Earl Grey (Bergamot Italian Orange) with a hint of herb garden make a pleasant, light 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 puck or cube will glide on lightly and smoothly.

Extra strength formula: This concentrated deodorant is strong and effective. Use only one light swipe per armpit. Not recommended for sensitive skin.

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 light swipe to refresh your protection. After the detox period, the deodorant should last 8 hours without need to reapply.

This size:

Zero Waste Large Cube (no packaging or holder - store in airtight container otherwise it will get dry and hard to apply over time) | 3.5 oz | can last up to 6 to 12 months with regular use

See tube options (not zero waste) here.

ee all full size cube options here.

See all trial size puck options here.

If you shave, wax or epilate, or for 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 irritation. Apply the moisturizer or oil or butter first then apply the deodorant. 

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.

It works

None of those aluminum free deodorant work for me except this one.

Kathy T. (Havre de Grace, US)
Great product

I love the way this works and I love that I can avoid the plastic waste. I got the 3.5 oz cube to start, but didn't like having to clean my hands after application. (Ok - it's morning, I'm not a morning person, so...)

Next I bought the same product in the applicator. Again, worked great! However I didn't want to buy the plastic applicator again. Sooo...I bought another 3.5 oz cube, and cut it to sort of fit the plastic applicator from the last order, then used a spoon (and my fingers) to push the product out to the edges. And - it worked!

I can't help but think that if they offered the product in the same / similar size and shape of the applicator I bought, my life would be easier. I'm committed to removing plastic waste wherever possible in my life. This product works well and with a little effort, can be put into a more standard shaped applicator.

All in all - a great product. I look forward to seeing how this company evolves.

Hi Kathy, we just launched our new refillable tube, it is not completely zero waste but it is a lot less waste and then you don't have to get the deodorant on your fingers!

Gentle application, light and sophisticated scent, and it works!

I’ve been using Notox bar deodorant for 2 years. I like both the Rose and Earl Grey. I’ve tried other no packaging deodorants and what I know is my Notox works. It works in hot California summers, it works after a great workout at the gym, it works after chasing grandkids. I still smell fresh. I’ve purchased for my busy daughters and they love it too.

I have been using this for years now & I absolutely love the way it smells, how it blocks any body odor and is tox free! Win win win! I recommend this to all my family/friends!!

Lauren C. (Des Moines, US)
This is awesome

So glad I discovered this deodorant - smells great and love that it doesn't have any plastic packaging!

Janna H. (Toms River, US)
our favorite deodorant

After trying out quite a few natural, chemical-free deodorants, this cube from No Tox Life is the hands-down winner. After a week or so of adjusting to it, I no longer smell or even sweat that much by comparison. And if I skip an application, it's not the end of the world. Sure, using a cube versus a stick has a learning curve, but it's well worth it. My husband agrees and loves his too! We keep the cubes on a little soap dish in our bathroom medicine cabinet and love, love. love that they are packaged and delivered with no waste (it all goes in the backyard compost!). I also forgot to mention that I love the subtle scent of desert rose :) Truly a great, effective product that we will use forever! Thank you!

The best in the world!

Zero waste, completely invisible and long lasting.

Kacie B. (Bend, US)
Works really well but be careful!

I've been using this deodorant for a couple of years and it's the only natural one that works for me. That being said, I'm not sure if the ingredients or formula changed, but it does cause irritation. More specifically, this deodorant can't be used after a wax because it has enzymes in it meaning it will cause irritation i.e. peeling, burning, redness, etc. I also learned while on a trip to Hawaii that it BURNS BADLY when you come in contact with salt water. Unfortunately, I couldn't use deodorant on this trip because of this reason and because I was in the ocean frequently. Other than that, I like it but you have to be mindful when using it!
