Store bought deodorants contain toxic ingredients linked to disease that are best avoided like: aluminum (metal), parabens (synthetic preservative), propylene glycol (petroleum derived), phthalates (used as a plasticizer), and triclosan (pesticide). YIKES! This all natural deodorant recipe is very gentle and effective, but since everyone is different .
