Product Information

Ask this Vendor a Question

Make a plastic-free change with a fantastically effective natural deodorant that contains no aluminium salts, no non-natural chemicals ('nasties' as some call them), and no plastic in the package.

Just natural products, with plant oils that nourish the skin and work with the baking soda to keep you from smelling bad. Essential oils then create a lovely lasting fragrance and make you smell good - Lemon & Mint good.

It is highly effective - a light application will keep you free of underarm odours all day.

For mess-free application it is packaged in a push-up cardboard tube that can be composted at home once empty (or buried in the garden to rot down - even if it ends up in a landfill, at least isn't plastic).

Ingredients: tapioca starch, coconut oil, baking soda, candelilla wax, castor oil, grapeseed oil, shea butter, essential oils.

1) Twist cap to break seal
2) Push up from base to expose a small amount of deo stick
3) Hold deo against armpit for a couple of seconds to warm the surface
4) With very little pressure, swipe the stick over the armpit, move sideways and swipe to ensure whole armpit gets an application.

A small number of people are sensitive to the baking soda. If irritation develops (as can happen with any product, natural or otherwise) then reduce or discontinue use. If this is you, we recommend our baking soda-free versions (the Unscented and Cedarwood & Vanilla) - they're a very effective alternative.
Note that over-applying the deo can cause a reaction in some people too. A light application is all you need. Try reducing the pressure / amount.


Made in Wellington.
Two sizes - 28g travel size, 85g regular size (much easier to use due to its width).
The 28g should typically last 2 months with light daily use; the 85g typically 6+ months.
Available in a range of scents and an unscented version - see our other products.



  • I’m so glad I found this! It’s easy to use and very effective. I can only comment on the lemon and mint scent as I like it too much to try any of the alternatives. I really don’t know why I hesitated for so long before switching away from deodorants that use harmful chemicals and unsustainable packaging.....

  • I gave this product a 4/5 because I find it causes a slight irritation - otherwise it would be a 5/5. I've tried two other fragrances in this range and they're great so I highly recommend No. 8 Essentials deodorant, just perhaps beware that the Lemon and Mint fragrance could cause irritation if you're sensitive to such things.

  • The scent is lovely and the formula is great. But my armpits don’t seem to like it, even when I have applied it very thinly

  • I like the packaging, and the price vs amount of product. Have not opened this particular yet to comment on the scent, but if it's the same as the other ones in this range, then it should be fairly pleasant and gentle.

  • Lovely smelling deodorant which seems to be doing it's job! The cardboard tube takes a little getting used to but this is made up for by the fact that it isn't plastic! Looking forward to seeing this available in more places :)

  • This is the best natural deodorant I have ever used and trust me, I've tried many! My armpits have never smelt so good, it lasts all day and is easy to use. I love that it comes in a compostable tube and plan to buy my whole family some for Christmas! Thank you so much for making this product :)

  • This is a awesome product that works way more efficiently than I expected. I’m a total convert and I’m getting friends and family to ditch their spray cans. Cant recommend highly enough. Lasts all day long too no problem.
