Eliminates the body odour that no other natural deodorant could do
I will take this opportunity to say again that this deodorant has truly been a revelation for me in terms of eliminating the body odour smell that no other natural deodorant I had tried previously could do. Thank you so much! And along with your helpful assistance about how to best apply to avoid the white residue on my clothing, it makes me so much more confident to be out in the world, playing sport, hugging my friends, wearing my favourite clothes 2 days in a row!

Best kept in a cool place. As it is a 100% natural product, it will soften in the heat.

The product that started it all, our natural deodorant works wonders! Three Gems began when our founder, Louise, worked out a formula to make a deodorant with organic ingredients. She started experimenting more and gave her creations away as gifts. As demand for her products increased, Three Gems Natural Skincare was born.

We are so confident our all-natural deodorant works, we offer a money-back guarantee. Made of the gentlest ingredients, it won’t irritate your skin as many deodorants might.

We are here to keep you dry and odour-free with confidence.

Buy natural deodorant, NZ!

Three Gems is a Nelson-based organic skincare brand with a strong stance on reducing the number of harmful components ending up in our bodies and the environment. There are so many benefits to using natural deodorant far beyond what some consider a passing fad.

Because mainstream antiperspirants contain artificial chemicals that disrupt our ecosystems, we recommend avoiding them. Few people are aware of the ingredients in these products. Some of the components can be harmful:

  • Aluminium blocks sweat glands and can make it more likely for our cells to mutate. Too much aluminium in our bodies risks our kidneys, bones, and brains.
  • Parabens and triclosan are used to prevent bacteria growth but can increase the risk of breast cancer. No, thanks!
  • Phthalates help fragrances stick around, but they increase testosterone production in our bodies, increasing risks to pregnant women and fertility in men.

Plus, artificial chemicals damage the environment when you wash off your antiperspirant in the shower. There is no point in taking these risks when deodorants with organic ingredients do no harm and work super well.

We hand-make our natural deodorant NZ using baking soda, petitgrain oil, plant-based butters and oils, natural arrowroot, beeswax, and natural Vitamin E. That’s it! We don’t use water, fillers, or artificial chemicals. It comes in two varieties: a convenient wind-up stick or a plastic-free pot.

Three Gems was born from a practice of sharing good quality creations with the community. We carry on this ethos by being transparent about how we make our natural skincare, treating all our customers as close friends.

Read on to learn more about what we put into this amazing product.

Baking soda

You may be aware of the massive variety of uses baking soda has. The name shows that it is used for baking, activating other ingredients to help cakes rise. It also has fabulous odour-fighting properties. (Side tip for anyone who didn’t know: baking soda removes even the hardest-to-remove smells, including petrol, fish, and garlic.)

Because baking soda is so good at getting rid of odours, we use it in our natural deodorant! You will never have to worry about odour again.

Petitgrain oil

Sourced from the leaves of the Italian bitter orange tree, petitgrain is anti-infectious, antiseptic, and naturally deodorising. With calming properties and a fresh, floral scent, you will feel like you are embodying a summer meadow.

Strawberry seed oil

Strawberry seed oil is a wonder ingredient that is also in our natural lip balm! Distilled from millions of strawberry seeds, it helps our organic deodorant glide on smoothly and is the number one reason why our baking soda formula does not irritate the skin.

Natural arrowroot is another magic maker ingredient. It is used as a baby powder in South America and a relief for sunburn in Africa for its anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory properties. It reduces underarm dampness and keeps your skin happy when used in a deodorant.

Beeswax

Beeswax helps keep your skin nice and dewy. The main reason that we use it in our deodorant is that it keeps the formula solid. In warm weather, it will not melt! The beeswax we use is natural. You might find that when you buy your next batch, our batches vary in colour depending on the source and time of year.

Vitamin E

The Vitamin E in our deodorant provides antioxidant properties, nourishing your skin and protecting it from harmful free radicals that could damage your DNA over time.

Using our natural deodorant

We are so confident in the effectiveness of our natural deodorant NZ that we offer a money-back guarantee if it does not work. It will last you at least four months, meaning it only costs you twenty cents a day to smell great and stay dry while treating your underarms with kindness.

Our natural deodorant comes in two application varieties. Choose the deodorant stick for easy application in a wind-up tube that you can treat like an oversized lip balm. Or, if you would prefer not to use plastic, choose the plastic-free deodorant pot with a compostable applicator. Repurpose the empty pottle or return it to us for a dollar off your next purchase.

A little goes a long way, so apply it sparingly. You will not need to cover the whole underarm area - just a dab is enough. Using a little at a time will not mark your clothes or leave any residue.

While it will not melt in the summertime, we still recommend that you keep it in a cool place. It will soften in the heat, so be careful not to use more than you need if you want it to last longer.

Say hello to kindness

At Three Gems, we create natural skincare that is good for people and the earth.

We are proud to be part of the positive revolution taking place in the beauty industry. Reconnecting with nature through beauty is a wonderful way to support sustainable business practices and promote the acceptance and love of the natural you.

Three Gems has never tested our products on animals. Our founder, Louise, worked out the formula for the natural deodorant by testing it on herself! We have been treating our customers' skin right and keeping them smelling good since 2016.

No more damp underarms or shyness around moving your arms the way you want to! Our natural deodorant is the product for you. Order online today!

What's In It?

What’s in it (and what isn’t)

The Three Gems Natural Deodorant is made with baking soda and Petitgrain oil, as well as natural butters and oils like cocoa butter and coconut oil, arrowroot, a little beeswax, and natural Vitamin E.

What isn’t in it?  No water, no fillers, no chemicals, no aluminium, no parabens, no nasties at all – just pure goodness.

Baking soda

You may be aware of the massive variety of uses baking soda has. The name shows that it is used for baking, activating other ingredients to help cakes rise. It also has fabulous odour-fighting properties. (Side tip for anyone who didn’t know: baking soda removes even the hardest-to-remove smells, including petrol, fish, and garlic.)

Because baking soda is so good at getting rid of odours, we use it in our natural deodorant! You will never have to worry about odour again.

Petitgrain oil

Sourced from the leaves of the Italian bitter orange tree, petitgrain is anti-infectious, antiseptic, and naturally deodorising. With calming properties and a fresh, floral scent, you will feel like you are embodying a summer meadow.

Coconut Oil

Antifungal, antibacterial, and rich in fatty acids, we’re sure you already know how special coconut oil is. The coconut oil we use is from Sri Lanka. With its healing properties and a natural SPF of around 4, it protects your skin from the sun and potential pathogens.

Cocoa Butter

We source our cocoa butter from the fruits of cacao trees in Peru. Believed to be the food of the gods by ancient Inca, cacao provides a range of health benefits. In cocoa butter form, it is full of antioxidants and is a superb moisturiser. Applying this will not only make your skin feel smooth and moisturised but will also help protect you from free radicals that could harm your cells.

We love using this in our deodorant because its melting point is about the same as human body temperature – it literally melts into your skin. Yum!

Strawberry seed oil

Strawberry seed oil is a wonder ingredient that is also in our natural lip balm! Distilled from millions of strawberry seeds, it helps our organic deodorant glide on smoothly and is the number one reason why our baking soda formula does not irritate the skin.

Natural arrowroot is another magic maker ingredient. It is used as a baby powder in South America and a relief for sunburn in Africa for its anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory properties. It reduces underarm dampness and keeps your skin happy when used in deodorant.

You might find that when you buy your next batch, our batches vary in colour depending on the source and time of year.

The Vitamin E in our deodorant provides antioxidant properties, nourishing your skin and protecting it from harmful free radicals that could damage your DNA over time.

Our Story

Who are Three Gems?

At Three Gems, we delight in our unwavering commitment to creating the most effective and entirely natural skincare for fresh, clear, and vibrant skin. Because we love feeling confident and looking our best naturally, we want to share this gift with you.

Based in Nelson, New Zealand, Three Gems Natural Skincare was founded by Louise Routledge in 2017 after a long and fruitless search for natural skincare and a natural deodorant that really works. Louise has worked on her natural skincare range to overcome her own skin problems since 2011 and has never looked back.  Originally making the range for herself, then giving them away as gifts, and now sharing this 100% natural deodorant and skincare products with you.

The ‘three gems’ are Louise’s grandchildren, who provide the inspiration to make things as healthy as possible for both people and the environment and to make the world a better place for future generations.

All Three Gems products are made with only pure plant-based butters and oils, no synthetic chemicals, and no water or fillers that dilute the natural components, so you end up with 100% natural and organic active ingredients. And because a little goes a long way; you ultimately save money while also looking after our precious natural environment and pampering your skin.

Because they are made from very few and entirely natural ingredients, our Three Gems Natural Skincare products are safe and effective for even the most sensitive skin.

What makes us different?

  • We use no water or fillers in our formulations – making your product go further and saving money.
  • The range is handcrafted. Every jar or bottle is individually filled with love and care.  This ensures real hands-on quality control.
  • All of our products are crafted in small batches, so we may be able to custom blend something especially for you. This is especially useful if you have allergies or are sensitive to any of our ingredients.  Contact us to find out more.

We are so pleased to be able to help you feel confident and beautiful – naturally.
