Originally found in 2010 by Jaime Schmidt in Portland, Oregon, Schmidt’s is a company that wanted to create plant-based natural deodorants that were not only effective at reducing body odor but also smelled great, too. Over the next several years, they would end up doing quite well with their products. In fact, they were able to capture the interest of Michael Cammarata in 2015, a partnership which allowed the company to climb to new heights. Nowadays, it’s a company that’s fairly well known for creating great natural products that fulfill the dream of its founder. Below are the top ten Schmidt’s deodorants currently available.
Best Schmidt’s Deodorants
10. Schmidt’s Rose & Vanilla
Rose and vanilla are two scents that you wouldn’t think went together well until you smelled them. These two scents play off of each other quite well, and they’re one of the reasons that this product is the best Schmidt’s deodorant currently available. Its pleasant smell is a natural way to cover up underarm odor. However, it’s not the only ingredients that this product utilizes to great effect. It also uses a variety of other ingredients which eliminate body odor and balance pH levels. These ingredients include baking soda and arrowroot powder to address moisture, and Jojoba seed oil and Shea butter.
9. Schmidt’s Jasmine Tea Sensitive Skin Formula
Jasmine Tea has long been an ingredient used to treat colds because of its antibacterial properties, so it makes sense to put it in a deodorant. That’s because it’s antibacterial properties can be used to fight underarm odor at its source. Of course, that isn’t the only ingredient that can be found in this deodorant and makes it highly effective. Some of the ingredients that can be found in this formula include magnesium hydroxide, coconut oil, arrowroot powder, Shea butter, Jojoba seed oil, vitamin E derived from sunflowers and natural fragrances. It’s a highly effective and nice smell unisex deodorant.
8. Schmidt’s Charcoal & Magnesium
Charcoal and magnesium are two ingredients which are known to combat body odor, so it should be no surprise that when they’re combined together they make a deodorant that stops underarm odor in its tracks. Although this product doesn’t initially go on smoothly in the beginning, after a few uses it does begin to smooth out and becomes easier to apply over time. This is when this product becomes the most effective. Some of the ingredients found in this formulation, aside from charcoal and magnesium, include baking soda, vitamin E, Jojoba seed oil, Shea butter, Candelilla wax, and arrowroot powder.
7. Schmidt’s Geranium Sensitive Skin Formula
People who have sensitive skin need a deodorant that doesn’t contain ingredients that may irritate them, even baking soda. That’s why Schmidt’s created this deodorant for sensitive skin. It’s made with ingredients that have been shown to be easier on the skin and has done away with harmful ingredients such as aluminum or parabens. It doesn’t even have baking soda in its formulation. What it does contain is a blend of natural ingredients which fight odor and wetness without irritating the wearer’s skin. These ingredients include arrowroot powder, geranium essential oils, Shea butter, and Jojoba seed oil.
6. Schmidt’s Lime Bergamot
Just because a deodorant can neutralize odors and deal with perspiration doesn’t mean that it has to contain toxic or unnatural ingredients. And no deodorant proves this more than this one. It’s made to be a non-sticky formula that balances underarm pH levels and quickly eliminates armpit odors. It’s made without using any phthalates, parabens, aluminum or even propylene glycol. What it does contain is a blend of natural ingredients which include vitamin e, sodium bicarbonate, Shea butter, fractionated coconut oil, bergamot peel oil, lime oil, and Jojoba seed oil. It also includes arrowroot powder, an ingredient that absorbs armpit moisture.
5. Schmidt’s Ylang-Ylang & Calendula
Schmidt’s manufactured this product because they believe deodorant should not only cover up underarm odor but should also eliminate it completely. And that’s precisely what this product attempts to do with its formulation. It’s made with sodium bicarbonate, otherwise known as baking soda, an ingredient that’s known for neutralizing odors and balancing pH levels. Other ingredients which can be found in this deodorant include Calendula flower extracts, coconut oil, Shea butter, Candelilla wax, Jojoba seed oil, ylang-ylang essential oils and sunflower derived vitamin E. All of which allows it to handle odor and perspiration and do it while smelling great at the same time.
4. Schmidt’s Lavender & Sage
This all-natural deodorant not only helps to cover up underarm odor like other deodorants tend to do, but it also works to actively eliminate it as well. That’s because it’s made with baking soda to restore the armpit area to a more natural pH level and help to eliminate body odor. This ingredient doesn’t have to work alone, however. It’s also paired with a number of other natural ingredients which help to fight body odor. These ingredients include Jojoba seed oil, Salvia Sclarea oil, vitamin E derived from sunflowers and lavender oil. It also contains ingredients which allow it to go on smoothly, namely coconut oil and Shea butter.
3. Schmidt’s Tea Tree Sensitive Skin Formula
Melaleuca Alternifolia, also known as Tea Tree Oil, is an ingredient that’s widely known for its antibacterial properties, so it should be no surprise that it’s the central ingredient in this Schmidt’s deodorant. After all, what’s better at fighting odor than killing the underlying bacteria that produces the body odor in the first place. However, that’s not the only ingredient in this natural deodorant for sensitive skin. It also has a number of other exciting ingredients that help control underarm perspiration and odor. These ingredients include botanicals such as Maranta Arundinacea, Simmondsia Chinensis, Butyrospermum Parkii, as well as some essential oils.
2. Schmidt’s Coconut Pineapple
This coconut pineapple deodorant is specifically designed to handle the needs of people with sensitive skin. Just because it’s designed to be hypoallergenic doesn’t mean that it can’t handle underarm odor or wetness, because it actually does a good job with both. This product is free of aluminum, parabens, propylene glycol and phthalates, but is capable of handling odor and wetness just fine. It does it using a blend of all-natural ingredients which include arrowroot powder, fractionated coconut oils, Shea butter, candelilla wax, Jojoba seed oil, and natural fragrances. And when applied to the armpit area, it’s never greasy or sticky.
1. Schmidt’s Cedarwood & Juniper
This vegan deodorant is not only not made with animal products but is also made so that it’s completely cruelty-free, which is very assuring to anyone who doesn’t want to use personal hygiene products that are tested on animals. As important as that is, however, it’s not the most impressive thing about this deodorant. What’s impressive about it is that it’s free of aluminum, propylene glycol, parabens, and phthalates, too. It goes on smoothly, never has a sticky feel to it and is easily absorbed by the skin. And it has a cedarwood juniper scent that makes it smell like the great outdoors.
