A couple months ago I was actively looking for a natural deodorant. I sweat for real for real (for real), so I figured the summer months would be the best test of a new deodorant. Not only did I make the video below showing the few products I’d already purchased, tried or planned on trying, but I proceeded to get a slew of suggestions in the comment section which I’ll list below.
First check my video:
and now that it’s been a few months here are my thoughts on all three products mentioned/shown in the video.
I don’t see the specific deodorant I showed in the video on the Adidas website but I have had it for a long time and it may be discontinued. Either way, it was just a deodorant. not an antiperspirant, doubt it was all natural but it did work well.
This deodorant is meh. I would never wear it outside of the house. If I shower and put it on in the morning, by noon thirty I’m flirting with funky. Fail.
Look out for a thorough review of this deodorant coming soon but for now I’ll say it works incredibly well but I stopped using it last week because my arm pits were getting darker.
This product comes in both crystal and spray and I actually use the spray while hubby switched to using the crystal after trying the spray because he said it was easier to use. I’m actually wearing this one right now as I type this post, and typically reach for it on the days I don’t have to leave the house. It works extremely well in that circumstance but if I have to leave the house on a warm/hot day I preferred the Oyin product before for true funk prevention. Hubby, on the other hand, has had great luck using the crystal version and continues to do so (he started this journey with me when I decided to switch deodorants in case you were wondering)
So as of today is, I’m still searching for the perfect everyday-wear natural deodorant that actually works with my body chemistry all day, even in hot weather, and does not irritate or discolor the skin under my arms. Haven’t found that holy grail yet, but I’ve gotten a lot of suggestions from others which I’ll list for you below. LEGGO!

We’re meant to sweat to rid our body of toxins and to regulate our temperatures. Our deodorants won’t stop you from sweating but they will help to balance perspiration and keep you smelling fresh.
You could eat this stuff! (But we suggest rubbing it on your smelly pits, not your morning toast!) This is not an antiperspirant, but you wouldn’t know it because it keeps you dry. It is, however, important to sweat and release toxins.
After years of trying every “natural” deodorant out there, and finally giving in to the thought I’d have to go back to the nasty, aluminum-laden, artificially-fragranced drug store toxins. That is, until one fateful day when I had an epiphany, came up with this formula, tried it out for weeks, and since then, I have not spent one minute smelling bad, and a bonus, my underarms are much more dry than with the “average” natural deodorant (thanks to the corn starch) and are smooth and shaving-bump-free!
This brand has never worked for me but someone suggested it.
Clinically proven 24-hour odor protection. Dermatologist tested. Tom’s of Maine Long Lasting deodorant sticks provide clinically proven 24-hour odor protection to help keep you feeling fresh throughout the day! As part of the line of long-lasting, aluminum-free deodorant sticks, this product contains the botanical ingredient hops to inhibit the growth of odor-causing bacteria and zinc ricinoleate to absorb odor. The Fresh Apricot stick contains 100% natural fragrance to help keep you feeling confidently fresh all day!
ONLY the lavender and white tea roll-on was stressed by the suggester LOL.
Ordinary deodorants merely cover up odor with unnecessary and unwanted chemicals. Made from natural mineral salts, Crystal® deodorants do one simple thing that makes them better than the rest: they neutralize bacteria at their source to prevent body odor – even after strenuous activity.
Contains ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda and natural plant extracts to absorb and fight odor. Essentials™ Deodorant does not contain aluminum, parabens, colorants or animal-derived ingredients. This fragrance is sure to leave you feeling fresh and clean with its blend of sparkling citrus, fresh lavender and soft florals.
A liquid mineral crystal formula, naturally scented, in a convenient roll-on that really works!

Our natural deodorants not only keep your underarms fresh all day, but are long lasting and pH-balanced using natural fragrances. All of our products are Phthalate free, Propylene Glycol free, Aluminum free and Paraben free.
It is important to use a deodorant not an antiperspirant as your body needs to sweat. Non aluminum deodorant is the perfect choice, which deodorants are aluminum free? All Purelygreat products! Our unscented natural deodorant for sensitive skin has only 3 ingredients – a simple, healthy, cruelty free deodorant. Our all natural vegan deodorants are the best non antiperspirant deodorant choice.
Finally an alternative to sticky liquid or waxy stick deodorant that is aluminum and talc free. We’ve combined the natural deodorizing properties of baking soda with the superior absorbent properties of cornstarch and arrowroot. The result is a clean, soft, delicately-scented natural powder with the odor fighting capabilities of the toughest deodorants on the market. A portion of the proceeds from this product are donated to breast cancer research.
This product gives long-lasting protection from perspiration odors. Contains no aluminum salts. Will not smart or sting normal skin.
Alrighty, that’s my spiel on funk management of the natural persuasion … hope it helps you on your search. Look out for more in depth reviews in the future.
