The Best Natural Deodorant


My life changed once I found the best natural deodorant and I want to share it with you now.

I am always on the lookout for the best vegan products but this one is one the of the best.

I sweat a lot and I also work shift work which means I need a deodorant that can work well for a long period of time.

I used to work 13 hr shifts and finding a good deodorant that would last more than a few hours was seemingly impossible for me. I

really didn’t like using regular deodorants or antiperspirants but I tried many of those also.

I wanted to switch to one with natural ingredients but this proved difficult because I tried probably over 10 different ones but none of them really worked that well.

To be fair even the regular one, I think it was Old Spice, didn’t last for very long. Antiperspirants didn’t cut it for me either because I couldn’t bring myself to wear that stuff on a daily basis. It would also turn the underarm areas of my shirts into a chalky white bristle board over time.

What is The Best Natural Deodorant?

I had given up hope that I would find a natural deodorant that was vegan and actually worked but luckily a friend of mine found Element Botanicals at a health food store in Kensington Market in Toronto. This company makes the best deodorant I have ever tried, hands down!

Element Botanicals makes “…botanically charged, aromatherapy spiked goods, featuring wild-harvested and homegrown plants, all of which have been carefully chosen for their benefits and uses in traditional herbalism.”

They were founded in 2005 and run their shop in B.C. but you can find their products online and they ship all over the US and Canada.

The fragrance I use is called Man Up but there are many others to choose from.

Why is this the best Deodorant?

What I think works so well about this brand is that they have ingredients that actively fight against bacteria and thus you don’t smell. Most other deodorants just try to mask the smell with a different one. Check out these ingredients:

  • Glycine soy wax
  • coconut oil
  • Baking Soda
  • Grape Seed Oil
  • Candelilla Wax
  • Corn Starch
  • Organic Cocoa Butter
  • Zinc Oxide
  • Silk Powder
  • Organic Olive Oil
  • Calendula Flower
  • Comfrey Leaf and Root
  • Matricaria Extract
  • Plantain Root
  • Rosehip Fruit
  • Carrot Tissue Oil
  • Vitamin E
  • Green and Black Tea (Kombucha)
  • Siberian Ginseng
  • Essential Oils

Since I found this deodorant several years ago I have not used anything else and I don’t think you will either if you try it! They also have many other products that I haven’t really tried yet (other than their face cream which is amazing as well).

Have you tried this product yet? If not give it a shot and leave a comment below on what you think.

If you are looking for another option though this one also sounds promising because it has antibacterial properties and aluminum free.

Earth Deodorant

This aluminum-free deodorant boasts an antibacterial and anti-fungal formula and it includes Bentonite clay for added detox benefits. The scent “EARTH” offers a refreshing experience similar to walking through a steam room, with notes of Tea Tree, Rosemary, Cedarwood, Sage, and Lime.

Key Ingredients:
  • Cocoa Seed Butter (Theobroma cacao): Provides a smooth application and moisturizing benefits.
  • Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera): Known for its antibacterial properties.
  • Candelilla Wax (Euphorbia cerifera): Acts as a natural thickener and moisturizer.
  • Mango Seed Butter (Mangifera indica): Adds a creamy texture and nourishes the skin.
  • Sunflower Seed Oil (Helianthus annuus): Rich in vitamins A and E, it helps to protect and rejuvenate the skin.
  • Zinc Oxide: Non-nano particles that help to eliminate odor-causing bacteria.
  • Sodium Bicarbonate: Non-aluminum baking soda to neutralize odors.
  • Bentonite Clay: Provides detoxifying properties.
  • Arrowroot Powder (Maranta arudinacea): Absorbs moisture and keeps the skin dry.
  • Essential Oils:
    • Tea Tree Leaf Oil (Melaleuca alternifolia): Antibacterial and anti-fungal.
    • Rosemary Leaf Oil (Rosmarinus officinalis): Provides a fresh scent and additional antibacterial properties.
    • Cedarwood Oil (Cedrus deodora): Adds a woody fragrance and has anti-inflammatory properties.
    • Sage Oil (Salvia sclarea): Known for its deodorizing and cleansing properties.

This combination of ingredients ensures effective odor control while providing a natural and refreshing scent.
