Frequently Asked Questions

What is natural deodorant, and does it work?

In short, there is no official definition. Much like “clean beauty” and “sustainable beauty,” natural deodorant isn’t a term regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), so take any brand marketing lingo with a grain of salt. For what it’s worth, aluminum salts are currently banned in Allure‘s (continuously evolving and updated) clean beauty standards.
