Our deodorant contains a vegetable protein commonly used in food and hospital facilities to neutralize the enzymes that cause odor to a simple salt. It is free of aluminum or bacteriacides that have been a concern with long term use. It is both effective and an alternative to commercial products. Because it's free of aluminum, it won't actually stop you from sweating (which is a natural body process) but it'll keep you smelling fresh. This is a solid gelled stick that glides on easily and is packaged in a twist up tube.
