Underarm Deodorant Cream
One application provides under-arm odor protection for days. Effectively neutralizes perspiration odor in the underarm area without the use of harsh chemicals. Daily activities such as showering do not interfere with Lavilin's effectiveness.

Smell-Free December 20, 2011
Love this stuff. I am surprised everyone is complaining about a deoderant that last 3-4 days!!!!!!! That is incredible, even if the previous formula lasted 7. The previous formula contained BHT, which is basically a poison when absorbed through the skin (especially vulnerable areas such as the armpits), so be happy the formula was re-vamped. I started this past Saturday morning and it is currently Tuesday evening and I am only now starting to smell faint B.O. Love this stuff!!!!!!!!! The Old Spice non-antiperspirant deoderant I was using reads on the label "this product contains harmful ingredients."

I agree with smell-free - it is tough to find a deo. that works even a few hours or one day let alone several days in a row! So I am surprised to hear the compliants - although, I can understand for the long time users who are used to the old formula being disappointed. I never used to the old formula so to me to find a deordant like this that works even an ENTIRE day is a thrill for me! I probably would not buy the old formula if it really contained petroleum jelly because that is a by-product of the gas industry - who wants to rub gas into their armpits? Not me! I just started using this a day a ago but I can't tell you how happy I am so far - I just started perimenpause and my body chemistry is changing -result is that none of my natural deodorant work anymore! I was getting so frustrated because I have been using natural deordants for over 10 years with no problems! Than I read about this online and even though it was expensive for such a small amount - I figure I would at least try it out once and see. It is great! I didn't stink ALL day! Even overnight, I was sweating because it was hot in the house - I should have been stinking when I woke up - Nothing! I was so thrilled and surprised! I mean, if this works like this for a full day I am happy but I think 3 to 5 days is gonna be a treat! Hopefully I can continue to afford this stuff! :)

I've used this product for over 20 years. It is the most effective deodorant and made with natural ingredients. I always know that no matter what the situation (high humidity, strenuous exercise, stress) I will always smell fresh. I highly recommend it to anyone, male or female. I have never had any skin reaction even after shaving.
Kenn March 9, 2012
I have used it for 15 years. Strenuous activity (I work on a farm.) does not wash it away or stop it from working. I am glad the BHT is out. Can you please take out the hydrogenated oil. I don't eat it and prefer not to use it at all. thanks

I have been using Lavilin Deodorant for the past 30 years religiously. The old formula was stronger and sticky. The new formula is effective for only 3-4 days with one application.
Rose from Newport News, VA April 17, 2012
For some reason about 6 years ago I began getting a serious under arm rash from using any kind deodorant or deodorant/antiperspirant. For about 1 year during that time, I went to a dematologist and they didn't help. I used a prescription underarm cream with baby powder which cleared up the rash, but it did not do anything for the order. The all natural deodorants did not work. I couldn't go around being funky so I had to use the regular deodorant during the week (rash again) but on weekends (usually at home - not out much) I would use tea tree oil and baby powder. Works O.K. during cooler months (not all day), but forget it during warm/hot months. About 3 years ago my sister found this product "Lavilin" that I tried. I followed the instructions, but during that time it did not work. Just recently, something told me to try it again. This time it worked. It feels good for a change. No burning or itching. My skin is healing quickly. I did some yard work. Got really sweaty, but not stinky. That was amazing because I sweat and get funky very easily. I am really impressed with this product. I highly recommend it. Even if this product last 3/4 days, it's worth it and better than what I was dealing with before.

This lasts about 3 days for me with each application.
kath April 25, 2012
I've been using Lavilin for more than 25 years. I've always had extremely impressive, long lasting results (50 or more days in cool weather and 30 days in warmer weather). I can't explain why I've gotten such phenominal results, but I'm definitely not complaining.
When I purchased my last supply (new white packaging), several months ago, I noticed a difference in consistency, but didn't realize there was a formula change. AND I really haven't noticed a significant difference in how long it lasts...last night was the first time I've reapplied Lavilin in two montns. Now that we're heading into summer I might not get such long lasting effects (with the new formula) but I'm confident I will be satisfied. If BHT was in the previous formula and is harmful I'm glad for the reformulation (and a little dissappointed/worried) that I used it for so long. I hope there's nothing else lurking in the product that will do harm. Phoenix, Arizona
Rosalind May 21, 2012
It's not true about the 3-4 days - for me at least. One application lasts me over a month or even 2 in the cool weather; 3-4 weeks in the hot weather. I've tried to get family onto it, but they don't have the patience or the social indifference to get the process started. When I first began, 10 years ago, the first app lasted 2-3 days, the second app about 5, and since then it's never been shorter than a week between applications. Maybe hairless armpits makes it more effective as the product gets on skin rather than hair.
It seems expensive till you do the numbers - the product saves me money and saves on landfill for all those plastic containers that get used for the less effective products. I remember the original black jars were more true in size to their contents. There's no need for the ginormous jar relative to the small and intensely effective contents. The big jar is an unnecessary and charlatanous gimmick.

I find that this product is vastly superior to any other 0% aluminum, 0% alcohol, and 0% paraben product I've gotten to use...all others had no staying power and were usually in an awkward form (i.e. soapy, etc...).
My doctor holds a degree as an MD, graduating Magna Cum Laude from Baylor U, (the second highest award given for academic excellence) which he then practiced internal medicine for about 25 - 30 years; untill he felt he needed a doctorate in homeopathy as well as the MD degree to have the most rounded skill set in healing - i.e. to be become an intergrative healer.
The point is that he recommends a very basic set of cleaners that can sheild yourself and others from my illness better :
1. Chlorhexdine Gluc 4.0%, a.k.a. "Hibbclins" soap - used daily on each hands "7 points of contact," around the moutvh and nose, and any kind of event that may cause a breaking of skin or inflamation of tissue membranes. The cholorhexdine kills existing bacterium and prevents further bacterial replication for around 6 hours.
2. Collodial Silver - can be found with as fine a solution as 23 ppm, which can then be sprayed 2 - 3 times on each area of concern/ no more than TID, or at least daily...
3. Orange TKO - easy to find and highly effective when thrown in with the laundry.
~ Also, to treat at least mild to moderate physical trauma (especially if it results in bleeding), I use chlorhexidine, follwed up with some hydrogen peroxide, next in line is 2 or 3 sprays of silver, and then a finish of some neopsorin triple antibiotic (generics, like always, are fine).
~ I am loaded with so much pharmacological knowledge, that I'd love to lend advice to anyone in search of answers. I nay just have some of the answers you're looking for,
email me at email@example.com for questions,

I love this stuff!
Liz June 19, 2012
I have been using this for about 30 years. The formula has varied over the years, but is always effective. I use it once a month in fall and winter, twice a month in the spring, and 3-4 times a month in the summer.
PGrant July 11, 2012
I have never taken the time to write a review but am so impressed with Lavilin that I felt it was important to do so. For many years I have battled underarm rash from many different deoderants. They would only work for a little while, if at all, and the rash would begin. A sales person at Sprouts recommended Lavilin. It works so well, no odor and no rash. From reading the reviews Lavilin has been available for 30+ years. I hope it continues for many years to come. Thank You, PGrant
Sina August 23, 2012
I have not tried this product yet, just picked up a sample of it at work. My question is - if someone could answer for me - when you bathe, can you wash your armpits with soap as usual, or does soap negate the deodorant?
sara October 17, 2012
This is absolutely amazing - a life altering product - that is rare. I have a very active lifestyle and never do I get through a day without having to re-apply deodorant or tollerate being smelly. I started travelling in hot climates and there was no hope for the regular deodorant I use. This is my first week using Lavilin, I've used it twice and that is it. I simply can't believe that I don't notice any by the end of a day. Everyone should know about this!
K Drew October 25, 2012
I have used the white container of deoderant for years and I have always been happy with the results and it lasts at least 7 days. THANK YOU THANK YOU
Natalee December 16, 2012
I agree with Sara. This is a life-altering product for those of us who have overactive sweat glands. It is short of a miracle. Wish I would have known about it 20 years ago, but better late than never. I'm turning some other folks onto the products. My sis is a nurse anesthetist and has some problems with surgery, stress and being on her feet all the time. I just sent her and her boyfriend a couple of lavilin products to try. He is a dentist and has problems with being on his feet all the time too. Like K Drew, THANK YOU.
Natalee December 16, 2012
Sina, it takes a short time to figure out how your body will adjust to these products. You can bathe as usual. The longer you use them, the more your body adjusts. It is pretty amazing, really. Just be patient.
Allan December 26, 2012
I was skeptical at first, but after giving it a few days I was amazed! I thought it wouldn't work for me as I am a man, and i workout 4-5 days per week, and I had my doubts, but after using my first jar I have been hooked on it for over a year. I can apply it every 7 days, but that's pushing it, so on the safe side I apply it every 5-6. super impressed! Thank you!
Customer for life!
MARJORIE February 6, 2013
I have used this deoderant for several years. I would not want to use any other
Marie Paule March 28, 2013
I have tried many natural deodorant which always left smelling at mid-day. I always enjoy when someone tells me I smell good and b.o. is not my perfume of choice.

You have to put this on with your fingers and then wash your hands, which is weird. I prefer a stick.
Laura García May 6, 2013
Hello, I see this product is very effective! I want to know if you can send to Colombia!
Pleasse I want to buy it.
TERESA REINOSO June 12, 2013
HOLA. ESTE PRODUCTO SE VE INTERESANTE, ME GUSTARIA PROBAR CON EL DESODORANTE PARA AXILAS, PERO ME PUEDEN INFORMAR SI FUNCIONAR PARA LA BROMHIDROSIS AXILAR??? Y SI HACEN ENVIOS PARA ECUADOR??
Lisa M. Rubio June 19, 2013
The product is so effective, that after 20 years of using it...it used to come in a black container...I no longer have to use it. I no longer have any underarm odor. In fact, since I started using the product, my entire body is sweet smelling. Yes, my entire body.
I now give it as gifts to women friends and family who want to feel sexy...not having icky deodorant stains on their clothing. And I've started my granddaughter on it as well, although I have no interest in her being sexy yet!
RaymondF June 29, 2013
Do I just use this item alone or should I use more as well.
Im really having problem with others smelling me. I really think its cComming from under my aarmpits.
Please help,, Anyone
Sam July 3, 2013
I don't like how the container does not have good sealing protection. I'm worried about the freshness of the product overlong term. Anyone faced any issues with the cap being loose?
mintra wilson July 9, 2013
I started using Lavilin nearly 20 years ago. I only use it once every 2-3 weeks in the winter and every 4 weeks in the summer. Great product
Irene July 23, 2013
Love this product! Nothing else works as well. I hate when I run out! Ordering 2 right now!
mhadz algire August 14, 2013

Deanna August 22, 2013
I just purchased this product and haven't used it yet...it says not to wear deordant for a few days before starting the cream...I am just wondering if anyone waited that long?? Excited to try reading all the reviews..
David Getoff. CCN August 24, 2013
I have been using Lavilin for over 30 years. I read their full page ad in Let’s Live magazine 30+ years ago when I lived in New York. I had to order a jar just to prove that it could not possibly do what their ad claimed. Very surprisingly, I was wrong. I was soon buying dozens at a time and selling it to all my friends. Back then and for many years is was a very different looking black container. Yes I agree that there are one or two ingredients that I would try to find a substitute for, however, unless you live in a pristine rain forest, you absorb more chemicals in one day of living and breathing than in a once a week application of this wonderful product. I teach classes in addition to my private Naturopathic practice and in over 30 years I have only had 3 or 4 patients or student for whom it did not work. I have no idea why. The benefits of NOT stopping me from sweating, as it is beneficial to do so, and yet no more odor for so long, is fantastic! Not the easiest thing to apply but you get used to it and WOW is it worth it!!!
Sheryl August 28, 2013
I just used up my first pot. It lasted me only 2 months, as I was applying it every morning after a shower to kill odor. I felt very disappointed at first, as after a week or so I still had odor. I kept using the cream because it didn't work any less than any other deodorant I'd ever used, and anyway I'd already spent my money on it.
Now all of a sudden after seven weeks of use, I have noticed in the past week or so that although I am still getting really sweaty, I have no odor any more. I'm really surprised, as Id convinced myself it wasnt working. But maybe it just takes some people longer to adjust than others. So my advice is, if you have been using this for a week or so and arent seeing any results, persevere. It works for me now, and I was sceptical. I'm very pleased and just bought a new pot today. Well worth it if it works!
KES September 6, 2013
hello i have seen people were highly recommend this product , i have tried all the deodorant that is available in the market nothing seem to work , i would like to know if U can sent this product to india or not plz .. thank u
Dusty September 14, 2013
Hello! I am so confused and intrigued. Are you saying that when taking daily shower, that we do not wash under our arms? Or, are you saying that we can shower daily with no fear of washing it off?
Gaby September 15, 2013
So I just purchased this on friday and i received it on saturday i was super happy. so lately for some reason ive had strong armpit odor which i never had before and now its just nasty... so i purchased this but im not really sure if it is working i put it on at night and now its morning . I don't think i smell anything .... my allergies suck...and now im going to shower right now and go through the day and see what happens. I just really hope it does work for Me ! Does anybody know if it matters if you do not stay with out deodorant for 48 hours before putting the first application ?
Sweety October 17, 2013
I cannot understand the mirracal effect at all. I used it twice and all this time i feel as i didnt use anything. NO EFFECT!
Jackie Beaulieu October 24, 2013
I discovered this product in May of this year, and am totally thrilled to find a deodorant that doesn't need re-application everyday. It has revolutionized my world. :-)
Ronda Christiansen December 5, 2013
I found this in an article in Men's Health.... I was going thru a DETOX and I couldn't stand being next to me.
I ordered it and I have never used anything in TEN years. with gratitude RLC
Carol January 5, 2014
I just started using this product and yes, it does last for 7 days - at least it did for me. Amazing. Upon reading the ingredients once again, I noticed that it has talc (pharma) which has been linked to cancer. Am I being worried for nothing? Can someone explain to me why talc is safe in this case?
Kim Bryan January 10, 2014
7 days - this is great - all those cysts and lumps about gone from under arms and in breasts. I had my doubts but I am a believer now. Only problem is if I hit day 8 (testing timing) odor comes back overwhelmingly - lol - happened one time and oh it was terrible. So always put mine on on Sunday when getting ready for church - never forget again - :)
Sandra "Dee" January 16, 2014
I am not sure why anyone would complain about this fabulous deodorant. It is the best and most effective natural deodorant that I have ever used. I tried many others and they never worked. I am a sweaty person and this lasts me 3 days. I give it 10 starts if I could! Thank you Thank you Thank you!
Hannah January 21, 2014
When I was a teen I developed an allergy to aluminum after using too much regular deodorant. I've searched endlessly for a product I can use that won't make me break out and that works. Other natural deodorants don't smell too good and don't last at all, but this stuff, although expensive, is the only thing that works for me. I am elated to have found this and not have to go around smelling, especially at work where I have to sit very close to others. I am a woman and smelling good at all times is super important to me. I recommend this to anyone and everyone, whether you have an allergy or not, but especially for those that do. If I could rate it a ten I most certainly would!
V Hughes January 26, 2014
I've been searching for an aluminum-free deodorant that REALLY worked to keep the odor away. This one passed the test! I put in on in the morning and even did an INTENSE workout in the evening and my underarms had no odor at the end of the day. I don't care about claims of odor-free for more than 24 hours; I just wanted one that would work through ONE day. I'm now checking into their other products! I highly recommend this product!
Marcel February 4, 2014
I have used Lavilin for over 20 yrs. and have noticed that it is less effective I wish they would have mentioned something on the new product, one container used to last me yrs while only applying it once a month, no lucky if I get 4 days. It was better on vacation in the tropics, this year only applied it before I left and it was good for 6 weeks, salt water didn't effect it.
April February 19, 2014
For a reasons unknown I am unable to make a claim of 3 or 4 or more days. I reapply daily. Occasionally I can make it 2 days. Even though I don't get the long term results, the results I do get are nothing short of a miracle for me! I've battled pit odor for years! NO other deodorant could last - even a full day. Tried them ALL. And then wanting to get away from toxins and after reading reviews I decided to try Lavilin. It took me a little while to adjust to the fact that I was sweating (profusely) but there was absolutely no trace of bacterial odor! So even though I will apparently have to buy this expensive deodorant more often than most, I WILL, because I don't smell. I sweat! But I don't smell!! Amazing stuff.
Rebecca March 12, 2014
Just tried a sample of this and it works great! I have to give it 2 stars because I am surprised to see that they use modified potato starch which means it's Genetically Modified, or GMO. I was happy to see that no other bad chemicals were being used, but you can clearly see the ingredients above and this to me is the only thing that bothers me about this item. I don't want to eat GMOs and I don't want it absorbed through my skin either!
Thora March 28, 2014
i hv been using it since the beginning :) and i never regretted it.
re: the thingies inside the container - i know that we have got GMO issues and other stuff but
we still eat things we have NO idea about. Public relations can do so much.
GMO is so vastly spread that we are/became unable to trace it.
i do organic at home but is organic REALLY organic? - or do we always have to write:
can contain whatever? - so - i will die one day - for whatever reason but i am happy so far :)
Margaret April 25, 2014
I find if I use soap to wash under my arms, I need to reapply the cream. I have not tried the unscented roll on but it does not have any modified ingredients... no GMOs. Will be trying the roll on soon.
Nina May 7, 2014
I have been using this product for over 10 years. I perspire heavily (especially when I perform yoga) and have'nt had to replace my deodorant for 2-4 days. It is economical and superior to any deodorant that is on the market.
Cathy May 27, 2014
I've been using this for a few years. Unlike most other reviewers, I need to apply this everyday to prevent odour, but in saying that it does a pretty good job, so much so that I've kept using it. With a morning application, by the evening I do have b.o., but somehow it smells more natural and tolerable (even a little attractive! pheremone-y??) than the b.o. I used to get with standard grocery store deoderants. Evening applications don't seem to work for me. I've solved the yick factor of residue on my fingers by applying my morning ablutions in this order: shower, facial moisterizer, lavilin, body cream on my legs. Using the facial moisturizer helps to stop the lavilin from sticking to my fingers, and applying body cream after the lavilin gets the residue off my fingers more efficiently than washing my hands. FYI I've used this on 10 day backpacking trips, and it seems to work great with daily application despite not being able to wash up properly.
Michelle Fish June 3, 2014
I've been using this product for many years, but I sweat profusely, and find that it does not work come the summer heat or if I need longterm protection for an event or party. There is a slight fragrance, but I find it well tolerated. I have to apply it everyday in order to get protection.
D Marie July 7, 2014
Margaret - Modified Food Starch is made by altering starch to change its inherent properties. Modified potato starch does not necessarily mean genetically modified. Lavilin should clarify their source of potato starch. It's a relevant question considering that most people looking for a natural deodorant would want a product that is GMO free.
Emmie King July 10, 2014
This is THE best and most effective deodorant I have ever used. A friend from the USA told me about it 2 years ago and I am still using the original pot. It WORKS! I do not sweat heavily so just need the barest smear. I've even applied it immediately after shaving without ill effect. I don't need to apply it every day so it is also the most cost effective option for me. Thanks for a great product, Lavilin :)
