Raise your hand if you’ve ever been confused about choosing a deodorant. It’s a sticky subject, because none of us actually want to rub debatably bad-for-you ingredients like aluminum and parabens into our armpits. But at least you know those traditional antiperspirants will leave you odor-free. The cost to your health? Well, that’s a topic that’s still being studied.

Making the switch to a natural deodorant is a lot easier when you bypass mass-produced drugstore products and place your trust in an artisan brand like Beekman 1802. The Beekman team is hyper-focused on formulating skincare products that are super effective and non-toxic — and their freshly scented, all-natural Milk Stick deodorant is a top-selling example.

The secret ingredient of this all-natural deodorant is goat milk — and it comes directly from a herd of goats raised at the brand’s headquarters: a 200-year-old farm in upstate New York. Right now, this deodorant is just $34 at HSN. You can also score $20 off your first order with code HSN2021.

“Our aluminum-free and baking soda-free deodorant uses a system that goes on invisibly and eliminates odor by starving the odor-causing bacteria that resides in the underarm area,” explains Beekman 1802 co-founder Brent Ridge of Milk Stick deodorant. “The super-conditioning properties of the goat milk soothe and soften the skin and nourish the [skin’s] microbiome. Over time, it helps reduce the number of odor-causing bacteria.”

What about those dog days of summer? Milk Stick has that covered, adds Ridge. “It’s the only natural deodorant that was put to the test doing farm chores!” he boasts.

In addition to warding off stink, Milk Stick actually nurtures your skin. It glides on easily and is exceedingly gentle. Goat milk happens to have a similar biochemical structure to human skin, so it jives with your skin’s microbiome. “Every skin type is different because our microbiomes are as unique as our fingerprints,” says Ridge. “But every skin type, no matter the age, ethnicity, or gender, benefits from nourishing the microbiome.

In fact, you can find goat milk in Beekman 1802’s entire product line, which includes face creams, soaps, body wash and a lot more. When you’re dealing with underarms, though, the gentle, all-natural ingredients in Milk Stick truly make a difference. Ridge notes that goat milk’s anti-inflammatory properties are a bonus when it comes to the underarm area. “Your skin just drinks it in,” Ridge says.

“I barbecued in 94 degree weather, and no odor,” one thrilled fan attested. “It worked for me from the very first time,” another added. “I also like the pleasant natural scent of the product, but the scent doesn't linger or get on my clothes nor does it stain my clothes.”

Even the doubters are sold. “I was skeptical about this working but I've been using it for about a week or so and found it to keep my pits fresh with a clean scent, gender neutral too!” one chimed in.

Grab a stick for $34 on QVC and you can pay all at once or split the bill into five easy FlexPay payments of $7 each. Fair warning, though: you might be tempted to buy up Beekman’s entire goat milk-infused skincare line. It’s that good.
