I am often asked what my current favorite natural deodorants might be, and truthfully I have been using the same brands for quite a while. While I have been maintaining the stay-at-home mandate, and observing strict social distancing protocols, I still wear my favorite deodorants on a daily basis. Here are the deodorants that are tried and true for me.
An Uplifting Citrus. Essential oils of crisp grapefruit and lime combine for a crisp and fresh feeling.
This All-Natural, freshly scented deodorant provides superior, long-lasting odor protection. Soothing essential oils blend with powerful anti-oxidants and beta glucan technology for daily defense and nourishment. Clinically Tested. Dermatologist Recommended. No Aluminum. No Paraben. No Propylene Glycol. No Harsh Chemicals.
CRYSTAL has two recent additions scents to their CRYSTAL Mineral-Enriched Deodorant collection ($6.15 each from www.thecrystal.com): Mountain Fresh and Freshly Minted are unisex scents that can be used by the whole family for effective all-day odor protection, but these are not antiperspirants and therefore they will not prevent sweating. I find this formula particularly effective, fuss-free and pleasant to use, and of course the list of healthy ingredients instills confidence rather than concern.
CRYSTAL Mineral-Enriched Deodorant in Mountain Fresh: This deodorant, with its decidedly fresh unisex scent, offers all day protection without any of the unhealthy ingredients that are found in conventional deodorants. It has no greasy or waxy residue, it leaves no white marks on the skin or the clothing and it is cruelty-free and vegan. The ingredients include essential oils to offer superior odor protection, and the scent is fresh and uplifting.
According to CRYSTAL,
Freshly Minted (inspired by the scent of freshly minted money) and Mountain Fresh (inspired by the lush Colorado mountains). The new natural deodorant is (obviously) enriched with minerals, and provides effective odor protection with a light (unisex) aroma, and no harsh chemicals. It's powerful, but gentle and glides on smooth. Bonus -- it also conditions and moisturizes skin while delivering the long-lasting 24-hour protection you can trust. It’s also vegan and cruelty-free!
CRYSTAL Mineral-Enriched Deodorant Invisible Solid - Freshly Minted has a fresh and clean scent that offers a touch of mint commingled with other clean natural notes– making it less pungent. It offers excellent odor protection, leaves behind no greasy or waxy film, and it leaves no white marks on the skin or the clothing.

- No waxy residue, no staining, no white marks

The aroma of Schmidt's Naturals Deodorant in Rose + Vanilla ($4.69 for 2.65 oz and $8.99 for 3.25 oz. from Schmidt's Naturals Official Amazon Store and Target): is a warm and creamy rose that smells good enough to wear as a perfume. It is sweet, but not too sweet, and it isn't imposing. It is filled with healthy plant and mineral-based ingredients, and it's vegan and cruelty-free.
I have sensitive underarm skin, and have often found many chemical-laden and natural deodorants alike irritate my skin and can cause redness, but this does not. It applies with ease, doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy, and doesn't stain my clothing. It is not an antiperspirant, and therefore it will not prevent you from sweating, but it does quell unwelcome odors. I apply it in the morning, and it lasts all day long without incident, but your experience may vary given the difference between my body chemistry and yours. For me this was a great purchase, and I am very happy with the results.
According to Schmidt's Naturals,
Schmidt's Naturals Rose + Vanilla Deodorant smells luxurious, elegant, and inviting. Heavenly bouquet of rose with hints of sweet, powdery vanilla. Made with natural plant and mineral-derived ingredients, Schmidt's award-winning formulas help neutralize odor and absorb wetness. Free of aluminum, parabens, phthalates, and artificial fragrance. Certified Vegan and Cruelty-Free.

Vermont Soap Lemongrass Zen Organic Deodorant ($12.00 for 3.25 oz. from Vermont Soap): I always had a fear of using so many chemical compounds in such a sensitive area, and notwithstanding a few occasions in my adult life, I have exclusively used healthier deodorants. Not all are created equal, and some seem to promote, rather than eradicate odor, but Vermont Soap Lemongrass Zen Deodorant is both effective and gentle on sensitive skin. If you love the scent of Lemongrass, then you will be enchanted by this deodorant. I find that it gives me fantastic odor control without irritating my sensitive underarm skin.
According to Vermont Soap,
Lemongrass Zen Organic Deodorant is safe, nontoxic and made from 100% organic ingredients for people with sensitive skin and for reactive bodies of all skin types.
Lemongrass Zen Organic Deodorant Stick is made from 100% organic coconut oil, cornstarch, essential oils and beeswax. Never any propylene glycol, triclosan or alcohol; this is product for people who care about their health and the health of our world.
Ingredients: Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Cornstarch, Organic Lemongrass Essential Oil Blend, Organic Rosemary Extract.
Overall Assessment: If you have been reluctant to try healthy deodorants for fear of learning that they aren't effective, then this time of social distancing is the perfect time to test them out. These natural deodorants have proven to be very effective for me personally, and I haven enough confidence in their efficacy that I don't own any mainstream chemical-laden deodorants.
