A "sensitive skin" deodorant that actually works on odor -- and your skin!
With 10 years of deodorant formulating expertise under our belt, we know that when it comes to underarm rashes, in most cases it's not about the absence or presence of any one particular ingredient -- it's about how the overall formula acts on your skin. We've heard so many stories about how people react even to other brands' "sensitive skin" formulas. That's because other companies will just take out the baking soda and call it a "sensitive" version. We know it's more complicated than that.
Most underarm rashes are caused by moisture and friction. Whether it's friction from the actual deodorant you're using (hello scratchy sticks) or skin-to-skin friction (itchy!), skin becomes irritated, red/dark and raw. That irritation can then progress to topical infections (bacterial or fungal) that can be even harder to control. Keeping underarm skin dry and friction free is the key to keeping it happy!
So, in our sensitive skin deodorants, we added a nice dose of skin-soothing zinc oxide and a good amount of wetness-absorbing organic arrowroot powder. Zinc oxide does a great job of creating a protective barrier on skin and arrowroot powder cuts down on friction and moisture!
If you're a heavier sweater or live in a humid climate, we recommend reapplying the cream, a powder, or corresponding Pit Putty Stick on top of it throughout the day to keep that wetness down.
The result? A "sensitive skin" deodorant that has been highly requested!

I'm sooo in love with the Lavender-Orange Sensitive Cream Deodorant! This is my first time trying the Sensitive formula, and I'm over the moon about the body-butter-like texture. The scent is both energizing and calming, which is very pleasant for me. Also, for me, this blend is perfect. It lasts all day from 7am-5pm. I reapply in the evening once just to freshen and perk up a bit, but I haven't gotten stinky at all with this formula. No irritation, either. 5/5 stars!
I purchased this scent along with the almond coconut. This one does not work for me after about 3 hours. I tried it for about a week, and I smelled awful by lunchtime. The almond coconut works great, though! The scent of this one is wonderful, and I'm sad it will go to waste. On the plus side, it didn't irritate my underarms like every other deodorant I've tried! Maybe I'll try it again in a few weeks.
I'm a fan of the pit putty. I absolutely love the scents you all offer. I got this particular scent in the mail last week. I was worried the two scents would clash and I wouldn't like it...however I opened the container this morning and smelled it and it wasn't bad or overwhelming like I expected. Even after application I'm happy. My pits smell like I rubbed orange on them LOL. This will probably be my favorite after the spearmint and tea tree (which I love as well!). Although I sweat a little in the winter due to me wearing sweaters and such which makes me perspire...i still smell good underneath which I'm happy about. Thank you for the sensitive line! I hope you continue to make these products
The new zinc Pity Putty works the best for me. I stay dry, I smell good, you can layer over a couple of days, and it doesn't stain my clothes. Minimal packaging and a nice underarm lymph massage, as with all the PPs. I vote for more herbally scents for my pits (and my husband's), but this one is a 4-star scent, so not bad.
I absolutely love this product. The smell is heavenly and it works fairly well. I am a heavy sweater so I normally layer with a Pit Putty. I would love to see this as part of the regular line up of products.
I'm so glad Stephanie came up with a sensitive cream. Bubble and bee is the only deodorant I use. So I was disheartened when I suddenly developed a rash on some I have been using. (It's normal to develop an allergic reaction to any product, I've been told). I thought that was the end. Then here comes the sensitive creams! Woohoo! My rash is even healing while using the sensitive cream.
First of all I can't say enough good things about Bubble and Bee. Their dedication to satisfy their customers is unlike any company I've ever seen. The deodorant is amazing.... because it works! It's a super smooth cream paste that rubs in clear (no pilling or residue) plus the scent is divine and you know the qualify is superb (no artificial scents ever) and being a brown-skinned lady, baking soda seems to discolor my underarms making them darker but now with this sensitive formula my pits are bright and moisturized and smooth without a hint of irritation, discoloration or odor. I run for excercise and spend lots of times outdoors and after a day out and about, my underarms smell clean and odorless, but never unpleasant. I have tried other non-baking soda options from other places and it wouldn't leave me feeling fresh at the end of the day. This one is AMAZING. I'd cry if I couldn't get this forever.
I used many of the cream deodorants for about 6 months Geranium, Jasmint, Lavender Vanilla, Almond Coconut -- love them all so much. Then suddenly my skin said NO MORE! Angry bright red rashes. I thought I must've just been chafing and kept using the deodorants, but within a few days of switching to this sensitive formula the rash was completely gone. I've tried going back to the jars of the original formula now that the rash is gone, but I turn bright red immediately. I'm so bummed this is out of stock now! I hope you make more. Would love Lavender Vanilla or Jasmint -- although the mint one started burning so bad I'm a little wary now.
Having used Pit Putty creams for a few years but recently developing a rash in the underarm area, I tried this sensitive formula. Loved the creamy texture as it goes on very smoothly, and has a nice delicate scent.
Best of all, it works and no rash with this!
I had previously used Bubble & Bee's Super Pit Putty and loved it. However, after using it for quite a while, I started to develop an itchy, red rash under my arms. I tried other scents, thinking it was an essential oil reaction, but the problem remained. I then switched to other similar brands, with still no relief. I finally went back to conventional products, but was not a happy camper adding all of these chemicals to my body again. Then B&B came out with Pit Putty/Sensitive, so I had to try it. And it's AMAZING!! NO itching or redness, just cool, comfortable, nice-smelling pits (scent is very mild). PLEASE DO NOT STOP MAKING THIS!!!!!
My pits have healed after just a few days of use! I've been trying homemade and natural deodorants this year, only to break out in burning rashes, peeling pits and sores. I'm looking forward to trying more of your products!
I L.O.V.E this deodorant! I've been using Bubble & Bee's deodorants for several years now but recently my pits were a red fiery pit of pain. They are normal again and yay! this deodorant works great! I love the orange/lavender flavor - please keep making this!
