Our Activated Charcoal Deodorant is a great choice for detox or for normal, everyday control.
This coconut oil deodorant stick puts activated charcoal with lime and spearmint essential oils. Activated charcoal is well-known for its ability to pull out toxins and other stuff no one wants in their skin. It has a super capacity for absorbing moisture, which is a great addition to a natural deodorant.
The fabulous scent of this deodorant is from lime and spearmint essential oils. Not only do they smell great, though, they also fight against germs and work to get rid of odor.

Our deodorants have a smooth and simple base made of carefully chosen ingredients. Together, they neatly manage underarm odor and its causes.
Coconut oil is the firm foundation for all of our deodorants. This plant oil is a great core because it fights hard against the bacteria that cause odor while still nourishing your underarm skin.
Getting rid of moisture is an important part of a deodorant’s job. First, so that you feel fresh, but also so that sweat doesn’t stay around to grow bacteria or cause irritation. For this, we pack in as much arrowroot powder as our sticks will hold. It is silky and softening and very good at absorbing sweat.
Beeswax works with the coconut oil to create a strong deodorant stick that glides smoothly during application. We also add a tiny amount of baking soda to make use of its deodorizing ability.
What’s missing from our deodorants is just as important as what is included. All of our deodorants are aluminum free, paraben free, and sulfate free.
A Note About Natural
This is not an antiperspirant and will not keep you from sweating. Instead, it works with your body to naturally absorb moisture and keep bacteria from causing the unwanted odor.
Tip for Switching
When switching from an antiperspirant to a natural deodorant it may take several weeks for your body to adjust. Be patient and ready to apply more often as you adjust.
