By now, I have been using natural deodorant for perhaps 8 years (at least). I do not want to be putting toxic chemicals or aluminum on my skin. Trust me when I say I've tried natural deodorant after natural deodorant, I've tried most of the major brands and more. This is the ONLY one that CONSISTENTLY works for me. Others either irritate my skin by leaving rashes and making my skin feel itchy, leave me smelling like I would've been better off using zero deodorant at all, or even leave me with a gross musty smell. This one usually leaves me smelling great. I use the Fresh Fig one, and the smell lasts forever, and to me it's a really yummy sweet smell! The only thing I will say is that if you apply TOO much, it can leave your clothes greasy and stained. I've made that mistake before. Just be sure to only apply a small amount, a little goes a long way remember, and you shouldn't have that problem. My worry is that one day they will stop making this wonderful deodorant - I sure hope not!
