Routine natural deodorant cream by the ounce
Routine was founded by two sisters from the Canadian Rockies whose credo is to offer beautiful, natural personal products that feel and smell incredible. They believe that your scent is like a fingerprint, and how you choose to smell tells a story. To compliment your pheromones without compromise. To honor nature. To produce kinder to the earth, mindfully sourced packaging and products. To fall in love with how YOU smell.
The classic formulation contains aluminum-free baking soda (deodorizer) and coconut oil (a natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal agent) in a clay and beeswax medium.
Routine deodorant creams are scented with pure essential oils and organic flavor oils.
For those with baking soda sensitivities, there are options using food-grade magnesium (with the added benefit of relaxing nearby muscles!). And there are beeswax-free versions for those looking for a vegan product as well as clay-free and scent-free versions.
Sustainable packaging: Reusable glass jars and recyclable boxes.
HOW TO USE:
Scoop a pea- or jellybean-sized amount with clean fingers or a tiny, clean spoon, and gently smooth it onto your underarms (or other potentially stinky areas).
NOTE: Currently we only have SuperStar available in bulk option
Cat Lady (Vegan)
This is a VEGAN formulation (which doesn't use any beeswax, like the others), with plenty of magnesium, and less baking soda. It smells like a pineapple upside-down cake.
Like a Boss (Clay & Beeswax)
This is Routine's strongest formula - it uses clay to help absorb sweat, beeswax to keep the product very creamy, and its scent is a combination of geranium, rosemary, and mandarin.
Moon Sisters (with Magnesium, Activated Charcoal & Prebiotics)
Enjoy this blend of neroli and roses to evoke the nostalgia of a late summer swim in the moonlight – with added activated charcoal to detoxify; magnesium to relax the armpits, to help reduce stress sweats; and prebiotics keep your skin healthy.
Sexy Sadie (Vegan, No Beeswax; also available without baking soda)
Sexy Sadie uses clay, which naturally absorbs sweat, and smells of ylang ylang, orange, and cinnamon. This formula is vegan, it doesn't contain beeswax. Without beeswax as a stabilizer - this formula's consistency may vary with temperature changes (becoming quite soft when it's warm, harder when it's cold), although that will not impede its effectiveness.
Superstar (With Magnesium, Activated Charcoal & Prebiotics)
As the name implies, this one has it all – and then some. Routine Superstar contains topical magnesium, both to absorb odors and to relax the muscles in the armpits, which may reduce stress-induced sweating (such as during business presentations or public speaking). But it also includes some baking soda, for added deodorizing and to increase its longevity - but just enough to do that, without causing irritation in most sensitive-skinned people. It also contains prebiotics, to keep your skin healthy (to nourish the beneficial bacteria on the surface of the skin which defend against redness, inflammation and infection, and which may also help crowd out the ones causing odour). And it features a very interesting blend of scents – black pepper, cardamom, tonka bean, vanilla bourbon, and vetiver – which a user describes as adding up to an amazing cologne.
The Curator (Extra Sensitive - Baking Soda Free)
Ideal for those with extra sensitive skin who've found that baking soda-based deodorants can cause irritation, this magnesium-based formula works just as well. The Curator smells like a combination of cocoa and eucalyptus.
Routine deodorant is free of aluminum zirconium, aluminum chlorohydrate, parabens, triclosan, propylene glycol, and gluten. It has only been tested on people (on their friends!), never animals.

Bold with a gentle finish. Modern sensibility with hints of ancient wisdom. Tonka bean as the top note lends a slightly sweet, energetic aroma. Amyris in the middle for a deep, sultry smokiness along with ambrette seed diffusing a gentle (plant based) musk. Rounded off with the aromatic and wise incense-like scents of sandalwood and precious orris root. Made in collaboration with The Class, a favorite transformative, mind + body, heart clearing work out.
