Athlete Grade Natural Deodorant – Axilla Deodorant Paste

We tested a few natural deodorants and voted Axilla Deodorant Paste by Black Chicken Remedies, a great unisex athlete grade natural deodorant.


1. Effective in reducing the feeling of sweat

After hot and sweaty training sessions, each of us thought the paste felt like it reduced normal levels of sweating. It was not that we sweated less but that the paste absorbed some of the moisture making us feel a little dryer than usual. Don’t forget, as this natural deodorant does not contain potentially harmful aluminium compounds found in antiperspirants, it does not actually stop the normal sweating process.

2. Appealing unisex scent

When I first opened the tub, the initial smell reminded me of those cola bottles lollies that I grew up with as a child. My youngest also thought the same.

The smell of the paste is very pleasant with the essential oils of peppermint, cajaput, mandarin, clove, rose geranium, lime, lavender, and cedarwood. It is an earthy scent suitable for both males and females, therefore making it a great unisex natural deodorant.

3. Paste application

This was our first paste deodorant. It was unusual at first, but we now prefer it over sprays and roll-ons. With sprays, you are never quite sure of the application coverage. The roll on we tried was very wet and required a very long dry time. The paste spreads easily and allows you to make sure you are fully covered and ready to go.

4. Long lasting

When worn on a normal day to school or work, the Axilla Deodorant Paste was effective in keeping you feeling dryer.

5. Effective in neutralising odour

None of us are particularly smelly even when sweaty, but we did find that during the normal day and after training, the Axilla Deodorant Paste seemed to neutralise any odour.

6. All natural ingredients – no nasties here!

Axilla Deodorant paste is hand made from 100% natural ingredients – Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Camellia Tea Oil, Sodium Bicarbonate, Arrowroot, Kaolin Clay, Essential Oils of Peppermint, Cajaput, Mandarin, Clove, Rose Geranium, Lime, Lavender, and Cedarwood.

CONS (well, not really):

1. Pricier than normal deodorants – But reasonable compared to other natural deodorants

At the RRP of $18.50 a jar of 75ml paste, Axilla Deodorant Paste seems pricey when compared to normal deodorants. However, it is actually reasonably priced when compared to other natural deodorants and I am happy to pay this premium for a safe and effective athlete grade natural deodorant for my family.

The jar looks small but instructions are that you only need to apply a pea-sized amount of the paste to each armpit. Longer time users have indicated it can, therefore last up to a few months.
