Weleda Pomegranate Deodorant is a wonderfully refreshing and effective natural deodorant that is free from aluminium salts and won’t clog pores. I love it so much that it’s appeared twice in my empties posts in the last year!
My favourite natural deodorant is Elsa’s Organics Deodorant, but this is my very close second favourite.
I love it for different reasons – it has qualities that Elsa’s doesn’t. Even though Elsa’s is effective, I can’t wear it after shaving, as it irritates my skin. This is where Weleda Pomegranate Deodorant really shines – I can wear it right after shaving without any discomfort at all.
As well as being no-stain, easy to apply, and fast to dry, it smells absolutely gorgeous. Perfect for autumn and winter. Weleda describes the fragrance as fresh and fruity with notes of orange and davana, and velvety-balsamic notes of vanilla.
The deodorant features a lovely large soft rollerball. Do be careful storing it upside down or shaking it though, as it does leak a little from the sides.
How effective is Weleda Pomegranate Deodorant?
The deodorant does indeed live up to its 24 hour claim. That’s not to say you won’t notice some odour after a few hours, but not the same odour as going deodorant free. One way to combat this is to wash the underarm area and reapply.
Let’s have a look at the ingredients.

How do the ingredients help?
Pomegranate juice has some amazing skincare benefits. It’s anti-inflammatory, which may explain why the deodorant is so soothing. Rich in tannins, pomegranate helps to tighten the pores of the skin and reduce excessive sweating and odour.
Witch hazel has a similar astringent effect.
As for liquorice root extract, Weleda has an ingredients glossary on its website that explains that liquorice root extract is used in cosmetics to soothe the skin.
Farnesol is an essential oil constituent that has useful anti-bacterial properties. A great choice for a natural yet effective deodorant!
Final thoughts on Weleda Pomegranate Deodorant
This is one of my favourite natural deodorants – it checks all my boxes. Aluminium free, effective, gentle, long lasting, and refreshingly fragrant. I highly recommend it, especially if you find some natural deodorants irritating.
