Effective, simple ingredients, sustainable packaging, geography of manufacturing, price point and accessibility; all of these points are important when choosing a deodorant. Of course for a deodorant to be cruelty free tops our list of priorities. During our comprehensive research we have been pleasantly surprised by how many brands offer cruelty free deodorants as part of their body care ranges.

To help you choosing a cruelty free deodorant we checked all cruelty free body care brands we could find and selected the top rated cruelty free deodorants from their lines. The geography of brands is very wide, there is a local brand for everybody. Please consider choosing locally made, sustainably packaged and cruelty free deodorants.

Not many customers plan ahead when buying a deodorant, unlike skincare or perfumes. Buying a deodorant is usually a part of a weekly shopping routine, and this is where it gets difficult. The majority of brands available in supermarkets are not cruelty free, therefore planning ahead and possibly ordering cruelty free deodorants online is a key to finding the right product.
