Tinted lip balm

The prettiest lip balm/cheek tint there ever was <3 A lot of similar products from bigger companies use plastic tubes or chunky glass pots but when I’m done this lil guy I get to throw it right in my home compost! The product really lasts a good while so

Organic Unscented Body Butter

A BODY CARE STAPLE! As someone who has sensitive skin (and eczema) this is a product I can count on to not cause irritation. I also used it for so many other things beyond just a face/body lotion. I have frizzy/wavy hair and I put the tiniest amount of this lotion in my palm then apply it to my damp hair and my hair feels so soft when it dries. I even have used this product as a makeup remover and it works wonders!

Grapefruit Sensitive Skin Deodorant

I’ve been using this product for almost a year now, and I won’t go back. When I first swapped to natural deodorants I used a brand that caused my armpits to be itchy and irritated and did not help with body odor. I was afraid that I wasn’t going to be able to use a sustainable deodorant option. I was skeptical to try Sustain Yourself deodorant but have not been disappointed at all since I started using it. It helps with body odor and my armpits haven’t broken out or been irritated at all since I started using it. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for more sustainable self-care products.

Lavender Lotion Bar

This lotion bar has been the biggest game changer for my feet! For the first time that I can remember I have NO dead skin, cracked skin, or bleeding skin! Just beautiful healthy feet! No more pain or embarrassment! I am so so grateful for this product!! And I am always blown away by this company, it’s products, it’s customer service, it’s education on our environmental impact, and values! Win-win-win!


Sarah Walker

Cedarwood Deodorant

I was very skeptical to try another natural deodorant, since I have never had luck. I decided to buy a travel size of the cedarwood scent, and I think I'm in love. This deodorant is so much better than any store bought I have ever tried! I look forward to using it each morning. Definitely going to buy a larger size and to refill my travel size!

Lemon Lavender Deodorant

I have been trying to find a natural, aluminum free deodorant for the past four+ years. I've probably gone through 20 different brands and they all either leave me stinky and/or with a rash. This deodorant ACTUALLY WORKS and is gentle on my sensitive skin. Natural deodorant that works, recyclable and compostable packaging, all while supporting two amazing, young, local business women: YES PLEASE!


emily f

rose geranium deodorant cream

i’ve been using this deodorant for a month now and it’s the best deodorant i have ever tried! i have the 2oz and i believe this will last me 3-4 months because a little goes a long way! it’s very easy to put on and it’s not messy. smells great and leaves me feeling fresh all day! there is no need to try all different kinds of natural deodorant when the perfect one is right here. i’ve never recommended a product so much in my life!! if you’re looking for a sign, this is it!



Lemon Lavender Deo

I LOVE THIS DEO!!!!! At first I thought it would be weird to apply with my hands, but honestly it’s not weird at all. It smells amazing (I use the lemon lavender). I honestly don’t notice a difference in sweaty & smelly between this and the non-natural deodorants I’ve been using my whole life (which is always everyone’s argument against switching!). I didn’t need to do a detox to switch but I love that they have it available!!! I can’t say enough good things about this deo!!! Do yourself a favor and switch immediately!!!



Best DEO for Sensitive Skin!

lemon lavender deodorant

this is the best natural deodorant HANDS DOWN. everything i’ve ever tried has burned and left my underarms red and irritated, but this is the most gentle and most effective deodorant on the market! never buying anything else ever again, love this shop ❤️

Grapefruit Deodorant

I absolutely love this deodorant. It smells really good and works even better! I’ve tried so many different natural deodorants, but this one takes the cake. I apply once in the morning, and I don’t need to reapply like the other natural deodorants I’ve tried. I love supporting a small business, too. I’ll be buying this deodorant forever.


Kathryn Gatewood

peppermint lip balm (damaged) & rose and geranium deodorant cream (2.0 oz)

peppermint lip balm (damaged): First off, I totally lucked out and got one of the perfect lip balms at the price of a damaged one which I thought was so sweet because Geevie and Sophia could’ve totally not done that. As soon as I put the lip balm on it felt like butter and melted into my lips! I love everything about it, especially the packaging!

rose and geranium deodorant cream (2.0 oz): I am most excited about this swap, but I was super nervous to begin. My worries we’re eased as soon as I opened the super cute jar (that I can’t wait to reuse!). I used less than a pea size and felt like that was enough and it smoothed beautifully onto my skin. The scent is amazing and stays strong throughout the day.

Thank you Geevie and Sophia for all that you do! Will definitely purchase again once I run out!



Eucalyptus Body Butter

This body butter is simply gold. Due to the harsh cold of Minnesota, my skin typically gets super dry during the winter time, sometimes leaving me with dry spots on my body. After trying this body butter, my dry spots went away almost immediately, and it leaves your skin feeling silky smooth and smells amazing. This body butter is great for relieving dryness and feels like it is actually healing the skin. Totally recommend, 10/10.

Rose geranium deodorant

Dang this stuff works. I’ve struggled with insane irritation from baking soda in natural deo, but found that formulas without it weren’t as effective. Sustain Yourself’s rose geranium deodorant lasts me all day and even when the scent starts to fade towards the evening, there’s no bad odor. I prefer stick packaging so I don’t have to use my fingers, but I’ve had no problem scooping out a little bit with a bamboo spoon and applying, and then using the backside to rub it in.


Sofie Conroy

Tinted & Peppermint lip balm/lemon lavender deo

Obsessed!! I just got my order and I am so impressed with how wonderful everything is! The lip balm is a dream and the lavender lemon deodorant smells like heaven!! I can not wait to order more from these babes🧡🙌


Hannah Walsh

Grapefruit deo

I’m literally looking forward to putting on deodorant tomorrow...... this stuff smells AMAZING and actually works! I applied once in the morning and it lasted all day, whereas for my old deodorant I would usually have to reapply. Love everything about this product and will definitely reorder when I run out! I also bought the tinted lip balm for a friend and she loves it!


Rachel D

Unscented Deodorant

I bought both the lip balm and the deo, and left a review for the balm the other day because I really really love it. For the deo, I wanted to try it for a while to see how it works before leaving a review, and IT REALLY WORKS! I am so so impressed and thrilled to have found it.
I have been trying natural, low waste products but for others that I had before this, I could notice immediately that they did not work as well to prevent the smell and the sweating, maybe they do work but not for me personally. This does its job wonderfully and I feel really comfortable and confident going through my day. I love these products, they are my go-to now and I will be supporting your business in the future. Thank you!


Emma Gardner

Grapefruit Deodorant Cream

I am blown away by this deo! I initially ordered the smallest travel size in both cedar wood and rose geranium, because I wasn't sure which scent to choose. I loved them both! I also LOVED how well this deodorant worked. The quality of ingredients and the quality of performance is top notch. Seriously, I apply it after my showers & a little refresh in the morning and I'm good to go all day. I bike commute to work and this keeps me not only smelling amazing but somehow less sweaty? Mind-blowing. I ended up ordering a larger size jar of the grapefruit, and plan to keep my travel size jars in my workout bag and purse. The grapefruit is like the perfect blend of the rose and the cedar wood scents in my opinion, and is just so dang heavenly. The rose being more flowery & the cedar wood being a richer scent, with the grapefruit you get the best of both worlds. I was nervous to try the grapefruit because I usually can't stand heavy grapefruit scents in products, usually artificial, and I totally wasn't expecting for this to smell so bright and cheerful. I gave it a shot because I know they use all natural ingredients, and boy am I glad I did. So creamy, so moisturizing... so superior to any other natural deo I've tried. 10 /10 - highly recommend you give this product a try!!


Nathalie Montenegro

Grapefruit Deodorant/ Armpit Detox

I’ve been on the natural deodorant game for about 2 years now, so I’ve tried a few different options but this one is by far the best natural deodorant I’ve used. I also bought the armpit detox and used it twice a week for about 3 weeks, and haven’t needed to use it since. The detox has reduced any odor and the deodorant itself just smells so amazing. I love how the deodorant is a cream so my pits don’t just smell good, but feel soo smooth too! With just the pea sized amount I use, I smell good for the entire day! This will definitely be my new go-to natural deodorant!

I received the package last week and I am OBSESSED!!! I’ve been using a diy deo that has worked overall and was a much better alternative than conventional deo, but it still left me with a bit of odor at times so I had to freshen up at least once a day depending on what I was doing each day. I’m completely amazed at how I don’t smell whatsoever with your deo!!! I’m so self conscious about my odor and am constantly checking to make sure I don’t stink and I haven’t had to do that since using your deo for a few days now. Tbh I just check a few times a day bc I’m like “holy cow, is this real!?” Thank you so much for this amazing product!! I have yet to try the rose one but it smells incredible so I’m sure it’ll work just as well! Also, completely love the tinted lip balm!! Feels so good to have a new go-to lip tint that’s nontoxic! Oh, and thank you for adding the peppermint lip balm, it’s just as amazing!!

I decided to replace my deodorant with a more natural and eco friendly option and came along your formula. I was skeptical because all my life I have been battling to find the right deodorant for me. I've always had a problem with a strong odor and my deodorants wouldn't last that long, it was very hard for me because I was always self conscious about my body odor. I tried the no scent natural deodorant for sensitive skin along with a vegan armpit detox and it has been life changing. It lasts more than 24hours, I don't sweat as much and I no longer feel self conscious about my body odor. It's such an amazing formula: a little goes a long way, it's creamy and soft, hydrates my armpits and doesn't irritate the skin. Thank you so much for creating this formula. 

-Gabriela Medina



The best body butter I've had! Great ingredients, great sustainable shop, supporting a woman business. Thank you so much @sustainyourselfshop.

-Sarahi Serrano 



I want to say I'm in love with the deodorant!! For the first time ever, I like that it's in glass, I love that kind of whipped texture and omggg the smell!!! Easy to apply, of course I sweat, but it doesn't block it which is good, it also doesn't smell all over me like a perfume. For real, the best I've tried so far! My armpits thank you a lot! Much love your way.




Your unscented deo [thumbs up, clapping emoji]

My mom has sensitive skin, and she's allergic to fragrances, so deodorant has been a STRUGGLE [lauhging emoji]. I've always been helping her finish does that give her a reaction or don't work, so I ordered this one for her and it's AWESOME, thank you so much! My mom was super pumped to see it at eastside [co-op] now too!

-an instagram user



I've been using your deo for about a week now and I didn't think deodorant would make me feel this giddy but it does! I'm excited to wake up in the morning. When I ran out of my old plastic deo I ordered this immediately and then just didn't wear any deodorant at all while I was waiting for it to arrive in the mail (~4-5 days) so I didn't do an armpit detox but I haven't had any issues at all. It lasts all day and smells amazing (and I work at a super sweaty, gross smelling summer job). It's a little miracle in a jar. I wish everyone would have this!!

-@g.rose on Instagram





I'm in love with my new deodorant from you guys too! I got the 2oz jar and already know it's going to last a while which is AMAZING! As soon as I'm out I'm messaging you guys for a refill. It literally smells amazing, works incredibly well with my sensitive skin, and I LOVE that it doesn't hurt any animals or the planet!! Xoxo






I absolutely LOVE mine!!! It smells so lovely and now I can't live without it - and i've tried every single sensitive skin natural deo! 






I LOVE it!! definitely needed the detox to get my armpits used to not using [toxic] chemcials, but it's working so well now! works all day in all sorts of summer activities :) i've recommended it to a bunch of friends who are trying to be more sustainable!!

-Giselle Durand





Okay so I don't usually write reviews but WOW! Y'all have out done yoselvessss!! This deodorant is amazing. I've been struggling for soooo long with extreme sweating which in return, cuases my armpits to smell all the time!! I used to have to use store-bought deodorant 5-10 times a day and still smell. With your deodorant, I will use a tiny pea sized amount like y'all said, and go to hot yoga classes, the beahc, play soccer and my armpits still smell hella fresh!!!! And it's zero waste!!! And I repeat, WOW! Thank you so much. I love it so much and I'm probably gonna go order more for my mom after she tries it. Thank you again. Y'all are wonderful. Oh, and I forgot to review the tinted lip balm. Perfect shade, lasts for-fuckin-ever (literally though, I come out of my hot yoga classes looking bomb), and it's zero waste!!

Thank you and have a great day!!






I usually don't leave reviews, but your deodorant is too incredible to pass up. I've been struggling with sweaty pits for years, and would always notice a slight smell, even with strong-scented antipersirants. After realizing the awful items in those deodorants, I swithced to yours, and let me say...IT IS A MIRACLE. From the moment I put it on in the morning to at night, I am stink-free AND have noticed I am sweating a lot less than I used to! Not to mention, it smells so good and is the perfect consistency. I wish all stores sold this stuff!

-from an instagram user





Bruh, this deodorant. GAME CHANGER. As with every review, I have used so many natural deodorants that either don't work or smell disgusting on top of my own funk. Yours not only works so well I can skip a day and still smell amazing but I only need ONE application to last me 2 days. What?!
I even use it on my feet because cloth soled sandals are the devil and want me to suffer. Bless you ladies for making something that actually works and is affordable AND zero waste. Just amaze.
It's amazing. Although my boyfriend would appreciate if I stopped putting my armpits in his face yelling, "Legit there's no smell! I promise!" 






I've been using this deodorant + an underarm detox from No Tox Life for about a week and I'm absolutely in love!! No irritation (and lemme tell you I've gotten some nasty rashes from other natural deodorants), my armpits don't smell, even AFTER working a 9-5 and walking around in 90+ degree miami heat.





I must say I am in love! It is amazing, smells wonderful and works like a charm! The natural deodorants I've tried before left me with a nasty rash (I blame the baking soda) but this one leaves me moisturized!




Such a naturally flushed, pretty look. It comes in sustainable packaging, made with natural ingredients and is the product of a woman-owned small business. Win win win!






I am absolutely in LOVE with this all natural, sensitive skin deodorant from sustain yourself :) :) :) 

I react to baking soda that is commonly used in natural deodorant and I've had a rough time finding a BS free version that actually worked! Enter this amazing concoction from these amazing fellow Minnesotans and I am hooked!




Shout out to sustainyourself lipstick for keeping our lips so soft, hydrated and for its packaging!!! You guys are really caring about the world :) thanks!!! Please make the tint one again because I will be getting it too!!

Ran out of my usual natural deodorant and decided to finally try out the well-loved all-natural homemade cream deodorant from sustain yourself. After a full day of use I have to say I love it!! The texture reminds me of soufflé & it kept me odor-free and fresh through a long work day!






Amazing color. I was hesitant about getting this but finally decided to order one and boy am I glad I did! This is by far the prettiest color I've ever had on my lips. I love how subtle it is but it's easily buildable if you want a more intense color. Also the fact that it doubles as a cheek stain is perfect. I've been trying to simplify and detox my makeup routine and this is my favorite piece so far!!





Never thought I'd see the day! :)

THE ONLY DEODORANT THAT HAS EVER DONE ITS JOB! I have tried every brand in stores CVS, whole foods, natural remedies and no success till this lovely <3 <3 <3 it's a must buy! Feels amazing to be hard at work in a hot kitchen cookin and cleaning for 10 hours and not have any stinky pits by sun down ugh so happy about this product! 5 stars for getting the job done! 6th star for being zero waste! 7th star for being natural and safe for the human body, beyond pleased.






Deodorant reacts different to everyone based on diet and other factors but I can say I am a very sweaty and stinky individual and I just bought 2 more of these because other zero waste options don't even come close not to mention this has been better overall than any deodorant I've bought ever. Treat yo self!






I have only been using this deodorant but it is now my favorite natural deodorant by far! Thank you so much!

-Lauren Beaubien





Okay this tinted lip balm is the BOMB. I also used a bit on my cheeks for a little color. Bless Sustain Yourself and their sustainable packaging and awesome products.

-Sophia Braun





Okay so I tried the deodorant today & feel the need to tell y'all I loooooove this formula! Goes on super smooth & creamy, the other deodorant I've been using doesn't go on so smooth :-) defo will be either repurchasing when I finish or attempting my own LOL!!






The deodorant has been a life saver! 

After a good detox my lymph nodes healed and I started using it. Don't even have to put it on ever day. No stank, no redness, no pain.

-@brewheads on Instagram




I have lovedddddd your deodorants. I've tried so many natural deodorants that haven't worked at all and still use a ton of plastic. I love this deo and it has worked so well. I also don't mind when it gets a little melty because it's super easy to apply ha.

-Sophia Braun





I have been so happy with my deodorant and lip balm!! The deodorant has survived long weekdays and weekends as a college student, which is better than any deodorant I've used! I apply once or twice daily and I'm set for active days, late nights, sweaty lecture halls, etc. I also don't mind when it's a little melty because it's easier to apply! The lip balm tube is also so convenient for taking to class. I've gotten so many compliments on the tube! Thank you for two of my favorite new products!

-Justice Hadley





I received my Sustainyoself deodorant about a week ago. I love it, it smells amazing and is packed full so I think its going to last me a long time! Oh yeah and it works!
