We Compiled a List of the 10 Top-Rated Natural Deodorants on Amazon so You Don't Have to – Parade


As beauty consumers, we’re becoming more mindful about the products we use on our bodies and the lasting effects they may have, and today there are a lot of clean makeup brands and natural deodorants on the market to choose from. Some of the latter are applied just like their drugstore counterparts, while others involve additional steps like using an armpit mask to draw out impurities before applying the product for full effectiveness.

In addition to going makeup free and creating organic skincare lines, celebrities are also making the switch to natural deodorant. Kourtney Kardashian has expressed her fondness for Schmidt’s Naturals Ylang-Ylang + Calendula Deodorant. Big Little Lies star Shailene Woodley told The New York Times she uses products from Agent Nateur and Meow Meow Tweet, admitting that, “It’s very hard to find natural deodorants that work well. But I find that if I rotate between these two, I smell less than with other natural deos.”

As Woodley knows, switching to a natural deodorant from an antiperspirant with aluminum can be a daunting process. Since everybody reacts to certain formulas differently, you likely need to try a few before finding the right one for you. There’s the dreaded detox period that may cause unrecognizably horrid underarm odor while your body adjusts to the new formula. Then there’s the potential for armpit rash, which is often caused by a reaction to baking soda, a common ingredient in natural deodorants.

A look through the reviews sections of natural deodorants on amazon.com reveals (too many?) photos of painful pit rash. Thankfully, those over-sharers have done the dirty work and left word as to what works and what doesn’t. To hopefully minimize your suffering as you make the switch, here’s a list of 10 of the top-rated natural deodorants on Amazon.com. They all have a rating of 3.9/5 or higher and at least 900 reviews.

Prices shown are full retail prices, not sale or Prime member prices.

Schmidts-Geranium-Flower-Natural-Deodorant

Schmidt’s Deodorant Geranium Flower for Sensitive Skin
Price: $10
Rating: 3.9/5

Schmidt’s is a favorite for natural deodorant users, including Kourtney Kardashian. Although some people do have reactions to the formulas with baking soda, the sensitive skin formulas work well for most and they come in delicious scents like Jasmine Tea and Coconut Pineapple. It’s the Geranium Flower scent that’s won most people over, though. With over 900 reviews and a 3.9/5 rating, this one is worth a try. Another Schmidt’s standby is the brand’s Ylang-Ylang + Calendula deodorant jar which has nearly 4,500 reviews and a 3.9/5 rating, if you can handle the paste application method. Schmidt’s also recently released new Moon Flower and Waves scents, available at Target, and Water + Wood with Activated Charcoal, available at Walmart.

Nasanta Magnesium Deodorant
Price: $14.90
Rating: 4.1/5

The Australian brand has tested its product for sensitive skin, making it without irritants like aluminum, parabens, alcohol and baking soda. Available in an unscented formula and a “womens” formula with aloe and chamomile to soothe razor burn and hydrate underarms, the main draw is the magnesium, which the brand claims provides “energy production, nerve transmission, protein synthesis, muscle relaxation” and more. It’s applied as a roll on and goes on wet so you’ll want to wait a few minutes before dressing to avoid white marks. The unscented formula has over 960 customer reviews; users love that it keeps them odor-free through the workday, even in South Florida summers, and that it’s non-irritating.

Crystal-Mineral-Deodorant-Stick

Crystal Mineral Deodorant Stick
Price: $7
Rating: 4/5

An impressive 3,000 customer reviews prove that Crystal is still a top choice after 35 years on the market. The mineral deodorant stick is a block of fragrance-free pure mineral salt that forms an invisible barrier to literally block odor without messing with your sweat glands. It’s the most cost-effective product on this list, since it can last for more than a year even when used daily, and since it’s just salt, it’s impossible to get white marks or stains on your clothing. There’s also the option of a Crystal Mineral Deodorant Stone that can be stored on a nifty little tray, and if neither of those work for you, Crystal makes a roll-on formula, a deodorant spray and mineral-enriched invisible solid stick deodorants that have a light fragrance.

Weleda Deodorant Spray
Price: $11
Rating: 3.9/5

This deodorant spray is available in three scents derived from essential oils to neutralize odor: Citrus, Wild Rose and Sage. Some users did find the scent a bit abrasive at first, but noted that it didn’t linger. One even described it as aromatherapy-like. The packaging features a non-aerosol spray pump and a recyclable glass bottle. Most of the 1,350 reviews for this product were positive and reviewers love how long-lasting it is, though some felt it was mildly irritating because of the alcohol in the product.

Primal-Pit-Paste

Primal Pit Paste All-Natural Lavender Deodorant Jar
Price: $8.29
Rating: 4/5

With almost 1,500 customer reviews, people love the eight different scents, which include Coconut Lime, Orange Vanilla, Jasmine, Lavender and more. Made with organic coconut oil, shea butter and essential oils, this product neutralizes odor instead of masking it, while organic arrowroot powder absorbs moisture. It also has a lower price than other many of the other products on this list. It comes in a stick formula, which has a 3.8/5 rating and a higher price at $12, but could be worth a try if you prefer the traditional packaging over applying paste.

Sam’s Natural Deodorant Stick
Price: $9.95
Rating: 4/5

This certified vegan and cruelty-free deodorant claims that just one or two light swipes of product are all that’s needed for it to work. Of the over 1,500 reviews, many agree. Reviewers are also fans of the 17 nature-inspired scents like Tobacco, Leather, Cedar, Oak Moss, Chestnut, Wilderness, Sandalwood and more; the Original scent, a “mild scent of hardwoods,” is still the most popular. The company is also doing its part to be more eco-conscious and the packaging is 100% recyclable. Even the label is printed with non-toxic wax inks.

Little-Seed-Farm-Deodorant-Cream

Little Seed Farm Natural Deodorant Cream
Price: $14
Rating: 4.6/5

This product has over 900 customer reviews and the highest rating on this list at a 4.6/5. People who had been using natural deodorants for over a decade found this one to be life-changing. The deodorant is made with organic ingredients on a farm in Tennessee. It comes as a cream in a glass jar, which you can scoop out with the scoop stick that’s included and apply by gently rubbing a pea-sized amount into clean armpits with your fingertips. It’s available in seven different scents, but the activated charcoal formulas are best at fighting odor and absorbing moisture. Another plus: the company believes in zero waste shipping. Products are shipped with biodegradable packing peanuts and without unnecessary product boxes or extra materials.

MagSol Organics Magnesium Deodorant
Price: $14.95
Rating: 4.3/5

This magnesium deodorant is up to almost 2,000 reviews. It comes in six scents including Jasmine, Sweet Orange, Rose, Lavender, Lemongrass and Sandalwood. While some natural deodorants may be on the dry side, this one has a smooth gliding formula. It’s also made without baking soda, so there’s less chance for irritation. Many reviewers with sensitive skin claim this one to be the solution to their natural deodorant woes. Users also note there’s no issue with it staining clothing. There’s the option to purchase a sample size for half the price if you can’t fully commit.

Balil-Secrets

Bali Secrets Natural Deodorant
Price: $14
Rating: 4.1/5

The ingredient list for this natural deodorant is short, containing just seaweed, aloe vera extract, natural mineral salt, water, a bit of acohol and natural plant essences. Over 4,700 reviewers like how the roll-on applies smoothly, the deodorant keeps them odor-free throughout the day and that while the scents can be a little strong at first, they do calm down quickly. Some favor the Rose, Aloe or Sandalwood scents while others find the Original to be less overpowering.

Underarmed
Price: $16
Rating: 4.4/5

Touted as a “luxury deodorant,” with a $16 price tag, Underarmed is the most expensive natural deodorant on this list. However, several of the nearly 3,400 reviewers comment on how a little goes a long way, so it should last a while. You may notice it pilling while you apply, but it’s an easy fix; just rub in excess product with your fingertips or keep your arms at your sides and quickly move them forward and back a few times, as if you were running, until the product is rubbed in. Most reviewers are fans of the Lavender scent with eucalyptus and honey, which they say smells more clean than overly floral. There’s also an unscented formula, with over 1,000 reviews and a 4.2/5 rating.

If none of those have you convinced, here are two rising natural deodorant stars to try:

SmartyPits-square

SmartyPits

Stacia Guzzo founded SmartyPits after her mother discovered she had breast cancer when she found a lump right under her armpit. Guzzo started researching breast cancer and discovered studies that linked aluminum in antiperspirants to breast cancer and Alzheimer’s Disease. That inspired her to created an aluminum-free, paraben free and phthalate free deodorant that would control oder all day. SmartyPits comes in amazing scents like Rosemary & Mint, Sweet Orange & Bergamot, Coconut Mango, Cool Cucumber and Eucalyptus & Spearmint. It goes for $15-$16 a stick and the company donates $0.30 from every large stick to breast cancer research.

Lumē

You may have seen a commercial for Lumē in your social media feeds. Lumē is an aluminum-free deodorant “for underarms and private parts” that was developed by a doctor. It has a clear water-based formula, claims to offer 72-hour odor control and is non-irritating and safe for all parts of your body. Some people even like using it on their feet! Currently it’s available on lumedeodorant.com for $14 a stick or $19 a tube.
