Probiotics have long been considered the unglamorous hero of the gastrointestinal world by restoring good bacteria in the gut for a healthy digestive tract and immune system. Over the years, the benefits of probiotics have been applied to skincare with a range of serums and emulsions rising to cult status for their ability to balance the microflora on the skin’s surface in order to improve its appearance and strengthen its protection from environmental threats. But now these benefits can be found in deodorant.
Merging probiotics with natural ingredients, KIND-LY revolutionises the green hygiene category with Australia’s first and only 100% natural deodorant enriched with probiotics and magnesium. Referred to as resident bacteria, the good microorganisms found in KIND-LY deodorants neutralise the bad, transient bacteria by supporting the skin’s natural microbiome for healthy, smell-free pits.
“With daily showering and excessive use of soaps, we’re washing away all the good bacteria from under our arms,” says KIND-LY founder, Lisa Raciti. “As a result, we’re unprotected from the bad microorganisms that mix with sweat and produce odour.”
As sweat itself is odourless, KIND-LY’s aluminium, paraben and alcohol free formulation allows the underarm area to produce sweat and expel toxins naturally without the associated smell, and re-educates the body to correct bacterial imbalances on its own.
Available in 5 scents infused with premium essential oils, including Lavender & Bergamot, Lime & Frankincense, Cypress & Sandalwood, Coconut & Vanilla and Rose & Geranium, the award-winning range contains organic aloe vera juice to soothe aggravated skin, negatively charged diatomaceous earth to absorb moisture, antibacterial magnesium to cleanse skin, and calming witch hazel to restore underarm health. Each deodorant in the range retails for $18.95 RRP and is available globally online and in over 200 stockists.
Before using natural deodorant, try KIND-LY’s The Armpit Detox mask to clear the skin and eliminate odour caused by bacteria.
