Natural deodorant that delivers — without baking soda or fragrance / 2.6 fl oz
Ursa Major Base Layer, formerly known as No B.S. deodorant, is an unscented, baking soda-free version of the brand’s beloved Hoppin’ Fresh Deodorant. We’ve found that those who don’t like Hoppin’ Fresh are few and far between — but a common thread is that they tend to have particularly sensitive skin that can’t tolerate baking soda, peppermint, eucalyptus, or rosemary.
And voilà: Ursa Major tweaked their original formula and created Base Layer, the unscented, baking soda-free version of Hoppin’ Fresh. Isn’t that nice of them? Those Vermonters are so inclusive. We love it.
We also love their Base Layer creation for its long-lasting odor-eliminating powers (thanks to hops), its ability to absorb excess moisture (thanks to Kaolin clay), and its non-staining formula (thanks to the magical combination of everything). And, of course, the packaging: we know those pots of deodorant paste are becoming more acceptable, but there’s something that seems slightly undignified about the process of applying them. Base Layer is the cleanest, most sensitive-skin-friendly formula we’ve seen in a stick. Thank you, Ursa Major, for preserving the dignity — and freshness — of delicate flowers everywhere.
If you already love Hoppin' Fresh, give Base Layer a try, but we'll give it to you straight: Hoppin' Fresh will keep you a tiiiiny bit fresher. (Baking soda can be beautiful stuff.)
