Sweating is normal and most times, even healthy. Without sweating, your body can overheat.

But if you're someone who tends to stink up when you sweat, wearing a deodorant is a must.

Deodorants aren't meant to stop you from sweating (and it shouldn't!), but a good one is meant to neutralise the bacteria that causes bad body odour. 

Unfortunately, too many brands out there offer deodorants with heaps of chemicals and ingredients that can be harmful to your body.

We've put together a list of nine deodorants made with natural ingredients that you can get in Malaysia:

1. Hello Natural Co

Local store Hello Natural Co specialises in making natural deodorants in a balm, powder, and spray option. They also sell a specific balm for those with baking soda allergies or sensitive skin.

All of the deodorants are free of alcohol, aluminium, synthetic fragrances, and parabens. Each one is made with activated charcoal that absorbs odour-causing bacteria and moisture.

Price range:
RM37.39 – RM49.85

HYGR came about after one of its founders, Meng, had struggled to find a natural deodorant that could solve his severe body odour. As most brands contained aluminium and baking soda, ingredients he is allergic to, he needed a deodorant that contained only natural ingredients.

1. Fresh cooling citrus
2. Soothing lavender

4. Tea tree
5. Ylang ylang
6. Woody
