What are aluminium free deodorants and anti-perspirants?
Aluminium is an active ingredient, commonly used in anti-perspirants, which creates a gel plug over your sweat glands and so helps you sweat less.
Aluminium free anti-perspirants and deodorants give you an alternative if you prefer products without aluminium.
At Soft & Gentle we use natural extracts such as sage and rice starch, which are used in our 0% Aluminium dry deodorant range. These wonderful natural ingredients help mask bad odour and help soften the skin.
Our 0% Aluminium anti-perspirant roll-on uses horsetail extract which acts as a natural anti-perspirant by restricting the pores’ size. It also features bamboo powder to help absorb the sweat.
What are the benefits of aluminium free deodorants and anti-perspirants?
There’s no substitute for feeling and smelling fresh–whether you’re spending the day dashing to and from meetings, running around after the family or catching up with friends.
To keep you feeling confident throughout the day, our aluminium free deodorants and anti-perspirants comes in three light fragrances:

At Soft & Gentle we also use tin-plated steel for the packaging on our 0% Aluminium Dry Deodorant cans. Tin-plates steel is 100% recyclable so when you’ve finished with it, you can simply put it in the recycling bin.
Our aluminium free dry deodorant is also vegan friendly and our aluminium free anti-perspirant roll-on is vegetarian friendly. They are also not tested on animals, giving you peace of mind that our products are kind to the planet, animals and your skin.

What’s the difference between deodorants and anti-perspirants?
There are differences between deodorants and anti-perspirants and these apply also to aluminium free variants. Here’s a simple guide to help explain the difference:
Deodorants help to mask unpleasant smells, leaving you smelling fresh and feeling confident, without blocking your pores.
Anti-perspirants help to limit the amount you sweat by blocking sweat ducts or reducing the size of your underarm pores.
So, if you want to sweat less while opting for an aluminium free alternative, choose an aluminium free antiperspirant. If sweat isn’t a problem but you want to keep unpleasant smells at bay, then opt for an aluminium free deodorant.
