Want a natural deodorant that truly works, and that you'll be proud to make part of your routine because it's been ethically crafted in Canada, using only clean, wholesome ingredients? Try Routine natural deodorant cream.

Product Notes:

This all-natural line was developed by two sisters in Calgary, who hire locally, exercise ethical practices (such as buying the beeswax from a local farm), and use part of their profits to support causes. Routine deodorant creams are scented with pure essential oils and organic flavor oils (except for one formula which is completely unscented).

Unlike conventional deodorant sticks, these are De-Odor Creams: direct application ensures they actually get placed where needed.

Several of these deodorants use aluminum-free baking soda as the main deodorizer in conjunction with coconut oil (a natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal agent), in a Clay and Beeswax medium, with essential oils added for fragrance. But since Baking Soda is alkaline and some may be a bit sensitive to that, four types use food-grade magnesium instead, which can have the added benefit of relaxing the nearby muscles.

And since some may want a vegan product, some types do not use beeswax, while others may prefer that there be no clay, while others (such as pregnant or breastfeeding women) may prefer that there be no added scent at all, or that there only be a very limited amount of essential oils.

In the ordering menu above, the default is the With Baking Soda, Clay & Beeswax formula with Essential Oils, if there are no details in brackets immediately after the name. Otherwise, exclusions to those default ingredients are listed; or, in the case of the Superstar and Moon Sisters formulations (which have some baking soda for added deodorizing, but not enough to irritate most sensitive skinned people), three additions are listed: Charcoal to detoxify, Magnesium to relax the armpits to reduce stress-induced sweats, and Prebiotics keep the skin healthy.

Information About Each Type

A Girl Named Sue: This is a variation on their classic clay and beeswax formula; for those who may be sensitive to baking soda, it uses just 1/5th as much of that as in their original formula, substituting magnesium for the rest (please see next entry about that). This may be more Janie than Johnny Cash; it "smells like raspberry, sage and the open road in a pink Cadillac."

Blackberry Betty: This is one of the Baking Soda Free varieties designed for those with Extra Sensitive skin featuring topical food-grade magnesium as the main odor-eater, instead, so it may need reapplication, but it can also be applied to cuts, scrapes, and wherever else you need external calming or deodorizing. Smelling of blackberries, it evokes fond summer memories like being on a picnic or going rollerskating or cycling with your Walkman on.

Bonita Applebom: This type is formulated with Routine's standard triumvirate: Baking Soda, Kaolin Clay, and Beeswax, to effectively absorb odors, absorb sweat, and stay the same consistency even in different temperatures. It's scented with a combination of apples and fragrant spices, reminding its originators of someone going about snapping their bubble gum with swagger.

Bonnie n' Clyde (Unscented): This product's originators describe Bonnie n' Clyde as "an unscented beeswax formula for leaving the scene without a trace, in high fashion." It does not contain kaolin clay (which can give some of the other types a soft, earthy scent) and doesn't use essential oils. This formula is great for those who simply prefer unscented products, as well as for pregnant and breastfeeding women looking to avoid applying essential oils topically.

Cat Lady: This is a VEGAN formulation (which doesn't use any beeswax, like the others), with plenty of magnesium, and less baking soda than most types. It smells like a pineapple upside-down cake.

Like a Boss (Clay & Beeswax): This is Routine's strongest formula - it uses clay to help absorb sweat, beeswax to keep the product very creamy, and its scent is a combination of geranium, rosemary, and mandarin.

Lucy in the Sky (Vegan formula): This is a vegan formula (without the beeswax which features in most of the other types); it smells like lavender and patchouli (and barefoot dancing at an outdoor music festival).

Maggie's Citrus Farm (Clay Free): This deodorant cream has a very pleasant smell -- like orange popsicles! -- not only due to its citrus ingredients, but also because it doesn't contain clay (which contributes to a more earthy scent in some other formulas). Maggie's Citrus Farm incorporates beeswax, which acts as natural stabilizer to keep it at the same consistency all year round.

Opened jar of Routine Moon Sisters Natural Deodorant Cream

Moon Sisters(With Magnesium, Activated Charcoal & Prebiotics): Enjoy this blend of neroli and roses to evoke the nostalgia of a late summer swim in the moonlight with your sisters or girlfriends -- with added activated charcoal to detoxify; magnesium to relax the armpits, to help reduce stress sweats; and prebiotics keep your skin healthy.

Napoleon's Dynamite also uses the three Baking Soda, Clay, and Beeswax pillars to absorb sweat and odors and maintain consistency, but this one is pitched more for men than any of the others, since it uses sandalwood and black pepper (the original old spice) scents some men would be more comfortable, plus bergamot, a more citrusy, scent, which those around you may find appealing.

Sexy Sadie (Extra Sensitive - Baking Soda Free; Vegan, No Beeswax): Sexy Sadie uses clay, which naturally absorbs sweat, and smells of ylang ylang, orange, and cinnamon. This formula is vegan, it doesn't contain beeswax. Without beeswax as a stabilizer - this formula's consistency may vary with temperature changes (becoming quite soft when it's warm, harder when it's cold), although that will not impede its effectiveness.

Superstar (With Magnesium, Activated Charcoal & Prebiotics): As the name implies, this one has it all -- and then some. This is one of the types which contains topical magnesium, both to absorb odours and to relax the muscles in the armpits, which may reduce stress-induced sweating (such as during business presentations or other types of public speaking). But it also includes some baking soda, for added deodorizing and to increase its longevity - but just enough to do that, without causing irritation in most sensitive-skinned people. It also contains prebiotics, to keep your skin healthy (to nourish the beneficial bacteria on the surface of the skin which defend against redness, inflammation and infection, and which may also help crowd out the ones causing odour). And it features a very interesting blend of scents -- black pepper, cardamom, tonka bean, vanilla bourbon, and vetiver -- which a user describes as adding up to an amazing cologne.

Sweet Jane (Scented with Flavour Oils): Sweet Jane starts with the same base formula featuring safe and effective aluminum-free baking soda to absorb odors and Kaolin Clay to absorb perspiration, but is scented with natural and organic flavour oils (to smell like vanilla and pears), so it's safer for pregnant and breastfeeding women to use than the ones scented with essential oils.

The Curator (Extra Sensitive - Baking Soda Free): For those with extra sensitive skin who've found that baking soda-based deodorants can cause irritation, this magnesium-based formula works just as well. The Curator smells like a combination of cocoa and eucalyptus.
