I was contacted by Bionsen to try out the latest addition to their aluminium/paraben-free Bionsen deodorant range, Bionsen Caring Touch.

Being aluminium free seemed like something positive, though I had no clue what it meant and why it was a good thing. I hopped onto the Bionsen website to look at their FAQ section to see if I could figure it out.

Anti-perspirants work by blocking your sweat glands to keep you try. Most contain ingredients called aluminium salts that block your glands to prevent you from sweating.

Deodorants and anti-perspirants are two different things. Deodorants don’t stop you from sweating, but instead they prevent odours by containing antiseptic agents that kill the bacteria that cause bad smells. This means that you’re able to sweat in the way that your body was designed, rather than have your pores blocked.

Though it’s not yet been proven, aluminium and parabens in anti-perspirants and deodorants have been linked with breast cancer, which is why many women are opting for ones that don’t contain these chemicals.

Bionsen also don’t test on animals.

Bionsen’s Caring Touch deodorant is a roll on that contains vitamin E to moisturise dry skin. I’ve been using it over the last week or so.

I was a little worried that I was going sweat, but I didn’t notice any difference compared with my usual anti-perspirant. Now I’ve learnt about the possible links with cancer, I’m going to stay away from ones containing aluminium and parabens!

It’s got a very clean and gentle floral scent and I’ve been enjoying using this and think I’m going to buy this again, or maybe try their spray on deodorant.

The deodorant launches in the UK on the 9th March. You can get it from Boots for £2.35.

  1. I’ve tried this before, it’s quite good. Am using something else at the moment, but I think I will go back to this as it worked better!! Having them without the crap in them is important 🙂 xx

    1. Yeah, glad to hear you’re going out of it! I’ve just checked and they sell it at my local supermarket so I can pick up another bottle 🙂

  2. Dude this is so convenient! Literally I was looking up the risks associated with antiperspirants and even deodorants and was slightly concerned. I’ve started looking for a new, safer deodorant, and I think that this might just be what I need. The second I see it in Boots I think I might just buy it! Thank you so much for this review c:

  3. I’ve been thinking about getting a cleaner deodorant for ages now. Nice to see a budget option – the ones I was scoping out were over a tenner!

  4. I gave up my deodorant that had aluminum a few years ago. This one sounds like a good alternative.

  5. I’ve never even heard of this brand before but it sounds really good. I’ve been faithful to Nivea Black & White range but this sounds like a lovely alternative.

  6. I love that they don’t test on animals – such a small detail but so important 🙂

    1. It’s very important. Esp now when more people are understanding more and more about animal testing!

  7. I am very particular about my deodrant a using a silver protection one that is naturally antibacterial. This sounds nice floral smells I really like the only drawback with rollons they take an age to dry Lucy x
