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 love the sensitive skin deodorant creams, they never give me a rash or irritation like everything else does. I tried this because of the tea tree oil, which I liked in a different product, but had to quit using because of developing a rash. This deodorant works well for me. It's better than any other on days I don't get a morning shower, which natural deodorants don't usually do well. So while I do faintly smell like toothpaste (no one else notices, just me) it's worth it because it works.
I liked the other deodorant creams (from Bubble and Bee), but my skin was still sensitive to their ingredients. At last, I have found a great deodorant cream that does not irritate my skin! Thanks, Bubble and Bee!
I was using Tom's and Kiss My Face deodorant before but they both caused painful rashes and scarring. Since switching to Bubble and Bee products , my rashes disappeared along with the scarring and that was about a year ago. Love the products!
I purchased this product for my daughter, and she loves it. It keeps her dry even in our very hot weather. She also loves the scent.
Great deodorant! It works ALL day. I regularly apply in the morning and it lasts all day and even through after work gym workouts. Smells good too. Highly recommended.
I have sore, sensitive skin because of a skin disease that causes my skin cells to not stick together. This is the only deodorant I can use. Thank you for your excellent products!
I usually order the regular Spearmint and Tea Tree but decided to try this formula. It is a bit drier than the regular formula but melts quickly to spread. Kept me odor free all day and I really like this scent.
I was having a reaction to the store bought natural DO I was using (red skin, sensitive, peeling, painful) and within a few days of using this, everything was basically cleared up and perfect. Love it. Definitely buying this from now on.
So I have tried a few of your deodorants since I found your company . The Sticks , and the creams . Sticks didnt work for me you graciously traded them for the creams . They worked but I still had this red patch under my whole underarm since day one but was just dealing with it because the creams were working otherwise. Then saw the sensitive kind decided to try it and after 2 days my redness is all gone and it works GREAT .. I'm so glad I decided to try the sensitive kind now i'm completely satisfied and will recommend this to anyone looking for a healthy option that truly works.
I have been searching for an aluminum free deodorant for over 6 months and I have finally found one that works for me! I was using other ones with baking soda, but those made my underarms dry, flaky, and very dark. After trying a few different ones with baking soda, I found this page on Facebook and decided to give it a try. The first deodorant I tried was a stick form and the smell did not work for me, but Stephanie was so great and helped me to find this sensitive cream formula to try. I was a little hesitant about the scent and to be honest when I opened the jar it smelled exactly like chewing gum, but once applied it's a very pleasant, sweet scent. I was also hesitant because it does not have baking soda and I was worried that it would not work, but I've found that I actually sweat significantly less now that I am using aluminum free deodorant. It definitely covers my sweat smell for all my regular activities and the best part is that it does not irritate my underarms at all. They are back to being clear and fresh and are no longer dark. I have just ordered a couple more scents so I can have some variety and I'm sure that those will be great as well. If you are looking for a natural, aluminum-free deodorant definitely try these sensitive creams!!
I have tried and tried to use natural deodorant and it just doesn't seem to work for me. The sensitive didn't irritate my skin but it didn't make me smell good either.
Does the job it is supposed to do. Smells great. And the best part is that it does not irritate my skin.
