Deodorant Cream


Deodorant Cream

Returns are always on us!

Size: 2 oz


  • Safe, tested and proven effective
  • All-day protection
  • Fast-absorbing, stain-free formula
Don't sweat it.

This nontoxic deodorant is beloved by bloggers, editors and pretty much everyone for a reason: It works. With frosting-like consistency, it glides on easily, absorbs quickly and protects against bacteria, wetness and odor all day. After a natural “detoxification” period, you may even notice your body produces less perspiration.

Scoop a little with finger and very gently apply to entire armpit area until completely absorbed.


Applying deodorant can be a ritual just like anything else (really)–make it a meditative moment as you apply the cream into skin close to your heart.

  • Stronger than a 300 mile summer bike ride

    Josie September 06, 2021

    I switched to this deodorant 4-5 months ago because in addition to being natural it’s also vegan & cruelty-free and I can buy it locally at Follain. Not long after making the switch, I started training for a big multi-day bike ride. Every weekend I was riding on average about 65-70 miles, culminating in 300 miles over a 4-day span, often in temperatures above 80 degrees. This deodorant never (not once!) failed on me. I would recommend it to anyone (and I have! My roommate uses it now too!).

  • Pleased with the product

    Tami O. August 18, 2021

    I have been using this product for 10 days and find it effective. I am not one works up a good sweat on a regular basis. I mowed with our trim mower for about 90 minutes yesterday and wasn’t any soggier than I was a couple of weeks ago!

    One thing I do love about this product is that it comes in a nice little glass jar that could be recycled or, better yet, repurposed. Regular deodorant or antiperspirant applicators contain several different types of plastic which makes them unusable. Plastic recycling is largely a waste of time/expense anyway because there is no market for it (though, ever hopeful, I do it anyway!). The more we can find alternatives to plastics the better off we will all be.

  • Wow! Great deoderant!

    Naomi June 15, 2021

    Me and my husabnd have beeing using Arrid Xtra Dry – Regular all of our adult lives, until, recently. I don’t know what happened, but we both started smelling bad at the same exact time. It was kind of embarrassing, but funny that we both started smelling bad! So, unfortunately, the deoderant we’ve been using for the past 40 years has changed.

    So, I’ve been looking for a new deoderant and wanting one that was natural and good for you. I decided to try this one and wow oh wow it works! From the moment I tried it it works! Amazing! So thankful, because who wants to smell bad?

    Putting it on with my fingers was a little strange, but if something works it doesn’t matter to me. Besides, I’m already used to putting it on that way. It has a scent at first, not sure what it is, maybe tea tree, but then it goes away quite quickly.

    Thanks Soapwalla, for making me smell clean and fresh! I will definitely be buying again when I start to run out! :o)

  • Not Purchased

    Lauren S. March 18, 2020

    I read the reviews and was going to purchase… until the cost of shipping popped up at $7.50. I can’t imagine the product being worth $23.50!

  • Pleasantly surprised

    Maddy February 25, 2020

    I was nervous about switching to a natural deodorant having tried before, I always ran back to Dove or Secret. This deodorant does not have a strong smell, if anything it is a ‘clean’ smell. The only thing I had to get used to was that since this is a deodorant and not an anti-perspirant like I’m used to, you still sweat. But I can confirm after going on a 5 mile hike in 70 degree weather and getting very sweaty that I did not smell at all after!

  • No at all pleased

    Monica C. February 14, 2020

    I try to regularly avoid aluminum-based deodorant, so I have tried several. This one not only didn’t work, the smell was extraordinarily strong. I will be returning to Native and QET’s natural deodorants.

  • Really nice product

    Bri September 29, 2019

    I really love this deodorant, it lasts through intense workouts, and it has good ingredients! However…the smell is a bit too strong for me. All in all a great product!

  • Love it!

    Rhonda P. July 05, 2019

    I love this deodorant!!! Smells great, easy to apply & really works! I’ll definitely be buying it again.

  • Finally found a deodorant that I love!

    Michelle B. May 27, 2019

    I’ve tried a few deodorants in the past and was content with them, but wouldn’t repurchase. This deodorant is easy to apply, smells good and works. It also doesn’t irritate my skin. I will be repurchasing this one for sure!

  • Really Works!

    Michelle May 24, 2019

    I’ve tried countless natural deodorants and this one is by far the best. Only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is because you have to use your fingers to put it on which can sometimes be a little annoying. With that said, I’ve used others you have to apply this same way and this goes on by far the smoothest and least pasty.

  • I have sensitive skin and I LOVE THIS

    Rachel S. April 29, 2019

    I have very sensitive skin, like switch my soap/shampoo and I’m in full-out hives sensitive. SO I was certainly skeptical of trying a new deodorant. I do get some irritation if I use this within a few hours after shaving so I typically shave my armpits at night and don’t apply until morning. In addition to it being natural this is THE MOST EFFECTIVE deodorant I have ever used, ever. I teach HIIT classes for hours and still smell fine. It’s quite magical, just don’t apply right after shaving.

  • Best. Deodorant. Ever.

    Morgan W. April 16, 2019

    I’ve tried so many (SO. MANY.) deodorants and this one is far any away superior to any I’ve tried. Long-lasting, great-smelling, and even slightly absorptive. As ridiculous as it sounds, I even like the cream – it takes something as mundane as applying deodorant and turns it into a little luxurious ritual.

  • Paxton K. March 05, 2019
  • Sadly, allergic

    Kelly P. February 23, 2019

    I used this for a couple weeks with no issues. It smells amazing and kept me fresh all day under normal circumstances. After a few weeks of daily use my armpits got red and sore and the skin started peeling, so I can no longer use it 🙁 found out the hard way I shouldn’t be using anything with baking soda.

  • Great deodorant!

    Melinda R. December 12, 2018

    I’ve been through 5+ deodorants this is the only one that works for me most of the time that I’ve repurchased. I didn’t give it 5 stars because I’d definitely prefer a stick – using a cream can be annoying.

  • Best Deodorant

    Stephanie S. December 09, 2018

    I have tried so many natural deodorants and this one is by far the best! Works great, smells nice, and the container lasts a long time since a little bit goes a long way.

  • Clean feeling

    Merilee M. November 26, 2018

    I have tried multiple cream deodorants, they feel too oily. This cream deodorant smells good and is not oily. It has a good combination of clean feeling and hydration.

  • First Natural Deodorant That Works for Me1

    Maria N. November 13, 2018

    I’ve tried 2 natural deodorants before and none of them worked and just left me smelling bad. This works! And it smells pretty nice. I’m blown away and very grateful that I finally found something that works!

  • It works!

    Nicole F. November 11, 2018

    Best natural deodorant on the market.

  • very happy

    Ashley October 17, 2018

    Was a bit skeptical of using a cream deodorant over a stick, but really loved this product. Works well and smells great

  • Overall Good Deodorant

    Dkm October 15, 2018

    This product glides on smoothly and prevents odor even after a long day. However, it does not stop wetness. Even though it does not work well as an antiperspirant, it does a very good job of keeping me fresh in terms of odor. The product itself has a pleasant, neutral scent. I like this deodorant and will continue to use it intermittently, along with Move by Health Junkie Jess. Move is the best natural deodorant I have found, and it stops wetness along with odor. I’m a little sensitive to the amount of baking soda in it, though, so I alternate Move with this one from Follain.

  • Smells like paint remover!

    Patricia D. October 08, 2018

    Awful smell!

  • great deodorant

    Jessica J. October 06, 2018

    love it! my boyfriend and I have BOTH been using for yrs, it works great and smells wonderful

  • The BEST natural deodorant!

    Nicole F. October 06, 2018

    I have been using this product for years. It is the best all natural deororant. Hands down.

  • Best deodorant ever!

    Joelle A. September 07, 2018

    I’ve been using natural deodorant for about two years now and have tried about six of them. This is by far the best. It goes on easily and I don’t even have to reapply during the day like I did with the others.

  • Best natural deodorant

    Jennifer O. September 05, 2018

    I absolutely loved this deodorant. I did have a problem with it that I didn’t know I had a sensitive issue with baking soda.

  • Awesome

    April S. August 01, 2018

    I’ve tried numerous natural / organic deodorants, probably over 15. None of them worked. This stuff WORKS! It’s amazing! It is better than any chemical deodorant I’ve ever used and the ingredients are good for you. I’m a sweaty girl and this lasts on hot summer days, has pleasent smell, easy to apply. I will be reordering!

  • Best natural deodorant that I have found so far!!!

    Lauren H. May 29, 2018

    I am telling everyone about this Soapwalla deodorant. I have tried Toms, Schmidt’s, Lafes….so many and none of them truly worked. I am finally pleased with something natural. I do on occasion apply it again in the afternoon. I am a Follain & Soapwalla customer for life!

  • Best natural deodorant

    Kathleen B. May 09, 2018

    I started using Soapwalla cream deodorant several years ago and it has never failed me, even during the hot, humid, DC summers. It also has the best clean fresh scent. I’ve turned so many friends on to this deodorant and they, too, quickly became addicted.

  • YES!

    Adina S. April 27, 2018

    I just bought this on a whim (I’m a fan of LaVanilla and Ursa Major’s stick deodorants) and I’m in love! You just pinch off a small piece and work it into your skin and the paste becomes powdery and blends right in! I was worried it’d look chalky on my Indian skin, but it doesn’t! I applied it right before a cardio workout and this held up! The scent isn’t overpowering and it kept me fresh and dry for the whole workout session. Definitely would purchase again!

  • Finally!

    Kim C. April 27, 2018

    I work 12 hr shifts as an RN and this deodorant works amazingly.
    I did have some minor irritation in the beginning and hyperpigmentation, both have since subsided.
    So happy to have found a safe and effective deodorant.

  • YES!

  • Works well.

    Lisa C. March 22, 2018

    I actually like this deodorant, but I won’t be getting it again. Apparently, I’m allergic to baking soda. So, I changed to the Meow deodorant in lavender, and so far, so good!

  • Works but was irritating

    Dorothy S. March 19, 2018

    This deodorant does work; I felt fresh but after a few uses irritated my skin and I was left with red bumps. I wouldn’t shave my underarms and would use lightly. since I already bought it and didn’t want to pay for shipping etc.

  • Love this stuff

    Jen F. March 16, 2018

    I’ve been using it for years now. I go between this one and their new sensitive skin lavender one (grey) and seriously, I can’t live without it.

  • FOUND: The One And Only Holy Grail

    Holly K. March 11, 2018

    This deodorant is absolutely the end all be all for natural deodorant. ….OR any deodorant for that matter. Despite being hesitant about the concept of a cream instead of a stick, as someone who has never liked deodorant this turned out to be what I was looking for.

    This deodorant smells wonderful and natural like lavender, and keeps smell away all day, no exceptions. After a long shift of work, or even after *being intimate* this deodorant still keeps me smelling fresh.
    WIll always recommend.

  • This Stuff Works

    Malin B. February 14, 2018

    I’ve been using this deodorant for 3 1/2 years. I’ve been told that I “literally smell like nothing” when I wear this. Not body odor, no fragrance, just…neutral. I can sweat for hours and it just keeps working. I’ve noticed the occasional white marks on shirts, but they usually wash out easily. If you don’t like using your hands, I’d suggest trying something else. I don’t mind it, so this is my go to.

  • Causes Rash + Irritation

    Katherine W. February 06, 2018

    I used this for about a month before I had to bail. Gave me really irritated skin, and in my opinion, didn’t work well. It also stained the pits of all of my white shirts. Would not recommend.

    • From Follain:

      Hi Katherine, I am so sorry this was irritating to your skin! This is most likely due to the baking soda in the formula as it can be irritating to sensitive skin types. I would recommend a baking soda free deodorant like the Meow Meow Tweet.

  • Works!

    Shalagh B. February 02, 2018

    I was a tad skeptical – mostly to be honest about the consistency and the fact that I was applying it to my armpits and not rubbing some sort of stick. But it works so well. I was actually surprised that it did the job. And smells great. I am a convert and will not be going back to the toxic stuff!

  • Lasts all day!

    Abigail L. January 01, 2018

    I do heated workouts and was so worried about switching to a clean deodorant, concerned it may not be able to prevent odor. This one is amazing, no reapplying necessary and smelling fresh even after sweaty workouts.

  • lightweight and dries quickly/cleanly

    Alexandria G. October 02, 2017

    smells wonderful too, better than any other deodorant i’ve used!

  • Awesome deodorant

    Zoie P. September 29, 2017

    I alternate this deodorant with meow meow tweet. The baking soda can be a little harsh so I don’t use this right after shaving. I think the baking soda help a lot with odor control. I love that it is organic too!

  • very satisfied

    Ariane A. September 28, 2017

    Often, natural deodorant, while smelling good, may not do the job of providing dry, comfortable relief. This product does!

  • Worked the best vs. other brands

    Sara N. September 28, 2017

    This natural deodorant is the one that has worked the best for me so far. Unfortunately, I don’t love scooping it out with my fingers…I don’t mind using my hands to apply deodorant, I just don’t like how the product feels on my fingers. Still searching for “the one” deodorant for me!

  • I wanted to like this so much!

    Arianna F. September 28, 2017

    This was my first ‘clean’ deodorant I had ever tried and I loved it so much. However, my skin was allergic to one of the ingredients and I had to disconnected use. I still have yet to find a deodorant that is effective as this one.

  • oh I SO wanted to love this

    Kirsten Y. September 25, 2017

    I read all of the reviews prior to purchasing, so I was prepared for all of the differences that I should expect when switching from a conventional antiperspirant. I read about the dry skin and the rashes, so I was proactive. I moisturized and used oil prior to applying. I shaved at night and applied this in the morning. I used only a tiny pea sized amount. But OMG the rash is unbearable. It’s not so much dry skin or razor burn as it is a red, swollen, bumpy (and large bumpy, not tiny like razor burn), painful, itchy rash that looks enough like a serious skin condition that I have not been able to wear a sleeveless top for the last two weeks. There have been days when it’s been so painful that I have had to just skip any product all together, and considering it’s the end of the summer, this has been awful. I will say that the scent is lovely. If you can get past the underarms-on-fire effect, this does smell amazing and prevents odor for far longer that I expected. I guess I’m about to try the Meow Meow baking soda free one now.

    • From Follain:

      Hi, Kristen! So sorry to hear the Soapwalla caused a rash! The Meow Meow Baking Soda Free Deodorant will be a great option as it is our most gentle formula and great for sensitive skin. These smell amazing as well!

  • simply the best

    Jessica S. August 30, 2017

    There is just no comparison to this product in value and results. I always struggled with finding a stick deodorant that actually worked for me and then was introduced to Soapwalla. Best deodorant out there and last so much longer than any other product I’ve tried.

    You won’t be disappointed.

  • Works well but realized I'm a stick girl

    Sarah August 02, 2017

    Works well for me and smells really really great! I wanted to love this but realized I just don’t love touching my deodorant or my armpits with my fingers, which is required w/ this potted deodorant.

  • Best Deodorant

    Sophia July 31, 2017

    Out of all the natural deodorants I’ve tried, this is by far the most effective. It lasts all day and keeps me feeling fresh. The lovely lavender scent is an added bonus.

  • In the rotation

    Allison July 28, 2017

    I alternate with this deodorant along with the Schmidts. I like this version better than the citrus – it has a subtle smell.

    Pros: I think it’s one of the best at odor control. The cream allows me to sneak it on mid-day if I need to.

    Cons:If I put it on too soon after I shower it can burn. Also – it’s a cream so in the heat it melts.

  • Be warned

    Lulu R. April 07, 2017

    Burns the heck out of my armpits and turned them brown, and sore… I stopped using it and the brown, burned layer of skin and ventualky peeled off…

    • From Follain:

      Sorry to hear this! The reaction is most likely from baking soda, which is common for irritation. Try a baking soda free version such as the Meow Meow Grapefruit Citrus Baking Soda Free Deodorant Stick!

  • Dream deodorant

    S. K. January 27, 2017

    After years of searching far and wide, finally a non-toxic deodorant that works. It is easier to apply than Meow Meow Tweet Tweet (or whatever it’s called), less gunk under your fingernails and actually effective in comparison. It barely leaves a trace on clothes. I cannot recommend this highly enough.

  • Only natural deodorant that's worked

    Megan January 20, 2017

    I was discussing my search for natural deodorants that always ended with disappointment when someone suggested this brand to me. I’ve tried sticks, crystals, other creams and nothing worked except for this product. Worth every penny, lasts and works!

  • Works like a charm

    Nick D. September 23, 2016

    This deodorant is awesome. You only need a little at a time, and the scent lasts for hours. In about two years of using it, there have been only two or three days when I have needed to reapply. What’s more, the scent works great for any gender.

  • Best working deodorant, just didn't work for me

    Gs June 10, 2016

    This deodorant, has been the best working deodorant (“clean” or “unclean”) I’ve tried to date. I honestly can’t smell myself at all. And I walk 2 miles two and from work every day with a heavy backpack and then workout. No re-application needed. It’s truly amazing.

    The problem, is that for me at least, it irritates my skin and makes my underarms look quite red. Not the best look for strapless tops which is when you want to wear this the most. I’m surprised too, since I have very resilient skin and I think I’ve never reacted to anything in the past. I’m mitigating this right now by using a different deodorant every other day and moisturizing in the evenings. It still causes my underarms to be red, but there’s not discomfort or anything.

  • Great product

    Laura June 07, 2016

    It smells really nice, and somehow keeps me relatively dry. I do have to reapply a few times during the day for maximum results. Surprisingly works very well during high-sweat workouts, if applied right before. I don’t find it irritating, and can apply it right after shaving. At first I balked at the fact it comes in a jar rather than on a stick. Then I read a review that suggested to think of it as applying any other kind of lotion as part of a routine, and then it made sense. Now it’s second nature.

  • I have a solution if it gives you a rash!

    Jessica March 09, 2016

    This is hands-down an amazing deodorant – but it does irritate your skin on occasion. A solution that I’ve used for the past 3 jars is to add a small squirt of Farmaesthetics Midnight Honey Body Oil when I first start the jar, making sure to mix it in well. The baking soda will dry you out so this definitely has helped me stay hydrated, without losing the effect of the deodorant. Beyond that, simply exfoliating regularly. It keeps me smelling good all day but keep in mind, it is NOT an anti-perspirant so you’ll need to get used to that feeling – trust me, it’s worth it to avoid the bad chemicals in normal deodorant. Never going back 🙂

  • life changing

    Jm February 18, 2016

    this product 100% lives up to the hype! better consistency than the citrus version (this one is softer and easy to apply smoothly, the other is more dry and crumbly)

  • I wanted to this to work so badly!

    Emily December 11, 2015

    When I made the switch to safe products, I wanted to replace my aluminum deodorant first! The kind ladies at Follain highly recommended Soapwalla and I see why. I love the smell of both the regular and citrus creams, they keep me dry when I workout and I don’t mind the finger application. However, after about two weeks, my skin developed a painful rash. I need to come in to give Meow Meow Tweet a try because I think it’s the baking soda that is making my skin breakout. Even though this happened, I still recommend everyone getting a sample of Soapwalla and testing it out!

  • Try it out

    Jaimie July 12, 2015

    This stuff really works. Only problem is that it really irritated my skin. Very red. Very dried out. I’d suggest trying out a sample and seeing how your skin reacts to it before buying. Recently switched to meow meow tweet deodorant- hoping it’ll work out!

  • a natural deodorant that works

    Anna April 15, 2015

    I had tried several natural deodorants, which all left me smelling worse than if I had gone without. Then I found Soapwalla at Follain. It works great, even on yoga days and in the summer. Yes, sometimes I still sweat, but there’s not a noticeable smell. I had some issues with irritation at first, but now I moisturize with a few drops of jojoba oil before applying, and the irritation is gone (I make sure to wait at least a few hours after shaving). And a bonus for switching to natural deodorant: no more clothes with yellowing antiperspirant stains!

  • Works but irritated my skin

    Karen April 09, 2015

    I bought this when I was pregnant and didn’t want to use a chemical deodorant. It worked great but gave me a terrible skin rash. I was using it during the summer (when I was shaving pretty much every day) and that probably contributed to the irritation. I stuck with it all summer but my skin never adjusted to it. I have since switched to the Meow Meow Tweet deodorant and that also works well for me with no skin irritation.

  • Great Deodorant

    Paige March 20, 2015

    I have been using this deodorant since stopping into the Follain store in Nantucket in August. It definitely took some time to transition to the product as it gave me a burning red irritation/rash on my underarms. I did read online that a simple mixture of 1 part apple cider vinegar, 3 parts water applied to the underarms before application helps which it definitely did. The PH in your underarm needs time to adjust from all of the chemicals in most deodorants. I now no longer use the apple cider vinegar mixture and have been very happy with it.

  • Worked for a while

    Susan February 28, 2015

    I like the smell and it worked for a few weeks but then stopped. I am still searching for a good natural deodorant. You might consider giving it a try as it could work well with your own body’s chemistry.


    Cheryl G. February 22, 2015

    Since excluding all forms of aluminium from any products I use, which was a long time ago (many years!), I have searched for an effective underarm deo with limited satisfaction until I was introduced to this one in Follain. It has not let me down yet, and I live in Texas! I love that it has not only non-synthetic ingredients, but good quality natural ones, such as essential and ‘carrier’ oils, fine clay and sodium bicarbonate. It has a fresh, clean scent (natural – from the essential oils) that I really like; it is not sticky, as one might expect from the presence of oils, and, after the initial reticence, found the versatility of fingertip application very satisfactory. I have not had any irritation after shaving, as I took on board the advice given to shave at night, then the skin has time to settle before the morning application of the cream. All in all a real winner for me! Well done, Follain!

  • Okay

    Kathleen February 21, 2015

    Didn’t work as well as other natural deodorants I’ve tried (osmia is amazing), smell is not as lovely. Doesn’t really have an effect for me.

  • Pleasantly Surprised!

    Brigid February 21, 2015

    I was hesitant to try a natural deodorant but this stuff really works. It smells great and keeps me feeling fresh all day. I have noticed a bit of mild irritation if I put it on immediately after shaving, but otherwise I haven’t had any problems. I haven’t put it to the test during DC’s humid summers yet, but so far I’m in love!

  • Soft smooth clean feel.

    Whitney February 21, 2015

    So happy to find a natural deodorant that works. Light smell but good. Clean tree tea sent.

  • The last (best) natural deodorant you'll ever need!

    Jy February 21, 2015

    If you’re like me, you’ve been burned by your share of natural deodorants in the past. Those other natural deodorants just don’t work…lasting maybe an hour before you’re left smelling, well, unnatural. Soapwalla stands apart. It smells wonderful. It goes on easy. It lasts all day. I don’t know how they do it, but I love this product. Worth noting that it is applied with your fingers out of a jar – you get used to it quickly and the product results are well worth the change.

  • Best deoderant

    Sam February 21, 2015

    I’ve tried a few all natural deoderant and this one is by far the best! It smells lovely, lasts all day and doesn’t get on clothing.

  • best deoderant ever

    Jesse February 21, 2015

    I started using this deodorant about 6 months ago and will probably keep using it the rest of my life. I was shocked at how well it works – even if I’m working out and sweating quite a bit. I really like the texture and love that I can use a very small amount to cover my entire armpit and keep it working all day long. I did notice some very mild irritation if I used it after shaving in the beginning, but my skin seems to have gotten used to it and now I have no reaction at all. The only downside is that it’s not very stable at high temperatures and tends to separate, but it’s easy enough to just stir with your finger or shake before applying, and I only noticed that happen if the temperature was over 90 degrees.

  • It works!

    Lisa February 21, 2015

    Finally a natural solution for deoderant. This stuff not only works, it does not break out my sensitve skin. When I used to use drugstore brands, and some “natural” stick brands, I would end up with red, irritated PAINFUL pits. I have had a little redness once or twice but I’m sure it was razor burn. Still didn’t hurt as bad as what regular deoderant would.

  • Trying Something New!

    Charlotte February 21, 2015

    This was my first time using a natural deodorant and at first I was hesitant because I didn’t want to sweat and smell bad. However, once I learned about the potential hazards of using other antiperspirants and deodorants I decided to give this one a try.

    I am extremely pleased with the results and I have been using it for three months now. I apply it every night and sometimes I re-apply in the morning if I decide to do something strenuous (e.g. running, yoga).

    I haven’t experienced any bad body odor and it definitely absorbs sweat, the product itself smells great– very clean and fresh.

    I love the product so much I bought it for my mom, sisters, and aunt! It is now a staple piece in my toiletry bag and I am so glad I tried something new!

  • Can I give six stars?

    This product single-handedly sold me on Follain. There’s not much to say — it’s effective, takes very little, and I feel better knowing I’m not putting tons of chemicals right next to my lymph nodes. LESS IS MORE. Do not pile this on or you’ll end up getting irritated skin from the overload of baking soda. I use about half a pea sized amount and it works just fine.

  • Some pros some cons

    Charlotte February 20, 2015

    I decided to go with a natural deodorant after hearing the praise from the Follain girls! This is the first one I’ve tried that actually prevents the sweat of smell!

    In the winter months this is perfect under clothes. I don’t notice a stain and it really does work to mask odor. However, the consistency is a bit rough, and my underarms get a bit irritated trying to scrub in what otherwise feels like a bit of an exfoliater. I’ve always noticed slight armpit discoloration and as other users noted, you can’t put it on right after you shave. You have to wait at least a few hours.

    A great natural product to block odor, but if you don’t like the feel of sweat or the grainy’ness/potential discoloration, it might not be for you.

  • Best Deodorant Ever!

    Wendy February 20, 2015

    As another reviewer mentioned, my husband and I had each been using a “Powder Fresh” deodorant for many years, but the scent only contributed to exactly what a deodorant is supposed to eliminate – odor! My cousin Anne from Boston sent me the deodorant creme,(my first, but not last product from Follain) and it only took one try to get used to the feeling of using my fingertips to apply it. After that I was hooked. No scent, works as it should, lasts all day, A great natural product – I even gave it to girlfriends for Christmas, and they love it too!

  • Smells Amazing!

    Alex P. February 20, 2015

    Natural Deodorants were my first dip into the organic skin care world… but I could never find one that REALLY worked. I am always game to try a new product, and when Holly told me about this product I went for it – and am SO glad I did! It smells amazing and once a day application is all I need to get through the day. My one warning is that you can not put this anywhere near shaved skin… it really really hurts, and I’ve done it a few times without thinking and ended up with a rash. This is an excellent gift for new mom’s who are breast feeding as well! (A little personal – but shows a lot of thought!)

  • Not for Me

    Jessica February 20, 2015

    I originally became interested in this deodorant after reading a number of positive reviews on it. As a background on me, I have been using the same antiperspirant since I was in high school as, at that time, it was the only one I found to work for me. I also keep an extra one at work as I find that I need to reapply multiple times a day. So, yes, I am a sweaty girl, at least under my armpits. What won me on the idea of trying a natural deodorant was not actually the health benefits (which are only theories at this point in time) but the fact that the aluminum in antiperspirant causes yellow deodorant stains (which has been a huge problem for me, especially since I love wearing white clothes). Any health benefits from this deodorant working would just be icing on the cake.

    Anyway, I was very hopeful and positive about my purchase. However, I think that going natural is just not for me. As stated, I am pretty sweaty… maybe even above average (considering I don’t see many coworkers with deodorant stored in their desks), so just masking the smell was not satisfactory enough for me. I could still feel the moistness under my armpits which made me feel uncomfortable all day. The reason I give it 2 stars is because it did seem to at least be successful at masking the smell of sweat. So there’s that.

    I think this would be best for someone that does not find they sweat too much in everyday life and just want to make sure they smell fresh and clean throughout the day.

  • Amazing

    I tried close to 10 different non-toxic deodorants, all with reviews from people swearing their efficiency, only to be the smelly kid at the end of the day. No more! The wonderful people at Follain told me they fried 30 different products before choosing this one and I’m glad they did so my deodorant graveyard could stop growing. This product works with ONE application- no need to reapply throughout the day. I made my fiance try it and he’s now a Soapwalla convert too!
