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 workout class or meeting while wearing the wrong deodorant — clean or no — just isn’t worth it for some of us.
In 2019, we hit up readers to ask which products actually worked for you and we got a ton of responses. We’ve added four more products that have launched since that we think are worth it too…
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).
Hume Supernatural DeodOrant | We love this plant-based deodorant for the formula of probiotics and prebiotics to support the skin’s natural microbiome. Plus, the mineral-rich formula includes plant botanicals to fight odor. With 7 scent options, there’s something that suits every body.
Lavanilla | A reader favorite. This award-winning, aluminum-free deodorant smells fresh in a way that sparks instant nostalgia. Each one features soothing essential oils blend that fight odor effectively while soothing, conditioning, and nourishing the delicate skin under our arms. It’s formulated to be non-irritating, allergy-tested, and does not contain aluminum, mineral oils, or synthetic fragrances.
Agent Nateur HOLI(STICK) | This chic, long-lasting deodorant is made with food-grade ingredients. The formula includes raw organic honey, lavender and eucalyptus, avocado butter and other soothing natural oils. And, yes, it really works.
BEAUTYCOUNTER | Aptly named The Clean Deo, this new aluminum-free deodorant does double duty by neutralizing odor and absorbing sweat. Non-GMO cornstarch and baking soda do the heavy lifting to keep you dry, while coconut oil and shea butter keep skin soft. We love the refillable packaging. Schmidt’s | This mineral enriched natural deodorant contains activated charcoal, which helps soaks up moisture and draw out and eliminate smell-inducing toxins. The addition of magnesium helps the body produce protective enzymes and antioxidants that help neutralize bacteria.
Salt & Stone | This natural deodorant has become a cult fave not only for its chic packaging that looks great on any vanity, but for its subtle scents that are perfect for everyday wear. The best-selling formula is made without aluminum, alcohol, parabens, or phthalates.Blume | Blume deodorant contains probiotic that helps fight odor by balancing out the bacteria that cause it. It works for 24-hours without harmful chemicals, which is a major win in the natural deodorant department.
