Scent-free people, please recommend a deodorant

I'm getting older and smellier. Theoretically I'd love to buy some kind of organic/friendly/health food shop product, but I've tried this before and I don't think they're strong enough for me. Pit Rok just doesn't do enough for me.

So as long as it's roll-on and scent-free, it's probably better to use a more conventional one if it works better.

Salt of the Earth classic deodrant from Holland and Barrett. Comes as a stick and a roll on. No scent, very effective, last ages - it's been my go to for years now.

I pat dry underarms with baking soda, very effective. Haven't bought deodorant in years.

I'll have a look at Salt of the Earth, thank you.

Any other suggestions welcome. I'm interested in exploring all options.

Mitchum do a good unscented antiperspirant/deodorant in stick, roll on or spray variety.

Don't think it's organic or health shop friendly but the only thing that works for me is Mitchum Ultimate 48hour cream. I feel I need extra support used Driclor and considered Botox but this is proving to be sufficient for me by itself.
Think it's this one. Comes in a box around £5.

I use Mum roll on unfragranced deodorant as its the only one I can use. I do find it difficult to get - some Sainsburys stock it.

Another vote for Mitchum unscented here.

Awake organics Aura clean deodorant. Best ever.

As much as I want to the natural stuff just doesn’t work for me. I either get whiffy very quickly or it is not gentle enough on the skin. I use Mum Roll on unscented now, works just fine.

Mitchum here too.

Thank you everyone. I will look into all of these.

Just coming back to report that I tried Mum and unfortunately it didn't work well enough for me. I think I'm going to try Mitchum next.

If you want to try something more natural have a look at nuud. I really like it. Also a fan of the naked unearthed natural deodorants from Holland and Barratt. I stopped using normal antiperspirant last year, took a little bit of time to detox but I smell so much less now, using these (I mostly use nuud at the moment), than when I was using conventional antiperspirant deodorants. I'd be stinking by the end of the day with those

The Unearthed ones don't seem to have a scent-free version, though.

Nuud looks interesting but I can't fine an ingredients list anywhere. Is there anywhere where I can find out the ingredients?
