Pure Henry Opinion

I am surprised by the success I had from Island Deodorant, so it definitely makes the best natural deodorant list!  It is not scented, yet it provided good odor protection.  After being tested with mild, moderate, high activity levels, as well as hot temperatures, we found it maintained odor protection.  You maybe need to reapply after high activity levels.   It glides on easily.  Residue is minimal.  It is not an antiperspirant, so it will not prevent moisture.  The regular formula contains baking soda so if you are sensitive to it, it could irritate you.  The sensitive formula doesn't contain baking soda and works well for odor protection, but it is a much softer formula, leaving significant residue when applied.

The probiotics in Island deodorant are the secret to its successful odor protection.  The bacteria that live on the underarm skin, hair follicles, and sweat glands, add to underarm odor.  It is a newer area of study but adding beneficial bacteria to the underarm area in theory alters the bacterial balance under the arms helping to eliminate odor.

Pure Henry Opinion

This natural deodorant impressed me with its ability to absorb moisture.  It absorbed the most moisture of all the natural deodorants I have tried.  It will absorb moderate sweating, not heavy. Its sent is mildly medicinal, yet you can definitely smell the essential oils it contains, giving it an overall pleasant aroma. It provided decent oder protection through a workout, everyday living, and  hot outdoor temperatures.  Reapplication  is needed after a workout, though.  Piper Wai recently developed a stick, but I think the jar formula works better.  It does leave minimal residue, and if you use the jar the residue gets on your hands which is a slight negative for me.  It contains less baking soda than a lot of other natural deodorants which makes it less likely to irritate your armpits.  This is definitely one of my best natural deodorant picks.

Activated Charcoal, which is used in this deodorant, has been shown to significantly reduce odor.(4)  Activated charcoal has great adsorption properties and helps neutralize odor causing bacteria.

Pure Henry Opinion

I wanted to write about this deodorant because it has received a lot of press this year for being a great natural/clean deodorant.  This deodorant has a lot of positives, and it is far better than traditional deodorants that are full of harmful chemicals, but it does contain a synthetic ingredient, propylene glycol.  Propylene glycol is effective at absorbing water which makes it ideal for a deodorant. It also is easy and smooth to apply and will not leave any residue; both of those characteristics are a positive for me. When I tried this deodorant I liked the scent, and I thought it did a good job of keeping me dry and odor free, however, I did develop significant irritation from it.  If you want a completely natural deodorant this deodorant is not for you.  I don't consider this a top pick on my best natural deodorant list, due to the use of propylene glycol and the irritation it caused.  

Pure Henry Ingredient  Spotlight

Propylene glycol, a synthetic ingredient is listed as the first ingredient in Kopari deodorant.  It doesn't build up in the body over time and is generally recognized as safe, however, it is known to cause skin irritation.   The irritation issues with propylene glycol are contact dermatitis and contact urticaria, which is immediate swelling and redness of the area that has come into contact with it.(5

Pure Henry Opinion

The best natural deodorant is hard to find, but Freedom deodorant is one of my favorites.  I really like the scent of bergamot mint.  It provides good odor protection though workouts, everyday living, and hot outdoor temperatures.  It will not block sweating, but it will absorb some moisture. The stick application is nice, but it is soft so you only need to roll it up a little bit per application.  Two to three swipes of the stick is sufficient.  As with most deodorants there will be some residue.  It does contain baking soda which could be problematic if you have a sensitivity to it.  It is a little more expensive than the other options, but I do like it.  

Pure Henry Ingredient Spotlight

Arrowroot powder is used in a lot of natural deodorants because it has good moisture absorption qualities.  It is a starch with a high level of amylopectin which had been shown to absorb moisture.(6) Arrowroot powder has a soft, silky texture giving the deodorant a nice feel when applied.  

Ingredients

Cocos Nucifera (Coconut Oil), Arrowroot Powder, Banking Soda, Beeswax, Essential oil and oil blend of Sandlewood, Vanilla, Bergamot, Lemon, Corrandier, and Peppermint.
