There is no such thing as an aluminum-free antiperspirant. There are, however, plenty of aluminum-free deodorants out there—some better than others. Natural deodorants don’t block your body from sweating, but they do keep body odor and bacteria at bay with a combination of natural oils, clays, and ingredients like baking soda. The trial-and-error process can be daunting for anyone who needs to smell presentable around fellow humans, so we did the hard work for you. These are the five natural deodorants our editors trust.

Charcoal, tea tree oil, and cornstarch work together to wick away moisture and reduce odor-causing bacteria. The formula is also free from baking soda.

HoliStick N °3

Agent Nateur

$21 AT VIOLET GREY

This formula does contain baking soda, but it’s also one of the chicest natural deodorants out there. The ingredient list reads more like a grocery list: coconut oil, baking soda, avocado and sunflower butters, honey, and lavender and eucalyptus essential oils.

Natural Deodorant

Corpus

$24 AT VIOLET GREY

This water-based formula makes you feel fancier every time you swipe it on. We love the bergamot, pink lemon, orange blossom, and cardamom scent—it’s more like a luxury fragrance than a classic deodorant scent.

The Visionary

Type:A

$10 AT FOLLAIN

From the packaging to the sweat-activated technology, this deodorant is a game-changer. The baking soda-based formula continues to keep you dry and stink-free for hours and hours—so you always smell like you just applied it.

AER Deodorant

Taos AER

$19 AT FOLLAIN

This formula is 70 percent organic and feels powdery on skin—not wet or slick. That’s due to the arrowroot powder and baking soda, which keeps you super-dry if sweat if your main issue.

Hoppin’ Fresh Deodorant

Ursa Major

$18 AT FOLLAIN

Baking soda-free, this formula glides on like a dream and keeps you not only dry and fresh, but also cool and breezy thanks to the blend of eucalyptus, ginger, rosemary, and lemon.

All the deodorant heavy-hitters—baking soda, corn starch, and kaolin clay—combine to make this geranium, rosemary, and mandarin-scented cream one of the top-performing formulas.

Coconut & Vanilla Deodorant

From the easy-to-apply packaging to the delicious coconut-vanilla scent, this is the natural deodorant that will make you believe they can actually work. It’s been known to convert even the most diehard antiperspirant fans.

Deodorant Cream

Meow Meow Tweet

$14 AT TARGET

The glass jar is sustainable and recyclable, but it’s a little messier to apply than your standard twist-up tube. You won’t care though once you start using the stuff: the baking soda-free formula keeps you smelling fresh without any irritation.

Coconut Deodorant

KOPARI

$10 AT NORDSTROM

Kopari’s natural deodorant has a base of coconut oil, so it glides on clear and won’t leave an annoying stain on your tee shirts. Plus, the coconut scent smells amazing and keeps your skin super-soft and free of irritation.

Soapwalla

$18 AT FOLLAIN

Baking soda, kaolin clay, and tea tree oil team up in this classic natural deodorant formula to fight odor-causing bacteria and gently control sweat. Some fans claim it’s still to date the only aluminum-free formula that’s worked for them.

Eucalyptus Deodorant

MALIN+GOETZ

The strong eucalyptus and citrus scent isn’t for everyone, but this deodorant is one of the best we’ve ever used for keeping us smelling fresh until the end of the day—even in the summer and after sweaty workouts.
