- If you're following us on social media, you may remember when I talked about a batch of deodorant I made, that had flecks of propolis in it. Here's a link to the post I wrote about it.
I decided to discount the remaining Coconut Deodorants from this particular batch. There is nothing wrong with it, some may have some flecks of propolis, some may not (I won't be checking each individual tin).
A safe and effective natural deodorant that works.
Virgin Coconut Oil is soothing to the skin and contains lauric acid which kills odor-causing bacteria. Arrowroot powder absorbs moisture, while aluminum free baking soda absorbs odors. The Chinese herbs used are naturally antibacterial and help to maintain adequate nourishment to the skin.
This gender neutral deodorant is terrific for men and women alike, and is a safe choice for preteens new to deodorant products.
Safe for pregnant and nursing mothers.
- To use, simply dip a clean finger into the Coconut Deodorant. Use about a pea-sized amount for each underarm. Rub evenly into clean dry skin and get on with your day.
Warmer weather note: One of the main ingredients in our Coconut Deodorant is Coconut Oil, which becomes liquid at 76 degrees. Warmer summer temperatures may cause your deodorant to soften a bit. This is normal, and can be remedied by refrigerating it for a short period of time to firm it back up.
If you experience any irritation to your skin while making the switch to our natural deodorant, please see Coconut Deodorant: Caring For Your Skin.

Making the transition to natural deodorant:
Some folks can be sensitive to deodorants containing baking soda. Some suggest that people who have used conventional antiperspirants go through a detox phase as the body is releasing the chemical build-ups. Some also suggest weaning yourself off your regular antiperspirant while you're transitioning to a more natural one. As with all skincare products, if you experience any irritation we recommend that you discontinue use. Some have found that making a gradual transition from their old antiperspirant to Sola's Coconut Deodorant helped the skin transition better.
