This sustainable line is entirely plastic free and eco-friendly! It's the smart choice for your body and for the planet.
For some people, the baking soda in this super-strength formula is the perfect option for controlling odor. For others with baking soda sensitivities (and generally sensitive skin), the sensitive formula is just as effective but gentler on the skin. Click here to explore SmartyPits Sensitive Skin.
Biodegradable (packaging too)
Propylene Glycol Free
Not Tested On Animals
Made in Bend, Oregon, USA
For every stick sold, SmartyPits donates 1% of the sale to breast cancer research & survivor support.
WHAT DOES IT REPLACE? Aluminum-based antipersperants and other 'eco' brands in plastic packaging. Studies have linked the aluminum in antiperspirants to breast cancer (as well as Alzheimer’s Disease).
BORING (BUT USEFUL) STUFF Instructions: Apply to clean, dry underarms. Make sure deodorant has completely absorbed before putting on clothing.
Tip: After swiping, use back of hand to rub in. Good for all skin. :)
Super-Strength is available in these scents: Unscented is as they say, not scented. So if you're scent adverse, this is for you. That said, all the scents are natural and subtle. Lavender Bergamot scent is a darker, fuller floral with a hint of citrus. Ginger Lime scent is a more neutral scent with both brightness and depth. Grapefruit Cardamom scent is a bright citrus scent with a dash of spiciness. Charcoal scent is subtle hints of tea tree essential oil.
Your sweat is naturally odorless. But odor causing bacteria living on your skin thrives on that sweat and metabolizes it, leading to smelly underarms.
By studying the biological causes of body odor, SmartyPits developed a formulation that attacks the root cause on three levels:
A blend of vegetable based powders and oils help to absorb & wick away wetness, separating it from your skin with a moisturizing barrier
Mineral ingredients like baking soda neutralize the environment where the odor-causing bacteria thrives
Prebiotics (plant-based food for good bacteria) contribute to the biodiversity & strength of your skin microbiome
The result is all-day odor control with just one application.
But skin care isn't one-size-fits-all. Each of our bodies is the product of subtle differences in our genetic makeup, environment, diet, state of health, level of activity, and stage of life.
For some people, the baking soda in this super-strength formula is the perfect option for controlling odor. For others with baking soda sensitivities (and generally sensitive skin), the sensitive formula is just as effective but gentler on the skin.
SMARTYPITS TIP: Our super-strength formula contains baking soda – but if you need a baking soda free version of this scent, no problem! We've got it.

ABOUT THE COMPANY When founder Stacia Guzzo’s mother discovered she had breast cancer, it was through noticing a lump directly underneath her armpit. She had no family history of breast cancer or noted genetic predisposition, so Stacia began to do some research to learn more about breast cancer and its risk factors. That was the first time she learned about studies which linked the aluminum in antiperspirants to breast cancer (as well as Alzheimer’s Disease).At the time, Stacia tried to go aluminum-free herself—but it was a struggle. A dedicated “clinical strength” antiperspirant user, Stacia needed something that controlled odor all day, had a smoother application, smelled great, and felt convenient to use.
She didn’t find anything on the market that hit all those marks...
...so a few years later after studying skin care formulation, she created one herself. It would take a few years of trial and error to perfect, but SmartyPits was originally born on a tiny kitchen stovetop in 2014.
SmartyPits is proudly aluminum free, paraben free, phthalate free, and propylene glycol free; in addition, SmartyPits donates 1% of all sales to breast cancer research and free deodorant to oncology centers, survivor support events and non-profit groups.
We're also thankful to share that Stacia's mom is now a 13 year cancer warrior and survivor.
