6 Zero Waste Deodorants That Work: Smell Your Best!

If deodorant didn’t exist, we would be standing 6 ft apart regardless of a global pandemic. Let’s face it, our pits stink! Some more than others…and that’s OK because not only will you be smelling like a million bucks, but your skin will benefit from these 6 zero waste deodorants with non-toxic ingredients.

I’ve tried my fair share of all-natural, eco-friendly deodorants but unfortunately, not all of them last or work well when applying.

Here are 6 zero waste deodorant brands that work at reducing the stench of your armpit and last longer than expected. They include solid sticks, creams, and bars so you have options to choose from! I’ve found that not many spray bottles cater to zero waste lifestyles. You can, however, find luck in most bamboo products.

Ethique eco-friendly deodorant

Ethique carries one of the most popular deodorant bars on Amazon, a solid deodorant bar for all genders. It’s unscented, vegan, and has the option for a 1, 2, or 3 pack! My favorite part is that the container is made with paper and cardboard, just like Hey!’s deodorant.

Eric from the reviews says he does farm work all day and then lifts weights afterward and there is no odor coming from his pits still. That, plus the eco-friendly aspect, has to be the largest indicator that this deodorant is worth it! Click below!

Personally, I love Native products. Their body wash variations are truly wonderful, and their deodorants are no different! Eucalyptus and mint is my favorite but the coconut and vanilla is a close second. With many great scents and all-natural ingredients, these zero waste deodorants from Native are smart options for the whole family (Christmas gifts perhaps?).

Fat And The Moon

A high-quality product, this brand understands eco-friendly living. Aluminum/paraben/phthalate/sulfate-free (*takes a deep breath before continuing*), organic content, and handmade, Fat And The Moon uses baking soda to keep pits odor-free and dry. Although using a cream feels odd at first, it actually lasts and works so well! I highly recommend trying this one out!

Bears Beauty

Bears Beauty is one of the strongest natural deodorants on the market right now. It claims they last up to 72 hours and the reviews agree! This is on my list to try so I’m happy to share this brand with all of you. I wanted to point out that the maker gives you the option of a plastic tube or eco tube and this is because she originally had a ton of plastic tubes but is switching to eco. So while it’s not 100% zero waste yet, make note of the actionable step she’s taking to better our environmental impact. If we notice companies making the switch, that is what we should be supporting.

Plantish Future

Vegan and plastic-free, this zero waste deodorant is tiny but mighty! Although people like having many options, sometimes less is more (and way easier). I appreciate how they only have two: unscented or rose and citrus because you can’t go wrong with either!

Speaking of decisions, we decide the quality of our lives. We also decide what can happen to future generations. Do we want them to suffer from the changing climate? From the excess plastic pollution? Of course not! Humans have the power to create lasting change so let’s start right now! Not tomorrow or next year. Today. Consuming eco products like zero waste deodorants (something we use every day) is one of the smartest decisions we can teach and take.
