SOLIDSILK® Deodorant. Earl Grey (Bergamot Italian Orange) with a hint of herb garden make a pleasant, clean citrus & woods fragrance. Non-gendered.
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.
How long it lasts:
Each 2.1 oz (60 gram) full-size tube should last one person 6 to 12 months with regular use.

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) | 2.1 oz net wt | love the earth - we sell refill capsules to reduce waste so you can reuse the outer tube again and again
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.
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 essential oils and phthalate-free premium aroma isolates. We use the term fragrance to refer to these essential oils and aroma isolates.
I’ve been using this deodorant religiously for about 6 years but the new packaging is so bulky and heavy and I’m so sad to say that’s a dealbreaker for me. :( The packaging they used before was lightweight and slim - which fit easily in my purse or lululemon fanny pack. I used to have three or four separate deordorant sticks for my bathroom/gym bag/purse, etc. Will likely check out some other brands when I run out.
Hi Ally, sorry to hear you hate the new packaging. We tried to come out with something to reduce waste (which also reduces cost since refills are over 20% cheaper to buy). The new tube is fatter than the old tube since it has to have the mechanisms inside to hold the refill capsule. The old one was single use which meant it could be slimmer.
We are considering adding refillable travel deodorant tubes in the future so maybe that will be an option for you to consider.
A relative gave me a gift from No Tox Life five years ago and it included their deodorant. The concept is revolutionary and the product is elegant. It lasts a long, long time, smells divine, and is effective while being safe for women to use in a critical area of the body. I have never turned back and this new format is a great advancement.
I only wish they would bring back the Sandalwood and Fig Pine versions, but Desert Rose and Citrus is simply beautiful.
Thank you for making your deodorant in a container! I purchased one of the cubes previously and it’s easily my favourite natural deodorant but I was super confused as to how to hold it; I kept it in the paper bag it came in but that was awkward to store and eventually got worn out. This is better though something similar to the lip balms would be top notch if it would work!
I only docked one star because it says Earl Grey in big capital letters so that’s what I was anticipating it would smell like but it doesn’t at all. In little letters it says “clean citrus woods” and that’s much more accurate. I still really like the smell; it’s quite gentle. It’s just very much not what I was expecting. Putting Earl Grey on the label is just creating false expectations.
Great product and very much recommended; just a little misleading.
I LOVE this deodorant. It's the most effective clean one I've ever tried. I loved the package-free option but it had some flaws. I'm so glad there's finally a refillable version!!
Best natural deodorant I’ve ever used. This deodorant actually works!
I will never ever use any other deodorant. I’ve had problems with others in the past…reactions to aluminum, irritation, etc., I’ve used natural deodorants with baking soda but they clog my pores. This deodorant is refreshing, effective and feels invisible on the skin. I love the new packaging!
I have tried at least 30+ natural deodorants that are aluminum free and none work nearly as good as this one!
I am a big fan of the new refillable packaging! Not only is it better for the environment, it is more secure, doesn’t waste product at the bottom, is less messy to apply and glides on more smoothly! I just wish you’d offer some more scent options. I truly miss the old grapefruit mango and the lavender scented options! 🙏🏻
I've tried many different deodorants and No Tox by far is the best. It helps keep odor away.
This is honestly the BEST deodorant I have ever used and I've been hooked for the last few years. I figured I should write a review for anyone thinking about trying - it's a game changer! Thank you so much notoxlife for creating such nourishing, clean products that work. Earl grey is my go-to scent and my boyfriend uses it too. My last tube lasted me close to a year (with him applying frequently too). I will be a forever customer. Thank you again!!!
