As a vegan, we are against the use of beeswax and animal testing. Many deodorants are not vegan because of these two reasons. Before you purchase a natural vegan deodorant at the store, check to see if the company is cruelty-free and if beeswax is one of the ingredients in the label.

Additional criteria for picking a deodorant

A good natural deodorant stick is one that’s made with natural ingredients and doesn’t contain artificial fragrances, aluminum, propylene glycol, parabens, phthalates, sulfates, and talc. Keep reading and I’ll guide you through these ingredients.

Artificial Fragrances & Phthalates

The human body’s hormones make up what is called the endocrine system. Artificial fragrances and phthalates are known as endocrine disruptors. These chemicals are linked with developmental, reproductive, brain, immune, and other problems. Essential oils are a great alternative to artificial fragrances.


This ingredient is primarily used in anti-perspirants to make you sweat less. In case you don’t know, deodorants are different than anti-perspirants. Deodorants are used to eliminate pit odor, whereas anti-perspirants are used to prevent armpit sweating.

Individuals with severe chronic kidney disease should stay away from anti-perspirants. Our bodies sweat to keep your temperature in check and keep us cool. According to Healthline, “there’s no scientific evidence that directly links aluminum to cancers and other health conditions.”

Propylene Glycol

This ingredient is considered GRAS (generally recognized as safe) by the FDA. According to Dr. Axe, “the effects of propylene glycol are rarely negative and generally associated with extremely large, intravenous dosage levels.” In a deep dive on this ingredient, Dr. Axe goes on to say that there are 8 red flags of propylene glycol, which are:

  • respiratory problems
  • cardiovascular problems
  • neurological symptoms
  • probably not safe for infants or pregnant women
  • potentially toxic to kidneys and liver
  • potentially bioaccumulative in certain cases
  • may be a pathway for more harmful chemicals, and cause skin irritation and allergic reactions.

According to Tasha Stoiber, “parabens can disrupt hormones in the body and harm fertility and reproductive organs, can cause skin irritation for those with sensitive skin, affect birth outcomes, and increase the risk of cancer.”


There are two main sulfate derivatives used in deodorant, which are: sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) and sodium laureth sulfate (SLES). The biggest concern is that there’s potential irritation to your eyes, skin, mouth, and lungs.

At the moment, there’s no evidence that these ingredients are linked to cancer, infertility or development issues. It should be noted that these ingredients are found in both plants and petroleum. If you’re concerned, which you probably should be, about climate change, greenhouse gasses, and pollution, it’s advised to avoid these ingredients!


The American Cancer Society said the following:

“It is not clear if consumer products containing talcum powder increase cancer risk. Studies of personal use of talcum powder have had mixed results, although there is some suggestion of a possible increase in ovarian cancer risk. There is very little evidence at this time that any other forms of cancer are linked with consumer use of talcum powder.”

If you’re concerned about it, you should avoid products with this ingredient.
