Your ultimate guide to organic deodorants Made in India

Your ultimate guide to organic deodorants Made in India

We have shortlisted nine mindful brands brands which have tried to revive the nature-human connection through a range of organic deodorants. These deodorants are free from scary chemicals such as Parabens, Aluminum, Silica, Triclosan, Talc, Propylene Glycol, Steareths, and TEA/DEA (triethanolamine/diethanolamne).However, a word of caution, they do not contain aluminum chlorohydrate and aluminum zirconium, ingredients in anti-perspirants that stop you from sweating. These chemicals can clog your lymph nodes which sweat out toxins and accumulate them along with the aluminum, plugging close the gateway to our lymphatic system which is a big no-no.

Going #PlasticNeutral with rePurpose

Going #PlasticNeutral with rePurpose

We are drowning in an ocean of plastic.

Statistics are damning. By 2015, 8.3 billion metric tonnes of plastic had been produced. Two-thirds of it remains languishing on earth. At least 2 billion people globally do not have their rubbish collected. Heck, microplastic has reached the depths of the Mariana Trench.

But, what if for every transaction involving plastic, you could offset its impact by recycling the equivalent of plastic you consume? That’s exactly what Peter Wang Hjemdahl, Svanika Balasubramanian, and Aditya Siroya, the three co-founders of rePurpose,a social enterprisethat helps you offset your plastic footprint, intend to do.
