More and more, people have started making the move to natural deodorant and away from antiperspirants. There are a few reasons for the growing popularity of these sticks. First, people have become hyperconscious of what ingredients they are putting on their body, including parabens, phthalates, and in the case of antiperspirant, aluminum, too. While there's still debate in the beauty space about what exactly aluminum does to the body, and whether we should be that concerned about using it topically, the conversation is enough to give many pause. 

The second reason that some are making the switch is because natural deodorants have gotten so much better. The stick uses a combo of odor-blocking ingredients, natural fragrances, and actives to neutralize the bacteria and enzymes that cause B.O. The result? Products that do the work, keeping you smelling fresh all day long. (Here, we should note that deodorants will not stop you from sweating—like antiperspirants—they simply stop you from smelling.) 

If you're looking to make the switch, here are our favorite picks. These are marketed toward men, but you can use them no matter how you identify. 

Oars and Alps Men's Natural Deodorant

This clean line is known for their clean, natural skin care products formulated and marketed with men in mind. The base of this is cornstarch, which can help absorb sweat and odor, while the notes of cedarwood, lime, and fresh greens come together to create a blend that is equal parts refreshing, cool, and sophisticated.

Bravo Sierra Aluminum-Free & Baking-Soda-Free Scented Deodorant

For those with sensitive skin, you may consider nixing the baking soda. The ingredient is often used in traditional and natural deodorants as it helps absorb odor and sweat. However, many find it irritating, even resulting in an armpit rash. This also has a delightful scent of vetiver and cedarwood.

Schmidt's Water + Wood Deodorant

The cocktail of arrowroot powder, charcoal, magnesium, and essential oils makes this a smart choice that works from several angles. Arrowroot powder helps eliminate dampness and is often more tolerable than other powders. The charcoal and magnesium (both highly absorbent minerals) make this extra-strength. And the essential oils provide a subtle, earthy smell.

Lululemon Anti-Stink Deodorant

This spray option uses a blend of hydrators, like shea, coconut oil, and so on, to help keep your pits healthy and calm—while using tapioca powder and other smart botanicals to help you feel fresh. We also love it for its blend of prebiotics, which help balance the bacteria in the area—managing the strains that cause B.O.

Bevel Aluminum-Free Deodorant

Made with shea butter, coconut oil, essential oils, and botanical powders, here's a clear stick that won't leave streaks or residue on your clothing. But don't worry: The formula is also strong enough to get through coarse armpit hair as well.

AOS Deodorant in Victory

Along with the classic arrowroot powder, this contains matcha powder to help bolster absorbency—and add a few skin care benefits thanks to its anti-inflammatory effects. The scent is a delightful eucalyptus, which is as refreshing as it is ahh-inducing.

Biossance Squalane Bamboo Deodorant

The brand's signature squalane keeps your skin soft, hydrated, and irritation-free, while the bamboo powder helps you stay odor-free. It also contains a unique licorice-root-derived ingredient that helps calm skin and a blend of grapefruit, geranium, and clary sage for scent.

Ethique Eco-Friendly Deodorant Bar

For the eco-conscious among us, this bar nixes the plastic packaging for a more sustainable option. Ethique is the world's first zero-waste beauty brand. The "Rustic" scent is made by blending lime, cedarwood, and eucalyptus.

Magsol Magnesium Deodorant in Lemongrass

Ideal for ultrasensitive skin types, this has only four ingredients: sweet almond oil, beeswax, magnesium oxide (the primary active), and essential oils for scent. The lemongrass is bright and earthy, with a touch of sweetness.

Primally Pure Charcoal Deodorant

Charcoal as a deodorant ingredient has become quite popular. Charcoal molecules are very porous and have an impressive ability to suck in and hold impurities, dirt, and moisture, like from sweat. It also has kaolin clay to add an additional layer of protection and non-nano zinc oxide to help soothe skin.
