Is There a Difference Between All-Natural and Organic Deodorant?

We are well aware of the risks of using an antiperspirant deodorant and luckily there are many safe alternatives.  With a quick search on the internet, you will find varying degrees of deodorant brands that are categorized as natural and just a handful that are organic.  Both natural and organic deodorants ditch the harmful chemicals, such as glycol and aluminum chlorate, and use only natural, safe alternatives for ingredients.  You may find yourself wondering, “is there a difference between all natural deodorant and organic deodorant?”.


The deodorant brands that are labeled as “natural” have no actual governing body that decides what is and is not a natural deodorant.  Natural is a pretty loose term. If you read the ingredient lists on most natural deodorants, you tend to find many ingredients that you are familiar with and some that you are not.  It is also typically unclear where their ingredients are sourced from or if the ingredients really are free from harmful chemicals. Many natural deodorants tend to use baking soda in their formula as well.  It is very common for baking soda to give people rashes which is one of the biggest complaints surrounding natural deodorants.


This is where Farmpit is different from other companies.  Our formulation has patiently been through every step of the process with a USDA organic certifying body in becoming USDA Certified Organic. They have analyzed each ingredient in our formulation down to the source.  The farms and artisan suppliers that provide our ingredients have been certified through a USDA certifying body. This insures that all five ingredients in our formulation are the safest, cleanest, and most high quality.  Our sticks are easy to stand behind. Try Farmpit.

Aluminium Free

You wouldn’t wear aluminum socks, would you? So why put it in your armpits? Plus, does that stuff cause cancer? JR doesn’t think that’s very cool either way. The only aluminum he likes has domestic beer inside of it.

Paraben Free

Parabens are a group of commonly used preservatives in cosmetic products, including in deodorants. Parabens have been linked to causing infertility in men. JR definitely does not like that one bit. Let’s keep your little guys swimming hard and your pits smelling good.

Polypropylene Free

A flammable gaseous hydrocarbon C3H6 obtained by cracking petroleum hydrocarbons and used chiefly in organic synthesis. Would you put that in your pits?

Baking Soda Free

Baking Soda in deodorant is commonly known to cause rashes, itchy/dry pits, discoloration, and can even cause breakouts. Basically the alkaline properties of baking soda will have a chemical reaction with your naturally acidic skin bits. Over time this damages the skin and leaves you susceptible to sores and infections. Just more stuff that has no business being on your body
