Soapy Gnome Deodorant: Gnome More Stinky!Soapy Gnome
A natural deodorant that really works!
Our new deodorant works great! It's a natural, aluminum free, baking soda free formula. Two awesome deodorizing ingredients make this deodorant effective: zinc ricinoleate and magnesium hydroxide.
Your sweat doesn't smell, the bacteria that break down the sweat is what smells yucky. Zinc ricinoleate is naturally derived from castor oil. It traps and absorbs the odoriferous molecules that bacteria make as they break down sweat.
Magnesium hydroxide keeps odor causing bacteria at bay without stripping the natural moisture barrier of your skin or altering the natural pH of your skin. Making it a safer option than baking soda for most people.
While this is a deodorant and not an antiperspirant, it is effective even with the unscented version! You will still sweat while using this deodorant, but the arrowroot powder and magnesium hydroxide help absorb wetness.
Finding a natural deodorant that works can feel like a challenge, but ours is up to the task of your stinky pits!
Our unscented deodorant works well, but if you'd like a little bit of scent choose the scent that works best with your body chemistry. Soapy Gnome's deodorant is lightly scented and not too overpowering.

What is the texture like?
These are slightly softer than most deodorants. We recommend only scrolling the bar up to the top of the plastic tube so you don't apply too much.
How do I store my deodorant?
You can keep it on the counter in the bathroom or bedroom. If you prefer a harder bar, you could keep it in the refrigerator.
Will this keep me from getting sweaty?
No, this is a deodorant, not an antiperspirant. When using the deodorant for the first time, compare it with other natural deodorants, not commercial antiperspirants.
How much is shipping?
$7.99 for any size order.
How strong are the scents?
All of the deodorants are lightly scented. Some you may not even smell until you put it on your skin.
Why doesn't this product have baking soda?
Baking soda is very alkaline while our skin is slightly acidic. Baking soda does a great job at keeping the stink producing bacteria at bay, but it can wreak havoc on your skin in a few ways. It changes the pH of your underarms which can allow Candida to grow. It also strips away the moisture layer of your skin causing rashes or welts. If you're able to use baking soda without harm, awesome! But most of us have sad pits when we use it.
What should I do if I get a rash or irritation when using this deodorant?
Stop using right away and contact your doctor with your concerns. Also, message us so we can track any irritation our customers have. We suggest doing a patch test before use, especially if you have sensitive skin or allergies.
What if I have comments, questions or concerns?
Please email hello@SoapyGnome.com with any questions, comments, or concern or call 574-971-5294 during business hours. We'd love your feedback!
