11 Awesome Plastic Free Deodorant Options

We spend $18 billion each year on deodorant and antiperspirant – imagine if everyone switched to plastic free deodorant! The majority of deodorant on the market today comes in plastic packaging that is made up of many small components. Much of this plastic is hard to recycle and would require the consumer to separate the pieces and research the recyclability of each. 

There’s a much easier option – making the switch to plastic free deodorant! When you run out of deodorant, consider purchasing one of the options below instead of replacing it with another plastic-encased product. 

Plastic free deodorant options

Plastic free deodorant usually comes in one of two forms: a stick in a paper tube or a paste in a glass jar. Both are great, it just depends on your personal preference! Here are ten brands I recommend:


Papr focuses solely on deodorant, so you know you’re getting a good product. They have several scents, all of which come in a paper tube. Bonus: they’re vegan, not tested on animals, and free of aluminium, parabens, and silicone.

    Thanks for the excellent tips. I am keen to tackle travel miles as well so appreciate it when you include the manufacture details. So No pong (Australia) will get an order next. I live the Native scents but USA to Aus is too far. Xxx

    Hi Lisa! You’re very welcome. Thanks for the kind feedback. The name “No Pong” is just too good, in my opinion, not to try! Let me know how it goes for you – Mia x
