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.
I usually use the regular formula, but thought to try this one when I saw the ingredients. I LOVE IT! It smells heavenly and it very soft going on, no irritation and I smell good all day, even when I work out. I have tried several of the "flavors" and don't like anything with Lavender in it so am giving those away. The Orange ones are my favorite, they smell fresh and natural, not fake or artificial, and best of all, they work! I recommend them highly! No bad ingredients, either!
Just a small amount goes a long way to all day protection from odor. Very pleasing scent. My other favorite is the Almond/coconut Pit Buddy.
Of all of the deodorants we have tried with BnB these sensitive-skin creams are the best! They work for 24-36 hours and don't irritate my skin as the baking soda formulas have the tendency to do. With the zinc oxide base, I rub any excess into my face right after a shave, and/or onto my arms to start the day smelling great!
Love this product! This is my 2nd jar and scent (1st was almond coconut). Pleasant scent, not overpowering. Holds up to hot days, exercise, and stress. Occasionally have to reapply during the day but overall lasts for the time they say. Doesn't build up/stain clothes. My sister and I have both tried many other brands of natural deoderant and this one can't be beat! I always recommend this product to my friends. Your search for a natural deoderant that works ends here!
This flavor is the best. Worked out yesterday and did NOT need to reapply to get thru the day. Never causes skin irritation - which is reason #1 to use it. I’ve yet to find a better natural deodorant that doesn’t cause skin irritation or has baking soda. Definitely will continue to buy
Allergies to deodorants have been a challenge thru my life. For years I was able to use an OTC "sensitive skin" brand, but then even it left my underarms with an itchy rash.
Pit Buddy works very well and even has a pretty and gentle scent. What a find!
Love this stuff. Usually get the almond for sensitive skin but because of the sale you were out so I tried the orange vanilla. The smell is very mild and nice.
This is my favorite non-baking soda deodorant. I’ve tried several brands over the years but always come back to Pit Putty.
I had a horrible underarm rash that caused me to switch deodorants. I discovered this product and made the switch and the rash went away. I'm sticking with this product.
Just like many others I have tried every natural deodorant there is out there! Most of them either did not work at all, and left me stinking halfway through the day, or worked for a short period and then gave me a rash and angry pits. This product works great! Keeps me odor free and is my favorite of the BB deoderant products! I did foolishly order several at the same time and thus could not take advantage of the deodorant guarentee as it took a while to try them all. That is user error on my part and doesn't take away from the effectiveness of the product! I wish it came in a stick rather than the pot, but I was able to buy a wooden applicator from another company that keeps me from using my fingers and transferring germs to the jar. All in all very happy with the product!
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
