Strong against odors and made from 100% natural raw materials, that's what makes our deodorant cream so special. In the FIVE manner, we rely on a minimal number of ingredients, but with maximum effect. Our cream deodorant uses baking soda to neutralize odors before they can even develop.
Natural protection with the FIVE deodorant cream
Minimal ingredients, maximum effect
At FIVE we use a maximum of five ingredients for our natural cosmetics. We want to create care products that promote the balance of your skin and support it, but do not overload it. With our first deodorant, the FIVE deodorant cream, we've outdone ourselves and developed a product with just four ingredients that care for your skin while protecting it from odor.
This is how the deodorant cream with baking soda works
The most important ingredient in our deodorant cream is baking soda. This substance has amazing abilities. You can use it to bake delicious muffins, take it against heartburn or use it as an active ingredient in your cream deodorant. Baking soda is alkaline and the bacteria that break down sweat and produce the unpleasant smell don't like it at all.
frequently asked Questions
Do Natural Deodorants Really Work?
Natural deodorant creams with baking soda provide very reliable protection against the smell of sweat, because baking soda or similar active ingredients prevent the colonization of odor-causing bacteria. However, you should not expect an antiperspirant effect from a natural deodorant; it is not an antiperspirant. Although there are natural cosmetic deodorants that contain tannins and whose astringent effect briefly tightens the pores, the effect has so far been rather small. Sweat production can only be properly contained or even stopped using aluminum salts, such as those used in classic antiperspirants. You can find tips for this in our deodorant guide Switching to deodorant cream.
How do you apply deodorant cream?
If you were previously used to deodorant roll-ons or deodorant sprays, it may seem a bit strange at first to take the cream out of the jar with your finger and spread it under your armpits. After a short period of getting used to it, it feels completely normal. During development, we made sure that the product did not leave any residue on the fingers. There is no need to wash your hands again after application.
Which deodorant is the best?
There are now some good natural deodorant creams on the market. The most important ingredient in an effective cream deodorant is undoubtedly baking soda and can be recognized at the INCI as sodium bicarbonate. All other ingredients are secondary, but should not harm the environment or your body. We therefore avoid using silver, as it is used in many natural cosmetic deodorants, because it is a biocide that damages the environment and should only be used in a very targeted manner. Ideally, the optimal cream deodorant is unscented or contains only a little perfume in the form of natural essential oils, which, in addition to the scent, have an antimicrobial function. The best deodorant is the one that accompanies you invisibly but reliably all day long.
Is deodorant better than spray?
Sprays are easy to use and work better than cream for long armpit hair. However, the cream performs better in all other areas. There is no spray mist like with sprays. This eliminates the need for the typical “deodorant mist” in the bathroom and the risk of inhaling aerosols. The packaging is smaller and is usually easier to recycle. The creams are also very economical; a 50 gram jar is enough for around four to five months.
