About Natural Deodorant
What's the deal with natural deodorant?
All aluminum in your antiperspirant is designed to work against your body and clog up your sweat glands. How is aluminum-free deodorant different?Learn More
All of our fragrances are phthalate-free, paraben-free, propylene glycol-free, and cruelty-free. Most store-bought deodorants use phthalates in their fragrances, which are commonly used in commercial plastics and solvents. Want to know more about why we opt for something better?More FAQs

Does natural deodorant get the job done?
It still keeps you fresh and dry!

Plus, our prebiotics are designed to nourish the good bacteria in your underarms and help your pits stay fresh. Read on to discover how these two miracle ingredients keep you fresh.Learn More
It shouldn’t stain your clothes!

What's different about using natural deodorant?
There may be a transition, and we can help!
Transitioning from traditional antiperspirant to aluminum-free deodorant is a sizable shift for your body’s chemistry. To make the switch from clogged-up pits to fresh pits as smooth as possible, some undergo a detox period during which the body adjusts to no longer having aluminum clogging up the sweat glands. Every body chemistry is different, but some people find that using our Pit Rebalancing Treatment during this time can help make that transition a little smoother.New to Natural?
You apply just a little bit!
When using natural deodorants, you typically need to apply a good bit less than a store-bought antiperspirant—especially if you’ve become accustomed to gel antiperspirants. Just a few swipes should be enough. Looking for more tips in using your first natural deodorant?Learn More
There are formulas that are safe for kids!
Natural deodorant is very safe for children, but it’s important to make sure you choose one that is appropriate for their young skin. When introducing to your child or teen, we recommend using a formula without baking soda, such as our sensitive-skin formula or our teen collection. Need help approaching your teen about body odor?

Are there any downsides to making the switch?

For people with sensitive skin, baking soda can be irritating, sometimes even producing rashes. Do you have sensitive skin, or have you had issues in the past?Learn More

This is not an antiperspirant.
Antiperspirants contain aluminum, which prohibits sweat (and other toxins) from leaving your body. So by design, SmartyPits is a deodorant—with the added benefit of natural sweat-wicking and sweat-absorbing ingredients. Remember, sweat isn’t bad—it’s the odor-causing bacteria we’re after!Learn More
