I don't think I'm a particularly stinky or strong-smelling person, but I have noticed that thus far none of the non-toxic deodorants I've tried work. Some (like Tom's) work sometimes, but then on days when I really sweat forget about it. So far the best I've found is Aubrey's 'E Plus High C' .
I'm in Germany, the world leader in natural cosmetics, and yet still all the brands I've tried here (Dr. Hauschka, Lavera, etc) leave me smelling after a long day at work. So do I have to just resign myself to this if I want to avoid harsh chemicals? I suppose I can just bring it with me and reapply throughout the day, but if possible I'd rather not. Please share if you've found a deodorant that actually leaves you not smelling after a long day. I'll be in the US soon and can stock up.
And while we're on the topic, I avoid anti-perspirants as they all contain aluminum (as far as I know), but yet sometimes I notice I have sweat stains under my arms at work, which is not very nice in that situation. I don't mind sweating per se, I think the body needs to and I don't want to stop that, but for work sometimes I'd love to find a non-aluminum, non-toxic anti-perspirant. Does such a thing exist?
