8 Natural Deodorants That Are Actually Worth Trying

When it comes to natural deodorants, it's important to spend the money on one that actually works! Whether you like a spray or stick, these are the best aluminum free deodorants out there!

It’s summer – yay! But, if you live in London, it also means sticky tube rides and nowhere to escape the heat – not-so-yay! You will probably be reaching for your spray deodorant but have you considered a more natural alternative? Antiperspirants and unnatural, chemical deodorants can be bad for your health and the environment. Often, they clog up pores and do not allow your body to cool down and release sweat in a natural way. There are also more dangerous side effects that have been linked to the average antiperspirant. Alzheimer’s and Breast Cancer have both been linked to aluminum compounds found in sprays, and some might even contain infertility-causing toxic chemicals. In fact, a conventional deodorant contains triclosan, formaldehyde, parabens, diethanolamine (DEA), aluminum, aerosol-like chemicals. Why would you want that on your skin? With natural deodorants, you wouldn’t have too.

If used properly, a deodorant can stop you sweating as much and combat bad smells. What actually creates that body odor is sweat coming into contact with the natural bacteria on your skin. But, you can easily change this reaction by opting for natural deodorants. Here’s a list of our favourites!

Salt of the Earth

Work with your body naturally, not against it, using this stick deodorant. The simple but effective formula works without blocking the skin’s pores or leaving behind stains on your clothes. This crystal-stick deodorant lasts for months if used with proper care. Unscented and unisex, it offers 24-hour protection. Apply to damp skin after washing.

Lush

Lush offer a range of powder and solid deodorants. A powder deodorant is a great option for those who are more active because it stays on all day long. This highly effective deodorant powder can be used on underarms, on feet, or in trainers. It’s packed with powerful ingredients such as tea tree and thyme oil, sage and rosemary powders to keep BO at bay.

Neal’s Yard Remedies

While Neal’s Yard offers both roll-on and spray deodorants, we love their sprays! Their Lemon & Coriander Deodorant combines eight natural essential oils, giving you a gentle and effective way to face the day with confidence and freshness that truly lasts. The zesty blend of lemon and coriander naturally keeps bacteria away.

Cowshed

Would you consider a deodorant cream? Cowshed’s herbal cream helps you feel dry and confident. Aloe Vera and Shea Butter soothe and condition skin, while Peppermint, Spearmint, and Lemongrass essential oils have antimicrobial and antiseptic properties.

Dr. Hauschka’s Sage-Mint Deodorant avoids pore-restricting aluminum in favor of sage and witch hazel extracts – two naturally effective ingredients for BO control. The gentle formula helps adjust skin pH to discourage odor production while also offering a light, fresh scent.

Deodorant by Aesop

“Humans do not produce BO, it’s the bacteria that live in our armpits that generate that characteristically horrid smell.” Good news: the Zinc Ricinoleate in Aesop’s deodorant kills them. This all-natural formula also contains lemongrass, tea tree, coriander, witch hazel, clove, thyme and vetiver root, which are all naturally anti-microbial.
