5 Aluminum-Free Deodorants We Love and That Actually Work

Have you ever paid attention to the ingredients in your deodorant?

We've been using aluminum-free deodorant for years, and it has proven to be super beneficial. While a lot of people think deodorant with aluminum works better (at least in terms of stopping you from sweating,) it's actually hurting you in the long run. From rashes to itchiness, irritation and more, aluminum can be pretty toxic for your skin.

Switching over to aluminum-free deodorant is no easy feat. It takes a while for your body to get used to it, and you might feel a bit stinky for the first few months. But trust us when we say it is well worth it. Feel like hopping on the aluminum-free deodorant train? Look below for a list of five of our absolute favorites.

Kopari Aluminum-Free Deodorant: $14

Kopari is a coconut-based brand that we've loved for years, and this deodorant is a big part of it! This features a sweet coconut milk scent and is full of plant-based ingredients and no aluminum or baking soda. Not only will your pits feel smooth and soft, but the clear formula will leave you smelling fresh and clean all day long, without leaving a white or sticky residue.
