Find out which natural deodorant is right for you.
New to the world of natural deodorant pastes? New to Babs? Or perhaps you just want to try a different scent?
We’ve put together a helpful guide on which deodorant is right for you.
We know the questions you’re about to ask – bicarb, bicarb free, beeswax, vegan. What does it all mean?
In short, all our natural deodorants work on the same principals to –
- eliminate odour by using naturally antibacterial ingredients (to ward off bad bacteria which actually causes odour).
- moisturise skin (using nourishing butters like shea and cacao to keep skin soft and healthy)
- keep you feeling dry (botanical plant powders and clays work to absorb wetness)
Natural ingredients that do all the hard work
Bicarb & magnesium are the heavy lifters that help to control odour and create an environment where bacteria doesn’t grow.
NOTE: Some people have a reaction to bicarb which is why we have created bicarb free versions here
Coconut & essential oils as well as beeswax, contain natural antifungal & antibacterial properties to keep bacteria at bay, which means no odour.
Vegan? Opt for our vegan versions (Citrus w bicarb OR bicarb free Geranium & Clary Sage)
Plant powders like arrowroot or tapioca, kaolin clay and charcoal, help to absorb sweat and wetness to keep you feeling dry.
Remember – natural deodorants are NOT antiperspirants, so you will sweat on hot days, when exercising or under stress. You just won’t smell!
Where it all began
Our first and original organic deodorant – Tea Tree Deodorant with bicarb – this guy packs a punch. I needed something that worked! And this was it. Although I love tea tree, I know it’s not everyone’s favourite scent.
Scent – clean fresh, tea tree, with a hint of coconut oil – disappears a few moments after application.
For those – who’ve tried and used a bicarb deodorant with no reaction and are after a heavy weight deo.
Citrus Deodorant with bicarb (Vegan) – works as well, but a little gentler with slightly less bicarb than the Tea Tree. We added Calendula oil and clay to soothe skin & help draw out toxins
Scent – a warming citrus scent – lemongrass, lemon myrtle and clove
For those – who like and have used a bicarb deodorant but don’t like Tea Tree
Geranium & Clary Sage Deodorant – bicarb free – (Vegan option)
By far our most popular natural deodorant!
Suitable for the most sensitive armpits. Don’t let the Geranium fool you, this scent is loved by both men and women!
Scent – Fresh herby and floral. Geranium has a green herby floral scent, clary sage and tea tree keeps this scent fresh and green.
For those – who have had sensitivity to bicarb, or just aren’t sure where to start – try this! We’ve used magnesium instead of bicarb to help control odour.
Lime & Cedarwood Natural Deodorant – bicarb free with charcoal – (Vegan option)
The newest edition to our organic aluminium free deodorants. This guy has all the same things you love about our most popular Geranium & Clary Sage (sodium bicarbonate free) deodorant but we’ve added activated charcoal to take it up a notch. Charcoal helps with detoxification and odour control.
Scent – Zesty & citrusy fresh with lemon and lime and a hint of cedarwood – (think fancy lemonade)
For those – who have a sensitivity to bicarb, or just aren’t sure where to where to start. We’ve used magnesium and charcoal instead of bicarb to help control odour and help detoxify.
