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!

Good to know

A little goes a long way, so apply sparingly. Used sparingly, this deodorant will not or mark clothes or leave any residue.

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 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.

    The best deodorant I’ve ever used. No more worry about body odour 🙂

    The best deodorant ever!! It works exactly as promised for the whole day even if I am sweating. I’ve tried many natural alternatives over the years and this deodorant is the winner. Thanks for making it and sharing it with us!

    I tried this deodorant because I found many of the other natural deodorants I had tried contained alcohol and I often had a painful stinging skin reaction… not so with this! The deodorant works perfectly, does exactly what it promises and I really like that it comes in a reusable plastic-free tub that creates no rubbish. This truly covers all bases of natural skincare and I am amazed that it works better than all other deodorants I have tried while being super gentle on my sensitive skin, even after shaving.
