It's been at the top of Amazon's charts for over a year because shoppers (like me) can't stop buying it.

Kopari

If you've long doubted the power of an all-natural deodorant and like me, chalked them up to being a nice idea but not a competent alternative to your typical antiperspirant, this Amazon best-seller is here to prove you wrong.

After selling out five times, Kopari's aluminum-free, coconut oil deodorant is finally back in stock on Amazon and here to make you smell fresh just in time for the hottest season of the year. Unlike other deodorants and antiperspirants on the market, this natural option smells good, is good for you, and prevents your underarms from turning into a breeding ground for odor-causing bacteria thanks to its unique formula. In other words, it actually works. (Related: Ashley Graham Revealed Her Favorite Natural Deodorant—and You Can Shop It On Amazon)

To buy: $14, amazon.com.

The clear deodorant is made from a combination of coconut water, sage oil, and coconut oil, which makes it incredibly moisturizing and sweet smelling (who doesn't love the smell of coconut?). While it won't prevent you from sweating entirely like a traditional antiperspirant, it will fend off smelly bacteria thanks to coconut oil's and sage oil's inherent antibacterial properties.

It's also formulated without sulfates, parabens, silicone, and phthalates. And for those with extra sensitive skin, there's also a fragrance-free version that's designed to be non-irritating.

After trying several all-natural deodorants over the years, I was always unimpressed and therefore, continued to use my trusty antiperspirant. I wanted to ditch my go-to, which is made with aluminum and various chemicals, but not at the cost of pit stains or body odor. Most of the options I tried from popular brands smelled too earthy for me and did nothing to prevent my natural stench from cropping up after a few hours.

While I still reach for my traditional antiperspirant for 5k races or special events, I regularly swap it out for this all-natural alternative—especially if I know I'm going to spend the day sitting at my office desk or hanging out at home. I've also found it to be powerful enough to prevent me from feeling embarrassed or smelling up my workout class on the few occasions I forgot to apply something stronger before heading to the gym.

And though it's not advertised to prevent sweat, I also noticed significantly less perspiration than if I wore nothing at all. I figure that reducing the amount of chemicals I'm applying to my underarms—even if I'm not giving up my antiperspirant entirely—is better than doing nothing at all.

Tons of Amazon shoppers—including the hundreds of users that gave it a five-star review—agree with me and rave about its subtle scent, powerful odor reduction, and gentle formula. No wonder it's been at the top of Amazon's best-sellers chart for an entire year. (Related: 7 All-Natural Deodorants That Actually Work)

Since the brand offers a full refund for those who aren't fully satisfied, you can give it a test for 60 days without sweating the cost. What's more, Prime members (or anyone who signs up for a free 30-day trial) can score a discount by subscribing to auto-deliveries. If you like it as much as me, you'll want monthly deliveries to ensure you always have a stick on hand.
