We Tried It: 4 All-Natural Deodorant Picks To Try This Summer

See larger version here.

Deodorant is a decidedly unglamorous topic as far as beauty products go. Is it even a beauty product? I suppose it’s more of, like, a necessary hygiene product than anything. (Or not necessary, I don’t know. You do you, babes, just maybe try not to sit next to me on the subway in August.) But any deodorant I’ve ever purchased from the drugstore — your standard Secret, Dove, Mitchum, what have you — has left me less than convinced, thanks to some combination of yellowing marks (which actually are not a byproduct of sweat alone, but a reaction caused by the chemicals in most traditional deodorants) and just smelling so gross, like super-pungent fake fruits and flowers that are eventually forced to commingle with your natural scent. There’s also the fact that the aluminum in deodorant has been linked to cancer, but hasn’t everything? My interest in finding a more natural alternative may not have been driven by health reasons (I also smoke, sleep with my cell phone directly next to my head, and eat meat on average five times a week), but it was driven nonetheless! I tried these four natural deodorants over the course of a week-long New York City heat wave, which I truly believe to be the most telling test there is. Find out where to purchase these picks, after the jump…
