The only aluminum free deodorant
I've been looking for the last 3 years for an aluminum-free deodorant that works and finally, after trying more than 10 other brands, I found it! I can walk 4 kilometres, go to the gym then mow the lawn and there isn't any odour. This is by far the best deodorant on the market!

Wonderful for sensitive skin and very effective.
I'd pretty much given up on deodorants because even those which promised to cater to sensitve skin left a red, fiercely irritated ring in their wake. In summer, without deodorant, I thought I smelled vaguely like ground coffee. I doubt anyone else could notice it and it was no big thing but not being coffee I didn't particularly want to smell like coffee, so I tried MooGoo and I've been using it ever since - about 9 years, and without a moment's irritation.
I notice no smell at all from the product but it neutralises body odour as promised. ...One thing to consider is that the product has a use-by date. I have had some issues in the past, and recently, where Moo Goo deodorant that has been too long on the shop shelf before I've bought it has basically solidified or dried up and been unusable. However it's also true that the roller is sometimes stuck and needs to be forced and/or rinsed with hot water to move it freely; the product beneath it is perfectly liquid and perfectly fine.
I've been using Clinical strength for years, so I was surprised this worked for me. My tip is to use minimal amount of product. So happy, as I love all my Moogoo products.

No stink and Great customer service
I've used a wide variety of deodorants, both with and without aluminum. MooGoo cream deodorant for me eliminates all smells and lasts all day.
Purchase thru the MooGoo website and when my delivery went missing *(Aust. Post) MooGoo sent an express replacement. Great customer service.

Wish I could have loved this
I use natural deodorants as I find most make my underarms go super dry and dark. I have been using crystal rock for some time but was nearly out so thought I would try moogoo i stead. I have used their moisturisers and face creams which i am happy with. However this deodorant didn’t stop any smells for me and I think it actually made it worst. I tried it for a good month hoping it would work but it just left white pilling on my armpits

Unfortunately this Didn't work for me, I never get body odour with chemical deodorant but got it straight away with this, as did my daughter. I wouldn't say I'm particularly sweaty person either

I was really wanting to give natural deodorants a go so this is the first one I tried. Unfortunately it doesn't work, I still get Bo and felt I had to reapply multiple times a day. I also don't like the white residue it leaves which is quite unattractive especially if you want to wear sleeveless garments.
What a shame.

Concerning reaction blocked sweat glands
I was using this for about 4 weeks and it was starting to get low so I ordered 2 more as I was happy with it. It did leave some white marks but it seemed to work well for bo. But soon after I started getting painful lumps under my arms, first one, then the other, then the first armpit would get a lump in a different spot etc. There was no visible redness but the lumps were very sore. I stopped using the moogoo deodorant for a few days and the lumps went away, started using it again and they came back. I did this twice to make sure that the moo...goo was causing it. It’s like it blocks sweat glands but I can’t work out which ingredient is doing this? I generally like magnesium based deodorants (as this is) over bicarb ones as I get painful lumps and redness from bicarb, but not usually magnesium based ones. I now have two almost full bottles that I can’t use, I bought the extras to have a work and in my bag so I used them once or twice while I was trying to figure this reaction out. I love lots of other moogoo products so it’s disappointing. This also wasn’t a detox issue as I’ve been using natural deodorants for a few years now.

I have used aluminium free deodorant for many years and I'm always experimenting with different products. I have used some Moo Goo products over the years and decided to give their deodorant a try. I must say that it is very gentle on my sensitive arm pits and is very effective. There is only one downside which is why I gave it the 4 stars and that is that I've noticed that it leaves very prominent white stains on my clothing, even if it's been applied hours before.

Natural product that works
I was given a sample box of MooGoo products which included their deodorant. I haven't used roll on deodorants for many years but thought I'd try it. The perfume is very subtle, it rolls on easily. It does take a long time to dry and will leave white marks if not careful. I found a light dusting of talc fixes that problem. For me, it works really well. No odour, virtually no sweating, freshness lasts all day. I have bought it since and will continue to use it.

The only deodorant that works for me!
I have tried sooooo many different deodorants and this one is the best, it’s not thick and doesn’t leave a creamy residue, it eliminates all smells, lasts all day. It is honestly the best!

No deodorising effect, left white marks on clothing
I've been making my own deodorants for years and have also tried a number of shop bought deodorants.
My quest has been to find or make a product which doesn't contain nasties or ingredients that are known to clog underarm pores (ie: bicarb, corn starch), and that doesn't require refrigeration.
Moo Goo deodorant is a thumbs down personally: for me it had no deodorising effect at all and left very obvious white marks on my clothing. I'm not a "sweater", so the fact that I could smell the bacteria breakdown within a short time after using the product was fairly telling - it plain wasn't working!
Despite the good ingredients, I won't purchase this again, it was a waste of money for me.

You Might As Well Try It.
I was very skeptical about trying this deodorant as I've always been a heavy sweater and I stink badly. I thought it would be too weak. For several years I've been using clinical strength deodorant which I sweated straight through and still smelt sometimes so I thought it was likely this wouldn't work. I was wrong! I love it! I do sweat more on it but I don't smell at all. Even when I'm not wearing it I've noticed my BO isn't as bad as when I used antiperspirant deodorant.
I put it on at night and by morning it's dry so I can get on with my da...y. If you absolutely HATE having wet armpits like me then you will be a little uncomfortable with this stuff as it does allow your body to sweat naturally however I've found it worth it because I have less smelly BO and feel healthier by not clogging up my pits with aluminium anymore. I didn't have that two week adjustment period they talk about, it worked straight away. It's good to read reviews but truth 8s you won't know whether you like it or how it works for you unless you go out and buy it. Seriously, it's $8.50. Give it a go, it's the only way to know!

The best aluminium-free deodorant I've tried
I've used a wide variety of deodorants, both with and without aluminium, the principal component of antiperspirants which clogs pores to stop sweating and may or may not be a health hazard. The jury is still out as far as I know.
MooGoo Fresh Cream deodorant contains no aluminium so sweating will occur, though in my experience it's less than if nothing had been used for several days. In any case it keeps me odour free.
It has a very light, pleasant fragrance which fades in the minutes after application, important to me as perfumes cause irrit...ation to my sensitive skin. In fact any deodorant I use (this one included) has the potential to irritate if used too long so I skip a day here and there with no noticeable increase in body odour. The only thing I'm not keen on is the small roll-on ball. At about 25mm in diameter I have to be careful not to catch hair in the gap between the ball and the container. I've used other deodorants with a 35mm ball with greater success. Anyhow I'm very happy with the product. Good, natural ingredients instead of nasty chemicals with long names, and it works well to boot.

I only use natural deodorants, not antipersperants, and am always concerned about the use of aluminium. I bought this product on an impulse as I had been very happy with the product I was using, but have historically loved the Moo Goo range of products.
However after using this product for about 3-4 weeks I noticed that my underarms were suddenly very painful and there were large welts under my arms! Of course I thought the worst, and so immediately went to the Dr. The fact that both underarms were affected the same way was a bit of a clue, a...

Get an answer from our members and MooGoo representatives
- MooGoo’s slightly alkaline deodorant formula stops bacteria-causing odour from growing - while still allowing you to keep sweating to keep cool.
- The inclusion of milk of magnesia gives the deodorant a ‘creamy’ texture that affords it its name.
- This texture is accompanied by a subtle lemon myrtle scent that’s essential-oil free - so less likely to irritate, according to MooGoo.
- A natural preservative, hops extract, allows this deodorant to remain paraben-free.
- The 60mL roll-on is priced at $8.50, while the larger 115mL option sells for $13.50, making the larger bottle slightly more cost effective.
Points of Praise
- Several reviewers happily noticed that the odour produced when they sweated was eliminated using this MooGoo deodorant. While they noticed that they did still sweat, this sweat carried no bad smell.
- Pores became clear and clean, and didn't feel clogged up with the aluminium found in several other brands of antiperspirant.
- The natural composition of this deodorant was appreciated by reviewers, especially those with sensitive skin. These reviewers often reported that the deodorant was gentle enough for their skin, had only very mild perfumes, and overall didn’t cause irritation.
Points to Consider
- Reviewers reported that this deodorant takes a long time to dry. if the drying period is not waited out, white stains often appear on clothing.
- This deodorant is likely to leave your armpits feeling wet, as it doesn’t actually stop you from sweating (just stops bacteria from forming). For those who like an ultra-dry sensation under their pits, this may be something to consider.
