General Questions

Our well-loved Original Formula Deodorant contains only simple ingredients: MCT oil, Beeswax, Non-GMO Cornstarch and Baking Soda. This recipe creates a soft, smooth texture while effectively combating odor.

Due to some customers sensitivity to Baking Soda and the desire to substitute Beeswax with a plant-based ingredient, we crafted our Sensitive Skin & Vegan Formula! This formulation also contains a simple set of ingredients: MCT Oil, Wild-Harvested Candelilla Wax, Non-GMO Cornstarch and Magnesium Hydroxide. It's extra gentle on the skin, but just as tough on odor!

Our PRC fill line is 2.5 net oz and 2.65 net oz for our Paperboard packaging, which are stated on our packaging. Any empty space allows the push mechanism to function.

A little goes a long way with our deodorants. We’ve found that staining occurs from the over-application of our product. We recommend 2-3 swipes to stay fresh all day and rubbing in any excess deodorant with your finger tips. This minimizes the residual deodorant that can attach to clothing and cause staining.

One of our favorite natural stain removal techniques is soaking the affected part of the garment in distilled vinegar and baking soda. This method works best before the garment is laundered.

We tried shipping to Canada and the customer experience was not up to our standards. Many packages were getting lost and never made it to their destination or past Canadian customs. We would love to try again in the future when we can guarantee a better experience for our Canadian customers!

In the meantime, we partner with two fantastic local Canadian retailers who offer online ordering - The Truth Beauty Company & The Eco Den. Our products are also sold in Marshalls and Winners with fluctuating inventory.


Our products are not Certified Organic. We source Organic ingredients when possible but it is also important for us that we keep our products at an affordable price point for our customers.

Yes! All of our products are gluten-free.

We utilize Baking Soda in our Original Formula Deodorant to naturally combat odor. Baking soda has natural antibacterial properties and has an alkaline pH.

In our Sensitive Skin Formula, we've replaced Baking Soda with Magnesium Hydroxide - a naturally occurring mineral with a gentle pH, it minimizes potential skin irritations and effectively neutralizes odor. This is a great option for those who react negatively to baking soda.

Our products are good for 2 years after their manufacture date. 

Fragrances often include a myriad of harsh chemicals that can be irritating to the skin and also have potential health risks. Essential oils are more pure and can provide healing and restorative benefits. The amount that we use is well within the safety guidelines for skin absorption.

We source our essential oils only from select companies who meet our strict standards, and who focus on purity and sustainability. Our product development team is borderline obsessive about choosing essential oils that are of the highest quality and ethically harvested. We do not use essential oils that are on the endangered species list.

Yes! Here is a statement from our Palo Santo distributor: “Since Palo Santo trees are protected, we work with an established company owned by an ethnobotanist committed to protecting this resource. They not only harvest dead fall, but have a nursery with saplings per part of their reforestation project. This project has helped to protect old trees and those newly planted trees with the help of the corresponding authority M.A.E, (Ministry of the Environment). In fact our source of Palo Santo is licensed as sustainable and traceable by the Ministry of Environment of Ecuador. The traceability of the Palo Santo begins with the territorial organization, planting, forest control, analysis of reforested hectares, tree quality control, collection and exit to the laboratory, product evaluation. Additionally, no live trees are killed during the harvesting process.”

MCT is short for medium-chain triglyceride. It is a type of fat with a medium-length chain of carbon atoms. Medium-chain triglycerides include caproic acid (C6), caprylic acid (C8), capric acid (C10), and lauric acid (C12). Our products contain capric and caprylic acid which exhibit antioxidant properties while offering a silky smooth texture that’s suitable for customers with sensitive skin. 

Our MCT is derived from coconut oil, palm oil, or a combination of the two. On our labels, you may see CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC TRIGLYCERIDE (FRACTIONATED COCONUT OIL) or CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC TRIGLYCERIDE (MCT). Each serves the same purpose in our products, explained above. Both our palm oil and coconut oil are third party certified as sustainably and ethically sourced. 

Big YES!

That's a big NO from us. You won't find phthalates in any of our products. We mean it when we say Nothing Bad® here!

Sensitivities & Concerns

Our deodorant can be a great choice during pregnancy. If you're looking to avoid essential oils while pregnant we recommend our Simply Unscented deodorants.

Baking Soda is extremely effective at neutralizing odor, however, we’ve found that a percentage of the population experiences irritation to this ingredient. For some, Baking Soda is too harsh for their body’s pH, which can result in small bumps or a mild burning sensation.

For this reason, we created our Vegan and Sensitive Skin Formula that utilizes Magnesium Hydroxide for odor protection instead of Baking Soda.

If you have experienced irritation from our deodorant, please reach out to use directly at hello@humblebrands.com and we will happily provide you with support!

Deodorant pilling occurs when too much deodorant is applied to the armpit and clumps into tiny balls - this can be such a nuisance. We recommend 2-3 swipes and rubbing in any excess with your finger tips.

It is totally normal to experience pilling after the first application of our deodorant and it should go away in subsequent applications.

You might be experiencing a reaction to the Baking Soda ingredient, utilized in our Original Formula for odor protection. Please reach out to us at hello@humblebrands.com so we can support you! The Sensitive Skin line might be a great option for you.
