Hooray! For all those with sensitive pits – we now offer a Bicarb-Free Deodorant.
Babs Geranium & Clary Sage Deodorant works by neutralising odour causing bacteria without blocking pores with nasty ingredients. This allows you to sweat and expel toxins but keeps you smelling fresh.
This new formula contains nourishing shea and cacao butter, tapioca to absorb wetness and coconut oil for it’s naturally anti bacterial and anti fungal properties. But we’ve swapped out bicarb and used Magnesium to help keep odour at bay.
A lovely fresh floral blend of essential oils include Geranium, Clary Sage, Lavender and Tea Tree which are anti-bacterial, calming and help to reduce excessive sweating.
We’ve tested it on the most sensitive armpits and the verdict is “Yes, it works”, “I’m loving this bicarb free deo”.
Directions:Take a small amount of paste, around the size of a five cent piece, melt on your fingers, spread gently under each arm.
Note – If transitioning from an antiperspirant please note some people experience a detox period. Your pores will unblock and you may find you need to apply a second time during the day. This normally only lasts for a few days.
Ingredients: *Coco nucifera (coconut), *Butyrospermum parkii (shea butter), Magnesium Hydroxide, Manihot Esculenta (tapioca), *Theobroma cacao (cocoa butter), *Pelargonium graveolens (geranium), *Salvia sclarea (clary sage), *Lavendula angustifolia, *Melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree)

I’d tried other natural deodorants and had a reaction but not this one. It smells great and works well too. Highly recommend!
I liked the idea of a natural deodorant option and have tried a few different types - I keep coming back to Babs because it works, I love the rose geranium scent and it seems to be much gentler to use (particularly in winter) than some of the other stick options.
I told Celeste that although Babs Tea Tree Deodorant worked, I unfortunately was getting a reaction from daily use and asked her for what she's suggest I try next. Thankfully she knows her stuff and said she thinks it was the bicarb that I was reacting to and suggested this Bicard Free one instead. I can now safely say it is suitable for sensitive skin and really works! I must admit it took me a while to adjust to applying my deodorant with my hands, but it feels like second nature now.
This deodorant actually works, doesn't leave marks and smells natural and clean. Lasts a long time and no plastic involved.
If you have been searching for years for a natural deodorant that actually works and doesn't make your skin sensitive (aka bi-carb free, but works...) give this one a go. I have tried upwards of 20 different brands of natural deodorants over the years - seriously! And then after I had my child, the only one I could use, stopped working. Celeste recommended this one, and I won't look back! It works, doesn't stain or stick to clothing, keeps me dry (!!) and is bi-carb free so doesn't sensitise my skin. Too good to be true!
