Find a natural foot deodorant for smelly feet

Need a deodorant for smelly feet? This is a problem for many men and women of all ages.  In this post we help you to find a natural and organic foot deodorant so that you can keep your feet feeling fresher for longer.

Please note, smelly feet may be a symptom of some medical conditions so always speak to your GP if concerned.

What causes smelly feet?

Sweaty, smelly feet can affect anyone and according to the NHS, a build-up of sweat and bacteria is one of the most common causes of foot odours[i].

Our skin’s microbiome plays host to all kinds of bacteria but feet are a particularly easy target for bad, odour-releasing microorganisms. Wearing warm, synthetic socks and shoes for many hours of the day gives bacteria plenty of opportunity breed in the enclosed environment.

Tip: You may find that spending more time barefoot or wearing breathable, light cotton socks reduces sweating and helps smelly feet. 

Some lifestyle factors can also increase your likelihood of experiencing sweaty feet and active people may find that they are more prone to smelly and sweaty feet, especially in hot weather.

Your profession can also play a part in causing sweaty foot odours and those that have sedentary desk jobs could find that their feet are less sweaty than those that are on their feet all day in work boots.

According to the NHS, fungal infections are another known cause of bad foot odours. If your feet are persistently smelly, it is a good idea to seek medical advice so that you can be sure there’s no fungus or other medical issue to be treated.

Did you know: A foot has up to 250,000 sweat glands! This moisture can transfer onto your shoes or sock so be sure to switch your footwear regularly to air them out.

Why choose a natural foot deodorant?

If you are prone to smelly, sweaty feet, you may have already tried using deodorising products in your shoes, but have you ever considered using a natural foot deodorant?

Our Deodorising Prebiotic Foot Cream features the fresh, cooling scent of Peppermint and Eucalyptus and provides a three-way deodorising action that neutralises smelly foot odours.

 

Natural Foot Deodorant for smelly feet

 

Benefits of regularly applying this soothing, organic foot deodorant for smelly feet include:

  • Prebiotics promote the growth of beneficial, protective bacteria. This inhibits the growth of the bad bacteria that cause body odour
  • Zinc Ricinolate absorbs the odour molecules like a sponge and ‘locks’ them in so they don’t become airborne
  • Potassium Alum prevents bacteria that cause BO from multiplying
  • Dry, cracked heels are softened with moisture-binding Shea Butter and Sunflower Oil

Can't believe that this product could have had such an amazing result. I've always suffered from "smelly" feet, I can kick my shoes off now, without embarrassment”- Julia B

How to apply foot deodorant

Feet that are washed daily are less likely to smell and our natural foot deodorant should always be applied to clean, freshly washed feet. Before use, give your feet a good wash in the bath or shower, making sure you clean the soles and in-between the toes.

You might also want to try soaking your feet in deodorising apple cider vinegar footbath. Add half a cup to a bowl of warm water and soak your feet for 5-10 minutes.

Once your feet are fresh and clean, dry them thoroughly, taking care to dry damp spots in between the toes where bacteria can linger. You can then massage your foot cream to your feet.

A little goes a long way with our deodorising foot cream. Apply a thin layer over your feet and reapply if needed throughout the day. Your feet may be slippery after use so wait a few minutes for the foot cream to absorb, then put on clean cotton socks.
