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!

Love this product! The past year I developed itchy pits no matter what I tried. I can’t count how many different natural types I’ve purchased. This is the best for me. No itch, no smells and keeps me dry. Thank you!
I have have had allergic reactions (underarm rash) to almost all “regular” store brands except one throughout my life. I tried to switch to natural brands (just deodorant, not antiperspirant) and the only one I didn’t react with a rash to didn’t work at all - I would be very earthy smelling by the end of the day. THIS combined with pit putty has been a game changer for me! With the two combined, I have great odor protection and don’t get any rash! The patchouli scent worked well also, but but the spearmint and tea tree scent is my favorite! Also, before trying this brand, I chatted with customer service (online chat) to get some direction and advice about what I could try, and they were super knowledgeable and helpful!
Love this deodorant. Have been purchasing your sensitive line for a few years.
Enjoy this scent overall. Works better than most to stay odor free during the entire work day.
Never used this type of product before. Love it. Would not consider going back to other commercial products. Great scent and works!
This is the only deodorant that I could tolerate without any skin breakout or irritations! For me, a little goes a long way, when I apply it. Very happy! Oh, a great low strength scent!
Purchased this for my 14 y/o daughter who has sensitive skin. She said “Mom, this stuff is awesome, it’s smooth, doesn’t make me itch & keeps my armpits from sweating”
I tried several different natural deos before finding this product. I have now been using it for well over 2 years and cannot imagine using anything else. I had a real issue finding a natural deo that works for me because I found anything with baking soda in it was highly irritating to me. So finding this one without that still works great was amazing. If you've never used the cream natural deo before, my favorite part is it seems to last MUCH longer than any deo I used to use. So, it completely makes up for the slightly more expensive cost up front. I would say one jar lasts me at least six months.
I have tried many "natural organic" deodorants but this is the first one that didn't give me a rash, yet still stops any odor, even for more than one day. I love it! But I wish that they would put a label on it. It lasts so long that sometimes I forget what company I bought it from. Because it has no label, I am giving it 4 stars instead of five.
This is the only deodorant I have found that doesn’t irritate and keeps me smelling good!
Absolutely amazing product! More arrowroot absorbs any sweat, while the spearmint keeps you so fresh smelling! No coming off on clothes, too!
Spearmint sensitive cream works on a surprising 24 hr. time stretch! Unbelievable!!! Love your expertise on ingredients, Steph, and so thank you for making these EXTRAORDINARY Organic products! Be sure to also get the ‘Cool Cucumber face wash, along with the pineapple too!
