Routine Natural Deoderant

Superstar Deodorant with Magnesium and Charcoal

58g Jar – $30.49

There are many reasons why we love Routine. It’s highly effective, sustainably packaged in glass jars, Canadian-made, family-owned, and never tested on animals. It’s a great alternative to traditional deodorant because it contains only clean, wholesome ingredients – no nasty aluminum zirconium, aluminum chlorohydrate, parabens, triclosan, or propylene glycol.

Routine is applied with your clean fingers (or a tiny, clean spoon if you’d prefer). This alternative application method eliminates the possibility of bacteria from your armpits contaminating the product.
