Making the switch to clean/natural deodorants can be a massive learning curve with a transition phase for many as the body adjusts to not using aluminum. Even if you’ve successfully made the switch, maybe you’re like me, and all of a sudden, as your body changes with time, your favorite clean deodorant stops working and starts irritating you. OR… perhaps natural deodorants have always irritated you and you’re struggling to find the right one. Typically, the culprit of irritation is the sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) in the formula and once you can identify the best baking soda free deodorants that work, you’ll be right back to your aluminum free pits in no time 🙂 Want to save some time and money?

…then this Best Baking Soda Free Deodorants That Work blog post is for you!
Over the last few months, I’ve tested seven baking soda free deodorants for a week or so to put it through a full trial of life. I’m a mom of a toddler, an avid weight lifter, and generally someone that lives pretty actively. Although I’m not a big sweater, I can tell a difference if a clean deodorant is working or if I smell.
Something to remember if you’re switching from aluminum based deodorants to natural formulas… these do NOT STOP sweat – they are not antiperspirant. These formulas are deodorants – they neutralize odor and may reduce some moisture, but sweating is the body’s way to detoxify and I personally don’t believe it’s healthy to prevent that from happening by using an antiperspirant.
