Top 5 Natural Deodorants

Top 5 Natural Deodorants

Even if you don’t have bad body odor, chances are that you’re applying an underarm deodorant in an attempt to leave you fresh and approachable. Interestingly, how many of us actually take the time to review the ingredients in our deodorant, or even know if it is safe?

If you’re concerned that your underarm deodorant may increase your risk of cancer or other health issues, why not choose a product that does not contain these chemicals. 

Here are some of the best organic deodorants available that really do absorb wetness and will leave you smelling fresh.


Weleda’s deodorant sprays (rose, citrus and sage) are third-party certified by various organizations including BDIH, NaTrue and Demeter, and the company is a signer of the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics Pact.

Weleda Wild Rose is a “natural antibacterial” and it appears to be the most effective of the three Weleda deodorant products available for those hot and sweaty days. So it’s not cheap ($15), but you get more for your dollar compared to other so-called natural high-end deodorants.

If you have $23 in your pocket, Dr. Hauschka is the King of natural deodorant. It’s third party-certified (by BDIH), comes in two options, Floral and Fresh, with the latter smelling and working great on men. The ingredients are as organic as can be, and it’s very effective compared to other so-called natural deodorants. And yes people, even Martha Stewart swears by it.  


Lafe’s Organic Baby Mother To Be Deodorant Spray ($7.99) is so organic and clear of any harmful ingredients, the Environmental Working Group gives it a zero hazard rating. It only contains purified water, organic aloe vera extract and mineral salts. For those interested in other products by this company, Lafe’s offers other choices including hemp sticks and five varieties of roll-ons. One side note: although the company has signed the Compact for Safe Cosmetics, they’re currently considered “non-compliant” because they haven’t yet fully listed all of their ingredients on product labels.


Spray on the fresh scent of nature. This natural herbal deodorant allows the body to sweat, which is a natural cleansing process necessary to release toxins. With an essential oil blend of sage, lemon and lavender to help neutralize odors naturally. Smelling good naturally is no sweat. Burt’s Bees is also Leaping Bunny-certified. The ingredient list for the Burt’s Bees Herbal Deodorant ($8) is perfectly natural (though there are no organic ingredients) and the deodorant is also clear of any harmful ingredients. 


For ($7.20) you can buy the Winner of the Geneva Award, Dr. mist Fluid Spray. This product is inspired by the Dead Sea and kills body odor for up to 3 days. Dr. mist spray does not contain any Aluminum, Fragrance, or Alcohols and embraces an environmental-friendly and hygienic concept process.
