When it comes to deodorant, it's what's on the inside AND outside that counts. Mass-produced antiperspirants and deodorants are packed with chemicals like parabens, aluminum, and phthalates that are harmful to your health. 

To top it off, most deodorant comes in plastic cases, resulting in more than 15 million pounds of plastic trash each year (that would fill 200 Boeing 747 airplanes)! But don't worry, you can still reduce plastic waste without raising a stink. Introducing our favorite sleek, sophisticated clean deodorants, with intoxicating scents and odor-fighting power. 

Meet your new (and improved) pit sticks.

There are no harmful ingredients, like aluminum, in this clean deodorant, but it can still withstand a hot yoga class. And yet it's so natural you could eat it (please don't). Oh, and the company offsets 100% of its carbon footprint by investing in forest preservation.

Not only does it totally work, but this clean deodorant is made by hand in small batches by two awesome humans who are totally committed to sustainability. And there's no plastic here – it comes in a compostable paper tube (with adorable drawings) that is biodegradable.

Noniko Starter Kit

Why It's Cool
The "100% customer satisfaction guarantee" pretty much says it all, but let us count the ways: a refillable stainless steel case; plastic-free; smells great; and works like a charm. And yes, it might be a splurge, but you truly only need one swipe, which means it lasts a really long time. 

$45 (initially, followed by $22 every 3 months)

One of the only truly natural (Ecocert-certified) deodorants, we love the new ozone-friendly air spray that leaves no residue or white marks. It also comes in an (infinitely recyclable!) aluminum container.
