Looking for a cruelty-free and vegan deodorant that actually works? You’re not alone. This has been one of the most requested guides by many of you!
So, I’ve done the research for you, and here’s a round-up of 10 best of the best vegan deodorants that actually work!
Most of the deodorant brands you find at the store are from companies that test on animals including Degree, Axe, Old Spice, Arm & Hammer, and Gillette.
In addition, some deodorants may contain ingredients derived from animal sources like animal-based stearic acid, glycine, and royal jelly. Manufacturers often don’t disclose the source of their ingredients on the product packaging so it’s difficult to know with certainty whether a product is vegan just by reading the ingredient list.
All of the deodorants listed in this guide have been verified as being truly cruelty-free using our Cruelty-Free Checklist. And they’ve all been verified as being vegan and don’t contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products.
Whether you’re looking for a vegan deodorant that doesn’t contain aluminum or baking soda and you prefer a roll-on, stick, or plastic-free option, there’s something for you in this list!

Thanks for your blog. Over the past 2 years I’ve been going Cruelty-Free. It’s been slow going trying out different things. But I’ll definitely be checking back for more recommendations.
Thank you for this! I heard Schmidt’s was bought by Unilever, though, which is such a bummer 🙁 I’m definitely going to look into the other ones!
I am interested.
Dove claims not to test on animals and claims to have not done so in 30 years. You may want to remove their name from your examples above if that is the case.
Fantastic info. Thank u much🙏
