Aluminium free deodorant from Lavilin

Lavilin Bio Balance 48 hour Roll on Deodorant – 60ml (£8.40)

Are you looking for a deodorant that does not contain aluminium, no alcohol, no parabens and has no added fragrances. Lavilin, from its makers Hlavin have developed such a product.

This roll on deodorant works by neutralising perspiration odour for up to 48 hours.  It is perfume free and contains Hyssopus plant, Clove flower and Calendula flower extracts.

I’ve been testing this out for the past few weeks.  It’s easy to use, highly concentrated so you don’t have to reapply layers of it in order for it to work and, although it won’t stop you from sweating, it does prevent body odour.  My tip, shake before use and allow to dry before dressing.

The formula is also water resistant, so if you’re a keen sports man or women, this type of product is ideal.

Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Oryza Sativa (Rice) Starch, Zinc Oxide, Capryloyl Glycine, Ethylhexyl glycerin, Maltodextrin, Hyssopus Officinalis extract, Eugenia Caryophyllus (Clove) flower, Calendula Officinalis flower extract, phenoxyethanol, hydroxyethylcellulose, allantoin

I have a problem with sweaty feet? What do you recommend?


Lavilin Foot Deodorant Cream – 12.5g (£15.32)

If you suffer from sweaty feet, you’ll know that the majority of solutions on the market are sprays, most of which try to hide foot odor with a cocktail of synthetic fragrances. A glance at the ingredients reveal a list of nasty chemicals. So why not check out Lavilin Foot Deodorant Cream, as it contains no alcohol, no aluminium, no propylene glycol and is paraben free (unusual to find in a foot deodorant). It claims that with one application, it can eliminate foot odor for between 3-7 days.

Remember this is a deodorant, not an antiperspirant, so won’t stop your feet from sweating but should help them from smelling. Antiperspirants are designed to block pours to prevent you from sweating in the first place… highly unnatural and certainly not ‘del brown approved’!!

A quick look on the internet shows it has pretty good customer reviews, let me know your comments if you’ve tried it.

Ingredients: Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil & Hydrogenated Castor Oil & Copernica Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax,  Zinc Oxide, Potato Starch (modified), Talc (pharma), Triethyl Citrate, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Extract, Glycine Soya, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Arnica Montana Flower Extract, Tocopherol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Lactose, Milk Protein, Bifida Ferment Lysate, Fragrance, O-Cymen-5-Ol.
