For a full breakdown of each deodorant visit our guide on ”Which Nala is right for me?” All our deodorants are unisex, safe for all ages, and free-from aluminum, known carcinogens, and toxins. Each formula is unique, as we believe skincare isn’t “one size fits all”:

  • Sandalwood-Bergamot: Our strongest formula with a gentle woodsy smell. Ideal for heavy sweaters and a top seller among men. Use as a daily deodorant or on occasions when you’ll be needing a bit more protection.
  • Lemon-Myrtle Geranium: Light floral/lemon smell. More gentle formula than Sandalwood-Bergamot, excellent everyday deodorant.
  • Peppermint-Charcoal Detox Deodorant: Our most gentle formula and completely baking soda free. Recommended as a transition deodorant for those new to free-from deodorants, but also as great everyday deodorant. Use alone, while detoxing, or in conjunction with one of the other two.

You can also create your own Personalized Deodorant where you can customize by scent and strength (Sensitive Skin, Regular Strength, Extra Strength).

Experiencing a temporary rash can be normal in making the switch to natural deodorant. It is typically caused by the products of baking soda reacting with naturally occurring compounds in sweat, and typically subsides within a few days.

If you are experiencing a rash, take a break from your Nala deodorant for a few days or until the rash clears, then resume with a gentler solution, like ourPeppermint & Charcoal Detoxor any Sensitive Skin option in ourPersonalized Deodorants.

The Peppermint & Charcoal as well as our Sensitive Skin formulations are our most sensitive formula and contain no baking soda. The charcoal also supports the 'flushing out' phase by helping your body rid itself of toxins faster, due to its high absorbency properties. This can make your daytime deodorant more effective.

Additionally, you may be sensitive to specific essential oils, or baking soda in general. If this is the case, consider using just the Peppermint & Charcoal Detox every day.

If you’ve given your pits a break and are still experiencing rashes, get in touch atsayhello@nalacare.comand we’ll guide you through this process, as well as other options for free-from deodorant.

For those that want to dig in on the science:

Baking soda, an ingredient in Sandalwood and Lemon Myrtle deodorants, reacts with the fatty acids and other odour-causing compounds present in our sweat, and neutralizes them by turning them into odourless salts. During the detoxification phase especially, or just in the switch to natural deodorant, you may experience some redness as these salts are produced in reaction with the baking soda. The good news is that your body will self-regulate its sweat production after a few weeks, and once your pits are flushed of toxins, this reaction usually disappears.

For more on the science on sweat, read our Journal post here.

Step 1: Detox

What’s happening: Your pores are clearing/unclogging, and releasing toxins that have accumulated in your armpit. What to expect: Your body may sweat more than usual, and it’s even normal to smell a bit during this stage.

How long it lasts: 1-2 weeks

How to ride it out: Drink lots of water to assist with flushing out the toxins. Use the Detox deodorant at night to help remove toxins while you sleep, or right before you work out when you’ll be sweating a lot anyway.

Step 2: Adjustment

What’s happening: Your armpit has shed ~50% of the toxic particles stored there, and is starting to function more naturally again.

What to expect: Sweating and odour will start to subside (yay!).

How long it lasts: 1-2 weeks. This is just the beginning of the regulation process, so keep using the Detox deodorant every night, while using a free-from deodorant during the day.

Step 3: Acclimatization

What’s happening: Your armpits are well on their way to being free from toxins, and your body is acclimating to a new pattern of self-regulating sweat. What to expect: Odour will subside because the worst offenders (the conglomerated toxins that have been accumulating in your lymph nodes) will have been flushed out. You will sweat less – but you will still sweat. Sweat is a daily detoxification process that our body naturally regulates.

How long it lasts: Ideally, this is a lifelong stage,  as long as you don’t introduce the top offenders back into your pits.

At this point, you can continue to use your detox deodorant until it runs out or simply use your free-from deodorant during the day. Some people find they don’t need the strength of baking soda in their everyday deodorant, and may continue using the Detox deodorant daily.

I love the subtle scent. I have tried A LOT of natural deodorants and this one is a particular favourite. It is gentle on the skin and works very well. So happy to find a Canadian brand that I love.

The best deodorant, ever!

Incredibly wonderful! I have used this deodorant for a few weeks now and it changed the way my body odor responds to sweat . It works!! I’m from Hawaii and purchased this deodorant while staying in Whistler. Now, I purchased online the eucalyptus and can’t wait to try that one. Completely satisfied. 100% recommended! Thankful customer.�

Like the product! The delivery needs to be improved

I’ve been using the product since the summer (a deodorant was given to me in a swag bag attending an event). I really like that it is quick to dry, smells good and works well on my skin. I tried to find a way to buy the product again without going through the delivery process…no luck. Bought it online, quick and easy. Until the delivery…was very challenging. I live in an old building and cannot give access to delivery from distance. Got a call from the delivery man and the first option provided by him was to return the product back to the company. I bought the product because I needed it! The second delivery attempt, luckily I was home. I would suggest to have a delivery system where you can schedule day/time for proper reception. It would reduce the back and forward delivery transiting and the risk to not get your products, especially when you have ABSOLUTELY not other option on where to purchase it.

Making the transition to natural a lot easier!

Really love the two deodorants I recently bought. I've been so hesitant as I've been nervous about the changes your body goes through when you change from toxic deodorant to natural deodorant but Nala made it an easy transition. Super happy with them
