Baking-Soda Free Natural Deodorant: Little Seed Farm Activated Charcoal Deodorant Cream

little seed farm activated charcoal natural deodorant

I guess you could say I am something of a natural deodorant connoisseur- if there is such a thing. I figure since I live in one of the hottest locales in the U.S., it's my duty to sample the variety of natural deodorants to help y'all figure out which ones are worthwhile.

Yes, I said ya'll.

Little Seed Farm products are handcrafted in Tennessee- I was introduced to their line at an AirBNB I stayed at during a recent trip to Nashville. The owners of LSF left their NYC lives in favor of a rural Tennessee farm where they now live off the land and make small batch beauty products.

{BTW, so dreamy- in a Chip and Joanna Gaines kind of way.}

I've been on the search for a while for a good baking-soda free, aluminum free natural deodorant. Some readers were not happy that a previous pick of mine contained kaolin clay (which can contain aluminum) so I have been on the look out for another option my baking soda sensitive friends would enjoy.

When I discovered Little Seed Farm's natural deodorant offerings, I had to try them out. And with my recent love of activated charcoal facial products (see here and here), I loved the idea of an activated charcoal deodorant.

So how did Little Seed Farm's Activated Charcoal Deodorant Cream survive a warm Arizona welcome?

This wonderful product is easy to apply and doesn't breakdown in the heat the way most natural deodorants do (so no excessive finger stirring to mix it all up). The scent is light and spearmint-y so it's great for girls and guys (hubby didn't even mind using it when his go to product ran out). And no, it doesn't look all gray on your skin- I'm as fair as they come and I had no issues at all.
