How Deodorants Work
Deodorants work by killing off the bacteria that grows in your armpit and they add a perfume. Typical deodorants use alcohol to kill off bacteria. An odour is produced by the bacteria which decomposes the sweat. Anti-perspirants work by plugging the sweat ducts. Most anti-perspirants contain aluminium salts, which dissolve in the sweat and produce a gel to cover the sweat glands. Natural deodorants use natural ingredients to prevent odour.
Deodorants don’t block your sweat glands but will mask a bad odour. Sweating is normal and helps your body regulate its temperature. My husband is an electrician and often has to work in hot lofts in summer. He was a total anti-perspirant user and it took some nagging to get him to try my natural POSY deodorant. He used it, went back to his anti-perspirant and then came home one hot summer day and said will you make me some deodorant. He found that he was able to not feel as hot and bothered when using POSY and he actually did not sweat that much either. His body was able to regulate his temperature naturally. So he has happily made the switch to a natural deodorant.
The yellow stains that happen on your clothes are due to the salts in anti-perspirant mixing with your sweat which then gets absorbed into your clothes. Over time, more residue builds up on your clothes and yellows the stain.
Here is a testimonial from a customer “My dear niece has been born with Type 1 diabetes. Throughout her growing up it was impossible to find any deodorant that didn't interact with her sweat. She has tried all brands she got her hands on but no matter the price, every single one caused yellowing under arms or yellow crusting on any fabric she wore. That is until this April when I gave her one of your deodorants. Being 21 and near summer, she began her anxious planning of having spare tops on hand when these yellowing patches begin to show, when I pulled out your deodorant. Since then she had no issues/interactions nor side effect and this is 1st time in her life she can raise her arms with confidence. Your product gave her confidence and it’s been called 'The magical stick' by our family.”
