I’ll admit, at first the thought of swapping out my tried and true antiperspirant deodorant for an all-natural crunchy granola version made me stress sweat. Antiperspirants stop you from sweating with the active ingredient aluminum salts. While effective, aluminum salts are also linked to some pretty scary side effects including cancer. Yikes! Natural deodorants, on the other hand, are aluminum free. They keep your pits smelling fresh with body-safe ingredients like baking soda and essential oils. With natural deodorants, you may still sweat a bit (deodorant doesn’t equal antiperspirant!) but you won’t have to worry about B.O. even on the hottest summer day.
Here is Bless Box’s top 7 picks for green, all natural deodorants!
Everyone Deodorant Spray comes in a super convenient and earth-friendly non-aerosol spray bottle. It’s made with just three ingredients: water, alcohol, and pure essential oils. It’s ultra gentle and effective against odor-causing bacteria. The scent is super fresh, with calming lavender and purifying tea tree.
This is the perfect pick for those of us who can’t seem to let go of antiperspirants. This one provides 24-hour wetness and odor protection without harmful chemicals, so it’s safe enough for sensitive skin. This one is my personal favorite, and it’s a great training-wheel to get you away from using antiperspirants altogether!
Many natural deodorants rely on baking soda, which is a problem for people with sensitive skin. Luckily, Schmidt’s jasmine-tea stick smells not only incredible, it also keeps you dry with plant-based powders and coconut oil and shea butter. Bye bye baking soda!
Kopari Coconut Deodorant – $11.90
I first tried Kopari’s award wining Coconut Deodorant in November’s Bless Box! This aluminum-free Coconut Deodorant from Kopari glides on clear and lasts all day with no sticky feel. Plus, it leaves you smelling like fresh coconut milk. Made with zero harmful ingredients, aluminum or baking soda, this deodorant is non-irritating and safe for sensitive skin. Instead of chemicals and heavy metals, plant-based actives like Sage Oil and Coconut Oil fight the bacteria that causes odor. Over 100,000 people have made the switch from chemical-filled antiperspirants to Kopari’s Coconut Deodorant, and this deo was even a winner of Allure’s 2018 Best Of Beauty award!
Feeling bougie? This top shelf deo is both aluminum and alcohol-free. Plus it’s formulated with antiseptic eucalyptus extract and citronellyl to keep odor at bay. Plus, it’s effective for 24 hours, safe for sensitive skin and use after shaving. Another perk? It won’t clog your pores or stain your clothes. Plus, the scent is divine!
A classic for a reason, this all-natural option is made without aluminum, parabens, propylene glycol, or harsh chemicals. It provides long-lasting odor protection with soothing essential oils and antioxidants, and the scent is delicious and subtly feminine.
This pick from green beauty heroes Tarte is non-irritating, free from parabens, aluminum, phthalates, soy, gluten, alcohol, or animal products. Plus it’s super conditioning for dry skin, with soothing aloe and a sweet vanilla scent.
