I have used this product for about 3 months and I am happy to report that my whites have stayed white! I have been searching for years to find a deodorant that would not stain my clothes and this is the most effective. Most of the natural deodorants leave me sweaty and stinky but this one is great! Highly recomended.

The product is a clear liquid when you roll it on. There is no immediate staining. Also, because it does not contain Aluminum zirconium tetrachlorohydrex gly, it will not cause yellowing in the armpits of your clothes like antiperspirants do.

No, but wait until it is completely dry before you put your blouse on. The product is really wet so it takes a while to dry. While it won't stain your shirt it will look like you have completely soaked sweaty pits if you don't let it dry:)

I can't use antiperspirants because the aluminum irritates my skin, I thought this one didn't till I used it, then I read the ingredients. It does, and if that irritates your skin, this definitely till.

Although this product is not completely aluminum free, the sales person explained that is has less aluminum (or a milder form of it) than most deodorants. I have found that aluminum free deodorants just do not work for me at all so this one is a nice compromise. Doesn't stain my clothes like over the counter clinical strength deodorants.

This item has Aluminum Chlorohydrate, which is different to the sort of aluminum (Aluminum Chloride and Aluminum zirconium tetrachlorohydrex gly) that is found in antiperspirants. This product is NOT an antiperspirant. Aluminum Chlorohydrate is listed as the second ingredient in the product, just after water. Hope that helps.

Question
How Long To Dry?
How long does this take to dry on your skin after you apply it? I generally stay away from roll-ons because I hate how sticky and ooky they are but this product seems to get such great reviews, so might consider it. But it depends on the drying time.

I also can't understand the rave reviews. On me, the product took forever to dry and felt sticky afterwards. It felt less wet after 20 minutes but still sticky (and I was in air conditioning and not sweating). I gave up after an hour and jumped back in the shower.

Yeah, I wondered about that too but it dries within 5 minutes. Even if you do see a wet spot on your clothes after putting this on, it dries clear and doesn't leave a stain or anything... It's GOOD, get it!

It'll take about 10 minutes to fully dry which is why I put it on after I shower and go about doing my makeup and hair after. It gives it enough time to dry. I just put it on and continue with my routine.

I personally dont understand all the stellar reviews, this product took much much too long to dry IMO. I actually dont felt like it ever really dried, just rubbed off enough to where I couldnt feel it so much anymore. Maybe if I had 10 minutes in the morning to dedicate to standing in front of a fan with my arms in the air to wait for my deodorant to dry, this would be a winner. Alas, I do not.

This one worked for me, and I can be stinky. The other brand that works well for smell is Clean. I prefer this one because it is gentler: the Clean one irritated my skin after I shaved. However, the Clean one really eliminates odor.

Yes, the deodorant smells like lemon and that helps with the smell, it even lasts the next day, so i think this could work for you. I have used other deodorants in the past and this is the best one.

Question
does it have aluminum or anything unnatural

answer 1
Define natural... aluminum is an element so the chemist in me balks at the distinction. If you want one without any aluminums that works, there's a stone crystal that comes in spray form and in a rock - I know L'Occitane has at least the rock.
Here is a complete ingredient list, in order (so from highest percentage to lowest): water, aluminum chlorohydrate, propylene glycol, methyl gluceth-20-hydroxyethylcellulose, rosemary leaf oil, litsea cubea fruit oil, lemon peel oil, eucalyptus leaf oil, lavender oil, cardamom oil, ppg-26-buteth-26, phenoxyethanol,, tetrasodium EDTA, limonene, citral, linalool, geraniol

It has Aluminium chlorohydrate which is defined as a group of salts having the general formula AlnCl(3n-m)(OH)m. It is used in deodorants and antiperspirants and as a flocculant in water purification.

There is aluminum chlorohydrate in this, but I wouldn't say it's an effective antiperspirant, even if that's what that ingredient is intended for.

This is listed as a deodorant, not an anti-perspirant. However, I have noticed after months of use that I sweat less, despite the fact that I started using the product in December and it is now mid-June and the humidity has increased a lot in my area. The yellowing stains in shirts have stopped too, which is nice.

As someone with super-sensitive skin, I can tell you this is a good choice. I have gotten red blotches from some deodorants (even all-natural ones), and this one didn't do that. It's super gentle and didn't stain anything.
