Current Obsession: Piperwai Natural Deodorant
See why this antiperspirant alternative is a game-changer.
As we continue our search for suitable toxin-free deodorants, let us ponder Piperwai's all-natural properties. While still new to the skincare game, having just launched last year, the Pennsylvania-based brand is a game-changer for someone like me, who has always relied on drugstore options—many of which contain aluminum and other potentially harmful ingredients.
Like our Style Editor Bethany Cantor's roll-on option, it took about a week for my body to adjust to the antiperspirant alternative. What I immediately loved, however, was how the charcoal-rich formula does not—I repeat, does not—rub off on clothes, unlike traditional brands that break such promises. The thick cream has a cooling sensation upon application and dries instantly. Although the refreshing scent is palpable, it is subtle, gender-neutral (which is ideal for someone like me who doesn't love smelling perfumey), and ideal for sensitive and even freshly-shaved skin. Simply scoop out a pea-sized amount with your finger or a mini-spatula and apply to each pit.
