Orange Vanilla Pit Putty Organic Deodorant
Description: It started out as a test batch and quickly turned in to a best-seller! The scent is absolutely delicious. It's fruity and sweet with orange, vanilla, and hints of coconut perfectly balanced in swirling goodness. Plus, it works, too! In addition to these great essential oils and extracts and wetness-absorbing arrowroot powder, baking soda is a natural odor-blocker and also raises the pH of the underarm so it's less hospitable to odor-causing bacteria.

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.
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.

Love this product. All deodorants on the market, even "natural" ones, give me a rash - Except for Bubble and Bee products. And they smell amazing.
I love the scents! So far it is holding up for my active lifestyle. Keeps me dry!! I don't have the raw spots that I did using another competitors product.
Be careful not to wear black or else you'll have a mess and be gentle! If you press to hard you will get it everywhere. Other than that it's awesome!
Smells really good and actually works! The only bad thing I have to say about it is that it goes on very thick and white so you have to be careful to not get it all over your clothes and if you are wearing a sleeveless shirt you will need to rub it into your armpit to make the whiteness go away. My husband uses the mint one and use to have redness and sometimes burning in his armpits from his regular deodorant (old spice) but that is starting to slowly go away. I would recommend it to friends :)
Really works, smells good & is not greasy, does better from the fridge
This is a pain to get enough on to be effective. It also gets all over my shirts when I pull them over my head. It's difficult enough to apply that application must be done before the shirt goes on. I will stick with the cream version next time.
So, this was my first natural deodorant that I've ever tried because I have just started to make that shift to all natural products. It smells amazing! I love it and so far have not had any problems with it breaking or crumbling and it goes on really well. But, I have really bad body odor. I will smell bad a couple hours after a shower. So, I also bought the pit primer which neutralizes odors together with the deodorant. I will have them both on but still smell bad half way through the day.... I give it a four star because of the smell and the all natural aspect but I will have to keep looking for a stronger product for my unnatural stink. REPLY: Be sure to contact us about our deodorant replacement guarantee so we can help you find the right product for *your* body chemistry! :D
It works really well, doesn't give me a red rash like my last natural deodorant. Smells good. But when I first opened it, half of it fell on to the floor and was broken. I had to try to press it back into the stick.
Keep it in the refrigerator & it goes on way better & it wont kill you :-)
I have been searching for a safe, organic, and authentic deodorant for years. Finally, I located a deodorant that keeps me dry and smelling great before, during, and after my exercise workouts. I hope this company is around for a long time. I purchased the orange vanilla fragrance and found it to be perfect and not weighty or overbearing.
Put this on at 6AM and past 5 it still smells good. I suggest using this with the pit primer for better results :) This is my favorite smelling deodorant along with the Jasmint and Spearment w/ Teatree oil. I catch myself snoffing my underarms not becuause i stink but because it smells soooo good!
LOVE the coverage, and the smell! Need in a spray! :)
Smell great and works well and does what it says it will do.
I've tried various natural deodorants and nothing seems to do the trick except for the Orange Vanilla Pit Putty. I love it! It works and I only have to apply once. I don't like that it crumbles even though I do my best to refrigerate it. That being said, I'll take the crumbles over stinky pits and toxic chemicals.
I had been using Tom's 24-HR (not) Apricot deodorant, but was disappointed when I perspired; it quit and B.O. arrived. Not so with B&B's fresh orange-scented product, it works as advertised. I put it on in the a.m. & still smell nice the following morning. AMAZING! Thank you for another great working product.
Love the smell!! Works great, working out, running and working horses
finally! a great smelling, effective and safe deodorant!
Love the way it smells and it lasts and lasts.
I absolutely love Pit Putty! I live in a warmer climate and sweat a lot and this product is the only organic deodorant that I have found to work! You may have to apply it twice a day if you sweat a lot but it works great! I made it through Disney World in the 100 degree July heat without smelling bad!! I particularly love this product with one of the deodorant sprays!
I had purchased the spearmint/tea tree deodorant but the orange/vanilla masks smells much better for me!
