Go nude with APHA.LAB’s free-from deodorant
It’s probably not something you’ve spent too much time thinking about, but if you were to take a peek at the ingredients list of your deodorant you might be perturbed to find some pretty heavy ingredients in the mix. We’re talking everything from aluminium chlorohydrate to triclosan (the antibacterial chemical used to kill odour-causing germs on the skin) and phthalates galore. The good news is that Melbourne’s APHA.LAB has crafted an all-natural alternative that actually works!
If you’re a natural deodorant sceptic, we get it – crystals and coconut don’t always cut the mustard. However, APHA.LAB has done the hard yards to create a deodorant that is free from hidden nasties, and is instead filled with nourishing ingredients such as cucumber juice, chamomile, rose geranium and organic ylang ylang. Formulated for sensitive skin, APHA.LAB currently has two captivating scents – Cactus & Clay, which is fresh and earthy, and Grasslands, which captures the feeling of spring.
APHA.LAB was conceptually founded in 2017 and physically launched to the world in 2019 with a view to create mindful self-care products that are natural focussed and ethically derived. The journey began with natural deodorant, which was catalysed by an exploration of the harmful effects of antiperspirant. As a result, APHA.LAB’s free-from deodorants allow your body to behave as it should. The texture of the stick is intended to glide on easily without feeling sticky or wet and best of all, it’s effective. Need to try it for yourself? Grab a stick online at An Ode to Women.
