For many people, summer’s heat leads to sweating, which leads to armpits that don’t smell so fresh. If you’re one of the folks that can use a bit of help keeping your underarms smelling nice, or at least not bad, thankfully you can turn to any of the following vegan and cruelty-free deodorants.
Dr. Hauschka’s Rose Deodorant
Formerly called Dr. Hauschka Deodorant Floral, Dr. Hauschka’s Rose Deodorant is a quick-drying deodorant that helps you smell like flowers all day long. It’s not an antiperspirant, which is actually a good thing, because antiperspirants clog pores and that can lead to skin problems. But, it’s a product you can use keep a mild, clean, and pleasurable scent despite harsh summer weather conditions.
Kiss My Face Active Life Stick Deodorant
Kiss My Face’s Active Life Stick Deodorant comes in a fragrance-free option that leaves pits smelling, and feeling, fresh all day. Even on days that include long sports practices or hours spent in the heat at the beach. This natural deodorant keeps working regardless and it’s clinically proven to provide odor relief for 24 hours, while maintaining gentleness with a plant-based ingredient formulation. Kiss My Face’s Active Life Stick Deodorant is aluminum and paraben free.
Tom’s of Maine’s Long Lasting Natural Deodorant
Tom’s of Maine’s Long Lasting Natural Deodorant is a vegan and cruelty-free deodorant that works (we know from personal experience). It goes on a bit wetter than other deodorants, but it doesn’t leave any marks on clothing or feel uncomfortable. This vegan deodorant comes in Lavender, Natural Powder, and Unscented versions. It’s all natural too, which means it doesn’t contain aluminum, petrochemicals, or parabens that might seep into the body in places where important glands need to be keep harsh chemical free.
In addition to these vegan and cruelty-free deodorants, we love Jason’s Pure Natural Deodorant Sticks and Herban Cowboy’s Maximum Protection Deodorant. Many of these deodorants can be found in stores like Whole Foods Market and Sprouts market. All of them can be purchased online, on the companies’ websites.
