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 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.
