Deodorant Ingredients

Deodorant Ingredients 101

Over the past 80 years, deodorants and antiperspirants haven’t changed much. We’ve taken a totally new approach, using the best clean ingredients out there to create incredibly effective formulas. We don’t use sticky fillers, overpowering fragrances to cover up odor, or pore-clogging aluminum. Instead, we’ve combined the most nourishing plant extracts and skin-friendly ingredients to make formulas that prevent odor, fight sweat, and protect your skin.

Over-the-counter antiperspirants can contain up to 15% aluminum in their formulas.

How Deodorant Ingredients Should Help Your Skin

Step 1
Our Top Odor-Fighting Ingredients

• Ethylhexylglycerin
• 2-Methyl 5-Cyclohexylpentanol
• Saccharomyces Ferment
• Yeast Extract


Keep Odor-Causing Bacteria in Check

From head to toe, your skin is home to a host of bacteria and microbes—some good, some bad—only a few of which create body odor. (We’re looking at you, Staphylococcus hominis.) Most deodorants use harmful disinfectants to wipe out all microbes, which is far from ideal. One study cited microbiome disturbance as a chief cause of skin conditions like dermatitis, acne, infection, and more. We take a different approach that targets bad bacteria while keeping your microbiome intact.

What ingredients can kill the bacteria that causes body odor?

There are several ways to fight odor without harsh chemicals. The main ingredients found in our Aluminum-Free Deodorant might have complex names, but they are actually plant extracts that hunt down and kill the bacteria that cause body odor. The last two in the list are in our unscented formula. They’re extracts from naturally-occurring yeast, which kill odor-causing bacteria while still being gentle on skin. This formula also has prebiotics to support your skin’s microbiome, promoting the good bacteria to crowd out the bad.


Absorb Sweat Without Clogging Sweat Glands

We believe sweat is an essential bodily function that’s great for your skin. It helps regulate your temperature and rid your skin of waste and impurities. Our Aluminum-Free Deodorant is formulated to absorb sweat instead of clogging your sweat glands with aluminum salts, like most antiperspirants. We don’t use baking soda or talc—only plant starches that absorb sweat without caking under your arms or staining your shirts yellow.

Does deodorant absorb moisture?

Many deodorants seek to fight or cover up body odor but don’t address moisture (i.e. sweat) at all. Our Aluminum-Free Deodorants are formulated with plant starches that helps absorb sweat without leaving skin sticky or irritated.

What ingredients in deodorant absorb sweat?

Many deodorants use baking soda to absorb sweat, but we find this ingredient leads to irritation for many people. We use corn starch instead to absorb many times its weight in moisture without clumping. Our unscented formula uses Diatomaceous Earth and Arrowroot Powder to absorb moisture.

Step 1
Our Top Sweat-Absorbing Ingredients

• Zea Mays (Corn) Starch
• Diatomaceous Earth
• Arrowroot Root Powder

Step 1
Our Top Friction-Reducing Ingredients

• Aloe Leaf Juice
• Glycerin
• Propanediol


Reduce Friction

If you’ve ever experienced uncomfortable chafing under your arms after a workout, you’re not alone. Many deodorants and antiperspirants prevent or absorb moisture, but don’t address the fact that they can leave your skin dry and irritated. We include ingredients that give your skin just the right amount of hydration to keep it soft and smooth, reducing chafing so you can move freely and comfortably.

What deodorant ingredients are best for chafing?

Reducing underarm irritation requires a few elements. The first is the right amount of moisture. For that, we use Aloe Leaf Juice to hydrate and soothe. The next is giving your skin that soft, smooth feel, for which we use plant-derived Glycerin and Propanediol.


Prevent Irritation + Inflammation

Our underarms withstand a lot of darkness, movement, and moisture every day. Combine that with harsh chemicals and some inflammation is inevitable. That’s why we use soothing ingredients in our deodorant formulas to help prevent redness, bumps and breakouts. It should be noted, though, that even though aluminum-free deodorants are a better choice than aluminum-filled antiperspirants for most people, some will have sensitivities or allergic reactions to certain ingredients. We always recommend testing a new product on a small area of skin to make sure the product and your skin are compatible.

What deodorant ingredients are good for irritation?

Nothing beats the ingredients we use to calm and soothe irritated skin. Aloe Leaf Juice calms irritated skin and provides the hydration skin needs to repair itself. Witch Hazel is a powerful anti-inflammatory that keeps swelling down so your body can heal. Citric Acid is great at balancing your skin’s pH levels, another important factor in balancing your skin’s chemistry gently.

• Aloe Leaf Juice
• Witch Hazel Extract
