It is hard to believe that cold weather is almost a distant memory after this nasty winter, but in a few weeks you will be sweating and smelling. We are extending our milk of magnesia (MoM) Roll-On Deodorant sale. Act now and get 20% off our original formula MoM.

Here is what visitors to this website have recently said about milk of magnesia as a deodorant:

"What a surprise! Milk of Magnesia actually seems to work as a deoderant...and alleviates the concern about exposure to aluminum. Thanks People's Pharmaacy!" L.W.


"I have been using Milk of Magnesia roll-on for several years. For me, it is more effective than any of the typical commercial deodorants. It lasts longer, doesn't stain or itch, and has no odor of its own. MoM may not work for everyone but I find it superior to other products." Richard


"My husband and I both use milk of magnesia as a deodorant. We pour it into a smaller holder which we even take traveling. We shake it and then place a small amount on our finger tips. Then we place on our underarms.

"My husband was skeptical at first but it worked. Now he is now a believer too." S.K.


PEOPLE'S PHARMACY RESPONSE:

S.K., The only problem with using milk of magnesia from the drugstore (in the familiar blue bottle) is that the manufacturers use bleach (sodium hypochlorite) as a preservative. We're not sure we would want a chlorine bleach-preserved product on our underarms. In addition, carrying liquids on airplanes is frowned upon these days unless you use a 3 oz container or smaller.


"I've been using your MoM deodorant for a while now. It stops odor well, but since it's not an antiperspirant my clothes still get wet from sweat. I've found that letting the MoM dry and then dusting my armpits with cornstarch keeps me dry longer. The cornstarch is in a shake bottle like talcum powder. I will say that if I'm going to an important event I just put on regular antiperspirant. I figure a little aluminum once in a while isn't going to hurt." Judy


"I've been using the MoM deodorant for a couple of years now and really like it. I had some doubts about its effectiveness initially but once I started, it works great. The hardest part of switching to a deodorant is the initial wetness you notice but since I had made the switch to a deodorant already, there was no transition from the "crystal" roll on deodorant to the MoM one.

 "I love it and live in Florida where it really needs to work in the summer and I have no problems. Thanks Peoples Pharmacy!!" Diana


"I had been using regular deodorant (NOT anti-perspirant) for years, and about two years ago I switched to People's Pharmacy Roll-On Milk of Magnesia deodorant. It has worked beautifully for me.

"I gave some to my daughter, but she didn't get the same results. Could be that she's not as persistent as I. I think it may take a week or two for your body to adjust--particularly if you've been using an anti-perspirant." R.S.H.


PEOPLE'S PHARMACY RESPONSE:

Some people find that MoM doesn't do the job. This is a personal preference and only experimentation will tell if MoM is right for you.


"A friend who had breast cancer told me about the toxins in anti-perspirants and suggested MoM. I have been using it for about nine years and found it works much better than other 'natural' deodorants I have tried." B.C.


"I bought the MoM product also and it worked well for me. I'm not sure I would want my body to stop sweating - armpits are very close to lymph nodes, which are part of the body's system to get rid of bad stuff. Sweating is part of the body's way to get rid of toxins. I don't want to smell, so I'm happy with deodorants instead of antiperspirants.

"I also started buying aluminum free baking powder and baking soda for cooking. Aluminum is a known neurotoxin, so I decided I didn't want to be eating it, either." J.B.


"I love your MoM deodorant! Been using it for years and have turned many people onto it. Works just as well for me on a hot summer hike as the antiperspirants I used to use. And I've tried everything from Whole Foods in the past and most natural deodorants were useless, just a temporary cover up.

"I use your MoM 100% of the time and will never use anything else." C.


Anyone who wants to try our MoM Original-Formula Roll-On Deodorant can take advantage of our 20%-Off sale. Just put MOM20 into the discount code when checking out. If you already love MoM, pass it along to a friend. It's an unusual "gift" but one that just might be appreciated!
