth Spray doesn’t quite do the job for me. I still use this deo after I shave my armpits when I want something that doesn’t irritate my skin any further and it works absolutely fine for that. If you generally don’t sweat a lot this might work better for you.

Ingredients [Codecheck]:

Aqua (water), Potassium Alum, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, p-Anisic Acid (from star anise or Indian basil)
