Milk of Magnesia Roll-On Deodorant from the People's Pharmacy
Four years ago, Joe and Terry Graedon first learned that Milk of Magnesia can be used as a terrific deodorant that does not irritate the skin. The only problem was the inconvenience of using bottled milk of magnesia, and how to apply it to the underarms without spilling, dripping or running onto clothes.
Now, The People's Pharmacy is proud to offer our own Milk of Magnesia deodorant in a convenient roll-on.
- Roll-on bottle is convenient and easy to use
- Gentle, effective deodorant
- Absolutely no aluminum chlorohydrate
- Gentler than most commercial products
- Unscented, fragrance free
People wonder how Milk of Magnesia deodorant works. Our chemist hypothesizes:
Our Eccrine and Apocrine glands secrete an odorless mixture of salts, sugars, amino acids, ions, urea, and possibly some lipids.
Microbial action on these secretions produce underarm odor.
Since Magnesium Hydroxide is alkaline, it creates an inhospitable environment for microorganisms. (The Roll on is nearly preserved just by the MgOH)
No microorganisms: no odor.
- Magnesium Hydroxide
- Bentonite: Natural clay that suspends the Magnesium Hydroxide and keeps it from compacting in the container
- Ethylhexylglycerin & Capryl Glycol: Naturally derived preservative system the also contributes to deodorancy
I bought your new MOM deodorant on Friday and it was sitting in my mailbox on Saturday. Amazing service!!! I've tried it and am, quite honestly, amazed. I've suffered with terrible underarm odor all my life and cannot believe this works as well as it does. I'm still waiting till the dogs days of summer to put it to the real test, but so far, it has out-performed even the best anti-perspirants I've used. You've turned a skeptic into a believer. My heartfelt thanks.
We developed this product because of countless testimonials from our readers about the effectiveness of using Milk of Magnesia as a deodorant. Here are just a few:
I just tried Milk of Magnesia (MoM) as an underam deodorant and it works GREAT! I couldn't believe it. I teach step and hi/lo aerobics for a living and I get very sweaty and stinky. The MoM worked through three straight hours of weights and aerobics and I smell fresher than when I use deodorant.
I read your comments about using Milk of Magnesia as a deodorant, and was very skeptical. I am shocked and gleefully excited to say that it works! I put a little on this morning. Today it is in the upper 80s and humid, and I am still dry and fresh. I have suffered with strong underarm odor since I was 12 years old and believe me, as a woman it is embarrassing. I am so happy to have found something that works. I just wish I had known about this sooner!
I have been using Milk of Magnesia ever since I read about it in The People's Pharmacy. It is great!! For years I have had problems with terrible itching. I started on the Milk of Magnesia and no itching, no odor, no residue on clothing. A little goes a long way.
I break out when I use regular deodorant. I use MoM as deodorant and also in the creases where my skin touches. The redness disappears after applying the MoM. This is especially helpful in the warm months. I thank People's Pharmacy for the wonderful tip.
I've had bad underarm odor for more than 50 years, and it is a terrible social problem. Then I read your column about using milk of magnesia on the armpits. I tried it and IT'S A MIRACLE. I no longer use any other deodorant and, most important, I no longer have body odor. Thank you for a simple solution for this complex problem. I have been B.O. free for eight weeks.
I have been using Milk of Magnesia as a deodorant for more than 35 years. When using MoM I barely sweat in the underarm area and I do not have any issues or concerns with underarm odor. It also works well on the feet and the groin area if needed. I wonder why more people are not aware of this alternative.
I heard the idea of using MoM on The People's Pharmacy radio program on the very day I decided to find an alternative to aluminum-based antiperspirants. It does work great, and I have been using it on my feet too, where it also works great. I've found that when I'm really hot, I do sweat some and have a little odor but once the sweat dries, there's absolutely no odor on me or my clothes.
Thanks for suggesting MoM for underarm odor. I tried it last night and woke up with no stinky underarm odor. I put some on this morning to go to work and I still do not have any stinky odor. Thank you so much!
