I have compiled a list of my top favorite natural deodorants after trying at least 15 different brands!
It may take some trial and error to find the best natural deodorants for you. Many times, these natural deodorants have mixed reviews because they work great for some but not for others. It will be worth the search when you find one that works for you, and you can feel better about keeping those chemicals off of your skin.
We are already exposed to a high number of chemicals and toxins in our everyday lives. Replacing your conventional deodorant with a natural chemical free deodorant is one way to minimize your exposure to these toxins.
Chemicals to steer clear of are aluminum, parabens, triclosan, propylene glycol, Triethanolamine (TEA), diethanolamine (DEA), silica, talc, Steareth, and artificial colors and fragrance.
When trying out new natural deodorants, it’s a good idea to keep your back-up deodorant with you in case you need it when you are away from home. I have listed some of my favorite natural deodorants below.
Stank Stop by FATCO
Stank Stop deodorant by FATCO works the best in my opinion, but it’s not for those looking for an animal-free product since it is made from tallow from grass-fed cows. It is aluminum and paraben free, all-natural, Paleo-certified, non-toxic, chemical free, and effective for sweating and body odor.
They currently have two scents: Lavender & Clary Sage and Cypress & Coriander. The deodorant comes in a jar, a tube for easier application, and a spritz which is great to carry with you.
Purelygreat Natural Deodorants
These EWG Verified natural deodorants are free of aluminum, Triclosan, parabens, and preservatives. They are cruelty free, vegan friendly, and long-lasting deodorants, providing three to four months of daily protection.
Purelygreat comes in multiple scents including citrus, lavender, floral, tea tree, men’s spice, men’s patchouli, unscented charcoal, and unscented.
This natural deodorant comes in a jar and now in a stick (lavender and tea tree scents only)!
Schmidt’s Natural Deodorants
Schmidt’s natural deodorants are free of aluminum, propylene glycol, parabens, phthalates, and artificial fragrance. It’s certified vegan and cruelty free. It helps neutralize odor with minerals and absorb wetness with plant-based powders. Schmidt’s deodorant is made in Portland, Oregon USA.
Schmidt’s offers several scents: Jasmine Tea (my personal favorite), Rose + Vanilla, Charcoal + Magnesium, Bergamot + Lime, Lavender + Sage, Ylang-Ylang + Calendula, Cedarwood + Juniper, and fragrance free.
All Good Unscented Deodorant
All Good natural deodorants are free of aluminum, propylene glycol, parabens, phthalates, and artificial fragrance. It’s vegan and GMO free. All Good deodorants use naturally occurring enzymes and essential oils to fight odor causing bacteria.
