This is a list of tried-and-true vegan deodorants that actually work to banish the stink and keep you smelling and feeling fresh and cruelty-free all day long.

Natural Vegan Deodorant at StrawberryHedgehog.com

Through careful formulation and ingredient selection, Strawberry Hedgehog has worked out a recipe for vegan deodorant that lasts up to 24 hours. Available in 3 subtle, natural scents, this deodorant comes in a small jar and can be applied with a tiny wooden spatula (included), a cotton swab, or simply your fingertips. $12 at StrawberryHedgehog.com

LaVanila, The Healthy Deodorant

Lavanila, The Healthy Deodorant, at lavanila.com

It would be downright unfair to make a list of vegan deodorants without including this one. Since it comes in a variety of vanilla-infused scents, everyone can find something they like. Although this is one of the most expensive vegan deodorant options on the market, it works as well as traditional brands and smells a heck of a lot better, so it’s worth the investment. $18 for 2 oz or $10 for 0.90 oz at Lavanila.com and in Sephora stores.

Puur Body Tonic Vegan Deodorant

Vegan Deodorant by Puur Body tonic at etsy.com

If you’re looking for a more unique scent, Puur Body Tonic is where you should head. Although not all of their deodorant products are vegan (some contain beeswax), they offer a wide variety of vegan scents including Southern Belle, Nag Champa, Lumberjack, and Gear Head. Even better, Puur offers sample sizes of their deodorants so you can try a few before you commit to a full-size product. $7 for full-size and $2 for samples at etsy.com

Wow, that’s a a lot of options! Which vegan deodorant is your favorite or which one of the above would you like to try?

    I use and like Bubble and Bee’s cream deodorants. They all smell wonderful. bubbleandbee.com

  2. Meech!

    I’m reaaaaaaally eager to see more comments from users. This is the only body product that I’m terrified to be without. I’ve got some serious “presence” without clinical-strength antiperspirant, if you know what I mean!

  3. Keya Millionie

    Another really good one is the two that North Coast Organics make. Death By Lavender and Revolver. I love them. http://www.north-coast-organics.com/

    I am partial to Kiss My Face’s Liquid Rock because it comes in an unscented variety. Due to allergies, I can’t use anything on my body that has a smell.

  6. Gina

    I make my own by mixing coconut oil, cornstarch, baking soda, and tea tree oil. it works and it cleared up a fungus i had for a long time.

  7. Sally

    Gina, can you share the recipe that you use? Thanks.

    Kiss My Face Liquid Rock (I like Sport) … has been really great for me and I’m a really active person.

    I admit though to having only only tried a handful of brands to date and actively looking for a “roll on” – I’m from Australia and we don’t really have many stick deodorants, it’s either areosol or roll ons (not gender specific either) so when I found Liquid Rock I got very excited.

    It is a much runnier formula than I am used to in a roll on (used to a creamier version) but I love it all the same!

  9. I use a lot of the products from StrawberryHedgehog.com. I have been to their small factory in Phoenix where the hand make everything … it was very cool and refreshing to see the process and know that it is all truly vegan and hand made. The deodorant is great!!!! I am a very active person and it lasts longer then any others that I have tried out…… I m a huge fan of what Strawberry Hedgehog is doing … and their beard oil is wonderful!!!

    I love my Strawberry Hedgehog Femme Fatale and I was a clinical strength deo user at one time too. I will never ever go back to putting that poison on my body again!!

    Can i purchase strawberry hedgegoh at whole foods

    • Cat

      Strawberry Hedgehog is carried in select Whole Foods stores in the Phoenix, AZ, area (since that is where they’re based). Otherwise, you’ll need to order via their website!

    If you need a good, odor-killing deodorant, try Lavilin. It’s free of aluminum and nasty chemicals, and lasts up to a week!
