The best men’s eco-friendly deodorants

From a spray-on from Aesop to a subscription service roll-on from Wild, these are the best environmentally-minded deodorants for men

There’s more than one way to be clean. Sure, you could take a shower, get out your cleansers and conditioners and freshen up that way. But there’s only so much scrubbing and shampooing one man can do. And, these days, being ‘clean’ means more than simply sprucing yourself up. It means being green, and adding sustainability and eco-credentials to your grooming routine.

Enter natural, herbal and environmentally friendly grooming products. They may be vegan, they may be sustainably sourced — but they’re all ecologically sound and extremely effective. Take these men’s deodorants below; from sprays to sticks to salves, there’s a fresh, clean and thoroughly green option for everyone…

Horace Natural Deodorant

A strong start, Horace’s natural, aluminium-free stick deodorant contains ingredients that are 95.2% of natural origin. That means eucalyptus oil to sanitise your skin. It means clary sage to control sebum levels. It means tea tree to reduce unpleasant odours. Made in France, it’s alcohol-free, paraben-free and with a gentle fragrance to bring calm to even the most fraught days.

Aesop Herbal Deodorant

Another aluminium-free offering, this botanically based formula blends refreshing essential oils with sage leaf and witch hazel to protect you all day with a fresh, herbaceous fragrance. Unlike most natural deodorants, Aesop’s spritz on the style isn’t a roll-on — and instead takes the form of a light, evaporative mist. 

Salt & Stone Eucalyptus & Cedarwood Natural Deodorant

Created without synthetic fragrances or dyes, Salt & Stone’s natural deodorant is as moisturising as it is protective. This roll-on blends shea butter, jojoba oil and vitamin E to condition delicate skin, while probiotics help neutralise odours. But the real star of this deodorising show is hyaluronic acid; a compound that behaves like a sponge, and can bind up to 1,000 times its own weight in water.

Corpus Naturals N° Green Natural Deodorant

Perhaps the most floral natural deodorant on this list, the N° Green Natural Deodorant from Corpus Naturals is created using naturally-derived enzymes and plant extracts in a water-based formula. It contains notes of bergamot, pink lemon, orange blossom, and cardamom for a bright, citrusy scent. And, for added eco-friendliness, it’s also vegan.

AKT London ‘The Deodorant Balm’

British-born and incredibly effective, AKT’s ‘The Deodorant Balm’ was created by London’s West End performers — who know a thing or two about pressure. Scented with cedar, eucalyptus, bitter orange and rosemary, this one is a balm; absorbed instantly and helpfully moisturising thanks to a formula including shea butter and calendula oil.
