If you thought talking about politics can be sticky, just wait until natural deodorants come up in conversation. People tend to have opinions on the matter—particularly because they haven’t always had the best reputation. But it’s been years since they first hit the market, and with one swipe of the latest products available, you might consider making a natural deodorant part of your daily routine.
The best natural deodorants are eco-friendly and don’t cause any irritation. More than a few Well+Good staffers switched to natural deodorants, and they’re never looking back. These are the best of the best.
The best natural deodorants
1. Corpus Natural Deodorant, $24
“I’ve tried a lot of natural deodorants in my day, and my biggest gripe is that by 3 p.m. the inside of my shirt is coated with a thick baking soda paste that reminds me a lot of the DIY volcanos my best bud Caroline and I used to make when we were kids. I love Corpus Santalum because it’s a slick gel-like texture that stops odor with a fragrance that’s so good it has no right being lumped in as a deodorant.” —Ali Finney, beauty and fitness director

2. Weleda Sage 12h Deodorant Spray, $14
“I’m a fan of anything that comes in a glass bottle. Aren’t we all? That said, the Weleda sage deodorant spray is so much more than its luxe packaging. As an admittedly sweaty gal—no matter the season—I pray to, swear by, would marry this deo. It’s a spray, so it lasts forever, is dermatologically tested, works for all skin types, has no antiperspirants or synthetic preservatives, and is vegan-friendly and cruelty-free. Need I say more?” —Saanya Ali, editorial projects associate

3. Native Plastic-Free Deodorant, $13
“I’ve been on the natural deodorant train for a decade now, but I’ve struggled to find one that isn’t housed in plastic packaging. No longer! Native now offers five of its deodorants in paperboard packaging. It’s the same stink-stopping, sweat-absorbing formula I’ve used for years, just in an earth-friendly tube.” —Annie Tomlin, Well+Good Council editor

“I’m a sweaty person, and I’m really hoping none of my current crushes are reading this right now, and I am thus wary of natural deodorants. But this stick from Curie actually manages to keep me dry. Also, neroli is one of my favorite scents, so I was delighted to find it as one of the options here. They also sell it in a candle that I’m similarly obsessed with.” —Allie Flinn, Well+Good contributor

5. Phlur Clean Deodorant, $20
“When I first caught a whiff of the Phlur Hanami fragrance, I was in love—so when I saw that the perfume brand entered body care, I had immediate heart-eyes. The deodorant works to keep me smelling fresh all day (thanks to arrowroot powder and baking soda), plus CBD oil to soothe the underarm area. But, obviously, the best part is the scent: Blanche gives off white floral vibes that make my pits smell really dreamy.” —Rachel Lapidos, beauty and fitness editor
