Sweating! A pretty taboo topic, especially when it comes to talking about the body odours that come with it. We’ve all been there, that moment when you realize you forgot to put deodorant and that you are … stinky. Embarrassing, right? However, sweating is a natural and necessary process. In fact, it acts as your very own portable A.C.! Yup. Perspiring is how your body keeps you cool during intense exercise and how it prevents you from overheating. Pretty useful, isn’t it? Sweat is actually odourless, but when it mixes with the bacteria that live on your skin, things get smelly.
Thank goodness, someone had the brilliant idea of whipping up a new product at the end of the 19th century: deodorant. It is now one of the most widely used body care product in the world. The downside of a body-odour-free world? Many experts are concerned that the substances found in most deodorants might be bad for us! Fortunately, there are natural deodorants available on the market, free from toxic ingredients! Chanv’s is one of them!
Discover Chanv’s Natural Deodorant
How can you eliminate odours without putting your health at risk? Read the labels! Staying away from aluminum salts, found in many (MANY) deodorants, is a great first step, as they block sweat glands. Since sweating helps regulate your body’s temperature … blocking it isn’t the best idea. The Chanv deodorant is, of course, aluminum free. How does it fight odours naturally without these ingredients? Three words: hemp, lemongrass and rosemary oil!
The Benefits of Hemp Oil
The Chanv deodorant, like all Chanv products, is made with the most natural ingredients possible, including hemp oil. This plant-based oil has an ideal ratio of omega-3 and omega-6, which means its profile is close to the natural lipids found in your skin. Therefore, it’s a quick penetrating dry oil that provides a non-oily protective layer. It has antioxidant superpowers and it is nourishing, anti-inflammatory and soothing. It is also a powerful anti-age product! Not that you have wrinkles under your armpits, of course. Our point is: it’s gentle and helpful for your skin!
Star Ingredient: Rosemary
Rosemary, which is a very well-known and common herb, has a sweet smell that will vaguely remind you of the scent of the fir tree. You probably already know that is it used in many recipes, but did you know it can also be transformed into a surprisingly versatile and effective essential oil? In addition to providing relief from different aches and pains (which is why it is found in the Chanv muscle cream), rosemary has antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial properties. These last two qualities are what makes it a perfect ingredient for the Chanv deodorant!
Essential Oils to the Rescue
The Chanv Deodorant has another secret ingredient: lemongrass essential oil. This perennial plant, native to South Asia and Africa, has many qualities. It is said to be anti-inflammatory, antiviral, soothing and relaxing. It is believed that it can also help with anxiety and depression. As you probably know, it is often used as a mosquito repellent. Don’t worry though, it won’t chase away your friends and coworkers. Actually, its fresh, floral and lemony scent is anything but unpleasant! In our deodorant, the antibacterial and antifungal properties of lemongrass make it the ideal ingredient to eliminate unwanted odours.
The Perfect Natural Deodorant
No GMOs, phthalates or paraben, vegan and cruelty-free, the Chanv deodorant has your back in stressful and important situations by keeping you dry at all times, without jeopardizing your health. That’s why we say it’s close to perfection! Start off your day on the right foot and say goodbye to embarrassing smells!
