Mineral deodorants are having a moment right now. Hot on the heels of the success of mineral cosmetics like foundation and concealer, deodorants are tapping the use of volcanic minerals. The Body Shop was first with its 24-hour protecting DeoDry™ Collection. Free from parabens and aluminium salts, the three-scent range offers effective odour and dryness control, as well as keeping white marks at bay. Good one. This month Garnier launches Mineral Deodorants which include hero ingredient, Mineralite (aka perlite). Mineralite locks in four times its volume in water, is five times more absorbent than talc and doesn't irritate the skin. Offering 48-hour protection, the aerosol and roll-ons are targeted towards white mark protection, intense dryness, skin soothing or being suitable for sensitive skin. Whaddya think? Keen to try?
The Body Shop DeoDry™ Roll-ons ($16.95), Roll-on Refills ($12.95), Deodorant Sticks ($16.95) and Garnier Mineral Deodorant Sprays ($5.45) and Roll-ons ($4.25) are available now. Garnier stockists: 1300 659 259.
