If you live in a part of the country where temperatures are soaring, chances are you need a strong deodorant. But what to use?
Many people are sensitive to antiperspirants containing aluminum salts such as aluminum chlorohydrate. We won’t even touch the whole controversial question of whether aluminum is bad for your brain.
Several years ago we heard from a reader of our newspaper column that milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide) was a terrific deodorant when applied to the underarms. When most people think of milk of magnesia (MoM) they think oral laxative. Phillip’s Milk of Magnesia in the familiar blue bottle was introduced in 1872.
We have found that MoM does indeed work great as a deodorant. But applying it can be challenging. It is messy to pour liquid MoM into the palm of your hand and then slap it into your armpits. That is why we developed The People’s Pharmacy Milk of Magnesia Roll-On Deodorant. Find it here.
Here is what some people say about MoM as a deodorant:
“I am a 63 year old male who is over 300 pounds. I work in an un-air-conditioned factory. Yesterday it was 96 degrees F. and today 98 degrees F. I sweated profusely and there was NO ODOR at all! The People’s Pharmacy MoM deodorant does work and has no irritation. Now that’s a true test.”
And then there is this:
“I have always had bad underarm odor. I have tried a million anti-perspirants, including the clinical ones, and even Certain-Dri which burned a lot and was extremely uncomfortable. It stopped the sweat, but I still had odor.
“I went to a dermatologist and have tried everything in the book from Dry-Sol to charcoal tablets; all gave me bad side effects.
“I tried MoM and have had very good results. I have a little break-through sweating, but it doesn’t smell. I have been very satisfied, and am happy that I have finally found something that works for me, without bad side effects.”
