Are natural deodorants suitable for sensitive skin?

Most natural deodorants are more gentle than their traditional aluminum-containing counterparts.

The one exception is some natural ingredients, like baking soda, can actually be too harsh for those with sensitive skin.

If you have sensitive skin, opt for brands that use ingredients such as arrowroot instead of baking soda as it is much gentler on the skin.

Look for formulas with moisturizing ingredients as well like coconut oil or shea butter. Additionally, many natural deodorant brands have a regular and a sensitive formula for just these occasions.

Are natural deodorants ever not vegan?

Some brands do occasionally contain animal ingredients, most commonly beeswax. However, it is very easy to find brands that are 100% vegan.
