One of the most important (if not *the* most important) clean beauty swap is switching from antiperspirant to natural deodorant. Antiperspirants use aluminum to block pores and prevent you from sweating, which is actually a necessary evil to release toxins from the body. But, the ultimate question: Which natural deodorant actually works when sweat and odor are your main concerns? We found three, and they’re all on Amazon.

Editors’ Pick: Primal Pit Paste Natural Deodorant Stick

The Facts:

  • Baking soda neutralizes odor-causing bacteria without aluminum
  • Organic arrowroot powder keeps you dry
  • A base of organic coconut oil and shea butter soothe skin

If you’ve dipped your toe into the natural deodorant world, you know there are some interesting methods—including sticking your fingers into a jar and rubbing paste onto your underarms by hand. But after some trial and error, our food and wellness director found a non-toxic stick deodorant she swears by. “I’ve already been a natural deodorant fan for about five years, but I'm not a huge fan of dipping my hands into the deodorant paste and rubbing it in myself. This handy stick solves that problem, and I liked its scent better than most of the natural deodorants I've tried. It kept me dry and smelling lovely all day, and I never had to do a second application, even after running or going to the gym.”

Best Value: Schmidt's Natural Deodorant

The Facts:

  • Non-greasy, non-sticky formula is easily absorbed
  • Plant-based powders help absorb wetness without the use of aluminum
  • Made in North America

Going all-natural doesn’t have to empty your wallet. Case in point: This reasonably priced, buzzed-about deodorant. It goes on smooth, just like your old antiperspirants used to, but lacks aluminum and other harmful chemicals often found in those drugstore sticks. In their place are plant-based powders, which help to absorb wetness and kill odor-causing bacteria before any, um, smelly situations arise. With six different scent options (including an unscented formula), there’s something for everyone.

Splurge-worthy: Agent Nateur Holi (rose) No. 4 Natural Deodorant

The Facts:

  • Gentle enough for the most sensitive skin
  • Made of the purest non-GMO and non-toxic ingredients
  • Antimicrobial raw, organic honey kills bacteria

Who says applying deodorant can’t be a spa-like experience? With scents of sandalwood and rose, this stick smells better than most antiperspirants and rivals their performance—sans toxins. Its natural ingredients (though potent) are gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin and shouldn’t cause any irritation. Plus, the consistency is smooth and semi-soft, so you don’t have to tug at your underarm while applying.
