After years of using Primal Pit Paste without any issues, my skin decided it no longer liked baking soda. I never developed a rash, but the color of my arm pits began to change. Not cute. I had great success with the baking-soda free scent from the same brand, and also with Schmidt’s. Wellness blogger Chelsea Williams posted on Instagram that Honestly pHresh carried a baking soda-free deodorant, so I added their name to my long list of brands to try.
I can’t remember where I was when I stumbled upon this product in-store. (I only shop at Target, Sprouts, Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods, so it had to be one of those!) The price point is comparable to other aluminum-free deodorant brands.
I was happy to read on the label that the formulation contained prebiotics, magnesium, and certified organic ingredients.
This formulation is free of aluminum, parabens and phthalates. I had no need to reapply throughout the day, and my shirts aren’t forever stained – hooray! Oh, and the most important part: yes, it works!
