Meet The Maker

Hear from Trace, the Founder of Natural Approach, as she shares her inspiring journey of personal struggles, to creating a line of natural deodorant balms that have transformed her life and the lives of her customers.

Hey there, I'm Trace

Thanks for stopping by. I'm the Founder and Product Developer here at Natural Approach.

Several people have asked me "what inspired you to make natural deodorant?” And the answer’s simple really:

I struggled to find a deodorant that actually worked and didn't cause any irritation.

I will never forget the day when a friend of the family said, “I think you need to change your deodorant, yours is a little stale,” and handed me a can of men’s antiperspirant.

Over the years I tried everything I could get my hands on to smell fresh, but nothing seemed to work. I still smelt funky or ended up with a nasty rash! 

The Journey Of Natural Approach

The Beginning

After trying every deodorant, antiperspirant, crystal, and aluminium infused body odour eater I could find, I wondered:

Why isn't this working? Should I resort to surgery and have my sweat glands blocked? If I had surgery, where would that sweat go?

Ewww, I cringed at these thoughts...

Discovery Of Natural Products

One day I came across natural deodorant balm and I loved the idea of using natural ingredients on my skin.

There was just one problem, I wasn't happy with the natural products I’d tried.

So I did it myself...

In 2017 I decided to have a crack at formulating my own natural deodorant balm that ticked ALL the boxes. While it wasn't easy, overtime I mastered the art of creating a formula that works consistently.

This changed my life dramatically & my confidence soared.

Natural Approach Comes To Life

I then went on to study natural skincare formulation to ensure I was undertaking best practice.

So, what began in my kitchen as a desperate attempt to resolve my own sense of personal embarrassment, has evolved into an Aussie business helping men and women care for their body with confidence.

My customers LOVE using Natural Approach deodorant balm because:

The formulation contains safe, non-toxic ingredients.

I'm transparent about the ingredients.

It's highly effective at eliminating odour causing bacteria.

There is a sensitive skin range.

They're Australian made & family owned.

There are several gorgeous scents to choose from.
