The “Best” Deodorant Original is a clean and natural preparation that really works! Our deodorant is fully plant-realized with constituents that target odor-causing bacteria safely. While not an antiperspirant, it counteracts the bacteria that causes excessive sweating. This deodorant is primarily composed of a locally sourced organic and biodynamic blend of grape alcohol.
Our deodorant spray dries quickly, leaving only the enlivening botanical aroma of the active ingredients. It is a very concentrated formula, with no water or fillers added.
Did you know The "Best" Deodorant Original also makes a great foot deodorizer? Spray it in shoes or on feet to quickly remove odor.
*Full size lasts a single person about 4-6 months!
Day: Spray 1-2 sprays under each armpit once a day. Usage can depend on preference.
Keep out of eyes. Avoid use after shaving. For external use only.
The Best Deodorant was created in 2002 out of a need for a chemical free preparation that holistically targeted underarm odor. I was particularly interested in a clean formula that would not interfere with glandular elimination. it seemed illogical from a holistic standpoint that we adulterate such a vulnerable area with toxic products that are introduced directly into our bloodstream.
At the time, there were reports out of Marin County, California that women in the area were diagnosed with invasive breast cancer at a rate 40% higher than the national average.There was also compelling research that detected parabens in human breast tumors. Some years later, more research linked aluminum salts to estrogen disruption and breast cancer.
My mission, as always, is to look at the body and how it works, what it absorbs and it's functioning principles. The deodorant needed to allow the eliminatory area to breathe, while introducing agents that would diffuse the odor-carrying bacteria. Although not an antiperspirant, i did address glandular sweat by using botanical with constituents that address this issue, gently and holistically.
Today, as more personal care companies shift away from toxic preservatives, and the European Commission plans to restrict Butyl and Propylparabens from cosmetics, I am proud to have a product that has assisted women's health for over a decade.
It is my great joy and accomplishment to offer you a product that really works. Made directly by our hand and hearts, 100% of the ingredients in our "Best" Deodorant are certified organic and biodynamic.

Hi I am reordering more deodorant after a year - have you repackaged the best deodorant product into the black packaging. I want to make sure I am buying the same deodorant I have for years.
The "Best" Deodorant now has two varieties. The "Best" Doedorant - Original is the same formula our customers have been enjoying for years, while The "Best" Deodorant - Peach is a newer, slightly lighter formula for those who don't require the strength of the Original variety.
I tried a sample on a suggestion from the sales associate at the Embarcadero location. Used it and immediately knew it was for me. It felt good changing to a healthier hygiene option. I’ve tried both original scent lavender and peach. I happen to like peach, but my son likes lavender. I thought the peach scent was subtle, but lavender is also nice and clean (like a gin & tonic). Do be careful not to shave right before applying. It stings a bit. The glass container can break so keep it in the bag if you have tile bathroom floors. Learned that the hard way. It’s probably my favorite go to Benedetta product (that and sacred soap).

All I can say is that the "peach" scent is amazing. The deodorant spray is light, airy and definitely LASTS. This product is natural and good for your bodies immune system. It won't disappoint. Jackie T.
I’ve been using the original scent for a few years. Love it! It smells pleasantly strong when I put it on and it goes away within the hour. Still works great. The peach smells odd. Super strong and I’ll smell like it for hours. Hate it. Have nearly a whole bottle will not use it anymore.
Thank you for your honest review! Sorry to hear that you are not happy with the scent of the product. Hopefully your review will help others with their purchasing decision.
I have to admit that I was hesitant to try because peach seemed like an unusual scent for deodorant. I found it pleasantly light and gentler on my skin than the lavender deodorant which I also like. I plan to repurchase. It's definitely not as potent if you plan to use it and exercise or if you sweat excessively.
