A "sensitive skin" deodorant that actually works on odor -- and your skin!
With more than a decade 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 not that simple.
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!
When we formulated Pit Buddy, 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! We also eliminated coconut oil so those with allergies finally have an option!
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!

Love, Love, Love and it doesn't cause a rash.
This super Pit Putty is hands down the best. Baking soda irritates my underarms. When I first started the natural deodorant journey I did not know this. With Stephanie's kind help and a bit of time I figured it out. So when BubbleandBee came out with the sensitive skin formula I was so happy. Has been my go to from the beginning. Once a year I purchase enough for the year, durning the winter due to the heat being an issue. Always have 2 flavors open at once and alternate and even mix the two. A dab of super and another is always interesting. Over the years the super formula is my go to. Very skin soothing also. Just try it!
Love all of these deodorants! This is the 4th one I’ve bought. My favorite is the regular lemon and clove but they were out so I got this one and I am not disappointed in the slightest. I opted not to do summer shipping and it was melted when i got it and It never went back to the original consistency and is still softer than it’s supposed to be but that is on me not the company. So I would definitely pay for summer shipping when I need another one!
I'm a repeat user for this one and just loves the smell of it. Plus it doesn't irritates me underarms and I don't smell after using it all day.
I truly hope that your products (especially the sensitive skin deodorant) will be around forever! I really value your company. There is no other deodorant that I can wear without skin irritation.
After years of trying to find a non-irritating deodorant, I finally happened upon your site....glad I did because I'm so happy now with the results!! I could go on and on.
It's a great product and seems to be the only deodorant that works for my overly sensitive skin!
I cannot say enough good things about the sensitive skin line of deodorants from Stephanie! I have always had an odor issue... not anymore. I also had a reaction to baking soda bad rash. I started my natural deodorant journey before the sensitive skin formula was available. BubbleandBee staff were super helpful trying to fine something that worked, but in the end it was the baking soda. So I had to return to regular deodorant. Once I saw that there was a sensitive option I couldn’t wait to try it. It is amazing and buy enough for the year in the winter for the best shipping to my area. Thank you BubbleandBee for your excellent customer service over the years! P.S. my skin craves this cream it has helped keep my pits be rash free and healthy!
This product actually healed my skin! I had developed a rash under my arms from another product that I had used. I attempted to heal the rash using various home remedies and then finally resorting to pharmaceuticals. Nothing worked! Truly, this went on for months.
I came across this product online and decided to try it. I am so pleased to say it healed my skin!! I can't recommend this product highly enough!
Finally, a wonderful smelling silky soft creamy deodorant that does not irritate me! I have super sensitive skin but this one is perfect for me. I love it!!! And yes, it keeps you smelling great too.
I have made this my summer deodorant for the last two years. I would qualify as a heavy sweater at this time of year, and the switch to natural means reapplication midday UNLESS I use this scent. I often combine it with the regular Pit Putty stick of the same scent if I want extra wetness protection. I find that the clove cuts the patchouli nicely if you're at all concerned about "smelling like a hippy", as my BF is fond of saying! The sensitive creams have the best texture - however don't always lend themselves to quick & discrete reapplication. But nothing works as well as using this as a morning base!
I have pretty sensitive armpits so when it comes to natural deodorant i ALWAYS get a rash from the baking soda. I have been using this deodorant for about a week and I have not gotten a rash AT ALL. Even after shaving I did not break out. I rated it 4 stars instead of 5 because I was hoping the smell would be more pachuli but instead its more lemon. You do have to reapply throughout the day but that doesn't bother me, small price to pay for having rash free pits.
This is my third deodorant so far and I think I like this smell the best. Not too strong and not too sweet/fruity. The formula is great too because it doesn’t break me out and keeps me smell good.
I was using another company's product and kept having rashes, after contacting customer service at Bubble and Bee they recommended sensitive formula and I have been using for about 6 weeks and I have had no rash. This is a deodorant and there is some sweating but there is no odor. I love this product.
