An Effective Deodorant That Feels Like a Lotion

Do you dream about deodorant?

In the past year, Handcrafted HoneyBee has made and sold over 10,000 natural probiotic deodorants—right here in our Tehachapi, CA studio. That’s a lot of measuring, melting, blending & pouring.

You can bet there were some nights that my head hit the pillow thinking about nothing. But. Deodorant.

You could say that I’m a little obsessed. I spent years perfecting the formulation for a natural deodorant that really, truly works to control odor all day—plus it goes on smooth & features distinctively satisfying scents.

At multi-day live events, people who purchase our deodorant on the first day return to the table the next day to excitedly tell us just how much they love it. Countless online shoppers have signed up to regularly receive deodorant refills when they run out. People have even gifted our deodorant to their loved ones!

The customer response has been off the charts. And customer feedback has been a crucial part of every improvement I have made over to the recipe over the years.

We’ve been listening to you.

You told us stories about the many half-used “natural” brands of deodorant were hiding in your cabinet because they just didn’t work.

And we created the travel-size deodorant, so you could experience the effectiveness of our probiotic deodorant without feeling like it’s a major commitment. We even bundled it up into a sample set, so you could take each of our scents for test run before deciding which you like best! Super smart, right?

You told us how much you wanted to introduce your boyfriend, your husband, your son, your roommate to a natural deodorant with a more manly fragrance.

And we created our Tweed & Spice scent, the perfect blend of masculine class.

You came to us asking for help finding a vegan option, an option for skin sensitivities, or a safe, effective alternative to the old-fashioned deodorant stick.

And so I started formulating that alternative…

Researching ingredients. Experimenting with blends. Tweaking & tinkering. Testing the results across a broad range of bodies and skin types.

Today, I’m so excited to tell you that I’ve found the deodorant you’ve been looking for.

Introducing Probiotic Deodorant Cream!

Announcing our new baking soda free deodorant cream!

Our new baking soda free deodorant cream works just as effectively as our original deodorant formulation, but it feels like a lotion.

Simply apply a dime-sized dollop with the cute little scoop we include, and you’re smelling great all day. We even offer all of the same deodorant scents you've come to love in our original formulation!

Made with a minimum number of basic ingredients, this is the perfect option for someone with skin sensitivities. We start with a base of avocado butter, fractionated coconut oil, arrowroot powder & zinc oxide and infuse it with a shelf-stable acidophilus probiotic to promote optimal skin health & effectively control odor.

You read that correctly. We don’t use beeswax in our new deodorant cream.

That might seem like a strange choice for a company named Handcrafted HoneyBee. But we believe in providing smart skin care choices to women (and men) of all ages. By leaving out the beeswax, our vegan customers can join in the natural probiotic party we’ve got going on here! (And can you imagine just how terrific that party smells?)

Whether you have skin sensitivities, are seeking a vegan deodorant option, or are just looking for something new to try, you can use our new deodorant cream with confidence. You’ll know that you’ve chosen an aluminum-free, paraben-free, phthalate-free and baking soda-free option that actually works. 


You can find six different deodorant cream options in our Smart Deodorant collection. To shop now, visit https://handcraftedhoneybee.com/collections/bsfreedeo!

And if you’ve already tried it, I would be so grateful if you would leave a customer review on the product page.
