Seventh Generation Deodorant
"I have been using this from my local store for a few years now. When I first started using this, I stunk, and had a rash for about 2 weeks, and I hated it! However, if you're someone who uses regular deodorant at least once a day for years and years (20 years for me), your body goes through a "detox" from the aluminum and chemicals in your normal deodorant. It's uncomfortable at first, and your first instinct is to throw it out and go back to what you know (trust me, the first time I tried it, I have it up after a couple days, and after learning what was happening, I went back), you have to stick it out and give your body a chance to finish it's detox from the aluminum and chemicals. Now that I'm over the rough patch, I don't have the stink or the break outs anymore, and I also have smoother and brighter armpits (I used to get razor bumps and my armpits were substantially darker than the rest of my skin), my skin has evened out and I no longer get bumps. I also don't sweat as much and when I do sweat, there's no funky smell, my pits smell like the scent of the deodorant I use. I also don't need to apply deodorant multiple times a day, whereas before, I would reapply after a hot day of yard work, or chasing after kids, or a day full of hot flashes (which is worst than a hot day of yard work). Since making the switch, the changes are amazing, and totally worth the couple weeks of discomfort." — Stacey L.
