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've tried a few but this one works well for me. I have extremely sensitive skin which is what brought me to this website. It keeps me dry even in the summer heat with no negative reactions.
WARNING - NO NATURAL DEODORANT WILL WORK UNLESS YOU HAVE GONE THROUGH THE ARMPIT DETOX PERIOD. GIVE YOURSELF A FEW MONTHS FOR YOUR BODY TO ADJUST BEFORE JUDGING ANY NATURAL DEODORANT! I love Bubble And Bee's Lavender Vanilla Sensitive Deodorant cream! I had been looking for an all natural deodorant for a while and had tried LUSH, Tom's of Maine and Schmidt's. They all gave me a rash on my arm pits. Not cool! I researched Bubble and Bee's and then got in contact with customer service to ask if perhaps the sensitive cream deodorant would work. The ingredients in the sensitive cream are slightly less harsh (not that the regular Bubble and Bee's is harsh at all,) than the regular cream so they suggested I give it a shot. I could always exchange it for a different product or get a refund if I wasn't happy. (And I also have to say, customer service is AMAZING!!!) I tried Lavender Vanilla, Rose, and Lilac. I used the Lavender Vanilla first. It worked really well. I didn't have sweat stains and wasn't stinky. The next pot I used was Rose. I found I had a bit of a smell with Rose. I saved Lilac for last and also found I had a bit of a smell with it. When I contacted Bubble and Bee about the two scents that really didn't work, they sent me two new pots of Lavender Vanilla since the Rose and Lilac didn't work out. I've since gone through those and have just ordered another 3 pots of Lavender Vanilla. Since you only need a pea sized amount, I usually go through a pot every 2 months or more - give or take how humid the weather is. I put a pea sized amount on each morning and then before bed. If it's an insanely hot and humid day I will occasionally apply again mid day, but not often. I shower every other day, so after cleansing in the shower, I use Dickenson's Witch Hazel astringent to kill any left over stinky bacteria before applying the deodorant. On non shower days, I still wash my pits and use the astringent. Bubble and Bee does sell a Witch Hazel astringent for use with natural deodorant as well. I found that without the Witch Hazel, there was always a tiny, TINY residual b.o smell, but not horrible. After I started using the astringent before applying, (which is exactly what the website recommends,) I had ZERO smell! As I mentioned in the beginning, NO natural deodorant will work right after switching from a chemical antiperspirant. Your armpits have to sweat out all of the crap that has clogged the pores. Some people say give it two weeks. I say give it a few months to truly be able to judge. I didn't think natural deodorants were working after two weeks but after a few months of persistence, they do. I'm smell free and pit stain free. Bubble and Bee is my go to for deodorant and I'm in Canada. I don't care that shipping is a bit crazy! This stuff works and I'm not switching!!!
This scent is one of them that works with my body chemistry. I am on my second jar, but also change between several other fragrances. I find this one works really well for situations where you may be around someone who is fragrance sensitive, or if you work in the medical field. It is basic & unobtrusively clean. Highly recommend trying!
I have been using this deodorant for just over a month and have not had one rash--which is a big difference from getting a painful rash every week with a popular store-bought brand with less powders. I do still get itchy at times (my skin is very sensitive) but is only a slight irritant that I mend by washing it off every night and giving my skin overnight breaks. Works well for me through typical work-in-conditioned-office days; when I plan to workout, I'll bring the little glass jar with me to reapply. Scent is simple and mild, smells great actually. I am impressed with Bubble and Bees willingness to educate people on this subject and so relieved to have something that finally works for me. :)
I was having a hard time finding a natural deodorant that didn't cause my underarms to break out in a rash. This product is so mild and feels good under there - no rash! It seems to work through the majority of the day but does better with a second application in the afternoon/evening. I love the smell too. The lavender is not overwhelming like it often can be. I'd definitely recommend this for any sensitive underarms!
I love the Lavender & Vanilla Sensitive Pit Putty Cream! The smell is nice, goes on smooth, works well for me even on 100 degree days- I do re-apply mid day, but really great deodorant!
I had purchased the almond coconut sensitive skin deodorant previously, and the fragrance was a little strong for me, but it totally took care of any perspiration smell all day. I decided to try the Vanilla Lavender for a little lighter scent. It went on smoothly, but felt silkier than the Almond Coconut (almost like it didn't have as much arrowroot as the AC), but it didn't inhibit odor at all for me. I reeked with an acrid sweaty smell within 3 hours, not at all what I'm used to in a sensitive skin natural deodorant. I realize that all of our body chemistry is different, so what didn't work for me, might work wonderfully for someone else. I do love the great customer service of Bubble & Bee, and will definitely continue using the Almond Coconut sensitive deodorant.
At last a deodorant that works for me and does not leave me with stinky pits in just a few hours. Lasts all day until the next day and doesn't irritate my skin. Compared it to the regular version with the baking soda and this one won hands down. If you have tried the regular version and it didn't work, try this one even if you don't have sensitive skin. It just might work for you.
