30 Bananas a Day!

I have been using an "natural/organic" deodorant (#1 listed below) for several years now. The one I have been using is not as powerful as the conventional deodorant I used to use, but works very well for me as long as I eat clean (80+ HCRV / 20- HCCV).

It seemed like a good idea to me to stop using conventional deodorants because it is known that conventional underarm deodorants and antiperspirants generally contain harsh chemicals that are partially absorbed by the skin, which can be detrimental to health. 

I was at the health food store today. I went there to get some more deodorant. Before I purchased anything, I stopped to look at the ingredients listed on two of the mens deodorants they offered that are both marketed as being natural/organic deodorants. About half of the ingredients listed on both products I know of and consider them to be natural and harmless, the other half are unknown to me. I am interested to know what the consensus is here on 30bad on both products. Can they indeed be considered as toxic free deodorants or are their claims bogus?

Also if any one has a better alternative to these production please share. Not wearing deodorant is not an option for me as I work in a corporate environment and find it important not to smell.

Aubrey is a good company to stick with, I would try their deodorants.

Thanks for sharing!

Going to experiment with this, thanks for sharing!

whenever i cant get 100% raw, i just rub on lemon as deodorant. works all day long for me:]

Going to experiment with this too, do you know if citrus kills bacteria, or does it just mask odor? I know that alcohol and baking soda are known to kill bacteria and thus address the root cause of the formation of body odor.

plain old baking soda or nothing at all! sometimes i'll put some stinky stuff on but its rare!. And yeah when i sweat i smell and so does the guy wearing deoderant who works hard and sweats so i figure whats the point!.

Thanks for the tip!

I use just the simple alcohol-based hand sanitizers.  It doesn't keep you from sweating but kills the germs that cause the smellies... the other option is a quick shower or two a day depending on your activity level and humidity.  They are just rubbing alcohol combined with a gel base and seem innocuous enough.  You could add some essential oils to them if you're so inclined  :) 

I am going to also experiment with and alcohol + baking soda + essential oil mixture.

Great tips, thanks!

I made the coconut, shea, baking soda and essential oil deo, but honestly, if I drink plenty of water and eat tons of fruit, I don't stink.  I do sweat a ton.  If I were to make it again (I still have lots) I would just use lavendar (my favorite, you can pick your favorite and dispense with the others) and a little water with baking soda...it's really all you need.  I know that we smell ourselves much more than other people do, so ask someone if you stink - when you think you do - and go by that.  I just take a quick shower at the end of the day (most days :)) and don't use deo anymore and I still eat cooked.  I only stink if I wear something that was stinky.  So...sorry so wordy...HYDRATE!  Best wishes.

I use a mixture of organic extra virgin coconut oil and baking soda and that works just fine for me. Try to get aluminium free baking soda if you can find it. I keep a small jar of it in my bathroom and it lasts a long time.
