Natural deodorants that work and do not stain

If you’re ready to switching to a natural deodorant, this is what you need to know

Natural deodorants that work are an important part of good health care and sweet arm pits. The most common questions we hear are does it work and does it stain?

With our lovely deodorants, you won’t ever have to worry about persistant stains again and they will work nicely, after a transition period and in some cases when used more regularly. However they are not anti-perspirants so will not affect the amount of sweat produced by your body.

So here are a few of our favourites and we have many more brands at Bodywise so come and take a look.

Herb Farm Fresh Natural and Active Roll-on Deodorant

This roll-on deodorants contains mineral-rich Himalayan salts to fight odours and antibacterial echinacea and calendula plant extracts. The aroma is from orange, ylang ylang and lime essential oils, with an Active choice, being more woody.

Kaia Naturals Deodorants

New from Canada, this popular brand uses activated charcoal to absorb sweat and a probiotic to encourage healthy bacteria in your arm pits. With lovely and interesting fragrances you are spoilt for choice.


A 2 to 4 week transition period can be expected when transitioning from antiperspirant to natural deodorant. Studies show that antiperspirant users experienced an increase in odorous bacteria in the underarm area when they stop using antiperspirant.

During week 3 odorous bacteria should subside and moisture levels normalise.  By week 4 your body should have fully adjusted to natural deodorant. Continue to use the takesumi detox® as a daily deodorant. Our charcoal formula will continue to detox and deodorize.


With the #takesumidetox charcoal deodorants, you won’t ever have to worry about those embarrassing stains again!

Naturale Deodorant

No Aluminium, Chemicals, Staining!

Lasting protection especially for those who exercise.  And in importantly, Naturale Deodorant comes in a card board push up so can be recycled

This is what you need to know if you’re ready to switch to a natural deodorant,

Anti-perspirants are out as they usually contain aluminium chloride* and block sweat glands to inhibit moisture release. Natural deodorants use natural fragrances and anti-bacterial agents ranging from baking soda, clays, herbs, honey and coconut oil to disguise and reduce the formation of odours.


At Bodywise we have a great range of lovely natural deodorants, including Dr Hauschka, Speick, Biologika, Dr Organic, Dirty Hippy and Kaia. You won’t have to worry about embarrassing stains and after a transition period these natural deodorants will work nicely.

For those who have used anti-perspirants to suppress sweat for a long time, there can be a noticeable initial change in the armpit microbiome (bacteria). Transition from an anti-perspiration can be a bit whiffy for a few weeks for a few people. If that is case persevere daily and use more frequently during the day until your pits bacteria create a healthy balance. Products vary in effectiveness and type and generally what will suit you is a very personal experience.

Deodorant Creams in jars are not for people who don’t like the sensation of applying cream to armpits, so try others that come in a recyclable container, as a roll-on or spray.

Wishing you sweet and healthy armpits
