So you’re trying natural beauty products? That’s great. The problem is, you might be scared to try one of the swaps you need most: a natural deodorant.
Commercial deodorants can be loaded with harmful chemicals and endocrine disrupting ingredients that have no business on our bodies (especially not so close to our breasts). The trouble is, of course, that risking a smelly, sweaty date or meeting while wearing the wrong deodorant — clean or no — just isn’t worth it for some of us.
We hit up The Chat, our sparkly new private Facebook community, where our readers asked each other which products actually work for them and dozens within our community responded. Here’s what they said…
Corpus | Corpus is one of our favorite new natural deodorants for everyday use. Impossibly chic, the long-lasting water-based formula is made with natural enzymes and plant extracts, and made without synthetics and harmful chemicals. Pretty packaging aside, the real draw is the sophisticated natural fragrance blends, which basically double as perfume. Our favorites are Green (bergamot, pink lemon, orange blossom, cardamom) and Santalum ( sandalwood, sandalwood root, Texas cedarwood, amber) CHECK OUT

Each one features soothing essential oils blend that fight odor effectively while soothing, conditioning, and nourishing the delicate skin under our arms.
