Are You Looking For An Organic Deodorant?

Today, I am reviewing an awesome organic product from Wild Hippo on Etsy. I have been looking for an organic deodorant that works and does not cause my sensitive skin to break out. Most deodorants I have tried make me itch like crazy. I have only found one other deodorant that does not cause me to itch or break out. I really did not like buying that brand because, it was not completely organic, and it was terribly expensive. So as you can imagine, when Wild Hippo asked me to review their Organic Deodorant, I jumped right in.

The deodorant is handmade and comes in a 1/2-pint-sized glass jar. The jar fills a 2.5 ounce deodorant stick three times. If you do not have an empty deodorant stick lying around to fill, you can order a starter kit. The starter kit comes with a refillable deodorant stick and one 1/2-pint jar of deodorant. Wild Hippo offers three scents: lemon, melaleuca (tea tree), and unscented. I chose to review the unscented version. Stop over and check out her scents and if you are not interested in the available scents you can contact Wild Hippo, and they will be happy to create a custom order for you. 
When I received the deodorant, I scooped some out and pressed it in my empty deodorant stick, and it was ready to go. The deodorant is creamy in texture and glides on like any other stick deodorant. Because there are no chemicals in this product, it can melt at temperatures higher than 76 degrees Fahrenheit. I did not find this to be a problem, as my bathroom is not heated and stays fairly cool during the winter months. In the summer, I may have to keep it in the refrigerator. I simply love this deodorant! It works just like any other deodorant without all the unnecessary ingredients. I have been wearing the deodorant for about three weeks now, and I have no complaints. This product is organic,  Food-grade, aluminum-free, and hypoallergenic.It also complements a vegan, vegetarian, or paleo lifestyle. 

Wild Hippo has a wide selection of organic, vegetarian, vegan, and paleo baked goods to offer. They are the creators of the original date bite of which I had the opportunity to taste. The date bites are quite delicious and make healthy snack that is naturally sweet. 
Oh yes, There is one more item to mention. The organic, gluten-free chocolate chip cookies are so tasty my sons fought over the last few cookies we had to sample.  

I received the above mentioned products to review from Wild Hippo in exchange for an honest review.


  1. Thanks for the great review! I'm glad the deodorant is gentle on your skin. I will have to send more treats for you to sample!

  2. I am huge into organic as you know!! I haven't been wearing deoderant because I don't want to put any toxins into my body. This sounds like a great product for someone like myself!!

    Thanks so much for a great review, I am headed over now to check them out

    1. I totally agree. I really like this deodorant. It looks like the jar will last me a long while.

  3. This sounds really interesting. I recently had a reaction to a clinical deoderant and was unable to wear deoderant for a week. Thank goodness it is winter! I still have two scars under one armpit and it's been a couple of weeks (it was a truly awful reaction!) I'll have to look more into their site.

  4. For the last few years I have tried many different organic deodorants. None have worked well for me though. I will have to look into this.

  5. Now that is just neat. Who'd of thought to use refillable deodorant. Genius. I use organic deodorant myself and would love to try this brand as well. Thank you so much for sharing.
