SOLIDSILK® Deodorant. 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 puck or cube will glide on lightly and smoothly.

New 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.

Available sizes:

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 all full size cube 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.


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.

Love it

I’ve bought this several times and it’s my favorite. Works much better than the handful of other natural deodorants I’ve tried. I usually need a touch up later in the day but it’s been great despite temp swings and even through moderate workouts.

Great smell, lasts a long time

I want to love this deodorant, but unfortunately it gives me a rash. It does work really well and lasts a long time though so I’m sure it will be great for most people.

Hi Erin, I'm sorry to hear you have a reaction to the product - we can have you return it here for a full refund, please initiate a return from your account so we can help you out:


Best of the best! Even my husband will use it. No chemical, no fragrance but all the odor protection.


It works better than any deodorant I’ve ever used and it doesn’t have all the toxic chemicals. I’ll never use anything else.

It works

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


Wish this had worked but it broke my pits out terribly

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!!
