Roll-on deodorants have been a part of my skincare-body care routine since my school days. I have even skipped using a moisturizer, but deodorant is a must for me. Sure roll-on deo was my all-time favorite. Lately, since I’m trying to minimize the usage of chemical-based products in my day-to-day life, I was searching for alternative Natural Deodorants.
It was just then that I came to know that antiperspirants and deodorants are different things. Antiperspirants usually contain aluminum compounds that form a thin layer and suppress the skin’s natural ability to sweat. There are speculations that aluminum toxicity is known to be the cause of many health problems. I am someone who tries to follow the “Prevention is better than cure” Mantra. So I try to find the safest products.
On the other hand, Natural Deodorants mask or conceal the unpleasant odor that your body emits. They do not block your skin from sweating off, but rather help to reduce the body odor. It has always been tough to find the right products, especially the natural ones, not every product I try suits me but the thought of completely going back to chemical products never exists to me. After a thorough analysis of the existing market, I’ve compiled this list of the Best Aluminium Free Natural Deodorants in India.
Natural Deodorants are usually made with butter, clays, and essential oils. It should be noted that most natural deodorants use baking soda and essential oils which may not be suitable for sensitive underarms. Kindly do a patch test before using them.
So here comes the List of Aluminum-Free Natural Deodorants available in India.

4. Vilvah Store Deo Shots
Vilvah deodorants are Aluminum-Free Natural Deodorants made with the purest organic ingredients and without any preservatives, additives, synthetic oils, or perfumes. They use 100% essential oils to deodorize body odor.
What I like is that they do not make false claims – they state that their natural scent lasts 3 to 4 hours which is a good thing for a natural product. Personally, I’d recommend the rose variant. They won’t stop you from sweating but they’ll help balance perspiration and keep you smelling fresh.
The Deo Shots have a rich creamy texture but it’s light on the skin and very comfortable to use. They are aluminum-free but the irony is that they come in cute little aluminum tins, which I don’t mind honestly. The tins are recyclable and do not possess any harm.

6. Forest Essentials Natural Deodorant Spray
This brand needs no introduction. Forest Essentials is a pioneer in being one of the authentic, ayurvedic skincare brands of India.

It does not leave sticky or white residues like roll-on deodorants and leaves the skin fresh. The fresh fragrance of lavender essential oil leaves you smelling good for at least a couple of hours.
The product is aluminum-free, cruelty-free, and certified organic. the only con that I think – is it’s a bit overpriced for a deodorant spray. But then Forest Essential is a luxury brand that targets a specific consumer base.
