How to Use

We recommend using a spatula to remove the deodorant from the jar then wipe onto your fingers. Soften the deodorant between fingers and rub gently into the armpit area, onto clean and dry skin.

We don't advise using the spatula to rub the deodorant into your armpit area.

No Palm Oil

Many skincare products list palm oil, or its derivatives, in their ingredients but we choose not to use it in any form in ours, due to its negative impact on the environment, habitat, animals and eco-systems.

There’s hardly a day goes by without reading in the press about deforestation for palm oil production and the fact that the very existence of orangutans is threatened because of this.

Many ingredients used in skincare include a derivative of palm oil, and it’s not always obvious that it’s been used. For example, some emulsifiers are sourced from either palm oil or coconut and the manufacturer of the emulsifier may not differentiate the source. We can confirm that no palm oil or derivatives of palm oil are used in any of our products.

FAQs

What’s the difference between anti-perspirant and deodorant?
The purpose of anti-perspirants are to reduce sweating (and therefore odor) and use aluminum-based compounds to temporarily plug pores to create a barrier to stop you sweating through your ducts.

Whereas deodorants allow your body to perform its natural sweating function, but the deodorant inhibits odor by preventing bacteria building up.

Deodorants are made to cover any smell with a fragrance to keep you smelling fresh.

Why should I use a natural deodorant?
Some people tend to prefer natural deodorants as they can be kinder for skin, especially those with sensitive skin.

Is it suitable for sensitive skin?
Yes, our deodorant has been dermatologically approved for sensitive skin.

What is micro silver?
It is a special form of pure silver. Silver acts as an antibacterial and antimicrobial material which helps to kill bacteria. Bacteria on our skin is what produces body odors and so by having the silver in our deodorant it neutralizes the bacteria, eliminating any unwanted smells.

Does your deodorant contain aluminum?
No, we do not use any aluminum in the formulation of our deodorant.

Will there be a transition period when switching to your deodorant?
Similar to when you start a new skincare routine, changing your routine with what you use on your armpits can mean that you go through a transition period whilst your body adapts to new ingredients. Although not everyone may experience a transition period, we’re all different! There is no definite timeframe for this transition, and depends on your skin, and your habits.

Is it safe to use whilst pregnant?
Yes, it is.

Will the micro silver be absorbed into the body?
The micro silver is not absorbed into the body. It stays on the first layer of the skin (the epidermis) doing its job of preventing odor by neutralizing the bacteria on your skin.

When/how often should I apply the deodorant?
Fresh out of the shower, clean pits are happy pits when paired with our deodorant. Feel good, smell good. As we all are different it depends on how much you sweat. For a medium sweat, you’ll find that once a day in the morning on clean skin will cover you. Use it before starting the day or any physical exercise.

Is it suitable for kids/teenagers?
Y
es, our deodorant has been formulated for anyone and everyone to use.

Will it stain my clothes?
No it won’t, just use a thin layer of our deodorant. Say goodbye to those funny pit stains on your tops caused by antiperspirants!

Can I apply the deodorant after shaving?
Our deodorant is suitable for sensitive skin, and we know the skin on our armpits is very delicate and sensitive. When we shave it can scrape the skin and cause irritation and applying product onto this could lead to further irritation. If you find that applying our deodorant straight after shaving causes your armpits to become sore or irritated, it may be best for you to wait a few hours to let you skin calm down before applying.

How much deodorant should I use?
All you need is a thin layer of our deodorant for it to do its job. Avoid applying too much as it may not all sink into your skin and may transfer to your clothes.

Does the Spatula come with the deodorant?
You can either purchase these together or individually.

Does your deodorant contain baking soda?
Yes, our deodorant does contain sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) we use it as it helps to protect and fight against odor.

Do you use micro plastic beads in your products?

No, we don’t use micro plastic beads in our products.

Micro plastic beads have been banned from the cosmetic industry since 2018.

Silica Dimethyl Silylate, which is in our Deodorant, is a grade of synthetic silica used to stabilise the product and to bring a unique sensorial profile. This is not from plastic origin at all and silica are not insoluble beads. A synthetic ingredient does not mean that it is from plastic.

We will never use any ingredients from plastic in our products as they are banned and obviously, they would not follow the sustainable and green values of the Lucy Bee brand.

Does your deodorant actually work?
Yes, it does! Our deodorant melts into the skin with ease and doesn’t leave you with a sticky feeling after application.

Did you know that sweat doesn’t smell? It's when it comes into contact with the bacteria on our skin which is when the odor happens. Our deodorant contains micro silver which is a long term antibacterial and antimicrobial agent which neutralizes bacteria, meaning that the smell can’t develop. We also use sodium bicarbonate which helps to protect and fight against odor too.

We use coconut oil and shea butter to nourish, soften and soothe delicate underarm skin. We are all different, and we all sweat different amounts, so it’s best to find out what works for you.

How can I get the most out of your natural deodorant?
As odor is caused by the mixing of sweat with the bacteria on our skin, it's important to make sure that you have regular showers or baths, and using a natural soap is one way to keep your skin clean. After intense sweating or after exercising, by having a shower and washing away the sweat from your skin, it means that the bacteria can’t mix with it to create an odor. After showering, you can apply deodorant, just make sure that your armpits are dry. You can also reapply deodorant and use it as needed through the day.

Lovely product but just not for me

I really wanted to like this product, as I do love the Lucy Bee skin care including soaps and face range, and I have for years been searching for a deodorant that is kind to my skin, ethical and doesn't cause me to have rashes due to my sensitive skin. However I just can't get on with this deodorant and I have gone through 2 jars since February to make sure my body is used to it
(I read it can take a while so wanted to give it fair chance). It does smell so good, and I don't have any problems with the application, and the consistency is nice as it does just melt. I work 12 hours as a veterinary nurse and I do work up a sweat, I feel that with Lucy bee I sweat more, and smell bad, which I've never had a problem with before - and I am now very aware and conscious of this. I am pretty sure it's just me it doesn't work for, and I will continue to use her skin care range and support Lucy Bee. I've given a 3 star based on how I found it, but I would definitely recommend anyone trying it. My armpits feel nicer using it, and it has not caused rashes or uncomfortable dryness as experienced with other deodorants.

Hi Sarah, thank you for your feedback. We are sorry this product is not for you, but hope you continue to enjoy other Lucy Bee products in the future. Many thanks for your comments, Rian

Great product

I have tried a few products like this and the texture and quality is never quite right however this one I love! Like any natural product I would say it takes a week or so for the body to get used to it but so far for me it works! It also smells great and doesn’t leave white marks. I Would highly recommend anyone wanting to move towards natural products to give this a try!

Hi Tara, we are so pleased that you enjoy using the Lucy Bee natural deodorant. Thank you for your review, and for recommending! Rian

I love this ❤️

I bought this because I’m looking for a natural deodorant and off the back of someone that complained about it having never tried it. You can’t review a product you haven’t tried and give it a bad rating, in my humble opinion.

I’m impressed! I’m a fitness professional so my deodorant has to stand up to the test or lots of movement and it needs to last, which this has. I absolutely love the smell of it (which was a critic of the review I read), it’s subtle refreshing and I love the gentle scent you get when moving about. It’s a 10/10 from me!

No skin irritation on my sensitive skin either!

Just one thing, I’d love a little wooden spatula to be included for ease of getting the product out (I did manage to find something to use at home).

Natural deodorant

I wasn’t sure about this product, would it work? I decided I would give it ago and ordered one. I was so impressed, I use it everyday even doing exercise, gardening etc and it works really well. Also it doesn’t irritate my skin, I love it 🥰 and I’ve ordered it again. Thank you Lucy Bee.

Thank you Karen, we are so pleased to hear how much you enjoy using the Lucy Bee natural deodorant. It is fantastic to hear you are feeling fresh after exercising and gardening. I love the soft texture and the light fragrance. Thank you for sharing your feedback, and for your support. Rian

Another Excellent product

The texture, smell and performance of this deodorant is great. Best ethical, natural deodorant I've used. Wish I'd bought the bamboo spatula though.
Love the ethos of this company too. Another product that I will be getting again.

Thank you for sharing your 5* feedback, Sarah. We are so happy that you enjoy using our natural deodorant, and the cream-to-powder texture. We produce effective products whilst always being as ethical and environmentally-friendly as we possibly can. Thank you for your support, Rian

Converted!

Was really pleasantly surprised with this deodorant, granted it's the first natural one I've used but I can't rate it highly enough. I've been using for a couple of months now, it look my body a few days to get used to it but really pleased with the results. Goes on really easily and has a nice fruity scent, no stinging when you apply after shaving. Works really well for me and even passes the test after a hardcore workout. Well and truly converted, just another fab LucyBee product that I am now addicted to! :)

Thank you for sharing your feedback, Laura. It is wonderful to hear how much you are enjoying the Natural Deodorant, and that you are still fresh after a workout! I agree, the cream to powder texture melts into the skin, and the citrus scent is so refreshing. Thank you for your review, Rian

I really wanted to like it!

I love the brand's ethical approach and really wanted to fall in love with this deodorant, but it just doesn't quite do the job for me unfortunately. I like the smell when I apply it, and even though it leaves white marks on my clothes it's not the oily kind I've had with other natural deodorants in the past and it washes off fine. But as soon as I sweat a little bit I just smell at the end of the day (and I don't naturally smell very much in the first place), no matter how much product I apply, which also means I'm using it pretty quickly because of putting more on to try and make it more effective. It's a shame, I wish I could have left a more enthusiastic review!

Thank you for your feedback, Johanna. I'm very sorry to hear that our natural deodorant is not for you. Our deodorant contains micro silver which is a long term antibacterial and antimicrobial agent which neutralises bacteria, meaning that underarm odour can’t develop. We also use sodium bicarbonate which helps to protect and fight against odour too. Something to consider is that just like when you start a new skincare routine, by changing your routine and what you are using on your armpits can mean that your body needs to adapt to the new ingredients in your deodorant. There’s no set time limit for this transition period, and you may experience sweating more than you are used to. We always recommend applying the Deodorant to armpits that are clean and completely dry. Generally a large pea sized amount is about right, a thin layer. I hope you give the deodorant another try, but if it is still not for you I hope you enjoy other Lucy Bee products in the future. Thank you for your feedback, Rian

Deodorant

Took me a day to get used to it. I do like it. Nice subtle smell, did last longer than I had expected. I like it and would use it again. Pleased that I have chosen a chemical free alternative. It also doesnt leave white marks which all other deodorant do. Very happy to keep using this product.

Thank you Salma, I am so pleased that you enjoy wearing the Lucy Bee Natural Deodorant. The cream-to-powder balm melts into the skin, with no sticky feeling. The fresh scent is from citrus essential oils, and as you say it does not leave white marks. Our deodorant is Vegan, Cruelty Free and all packaging is fully recyclable: Thank you for sharing your feedback, Rian

Fab for my pits

In an effort to stop using spray deodorants I’d tried a few but never really found anything that worked. Then along came Lucy Bee, a deodorant that smells great, is kind to my skin, the environment & animals. All boxes ticked.
There was a small transition period from my old deodorant but it didn’t last long & it wasn’t that bad.
If you want to move to a kinder deodorant I highly recommend switching to this one. Oh and another bonus - none of those annoying white marks on your black tops.
Another brilliant product from Lucy Bee.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful feedback! It is fantastic to hear how much you are not only enjoying our natural deodorant, but the Lucy Bee core values of being ethical and environmentally friendly too! I agree, it is so great knowing that you are being kind to your skin with fantastic products, as well as being kind to the environment. Thank you for your review, Rian

Smells lovely

I quite like applying deodorant as a balm as opposed to a roll-on stick or spray, it's quite soothing. It also smells lovely and keeps me smelling nice for the day. It doesn't stop me stinking after a workout or if I've missed a shower, unfortunately, but I don't think any product short of a miracle could. Anyway, it's a lovely product and having to maintain healthy hygiene habits is small sacrifice to make when you think about how much better this product is for the environment compared to what I was using before.
I will be purchasing again when I run out and I recommend anyone to give it a go!

Hi Megan, thank you very much for your feedback. It is great to hear that you are enjoying our Natural Deodorant, and it's fresh citrus scent. The deodorant works best on freshly washed armpits, as there is no residual sweat and bacteria on the skin. If you wish as well, before a workout you can apply a bit more of the deodorant, the micro silver works to neutralise the bacteria on the skin that causes sweat to smell, and the sodium bicarbonate fights and prevents odour. Thank you for your review, Rian
