Deodorant (Desert Rose + Citrus) - Extra Strength - 2.5 oz Tube

Deodorant (Desert Rose + Citrus) - Extra Strength - 2.5 oz Tube

Regular price $21.98 Sale

Desert Rose + Citrus: Pure essential oils of Valencia orange and Egyptian geranium make this a green citrus scent with floral highlights. This deodorant contains 100% pure essential oils.

Our extra-strength aluminum-free, baking soda-free and paraben-free vegan deodorants are designed to keep you fresh with a very light application. Since they only need one light swipe per armpit, they last much longer than ordinary deodorants.

How it works: We use enzymes to help zap the odor-causing bacteria, and tapioca starch to help absorb excess wetness. Each stick or cube will glide on lightly and smoothly.

Size and packaging options:

Each 2.5 oz full-size tube should last one person 6 to 12 months with regular use.

See zero waste options here.

New extra-strength formula: This concentrated deodorant is strong and effective. Use only one light swipe per armpit.

Transition period from aluminum deodorant: Aluminum-based antiperspirants include big brand products, as well as alternative products like crystal sticks, alum sticks and mineral salt sticks. When switching away from these, you might experience a detox effect for a few days to a couple weeks.

What we mean by detoxing is: you may be more stinky and sweaty at first while your body is ridding itself of the buildup that has accumulated with antiperspirant use. Antiperspirants block the pores so sweat can’t get out. Your body needs to sweat to remove waste.

Re-apply as needed: You may want to reapply during the first few weeks until the detoxing is finished. To reapply, first wipe the area dry, then just use one or two light swipes to refresh your protection. After the detox period, the deodorant should last all day without need to reapply.

This size and packaging:

Full size (Plastic Tube) | 2.5 oz net wt | love the earth - please recycle or re-use your plastic tube 

If you shave, wax or epilate, or for very sensitive skin: As with any deodorant, we do not recommend applying directly after shaving or hair removal, and we recommend using an extra layer of cream or moisturizer (a small bit of shea butter works great) first if the skin is particularly sensitive and prone to rashes or irritation. 

What to do if it dries out: It may evaporate over time and the stick will become drier, and glide less. This doesn't mean it's no longer working - it still will work and be effective. You can re-hydrate it by spritzing with water or using a wet finger to get the “slippery” feeling again.

Store in airtight container: For the unpackaged deodorants, keep it in an airtight container to prevent it from getting dry.  This is especially a factor in dry climates.

High heat: Keep your deodorant out of direct heat or sun (for example your car in the summer) because your deodorant could melt at very high temperatures.

About the ingredients: 

Dipropylene glycol - moisturizer that helps with slip and glide - rated 1 (green) on EWG, considered safe and non-toxic even as a food additive

Tapioca starch (modified) polymethylsilsesquioxane - a light version of tapioca starch modified with silica microspheres (from non-toxic inert substance that makes up plants, animals and the sand on the beach) to absorb wetness - ideal for heavy perspiration

Aloe vera juice (organic) hydrated (with water) from inner fillet - softens and protects skin while helping with glide

Sodium stearate - thickener from plants, also a common ingredient in cleansers and soaps for texture


Natural enzymes - fermented enzymes from natural yeast to help zap odor-causing bacteria 


Cyclopentasiloxane - a lightweight silicone for glide that doesn't cause build up on skin like dimethicone - washes out clean with soap or body wash - based on silica, a naturally occurring mineral 


Golden jojoba wax - a desert native plant wax that mimics the skin's natural barrier - helps with soothing and skin protection

Allantoin - a skin protectant found in many plants and animals, ours is derived from the comfrey plant


Bamboo extract powder - a silica (mineral) rich powder used to absorb wetness and help with smooth application

Phenoxyethanol* (and) Caprylyl Glycol (and) Sorbic Acid - preservative to keep your stick fresh in the medicine cabinet - paraben-free *used at less than 1%

Fragrance - scented with a proprietary blend of pure 100% essential oils. We use the term fragrance to refer to this essential oil blend.

Best NON anti-perspirant deodorant I've ever used and I never thought I could step away from anti...

You all need to try this. It has a mild, suuuuuper-light fragrance that just keeps you from smelling bad. :) Rolls on mostly dry, so you'll want to fully dry your underarms before applying.

For further success, if you're transitioning from anti-perspirant to natural deodorant, you can first use their charcoal soap in the shower for a couple days in a row, to scrub out the residual anti-perspirant most people have under their arms, because it doesn't all always come off in the shower.

Finally what I was looking for!

For the past few years, I've been slowly switching my personal hygiene products to things that are sustainable, non-toxic and involve little or no packaging. This deodorant line is amazing!

I have tried both the Desert Rose Citrus, and the Early Grey. I love that they are ultra concentrated (just one swipe/armpit), so they last for a long time. They come in a simple wax wrap, so I moved it into a tin container to keep it from drying out. I bought the small sizes initially, and am going to be moving to the larger brick for the best value. 5 stars, would buy again and would recommend to others!

Just As Reviewed

I ordered this product based on the FABULOUS reviews it received by countless customers. I am very happy to report that they were absolutely right! I never worry about my garments being stained by powders, as they always were by previous natural deodorants I used. The smell is unbelievably pleasant. I do agree with the other reviewers, that a means to hold the bar effectively for application is the one problem. Yet, it is the smallest price to pay for the greatest, easiest and cleanest protection. Thanks, No Tox! You gave me exactly what I’ve been looking for.

Obsessed!

I have the citrus-rose in a proper twist up dispenser and a briquette each of the Earl Gray and the Aloe/unscented. I love them all. Functionally I prefer the one contained in a dispenser because I don’t enjoy getting deo on my hands while applying with the lil loose guys. That said, I love that no packaging = more sustainable. In a perfect world, I’d love if I could purchase refills for the twist up container. Effectiveness wise this stuff is top tier, I’ve tried a lot of natural deodorants prior to these and this is The One. No residue on clothing and super effective at keeping me smelling nice. In my experience it lasts about 8 hours before I feel like I need to add an extra swipe. I have super sensitive skin so use the unscented for the first day after shaving and then switch back to scents the following day. Okay, just buy it y’all it’s very very good.

Works Great

The Earl Grey scent is very pleasing, without being overly floral or smelly like cologne. This deodorant also works really well, so I feel confident and good about my environmentally friendly choices.

Best Ever Deodorant

I have been using this deodorant for 2 years and I absolutely love it! I detoxed with the detox bar initially and use it more in the summer now for maintenance to help with keeping odor at bay. Keep making this product, love it!!
