Don’t Sweat It: Reasons to Make the Switch to Natural Deodorant—Plus 2 Formulas to Try

August 4, 2017

When opting for more natural skin care products, you question whether a mineral-based deodorant can be as effective as your tried-and-true antiperspirant. The answer is yes! All it takes is the right combo of ingredients, and Schmidt’s has perfected the formula. Thrive Market member Jasmine P. says it’s the best deodorant she’s ever used, and it smells so good she frequently has to resist the urge to sniff her own armpits. Really. Read on for even more surprising benefits of switching up your routine.

Animal love. The beauty industry isn’t regulated by the FDA, which means companies are still allowed to test their products on live animals. Not at Schmidt’s—this brand is certified vegan and cruelty-free.

Nothing fishy. Questionable ingredients like aluminum and phthalates are nowhere to be found in a jar or stick of this natural deodorant. Mineral-derived and plant-based ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil, jojoba oil, and arrowroot powder are at the ready to absorb wetness and neutralize odor.

Convinced? We thought so. And you’re just in time, because Schmidt’s is releasing two limited-edition scents exclusively on Thrive Market called WAVES. Plus, 5% of all sales proceeds benefit the Portland chapter of the Surfrider Foundation, a nonprofit working to protect the world’s oceans and beaches. Get ‘em while you can!

A tropical, cooling scent in a non-greasy formula that’s perfect for warm summer days. Each stick is formulated with baking soda and arrowroot powder to help you stay dry instead of aluminum, propylene glycol, parabens, or phthalates.

Everything you love about the original formula, adjusted for those with extra sensitive skin. The star ingredient is magnesium, an essential mineral that helps neutralize odor, naturally.
