Deodorant
GOLD Clean Deodorant Balm, £11, naturaldeoco.com
“I finally found a natural deodorant effective enough for me! I know that with this product, I am putting safe ingredients on to my skin. I struggled even before I chose a greener lifestyle to find a deodorant that was effective for me from ‘mainstream’ options, so I really can’t recommend this enough. The company get bonus points too for plastic free packaging (and it looks good too!). It’s also a cruelty free product, free from preservatives and other nasties. If I’m in a real hurry, this deodorant can take a tad longer than the average to apply as it is a balm (and I like to wash my hands afterwards) so not necessarily super easy on-the-go but it is totally worth it. This product is an absolute staple for green beauty” Victoria J

GOLD Relaxing Lavender Bath Truffles, £4, boocottage.co.uk
