The Best Natural, Aluminum-Free Deodorants Ranked by Our Sweatiest Editor
Deodorant reduces bacteria on the skin's surface, while antiperspirant dissolves moisture and prevents additional sweating. Given the lack of natural antiperspirant alternatives out there, I tested only deodorants for this piece. I let my underarms fully detox for almost a month (yes, also a thing) before trying out different brands that came highly rated and/or recommended. I wore each product for a full week, giving my body a completely deodorant-less transition day in between. Some worked well enough. Others definitely did not. Fortunately, I found one that I swear by, and I can confidently say that I'm never going back. Scroll on to learn exactly how each deodorant performed, where they rank on the sweatiest editor's sweat-o-meter, and which one effectively beat *all* the heat.
