To most of us using deodorant is just part of our everyday routine whether it be spraying it on after we shower or after we finish an intense gym session. However, what we fail to realise is that this spray we use everyday can have some very negative effects on what our skin absorbs  such as skin irritation, possible health risks, and even making perspiration worse – the solution? ZeroYet100’s natural deodorant.

ZeroYet100 is a Hong Kong based brand that offers an all-natural handmade deodorant that is completely free of any any chemicals. Founded by Anita Patel and Sheetal Avlani, the duo decided to come up with an all natural, deodorant with a natural scent that is also free from adulteration and toxic chemicals. It began after the two learnt about all the consequences of using such highly toxic products caused and it was then a no brainier to stop using it. Their next step to not only change their lives but others too, was to formulate a product that was definitely zero chemicals but 100 % effective. After months of intensive research into which natural products would deliver effective results, they finally zeroed into the all natural formula that was 100% effective as well as nourishing. The brand reflects the important need and desire of wanting harm-free beauty substances that still have the same results. After the success of the responses of family and friends, the two entrepreneurs decided to go commercial and launch ZeroYet100 in Hong Kong, a handcrafted unisex natural deodorant which has now also been approved by the Standards & Testing Centre Hong Kong.

 

It’s very important to use natural deodorants as it allows your body to complete it’s natural detoxification process without clogging any pores or causing any skin irritation. We decided to try and test out ZeroYet100’s three products; detox pack, natural deodorant pot and their natural deodorant stick. What we loved the most was that all the ingredients they use in their products are all natural and suitable for all skin types

1. Detox Pack

The detox pack was designed to help restore your skin’s natural PH levels, draw out any toxins that may have accumulated in your system after using chemical based products, boosts immune system and also fights body odour. The directions were extremely easy to follow and we found this product was very effective and made my skin look great! The ingredients in the detox pack included food grade diatomaceous earth, bentonite clay, rose water, organic apple cider vinegar, colloidal silver, activated charcoal and organic cold pressed virgin cocos nucifera (coconut) oil – all great for your skin to absorb! We used this product after an intense sweaty workout and our skin has never felt so fresh and clean.

Rating: 8/10

Would we use it again: 100%!


HK$108

2. Natural Deodorant Pot

The very unique attribute about this natural deodorant was that you don’t have to roll this on or spray it – with its cream formulation (it comes in a pot) you apply it with your fingers which is great because you can control the amount of deodorant you want to use! With ingredients like shea butter, witch hazel, aloe vera and a delightful blend of essential oils like lavender, sweet orange and lemongrass this deodorant really felt luxurious and worked amazingly. It helps to neutralise odour and absorb wetness and has a non-greasy, non-sticky feel. The best part was that it left no stains and no irritation and for those who don’t want to use their hands to apply it, the product comes with a cute bamboo spatula that’s perfect for scooping the product out (we do recommend applying it with your fingers though to activate the essential oils within the product). This deodorant also stayed on for a good 6 hours before we felt we needed to reapply it (keep in mind we are always on the move in the heat and humidity here in Hong Kong so that is pretty impressive!)

Would we use it again: Yes, but we preferred it in stick form! (No.3 below)

3. Natural Deodorant Stick

Similar to the natural deodorant pot, the natural deodorant stick also helps to neutralise odour and absorb wetness without leaving you feeling greasy or sticky. It also has ingredients such as coconut oil, shea butter, witch hazel, aloe vera, a blend of essential oils, and maranta arundinacea (arrowroot) powder, which helps you feel dry while allowing your body to release toxins through sweat. The stick applicator glides on easily and soothers the underarms whilst preventing body odour. We liked how the product had a very nice floral smell which is from the combination of natural scented ingredients listed. This was our favourite product from the three as it was also the perfect size to take on the go or when you travel. We tested this out in a hot yoga class which both built a lot of heat and sweat but my underarms didn’t feel sticky or sweaty and there was no smell. 

Rating: 9/10

Would we use it again: Definitely! It stayed on, was very easy to carry around and did what it’s supposed to without putting any chemicals into our body!

HK$58

We would definitely recommend everyone to switch to ZeroYet100’s natural deodorant products as they keep your underarms odour free and dry without filling your body with any harmful chemicals. They are also going to be launching zero waste, 100% recycled and biodegradable push up tubes . Stay tuned!
