Who is this for?

Pit Putty Orange Vanilla Organic Deodorant is for anyone that wants to smell like an orange creamsicle! It's safe for kids (barring any personal allergies), adults, men, women, even pregnant and breastfeeding women. The orange vanilla scent is so delightful we even made a matching body butter. The orange is a fresh and simple citrus and vanilla gives it a beautiful creamy sweetness. But not an overpowering artificial vanilla, a true vanilla bean scent with even a hint of floral to it. It just smells good enough to eat. All of our Pit Putty Sticks, even those with baking soda, are gentle on even sensitive skin. 

For heavier sweaters

Apply Orange Vanilla Pit Putty Organic Deodorant any time you feel wetness and it'll dry you right back up on contact! The formula is mostly powder, so you can safely reapply any time and any *where*. It works great on feet, under breasts, in folds of skin, in the groin area. It works as a body powder, too!  

No natural substance will stop you from sweating, as it's a natural process of the body. The next best thing is to use a powder-based deodorant like this Pit Putty Stick *absorb* wetness. It may be more inconvenient, but it’s the best way to keep moisture-related issues under control without having to resort to an antiperspirant. 

For heavy sweaters, you can also pair it with the matching Orange Vanilla Pit Putty Deodorant Cream!

For sensitive skin

Use Orange Vanilla Pit Putty Organic Deodorant alone, or paired with Orange Vanilla Pit Buddy Sensitive Cream. The zinc oxide in the cream will help protect against skin-to-skin friction, while the extra powder will help draw moisture out of your skin. Pit Putty is a great option to choose if you're experiencing wetness-related irritation like intertrigo or heat rash. Most underarm rashes are actually caused by wetness, so using a product that's mostly powder (like Pit Putty!) is the best thing you can do for your skin. 

How do we make it?

It's just four simple ingredients we mix in a big old Hobart mixer we've affectionally named "Bart." We take organic arrowroot powder and mix it with organic extra virgin coconut oil (it smells so good), a less-than 5% concentration of baking soda, a touch of organic orange essential oil and a splash of vanilla extract. (Ok, we weigh all of our ingredients and use standardized formulas every time.) Blend it together until it's fully mixed and the right consistency. Then we actually stuff the product down in to its tube by hand (wearing gloves always) and then smooth the top on a tempered glass surface. It can't be poured because the mix is so powdery and it can't be made with big machinery. 

It truly is a putty-like consistency, that's why we named it Pit Putty! When the batch is done, a member of the "bee" team from the labeling department comes and gets it. They clean the tubes, apply the labels, and add a batch sticker to each tube. Once the batch is ready, we put it in our inventory system and it goes in our warehouse and we ship it to you! We do all of this in our own facility. We don't outsource production or shipping to third-party labs or warehouses. We insist on doing it all. 

Why use Pit Putty?

Pit Putty is USDA certified organic, so you can trust that what's *on* the label matches what's *in* the product. No mystery ingredients like "fragrance." Organic certification also ensures against the presence of GMO material, artificial colors, petrochemicals (like ozokerite), or other synthetic chemicals. 

Pit Putty doesn't keep you from sweating.Sweating is a natural process of the body that helps you regulate temperature and even helps kill viruses and bacteria. The body sweats to remove buildup of toxins, such as by-products of protein metabolism that would otherwise have to pass through the kidneys. When you use an anti-perspirant, you're interfering with this natural process. Organic deodorants help to control odor without disrupting our body's natural built-in detoxification pathways. 

Body odor is actually caused by bacteria. We all have a unique microbiome of bacteria on our skin (aka "body chemistry.") And it can change over time based on a number of factors (environment, hormones, genetics, stress). When we're born, we have eccrine sweat glands all over our body. Eccrine sweat glands release basically salt water. When we hit puberty, our apocrine glands develop in our underarms and groin. Apocrine glands release more than just salt water. This sweat contains fatty acids, amino acids, hormones and their metabolites, metabolism byproduct -- it's a stew of compounds on which bacteria can feed.  Different strains of bacteria create different types of body odor that can be onion-ey, sour, cheese-ey, and more. So when we say "body chemistry" that's what we mean. The unique compounds in our sweat and the blend of bacteria on our skin. 

Holistically formulated

We formulated Pit Putty holistically to stop odor at the source. First, by absorbing perspiration (bacteria needs moisture to grow) and second by choosing essential oils and scent extracts that stave off bacterial growth. Orange essential oil is known for having antibacterial properties and even vanilla does too! The fact that they smell great is a happy coincidence! Finally, a small amount of baking soda (less than 5%) alkalizes the underarm slightly to make it inhospitable to bacterial growth as well. 

Most companies just load up their formulas with artificial preservatives, too much baking soda, and other harsh ingredients so each of their variations work the same for everyone. That's what you've gotta do to be carried in the big box stores. But we're not. We're different. We formulate holistically, understanding that each person is unique. That's why we have so many different formulas and why we have our deodorant replacement guarantee. It's all about finding the right blend for your particular body chemistry.

    Pit Putty

    Posted by melissa hilbish on 14th Jun 2023

    I love the smell and texture but it does not stay on my skin. Very flakey application and falls off. I have to really rub it in to make it stay. Maybe I just got a bad batch but I have flakes all over my house.

    I have used this aluminum free deodorant for several years. It smells great and keeps me dry all day. The only down side is how badly it crumbles during application when it is nearly gone. But if I apply it gently without pressure in one direction as the current instructions say, that really helps. I highly recommend it.

    This stuff smells so good and goes on so easily. It is a little flaky at times but I don’t mind since it is aluminum free.

    Quite literally the best deodorant ever! I spent years trying everything under the sun, only to develope a rash and be sweaty and smelly. Since I began using this product I have no irritation, no smell, and more confidence. Such simple ingredients that do an amazing job!

    Orange vanilla scent

    Posted by Judith on 22nd Jul 2019

    I'm a big big fan of the almond coconut scent pit putty so I thought that I'd try another smell, but this one smells too much like Goo Gone. Hard pass for me, but I'm sure the smell is going to make someone else very happy

    Texture and smell

    Posted by CP on 9th Mar 2019

    I previously ordered this deodorant in the Lavender mint vanilla scent and the smell and texture was awesome. This time I got it in the vanilla orange scent. The sent is AMAZING, however the texture leaves a lot to be desired. It’s overly powdery/chalky and prices of it drop off over the place when I’m applying and just wearing the deodorant. I wish this scent had the same smooth, slightly waxy texture of the last one I ordered.

    No rashes!

    Posted by Unknown on 7th Nov 2018

    I made the switch to non-toxic deodorant 8 months ago, and have had rashes from every non toxic brand I have tried. This one smells great, and it doesn’t give me rashes.

    Redness and burning is gone!

    Posted by Allis G on 19th Oct 2018

    I've tried a few different natural deodorants with some harsh side effects including small to big rashes and burning. I did some research on what was causing this and Bubble and Bee came up basically saying it's because some other natural deodorants didn't use a powder in their products, which keeps from rubbing your underarms to the point of rash. I decided to try B&B's Orange Vanilla Pit Putty. I like the smell of it and it cleared up my rash within 3 or 4 days, however, I feel that re-applying throughout the day is necessary to keep from getting my natural musty smell. It would be nice if I didn't have to do this. Otherwise I really like this product and will continue using this brand.

    It really works!

    Posted by KP on 26th Aug 2018

    I’m so happy I found Pit Putty! I’ve used several other natural deodorants over the past two years but I would always end up with redness, itching and sensitivity in my underarms. Once I started using Pit Pitty, the very next day I noticed those symptoms decreasing. Weeks later, I’ve had no issues and it’s such a relief not to worry about it! The powder is the key to dryness and comfort, and the smell is great too. Thank you, B&B!

    This is one of the better non-aluminum deordorants I’ve tried. It does a pretty good job keeping my dry for the majority of the day. I do still find myself smelling in the evening. I certainly don’t last into the next day like I can with anti-perspirant but maybe that’s normal? This did not cause a rash like others have, so I’m happy about that. I think smell I my biggest issue here.

    I have used this product on and off for a few years and I love it! I tried a few other healthier deodorants and they did not measure up to the pit putty. It works great for me and I love the scents!

    Love this scent!

    Posted by Steph on 9th Aug 2017

    Purchased this to reapply with the sensitive cream deo and it really does help me stay fresh with no negative skin reaction. It's mostly powder and I do have to rub it in a bit but barely have to put any on for it to work. A little goes a long way! Granted I'm using it as a "refresher" can't speak to how it works on its own but works great with the sensitive orange vanilla cream! I love the orange and vanilla scent! :)

    Favorite deodorant

    Even though I no longer live in Utah, I order this deodorant online.

    It smells so amazing. The ingredients are safe and nothing bad. It works and I love it so much. No irritation at all. My son had a problem with bad reaction to other deodorants at stores and Dr said to find and organic one and we did and were so happy. Both my son and I have one each. It is my favorite and I will never use anything else ever again. You just have to be gentle putting it on since it's all natural and it comes with great directions. It also washes off easy too.

    thank you!!!

    Posted by Lisa on 4th Mar 2017

    You guys will save me money on dry cleaning. I often work hard wearing suit jackets and regular deoderant sucks. Not only do I not like putting chemicals on my skin, it stinks. This stuff has me smelling like an orange creamsicle and doesn't prolongs the wear of my jackets. Absolutely amazing , I recommend Bubble & Bee to everyone

    In love

    Posted by Carrie on 23rd Feb 2017

    Love this scent! Of all the natural deodorants I have tried this is by far the best. Never have any irritation. I prefer the stick to the cream myself. I love it so much I have bought as gifts and recommend whenever I can. I prefer the stick to the cream myself but the cream feels nice and soft. I keep mine in the refrigerator and am able to get a whole years use from it this way.
