• Sustainable Deodorant Alternatives

    If you are on the search for a sustainable deodorant, then look no further than this post. I will be sharing with you my favourite sustainable deodorants, some of which have been tried and tested. It’s all about trying them out and seeing which ones work best for you. Some didn’t agree with me and others made an instant impact. I wasn’t keen on stick deodorants before I switched to Wild, but now I can’t stop using them and they have so many scents to choose from.

    It took me a little bit of research into which ones would be best to use and the jump from my favourite which was Sure took a bit of time. I had been using Sure deodorant for as long as I can remember and it worked perfectly for me. But until I wanted to change things in my life and start using cruelty free and ethically made products, it was time to stop using them for good.

    While some sustainable changes might not be easy on the bank balance to start with, actually over time they work out a whole lot cheaper and better than non sustainable options. I noticed this when I finally made the switch to washable period pads. It has saved me so much money over the months that I don’t have to keep buying bulk packets of them, instead I’m only spending money on the pain killers I need every month.

    Wild Deodorant

    Wild Deodorant is the one I currently use and have been loving for a few years now. You can buy your case (which come in a variety of colours and also personalise it also) and then monthly refills of whichever scents you’d like. They bring out monthly specials especially over Autumn and Christmas but also throughout the year too. They have scents and formulas for sensitive skin as well.

    I have a purple and a green case – one is in my handbag and the other I use when at home. I have several refills which I keep in my OneNine5 x Wild pouch including Watermelon Spritz (a summer special), Lavender Haze, Fresh Cotton & Sea Salt, Orange & Neroli and Coconut & Vanilla.

    Wild Deodorant’s pricing are:
    Deodorant refills – £6 each or £5 each if you have a subscription
    Cases – £10
    Case personalisation – £5
    Soap trios – £12
    They also do case and refill bundles starting from £15.

    Salt Of The Earth

    Salt Of The Earth is the deodorant I was using that was better for the planet after using Sure for many many years and before I switched to Wild. They are spray deodorants but are made of natural ingredients and have some lovely scents. Their deodorant also comes in stick form as well. My favourite scent of theirs was Lavender & Vanilla. When I was using them, their deodorants didn’t come with refills but now they have added refills to their products list so you can refill both your stick and spray deodorants. From what I remember they were a little pricey as I used to get them from my local pharmacy but they did last quite a long time.

    On the Salt Of The Earth website their prices are:
    Spray deodorant – £5.99
    Spray deodorant refill 500ml – £22.49
    Spray deodorant refill (unscented) 1 litre – £29.99
    Spray deodorant refill (unscented) 500ml – £15.99
    Spray deodorant (unscented) – £5.99
    Roll on deodorant – £5.49
    Roll on deodorant (unscented) – £3.99
    Stick deodorant refill – £8.90
    Stick deodorant – £9.99
    Crystal deodorant – £4.85
    Deodorant balm – £8.99

    They also sell foaming hand wash and refills too.


    LUSH is definitely a go to for someone who wants to become more sustainable and ethically friendly. It is quite easy to transition into LUSH as they have so many products to choose from and make it really simple to find the right product for you especially if you are a beginner. They were the first I tried when I wanted to try ou shampoo and conditioner bars until I knew what I was after and found other brands to try.

    LUSH has two types of deodorants to try which are dusting power and deodorant bars. I’ve never tried the dusting power as I feel like it will be quite messy, especially if you are in a rush so I’ve always stuck to solid deodorants.

    LUSH’s prices are:
    Dusting Power – £10
    Solid Deodorant Bar – £7.50

    Let me know which deodorant you’d like to try in the comments.
