Natural Deodorant Round Up

Natural Deodorant Round Up

*these findings are based on my personal experience and opinion only.*

I don’t know about you, but it has taken me YEARS of trial and error to find the right natural deodorant for me. Beeswax? Baking soda? Fragrance? Texture? Packaging? These are all important things to consider. So, while everyone’s skin and needs are different, I thought I’d round up and rate the handful of deodorants I’ve tried most recently. I found all of these deodorants to be pretty effective at fighting body odours, but some were too harsh on my sensitive skin. It turns out I can’t tolerate baking soda in my deodorant! Maybe you’ve run in to a similar problem on your search for the perfect deodorant.

So, without further ado, here’s my Natural Deodorant Round Up


Hippy Pits

Hippy Pits

Vegan and cruelty-free
Made in Canada

Fragrance? Essential oils. 3 varieties, including unscented
Baking soda-free option? No
Texture? Firm and dry.
Package? Plastic jar

My experience: This deodorant was way too drying for my sensitive skin, but my husband loves it. It is very effective at fighting body odour and wetness, but loses points for plastic packaging and no options for sensitive skin.


Meow Meow Tweet

Meow Meow Tweet

Vegan and cruelty-free
Made in USA

Fragrance? Essential oils. Several scent varieties, no unscented option
Baking soda-free option? Yes!
Texture? Creamy
Package? Glass jar OR cardboard tube

My experience: This is my favourite natural deodorant of all time, and is available here. Gentle and moisturizing while still being effective. Bonus points for their zero waste packaging!


No Pong

No Pong

Contains Beeswax
Made in Canada

Fragrance? Essential oils. Only one scent variety
Baking soda-free option? Yes!
Texture? Creamy
Package? Metal tin

My experience: I had to try No Pong after it became so popular on social media. It works well but the beeswax content is a deal breaker for me. Also, if you don't love their signature scent, there are no other options.


Lovefresh

Lovefresh

Contains Beeswax
Made in Canada

Fragrance? Essential oils. Several scent varieties, including unscented
Baking soda-free option? No
Texture? Waxy
Package? Plastic tube or jar.

My experience: This was the first natural deodorant that I actually liked, but once I became vegan I really wanted to get away from the beeswax content. Lovefresh also loses points for plastic packaging an no baking soda-free option.


Schmidt's

Schmidt’s

Vegan and cruelty-free
Made in USA

Fragrance? Essential oils. Several scent varieties, including unscented
Baking soda-free option? No.
Texture? Very firm and dry
Package? Plastic tube.

My experience: So. Dry. While schmidt's looks and feels the most like the antiperspirant you might be used to, avoid if you have dry or sensitive skin at all. Schmidt's also loses points for their plastic packaging, and being acquired by mega-corporation Unilever.


My perfect match is our Meow Meow Tweet Baking Soda-Free Deodorant Cream. It is gentle and moisturizing enough for my extra sensitive underarm skin while being vegan and cruelty-free. Hand crafted in the USA using zero-waste packaging, Meow Meow Tweet also embodies Ardent Earth's ethos. Why not give one of their deodorant varieties a try yourself?
