Natural deodorants gets a bad rap. But the important thing to remember is, not all products are made the same. Maybe you’ve tried one or two that you picked up at the grocery store, then swore them off entirely when they didn’t hold up. But we promise, not all deodorants are created equal. In fact, we’re in the thick of making an easy how-to guide to match you up with your ideal stick, but until then, we’d like to highlight one of our favorites, the Ursa Major No B.S Deodorant Stick; Funny name, but the product is serious business.
A lot of natural and home-made deodorants have baking soda in them, which can be great for some, and really irritating for others. To combat that, our favorite Vermont-based beauty brand, Ursa Major, created their No B.S. (Baking Soda… get it?) formula to accommodate even the most sensitive pits. On top of that, it’s all-natural, unscented, and actually works really well. Plus the formula is smooth and lightweight, so it glides against your underarms and leaves a fresh finish; Probably unlike other natural deodorant brands you’ve tried which leave a sticky, wet feeling under your arms. It’s totally efficient yet works silently. We’ve also heard amazing things about the Ursa Major Hoppin Fresh Deodorant for those who like a little fragrance.
