A natural, sensitive skin underarm cream that works. Made the switch to natural deodorant but struggle with underarm sensitivity from baking soda? We've created a sensitive skin formula that is as gentle as it is effective. Designed without baking soda or clay, this recipe uses dietary magnesium and arrowroot powder to help control moisture and odour. Nourishing plant oils and butters soothe and condition the skin, and a potent blend of essential oils keeps you smelling fresh throughout the day.

We're big fans of cream deodorants, and we brought this baking soda-free version from Meow Meow Tweet into our line because some people have sensitivities to baking soda, also known as sodium bicarbonate.
Baking soda is an effective chemical compound that inhibits bacteria growth due to its salty alkaline properties, but it can cause irritation in sensitive skin. This deodorant uses magnesium hydroxide instead, which helps to balance pH on your underarm skin.
This product is a deodorant and NOT an anti-perspirant; and if you want to understand the difference, Meow Meow Tweet explains it well:
Your skin is naturally acidic, and baking soda and magnesium hydroxide are alkaline- that means that they sort of “level out” (i.e. balance) the environment of your underarms. The bacteria that lives under your arms and feed on your skin’s natural secretions are the odour causing culprits. While anti-perspirants keep you from sweating and thus starve the bacteria, things like baking soda, antibacterial essential oils and magnesium hydroxide just make the armpit an unpleasant place to live for the bacteria – leading to less bacteria and less odour.
The packaging is also plastic-free! There are extremely few – perhaps NONE – zero waste, natural, baking soda-free deodorant choices out there. That work.
Meow Meow Tweet is a small-batch skin care company that creates vegan products with pure, all natural and organic ingredients.
Scoop out a pea-sized amount of deodorant and use your fingers to rub onto underarms until completely clear, covering the entire area. Apply as needed to clean, dry skin. Reapply after bathing or exercise.
If your cream is grainy, simply melt it, mix thoroughly and pop it in the fridge until solid. If your cream is runny or liquified, give it a good mix and pop it in the fridge until solid.
For external use only. Do not apply to broken skin. Do not use if you have any known allergies to the listed ingredients or to any botanicals or essential oils. If you experience a rash that is itchy or painful, discontinue use immediately.
