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)

A massive THANK YOU to Celeste for recommending this deodorant! I was a little sceptical about how it would hold up, but I didn’t need to worry. It lasted through a hot Pilates class and a whole day running around in 34deg! I love the fact that it’s not sticky, doesn’t contain any chemicals and no nasty yellow stains on my clothes (it passed the white linen dress test!). It’s a little different applying deodorant with your hands, but I’m used to it now. Gorgeous scent and very cute little recyclable glass pot, too. Totally converted!
Non irritating, great scent, works well!
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.
