I have experimented before with natural deodorants as I do worry about the effects of the ingredients of mass market antiperspirants. I have never been very satisfied with the level of deodorant protection they provide. My most positive experience thus far has been my most recent with Lavinila The Healthy Deodorant.
For years, choosing a natural deodorant has meant sacrificing efficacy and luxury. Between the wet, sticky texture and limited odor protection, natural deodorants rarely live up to their name. Now, Lavanila Laboratories introduces The Healthy Deodorant, a powerful natural deodorant that delivers superior odor protection and vitamin-rich nourishment without the use of commonly feared harsh chemicals. Freshly scented with Lavanila’s signature essential oil blends, The Healthy Deodorant uses a breakthrough, clinical strength formula that‘s as safe as it is effective.

What makes the Lavanila The Healthy Deodorant healthy? Medical reports document the accumulation of commonly used chemicals in the body. Traditional deodorants may contain ingredients including Aluminum, Propylene Glycol and Parabens that could potentially absorb into the delicate underarm area, a gateway to the infection-fighting lymphatic system. The Healthy Deodorant is a 100% Healthy solution. Completely free of Aluminum, Parabens, Propylene Glycol, Talc, Phthalates and Triclosan, it’s a safe and effective way to fight odor. The multi-tasking formula uses a health-promoting beta-glucan technology packed with anti-oxidants, active botanicals and essential oils to not only fight odor, but condition, soothe and nourish the skin.
The key ingredients are:
- Beta Glucan Technology: Nourishes & Protects. This multi-tasking technology blends the health-promoting powers of beta glucan (a skin saving polysaccharide) with powerful anti-oxidants, active botanicals and antibacterial agents to effectively fight odor while nourishing and protecting the delicate underarm area.
- Goji Berry: Nourishes & Calms. One of the most powerful anti-oxidants on earth and one of Lavanila’s signature ingredients, Goji Berry contains 21 essential minerals, 18 amino acids and 500 times the Vitamin C of an orange for effective nourishment and anti-inflammatory protection of the underarm area.
- Japanese Honeysuckle: Preserves & Soothes. This effective natural preservative also acts as an antibacterial & anti-inflammatory agent.
- Propanediol: Luxurious Texture & Feel. New in deodorant application, this corn-derived, 100% natural and 100% renewably sourced ingredient delivers a luxurious and smooth application without irritation. Propanediol is a healthy alternative to Propylene Glycol in petroleum-based deodorants and vegetable glycerin in existing natural deodorants.
- Lichen, Lemon and Tea Tree Oils: Anti-bacterial. These non-irritating, pure plant extracts provide long-lasting protection by effectively preventing the growth of odor-causing bacteria.
- Aloe Vera: Calms & Soothes. One of nature’s most effective remedies for soothing and hydrating skin. Perfect for freshly shaved skin.
- Vanilla Passion Fruit (NEW!): Essential oils of passion fruit and fresh peach nectar creates a magnetic allure.
- Vanilla Lavender: Essential oils of Spanish lavender and soft vanilla keep you clean and fresh.
- Pure Vanilla: Essential oils of warm vanilla and soft freesia petals are natural, yet clean.
- Vanilla Grapefruit: Essential oils of crisp grapefruit and lime leave your senses fresh and strong.
- Vanilla Coconut: Essential oils of tropical coconut and bright tiare flower are exotic and fresh.
The thing to remember about natural deodorants is that they are just that. Deodorants. They are not antiperspirants. I wish I felt confident enough to wear only a healthy deodorant such as the one from Lavanila. I still wear traditional antiperspirants when I am going out somewhere. I have been absolutely loving the Lavanila The Healthy Deodorant for around the house. Especially for when I shower in the evenings. I’ve always hated putting chemical deodorants on before bed when it seemed so unnecessary. Putting on The Healthy Deodorant puts my mind at ease and is also a relaxing and enjoyable experience in itself. It feels so soft going on and makes the delicate skin of my underarms feel nourished and smooth. It also offers the most delightful and addicting cooling sensation when it is applied. I am totally hooked on it.
