5 Natural Deodorants for Your Green Beauty Routine

Here at The Essential Life, we've been sharing a ton of information about greening-up your life. You might be growing tired of us going on & on about it, but we just can't stop ourselves. We truly believe that, by making simple & sustainable changes in the way that we live, we can reduce our impact on the environment & improve our health.

In an effort to help The Essential Life community go green, we embarked on a journey with our recent blog series "Go Green With Your Beauty Routine". Over the last few months, The Essential Life gathered a team of beauty experts (by "beauty experts", we mean we gathered a group of women of different ages, with different skin types & different concerns with regard to their beauty routine) & we set out to find the best natural & organic beauty products for each stage of a typical beauty routine.

We have been sharing the results of our team's tireless efforts & have compiled our top-five lists of all-natural & organic cleansersmoisturisersfacial serumsacne treatmentsface masksfoundationslip colours & mascaras. To round out our list, we're sharing our picks for the best natural & organic deodorants to add to your green beauty regimen.

Our top-Five Picks for Natural Deodorants for Your Green Beauty Routine

Soapwalla Original Deodorant Cream

Why We Love It: When The Essential Life's team of beauty experts decided we'd try out a few different all-natural deodorants, this deodorant cream was at the top of our list. We'd heard a lot about Soapwalla's Deodorant Cream before, but none of us had ever tried it. After using this deodorant for a few weeks, we all unanimously agreed it is worthy of the buzz that surrounds it.

What's so great about this deodorant is that it uses a blend of Lavender, Peppermint & Tea Tree Essential Oils to inhibit the production & growth of bacteria & stop odours. In addition, this deodorant's blend of vegetable powders & clays creates a frosting-like consistency that is easy to apply & quickly absorbed which offers your long-lasting protection.

Price: $14 USD


Agent Nateur No.3 Deodorant

Why We Love It: As our readers may, or may not know, here at The Essential Life, we are HUGE fans of coconut oil. Coconut oil is a natural beauty wunderkind & we can't speak highly of it enough. With our love of coconut oil in mind, we were pretty sure we were going to love this deodorant right for the words "coconut oil base"...& we did.

This natural deodorant is made with a base of nourishing coconut oil & combines the powers of honey with lavender & Eucalyptus Essential Oils. The result is all-day odour-protection that's ideal for anyone with sensitive skin.

Price: $21 USD


Soapwalla Citrus Deodorant Cream

Why We Love It: How much do we love Soapwalla's Deodorant Creams? Enough to add it to our list of the best natural deodorants twice! To be fair, Soapwalla's Citrus Deodorant Cream is slightly different than their Original Deodorant Cream.

This natural deodorant packs a powerful odour-killing punch. Using the antibacterial power of citrus Essential Oils such as Lemon Grass, Bergamot & Litsea Cubiba, this deodorant will offer you all-day odour protection with a refreshing citrus scent.

Price $14 USD


Kaia Naturals The Takesumi Detox - Cold Pressed Rose

Why We Love It: This all-natural deodorant is loaded with the power of activated bamboo charcoal. Why is activated charcoal so incredible? Head over to our article all about activated charcoal to find out. Using bamboo to create the activated charcoal is an idea we LOVED. In case you hadn't heard yet, bamboo is going to save our planet.

The activated charcoal in this deodorant draws toxins & bacteria away from our skin to prevent odours & moisture for developing. The soothing & calming effect of rose keeps the delicate skin of your underarms nourished & free of irritation.

Price: $21 USD


Osmia Organics Deodorant Cream

Why We Love It: This deodorant cream is akin to treating your underarms to a day at the spa. Made with a blend of shea butter, jojoba oil & tamanu oil, Osmia Organics' natural deodorant is loaded with some serious nourishment which means you'll never have to worry about dryness or irritation again.

Despite this deodorant's gentleness, it also has intense odour-stopping powers. We found that this cream deodorant offered us all-day protection without needing to be reapplied throughout the day. In addition, we loved this deodorant's packaging because it could easily fit into a purse or gym bag for a little added odour protection after a hardcore gym session or Yoga class.

Price: $12 USD

Who is Britten? She's a reticent little beast born in the wilds of Northern Alberta to a foul-mouthed, French-Canadian father & an angry, stiff-upper-lipped mother. Britten is, almost always, wild-haired & poorly dressed. She recently left the beautiful & untamed chill of Canada for the blistering & somewhat oppressive heat of Australia. Her list of pastimes is short & includes reading, writing, petting cats, overeating & alphabetizing things. She's a fan of Windex on Facebook because who doesn't want a streak free shine? She dreams of one day writing a super-awesome novel that affords her & her partner a comfortable lifestyle, a large property, a few horses & the means with which to foster children in need...or just becoming a red panda.

When Britten isn't writing, reading, or organizing things in her home, she can be found cuddling with her boyfriend, arguing about why Rajon Rondo is the best point guard in the history of ever, browsing Gumtree for a future cat or kitten, or contemplating days gone by, the passage of time & how ridiculous it is that humans have yet to evolve enough to grow a third set of teeth.
