Are native Australian plants powerful enough in deodorant to prevent body odour?
Indigenous Australians have been using native ingredients to solve skin issues for centuries, with their powerful knowledge passed down from generation to generation.
When we researched ingredients to incorporate in our natural deodorant formula, we thought “What could be better than using plants found in our own Aussie backyard?!” Regardless of their native origins, they still needed to pass one important test – proven effectiveness!
Using concentrated plant extracts was the way to go, and we couldn’t go past trusty Tea Tree Oil and Eucalyptus Essential Oils. We’ve all heard about them, but what’s so great about these native ingredients?
Native Australian Ingredient Spotlight - Eucalyptus Oil
It makes sense why Koalas love their leaves! Eucalyptus was a no brainer native Australian plant to include in both Refresh and Bloom deodorant formulas. Eucalyptus trees have their own national day, and can live up to 400 years. They’re the tallest flowering plant on earth and have a distinct colour and smell!
The skin benefits for Eucalyptus are endless. Eucalyptus is anti-fungal and anti-microbial, which is the perfect weapon against body odour. As body odour is released as a result of bacteria multiplying on the skin, Eucalyptus reduces microbial activity for fresh pit all day.
This wonder ingredient is also surprisingly soothing to irritated or dry skin. It’s been studied to boost natural ceramide levels in the skin, which are responsible for a healthy skin barrier. You’ll find Australian Eucalyptus is a popular ingredient in K-Beauty skincare too. If it’s great for the face, then delicate underarms will love Eucalyptus too!
Native Ingredient Spotlight - Tea Tree Oil
Grown along the East Coast of Australia, Tea Tree has been traditionally used in herbal medicine as an incredibly powerful germ killer. It’s the perfect ingredient for your pits to keep body odour at bay too and can be found in our Refresh scent.
When applied topically, tea tree oil has an anti-inflammatory effect on the skin. It can also help relieve skin discomfort and soothe minor skin abrasions. Tea tree makes an effective native deodorant ingredient due to its effective antibacterial properties. It fights odour-causing bacteria the natural way!
