Are you looking for a clean version of deo? Look no further, we've brought you a list with the top seven aluminum-free deodorants for odor-free underarms.


Before starting scrolling the list, you should know one thing first: there's no such thing as an aluminum-free deodorant because they're all aluminum-free. But what the heck that means?

The thing is, antiperspirants inhibit the body's natural process of releasing sweat by using their active ingredient, aluminum salts. On the other hand, natural deodorants are generally made without aluminum. So with natural deodorant, you still sweat but won't smell sour. That said, we've rounded up the best natural deodorants free from aluminum.

Native Deodorant


Native deodorant won the 2020 and 2021 Allure Readers' Choice Awards. The product -- that's also paraben-free -- is a mixture of coconut oil, tapioca starch, and antioxidants; this deodorant keeps you dry all day long. In addition, the brand offers other scents such as cucumber and mint, lavender and rose, eucalyptus and mint.

Megababe Rosypits Daily Deodorant


Megababe is cult's favorite and not by chance -- with a long list of natural ingredients such as sage, green tea, and corn starch, the rose-scented deo prevents bacteria growth, soothes dry skin, and prevents blisters. It's also free of alcohol and aluminum.
