Ben & Anna
After several years in Berlin, Ben & Anna decided to leave the urban jungle behind them and to move back to the countryside of their Hessian homeland.
Ben & Anna as a strictly vegan couple had always paid close attention to what they consumed, always buying products from sustainable and organic sources.
While looking for a suitable deodorant for themselves, it needed to be vegan and not tested on animals, natural and eco-conscious, it was impossible for Ben & Anna to find anything that fit their ethics.
Ben & Anna decided to develop their own natural and organic deodorant which is based solely on all natural ingredients and comes in ecological, recycled and recycable paper tube.
BEN & ANNA
Ben & Anna is a deodorant brand that is inspired by nature.
Their certified organic and vegan deodorants are aluminium-free, paraben-free, with natural ingredients for more ecological deodorants that are good for everyone... for the skin, even sensitive skin, and for the planet.
With their delicate fragrances, Ben & Anna vegan deodorants are suitable for both women and men.
History of the Ben & Anna brand
Ben & Anna are a German couple who love nature. After living in Berlin for several years, they decided to leave the city life and move to the countryside.
This change of life has led them to question their lifestyles. They pay particular attention to what they eat and become vegan. Ben & Anna are very interested in health and environmental issues.
They searched for a long time for a deodorant that met their criteria: natural ingredients, vegan, and not tested on animals. When they couldn't find what they were looking for, they decided to develop their own brand of deodorants made from natural ingredients.
After many attempts in their kitchen, a brand new type of deodorant was born, completely vegan, acting only with the power of nature and without any chemicals.

Industrial deodorants are dangerous for your health
In industrial deodorants, you find aluminium salt for its ability to stop perspiration by obstructing the pores. However, sweating is a necessary, even vital action, as it allows the body to maintain a good temperature and to evacuate certain toxins. Aluminium is therefore unhealthy.
If you pay attention to the fact that your deodorant is labelled: "Aluminium free", many other substances in industrial deodorants are dangerous for the skin, such as alcohol or parabens.
The above-mentioned chemical ingredients should be avoided when choosing a deodorant because they are harmful to your health. Some researchers prove that they are responsible for certain diseases such as breast cancer and Alzheimer's.
By choosing a natural deodorant, you say goodbye to all these toxic ingredients. What's more, natural deodorant is just as effective as industrial deodorant. Respect your skin and your health!
