7 Gender-neutral natural deodorants to keep your underarms fresh all-day long
Smell you later
Gone are the days of Lynx and Dove; natural deodorants are in. We're sick of unecessary gendering, so here is our roundup of the best natural deodorants we found for girls, guys and anyone in between!
Veri Natural Tea Tree Lemon Deodorant Cream
Support local and indulge in this Malaysian-owned brand's deodorant creams—scoop a little out, apply on your pits and you're good to go! Each tub lasts for about two to three months and it comes in other scents for you to try such as lavender and jasmine. Find it on their website for RM49.90.
Salt of the Earth Natural Crystal Roll-on Deodorant
The vegan formulation contains nothing but pure mineral salt (potassium alum). It's unscented, but leaves your pits odourless by depositing a layer of salt that sits on the surface of your skin, inhibiting the growth of odour-causing bacteria. All you have to do is wet the crystal, rub generously on your pits and rinse the crystal to clean. Find it on Naturisimo for RM31.
Aesop Herbal Deodorant
Aesop (as expected) is in the natural deodorant game, with two types of deodorants available—roll-on and spray. With odour-absorbing zinc ricinoleate paired with wasabi extract and a distinct blend of essential oils, this deodorant works like a dream. Available at all Aesop stores.
Crystal Mineral Deodorant Stone
Working in the same way as salt-based deodorants albeit using a different variation of salt, this ammonium alum crystal lays on the surface of the skin to prevent odour-causing bacteria from growing. And—it lasts all-day long so you don't have to worry about working up at sweat. Find it online for RM31.
Neal's Yard Remedies Peppermint and Lime Roll-on Deodorant
Infused with invigorating peppermint and fresh lime, the deodorant guards against odour. Further, the bamboo powder infused in the formula absorbs moisture and combats wetness, leaving you with some fresh pits! Plus, it lasts for up to 24 hours. Find it online for RM81.
Schmidt's Charcoal and Magnesium Natural Deodorant
Want your underarms to smell naturally good? This aluminium- and paraben-free deodorant has activated charcoal and magnesium to control smells, plus a combination of shea butter, coconut and jojoba oils for a hydrating finish. Get this balm formulation online for RM37.65.
Green People Quinoa and Prebiotics Deodorant
If it's good enough to eat, it's good enough for your pits. This non-irritating deodorant will leave you feeling (and smelling) your best all day long, thanks to sweet orange and ginger essential oils. Prebiotics also help to prevent irritation (especially for those with ingrown hairs) and prevent odour-causing bacteria to thrive. And to top it all off, it doesn't leave any marks or stains! Find it online for RM55.50.
