Twinkle Apothecary

Deodorant ūüí¶

$ 1.00

A no-frills natural deodorant with a gentle, luxurious texture that works to absorb moisture and control the bacteria that causes under-arm odor, packaged in a biodegradable push-up tube. 

Fun fact: Twinkle Apothecary was founded on this deodorant formula in 2015 and we still stand behind it, 1000%! 

Arrowroot flour, tapioca flour, shea butter, organic virgin coconut oil, candelilla wax, wildcrafted grapeseed oil, kaolin clay, baking soda, non-gmo tocopherol oil (vitamin E,) an essential oil for fragrance. 

  • A nourishing and luxuriously creamy formula that leaves you feeling powdery-fresh, never sticky!¬†
  • Packaged in a recycled and recyclable, biodegradable push-up paperboard tube.¬†The minis are generous samples sizes, packaged in glass jars with metal lids.
  • Lavender¬†has a sweet, light, and clean herbal scent with anti-bacterial and skin-soothing properties, making it a perfect choice for sensitive, acne-prone skin. It's said to have calming, stress-relieving aromatherapeutic properties that reduce anxiety and promote deep sleep.
  • Pink grapefruit¬†has a bright, juicy, and sweet citrus scent, with skin brightening and toning properties. Pink grapefruit energizes and uplifts the senses and is said to relieve depression. It's a beautiful way to start the day!
  • Ylang ylang¬†has a strong, pretty floral fragrance that's rich, creamy, and exotic, with oil balancing and anti-aging properties. Ylang ylang is said to calm frustration and have natural aphrodisiac properties. It's a soothing, romantic choice for day or night.
  • Patchouli¬†has a deep, earthy, sweet scent, with anti-inflammatory, balancing, and astringent properties, making it an excellent choice for everything from oily to mature skin types. Patchouli is said to have a grounding, calming aromatherapy effect that will keep you feeling balanced and steady.

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 - if you apply too much it could get messy/clumpy. Just use your fingertips to rub in any excess product! 

Mini 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.  

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

This deodorant does contain baking soda, which some people are sensitive to, but it's a small amount. Many customers report that they can use this formula, while other natural brands cause a rash!

The Twinkle Apothecary sensitive formula deodorant was discontinued in January 2022 because most of our customers prefer the original formula. Always start with a sample to see how it works for you before investing in a tube. 

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

Will this stop me from sweating?

No. This is a deodorant, not an antiperspirant. Besides, your body was made to sweat! 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. Our After Shave Mist is a great way to freshen up your underarms in-between showers too!   

Is there an adjustment period when transitioning to natural deodorant? 

Every body is different, but the main adjustment we find customers struggling 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!

$24.99 for deodorant? Really? 

Yes! These are still handcrafted in small batches (8 tubes at a time) by the Twinkle Apothecary founder, Stefanie, using the finest high quality and nourishing all-natural ingredients. You're paying for the healthy ingredients, expensive biodegradable packaging, and labor - not just for pouring the deodorant, but also washing and sanitizing the dishes, designing, printing, and applying the labels, product photography, writing the website copy, (hello!) answering customer service emails, and physically packaging and shipping the products to you.

Yes, it's a lot, but no complaints here - because staying small means never having to compromise on quality. These products will never contain any potential harmful or irritating ingredients that you often find in mass-produced personal care items. And because they are actually effective, a little goes a long way. This tube should last you between 6-8 weeks, or longer, depending on how often you reapply! That's about $.50/day to have happy, good smelling underarms while supporting a small, independent, ethically minded business. Worth it!

    I recommend everyone start with the Travel Skincare Set ($69) to get a generous sample of a complete Twinkle routine. (Cleanse, tone, moisturize.)

Travel-Proof Deo

I don't travel without a twinkle apothecary deodorant mini. It's so easy to refill and reuse, too. Instead of constantly buying plastic deodorant minis, or shoving you big normal-size deodorant stick in your toiletry bag, just buy a full-size tube (in the biodegradable packaging!) and scoop some off the top to put in the mini to travel with. Voila!

Christina R.

The scent wasn’t really there… maybe it was because I got a mini to try it? The sensitivity level was great though! It went on nicely, but I also didn’t feel like it was as effective as some other natural deodorants

Jordan H.
Simple yet effective

The Ylang Ylang scent is subtle as if it’s just for me. I always love this brand due to low waste forms of a package. This is gentle on freshly shaved skin and is a good buy!

Linda J.
Patchouli sensitive deodorant

Loving this Patchouli deodorant. The scent is great, it feels good going on and I love that there is an option for no baking soda in the ingredients, and mostly that it doesn't come in plastic. So glad I found this company, thank you Twinkle Apothecary!

Not for me

This smelled great! Unfortunately my armpits are just really sensitive and break out.
