In this polluted day and age, people tend to have lots of problems with how to stay fresh all day while avoiding all the bad chemicals in their personal care products.
You think that you have to say good bye to the long-lasting effects of your old products when using natural, plant-based alternatives when in reality, there are many good products out there with all the best ingredients that are as long-lasting as your old stuff.
Sam’s Natural deodorant is what you’re definitely looking for. Aside from the effectivity, this brand also has many interesting scents available for their deodorants. They also claim to prevent stains.
In this review, I will share with you my story, and how I’m just like you, trying to find the best deodorants that can work for me. I will also share lots of fun facts about this all-natural deodorant, and what I like and don’t like about this product.
Just relax and enjoy this review as we’ll definitely learn a lot.
As promised, I will share a little bit about myself before we go and talk about Sam’s Deodorants.
I was born and raised in a humid, tropical country somewhere in Asia and believe me when I say that no matter how much I took a bath, sweating just made me feel so stinky and sticky. So as you may have guessed, deodorants became part of my life quite early on. I think I was about 13 or 14 years old.
The first thing I hated about using deodorants was the stains, yellow stains or even white stains that were thick. It irritated me because I had to throw out lots of good shirts I had because they looked weird after a few months.
What I waste! I would always say after throwing out the next shirt and mind you, it isn’t cheap to keep on buying new clothes every month because you end up throwing the old ones.
So I then decided to explore all-natural products, as they claim to not stain your shirts and keep you smelling fresh all day. But here’s the thing: I was SO stinky! I had no clue what went wrong but all I know was that I was constantly worried about my smell when using these natural products.
Nothing seemed to work.
Then fast forward a few years later (and yes, I had to use antiperspirants that made my skin sting) I learned about how to properly transition to all-natural deodorants and that it’s called underarm detox. Stay tuned because I will briefly explain what underarm detox is and maybe you can learn a thing or two, or maybe you’ll try it someday.
So now, as I write all these reviews on deodorants (and antiperspirants), I am so happy because I am able to inform all of you about how to use these products and even tell you if they’re effective or not, as I never had this when I was starting out. Talk about how lucky all of you are. Well, I’m always happy to share and I love sharing these reviews because I learn a lot as well.
So What is Underarm Detox?
I found it so weird when I hear “underarm” and “detox” in the same sentence. I guess you know why right? I grew up knowing that detox was for people losing weight. They often go through a juice cleanse to flush out unwanted toxins and get rid of some extra weight.
So when I saw what they call underarm detox, I was definitely intrigued. I learned so much about how our underarms also need so much cleansing and detoxification after using all these chemical-filled products.
I will be sharing the different steps you should take before fully using your all-natural deodorant.
1. Prepare Your Detox Blend
Before starting, you have to be fully prepared for your underarms detox. Don’t worry, the preparation isn’t that hard. You just have to make sure that you have all the ingredients for a full 30-day cleanse.
You need three easy-to-find ingredients: apple cider vinegar, bentonite clay, and water. Voila! You have your detox mix. Check if the amount is enough to last you for a month for a full detox.
2. Apply Daily
Mix 1 tablespoon bentonite clay to equal parts water and apple cider vinegar. Mix all these ingredients in a non-metallic bowl (preferably glass) to avoid any reaction with the vinegar and bentonite clay.
The mixture should be as thick as yogurt and should have a creamy consistency. Make sure that you mix everything well and that there are no clumps.
Apply this mixture every day before applying your all-natural deodorant. Start by leaving the mix on for 5 minutes, slowly increasing the time as the days go by.
3. Be Patient
Always be patient! Not all results will be perfect on Day 1. Remember, you have used your old products for years and the detox will take time as your underarms need to “breathe” and heal from a lot of dryness and clogged pores.
A full detox may take as short as 5 days but for most people, it will take up to 30 days. So always be patient and expect that you may smell a little bad before you smell way better.
4. Use Your All-Natural Deodorant
After the detox, you can worry no more about reapplying your all-natural deodorant because of your smell. Your underarms have healed and will get used to more natural alternatives.
What Is Sam’s Natural Deodorant?
It all started with a hard-working mechanic named Sam. He found it so hard to make sure all the oil and grime was removed from his hands after work, but there was a catch — he wanted to keep it all-natural. So that’s when Sam’s natural products were born.
It all started from walnut husk hand scrubs and Sam’s Natural soon produced different organic and plant-based products like deodorant. So you can be reassured that what your buying comes from a person who really wants to keep it organic, fresh, and definitely all-natural.
What I Like About Sam’s Natural Deodorants
Sam’s Natural Deodorants are never tested on animals, and will never be. They also use plant-based sources for their ingredients like coconut oil, baking soda, and arrowroot powder. “Don’t panic, it’s organic!” is so true with their deodorants.
2. A Little Goes A Long Way
No need for so many swipes of deodorant, you just need 2 swipes and you’re all set for the whole day. over applying the product can also irritate the skin so I’d suggest that you follow the recommended application to avoid any reaction.
3. Audacious Scents
Yes, audacious is right. Sam’s Natural deodorants have many interesting scents. While other brands have floral scents or even no scent at all, Sam’s just makes unique variants for their deodorants. There’s a bay scent, and even a tobacco scent (intriguing, right?). So you’ll never run out of adventurous fragrances to try out.
What I Don’t Like About Sam’s Natural Deodorants
1. Rashes and Cystic Acne
A lot of people say that they get rashed and redness after applying Sam’s Natural deodorants on their armpits. Some people had it even worse because they complained that they had lumps growing after applying the product.
I would say that this is due to underarm detox, but cystic acne can be very painful, not to mention uncomfortable so I highly suggest going to the doctor and having it checked.
2. Does Not Work
Sadly for some people, this deodorant doesn’t work and they said that they ended up wasting money on a product that they had to reapply throughout the day. My theory is that most of these people have either not detoxed their armpits or did not have the patient to wait for up to 30 days. Some might just sweat too much so the product gets “washed” off.
Although they did say that the smell was amazing, what’s the point if it doesn’t work right? You might have to try another deodorant that can keep you smelling fresh all day and one that doesn’t need reapplication, or you can stick to this product and go through proper underarm detox.
3. Product is Too hard
Literally hard, a lot of people who bought Sam’s would complain about the texture of their deodorant saying that it caused wounds on their armpits because it was so hard to put it on the skin.
You can either place your deodorant on a warm area of your house but if this doesn’t help you may have to go and email the manufacturers to give you a replacement or a refund.
Using all-natural products is the best way to keep your skin from terrible reactions caused by chemicals and is also the best way to protect the environment. Always remember that it is not too late to make the switch and that underarm detox can be your best friend when you’re going through the entire process of removing the unwanted chemicals off your skin while unclogging your pores.
Sam’s Deodorant is an effective option for anyone who does not sweat excessively. Although some people claim it doesn’t work, there is enough evidence that it works if you are not a heavy sweater. I like the fact that this product is all-natural because I can watch what I put onto my body.

Ready to Make a Change Now?
My name is Oscar and I am the founder and director of Stop-Sweating-Now.com and have been researching and writing about hyperhidrosis for many years.
I have been sweating excessively for the better part of my life. I looked for solutions for well over a decade, but I never found anything that lasted.
It all started when I was around 14 years of age, when I suddenly found out that I was sweating more in my armpits than I should. At first I thought it was something that would go away soon, but I was wrong.
I had given up hope and accepted to live the rest of my life being embarrassed with ugly sweat stains in my armpits.
However, after a few years of not searching for any solutions anymore, I gave it another shot. And I found what finally gave me the freedom I had longed for so many years.
After finding a solution to my problem, I decided it was important to shout out my message to those that are suffering from what I had lived with so many years.
My goal is to help people find their freedom from sweating by sharing my expertise because hyperhidrosis is an underdiagnosed condition.
People don’t know that it is a medical term and can be treated effectively.
That is why I am here: Sharing with you what I know, what works and what does not work.
