(and really works - just check out all the glowing reviews on the product page!). It has a clean, herbaceous and calming scent with extra antioxidant and natural antiseptic properties. Free of aluminium, propylene glycol, parabens, phthalates and other nasties found in most deodorants. With a creamy shea butter base, it's fast-absorbing, non-sticky and won’t leave stains. The glass jar can be repurposed after the deodorant is finished.

5. Ylang Ylang & Calendula natural bar soap by Schmidt's, 7.50 €| Buy now
From the same brand that makes our super popular natural deodorant, we now also stock a range of natural soap bars. Schmidt's natural bar soaps are saponified, meaning they are not detergent-based. They create a rich bubbly lather without containing SLS (or any other nasties like phthalates, artificial fragrances or dyes). Ylang Ylang & Calendula has a delicate sweet scent with a touch of flora. With tumeric and exfoliating apricot seed.
