Product Description

Ylang Ylang and Cedarwood Deodorant – A handcrafted natural deodorant formulated with odour neutralising oils

An all natural deodorant

Made with High Quality Natural Ingredients

Toxins and Aluminium Salt Free

An all natural deodorant

This all-natural deodorant has been formulated with a selection of soothing butters and oils, absorbing clay and essential oils that naturally neutralise odours.

Housed in a cardboard push-up tube, this deodorant not only has the advantage of being toxin and aluminium free but is sustainable and plastic-free packaging too! Unlike most non-natural products on the market, a natural deodorant does not block your sweat glands and allows you to sweat naturally but stops the unpleasant smells.

Made with High Quality Natural Ingredients

A holistic and bright bunch of essential oils have been carefully selected based not only on their pleasant scent but also their natural smell busting properties and the bad smell and body odeur busting abilities.

Ylang Ylang is a favourite for tackling body odour and gives the product a sweet scent and the Cedarwood gives a woody contrast to the sweetness. Also included are grapefruit, tea tree and patchouli – all perfect for fighting odour and bad smells

Toxins and Aluminium Salt Free

Aluminium salts are what you’ll find in all anti-perspirants, and it works by plugging the sweat glands stopping any perspiration whatsoever. Effective, however aluminium has been linked to various nasty diseases. It is for this reason many of us have been looking to alternatives and embracing our natural sweating but minimising the odour that comes with it.

Before we start telling you all about the fabulous ingredients included in this formulation, let us first talk about why we think you ought to ditch the big brand mainstream deodorants and switch to a natural option.

First and foremost – there is a difference between a deodorant and an anti-perspirant. A deodorant does exactly what the name suggests. It ‘deodorises’ the bad smells associated with sweat whereas an anti-perspirant stops the sweat altogether. And the only ingredient known to stop perspiration altogether is aluminium.

Aluminium salts are what you’ll find in all anti-perspirants, and it works by plugging the sweat glands stopping any perspiration whatsoever. Effective, however aluminium has been linked to various nasty diseases. It is for this reason many of us have been looking to alternatives and embracing our natural sweating but minimising the odour that comes with it.

So let us take a look at what’s in this deodorant that can help keep you smelling sweet without blocking those glands!

Sodium Bicarbonate: A natural body odour busting salt that acts as the active ingredient here to neutralise and stop bad smells. The PH of sodium bicarbonate is alkali which helps counterbalance the acidic sweat. On its own, sodium bicarbonate can be an irritation to skin however we have carefully paired it with moisturising oils and butters to allow the bicarb to do its job without irritating your skin.

Essential Oils: A holistic and bright bunch of essential oils have been carefully selected based not only on their pleasant scent but also their natural bad smell destroying properties. Ylang Ylang is a favourite for tackling body odour and gives the product a sweet scent and the Cedarwood gives a woody contrast to the sweetness. Also included are grapefruit, tea tree and patchouli – all perfect for fighting odour.

Moisture absorbers: To help soak up some of that sweat the deodorant contains natural kaolin clay and arrowroot powder. Both these elements take on the moisture and help to absorb excess sweat. Kaolin clay helps draw out toxins and unblocks pores so is great for detoxifying your armpits after years of anti-perspirant use.

The deodorant comes as a solid in a push-up tube. Unlike a spray which can burn this product can be applied with ease. There is no roller-ball applicator either to trap hairs.

Holly - Creator of The Ilex Wood

About me…

My name is Holly – and I am the founder of The Ilex Wood.

Let me tell you a little bit about myself and the ethos behind the products I create.

I am a strong believer in the powers of plants and create my own herbal oil infusions that make the base of my products.

I believe that simplicity is key when it comes to skin care, an effective and quality product with no more than 10 natural ingredients with no padding or water can be created; to form an active concentrated end product with desired results.

Ever since I was young, I have been obsessed with nature. Growing up in the countryside and being a farmer’s daughter meant I spent a great deal of time outdoors, learning about the power of plants.

Unable to find any purely natural products in the stores (many market themselves as natural but check the labels and look out for the cheap padding and water (aqua)!), I took to creating my own using the plant knowledge I gained to create effective and luxurious skin care products.

The Ilex Wood is the instinctive choice for beauty skin care products that are natural, vegan, cruelty free, palm oil free with many happy customers discovering great results.

Ensuring packaging is plastic free as can be!

Handcrafted using only natural ingredients, The Ilex Wood offers clean, simple and effective skin care for those looking for a kind non-toxic green beauty routine.

Nothing unnatural. Nothing complicated. Nothing toxic.

Important information

Safety Information

Keep out of reach of Children. Do not apply to broken or irritated skin. We use Sodium Bicarbonate in our deodorants because it is deodorising. It inhibits the growth of odour and keeps the skin completely fresh all day. Sodium Bicarbonate is a natural ingredient, but occasionally it causes irritation on some skin types. This is because it is an alkaline ingredient and can therefore affect skin pH. When skin becomes too alkaline, it can feel sore and uncomfortable. Skin pH can also be affected by a number of other factors such as diet, smoking, air pollution & climate so irritation can arise after using the deodorant for many months without a problem

Ingredients

Ingredients: Only natural organic contents, nothing synthetic and not watered down (note no “aqua” or water at all). Does Contain only: Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea), Maranta arundinacea (Arrowroot), Sodium Bicarbonate, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut), Candelilla Cera (Candelilla wax), Kaolin, Tocopherol, Cananga Odorata (Ylang Ylang), Pogostemon Cablin, (Patchouli), Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit), Cedrus Atlantica (Cedarwood), Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree)

Directions

As it’s a natural product it’s quite susceptible to heat; there will be no smell when it’s cold and quite hard as well. Push firmly but not with a hard shove at the bottom so the product lifts out the tube about 5mm. Then heat the deodorant at the top with fingers rubbing over to get some heat into it if not used for a few days or for the first time to soften the . Then apply liberally under the arms. The smell becomes stronger on contact with skin.

  1. Jessica


    Works amazing will not smell like body order but will make you smell funny. I don’t know how to describe but it will make you smell like spices. And not particularly good smell but not the worst. It works if it all you have .

  2. bookworm


    ive tried a lot of products, and this one works for me!

  3. Bob Ortendahl


    Great product for the price.

  4. LeRoy H. Davis Jr.


    The deorderant smelled like turpentine to me

  5. CH


    It crumbles upon application.

  6. Victoria

    Pretty good
    A little thick/ chalky and won’t last all day but not bad

  7. P.Siddy

    It works..
    Works fine… I’d suggest more Ylang-Ylang , the scent is pleasant but a bit light..

  8. Kelly Boyce

    It works
    I’m a hardcore, hard working tradesman but this keeps me from stinking and it doesn’t make my pits hurt. I also like that the packaging is very minimalistic. I like the little cardboard tube it’s in. It’s a tad small and the price is a little high, but you get what you pay for and these small companies making hand made goods cost a bit more than the department store brands, but the products are so much better for you, me, the community and the planet.

  9. Elin Barel

    overall good
    I flashed on it because I overall love their product and love ylang ylang but the cedarwood scent was over powering so it was too much for me, wish they made it with ylang ylang and some other scent like rose or something more subtle

  10. Vegicien

    Best natural deodorant I’ve tried so far
    Works great and I like the woody smell.Extra points for the container which isn’t made of plastic
