Hi All;  Bought this product for the wife several months back , that she did not believe could work so why waste the money... I bought it anyway ...as I believe in trying something before condemning it.  Saw this on the shark tank of all places ... Piper Wai, all natural underarm deodorant. Wife insisted that she had tried ALL the natural deodorants available and they only worked on one issue, not all and that made them a BIG waste of money. She absolutely did not believe the claims....   Well as you may have guessed... she was wrong !  er a Mistaken ...  This is a product that holds up to all its claims No sweat/no smell and no toxic chemicals slowly killing you  so your (oder) does not offend anyone...  Heck I have even used it a time or two just to try it. It works !  Comes in a small container and you apply it, with a small amount on your finger tip. That easy ... and it lasts quite a while since you only use a small amount. Not the cheapest product out there but worth every penny.  Only available on line (as far as I know) She had almost finished the original container and ordered  two more so she didn't run out ! If the woman in your life is still using the nasty chemicals that are in (regular) underarm deodorant then do yourself a favor and buy some piper wai for her , she will be so happy that you may find yourself with a happy purring woman who feels healthy and smells good ... a win win situation.

I see several other natural deodorants on Amazon, but non of them has the activated charcoal.  Wonder if that might be the most effective ingredient.  Gonna try the Piperwai.

The substance that jumped out at me was the Magnesium hydroxide - its the active ingredient in Milk of Magnesia .
I found this https://www.futurederm.com/should-you-use-milk-of-magnesia-on-your-skin-the-internet-rumor-researched/

The best deodorant I've discovered is 50% baking soda and 50% cornstarch.  It's so simple, and it works.  It doesn't stain fabric of shirts.  And I'm not delicate in that department.

A lot of the ingredients on the list of that deodorant are likely to stain clothing, particularly the oily/butter/waxy ingredients.

The best I have found is plain lemon juice. I put it in a spray bottle and just one spritz after I shower. It lasts at least 24 hours. I don't ever notice any smell whereas before I would get the worst stress-sweat smell even when using commercial deodorant. I also stopped using soap and I believe that helps as well to preserve the acid mantle and all. Cheap and simple
 
What a stench! Central nervous system shutting down. Save yourself tiny ad!
