Is there such a thing as an aluminum free deodorant that actually works?

I use a salt crystal, but now that I think about it, I’m not sure if there aluminum salts in it or not.

Try a paste of baking soda and water. Experiment while wearing an old t-shirt to see whether decoction leaves rings or not.

the salt crystal doesn’t have aluminum. it seems to work for me.

the SO is also anti-aluminum and used to use a common brand. i can’t think of what it was at the moment (i’m sure it will come to me as soon as i no longer have computer access). recently he switched to a different brand that he gets at whole foods. both worked great. i’ll get back to you on the brand names…

Trader Joe’s sells these. As do Food Cooperatives and stores that sell organic stuff.

They work just fine.

Alra non-metallic deodorant was recommended by my doctor when I started radiation therapy treatments and I’ve continued to use it. It works well for me and has a mild fragrance. You can order it online.

By the way, the crystal deodorants are made of alum, which does contain aluminum.

The one I’ve found that has the lowest Doesn’t Work level has been Terra. But nothing works like good ol Arm and Hammer.

Alra is also the only one that I know of.
