You all know I’ve been actively transitioning to more natural/non toxic products in my everyday life. As I run out of things I replace them with kinder alternatives. I’ve been searching for a staple natural deodorant for a while. I wrote about my love affair with Lone Body Care deodorant a while back and I do actually love them. But they aren’t available in stores. So if I’m a little absent minded and forget to order my next round, I’m SOL. I thought it’d be a good time to find a secondary staple that I can find in store.
So boom- I step foot into Target. Oh Target. You take my money on a weekly basis and make it so that I need things I never knew I needed. I digress. I didn’t expect for there to be such a vast selection. Kudos to Target and kudos to the new natural brands on the come up. I really wanted to stop teetering with various brands and get down to business. So I just copped one of everything in stock. Wasteful, possibly. But I’ve wasted more on less. So here’s a list of 8 natural deodorants that are available in Target (in no particular order).
$3.99 This is mineral active liquid roll on (also available in spray and invisible solid form) that prevents body odor providing up to 24 hour protections with no residue, staining or white marks. It’s made without aluminum chloride, chlorohydrate/zirconium, parabens, phthalates or artificial fragrance. It’s Vegan and Cruelty Free.
$7.99 An all natural deodorant manufactured without harsh chemicals or aluminum. Contains organic shea butter, organic arrowroot powder, non aluminum baking soda, organiz cocnut oil, candelilla wax, essential oils and non-gmo vitamin e. Comes in jar, stick or spray forms.
$11.99 for 24 hour protection in 2.4 oz cream jars of deodorant. Their deodorant is aluminum and baking soda free but features organic arrowroot powder, food grade magnesium hydroxide, organic coconut oil, organic jojoba oil, beeswax, organic vegetable glycerine (non-gmo & kosher) and organic essential oils.
$11.99 Native’s deodorants offer aluminum free, long lasting protection (by their standards) and goes on easy. They also have a sensitive collection for those whose pits need a little more TLC as well as lines without baking soda who aren’t into that either.

There formula is nontoxic, vegan, gluten-free and cruelty-free. Using activated chracoal, their stance is to neutralize odor not cover it up. Available in stick and jar form.
$7.99 Green Goo boasts as a high performance natural deodorant without compromise. 100% Natural Plant-Based Deodorant featuring options with and without baking soda.
$6.99 LBP is an aluminum free deodorant with plant based deodorizers used for 24 hour odor protection. This aluminum-free, dye-free, paraben-free, vegan, phthalate-free, cruelty-free, plant-based deodorant comes in recyclable canisters made from 43% recycled plastic.
Let me just say this. You get what you pay for. Some may think that $12 for deodorant is expensive. But I personally felt like the pricier ones performed a bit better to me. I courageously tested of each of them this summer (and some failed the test) and gave my official reviews of them over on youtube. So make sure you go check that out if you haven’t already. My heart and pits still belong to Lone, but I now have a back up handy for when I’m absent minded. I guess the easier thing to do would have been to put my order on autoship but that’s neither here nor there.
