Cheat Sheet | Scent Your Own Deodorant Cream

Buckle up. Unscented Deodorant Cream is finally here, and it has a few tricks up its sleeve.


This is the same formula you know and love from our Baking Soda Free Deodorant Cream line, just without the essential oils. That means that it’s the perfect pit companion for sensitive skin and noses, and also gives you total creative control over your deodorant scent. TOTAL CONTROL!


Let’s talk a bit about why this is important.


Creating an Unscented Deodorant cream and DIY scent option means we never have to create another scent in our cream ever again. No, it's not because we'd rather stay home and watch Netflix. It's because this approach means we can put fewer new products into the world. Resisting the culture of new, new, new is a tiny part of what's needed to get to a more sustainable place in our society.
We want to create options, and sometimes those options mean empowering our customers with tools and knowledge. Plus, this formula puts you in charge of how much scent you want.


Here’s how to do it.
