With more people wanting to lead a healthier lifestyle, it’s no surprise to see them re-evaluating the products they use in everyday life. For most people, deodorant is something that is applied everyday and a staple item. So many deodorants in shops are in plastic packaging, which isn’t great for the environment. Whilst some can be recycled, there are some that can’t. And recycling is NOT the solution to our huge waste problem. Refusing to use items, and opting for plastic-free versions is a better option.
This is where Earth Conscious comes in – they make deodorant using natural butters and their packaging is plastic-free. Huzzah! Last year I reviewed them before I became vegan. I really loved the product, but I was quite sad at the prospect of having to find a new deodorant after I became vegan. Not long after I expressed my concern to Earth Conscious, they told me to hang tight as they had something in the works. Yes, you guessed it – they launched a vegan version of their awesome natural deodorant!
Earth Conscious Vegan Deodorant Review
The vegan version of their deodorant only currently comes in two scents: lavender and citrus. Not a big scent range, so I hope in the new year that they add more scents.
Ingredients: Certified organic coconut oil, certified organic arrowroot powder, certified organic shea butter, sodium bicarbonate, jojoba wax (plus the essential oils for the different scents)
The vegan version feels a lot smoother than the deodorant that I received when I wrote my review last year. Shortly after that review, they changed the formula and sent me a new tin which was a lot less gritty. But there’s just something about the vegan version that feels really silky.
Despite the fact the formulation is different, the Earth Conscious Vegan Deodorant performs just as well as their non-vegan versions. It melts into my skin nicely and keeps me stink free for easily 48hrs. If I was working out, I would imagine it’d likely only be good for a day. But either way, it is a natural deodorant that WORKS. It’s really no surprise to hear that they’re an award-winning brand.
As I mentioned in my first review, this is a deodorant, not an anti-perspirant. So you will still sweat. But you won’t stink.
Earth Conscious supports the Marine Conservation Society by donating 10p from every tin sold. I think this is just fantastic, and really shows how much they care about supporting organizations dedicated to helping our planet.
The deodorants are priced at £5 for a 60g tin and since you don’t need a lot, I have found one tin lasts a year. I’ve saved money, but also no longer have plastic waste to worry about. The tins are aluminium which I reuse for other things.
I really love the vegan version of their deodorant and am happy with how it works. I would like to see a full scent range in the new year. It would also be nice to see them drop their non-vegan deodorants, and become a 100% vegan brand. But that’s just my personal thoughts.
If you’re looking to try a natural deodorant, I highly recommend you try Earth Conscious!
