Description: This is our original 'Pit Putty with an added kick! Not only do you get the arrowroot powder to help absorb perspiration, but you get the powerful, earthy scent of patchouli that deodorizes like crazy. Cloves have been chosen for their known anti-bacterial properties against the specific bacteria that cause odor, and we throw in lemon to sweeten up the scent and deodorize. Added baking soda gives it another kick, as it raises the pH of your underarm to help prevent bacteria and odor. We originally had just the Lemon & Clove and it was just called Pit Putty. Then we made this one with the added baking soda and patchouli--so we called it "Super Pit Putty."

Who Should Use Super Pit Putty?
Super Pit Putty Organic Deodorant is for anyone that wants a silky-smooth application in a gender-neutral scent with a great track record. It's safe for kids (barring any personal allergies), adults, men, women, even pregnant and breastfeeding women. All of our Pit Putty Sticks, even those with baking soda, are gentle on even sensitive skin.
For heavier sweaters
Apply Super Pit Putty Organic Deodorant any time you feel wetness and it'll dry you right back up on contact! The formula is mostly powder, so you can safely reapply any time and any *where*. It works great on feet, under breasts, in folds of skin, in the groin area. It works as a body powder, too!
No natural substance will stop you from sweating, as it's a natural process of the body. The next best thing is to use a powder-based deodorant like this Pit Putty Stick *absorb* wetness. It may be more inconvenient, but it’s the best way to keep moisture-related issues under control without having to resort to an antiperspirant.
For heavy sweaters, you can also pair it with the matching Super Pit Putty Cream! The cream stays on more through sweating but the stick has more powder for wetness absorption. When you pair, you get the best of both worlds!
For sensitive skin
Use Super Pit Putty Organic Deodorant alone, or paired with Super Pit BUDDY Cream. The zinc oxide in the cream will help protect against skin-to-skin friction, while the extra powder will help draw moisture out of your skin. Pit Putty is a great option to choose if you're experiencing wetness-related irritation like intertrigo or heat rash. Most underarm rashes are actually caused by wetness, so using a product that's mostly powder (like Pit Putty!) is the best thing you can do for your skin.
How do we make it?
It's just six simple ingredients we mix in a big old Hobart mixer we've affectionally named "Bart." We take organic arrowroot powder and mix it with organic extra virgin coconut oil (it smells so good), a less-than 5% concentration of baking soda, a touch of organic clove essential oil, a splash of lemon essential oil, and a dash of patchouli essential oil. (Ok, we weigh all of our ingredients and use standardized formulas every time.) Then we blend it together until it's fully mixed and the right consistency. Then we actually stuff the product down in to its tube by hand (wearing gloves always) and then smooth the top on a tempered glass surface. It can't be poured because the mix is so powdery and it can't be made with big machinery.
It really has a putty-like consistency, that's why we named it Pit Putty! When the batch is done, a member of the "bee" team from the labeling department comes and gets it. They clean the tubes, apply the labels, and add a batch sticker to each tube. Once the batch is ready, we put it in our inventory system and it goes in our warehouse and we ship it to you! We do all of this in our own facility. We don't outsource production or shipping to third-party labs or warehouses. We insist on doing it all.
Why use Pit Putty?
Pit Putty is USDA certified organic, so you can trust that what's *on* the label matches what's *in* the product. No mystery ingredients like "fragrance." Organic certification also ensures against the presence of GMO material, artificial colors, petrochemicals (like ozokerite), or other synthetic chemicals.
Pit Putty doesn't keep you from sweating.Sweating is a natural process of the body that helps you regulate temperature and even helps kill viruses and bacteria. The body sweats to remove buildup of toxins, such as by-products of protein metabolism that would otherwise have to pass through the kidneys. When you use an anti-perspirant, you're interfering with this natural process. Organic deodorants help to control odor without disrupting our body's natural built-in detoxification pathways.
Body odor is actually caused by bacteria. We all have a unique microbiome of bacteria on our skin (aka "body chemistry.") And it can change over time based on a number of factors (environment, hormones, genetics, stress). When we're born, we have eccrine sweat glands all over our body. Eccrine sweat glands release basically salt water. When we hit puberty, our apocrine glands develop in our underarms and groin. Apocrine glands release more than just salt water. This sweat contains fatty acids, amino acids, hormones and their metabolites, metabolism byproduct -- it's a stew of compounds on which bacteria can feed. Different strains of bacteria create different types of body odor that can be onion-ey, sour, cheese-ey, and more. So when we say "body chemistry" that's what we mean. The unique compounds in our sweat and the blend of bacteria on our skin.
We formulated Pit Putty holistically to stop odor at the source. First, by absorbing perspiration (bacteria needs moisture to grow) and second by choosing essential oils and scent extracts that stave off bacterial growth. Lemon, clove, and patchouli essential oils all have been found to have antibacterial properties. The fact that they smell great is a happy coincidence! Finally, a small amount of baking soda (less than 5%) alkalizes the underarm slightly to make it inhospitable to bacterial growth as well.
Most companies just load up their formulas with artificial preservatives, too much baking soda, and other harsh ingredients so each of their variations work the same for everyone. That's what you've gotta do to be carried in the big box stores. But we're not. We're different. We formulate holistically, understanding that each person is unique. That's why we have so many different formulas and why we have our deodorant replacement guarantee. It's all about finding the right blend for your particular body chemistry.

I like the scents. These deodorants work well.
I have been using this product for many years. I find that each container lasts almost a year. Of late, there are many non-aluminium deodorants on the national brand market. None is as safe, effective, and lovely smelling as this formula. The scent is gorgeous and subtle that works nicely with my signature parfum, Aromatics Elixir.
Made in the USA from all natural ingredients!!Does not break give me a rash like some all natural deodorants do. Protection lasts all day Will be my new go to deodorant!
This stuff is awesome! It really controls the odor and helped with sweating. I noticed it working after just 2-3 days. Smells great too!
Love this stuff. It works, the smell is nice, it's not poisonous!
The one thing that would be 5 stars is Fragrance free
Every other natural deodorant I tried caused a stinging, red rash. I was going to give up trying them, but I'm so glad I tried this one. I can actually use it!
This product is GREAT! I had a painful/angry"rash" from other natural deodorants. I put this putty on as soon as it came in the mail and by the next day the rash was getting better and is now gone! (A week later). Product works great, I don't smell!!
I have tried most other "natural" deodorants and was not happy with any of them. I am a "hippy" so Patchouli is a favorite. This is FABULOUS and works SO well. This is my go to forever. End of Story.
I sweat a lot and this is the deodorant that I use when working out and getting really sweaty all day. If you have major sweat and stink then I highly recommend this. The only drawback is that it leaves white residue on clothes, so when I'm wearing clothes for work (business attire) I use the Pit Putty cream in this same scent. But when I work out this is my go to. It is powerful, really the only natural deodorant that will cut through day old armpit stink. I'm just so grateful to Bubble and Bee for creating it because I'd be struggling with stink right now if I hadn't found this.
I like these products as they are healthy for my body and do not overwhelm people with the scent like my 15 year son does with his body spray :) Maybe one day he'll switch to these as well :)
After trying the Pit Putty Organic Deodorant Cream Trial Pack I found that Super Pit Putty and I are just a good fit. I love the mix of Clove and Patchouli scents and it keeps me dry and odor free. I have good results with Jasmint and Spearmint & Tea Tree formulas as well. The added bonus with those too is the minty coolness when worn in the summer! Give them a try and find your favorite, you will be glad you did!
I bought this for my husband and it WORKS GREAT! He even stated that he was impressed with the products ability to keep him feeling and smelling clean.
I've been using the Super Pit Putty for about a week now and I have to say it is out performing other natural deodorants I have used. The scent lasts all day even after a workout. No rash. Which is what the last deodorant I used was giving me. It's definitely different, as far as the application is concerned. I apply and then rub in to avoid the crumbles that fall off right after application (there's still a few stragglers but not much). So I have to say it's a winner! Thanks Bubble & Bee!
It requires one to get familiar with this new way of using a deodorant, but it's well worth the effort. A great product that lasts much longer than regular deodorants and eliminates odor much better.
This has become my go-to deo. I think it works better than any other natural deo I've tried. This particular scent, especially. I really like it. : )
A bit challenging when I first opened it - the first level kinda crumbled and got everywhere but I smushed it back into place and within a few uses there is a nice smooth surface that coats really well. Smells really good and seems to keep me smelling good through workouts and crazy work stress.
Although I’ve only had my new deo for a few days I just want to tell you how amazing it is. I love it! I have been through many natural brands trying to find my perfect fit... this is it! Since switching to natural, I’ve discovered I’m quite sweaty. I was getting a rash from my own sweat. Your pit putty keeps me dry and my armpits are happy :) It’s smooth and doesn’t scratch my sensitive skin. Thank you! Keep up the great work. (Seriously, thank you) Michelle
After 30 years of using antiperspirant and a few disappointments in natural deodorants, I find a product that lasts all day, sometimes into the next day-I've finally made the break from the aluminum zirconium tetrawhatevers. Ridiculous that it took me so long to find this product. IT WORKS!
I believe it's the little things in life that keep us healthy. I do wellness for a living which includes massage. I don't want to overwhelm clients with my smell while at the same time leading by example with wellness. This product is a perfect fit for me.
