The 15+ Most Amazing Natural Deodorants Experts Recommend! (2020)
When they first came into the world, even the best natural deodorants reeked of issues. They weren’t particularly easy to use, nor were they able to keep you smelling fresh until the end of the day. But through years of research, cosmetic chemists kept chugging along until they found formulas that are just as good as the other deodorants you know and love.
A quick refresher on the difference between antiperspirants and natural deodorants: Antiperspirants use aluminum to “plug” your sweat glands, which prevents your body from producing sweat. Natural deodorants (also known as aluminum-free deodorants) on the other hand contain no aluminum, so you still sweat, but the formula works to mask or neutralize the smell of body odor. That’s because sweat itself doesn’t actually smell. “It’s the bacteria that grows on sweat that causes odor,” says Katie Sturino, founder of Megababe.
Still, nobody wants to take a chance on switching to natural deodorant only to have it melt down at the most inopportune time—which is why we called on Glamour staffers to sweat the problem for you. We tested dozens of options to narrow down which aluminum-free deodorants hold up to their claims. Here are the best natural deodorants for women to shop right now.
