A couple of days ago, I found myself on TikTok, using it as my antidote for anxiety. (Okay, that's not entirely true. You all need to send help and save me from the dopamine and scrolling hypnosis of TikTok. But I digress.)
Well, at least this time my non-stop scrolling gave me something positive to share with people looking for a safer deodorant that works.
Because the TikTok algorithm loves me, it graced my FYP with a bunch of folks who were tearing into their unfortunate coworkers. What united these complainers? They all had one thing in common: an intense aversion to the paraben, baking soda, and aluminum-free deodorant squad.
I mean, they were raising a ruckus, screaming their complaints at the top of their virtual lungs. One of them even yelled, "Use normal deos, for heaven's sake! Stop drifting around, smelling like a bouquet of wildflowers on the move!"
Another started his video with "Let's start a Love Cancer support group!" (Yes, you heard correctly. Someone literally put on their camera and exclaimed, "I love cancer!" because they were trying to convince the world that plant-based Deos don't work)
I couldn't believe my ears. I thought I had seen it all but then it just kept getting worse, "Just buy some regular deodorant and save us all from your olfactory assault!” said another gym guy.
And there I was in the comment section, I knew something some of them didn't know and I was keeping it smooth and sassy, asking, "Hey, have you ever given HIKI a try?"
So, what's the deal with these aluminum free deodorants?
Some paraben, baking soda, and aluminum-free deodorants are made with plant-based ingredients that work to neutralize odor-causing bacteria. They are free of parabens, baking soda, aluminum, and other synthetic ingredients.
The paraben, baking soda, and aluminum-free deodorant squad
The paraben, baking soda, and aluminum-free deodorant squad is a group of people who are passionate about using natural products, including deodorant. They believe that paraben, baking soda, and aluminum-free deodorants are safer and more effective than traditional deodorants, which often contain harsh chemicals.
HIKI paraben, baking soda, and aluminum-free deodorant
HIKI is an aluminum, paraben, baking soda-free deodorant that is also leaping bunny certified, meaning it never tests on animals. It is free of parabens, baking soda, aluminum, and other synthetic ingredients. HIKI is also vegan and cruelty-free.
So, are plant-based deodorants worth it?
Overall, I think plant-based deodorants can be a great option for people who are looking for a safer and more natural alternative to traditional deodorants that work. I encourage you to give HIKI a try. It is a safe and effective product that will keep you smelling fresh all day long.
I think it's important to note that everyone's body is different and what works for one person may not work for another just as fast. If you are trying a paraben, baking soda, and aluminum-free deodorant for the first time, it may take some time for your body to adjust. It's also important to apply paraben, baking soda, and aluminum-free deodorant liberally and reapply as needed.
And to the other TikTok users who were concerned about the safety of aluminum-free deodorants. The ones who said they'd rather go commando than use an aluminum-free deodorant that doesn't work, I say: try HIKI! It actually works.
Second, it is important to remember that everyone has different scent preferences. Some people may not like the smell of paraben, baking soda, and aluminum-free deodorant brands, but I have good news. HIKI comes in delicious scents like coconut and lavender, as well as unscented for those who prefer no scent at all.
Ultimately, the decision of whether or not to use a paraben, baking soda, and aluminum-free deodorant is a personal one. If you are concerned about the safety of traditional deodorants or you simply prefer to use natural products, then a paraben, baking soda, and aluminum-free deodorant may be a good option for you.
