With summer just about here, it will soon be a hard time for our deodorants especially for those that don’t contain aluminum. There are different reasons why you might want to use natural deodorant and probably the most common is sensitive skin in armpit area. Did you ever find your armpits itching and red from using antiperspirant? Or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding and you would like to avoid chemicals in your daily routine? Well, then natural deodorants are for you. The problem with natural deodorants is that many don’t work. Some let you sweat, some don’t hide smells, and some didn’t do anything at all. I did a crush test for 20 (!) natural deodorants and here are 7 of them that do work.

 

 

#1. Schmidt’s Natural Deodorant, Lavender and Sage

Hands down this is my absolute favorite! No sweat smell at the end of a hectic day. No smell after jogging. I do not have to reapply it in the middle of the day and i assure you – i am a sweater. I mean it. Flaws? It does not have any…for me:), but some might find the jar packaging not the most convenient. It comes with a bunch of different scents but my favorite is Lavender + Sage.

#2. Dr. Hauschka Deodorant, Sage Mint

First thing you notice is it’s perfect for summer mint smell. So refreshing, yet delicate (don’t worry: you will not smell like toothpaste). It works great throughout the day. No need to reapply. Roller packaging makes it super-easy to use.

#3. Weleda Citrus Deodorant

Easy to use, a quick spritz and you’re good to go. The bottle lasts a really long time. It works great, does not leave stains on clothes and really has such a pleasant scent.

#4. Soapwalla – Deodorant Cream

A great formula of vegetable powders, clay, and essential oil to absorb moisture and eliminate odors. It blends in clear and absorbs quickly which makes it a perfect go-to everyday deodorant.

#5. PiperWai Natural Deodorant

This deodorant is based on activated charcoal which absorbs wetness (activated charcoal can absorb 1000x its weight in moisture keeping you dry without stains on your clothing). Impressive, huh? All of the ingredients are gentle on sensitive skin and this is a great option for those who have an allergy to baking soda-based deodorants.

#6. PRIMAL PIT PASTE Unscented Deodorant

This natural deodorant might the choice for those who does not want deodorant to have any scent. Made with Non-Aluminum Baking Soda, Organic Shea Butter, Organic Coconut Oil and other great all natural ingredients. Works all day long and does not interfere with your perfume or body mist.

#7. Organic Island, Probiotic Deodorant Stick

Another great option for those who like unscented deodorants. This handcrafted deodorant not only has a all-natural formula, but also contains probiotics which are known to be soothing for our skin. It comes in a stick packaging so it’s pretty easy to use.
