Making your own deodorant is one of the best ways to ensure you know exactly what you are putting on your body. DIY deodorant can be cheaper than store-bought, it helps the environment by not using plastic packaging and it's easy enough to do. Diatomaceous earth helps kill any odour creating bacteria whilst simultaneously absorbing moisture and toxins. It is safe to use on all skin types and is not an irritant. This deodorant is intended for use daily however, we recommend its use according to your needs and to consult your GP or dermatologist beforehand.
