Do you stink? It saps your confidence, right? I know, because I’m a man, and if I don’t use natural deodorant my armpits stink. I have a shower, wash with soap and 5 minutes later my armpits are already taking on that sharp, sour BO smell we all know. What’s up with that?! There’s a bacteria party in my armpits and everyones invited. For years I jumped between store bought antiperspirant deodorants for men. They kind of worked, but not that well. I’m not a fan of spraying aluminium all over my armpits every morning either.


Sick of smelling I set out to learn everything I could about men’s natural deodorant. And in doing so created the best natural deodorant for men Australia has to offer. My BO problem? Solved. I learnt a heck of a lot about BO and deodorant in the process. So, buckle up and get ready. Let's embark on an adventure to answer all the questions men of Australia have about natural deodorant. Let's dive in, shall we?

What is men's natural deodorant and how does it work?

Picture this: you're strolling through a forest, the trees are emitting delightful scents. Natural deodorant harnesses the power of plants, sans any sketchy chemicals, to keep you smelling like the nature-loving gentleman you are. Instead of going all Hulk on your sweat glands like antiperspirants, natural deodorants focus on neutralising odour causing bacteria. They use natural and safe ingredients like baking soda, Magnesium Hydroxide and essential oils to tackle the stink without blocking your body's natural processes.

Does natural deodorant actually work?

Natural deodorants are no joke. While they won't stop the sweat train entirely (humans are meant to sweat), they'll keep those funky smells at bay. It's all about kicking those bacteria's butts. Bad body odour develops when naturally occurring bacteria under your armpits convert your sweat into pungent smelling compounds.

To stop the stink, we need to stop the bacteria raising families under your armpits. Arluka natural deodorant form men does this. And does it really well! Without getting technical, our natural deodorant for men controls the Ph of your armpits. This reduces bacterial growth. And stops the stink. Ahh, science.

Will I have to sacrifice my manliness for fresh pits?

Absolutely not, my burly (or not so burly) compadre! Arluka Natural deodorants are available in a range of gender neutral scents. No need to smell like you’ve been rolling around in your grandmas flower garden.

Will my armpits turn into a slip 'n slide?

Ah, the fear of sweaty underarms—the struggle is real! Natural deodorants for men don’t block your pores like aluminium based antiperspirant deodorant does. This means mens natural deodorant won't turn off the sweat faucet completely. They will keep you fresh and dry enough to avoid embarrassment. Remember though, your sweat won’t smell anymore. It only takes a little time to adjust and become comfortable with the idea of letting your body sweat. The way it’s meant to.

Will natural deodorant for men keep me smelling fresh all day?

I did A LOT of testing to formulate the most effective yet irritation free natural deodorant for men. This means I had to go for a few days without washing my underarms to test formulas. Ok, yeah, I admit this is gross. But it needed to happen. I can say, that if I apply a pea sized amount of natural deodorant I won’t stink for three days. Like, not at all. Zilch, no smell. It may last longer, but you know, showers. Who am I to overlook the wonder of 21st century plumbing? For best results apply a pea sized amount to each armpit each day after you shower. Going 3 days between showers isn't recommended. Eep!

Can men’s natural deodorant handle intense workouts and sports activities?

Natural deodorant is no slacker when it comes to handling the sweat-soaked challenges of your active lifestyle. Sure, you might still work up a sweat during your epic workouts—after all, you're a beast in the gym or on the field—but natural deodorant stays put to keep the stink producing bacteria at bay. Fighting off the odour-causing bacteria while you conquer the world, one deadlift at a time.

How often do men need to reapply natural deodorant throughout the day?

Typically, a morning application of all natural deodorant will keep you fresh for the entire day. But hey, if you're a real go-getter, a midday touch-up won't hurt. Just a quick swipe, and you're back to smelling like a hero.

How long does it take to adjust to natural deodorant for men? 

Ah, the adjustment period- when your underarms and natural deodorant get to know each other. Now, it varies from person to person, but give it a couple of weeks, and you'll be in sync. Your underarms might go through a detox phase, bidding farewell to old chemical-laden pals. But once that's over, you'll be waltzing through the day with natural confidence, smelling like a champ.

Will natural deodorant irritate men with sensitive skin?

As much as I love natural deodorant, there’s a lot of brands out there that do cause irritation. Bicarb is the most effective bacteria fighter, but it does cause redness and irritation in a lot of men if used in high amounts. That’s why we only use the right amount of bicarb in our mens natural deodorant. Enough to fight bacteria, but not so much that your armpits will erupt in a fiery rash. We use bacteria fighters like Magnesium Hydroxide and essential oils work in synergy with bicarb. Minimising irritation and keeping your armpits free from irritation and smell.

Is natural deodorant suitable for men with excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)?

Natural deodorant might not be the ultimate cure for hyperhidrosis, but it can definitely lend a helping hand. While it won't stop the floodgates opening, it's like having a trusty umbrella in a rainstorm. It'll keep you fresher and more comfortable, even during those intense sweat sessions.

Are there any specific ingredients to look for or avoid in mens natural deodorants?

Absolutely! When it comes tonatural deodorants for men, there are a few key ingredients to keep an eye out for and a couple to avoid like the plague. Let's break it down:

Look For These Good Ingredients:

  1. Baking Soda: A superstar ingredient that helps combat odour-causing bacteria. Great, but only in small amounts.
  2. Magnesium Hydroxide: Baking sodas side kick. Neutralises bacteria without causing irritation.
  3. Arrowroot Powder: Helps absorb moisture and keeps you feeling dry.
  4. Essential Oils: Not only do they add delightful scents, but some also have antibacterial properties.
  5. Coconut Oil: Known for its moisturising properties, it helps keep your underarms happy and hydrated.
  6. Jojoba Oil. Moisturising and antibacterial. Really helps keep your armpits in tip top shape.

Avoid These Ingredients:

  1. Aluminium: It's a big no-no. Natural deodorants steer clear of this ingredient commonly found in antiperspirants.
  2. Parabens: These sneaky preservatives can disrupt your body's delicate balance, so it's best to avoid them. May be found in some brands of natural deodorant.
  3. Phthalates: These chemicals, often found in fragrances, can be irritating and potentially harmful. May be found in some brands of natural deodorant.
  4. Synthetic Fragrances: Opt for natural deodorants with essential oils instead. Synthetic fragrances can be a source of skin irritation and unwanted chemicals.

How does the price of men’s natural deodorant compare to conventional deodorants?

While natural deodorants can sometimes be a tad pricier, think of it as an investment in your health and well-being. You see, conventional deodorants often contain cheaper, synthetic ingredients that may come at a lower cost. A quality mens natural deodorant, on the other hand, is craftedwith high-quality plant-based ingredients, which can drive up the price a bit. Remember though, one tin of Arluka natural deodorant last 4-5 months on average. So while the initial cost is higher, it does last a long time!

Is it normal to smell with natural deodorant?

Yes, and No. It's normal to experience some odour when you first start using natural deodorant for men. Natural deodorants work differently than antiperspirants and may require your body to adapt. Give it time and keep your underarms clean. If after 2-3 weeks you still smell consider trying some different brands to find the one your body works best with.

Is natural deodorant for men more effective than antiperspirant?

Ah, the battle of freshness! Natural deodorant for men and antiperspirants each have their own superpowers. Antiperspirants reduce sweat by blocking sweat glands with aluminium and chemicals. Natural deodorants neutralise odour-causing bacteria. So, if you're looking to control sweat, antiperspirants have the upper hand. But for a chemical-free, odour-fighting experience, natural deodorants are the go-to. It's all about choosing what's most important to you—stay dry or stay natural! I find natural deodorant controls odour far more effectively than regular big brand antiperspirants.

What is the best natural deodorant for men?

After trialling most of the natural deodorants on the Australian market we crafted Arluka to be the best natural deodorant for men. Others tended to be irritating or ineffective. Arluka natural deodorant is formulated to give a great balance between being low irritation yet highly effective at controlling body odour. Of course, there’s numerous mens natural deodorants in Australia. Finding the best natural deodorant that works for you may be a matter or trialling a few brands to find one that you love.

Why do I smell better with natural deodorant for men?

Natural ingredients such as magnesium, bicarb and essential oils neutralise odour by balancing Ph. This reduces the growth of bacteria which convert sweat into nasty smelling compounds. So while you will still sweat, your sweat will no longer smell. This means a reduction in body odour and better smell.
