Moisturize and deodorize those pits with our all natural, aluminum-free deodorant cremes. Made with anti-bacterial, odor absorbing ingredients like organic virgin coconut oil, diatomaceous earth, aluminum free baking soda, arrowroot powder, and white kaolin clay, our natural deodorant creme is safe and effective.
Our unscented version fights hard with the anti-bacterial, odor absorbing base ingredients (perfect for sensitive skin), while our regular deodorant adds an extra level of protection with the antibacterial essential oils of tea tree, lavender, and lemon.

Made with safe, natural ingredients you can trust:
Organic virgin coconut oil, organic virgin jojoba, organic arrowroot powder, aluminum free baking soda, diatomaceous earth, white kaolin clay and unrefined beeswax.
Our 'regular' version also contains essential oils of lavender, organic tea tree, and lemon.
To use: take a pea-sized amount on your finger and rub into pit.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the change in weather, our natural deodorant creams are susceptible to texture changes. When they are made, they are creamy and smooth, however, if they get warm and then very cold (the way they do during transit at times) the texture may change somewhat. If this happens, it will not change the effectiveness of the product. It will still melt into your skin and spread easily. Also, during the warmer months, our natural deodorant paste may get very soft and even melt if it is extra hot. Please place in a cool spot to solidify before opening to prevent spillage.
I have been looking for an aluminum-free, effective deodorant since I had breast cancer in 2013. Commercial brands, even natural ones, failed by day's end. This natural deodorant lasts and lasts. I rub the excess under each breast and I'm good to go. I highly recommend this product.
I have used box store natural deodorant and always had body odor. I decided to try Apple Valleys and no more order. Even after an hour bike ride. I also love the natural smell of it. I am sensitive to perfumes used in products, so this deodorant was perfect.
The deodorant WORKS fine for us, but it feels really wet after putting on.
This it the best natural deodorant I have used and I have tried many! I love this deodorant! I decided to stop using the traditional deodorant/antiperspirant about a year ago and have been trying to find a good natural deodorant that works and this is it! It took me a week or so to get used to putting it on, but now that is no problem at all. This deodorant, unlike others I have tried, lasts for most or all of the day. It really does a good job of preventing body odor and goes on really smoothly without being greasy. I am so excited that I decided to give this product a try. I love it, just like everything else from AVNS.
I really like this natural deodorant. It works really well. I feel better knowing I’m putting something natural on my skin. I have very sensitive skin so I wasn’t sure how this would be on my underarms. Thank you for a wonderful product!
This deodorant works really well for me. I have tried other natural deodorants and they don't work very good for me. This deodorant is not sticky and you don't have to wait for it to dry before you can put your shirt on. However I wish I could have given it 4 1/2 stars because I don't like the smell very much, it smells too much like tea tree oil. Other than that I really like it!
Works great, would buy again.
I love this deoderant. It smells so fresh and feels so light. It makes me feel so much better about avoiding one more toxin on my body All day long. Try it, you'll love it.
This is the best, longest lasting natural deodorant I've used.
I love this deodorant! I have tried others, when this one was discontinued. I was not happy with any of the others I tried. I am so very grateful to Marianne for bringing the deodorant back to AVNS!!!
This is the only natural deoderant that works for me. I like your products because they are natural and because I can read reviews before I order. Sorry to hear you are changing direction with some of them.
This is one of my all time favorite products. I've been using this deodorant for about 2 years now, and I love it. It does a great job of controlling under arm odor and sweat. It is moisturizing too. I have sensitive skin, and I haven't had any problems with this at all. I don't ever want to go back to store brands, so please, please keep making this wonderful deodorant. :)
It works!!! I truly was not expecting it to work, but it does! And it smells great too!
I've tried several natural deodorants over the years, only to return to Secret every time. I took a chance based on the reviews and ordered this for my own Christmas Stocking. The natural deodorant is AMAZING! It actually works! I don't smell!!
I tried a sample of the original deodorant and liked it. Now I have a full-sized Wind which I really like. Honestly, I never thought of changing my drug-store deodorant. It mostly worked and I had been buying it for years. Recently I decided to make some changes and try to cut out some of the unneeded chemicals in my life. The chemicals in my deodorant seemed pretty unneeded to me. It goes on smooth and smells great. I haven't had any irritation. I have noticed some smell on long days, but that happened with my old stuff too. It's fall right now - I'm curious whether this will work for me in the summer. I'll worry about that later because this is working for me now. Service was great and I'm happy to be a customer.
Body chemistry is such a funny thing. I've tried several cream-type natural deodorants along a similar one as this one. I'm not crazy about the scent of the regular and would probably go for the unscented if I order this next time. I like the ingredients used, but found the consistency to be much too oily and thin when actually applied to the skin. I had to be very cautious about not getting it near my clothes until I had it rubbed in very well. It would often wear off after about 7-8 hours, which is actually pretty consistent with other brands that I've tried (again, body chemistry makes a huge difference with natural DOs). With that said, I am thankful the AVNS keeps coming up with new products that are natural and generally perform as expected.
I have sensitive skin, and battle irritation from store bought deodorants, so I was leery of trying this. After months of outbreaks from my normal brand, I figured I had nothing to lose and ordered a sample. I am SO glad! I can't believe how good this feels on my skin. No irritation, no smell. I'm ordering a full size tub today, so I won't have to go back to my old brand. Just amazing.
This is the only deodorant that I can use on a regular basis without irritating my underarms. Every other natural deodorant either doesn't work for me or causes a rash. Best one I've used and I've tried a lot, I won't use anything else!
This is my second review and I'm just adding it on to my other review of how much I love this deodorant! The ingredients are clean and natural, and it works better than conventional deodorants! A must try!
I've always been inconsistent on wearing deodorant and for the better part of 10 years, just simply haven't worn it except handful of times. I am blessed to not sweat much and am not smelly, so why wear it? Anyway, I thought I'd give this deodorant a try (because I love ANVS) and I love it! I chose FIRE - which smells exactly like it's described. I love that the ingredients are natural and good for my skin! So - here I am being consistent with wearing it! Hooray!
As far as performance goes, this is great! It did give my skin a rash, but I read on the blog that applying apple cider vinegar helps clear it up, and that worked great for me. Totally worth it! And a little bit goes a long way, so I think it's a great investment.
I was using a natural deodorant that my sister and I made. It smelled good initially but application wasn't the best (hard but gritty) and I smelled worse as the day went on. I used another commercial natural brand but I still wasn't pleased. I found AVNS looking for shampoo bars and placed an order. After I placed the order, I saw samples of deodorant. I messaged AVNS and they graciously added one last minute! I have used it for 2 weeks (including days that I was outside in 90° heat with physical activity) and I am definitely buying more of this amazing stuff! (Maybe I will try the different scents) I love this deodorant! Thank you AVNS!
We all have been using and will be ordering more. Thanks for a great product!
I have tried so called natural deodorant products before. None of them worked. This product is amazing. I am on my third tub. I find it lasts much longer than store bought anti perperants and you don't have to deal with all of the things that are bad for you that they contain.
I have used several of the deodorant creme scents and the original is still my favorite.... I do wish that the essential oils were a tad stronger though to help me power through the day in 1 application. Having said that, I've been using it exclusively since 2/2015 and will not be going back to anything over the counter..... Thanks AVNS!
My friend has been pushing me to try a sample of your deodorant. Last time I ordered from you I got a sample of the deodarant. I work as a nurse in a long term care facility so I am always running around in a very warm environment. I am pleased to stay it held up through my shift! Next time I order I will be getting the regular size.
Took a few days for to get used to the fact it isn't keeping me as dry, however, even when I sweat there is no real smell. Also, doesn't sting with application right after shaving. DEF better than other ones I have tried. Like both smells-fire and wind as well as original.
I'm so happy I found this, it works perfectly. I bought some for my boyfriend who works outside all day and it works for him too. :) Smells great and I have piece of mind putting it on my body.
I have tried so many different natural deodorants and nothing has worked. This is the only deodorant that works for me. Another perk is the fast processing and shipping. Thanks.
It's a toss up of what I couldn't live without. This or shampoo bars? These deodorant bars are amazing. My boyfriend who works hard for 8+ hours a day never smells. I love the simple safe ingredients and how you don't need much to apply.
I've tried many natural deodorants and nothing works as well as these do! I love how dry it keeps my underarms. I work 8+ hours a day and never have a problem with smell or sweat.
I've used several natural deodorants and this one is the best. It's so easy to scoop out and spread on, it there is no stink! Even at the end of the day.
I have tried outer natural deodorant products and none of them have worked. I tried this only due to the reviews. I must say that I am impressed! I have found a little irritation if I use it more than 3 days in a row, so I still use regular deodorant about twice a week.
I've used a number of 'natural' deodorants. I've even tried making my own. In each instance I was glad for the bad things I wasn't putting on my skin, but the results were not so great. Imagine my delight when I found that Apple Valley Natural Deodorant Creme works!! Completely takes care of odor; and I'm never left with residue on my clothing; unbelievable!! I was a little concerned that I would go through the small container quickly; but that has not been the case - I am impressed with how how well a jar lasts! And as if all of that were not enough, I actually feel like the deodorant acts like a conditioner - softens my armpit skin. Incredible. This review probably sounds like overkill, but I've been looking for a product like this for many years - it is exciting to find that this one works!!
We are hard core athletes (we row 90 minutes daily, cycle, run, etc.) and this keeps up with our crazy rhythm. We have repurchased twice, and will continue!!!
This does work, which is the main criteria, but I don't like the fragrance or texture very much.
This product is amazing - simply the best deodorant I have ever used in my life (and I'm not young!). I often wonder why this type of formula is not more widespread. Why isn't EVERYONE using this instead of all that drugstore stuff? This is HIGHLY EFFECTIVE, doesn't stain, has a pleasant scent, and a little goes a long way. IT WORKS SOOOOOO WELL! Incredibly, when I read the ingredients, I actually know what they all are! This deodorant is actually good for you! Just awesome...
I have tried a LOT of natural deodorants. They either didn't prevent BO or they irritated my skin or both. I had written off natural deodorant, but was cautiously optimistic when I tried AVNS's version. This deodorant cream does exactly what it says it does, with none of the irritation that some natural deodorants cause and with none of the harmful chemicals of traditional deodorant/antiperspirants.
Of all the natural deodorants I've tried, this one is the very best. It works all day long! It smells great and feels moisturizing as it is applied. I love that is has no toxic chemicals and it still allows your body to perspire, but stops the stink!
I love this deodorant. So much so I converted my fiance who is a nurse. He uses the unscented kind and has no problems. Keep in mind you will still sweat but you will not smell with this deodorant. I'll take that in turn for natural ingredients.
I like this for a normal day at work. It leaves my close nice with no marks or stains. I have found though if I'm doing a workout or sweating a lot it just doesn't work well enough for my body type.
I had given up on natural deodorants and come to terms with that fact that deodorant is going to be have to be the only product in our house that isn't natural. Every kind I tried (which was several) either didn't work or made me break out, until now! This goes on so nicely, doesn't have too strong of a smell, and WORKS! You only need a little bit too! Thank you, thank you!!
I have been fooling around with natural homemade products at home. Unfortunately I've had a difficult time with deodorant. Most of my homemade concoctions caused my pits to burn like crazy or had a strong manly smell which I'm not crazy about seeing as how I'm not a man. I decided to give this a go and was very pleased. Not only did it not burn, it smelled great and worked better than I expected.
I've been experimenting with my homemade deodorant formulation with some success, but still would have a little odor by the end of the day. With the warmer weather coming, I figured I had better try something tried and true and eventually adjust my own recipe. Let me tell you, this stuff works! I've survived entire days of warmer weather and moderate outdoor activity, with little to no stink. I also made my husband try it, and it seemed to work for him too. I was hesitant to use the cream as opposed to the stick form, but I like that you can control the amount, and it absorbs very well without leaving residue. The combination of essential oils also smells great without being too obtrusive. Love it! With this awesomeness, it may be a while before I go back to making my own deodorant again. :)
I have been using this for about a week and so far I love it. I do not stink and my underarms feel smooth and soft. I will be buying this again.
The smell is nice - not overpowering. I wasn't sure what to expect, so I was pleased to find out that it works really well! I will definitely be continuing to purchase and use this.
Have used another all natural deodorant product that fell short compared to this from AVNS! I often need to re-apply in the evening, but love the non-chemical laden option that AVNS has come up with! The scent is light and refreshing without being overpowering.
I have had this in my bathroom for a while. I personally don't have to use deodorant much, and use it only before an intense workout. Loved it as a deodorant. But then....one night, after 2 days of severe bleeding and pain from a hemorrhoid, I was looking online for natural ideas to treat it. I read several ingredients and headed upstairs to check my essential oils. I don't know what led me to look at the deodorant - but I did....and lo and behold MANY of the ingredients were ones I had read as recommended for natural hemorrhoid treatment. Being desperate, I tried it. By MORNING.....a mere 8 hours later. My pain was gone and bleeding stopped. So you are welcome - I am bold enough to share my experience here - so that you will not have to suffer!
I've been looking for YEARS for a safe deodorant that actually works. I came to the conclusion that I must be a very smelly person, because NOTHING WORKED! Until this deodorant! I only have to apply once a day. I love the smell, (it's not overwhelming at all). It does not irritate my skin like a lot of the natural deodorants do. So glad I gave this a try!
This natural deodorant creme is the best one we've found. My husband loves it and says that he has found that he sweats less using this deodorant than he did when he was using a store bough antiperspirant.
It works! There are a lot of alternative deodorants that don't. Some of my household used to use the purple container, salt product but this is much better all the way around (doesn't irritate skin and lasts all day even while sweating). Just ordered 6 more so everyone will quit using mine!
I've tried natural deodorant before and well..it doesn't really seem to do the trick. I do home visits in my job and so my car is my office. Sometimes I have to document in my car or wait for clients and it can be really hot in the summer! This has been a Godsend because I can put it on in the morning and not be smelly all day -and without all of the icky questionable ingredients that commercial products offer! I do still sweat but I don't smell (I wonder if the products that stop you from sweating are really that healthy for you anyway). I've been using this for a few weeks and I never want to switch to anything else. I usually put a little on my fingers and rub it in under my arms -maybe others have found a way to put it on without using their fingers but it works for me! It's not really that messy or time consuming to put on.
I have tried several deodorants that didn't have nasty chemicals in them, but they didn't work. I bought one of these and tried it - and it really works. Then I had my daughters try it. It works for them also. We love this product. I just ordered 3 more today!
I use this after I've taken my bath at night, and it lasts a whole 24 hours plus!
Like some of the other reviewers, I have tried several natural products that have not worked for me! This one actually works! We have had quite a number of 90 degree days in a row so it's been put to the test. I will say that I have re-applied it in the evening after a long hot day but still way better product than anything I have tried. I would recommend it to anyone!
I had given up on trying to find a natural deodorant that works. I thought I would give this a try and it's amazing! It works even better than my toxic deodorant. So happy to have found this!
I've tried half a dozen or so natural deodorants in the last year before I found this one. I am so glad I did as I was about to give up! I've used it for 2 weeks and am impressed with its ability to keep me stink free and not make me feel like I was a walking essential oil cabinet. My job requires me to be both outside and in an office so I needed something that could handle both situations. The real test came last weekend on a 3 day camping trip with my family, sans showers. Even then with hiking, fishing, playing with my kids, and the other usual camp activities I was still stink free. I love this stuff! It doesn't stain clothes, goes on clear, and smells great. The cream is easy to apply and a little is all it takes. The deodorant smells great right in the jar, but the scent fades after you apply it which I really liked. I'll definitely be back for more.
My 17-yr-old son and I love the deodorant! Baking soda has been the only thing that keeps me smelling fresh, but my pits get so sore and peel. Your deodorant keeps us smelling fresh, even into the next day! Plus, the oils are soothing. My son asked me to order more to take to college with him. That says a lot!
I'm a wedding photographer and I spend most Saturdays during the summer sweating in the hot sun as I photograph outdoor receptions and portraits. I don't wear deodorant on a regular basis, but by the end of a wedding day I smell so bad that I'm afraid to say goodbye to the bride and groom for fear that they'll notice how sweaty I smell! I had resorted to borrowing my husband's "toxic" deodorant until I found this one and I cannot express how impressed I am with this product. My second photographer and I have both switched to "natural" deodorants and we do "smell checks" throughout the wedding day and are always delighted to find that we remain smelling great using natural deodorants even with all the sweating we do. I want to buy this deodorant for everyone I love to get them off the toxic, conventional ones I know they're using daily. It doesn't keep me from sweating but it DOES keep me from smelling, and that's priceless! TRY THIS!
I was a bit leery in trying a "crème", and because I have tried many different deodorants that just don't work. I have been impressed w/ this product. It does not irritate my skin, I don't feel wet when using a crème and I don't feel I "wreak" and smell myself all day. I am very happy w/ this new product I'm using.
We just got back from our mission trip to Grenada and I bought this deodorant praying it would not only work but also not cause chaffing or irritate my armpits. Mission accomplished in more than one way! I was loving on the Grenadian children while smelling pleasant, didn't stink and didn't get any redness or irritation from it!! GREAT product!!!
I am so pleased to finally have a natural deodorant that truly works. I've tried every product out there, natural and conventional, even clinical strength. And after a few hour of wear, they leave me with, we'll say less than fresh armpits. Not to mention how extremely difficult it can be to completely wash those products off your skin. That said, I absolutely love this deodorant!!! Easy to apply, and fantastic results. The scent is not floral tropical paradise like you'd find with national brands, but only took me a moment to get used to. It's a great product, and best of all, doesn't require the use of a sand blaster to wash off! Thank you so much, I'm converted.
I love, love, love this new deodorant cream!! I have tried many natural deodorants over the years, and have never found one that didn't leave me "stinky" at the end of the day. I finally started making my own deodorant which worked pretty good, but it leaves white marks on alot of my clothes, and it would always leave clumps in my arm pits so hard to wear with tank tops. With this new deodorant cream, I still smell fresh at the end of a long day out in the sun, and it is perfect for summer and wearing tank tops, it rubs in so nicely and doesn't leave any clumps. And I love the scent of the deodorant!
