Schmidt’s Natural Deodorants With No Baking Soda Specially Made For Sensitive Skin

Schmidt's Natural Deodorant Sensitive Skin Formula
Remember Schmidt’s Natural Deodorants that I reviewed in Nov 2014? The one whose finger-applying-deodorant concept I’d called primitive? Well, this is one brand that has been taking their customers’ feedback seriously.

Today, you can stick a Schmidt’s Natural Deodorant under your arms and just roll on. Yes, no more digging your finger into the jar and spreading the cream onto your armpit.

But you still can if you want to because the jar formulas are still available. I’m just guessing more people like the idea of using sticks for roll on application.

No baking soda
And if your skin can’t handle baking soda, you’ll like this: Schmidt’s has also gone ahead to introduce three no baking soda formulas for sensitive skin! How awesome is that?

I’d like Schmidt’s Natural Deodorants when I first tried the range. They smell great and were highly effective…something really precious for natural deodorants.

But I just wasn’t too motivated to use them again even when they came in stick formulas. While my skin isn’t sensitive, I can’t deal with baking soda formulated deodorants on a long term basis.

So I was delighted when I stumbled upon Schmidt’s Sensitive Skin Deodorant Sticks at iHerb. Of course I quickly added them to my shopping cart.

Trio for sensitive skin
The brand has introduced a trio for sensitive skin: one is fragrance-free, one is tea tree oil, and one is geranium. Naturally, I picked the last because that’s my favorite scent.

The first thing that struck me about Schmidt’s Geranium Sensitive Skin Deodorant is the fabulous geranium scent. It was love at first sniff.

But I was a little leery that the sensitive formula may be too mild for my armpits. Good thing my concerns were allayed and I’ve used the deodorant for about two months now.

So far, nothing embarrassing has happened but I’ll say the Tea Tree formula holds longer than the Geranium one. The Geranium one is good for 10 to 12 hours but that’s provided you don’t perspire much. If you do, a second application might be needed.

Ingredient list of Schmidt’s Geranium Sensitive Skin Deodorant:
Magnesium hydroxide, Cocos Nucifera (coconut) Oil, Maranta arundinacea (arrowroot) powder, Butyrospermum parkii (shea butter), Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (fractionated coconut oil), Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Euphorbia Cerifera (candelilla) Wax, Tocopherol (vitamin E), Essential oil (none in Fragrance-Free)

I’ve no idea how the Fragrance-Free formula holds up as I’ve not used it. I’m guessing it’ll work like the Geranium formula at best.

Both the Schmidt’s Geranium and Tea Tree Sensitive Skin Deodorants are drying upon application. But I found the Geranium formula clumps up at the end of the day. I can feel bits of the deodorant when I wash my armpits while bathing. I suppose that’s why the effectiveness starts to wear off at the end of the day.

Effectiveness & pricing
If you were to ask me, Schmidt’s Sensitive Skin Deodorants are less effective compared to the original formulas with baking soda. But if your skin is sensitive to baking soda, then you’ll most definitely need the no baking soda formula. At least it works better than most natural deodorants.

You can also give the travel sized sticks a try. Schmidt’s Natural Deodorant, Sensitive Skin Formulas in travel sizes cost S$10.90 at Living Naturally Co. Full sized is S$19.90. You can also find the full sized sticks at iHerb at a lower price of S$15.68 or US$11.

Vegan and non-toxic formula
Here’s some background for those who are learning about this brand for the first time:

Schmidt’s Deodorants are vegan, cruelty-free and uses ingredients which are completely free of aluminum, propylene glycol, paraben, and phthalates. The formula is supposed to be effective at neutralizing underarm odor and absorbing wetness but because Schmidt’s isn’t an antiperspirant, it will not prevent you from perspiring but it should still help to keep you dry.

    Thanks for the review! What’s the best natural deodorant in your opinion, one that actually keeps you dry and not smelling like sweat!! I remember reading a post about it once but I can’t find it now ! Thanks in advance!

  2. JackieA says:

    Hello Sesame! Thank you for this review – I must give it a spin! Whilst I am a light sweater(!), my girls are the opposite however, worth a try!

    great post thanks for sharing

  4. Kate says:

    Ooh. This has been on my wish list for so long but I’m worried about the baking soda in the deodorant. Seems like it’s time to give it a try!

  5. Sesame says:

    I like this one: from Real Purity. I got it from iHerb…they don’t apply very dry but it really works to prevent any embarrassment. They’ve also improved the formula to be less sticky.

    Schmidt’s Tea Tree formula that I feature here is also quite good. I’ve so far not had a problem with smelling like sweat.

  6. Sesame says:

    Try the tea tree formula…it’s the best.

  7. Sesame says:

    Hope it’ll work well for you.

    I enjoy that typographic touch to natural deodorant with huge herbal product information.

    As much as I love the idea of natural deodorant, none of them actually make a difference for me. Especially during the summer months, my sweat is out of control. I’ve always had issues with over-sweating my entire life. A few months ago I read an article about different deodorants and junglejuice was listed on there. I was hesitant to stray away from the norm but I knew I needed a deodorant with an extra kick to it. I’ll tell you this stuff is amazing. It stays on even after my outdoor workouts in the summer heat! Now I can work all day and then run to happy hour with the girls without feeling self-conscious the entire time.
