I didn’t jump on the natural deodorant right away because I tried a lot that just did.not.work. It took years of testing and eventually getting my body trained to natural deodorants to land on three that get my stamp of approval.
Lately it seems like every one is launching a deo so I still test a variety that get sent to me but I always come back to these three.
The Best Natural Deodorants
By the way, did you know that your body actually needs time to detox from conventional, chemical-forward deodorants? You have to give your system 2-3 weeks to detox and adjust (i.e.; sweat out all the toxicity that’s been built up from run of the mill deos) and it is not pleasant. So prepare yourself, take a lot of showers, wear breezy fabrics and know that it’ll be worth the effort to make the switch!
This baking soda-free deodorant was developed for those with sensitive skin like myself. I really like that the formula features activated charcoal which helps to neutralize unwanted odors. Plus, it smells really lovely! It’s got lavender and eucalyptus oils and I rely on this deodorant for particularly hot days as I think it does a great job at controlling dampness.
If you prefer roller-ball deodorant this one is for you. It’s also great for workouts and that’s when I find myself reaching for it – before I do any sort of workout this is the deo I reach for. This one is designed to create a pH environment where it’s harder for odor-causing bacteria to survive. The formula uses an acid blend to keep you from smelling. And I like that the serum isn’t sticky or hard to apply. It dries quickly and is non-staining.
This crisp, clean feeling deodorant is my #1 most days. It’s award-winning and I can understand why as it really works to keep underarm odor at bay while also effectively absorbing excess moisture and soothing sensitive skin. This clean deodorant eliminates odor-causing bacteria and I like that it offers unscented protection. (I have never understood people who like fragrance-forward deodorants!) I like that this one has a cooling aroma on application and a super silky-smooth texture so gliding it on is no issue.
I’ve been using this one as my daily deodorant throughout the year for about a year and a half. I switch to the Detox Mode one during the summer for added sweat protection largely because, due to thyroid disease, I sweat more than the average person – fun times!
Native Deodorant, $12
Years ago I tried Native and I have to say that they’ve come a long way in their formulations. Their aluminium-free deodorants are great now & they offer so many scents so you’re sure to find a favorite. My favorites are the Eucalyptus & Mint followed shortly thereafter by the Charcoal. I recommend the Charcoal is you’re particularly sweaty!
This deo features simple ingredients that actually work with no parabens, sulfates, phthalates, and no animal testing.
