I have an allergy to antiperspirant deodorants, and have had trouble finding products that do not contain aluminium. Does anyone else have this problem?

  • I regularly place an order by iHerb and find their prices relatively good.

  • It’s really hard to find aluminium free deodorants in supermarkets. We buy ours from health food stores that also stock soaps, shampoos etc.

  • I find talcum powder is more efficient then deodorant. I know it’s not always an option.

  • yes i went through a crazy sensitivity to deoderant during my 2nd pregnancy which didn’t go away until i stopped breastfeeding lol. i bought ones from woolies. a lot more expensive for not mainstream deoderant plus they still left me with a muted version of whiffyness lol. i noticed even if no-one else said anything. i have tried not using any (ala cameron diaz, kourtney kardashian) but was too stinky and i felt sorry for my baby lol. I know that you can make your own but i didn’t want to try that.

  • They used to sell some at woolies – goatsmilk, natural ones, tea tree etc – I found they didn’t work for me – I need the heavy duty ones. There’s a crystal you can get – not sure how it works. Maybe check your local pharmacy they seem to be selling a great variety of things these days – maybe moo goo has a product

  • They are out there. I had the opposite problem, had to ask for deodorants with aluminium

  • thanks for the answers provided, i will take a look at these options

  • Natio and also Sukin may be worth exploring for chemical free options?

  • I have used Natio and it was chemical free – might be worth looking at this product range. Health food shops also have chemical free options.
