Q. I am looking for a deodorant that is just a deodorant, not an antiperspirant as well. I can’t seem to find one. Your recommendation?
A. Some readers recommend baking soda. One suggested, “Take a wet washcloth and dip it in baking soda, then apply under your arms. It does not stop you from sweating, but it stops you from smelling.” Others prefer milk of magnesia as an underarm deodorant.
There is a growing controversy about the safety of ingredients in most antiperspirants. To read about the latest research and find links to the original data click here.
