Which Natural Deodorant is Right for You?

Just like we each have a unique fingerprint, our bodies each have a chemistry that’s all our own, meaning no one natural deodorant will work best for every body. With so many different formulations to choose from, it can be difficult to know which one is right for you. So we’re bringing you all the information you need to make an informed deodorant decision that will leave your pits looking pretty and feeling healthy! 

Baking Soda

A tried-and-true natural deodorant classic! Baking soda neutralizes odor at the source and absorbs wetness, for maximum-strength protection without all the questionable ingredients you find in conventional deodorants and antiperspirants. However, everyone responds differently to its pH. So if you have skin sensitivities or are unsure how your body will respond to baking soda, we recommend choosing a baking soda free formula or using a skin-soothing primer serum before applying our aluminum free baking soda deodorant.


Zinc oxide is an innovative new addition to the natural deodorant lineup, with anti-bacterial properties that help prevent odor from developing in the first place. At the same time, it helps protect and soothe skin, making it the best natural deodorant without baking soda. Our non-nano zinc formula is pure, powerful protection that works for every body - even kiddos.


Activated charcoal is known for its ability to draw out toxins and impurities. When incorporated into a deodorant, it’s basically a juice cleanse for your armpits. You can do a pit detox periodically for optimal underarm health, but it’s particularly important when transitioning from aluminum-based deodorants and antiperspirants to help purge years worth of buildup trapped in your pores.


Depending on your body chemistry, you may find that your precious pits require a delicate touch. For those ultra-sensitive friends, we’ve formulated our unscented magnesium deodorant to leave you smelling fresh and clean with the fewest possible ingredients.

Witch Hazel

Another great baking soda free option is an all-natural spray deodorant like our witch hazel Pit Pumps. Perfect for a mid-day refresh or layered under your deodorant for a boost of odor-fighting power, witch hazel formulas are also an ideal option for those with skin sensitivities.

I have been a long time customer and have noticed you no longer have the different strengths in the jar deodorants. I use to order the strong, then you changed it to #3, and now I have no idea what to order.
I have always loved your deodorants, I am hoping I don’t have to find something new to use.

Thank you,
Jennifer Piazza
