New and improved! Based on your feedback, we’ve tweaked the scent of this popular deodorant. Expect to find more citrus notes in a formulation that’s just as effective as you’re used to. We hope you love it!
Get ready to smell great, naturally with our Grapefruit Ginger Deodorant. Our roll-on deodorant is a healthy option that works to neutralize body odor without the harmful ingredients found in many regular deodorants and antiperspirants. Each bottle lasts most customers 2 to 3 months.
TRULY free from aluminum, parabens & baking soda, Apothekari deodorants work better because of lactic acid and Deoplex®. Deoplex® is a naturally safe enzyme that neutralizes odors caused by perspiration. It’s combined with lactic acid, a gentle alpha hydroxy acid that helps to maintain your skin’s pH at a level inhospitable to odor causing bacteria.
Your clothes stay protected, too, because there are no waxes in our formulations, which too often leave lingering odors on your clothes.
Speaking of smell, the Grapefruit Ginger essential oil blend is the just the scent you need to get you and your pits off to an invigorating and uplifting start to your day. Enjoy daily life with confidence–including exercise–knowing the only smell you leave behind is one that’s fresh and clean.

Note: Unlike antiperspirants, our deodorant is aluminum free so you will still sweat and feel some wetness. But we are different to other natural deodorants, because our formulation DOES neutralize the odor of sweat without leaving behind any weird “body odor-being-covered-up-by-something” smell.
Alison Gary, Wardrobe Oxygen: I have literally tried dozens of natural deodorants. So many would work well… until they didn’t. But I have been using Apothekari for almost a year and it hasn’t stopped working for me. Right now I am using the Neroli Rose but I also like the Lavender Bergamot. It’s a roll-on that doesn’t leave yellow stains or white marks on clothing and lasts for hours. I love that it’s a small woman-owned business too!
Gina C: I’m loving this deodorant from Apothekari! I’m very skeptical about natural deodorants because I perspire a lot and had always used antiperspirants. Wanting to go more natural, I’ve tried a few natural deodorants and this is by far the best. I can apply in the a.m., go overnight, and work out the next a.m. without having to reapply. I also love the smell. I have scent sensitivities and this citrus-ginger mix doesn’t bother me at all. Super-happy with my purchase.
Jamee: I’m obsessed! I love the way this product smells, and it works like a charm. There was no awkward transition period where my skin needed to adjust. My skin hasn’t become irritated in any way, like with other “natural” products I’ve tried, either. The initial scent is pretty strong, but only for a few minutes. I personally find nothing offensive about the smell of ginger, so I don’t mind it at all. It has worked for 24+ hours for me in the Florida heat, through physical therapy, and through gentle exercise like yoga and dog walking. This is, hands down, the best natural deodorant I have ever tried, and I will absolutely be buying this product again.
Jillian: THIS WORKS! No odour for 24+ hours including a yoga session! I’m blown away by how effective this is, and by how clean and well thought out the formula is. I’m not used to roll-on so that took a couple days to adjust to, but its so much more effective than the solids/creams i was using that it is totally worth it. I’m converted – and i think i have probably tried 90% of the natural deodorants out there over the last 10 years LOL. thank you for creating this.
Carollynn Hanson: I love, love, love Apothekari deodorant! I am allergic to anti-perspirants. I have spent years trying to find a product that works, especially in the hot climate here in Arizona. This deodorant not only works, but keeps me fresh and odor free for over 24 hours! The grapefruit ginger fragrance is lovely and subtle. Thank you, thank you!

If you’re new to our natural deodorant, here are some answers to frequently asked questions and how to use it for optimal efficacy:
Does Natural Deodorant Control Wetness?
Our deodorants are free from aluminum (which stops perspiration) so we are not an anti-perspirant. You will still sweat, but you definitely won’t smell!
How Should I Apply Apothekari Natural Deodorant?
Give the deodorant container a shake and then roll under each armpit. Allow a few minutes to dry before dressing.
How Long Will One Bottle Last?
Everyone is different, so it varies depending on how frequently you use it and how much you apply at one time. With daily roll-on application, we find that one bottle lasts between 2-3 months for most people.
Prep Your Clothes First!
Lingering odors from waxes and oils found in anti-perspirants, natural deodorants, and fabric softeners may be left behind in clothing–causing it to smell even after washing.
If this is the case, you may need to treat the clothing first with an enzymatic detergent before washing. Try doing this before tossing in the hamper. Please don’t blame our deodorant if your clothing smells from old odors!
Do I Need to Detox Before I use Your Natural Deodorant?
Unlike many other deodorants, you do not need a pit detox with Apothekari. Our natural deodorant is baking-soda free, so you don’t need to worry about developing a rash or burn under your arms, which often happens with baking soda.
Baking soda-based deodorants have a high pH (8-9), while your skin is happy at a pH around 5. Our approach respects your skin’s pH and chemistry–ensuring that you won’t experience the irritation often seen with other natural deodorants.
