I use the Malin and Goetz deodorant. I made the switch after reading somewhere that the aluminum in anti-perspirants can contribute to Alzheimers.
I am sick and tired of staining on my shirts and have been researching causes and solutions and the jury seems to be out. Some claim that is purely sweat that is causing it, some claim that it is a result of the aluminum in the antiperspirant mixing with sweat to cause the staining.
I am curious to see what everyone else does. I am not a huge sweater, but do find that I am staining shirts pretty regularly. I have recently picked up some deodorants to try and see if they can cut down on the staining, but also concerned that I will have excessive sweating without the anti-perspirant.
Yes. The aluminum is what shrinks your pores and controls sweating. But it isn't exactly good for you. I am looking for any other alternatives that work to control sweating. I have switched to a plan deodorant this week and find that I really don't sweat all that much. I never really have pit stains etc so I am sure it is the anti perspirant causing the yellow. Nasty.
Approved OTC antiperspirant active ingredients in the Code of Federal Regulations are all aluminum salts.
