Dr. Squatch Vs Native Deodorant – Battle It Out

This post is about Dr. Squatch vs Native Deodorant. These two deodorants are, in my mind, great deodorants. I love both of them and highly recommend both of them. That being said, I would like to highlight both positives and negatives of both deodorants in order to help you better determine which product is right for you.

What Are My Favorite Deodorants From Both Companies

Dr. Squatch

First, my favorite from the Dr. Squatch line of deodorants is, hands down, the Pine Tar Deodorant. This, for me, is what a man should smell like woodsy, fresh, and clean. Dr. Squatch nails this scent. I have written a full review here if you are interested in learning more about what makes this a fantastic deodorant here: What Is The Best Smelling Dr. Squatch Deodorant?

Native Deodorant

I will be the first to tell you I haven’t tried every single deodorant in their long line of deodorants, but by far and away, one of my all-time favorites is the Native Coconut & Vanilla Deodorant. I would categorize this as a uni-sex scent for both males and females. But don’t be put off by this fact. It just works with anybody. The smell is so fresh, clean, light, and mass-appealing. It is very pleasing the coconut is not in your face like tanning lotion is. It is a more subdued coconut but also present and blends well with the vanilla. Get it; it is terrific.

How Do They Compare?

Scents Available

First off, it needs to be said that Native Deodorant takes the lead in the sheer number of scents available in their deodorants. This gives you a lot more options in finding and choosing a scent than Dr. Squatch does. This is a major advantage. Dr. Squatch is a newer company than Native and has less depth with scent selection.

Also, Native has scents for women and men as well as unisex scents, while Dr. Squatch purely caters to men’s grooming products. So, if you are a woman, Native Deodorant would be the only real option and choice.

Which One Smells Better?

This is purely a subject matter of personal preference and I haven’t used all of both companies’ deodorants I have tried quite a few of both. But I can tell you which scents I love and think most people will like.

I like the best Dr. Squatch in order:

  • Dr. Squatch Pine Tar
  • Dr. Squatch Coconut Castaway
  • Dr. Squatch Birchwood Breeze

I love how this smells.

Native Deodorant’s top three deodorants for me are:

  • Native Coconut & Vanilla
  • Native Sea Salt & Cedar
  • Charcoal.


The good news I have worn both of these deodorants through long shifts at my full-time job and they both stand up and work great. I checked with a sniff test and they both still smell fantastic I can still make out the scent but with no foul odor terminating from my pits.

Both work fantastically!


Both companies have decent ingredients, but I think Native has more straightforward ingredients that are easier to understand. The edge would go to Native.

The Final Thoughts On Dr. Squatch Vs Native Deodorant

Both companies have some great products, but I think for the masses, Native surely wins out over Dr. Squatch overall by sheer numbers alone. However, I love their Pine Tar Deodorant and highly recommend this to men as it is just a fantastic man’s scent.

Native has more scent options and slightly better ingredients. Plus, they have plastic-free containers for those concerned with this matter and a line of deodorants for sensitive skin. While Dr. Squatch only caters to male scents.

Both Companies have great deodorants. The challenge is finding what scent you like the best.

  1. First and foremost sorry if I am being a bit picky here. Dr. Squatch and Native both bring an impressive product to the table and you surely can’t go wrong with either product especially when comparing either brands to the massive corporation brands. The two things that would really differentiate between these two brands would be the use of essential oils in the Dr. Squatch versus the use of artificial fragrance in the Native so Dr. Squatch would have to be given the edge in not using a artificial lab created fragrance for scent. The second and only other thing would be that Native uses Ozokerite in their product which most studies show that it is hygienically safe there are some questions as to if ozokerite contains MOAHs or not and if so that is a known genotoxic carcinogen, not to mention that mining for ozokerite is really bad for the planet even if it is safe for use hygienically so I would offset that with the fact that Dr. Squatch uses the plastic packaging. In conclusion, due to the fact that Dr. Squatch uses natural sources for scent I would give them the edge!

    • Nick,
      Thanks for sharing your thought and you do have some good thoughts that would be very helpful to other people. It is generally hard for most people to decipher the list of ingredients on most products as they use scientific names. But Dr. Squatch does have better fragrance ingredients for sure. As they use essential oils instead of synthetic fragrances oil and such.
      Thanks for the comment!!!
