Lime & Cedarwood Bicarb Free Natural Deodorant with Charcoal

$19.00 $29.00

Our most popular magnesium, bicarb free, natural deodorant – now with the added power of activated charcoal.

Natural botanical ingredients work to neutralise odour causing bacteria without blocking pores or the use of harmful toxic ingredients.  This allows you to sweat and expel toxins but keeps you smelling fresh.

Our Lime and Cedarwood formula contains nourishing shea and cacao butter, tapioca to absorb wetness and coconut oil for it’s naturally anti-bacterial & anti-fungal properties.  We’ve swapped out bicarb and used magnesium to help keep odour at bay, now with the extra power of charcoal, which aids in detoxification and absorbs odours.

A refreshing, uplifting blend of lemon and lime essential oils with a woody hint of cedarwood help to eliminate bacteria with their antiseptic, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.

    Love this product! Have been using it for a few years now and will continue to. I frequent the gym, go to pilates, out for long hikes etc – only ever use the smallest amount of product and never need to re-apply. 5 stars 🙂

  2. Jezzi Hatch (verified owner)

    Absolutely adore this product. My partner and I both love this and we work up in an outrageously hot climate. I will forever recommend this product.
    Best natural deodorant I’ve tried and it’s definitely great value for the money spent. Lasts for ages!

  3. Andrea (verified owner)

    What a fabulous product! This was initially recommended to me by the sales lady at a store selling many other natural products and she said it was easily the best. She wasn’t wrong! I was very sceptical at first (and it is a little different getting used to applying deodorant with your hands!) but I’ll never go back! Even though it is a light grey colour in the container, it rubs in perfectly clear and never stains your clothes! No more yellow marks! I find that the light fresh fragrance doesn’t clash with my perfume and keeps me fresh all day. It even holds up with no stink during hot Pilates classes! Thank you for a wonderful product, Babs!

  4. Tim (verified owner)

    Hands down the best deodorant I’ve ever used!

  5. Luke (verified owner)

    Tried a few natural deodorants before I found this one that actually works. Worst things is having to warm it up before applying in cold climates!

  6. Matt (verified owner)

    I use the lime and cedarwood deodorant and it works a treat! I’m a repeat customer and wouldn’t keep using it if it didn’t work.” Highly recommended.

  7. Catherine (verified owner)

    I was using the Geranium and Clary sage deodorant for a couple of years and found it quite effective. Then about a year or two ago I saw the Lime and Cedarwood and decided to give it a try as I liked the idea of the perfume combination. For me they are very effective at stopping body odour although I do find on very hot days I still perspire, and this is despite having used Babs deodorants continuously for at least the last four years. However this was sometimes a problem for me with other deodorants, and with them the smelly body odour was also a problem. I really like the products and have recommended them to family members who also use and like them.
    I also really like that it doesn’t leave a mark on my clothing which was a problem with all other deodorants.
    I have tried other natural deodorants but they simply didn’t work.
    Well done and thank you Babs for great products.
    The site is very user friendly too 😊

    Hands down the best deodorant I’ve ever tried! I love the smell and texture of this, and my skin easily gets irritated if I use a deodorant with bicarb, so it’s amazing to know this doesn’t have any of it. People often say they haven’t found a natural deodorant that actually does the job, so I always recommend this one! This is even better at keeping my pits fresh than any of those toxic antiperspirants. Plus, the jar lasts for a long time – mine has already lasted 6 months and I still have 1/3 to go, so it’s well worth the price!

  9. Liz

    My daughter has incredibly sensitive skin and we have tried many different natural deodorants, this is the only one that actually works and doesn’t react with her skin. We have both started using this deodorant and are absolute converts, we love it and highly recommend it!!

  10. Manu (verified owner)

    Thank you Andrea for making such an amazing products that are environmental friendly from packaging to the products itself.
    I have completely stopped buying deodrants and perfume from the markets since I have been introduced to your deodorant. I am in love with Lime and Cedarwood deodorant.

  11. Suzana (verified owner)

    Up to my 3rd jar of this amazing deodorant.
    Post mastectomy I didn’t want to use a chemical deodorant so I gave Babs a go and I’ve been using Lime & Cedarwood ever since.
    I did fall off the wagon once and used a supermarket deodorant and found I got this weird lingering armpit smell which I never get with Babs.
    I also use a little beauty spatula to apply the product, which works well and I don’t get any deodorant under my nails.
    One of my favourite finds and now part of my essential routine.

  12. Carli (verified owner)

    The best natural deodorants ever!!
    My husband was a little reluctant in trying it initially, but he has converted!!
    I’ve even heard him recommending it to his mates.

  13. Felicity (verified owner)

    WOW. Just, wow. This deodorant is hands down the best natural one I’ve tried. I love the lime and cedarwood scent and it lasts all day with no-reapplication required and I don’t get smelly even on a hot summer day! It makes me so happy that there is no aluminum or other nasties as our armpits are so sensitive and hyper-absorbant parts of our body. It rubs in like a breeze and my next purchase will be the bigger size I think. So recommend you won’t regret it.

  14. Julia (verified owner)

    Absolutely love the lime and cedar wood deodorant! I’ve tried a couple of other natural deodorants and none of them come close to Babs. This is probably the only deodorant I’ve ever used that actually lasts all day (natural or otherwise) and it doesn’t leave the sticky wet feeling that you get from a roll on. The consistency can be a little tricky in the cooler months but it just takes a little more time to warm the paste in your fingers to make it easier to apply. The scent is lovely and not too strong and my sensitive skin hasn’t had any trouble with it! I’ve tried both the regular and vegan (beeswax free) versions and they’re both incredible. Huge fan!!

  15. Beth Warren (verified owner)

    Since making the switch to natural deodorant I have tried a few other brands before finding babs. Babs is the first deodorant I have found that works well for me. It smells amazing is gentle on my skin and I am not smelly for the whole day. I have been telling everyone about babs as it is the BEST!

  16. Amy (verified owner)

    I’ve been using various Babs deodorants for the past three years and they’ve all been fantastic. This is now my everyday deodorant because I’ve found that, for me, it works fantastically. I haven’t used anything other than Babs in that time and gone are the stains on my white t-shirts! I’d never go back to those chemical deodorants. Thanks, Babs!

  17. Heather (verified owner)

    Great product and excellent service! We have been using this product for a year and a half now and it never fails even in the sweatiest of workouts. Highly recommend!.

  18. Zoe (verified owner)

    I agree with the rest of the reviews on here. This is my workhorse Babs deodorant. I use the sage one on weekends and when going out at night — it doubles as my perfume. But for everyday stress sweat and running around you can’t go past charcoal. Just like all of the Babs products this feels so luxurious to apply. I’ve always hated the cold sticky feel you get with roll ons but this is like self care for your pits. Like velvet going on and lasts all day and for my morning workout the next. While sage will always have my heart scent wise, this really can’t be beat for effectiveness (the scent is also really nice and fresh and now I use my Babs perfume as an actual perfume for everyday so problem solved).

  19. Sarah (verified owner)

    This is one of the best natural deodorants on the market I believe- I’ve tried a few! I actually have a selection of three Babs deodorants, and alternate daily depending on my mood and what fragrance I feel like. But I ensure I use the charcoal one on days when I’m planning to do some serious sweating during a work out. No bad odours! Ever! I’m converting my entire family!

  20. Charlie (verified owner)

    You have a great product, it is also wonderful for young teenage boys. I struggled to find a natural deodorant for our young teenage son (if you ever have had boys you will know what I mean 😷) and your lime & cedarwood deodorant has certainly neutralised him.


    My absolute favourite so far in the deodorant range. With Breast cancer in the family I take nothing to chance and therefore only user aluminium free deodorants. None compare to Babs (and Ive tried many).

  22. Hayley (verified owner)

    This is the best natural deodorant! Smells great and more importantly does the job.

  23. Lillian Kinder (verified owner)

    I bought this deodorant for my partner and we both really like the smell. It works great for him on the weekends, but doesn’t hold up while he works outdoors. For a regular day its great, but unfortunately not for a tradie lifestyle.

      Thanks for taking the time to review Lillian. Here’s a link to one of our blogs – Looking after your pits that has a few helpful tips which may help the effectiveness of the natural deodorant. It’s also good to keep in mind that there can sometimes be a transition period (1-2 weeks) when switching from an antiperspirant.

      Hope the blog is helpful.

  24. Bernard (verified owner)

    All Babs deodorants are fantastic! Very effective to control odour and combined with refreshing naturally derived fragrance. I love all Babs products, knowing they are lovingly made with high quality natural ingredients.

  25. Matt Turnbull (verified owner)

    I tried a handful of natural deodorants, and this is the one I keep coming back to. Please, never stop making this! 10 out of 10

  26. Mary-Anne Ryan (verified owner)

    Babs deodorant is a beautiful product. I feel special when putting it on. I also use a Babs spray perfume, and the two pair together pefectly. My clothes smell fresh! It is not greasy, or diffcult to use. On a hot day, the product is a little softer. I usually have an extra jar in my drawer, so hat i wont run out.

  27. Rachael C (verified owner)

    I’ve been purchasing this for my husband (I just restocked it again today!) and he’s had nothing but good things to say about it. And I can confirm that when I give him a cuddle at the end of the day, he still smells fresh!

  28. Stacey

    Got this deodorant as a sample with my Geranium and Clary Sage Deodorant paste order and I appreciate that I was able to try it. The smell is really lovely and I love how well it works. Will definitely be buying the bigger size as my next purchase.

  29. Monique (verified owner)

    I previously used babs clary sage & geranium deodorant which I loved but I’m now using the lime & cedarwood paste which is so fresh! Highly recommend.

  30. Amy (verified owner)

    So happy I found this!! I have eczema and so everything I put on my skin is the result of a lot of trial and error and often wasted dollars. That’s why I am so glad I stumbled across this little gem! It doesn’t irritate my skin, it smells lovely and really works!
    The customer service is excellent and I always appreciate a company that has sample size options, I’ll definitely be trying the rest of the products!

  31. Anita (verified owner)

    This is the most effective natural deodorant I’ve tried. It works all day and doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin. Love it!

  32. Nat (verified owner)

    Always love your work but this has got to be one of my all time FAVEs! Smells amazing and lasts all day long…thank you for creating such goodness xx

  33. Chloe (verified owner)

    I have been using babs clary sage & geranium deodorant paste for a few years now but after using the lime & cedarwood paste, I am a convert! I love it even more! It works great for sweaty & stressful days. Great product as always from Babs, highly recommend it!!!!

  34. Kylie (verified owner)

    After having trialled several other brands, Babs is by far the best deodorant I have come across. The product is lovely and creamy & melts into the skin beautifully. It has not left greasy or grey marks on clothing and dries clear on the skin. I have not had issues with odour and the fragrance is nice & subtle.

    Andrea made the purchasing a lovely experience by including a hand written note and a sample product as well as an email message when my order had been shipped.

    I stumbled across the brand completely by chance and am so pleased I did!

  35. Esmée (verified owner)

    LOVE IT! I’ve been using the Tea Tree natural deodorant for a while now so wanted to try out another and the Charcoal natural deodorant is just as amazing! It’s super smooth to put on and dries clear! I apply in the morning and lasts the whole day!! Before finding babsbodycare I used to constantly apply my spray deodorant during the day, glad that’s a thing of the past!

  36. Egle (verified owner)

    The best Deodorant I’ve tried so far!!! And have an amazing smell too. Thank you 🙂

  37. Siobhan (verified owner)

    I am in LOVE!

    I have been using Babs citrus deodorant for many many years now and decided to give this new one a go.

    Wow! It is so smooth, silky and feels amazing to put on and smells delicious!! I usually don’t favour the bicarb free style but this one has personally worked for me on my stinkiest of days!
    Thanks Babs!

  38. Tamsin (verified owner)

    I’m a convert! I was already using the Geranium & Clary Sage deodorant which I love but I have found it can’t deal with stress sweat. You know the kind I mean – when you’re having a particularly bad day or dealing with a really stressful situation. On those days I still ended up woofy. So far with the lime & charcoal I have found it holds up. I think the charcoal gives it a bit more oomph in the stink stakes.

    When you first put it on it can be quite disturbing that it’s dark grey, but it rubs in totally clear and I’ve worn it with white silk and it didn’t leave any grey marks. Like all natural deodorants I’ve tried, I still get some marks on my clothes in the armpits and as I remove my clothes I get white marks on them (tip: roll up your top before you take it off).
