"Very happy to report that after a week of use, I think I've finally found a plastic free deodorant that I - and my sensitive skin - am happy with! This is so natural and crucially contains no bicarbonate of soda. It also doesn’t appear to go down so I feel I'm going to have it for months if not years!"
