Violets Are Blue

Magnesium Deodorant

5 reviews
As a breast cancer survivor, deodorant is the most important product to Violets Are Blue founder, Cynthia Besteman. Magnesium Deodorant took two and a half years to create. The magnesium base is the secret to the success of this deodorant. This unscented, essential oil, baking soda, and arrowroot powder-free deodorant will leave you odor-free all day. Violets Are Blue also maximizes each bottle by filling it completely at 3.2 oz making it one of the largest sticks you will find and will last longer!


Apply directly to underarms as needed.


Superpower Ingredients

Magnesium, Sunflower Oil

Full Ingredient List

Magnesium Hydroxide, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower Seed) Oil, Candelilla Cera (Candelilla Wax), Tapioca Starch, Cera Carnauba (Carnuba) Wax, Tochopheryl Acetate, Glyceryl Captylate


Violets Are Blue was created because of a personal need for skincare that was natural and safe for the body as well as the environment. After receiving a breast cancer diagnosis in 2011, founder Cynthia Besteman’s successful career in New York City real estate came to a halt. While undergoing treatment, one of her first actions was to toss out all beauty products containing unsafe ingredients, leaving her medicine cabinet bare. She was shocked by the mislabeling of many beauty products and dove into the world of natural skincare and launched Violets Are Blue in 2015. Violets Are Blue provides 10% of all products purchased toward skincare donations for cancer patients. Cynthia also provides patients at the Mt. Sinai Dubin Breast Center in NYC with a gifted package of her Beloved line upon their first day of chemotherapy.

This deodorant ticks all the boxes! It glides on so smoothly, there’s no sticky drag or oily residue. It feels powdery soft and works beautifully all day!!

A hard pass

Wow- this deodorant transfers to clothes hours (!!!) after it has been applied, pilled in the underarms, so raising ones arms - not a great option, and I was skunky within a couple hours. NOPE!


Beauty Heroes®

Hi Jennifer, Thank you for taking the time to review this deodorant. We're surprised to hear this, as the Magnesium Deodorant is very well loved by many. This is the first time we've heard this. But - deodorant is very personal. This is a very concentrated, smart formula - and I'm glad you gave it a try. We have some other really good deodorants at Beauty Heroes and would love to help you find your Hero product - please email us at for assistance any time - we love to help.

Magnesium Deoderant

This is a nice deodorant that works well.The purple container is pretty also. I only wish it was a roll on,but it is some peace of mind knowing what safe natural ingredients it contains.

I have tried several (15?) different organic/natural deodorants of different brands with no luck. Some work for a couple of weeks and then I find it's not working, some had the worst reactions- awful, painful rashes. I do not have allergies to baking soda or essential oils, so I kept trying things out. I was literally giving up, but I found this one. I've been trying it for about 4 weeks now. There's no scent, it's a larger deodorant stick and it's not super slick. Most importantly, IT WORKS. I stay dry, don't smell and I have no rashes or redness. There's no oily residue or yellowing of my clothes. I think the magnesium and tapioca starch are the key ingredients that work for me. It's so good, I'm going to buy one for my dad who has the same issues as me. If you're giving up on natural deodorants, try this one.
