Buy it! This is seriously the best natural deodorant I have tried and I’ve tried every single big brand. I have extremely sensitive pits and this stuff makes them soft. Of course, it’s not antiperspirant so you’ll still swear (as you should). My girlfriend and I both use it daily, if not twice daily, and the 2 oz jar lasted us 3 months. Just bought the 8 oz jar! It’s that good!

Rose/geranium deo

Guys!!! I work at a u-pick blueberry farm 7 hours a day and am standing in 85 degree sun most of the time and by the end of my day, I’m sooo sweaty and sometimes sunburnt but my armpits DONT SMELL!!!! It’s magical.


Rose deodorant

This deodorant man... I cannot recommend it enough!! I've been following Geevie and Sophia on Instagram for years and kept hearing about all their raving reviews for their deodorant, so once I finally finished the one I was using I gave theirs a try and I'm SO HAPPY I DID. I had been searching for an effective plastic-free deodorant for YEARS ever since I started trying to go zerowaste. I always had a new one I was trying and none of them ever really worked for me or they just gave me really bad rashes. I seriously wish I could just go back in time and get my money back for all the other deodorants I've tried and just buy this one. The fact that they're a small, woman owned business (literally just them two) is the fucking cherry on top. I will forever support!



LOVE THIS SO MUCH! I bought the deodorant first and it didn't work as much as I wanted to, but then when I tried the detox I was in shock. They work together so perfectly, a duo you need when switching for natural deo. I don't stink at all, considering the intensive amount of heat and humidity in Puerto Rico. The grapefruit scent is my favorite. 100% recommended.

Deodorant and Armpit detox

It sounds like the typical cliche success story but I have tried almost every natural deodorant out there and nothing ever worked. I also have very sensitive underarms and can't use products with baking soda. As I started transitioning to zero waste, I decided to purchase the grapefruit bergamot deodorant from Zero Waste Store. I can't get over how effective it is. It does not irritate my underarms, smells nice (but not overpowering) and truly keeps body odor at bay. The other day, I went for a 3 mile run in 85 degree heat, and was drenched in sweat but my underarms were still smelling fresh. I am hooked and always get excited to apply the deodorant because I'm so grateful I finally found something that is both effective and in alignment with my values. Thank you so much!


Best. Deodorant. Ever.

Can’t get enough of this deodorant. I just finished up my 4 oz. grapefruit bergamot deo after a little over 5 months and its by far the best I’ve used. First, it’s such an amazing scent, fresh and sophisticated. Second, I have noticed that I barely sweat, if at all, when I use it! I just received the lemon/lavender deo and it literally smells like SUMMER. I love that the lemon scent isn’t sweet, and the lavender brings a fresh/ earthy component to it. Can’t wait to try more products! :)

Alli Umhoefer


I love this product so much that I want to give it to everyone I know!!!!!! It is perfect! I found it because I wanted a lip stain that would have healthy ingredients, be a good color, be moisturizing and long wearing, keep its color AND not come in a plastic tube... This does it all! I LOVE this product. The price is right, there is no weird taste or smell, it's small batch and US made and it's a small, women owned business.

Tinted Lip Balm

O B S E S S E D!!!! I started with the grapefruit bergamot deodorant paste, but grapefruit isn't my personal favorite scent so when I would sweat I didn't enjoy it. I also live in the south so it didnt cover BO without being applied at least 2 times. BUT the lemon lavender scent is magical! I L O V E the smell and I havent had to reapply even during the 80+ degree days (might have to apply twice during the 90+ degree summer days). 10/10. I can't wait to try the sandalwood scent!

Lauren Faulk

Lemon Lavendar Deo

This deodorant is amazing! I purchased this as well as the armpit detox since I was switching from a chemical deodorant. This is the first time a deodorant hasnt given me a rash or any irritation! And to top it off, I dont smell as much as what I used to when using a non natural deodorant!


Grapefruit deodorant

I heard about the products from a friend and placed an order - that night I had to cancel the order, and they got back to me within an hour with a full refund! While I obviously didn't end up using the product, that customer service deserves five stars all on it's own!

Bailey White


I love the scent of this product! It’s not too strong yet gets the job done of masking my regular BO. It feels great on the skin, very lightweight and creamy. A small jar typically lasts me around 3 - 4 months.


Rose Geranium Deodorant

The BEST natural deodorant I've ever used!! lasts all day and doesn't leave any residue. And the fact that it is zero waste makes it even better! On my second jar, and I will be repurchasing, can't see myself using any other deodorant now!


Sensitive Skin Deodorant

Honest to God, Sustainyoself lip balm is the best I have ever used, and trust me, I've gone through 100s of brands. Do yourself a favor and get some while you can!

Jonah M

Lip Balm

As a women, it’s easy to get scummed out there when it comes to bath products. Luckily I found sustainyoself and have been ordering from them for months now. Even though I recommend all their products, their deodorant is easily my favorite deodorant I have ever used; it’s smooth, easy to use, and lasts all day. All my feminine needs are met bc of sys! Thanks gals ;)

Alicia Muff

Sensitive Skin Deodorant

Simply amazing! Love the feel of this lotion and works magically. I’m constantly washing my hands because of my demanding job, making my hands super dry. I apply this lotion about three times a day and it works perfectly to heal my dryness. Excellent!


Body Butter

I love how the ingredients are organic and clean so it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. It melts so nicely and is perfect for giving massages. Not to mention it smells so delicious. I will definitely get another one once I finish this jar (which will be a while since a little goes a long way). And big props for the cute glass packaging bye bye to all the icky plastic bottles. Thank you for making such great sustainable products!!


Body Butter

I’ve tried sooo many natural deodorants (Schmidt’s, Native, Tom’s, etc) over the last few months and nothing ever worked. I recently came across Sustainyoself’s Instagram page and discovered that I needed to detox my armpits when switching to natural deodorant, so I used their armpit detox recipe. I still found myself smelling so I decided to order their sensitive skin deodorant. IN LOVE is an understatement. After detoxing my armpits and using this deodorant for the last couple of weeks, my pits don’t smell all day! I apply the deodorant in the morning and I’m set. I also love the fact that their products are zero waste! I’ll definitely be repurchasing my lip balm and deodorant from sustainyoself! :)

Sensitive Skin Deodorant

Most amazing natural deodorant I've tried yet! I can last all day at work with only one application. Thanks so much for making this formula, I will be purchasing more when I run out!

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!!

-Perla Valdez Gómez



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 @sustainyoselfshop.

-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 absoluetly 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 sustainyoself :) :) :)

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 sustainyoself 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!!




I love your lip balms!! It's the best lip balm I've ever used. I used to use Burts Bee's and it would always irritate my lips and cause redness but after using yours the irritation completely went away and I had instant relief!!! It's so much better than anything I could buy at the pharmacy. I will forever be buying your lip balms. Thank you guys for all that you're doing and for providing such an effective and sustainable product!




Ran out of my usual natural deodorant and decided to finally try out the well-loved all-natural homemade cream deodorant from sustainyoself. 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 Sustainyoself 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!
