Charcoal + Tea Tree

Sensitive Skin Formula (baking soda free)

$ 12.49

NEW! Charcoal has made a name for itself in natural skin care, and for good reason! This coconut-derived activated charcoal is especially good at drawing out dirt, oils, and toxins--all while creating an inhospitable environment for odor-causing bacteria. This, paired with the power of tea tree essential oil and magnesium, makes this formula our most powerful baking soda free stick yet.


Sensitive Skin Formula: Arrowroot Powder, Magnesium Hydroxide, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (Fractionated Coconut Oil), Hydrogenated Avocado Oil (Avocado Butter), Cera Bellina Wax, Coconut Oil, Tea Tree Essential Oil, Activated Charcoal, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Inulin*.

* Plant-based prebiotic. 

Our Three Level Approach
Your sweat is naturally odorless. But odor causing bacteria living on your skin thrives on that sweat and metabolizes it, leading to smelly underarms.

By studying the biological causes of body odor, we've developed a formulation that attacks the root cause on three levels:
  • A blend of vegetable based powders and oils help to absorb & wick away wetness, separating it from your skin with a moisturizing barrier
  • Mineral ingredients like magnesium neutralize the environment where the odor-causing bacteria thrives
  • Prebiotics (plant-based food for good bacteria) contribute to the biodiversity & strength of your skin microbiome
The result is all-day odor control with just one application.

But skin care isn't one-size-fits-all. Each of our bodies is the product of subtle differences in our genetic makeup, environment, diet, state of health, level of activity, and stage of life.

For some people, the baking soda in our standard formula is the perfect option for controlling odor. For others with baking soda sensitivities (and generally sensitive skin), our sensitive skin formula deodorant is just as effective but gentler on the skin. And for people who prefer a super smooth feel, we have a seasonal deodorant cream, available in the cooler months.

    My favorite one yet! (Charcoal)

    I’ve been using different scents for over a year now and this one is by far my fav! It lasts a long time and doesn’t leave much residue. And if possible I’ve noticed my pit area to be lighter!

    Switched when the regular caused a reaction

    The regular Smartypits (unscented) made my skin break out, even though it worked great as a deodorant. I tried this as an alternative, and it's been good. No breakouts, and the deodorant works just as well.

    Favorite Brand

    After using a different natural brand, I switched to SP and LOVE it! I don’t feel the need to reapply, except after a workout. I’m never smelly (I’m a personally trainer and can get sweaty as the day goes on). Great scents too!

    Best Ever!

    Keeps me dry and smell free all day long!

    Works great! Smells lovely!

    This is my first full-size deodorant from SmartyPits! I'm a blunt and transparent person, so I'm gonna give it to you straight!

    I love the branding and packaging. Aren't we all suckers for a good label? Isn't that how you are first drawn to a bottle of wine? LOL Anyway, I like grey and I like the clear and easy-t0-read branding.

    The deodorant was shipped to me in a bubble mailer, which, once you open it, can be reused yet again to mail something of yours somewhere! Reusable packaging is a great way to give more life to an otherwise single-use waste of materials! Yay SmartyPits!

    To be fair, I am not an overly smelly person, nor an overly sweaty person. I also bought this in winter, so perhaps I will need to review it again in the hot Texas summer! It seems to handle what I've got going on so far, so that's nice.

    Previously, I was using a Dove deodorant. I will say that this deodorant seems more "solid" than more widely known deodorant brands. Meaning, I have to either hold it to my armpit a few seconds to "warm it up," or apply more pressure than I would for the Dove deodorant. I think the quality of the product outweighs the handful of seconds more that it takes to apply, but it's worth noting.

    The smell is lovely. Not too overpowering, and not floral or food scented, which is nice. (I'm not one to want my armpits to smell like a field of flowers or a fruit salad.)
    I love essential oils, so tea tree is a comforting and familiar scent.

    I see no reason to ever buy another brand of deodorant again!
