Reviews For Fair Trade Coconut Oil Deodorant Balm, Lavender
Based on 32 Reviews
Pricey but great!
Best all natural deodorant ever! Great smell and such a creamy little pot. Works well. Love that it comes in a glass container too. Losses one star due to price...double over what I was paying before for store bought regular brand...but trying to switch over to a less toxic environment and figure that my body is the best place to start...going to try the other scents too.
I simply adore this balm!
Simply Fair Fair Trade Coconut Oil Deodorant Balm- Lavender smells clean and lovely and makes my armpits happy. It isn't what you wear doing yardwork nor doing any heavy duty outdoors in TX summer heat, but it is lovely after a shower before bed or if you're going out to eat (in A/C). And it is NONtoxic! I will get more if it's ever restocked. :-)

The best natural deodorant I've ever used. Bonus: the price beats the others. It is now my "go to" brand.
This product is amazing..i did a high intensity hour on the stairmaster and smelled great...WOW
I have been looking for a natural product, this is great. It is a bit messy to use; I will order again!
I have tried a lot of natural deodorants and this one works fantastic!
It doesn't stain clothing and leaves me dry. I think the one key to all natural deodorants is that you must reapply.
best deodorant ever!
This is the first deodorant I've used that actually keeps me dry and smelling great all day! So glad I tried it...I'll use it forever!
This is honestly the best, most effective deodarant I've ever used
I wanted to move away from using traditional antiperspirants and from what I was reading online, I was anticipating trying several brands before finding something that worked. However, this one and the other that I purchased work great! The lavender smells great (could last a bit longer, but hey..at least I don't smell like BO) and it's super smooth. No irritation at all, which was also something I struggled with, using my old deodorant, especially after shaving. All in all, I love it!
Love this stuff!
So incredibly happy to find a super clean, fair trade deodorant that works!
Also, i saw some of the other reviews and wanted to chime in... I too had a rash when I first started using this product so I reached out to the company. They told me that this will sometimes happen when you first switch to natural deodorants with higher baking soda content. They recommended I stop using the product until the rash cleared up and then try again.
I did this and waited until the rash was totally gone then I started using the product again and IT WORKED PERFECTLY. No more rash! The way it was explained to me is that there is an adjustment period where the body acclimates and then you are fine. Ever since then the product works amazingly well and no further issues. Yay!

Best natural deoderant
This deoderant works great for me! It is the best all-natural type that I've tried and keeps me smelling good all day. I will but again.
Works, but gave me a rash!
I really liked the smell of this, and after I got over the awkwardness of application, I think it really does work well at blocking odor. Unfortunately, it gave me a rash, so I had to stop using it. I will also say, my skin is usually pretty resilient and puts up with a lot. It did NOT like this stuff. And so the search continues...
This product came free with one of my orders. I love it! A little bit goes a long way. Soaks in quickly. No residue on my clothing. Keeps me dry and odor free.
I tend to sweat a lot, and this stops most if not all sweat, and I certainly don't smell at all. It is a thicker substance but blends it wonderfully. I can have some irritation from the baking soda in it (mild skin redness) but it's not painful, and I am willing to deal with that for a natural deodorant that works this perfectly.
Wanted to love it also
Saw another review about someone that got a rash. Same thing happened to me and I was in disbelief because I definitely don't have sensitive skin. Asked a medical professional and they said it had to do with the baking soda in it. Now I'm on the hunt for a good natural baking soda free deodorant. I was really bummed because most natural deodorant doesn't help with smell for me but this product did.
I really love this product, but...
Unfortunately, it didn't like me after a few days of use. I love the natural ingredients (such a short list plus I know what everything is!), great scent and the easy application. The trouble is that after 3 days of using the balm, just a pea sized amount, my armpits turned pink, the skin irritated and shiny. I stopped use and after two days it all cleared up. I may restart it and do a trial run of every other day use to see if the irritation returns. I am not sure what is causing the reaction since everything in the balm is pretty harmless. Maybe my armpits don't like lavender? But I think everyone should be cautious when trying out a new product.
I didn't care for this one too much.
After using for about 2 weeks, I still worry if I'm not going to be fresh enough, but I should stop worrying because this is the best natural deodorant I've tried. For me, it lasts about 12 hours. If I don't reapply or shower before bed I'm not as fresh in the morning. The scent is subtle but I'm not in love with it.
I love this deodorant. I normally make my own but this one is really good. Sometimes I only have to use it every other day. It lasts that long. And yes I take a shower everyday. :) And it still lasts. :)
Liked this product
I think this goes on well and smells nice. Not too greasy. Hope it gets back in stock soon!
Didn't work for me.
Not easy to apply and didn't end up working for me. I wanted to like it but it didn't keep me dry or smelling fresh...
This is a fantastic product!! I was very disappointed that other natural products weren't cuttin' it, but this one really works!! After a full work day + workout, this deodorant prevents unpleasant odor. The balm container and application take some getting used to, but it's well worth it for such an effective product. It won't prevent you from sweating, but it will prevent you from stinking :)
This came as a free gift I would have never ordered because I have allergy to lavender
- Katherine Roiley
It works. I didn't except it to. The scent is not very strong. I too wish it was a stick but the balm is smooth and easy enough to apply. Doesn't leave white on clothes which I was concerned about. My skin is fine with the baking soda, so gratefully it doesn't cause a rash in myself. Curious to see how long the jar lasts.
Great but not Perfect
I think this works very well compared to other natural deodorants. It actually lives up to its promises and keeps working throughout the day. I will continue to purchase it when I run out. That said, I don't love the smell so I rub in some of this and then top it off with a swipe of Toms of Maine Apricot for it's lovely scent and I'm good to go all day!
Great always wanted to stop using antiperspirants
- Hiawatha Blunt
This balm work really well. I can garden in the hot Florida sun and I still do not stink. I have been using it for a few weeks now and it has impressed me. I will buy this item again. Great alternative to store brands.
It works for me! Love the lavander smell.
This deodorant works really well! I have tried other natural deodorants and this is by far the best one!
I've been using it for a week now, and I love it! Wish it came in a different bottle for easier application, but love the product!
I really wanted to love it!
I have been searching high and low for an effective & safe deodorant and I really wanted it to be this one! The reviews on this line made me think this was going to be a great fit. I love the ingredients too! The balm applies really easy and feels great on your skin- however it gave me a really bad, painful rash (which got worse when I sweat/ during a workout) that lasted for days (it was almost acne- like)I thought maybe it was a fluke and I gave it another shot and had the same experience. I don't consider myself to have sensitive skin either. I'm glad this works for some but this most definitely did not work for me!
Finally a natural deodorant that works! Even after my heated yoga practice, I still don't stink. LOVE IT!
