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 have been trying out a new deodorant for the last 3 weeks and let me tell you , this stuff is amazing! It is the sensitive deodorant from @bubbleandbee and it works like a charm. We have had some hot days and this carries me right on through them. The scent I got is orange vanilla and it smells heavenly, just like an orange creamsicle , not overpowering but just right. I love this deodorant nothing irritates my skin so it lives up to its name of being a sensitive deodorant.
Grab some popcorn because this is going to be a long review, short life’s story included.
Sincerely, I want to say thank you to Stephanie because since I began using pit putty for sensitive skin, I have been free of the rashes, discoloration and peeling I had been experiencing since I began my natural deodorant journey three or so years ago at the age of nineteen.
To list he deodorants I’ve tried chronologically as best as I can, I’ve used rock deodorants, Tom’s of Maine deodorant sticks, Crystal brand deodorants in roll-on and spray-on varieties, Kiss My Face sport deodorant, Schmidt’s deodorant sticks (in all sorts of varieties), Kopari roll-on coconut deodorant, Alaffia deodorant stick...I may be missing others, but I just wanted to illustrate the point that I’ve tried many natural deodorants. When I first began using natural deodorants, I was floored by the odor. I had read prior to making the change that I would experience detoxification which would mean odor...but this lasted far longer than the period of detoxification I had read about which was no more than a few weeks, maybe a month at most. I told myself that’s just what using natural deodorant was like. Until I couldn’t handle the irritation anymore and began trying everything I could find when I could afford it.
Long story short, If they weren’t painfully irritating (redness, itching, some even gave me blisters) they had nearly no odor protection. Some gave me terrible skin discoloration and clogged the pores of my underarm skin. Some wouldn’t give me extreme rashes right away, but my skin would start to peel after 2-3 uses which would then lead to pain and discoloration.
I thought it could be my diet (I like stinky foods like garlic, onions, seaweed, etc.; I’m also on a vegan ketogenic diet for weight loss, and weight loss can lead to smell, as well) or my hormones that just made me so smelly. I cried about that because I had not the most remote idea of where to begin rectifying those problems, and the idea of taking on all the possible variables made me wonder if I had to choose between being odor free or not using toxic, carcinogenic products that were tested on animals.
I almost gave up hope on natural deodorants because I couldn’t afford to keep trying newer, often more expensive deodorants. I also couldn’t handle the constant blow to my self-esteem that feeling constantly stinky despite trying new things again and again and again dealt to me. I couldn’t believe that wanting to avoid carcinogenic ingredients and wanting a cruelty-free and vegan deodorant that didn’t acutely irritate my underarms seemed practically impossible.
Enter pit putty for sensitive skin. No, pit putty didn’t solve my life. And it didn’t work as well as it does now for me until I stopped wearing synthetic fibers (polyester, etc.) and started spraying my laundry with Nature’s Miracle.
But I can wear this to work without fearing B.O. creep in (or out, rather) toward the end of my shift where I do a lot of running around and a decent amount of lifting (I work at a library). I can also wear this to my yoga workout without feeling smelly at the end. On especially active days, I need to re-apply at around eight hours after using a PH-balanced or otherwise gentle cleanser for my underarms (I use Honey Pot PH balanced feminine wash or Dr. Bronner’s castille soap). Sure, I do take a couple of extra precautions here and there, but they are just measures I take to give myself the best chance of odor protection. Not to mention after 2-3 weeks of use I’m only an eighth of the way through my jar of Orange Vanilla Sensitive Deodorant, so I can safely say this jar will last me 2 months even with my frequent application.
TL;DR I’m just honestly grateful to have soft, normal underarms again without the price of carcinogens or otherwise toxic substances, animal-based ingredients or animal testing. I am obviously sold.
I absolutely LOVE this scent! It goes on easy and lasts! Will be buying again
This is THE BEST natural deodorant I’ve ever used. All the others gave me rashes and I still stunk
I have been struggling with a deodorant that I do not have a reaction to. This is the first one of many that I do not have a problem with, but it also smells good and works great!!
I use B&B regular deaderant, have for years, and wanted to try the sensitive skin variety for right after shaving. I works, smells great and is effective. No rash. I get rashes if you look at me wrong. I have never got a rash from B&B Deodorant. Thanks for making a SS product.
I have searched high and low to find a sensitive skin deodorant that does not cause a rash. After trying numerous different brands of so-called sensitive skin formulas, I decided to try Bubble & Bee and I am so glad I did. I FINALLY found the perfect deodorant for me. The texture is perfect, the scent is heavenly and it keeps me dry and odor-free, even after working out. Best of all, no rash, ever! I am so thrilled and am going to try the other scents as well. Thank you Bubble and Bee, I am a customer for life!
I finally found a deodorant that works for me from bubble and bee! I absolutely love the orange vanilla sensitive cream! In the past I have tried the Pit Putty Jasmine scent and the Pit Perfect in the Lemongrass Tea Tree. Both left my skin red and both left me with odor well before the day was through. Now with the orange vanilla sensitive cream (love the scent) I don't have any redness at all and I can go the whole day odor free and most importantly...it's organic. Customer service was so easy to work with...the deodorant guarantee is awesome. Thanks so much!!
I am so pleased with this product. So far, no more skin irritation like I had with other products. And I love the ease of use and the scent. Great product!
I have long been on the hunt for a deodorant that doesn't cause irritation. I've purchased literally tons of them and most of them cause irritation - not this one! It is really nice, creamy, smells great (I got the orange vanilla and have the almond coconut one on order). I am so happy with this product, it keeps me dry and smelling good. Actually, I like ALL of the products I've purchased from Bubble & Bee! mostly organic, great smells, I can feel good about using them and everyone says I smell great! thank you!!!
Love this deodorant. Very smooth and very gentle. One bottle lasts me a very long time. Wish that they would put their Bumble and Bee label on it. When I go to order more, I'm never sure what brand it is and I certainly wouldn't want to order another brand by accident! :)
I have been looking for a cruelty-free deodorant for literally years. I have tried several from Toms (ineffective), to Kiss My Face (gave me a rash) to Schmidt's (also gave me a rash). Needless to say, nothing worked. I either ended up smelling like a garbage truck by the end of the day, or I had rashes so bad they required medical attention. After she heard my story, a friend of mine recommended this deodorant, and I am sold for LIFE. Not only does it smell like an orange creamsicle, but after using it for two weeks I have never once needed to reapply, and I haven't had any issue with rashes, itching, or discomfort of any kind. My ONLY negative with this deodorant is you have to scoop it out of the tub and apply it by hand. Not ideal, but definitely something I'm willing to live with. Well done!
Finally, a deodorant that is safe, doesn’t irritate sensitive skin, is effective, and it smells wonderful! I was so glad when you created this version. Another Bubble and Bee must have in my daily routine.
