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!

Effective but still gentle to my sensitive skin. It comes in a glass jar that is easy to apply. I prefer it to natural stick deodorants that gets a little messy from the deodorant that sticks to its sides and cap after being applied. A bonus is the lovely fragrance.
This is the first of Bubble and Bee's deodorants that I have tried, but not the first natural deodorant. Previous deodorants were giving me either allergic reactions or intertrigo rashes. Not fun. Since using the Lemon Clove for sensitive skin, my pits look the happiest I have ever seen them! Also have zero problems in the sweating department. My only compliant is that the Lemon Clove (which initially smells lovely) eventually sours. It still keeps BO under control and there is no transfer of smell to clothes, but sticking my nose under there at the end of the day? Kind of sour. It does a great job, but I'll be trying a different scent next time.
I bought several different flavors of the sensitive pit putty, to see which scents i liked best - so far my all tme favorites are the geranium lime and lemon clove, with the almond coconut in second place. I’m not a flowery scent gal, and these smell terrific. I love the products! They work well, smell terrific, and don’t give me a rash - and i like that i’m not putting toxic stuff in my body! Also - their customer service is the best! They are great folks.
Before using this product, I had a bit of intertrigo and heat rash that was irritated more by another natural deoderant that I had been using. This sensitive skin formula was gentle and even nourishing. Within a week I was back to wearing sleeveless shirts. It's easy to apply and smells lovely. Only downside is that it does require a couple of reapplications during the day, but I live in the very hot, humid South.
