About Twinkle Apothecary

Everyday luxury

This nourishing and creamy vegan formula leaves you feeling powder-y fresh, with a magically herbaceous, floral, woodsy scent.

Will it stop you from sweating? No. Will it be the most luxurious thing to ever happen to your armpits? YES. 

The star ingredient: ethically harvested, wild-grown Australian sandalwood powder. This gives the deodorant a lovely beige color, a mellow, warm, woody scent, and extra protection from body odor thanks to sandalwood's natural anti-bacterial properties. Not to mention that it's one of my absolute favorite smells, ever!  

Because why shouldn't your deodorant be as beautiful as your perfume? That's the question that led to making my first deodorant and founding Twinkle Apothecary in 2015.

Try a $5 sample and I think you'll see why store-bought brands can't compete. 

The scent 

Deodorant is naturally scented with my signature body care fragrance - a refreshing and fancy blend of clary sage, rose, lavender, and copaiba balsam. (Clary sage pictured on product cover photo.) 

It's herbal, tea-like, a bit woodsy, and a lot magical, with seriously uplifting aromatherapy benefits.

Ingredients 

Arrowroot flour, tapioca flour, shea butter, organic virgin coconut oil, candelilla wax, wildcrafted grapeseed oil, baking soda, Australian sandalwood powder, non-gmo tocopherol oil (vitamin E,) essential oil fragrance blend

 essential oil fragrance blend ingredients: copaiba balsam, clary sage essential oil, high elevation lavender essential oil from France, spike lavender essential oil from Spain, organic lavender essential oil from France, lavender Maillette essential oil from France, rose de Mai absolute, Moroccan rose absolute, Bulgarian rose absolute,  geranium absolute, linden blossom CO2, organic wintergreen essential oil, organic grape spirits, fractionated coconut oil

Instructions

Tube: Push product up from the bottom of the tube and apply 1-2 strokes to your underarms as you would any other deodorant. A little goes a long way - use your fingertips to rub in any excess product. 

Jar: Scoop out a small amount and rub between your fingertips to soften. Rub it into your underarms or use it anywhere. It works well as a moisture-absorbing foot cream or for chafing protection on the inner thighs. 

Layer: For odor extra protection, try layering your deodorant over an application of pink himalayan salt, using one of these heart shaped crystals.  

Product FAQs

I have sensitive skin. Will this deodorant cause a rash? 

This deodorant does contain baking soda, which some people are sensitive to, so always start with a sample to see how it works for you. 

If you know you don't tolerate baking soda at all, try the salt heart crystal combined with toner as a natural deodorant alternative.

Will this stop me from sweating?

No. This is a deodorant, not an antiperspirant. Deodorant helps absorb sweat and control the bacteria that causes odor, but it's not a magical, permanent solution. If you get sweaty, simply re-apply. 

Is there an adjustment period when transitioning to natural deodorant?  

Every body is different, but the main adjustment I find that people struggle with is simply getting used to the feeling of having sweat or moisture on their underarms after years of antiperspirant use. It may take time to get used to the differences between conventional products and natural alternatives, but stick with it. Your body and the earth will thank you.

Simple hardworking natural deodorant

I've used only this deodorant for many years now, jumping around different scents back in the day, and now the current scent and formula is my favorite! It works so well, one tube lasts me a decent amount of time and the scent is just so fresh and lovely. During the boiling summer months, I will use the body powder after deodorant to help boost the deodorant's power because, well, Oklahoma summers.

Yay, I love to hear it! Thanks so much for the awesome review!

Works but smell didn't agree with my pregnant nose

Full Disclaimer: This is a 'me' problem, not the deodorant's problem. I started using this before I was pregnant and the smell didn't bother me at all. Once I got pregnant I couldn't stand the smell so I had to quit using it. It worked better when using a salt crystal then the deodorant.

Oof, I have been there! Hopefully your nose will return to normal soon. Sending well wishes for a comfortable pregnancy!

The Best vegan deodorant

I have always used antiperspirant and was leery that deodorant would work. I read the Twinkle Apothecary reviews which were very helpful. I hope my review will also. Excellent, it works extremely well. I am a dog walker so I'm. outdoors every day. Definitely try this deodorant.

Amazing! Deodorant was the first thing I ever made, and the whole reason I started Twinkle Apothecary, so when I see reviews like this I think: SUCCESS! Hooray! Thank you for sharing your experience!

Subscriptions

The Surprise Scent Monthly, Off the Menu, and Collect them All Club subscriptions work the same way. To sign up, place your order by the 14th of each month by 12 pm US central time. The boxes (or envelopes) will ship on the 15th, or next business day if the 15th falls on a weekend or holiday.

Ordering after the 14th at noon puts you on the list for the next month's box.

Example: To sign up for a January Subscription box, you can order anytime between December 14th at 12:00 pm - January 14th at 11:59 am.

Ordering on January 14th at 12:00 pm or after will sign you up for the February box.

What's in the next box: The next month's Off the Menu item and a hint for the upcoming Surprise Scent will be revealed on the respective product pages after the 14th at noon each month. Be sure to check the product pages on the afternoon of the 14th to see what's in the next month's box, especially if you are not subscribed to my email list or push notifications!

You will always be charged for the next month's box each month on the same day (and exact time) that you placed your original order. If you would like to cancel or skip a month, you'll need to do so before your charge date. If you are not able to cancel before you're charged, simply email me to be refunded any time before I make the products on the afternoon of the 14th.

If you sign up for multiple subscription boxes (fun!) I will ship them all together to you on the 15th and refund any excess shipping fees.

For regular subscribe-and-save recurring product orders, your item will ship within 1-5 business days from the time you place your order.

Split-shipment policy: If you are ordering other, non-subscription items at the same time as your subscription box (Off the Menu, Surprise Scent, Collect Them All Club,) and you would like to receive your non-subscription items before the 15th, please place a separate order. I can only double-ship your order if the other items in your order qualify for free shipping on their own. If you've ordered enough to qualify for free shipping but want me to hold the other items to ship at the same time as your subscription products, great! Feel free to leave a note with your order and let me know!

All subscriptions are self-service.

How to cancel: You may cancel your order any time before your next charge date by logging into your account and clicking on the "My Subscriptions" button. If you are unable to cancel before you're charged, please email me to be refunded ASAP, before I make and ship your product. I cannot refund products that have already been made and/or shipped.

If you are unable to access your account for any reason, please email me and I'm happy to help.
