Best Natural Antiperspirants & Deodorants: 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.

Let me begin with a disclaimer: 

This list is not for the purist of all things safe and natural.

For those of you who are, let me direct you to the Blissful Miss List of Best Natural Aluminum-Free Deodorants. Read on to understand the difference between the two lists and why I created both.

Deodorants vs. Antiperspirants

There is a big difference between deodorants and antiperspirants, and it is especially important to understand for those seeking out natural products.

While deodorants keep us from being stinky, antiperspirants are what prevent sweating. 

Many traditional products are both a deodorant and an antiperspirant, and therefore offer both odor and wetness protection, but make sure you read the label to be sure.

Why Deodorants are Safer than Antiperspirants

Aluminum is the active ingredient in most antiperspirants and is what helps prevent wetness. And while aluminum is a natural ingredient, it is not safe when absorbed into the human body. It has been linked to neurological disease such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, dementia, ADHD, autism and more. In addition, studies show a link to breast cancer as well.

Potassium alum is an ingredient many antiperspirant manufacturers tout as the safe solution to aluminum, but according to Dr. Mercola, it is not safe either.  

The Conundrum for Both Natural Odor and Wetness Protection 

So how does one get both odor and wetness control and still protect their health? 

Well, if you figure it out, let me know!

There are a handful of Amazon reviewers who say their aluminum-free deodorant helps with wetness even though the manufacturer doesn't make this claim. For those who have a minimal sweating problem, these may work just fine. Or you may find that a natural deodorant may do the job on low intensity, low stress days, while other situations call for a wetness protecting antiperspirant.

While I initially set out to create one list for safe and natural deodorants and antiperspirants, after my research I decided to create one list dedicated to aluminum-free deodorants and a separate list dedicated to antiperspirant/deodorant combos. While all of them do contain aluminum, they are in all other ways the safest among those listed on the Environmental Working Group and sold by Amazon.


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. 

Amazon Reviews

All of the Blissful Miss Lists 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.


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.

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.

  • Unscented Original Roll-On Antiperspirant Deodorant by Ban for Unisex

Amazon Review Quotes

The only thing that works for me and there is no greasy wet residue. It lasts all day long! Only the unscented. The scented items are awful!
I originally purchased this deodorant a few years ago after reading that, among commercial antiperspirants, it has the fewest bad-for-you chemicals. It keeps me dry and stink-free without extra fragrances. :) Highly recommended!
I've been trying a myriad of deodorants and antiperspirants until I found ban. I used to suffer several problems like rash and other skin-related problems, stains in my shirts, need to reapply several times a day, bottles that leaks, some scent (even in unscented versions) and the list goes on. After I started to use ban, all those problems are gone!

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.

Amazon Review Quotes

 I sound like an ad here, but there are only two kinds of deodorant: Mitchum, and all the other ones. Mitchum is the strongest there is, but it goes on smooth, doesn't irritate, doesn't stain my clothes, and it lasts a long time. Sadly, some drug stores don't carry the roll-on anymore, instead selling on the gel, which isnt' as good, and tends to be more expensive. Thanks to Amazon for selling the good stuff.
I am a female and I realize this is designed for men. But this is the best product that I have ever tried that absolutely does the trick in keeping offensive odor away and also perspiration.
It does not stain my clothes like many other of the roll ons do. It does not cake or discolor my underarms. It comes unscented which I prefer so as not to interfere with my applied fragrance of the day.
Our family, both male and female, has used this product for decades. It works, it's truly unscented and we would never use anything else.

EWG - 1

  • Great for Sensitive Skin
  • Dermatologist Tested & Approved
  • Allergy Tested, Non Irritating

Product Description

It makes perfect scents - a soothing roll-on mild enough for ultra-sensitive skin and effective at providing long-lasting protection against odor and wetness. And that's not nonsense. Ideal for everyone and those normally unable to use antiperspirants or deodorants. Appropriate for anyone prone to eczema, atopic or contact dermatitis. Water-based formulation won't cause stinging, burning or itching. So gentle it can be used right after shaving. Won't irritate skin. Provides superior antiperspirant action, yet less likely than other antiperspirants to plug pores, aggravate razor burn or cause acne and shaving bumps.

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.

  • Solid that looks white but goes on clear and dry
  • Less residue than Original Solid

Works very well. Leaves no white stain. Easy to apply. Goes on dry.  
We cannot find this item in any stores near us. So glad to have found online! Best deodorant that works for me! Thank you.
Ban won't wear off, as the day wears on...
My wife's favorite, hard to find the unscented kind in stores.
