13 New Natural Deodorants That Don’t Suck


The latest in aluminum-free hygiene

Summer will be here before we know it, and as excited as we may be for the beach, rooftop margaritas, and Summer Fridays, it’s inevitable that we’ll find ourselves miserable and melting in sweltering heat at one point or another. This means it’s pretty crucial to go into summer equipped with a hardworking, long-lasting deodorant to combat any potential bad body odor and keep us fresh all day long (because who has time to reapply?).

Luckily for us, fans of all-natural everything, the natural deodorant market has been growing in a major way, making it much easier—and more affordable—to jump on the natural personal care bandwagon.

We put some of the newest natural deodorant sticks, creams, sprays, and more to the test, and, we must say, we’re pretty pleased with the results. Rather than preventing our bodies from sweating (which is a completely normal and healthy body function, by the way) like traditional antiperspirants or using harsh chemicals to keep the stink at bay, these formulas use all sorts of nature-based ingredients such as arrowroot powder and essential oils to deodorize, absorb, and keep you feeling fresh. Some even have hydrating goodness, such as coconut oil or shea butter, making your anti-B.O. experience a luxurious and nourishing one. Why wouldn’t you treat your deodorant application as a feel-good self-care ritual?

Read on to get the lowdown on 13 no-fail products to stick in your medicine cabinet before it gets too hot.
