SodaWax’s humble beginnings originated in the Seattle glassblowing community. Frustrated with yellow aluminum stained shirts after a sweaty day in the glass shop, we began a quest for a deodorant that was free of aluminum and toxins. Unable find a natural deodorant that could withstand the 100+ degree plus environment for long hours, we developed our own…SodaWax!
Each tube is hand-poured in small batches to ensure quality. SodaWax Natural Deodorant doesn’t mask odor with perfumes. It’s a combination of six simple, natural ingredients that work together to kill the odor causing bacteria for 12 hours or more. How natural are we? We use only edible ingredients…
SodaWax Natural Deodorant is made with edible ingredients.
You could actually eat it. Not sure why you would, but hey, you could!
Can you say that about your current deodorant?
Most other deodorants have a long list of ingredients including synthetic fragrances, sulfites, aluminum & artificial preservatives.
Some even contain ingredients linked to cancer, such as parabens, silica, triclosan, talc, propylene glycol & steareth.

So SodaWax is natural, but does it work?
We spent nearly two years developing and testing our formula before offering it to the public.
The combination of ingredients work together to kill the odor causing bacteria, not mask it with perfumes.
It really works! …and lasts the whole day long.
What’s the difference between the twist-up and push-up options?
The push-up tube is the original packaging we’ve used for many years and still offer. It works great. There is no inner mechanism, just a plastic puck in the bottom of the tube that you push up with your thumb…similar to the old push-up pops. They are also a dollar cheaper and have the same amount of product as the twist-ups. The twist-up tube has a dial-up base. Just twist the base to expose more deodorant.
Why does the deodorant stick to the clear plastic cap when I remove it from my twist-up tube?
This happens on occasion. To avoid this from occurring, expose the deodorant by rotating the base. Twist the clear plastic sanitary lens and remove rather than pulling straight up. This will release the deodorant cleanly from the lens.
When I rotate the base on my twist-up tube it spins but the deodorant won’t come out. Am I doing it wrong?
This happens on occasion. Change in temperature may cause the deodorant to expand and stick to the tube walls. Just apply some pressure to the base while rotating to free the product from the tube. A little squeeze while turning should do the trick.
I developed a slight rash and redness in my armpit after applying the deodorant. Am I allergic?
You may be. The usual suspects are either the baking soda or the essential oils. We can’t be sure because everyone is different. There is a very small percentage of customers that experience this. Sometimes it’s just part of the detox period that occurs when an antiperspirant wearer switches to natural. In this case it’s just temporary.
What is the white powder on the tip of the deodorant?
This is tapioca flour. We lightly dust the tip of each stick so that it will easily release from the clear plastic sanitary lens when removed.
The description for the full-size tube states that the volume is 3.3oz but my push-up tube label reads 2.5oz. Was I sent the wrong size tube?
No. All full-size tubes contain 3.3oz (93g) of product. However, you may receive a push-up tube with the NET WT incorrectly printed as 2.5oz. These are older labels and we feel that it is better to use these labels with an explanation rather than be wasteful and dispose of them. We hope you agree.
Why is powdered sugar one of the ingredients?
Sugar is a natural antibacterial and preservative. Sugar paste has been used to dress wounds for decades. Here’s a link that explains in further detail: outdoorselfreliance.com
Is SodaWax an antiperspirant?
SodaWax Natural Deodorant does NOT contain aluminum therefore it is not an antiperspirant. There is no such thing as an aluminum-free antiperspirant. SodaWax does however contain tapioca flour which has hydroscopic qualities that help with wetness.
Why use a natural deodorant instead of the ones you see at the grocery store?
We use only natural ingredients. Those other deodorants that most humans use contain ingredients that have been linked to Alzheimer’s disease and various cancers. These ingredients include parabens, aluminum compounds, silica, triclosan, talc, propylene glycol and steareth to name a few. These chemicals are used to mask odors and block your sweat glands from producing sweat. That doesn’t seem natural to us.
Do I use SodaWax as I would any deodorant?
Yes, but allow the deodorant to absorb into the skin before dressing. You want it on your body, not your clothes. Five minutes should do the trick!
Why does my SodaWax deodorant seem a bit softer in the Summertime?
Don’t worry, that’s natural. Our main ingredient is coconut oil which has a low melting point. You’ll notice a slight change in firmness depending on the ambient temperature but it will always maintain its solid form. Our deodorant is formulated not to liquify like other brands do, even in Summer.
Will SodaWax stain my clothes?
SodaWax Natural Deodorant is aluminum-free, so you never have to worry about those awful yellow pit-stained shirts. SodaWax is however a coconut oil-based product. Coconut oil is necessary to neutralize odor-causing bacteria. Like any oil, it has the potential to leave marks on clothing. For best results, apply deodorant to underarms after bathing and wait five minutes before dressing. This will allow the deodorant to absorb into the skin, giving you the best protection as well as minimizing oil transfer to your garments. To remove oil marks from clothing, simply wash garment in a hot wash cycle with your normal laundry soap. For persistent oil marks, add a non- chlorine oxygen bleach powder to your wash cycle or directly apply a grease-cutting liquid dish soap to garment prior to wash.

My name is Tony and I make deodorant.
I didn’t always make deodorant. I actually made glass before that. Blown glass to be exact, for 20 years. I was fortunate to work with many of the world’s best glass artists & artisans during my glass career and I still watch the blown glass world continue to evolve from a distance. I am just as passionate about SodaWax as I am about glass. This is a great product that I know you’ll love just as much as I do.
