If you’re one of the 44% of Americans suffering from sensitive skin, making the switch to natural health and beauty products can help minimize this problem.
Most natural products are also cruelty-free and don’t contain potentially harmful ingredients such as parabens and aluminum, which are both common ingredients in most deodorants.
However, when it comes to natural deodorant, a big priority is finding a product that works and continues to work.
Here we have five natural deodorants that will keep you smelling great all day.
1. Dr. Hauschka Deodorant
Available in Sage Mint and Rose, this natural deodorant is free from synthetic fragrances, parabens, and aluminum salts.
Although it’s pricey at $23 a bottle, Dr. Hauschka’s deodorant has a reputation for being highly effective at neutralizing odor. It also helps to condition under arm skin thanks to its soothing formula.
As well as being all-natural, the deodorant isn’t tested on animals and has been dermatologically approved for sensitive skin.
2. Schmidt’s Sensitive Skin Formula Deodorant
Schmidt’s natural formula is available in regular or sensitive skin and contains no artificial fragrances. The deodorant is also free from parabens, aluminum, propylene glycol and phthalates.
There are a wide variety of fragrances to choose from, including the neutral scent of Charcoal and Magnesium, and Jasmine Tea, which smells good enough to eat.
The fragrance holds out all day and the deodorant is extremely effective at masking any signs of body odor, even after you’ve sweated out your frustrations at the gym.
3. Lavanila Sport Luxe Deodorant
This solid-stick deodorant glides on without leaving any residue and comes in a variety of fragrances such as Vanilla Grapefruit and Vanilla Breeze. But if you find vanilla too sweet then you might prefer fragrance-free.
Like Lavanila’s regular natural deodorant, the sport luxe version is still all-natural, cruelty-free and vegan, and is recommended by dermatologists.
But, it also contains antibacterial and antimicrobial ingredients for a product that neutralizes odor to keep you smelling great all day.
4. Miessence Roll-on Deodorant
Miessence’s deodorant is free from petrochemicals and aluminum salts and scores very well on EWG’s Skin Deep Database. The database monitors ingredients in beauty products and the potential hazards they contain, providing added reassurance for customers.
The deodorant is available in three fragrances – feminine Tahitian Breeze, musky Ancient Spice, or aroma-free, all of which work to effectively neutralize odor to keep you fresh and dry.
5. Tom’s of Maine Natural Deodorant
This looks like any regular deodorant stick and retails at a very reasonable $5, but Tom’s of Maine is aluminum-free and contains all-natural ingredients.
You can choose from nine different scents, including Wild Lavender, Fresh Apricot, or the clean fragrance of Tea Tree.
But the best part is that it really works. The stick glides on and dries quickly without leaving any residue and will leave you smelling sweet all day long.
