Best Natural Antiperspirants: EWG Rated Consumer Approved

Control your sweaty pits naturally. These antiperspirants are rated safe by the Environmental Working Group and reviewed by human beings. Another great resource from Blissful Miss.

 

A Quick Tutorial

Okay, because "natural antiperspirant" is a tricky thing, you should educate yourself on a few quick things.

  1. Learn the difference between DEODORANT and ANTIPERSPIRANT
  2. Understand why you might actually WANT to let your pits sweat!
  3. What's the deal with "aluminum", the active ingredient in most antiperspirants?
  4. Is there such a thing as a truly "safe and natural" product that fights sweat (Hint: The answer is yes! ... well, maybe. There are products that work for many people. Perhaps you're one of them!)

1. Deodorants vs. Antiperspirants

It's simple.

  • DEODORANT keeps you from stinking up the joint.

  • ANTIPERSPIRANT keeps you from sweating all over it!

2. Sweating Releases Toxins

Sweating is a healthy thing to do. People sit in saunas for this reason. So, if you're a hardcore natural-health individual, you will simply let your pits sweat out the toxins in your body.

Your choice!

Three Options For Wetness and Odor Control

  1. Let your pits sweat and opt for simple odor protection in the form of a natural deodorant
  2. Use a product that gives you wetness protection with completely safe ingredients (you won't release toxins, but you won't introduce them either)
  3. If none of the above works for you, choose a product containing aluminum, but safe by all other standards

Truly "Safe" and "Non-Toxic" Wetness Protection

The first two products in the Blissful Miss Antiperspirant Guide contain no aluminum! They have have "safe" ingredients that help many reviewers control their sweat. Yay!

How Blissful Miss Guides Are Created

EWG

The Environmental Working Group is an organization that rates products according to their toxicity. A rating of 1 is the safest and a 10 is the most toxic. Considering what I just said about antiperspirants, it may be surprising that all of the antiperspirants on this list are rated 1 by the Environmental Working Group, including the one's containing aluminum. 

Amazon Reviews

All of the Blissful Miss Guides begin with products rated well by EWG and are cross-referenced with reviews by Amazon consumers. Only those with 4 stars or more make the cut, so you can trust that human beings have used these products and give them a big thumbs up. Sweet!

Disclaimer

The safety of products suggested by Blissful Miss is based on the Environmental Working Group rating system. This is not to say that every ingredient in and of itself is considered completely safe, but combined with several other safe ingredients receives a good rating by EWG. If you want to ensure every ingredient is up to your personal standards you are encouraged to read ingredient lists and do further research as you see fit.


Blissful Miss List of Best Natural Antiperspirants


2 Aluminum Free Antiperspirants


EWG - 1
CREAM
ALUMINUM-FREE

Only a pea size amount of Oyin Handmade Funk Butter goes a long way toward both odor control AND sweaty pits. Baking soda takes care of the smellies while vegetable powders and Kaolin clay work to absorb your sweat. Awesome! (Unless you appreciate the health benefits of sweating, that is.)

Be advised this MAY cause irritation for those with sensitive skin, but applying freshly out of the shower may help, and/or mixing a bit of water with the cream before applying. Also try layering over some body oil. Spread gently and don't "rub in".

Amazon Review Quotes

This stuff is incredible, every time I use it I am just shocked at how good of a job this deodorant does and how terrible all of the deodorants I've used in the past have been! Not only does it mask any odors your body might try to put out but it also seems to prevent excess sweat, and you hardly need a pea sized amount to do it!

Because Funk Butter has ingredients that absorb and seemingly wick moisture - my sweating has been reduced by at least 50-75%!!! Whaaaat? They don't even advertise it as an antiperspirant!  I can't say it stops it 100%, but honestly has there ever been a deodorant or antiperspirant that does?

Yes, it is weird that you have to apply with your fingers, but it works. So far, all the natural deodorants that I have tried either keep me dry, but let me stink, or take care of the stink, but leave me sweaty. This one takes care of both. I do have to reapply mid-day if I am having a very active day though.

CREAM
ALUMINUM FREE

Real Purity Roll-On Deodorant might just be your new best friend. It's not labeled an "antiperspirant" per say, but reviewers say this aluminum-free product keeps them dry, some say they sweat "less", and even the sweaty folks rave that they don't stink up the place anymore. I say it's worth a try for the safest possible way to be sweat free.

By the way, it's made with the most sensitive skin issues in mind.

amazon review quotes

Finally, a natural deodorant that works at fending off sweat and stink! I've tried every deodorant out there, from aluminum-laced brands to "pure" crystal chunks, and nothing comes close to this. It glides on easily, isn't sticky, dries fasts, smells light but pleasant, and lasts 24+ hours. I'm officially hooked.

Works great on men in the south! I was looking to get away from aluminum (and Potassium Alum) and find a more natural alternative to my deodorant. This stuff is incredible! I wasn't expecting it to also keep me dry but it does - to a degree - if I am slaving away in the yard for hours on end or hitting the gym pretty hard then I will sweat but nothing to the degree of not wearing deodorant AND MOST IMPORTANTLY I don't stink even when I do sweat a little.

Smells nice and light. Works better than any other natural deodorant I've tried. I am a heavy sweater and typically use "clinical strength " type over the counter brands. This has nearly matched it!

Amazon Review Quotes

LOVE this anti-perspirant! It is the only one that doesn't fight with my own body chemistry. Most deodorants mixed with my sweat cause an obnoxious smell - worse than that of the sweat alone. But, this one doesn't. I am so happy we found this one!!!
I swear by this stuff! Perfume free which is a must for me. I also have sensitive skin and this doesn't cause any inflammation - even just after shaving.
I was so fed up with the stick leaving stains on my shirt and Almay has come to be a life saver. There are abosolutely no stains and also the best part is that it leaves the armpit dry even during summer. Thanks Almay!

Amazon Review Quotes

I like unscented deoderant, and this is great for sensitive skin and has a very low "toxicity" rating on the EWG's skin deep website. I try not to use anti-persperant, but sometimes, I need to. So this is my go-to for anti-persperant
The ONLY brand of deodorant that I can use, that doesn't cause me to have an underarm rash. I originally bought the scented brand, but found that the scent bothered my nose a bit. Switched to unscented, and haven't looked back.
This is now a very hard-to-find product. After a lot of trial and error research I found that this was the only deodorant product that I could use that didn't irritate my skin, while at the same time being just as effective as any other quality deodorant.

Amazon Review Quotes

People avoid me less now. They don't look at me funny any more and hold their breath when they talk to me. Worth every cent..
Fantastic protection and it last all day for me and my husband. I love that it is effective and is safer to use than almost ever other brand including organic brands. I was out of my product so I had to turn to my husband's Speed Stick. Sure was not what I expected. A plus is that it is unscented so it does not compete with my perfume. Love that!
We have been using this deodorant for 20 years. A little hard to find in the unscented version, so when I discovered I could order from Amazon, I did so. Never stains my clothes, doesn't interfere with perfume, and does the job.

Get a little closer, people ... with Arrid! Not just dry, but extra EXTRA dry. Arrid XX Antiperspirant has been around forever. If you're like me, the name Arrid makes you think "men", but this unscented version is trusted by both men AND women. It is increasingly difficult to find in the stores, so long time fans go to Amazon.

Amazon Review Quotes

This stuff works shockingly well. And you get the added benefit of not smelling like hideous deodorant.

Very good product. Used for over 25 years. Will not switch. Keeps me dry and I can use my colognes with it.

I was really upset to find it gone from all stores in my area ... I have been using it for years and it is the only thing that works for me. When I have tried another product I just get let down and return to my stand by favorite.

Amazon Review Quotes

For the past 6 months I have been suffering from itchy underarms. I have had eczema and very sensitive skin for the past 10 years but itching under my arms was something new. I tried at least 6 different types of anti-perspirants including that crystal rock thing. All of them burned and the itching got increasingly worse. I was miserable and desperate. After 2 days of using this total nonscents product, the itching stopped. A month later, my underarms are much lighter in color and I have had no more itching. I will never go back!!
My sister has had dark underarms for years... she's tried everything- I convinced her to try Total Non-Scents and in less than a month her underarms have lightened up considerably! She says she will never use any other antiperspirant/deoderant again.
After a rough year of trying new deodorants for my ultra-sensitive skin I happened upon this product. Happy to report my skin issues under the arm have subsided! I have no issues with rashes, itchy skin, or odor from non-use. I am so glad to have found this product. It is expensive. However, the bottle will last you longer.
