On the hunt for a new deodorant brand? Maybe it's time to ditch the deodorants with chemicals and switch to a natural deodorant brand. This list of the best natural deodorant brands made in USA includes deodorant brands that you can trust. We found non toxic deodorants for men, women, tweens and teens in all types of scents (and even unscented). Deodorant sticks, sprays, creams, and roll ons- we have your pits covered no matter what you prefer!
My previous antiperspirant had aluminum zirconium tetracholorohydrox and talc. These ingredients are linked to organ toxicity and are a possible ovarian cancer carcinogen, respectively. I decided to try deodorants with non-toxic, natural ingredients and I'll never go back to commercial brands again.
Natural deodorant brands on our list include ingredients like baking soda, charcoal, arrowroot powder or clay to block odor and absorb sweat. Some of the natural deodorant brands include probiotics to prevent the growth of odor causing bacteria. There are so many options.
Deodorant vs. Antiperspirant
What is the difference between a deodorant and an antiperspirant? Deodorants are formulated to prevent arm pit odor, but not to eliminate sweat. Antiperspirants contain ingredients that block sweat pores to eliminate sweat. Aluminum is the main sweat blocking ingredient.
There are no natural antiperspirants because aluminum is not a natural ingredient. Some natural deodorants do contain ingredients like baking soda, arrowroot, clay, or charcoal that can absorb sweat.
I sweat, like, a lot, so I was curious to know how well these options would work. Let me tell you that they reallywork in terms of keeping me smelling good, and minimizing sweat during daily activity. Since deodorants aren't made to stop you from sweating, you'll still sweat, but not too much. For me, the change in how much I sweat wasn't any different than what I saw while I was using an antiperspirant. In fact, I think these natural deodorants work better than the Secret and Degree that I was used to using, so the switch to one of the best natural deodorant options was an obvious one.
All of these deodorant options work better than any antiperspirants or other deodorants I have tried before. Know that you will sweat some, but you won't smell! Furthermore, I haven't found any of these options to stain my clothes, even when I'm wearing black.

Jill's Review: Chagrin Valley Soap Coconut Cream Mint Mist Deodorant goes on the most smoothly of any I tried and it is great for sensitive skin too. Some natural deodorants irritate my skin, but this one never has. It absorbs quickly and lasts all day. Silky organic cornstarch soothes skin and absorbs perspiration, while baking soda raises the pH making the underarm less friendly to odor causing bacteria. The coconut mint scent is delicate, yet refreshing too.

Jill's Review: My favorite scent is From Dusk Til Dawn. It seems like freshly cut lemongrass with a hint of mildly spicy Italian Bergamot citrus fruit. It's no surprise that it's one of the brand's unisex bestsellers. It's also vegan and cruelty-free.
PiperWai is a great option for those who sweat a lot. The main ingredient, activated charcoal, can absorb 1000x its weight in moisture, keeping you dry while other ingredients create a pH balanced environment that keeps you smelling fresh.

Bubble & Bee is truly amazing! The Pit Primer product actually keeps odor away. I’m a heavy underarm sweater and have tried almost all deodorant brands including the ones that swear they work like Lume. The B&B Pit Primer followed by some Pit Putty, is perfect! ❤️ thanks for including this lovely company in your list!
My husband and I started using Wellow last year. We both find it extremely effective, and it is housed in cardboard containers which are compostable.: bewellow.com
Great source of information! I am allergic to most deodorants so this is very helpful 🙂
I think I will start with Korina:)
I love Bubble & Bee Organic’s Pit Putty in Orange Vanilla.
Zak deodorant seems to no longer be an active business. I ordered from them over a month ago and have gotten no reply to numerous emails. Just a heads up for anyone thinking of ordering from them. Hopefully no one else loses money through them.
I like a few of the deodorants on here, but the best one yet isn’t even mentioned in this list. American Providence is the first deodorant that has actually helped me after 15 years of being in menopause and trying everything, even men’s deodorants. You don’t have to use very much of the American Providence stuff, and it works sooooo well. If it can work for me, it can work for anyone. It’s also made in the U.S. I believe it’s made in Wisconsin. Saw it talked about on the Today Show, then read an article about it. One of the fastest growing companies in America because of the effectiveness of their products. The company was started by a science teacher or something.
I was the lead production supervisor for Schmidts, here in Portland. That was until Jaime Schmidt sold to UNILEVER, closed down our warehouse, putting 50 out of work and moving the business to Canada. This was back in 2017.
I’ve used Native deodorant for several years now. As far as I know it is still made in USA and effective with the stink. I like it a lot, but I might try something different to help with the sweating.
Good to know! Natural deodorant won’t help with sweating. You’d have to find an anti-perspirant for that and those generally have chemicals in them.
Do any of the natural products use recyclable/compostable packaging instead of plastic?
Hi Mary, yes the Chagrin Valley Coconut Cream Deodorant is plastic-free and Organic Essence https://www.organic-essence.com/product/deodorant-natural/ uses compostable packaging. I love their products!!!
Also Try “Pit Perfect” from Sixth Street Soapery. Current scents include:
Sweet Orange Tea Tree
Lavender Patchouli Tea Tree
Lavender Clary Sage
All are a natural aluminum-free paste. Made with Organic Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Arrowroot Powder, Cocoa Butter, Beeswax, Baking Soda, Essential Oils.
I think the only one I’ve ever heard of is Crystal. I like that there’s so many different options and that they’re are safe/natural deodorants.
Thanks for all of this useful info I would of never switched deodorants before reading this but now that I know what’s in it i’m seriously thinking about it
Hi Heather. Hope you see my comment above about American Providence deodorant.I do like a few of the deodorants on here but none that work as well as AP. Don’t use that much. Don’t need it. Thought it seemed awfully pricey till I learned that and cut way back, and it still works. One will last a long time. I gave my husband, brother in law and brother a package of it for Christmas. Good luck!
Vegan. Aluminium-free. Petro-chemical free. True colloidal nanosilver. 100% pure essential oils. Provides all-day protection against odor (YES).
Refillable applicators. BPA-free bottles (#5 & #4 plastics).
I have to admit this is one of those little, every day purchases that you sometimes don’t think about being made in the USA or otherwise. It’s nice to know that some are!
I have tried a few and still want to try some more to see which works best for me. Thank for the information!
This is great. I have had a few of them.
This is a wonderful list! I’ve quit wearing the chemical laden deodorants and anti perspirants and am always on the lookout for a good organic product. Love that you have so many here for me in one collection!
Ehomi on Instagram. I’d like to try the crystal brand since it seems like it has the most protection and I sweat a lot. They all sound awesome.
Sage is actually used by the San tribe in Africa as a traditional form of deodorant! So it’s cool one of the brands incorporates that in their product.
I have heard of some of these brands. I always try to buy natural deodorants and it is good to find some other brands to try.
I’d love the Nourish Organic Stick deodorant or the Primally Pure deodorant! Instagram name is annestull … Thank you for the opportunity!
Greenbubbleshome, an Etsy shop, creates very effective deodorants in many scents as well as unscented. I wasted a LOT of money trying natural deodorants before I finally found this shop a few years ago. This deodorant works so well, and I was even able to find a talc-free baby powder scent which is my favorite! My husband also likes this deodorant, and it works far better for both of us than conventional, toxic deodorant.
And I forgot to mention this deodorant is made in Nebraska by a woman, Jen, who not only provides incredible customer service but also creates dozens of other truly safe products such as her incredible laundry powder.
I’d like to try the primally pure or fig & yarrow! They sound great! I’m gsgisi on Instagram as well 🙂
Fig & yarrow underarm lotion would be my top #want! @bebemonk on Instagram 🙂
Great stuff! I cannot wait to give some of these a try!
It is ironic how careful people are today about being healthy, watching what we eat, etc. But little attention is placed on the fact that chemicals are injested through our personal care items. Thank you for suggesting natural deodorant options that work as well as the big brands.
thank you so much for this! i have used Crystal for several years, and i love it – i’ve tried the spray, roll on, and “rock” forms, and all the different scents, and they are all great. unfortunately, this past year for some reason it stopped working for me. i have no idea why, and i realize there must be some underlying health issue (i have a lot of those!), but in the mean time, i’ve been using a “regular” deodorant. your review makes me feel a lot better about spending the money to try something new.
You’ll surely find a great alternative from this list. I think a lot of it has to do with preference on ingredients (vegan, organic, paleo) and the scent. All of these options work well!
