Switching to an aluminum-free natural deodorant is a great way to avoid some of the most toxic ingredients that are still widespread in the conventional deodorant market. Remember that green apple Lady Speed Stick that flew off shelves in the 90s? Turns out those antiperspirant properties weren’t the best choice when it comes to looking after your endocrine system or skin health. We now know traditional antiperspirants use a whack of chemicals to curb our natural sweat production. But if we’re looking to lessen our toxic intake, is there a natural alternative that actually works? We put some of the best natural sticks in the biz to the test, and here’s what we came up with.

Best Unscented Natural Deodorant

An effective and natural deodorant from Blume.

Blume: This is the newest natural deodorant to join the GK Family and it doesn’t disappoint! With a simple formula - you can pronounce every ingredient - this is the perfect fit for someone with sensitive underarms or those wanting an unscented deodorant. The secret to keeping body odor and dampness at bay is Blume’s use of probiotics in their formula. We love this vegan and cruelty-free option.

Best Baking Soda-Free Natural Deodorant

Kaia Naturals Takesumi Detox: If you find baking soda deodorants are giving you armpit rash, consider switching to a charcoal deodorant. Kaia Naturals uses activated bamboo charcoal to gently clarify and purge toxins from the underarm. They’ve coined this process the “Takesumi Detox,” which was inspired by the Japanese secret for odour control and detoxification. If you’re switching over from an antiperspirant, it can take 2-4 weeks for your body to adjust to the use of this product - but it's well worth the wait!
