Schmidt Natural Deodorant Review: Stop Awful Odor From Your Pits

Schmidt Natural Deodorant Review

Hi everyone,

today I am going to share with all of you the Schmidt natural deodorant review. Honestly, we all want to smell pleasant whenever we leave the house (oops… at home too!).

We all need deodorants to achieve that. There are so many bacteria living in our armpits that enjoy sweat to the fullest and then they produce the gasses which smell very bad when they break down sweat.

Sweat itself does not smell bad, although in our armpits it contains proteins and fats that could smell bad over time. However, the bacteria that feasts on our sweat enjoy the proteins and bacteria multiply rapidly. So if we don’t do anything with it, we smell bad after only after a few hours.

The good news is that there are great products that help with the sweating problem.

Who Came Up With Schmidt Natural Deodorant?

When deodorants first came up in the late 1800s, conventional deodorants became the norm very quickly. However, in recent years, many people have been looking for a more natural and holistic approach to products they use on their bodies.

People want to make sure that whatever products they use will not leave secondary unwanted effects on their health.

Janie Schmidt is among those that wanted something else for her family. As a young woman from Oregon, she was well aware that conventional deodorants could not give her what she was looking for.

Instead of seeking out for alternatives on the market, she decided to try to make her own. It did take a lot of research and hard work to finally come up with an alternative to what was found on the market. But this deodorant was everything else than conventional. This deodorant, what is now the famous Schmidt Natural Deodorant, was 100% natural, cruelty-free alternative to those that had many chemicals that Mrs. Schmidt did not want.

Naturally, if you have come up with a great idea and it works, you start to share it with your neighbors, family, and friends. That is exactly what Mrs. Schmidt did. In no time her circle of friends had asked her for the deodorant. And she was more than happy to share her knowledge with them because she realized that people do not know much about deodorants.

Local news spread quickly, and in no time, the new deodorant was a favorite. Neighbors pushed Mrs. Schmidt to expand. Only a few years after launching, this product is internationally sold and well accepted.

What Does Schmidt Natural Deodorant Contain?

Instead of the common parabens, zinc, and many other chemicals and ingredients found in conventional deodorants, this deodorant uses only top natural products.

The secret behind this proven formula is arrowroot powder, shea butter, baking soda, jojoba seed oil, coconut oil, and candelilla wax.

This deodorant also contains Vitamin E, which helps our skin. Many people have very sensitive skin in their armpits, which is why many fear new deodorants like I do. I have tried so many conventional deodorants in the past and most of them give me a terrible rash after using them for 3 days.

Mrs. Schmidt thought about those that have sensitive skin and added Vitamin E to prevent the other ingredients from causing a rash or irritation.

And one last ingredient that Schmidt Natural Deodorant uses is essential oil. This gives the deodorant a final touch because depending on the oil that is used, is what you will smell during the day.

Essential oils are so strong that they can cause a rash and irritation as well, thus vitamin E.

As you can see, there is wetness absorbing ingredients like baking soda, which will help to stay dry a little longer.

However, don’t be fooled like I was when first using wetness absorbing deodorants. I suffer from hyperhidrosis and that is why that does not work on me. The small amount of baking soda is simply not enough to help you stay dry when you sweat excessively.

Deodorants do not reduce sweating, they just help to absorb wetness. If you sweat too much or you would love to sweat less, you need to take a look at my favorite antiperspirants, which will do that job very well.

What Is So Special About This Deodorant? Schmidt Natural Deodorant Review

The number one reason to buy this product is that of the natural ingredients. I love 100% natural products in my household because they give me peace of mind. The fewer chemicals we have in our homes, the better.

Natural deodorants are not just cool because they are natural, you will only want to buy them if they are effective. Schmidt Natural Deodorant has not disappointed their customers, even though not everybody is 100% happy with the product. Check out the Amazon ratings: +50% 5-star from over 5,000 verified customers. That is a great number, considering that this statistic has been taken from only a few scents. There are many others that are very well liked by their customers.

I will go a little more into detail shortly on why some customers are not happy with this deodorant.

Environmentally friendly products, like the Schmidt Natural Deodorant, are also always welcome. This family business is dedicated to bringing the best product to your home, without compromising your health and nature. It is always great to find those.

Something very important to me when buying a product is customer service. The Schmidt company has that covered very well. Because they have tried their products in their own family, they know what they are talking about and what to expect from their customers.

They stand out in their customer service because a family owned business usually takes clients serious because that is what they depend on. If you encounter a problem with their product, a quick email will do and they will get back to you. They are listening to you and ready to help and assist. Because they tested the products on themselves, they also have great tips on using the product.

These are a few reasons why I can recommend this product.

What Is Not So Great About Schmidt Deodorant?

As always, there are downsides to each product and this deodorant is no exception to that rule.

One thing that is not great about this product is the fact that it stains your clothes. Natural deodorants are supposed not to stain your clothes, but somehow this formula does.

Although staining is far less than in conventional deodorants, be aware that you could see some stains after using this product continuously. The formula for this product is especially unfriendly to your clothes, unlike many other natural products.

Another issue that I have with natural deodorants is that, depending on where you live, you can have a hard time finding the correct room temperature for them. If you let them get too hot, they will be too soft and you put on too much. If they get too cold, you can hardly get enough into your pits. Yet, that is no reason to not buy them. Just find the right spot to put them so you don’t encounter this problem.

Skin irritation is very common in this product. Although it contains vitamin E, if you have very sensitive skin, you could face this problem. If you are used to conventional deodorants, you know that we like to put on an extra amount to go on the safe side. With natural deodorants, the less you put on, the better it is. There is no difference in putting on very much or very little. Take that into account when buying this product.

The last thing that I dislike about natural products is the price. You get what you pay: Top grade natural ingredients, compared to conventional ingredients that are less expensive and easy to get ahold of. If you consider buying natural products, it is important to know that you will be paying hefty prices for natural deodorants. That is the sacrifice to make when going the natural way.

Check out the price for this product here.

Why Do People Complain About This Product? Schmidt Natural Deodorant Review

If you read through reviews on any given natural deodorant, you will find that most of the complaints are very much alike.

I will share 3 common complaints and give an answer to each one:

1) “My armpits are turning dark.”

A very common problem is that armpits tend to turn dark after switching from conventional deodorants to natural deodorants. That usually freaks people out.

The matter of the fact is that you accumulate chemicals in your armpits during the time you use conventional deodorants.

Be advised that these dark spots will go away after sticking to natural products. It takes time until your body can get rid of all those chemicals that got their way into the pores of your skin.

Also, dark armpits can be a sign of clogged pores, which means that all those chemicals are somehow blocking sweat from coming out and clean everything out.

When buying the Schmidt Natural deodorant, don’t worry too much about those dark armpits.

Give it some time. It is usually not anything serious. Exfoliation could be necessary.

2) “My armpits smell terrible when using natural deodorants.”

This is another common question that is asked when people change from conventional deodorants to natural ones. The answer is similar to the previous one.

Until your body gets rid of the accumulation of chemicals, it can be quite some time and you have to give your body time to settle with this change.

My wife recently switched to natural deodorants, and fortunately, she did not have to go through the detoxing process, most likely because her body was able to shove chemicals out effectively after every use.

But, if a bad smell is of concern, mask it with some extra perfume and a frequent shower and exfoliation, until the problem is solved.

3) “My skin gets very irritated

History of Deodorant And Antiperspirant: Learn About It Here

history of deodorant

Hey guys,

today I am back to talk a little about history. Who likes to hear that? Often time people tell me that history sucks and there is no use in it. To a certain degree we live today and what lies a hundred years behind might not be appealing to hear. However, there are interesting facts about many things that we do not even think about today.

So, I am going to talk a little about the history of deodorant and antiperspirant. Why is that relevant?

150 years ago people did not use deodorant at all. They did not use anything to keep those terrible armpit odors away. In fact, they even did not wash their clothes after wearing them for a long time. I have often wondered how such a thing is at all possible. I feel uncomfortable wearing my shirts for more than a day, especially because I sweat excessively in my armpits.

That is why the history of deodorant and antiperspirant is relevant for me. I like to share a bit how they did it back then and how they managed with armpit odors because they did not have antiperspirants to stop them from sweating nor did they have deodorants to help them smell better.

But before I go more into the history of deodorant and antiperspirant, I will tell you a little about what deodorants and antiperspirants are.

What Are Deodorants?

Although few people don’t sweat at all, most people sweat on a daily basis, some a lot and others less. Sweat is a watery liquid that is produced in our sweat glands. Various triggers make these sweat glands to work and produce sweat, mainly to regulate our body temperature.

Sweat from our apocrine glands, which are located in different areas of our body, including our armpits, rarely smells bad, but bacteria that live in these regions thrive on sweat. The breakdown of sweat caused by these bacteria causes the bad odors.

Deodorants are used to control the bacteria living in warm regions (where they multiply at an incredible rate) to stop bad odors.

Contrary to the belief of many people, deodorants to not stop sweating; they only reduce bacteria to avoid sweat breakdown, which smells bad. If you can control the bacteria effectively, you can sweat a lot and still not sweat.

What are Antiperspirants?

Many people have overactive sweat glands that produce excessive sweat, which these individuals cannot control. People suffering from this condition have what is called hyperhidrosis. There are 2 types of hyperhidrosis and each one of these types can have different causes.

People that sweat a lot have a harder time to find the correct deodorant because they cannot catch up with the rate of multiplication of bacteria. Whatever deodorant they put on, it will have an effect for only a few hours and they will smell bad again.

So, often people that sweat a lot opt for an antiperspirant, that usually contains aluminum chloride, to reduce the sweating, so deodorants will have an effect. That again helps them to have pleasantly smelling armpits.

Therefore, antiperspirants affect the sweat glands directly by blocking them and preventing a person from sweating.

Life In My Community 50 Years Ago

I grew up in a place where people lived without electricity and cars until the 1970s. My grandparents were even shunned by the local church because they were too progressive when they bought their first car.

It took many years of hard work on behalf of community members to progress.

What does that have to do with deodorants? Maybe a lot. Let me show you.

My parents grew up when all radical changes in the community took place and modernization started to kick in. My parents often tell stories about the way they grew up and it is hard to believe that one generation can make such a big change.

Let me record a few of things that I believe are relevant to the history of deodorant and antiperspirant.

How Could People Live With Armpit Odor?

Back in the early 1970’s, people were poor and the wardrobe was extremely small, things were often handed down from older siblings to younger ones, and sometimes even generations down the line.

Church clothes were worn exclusively for church and they were never washed. Baths were taken only once a week, where the whole family shared the same water (unbelievable for me).

In all this, people did not use deodorant. My parents often tell me that back then nobody was offended by the extreme odors people would spread.

Can you imagine a whole week without bathing? The interesting thing though is that they worked physically hard out in the sun. Life was similar to life in a small frontier town. Everybody owned a little piece of land, a few cows, pigs, horses, and chickens, and of course, a small garden. By the weekend, people would not be fresh anymore and definitely needed a bath. Because water was not readily available like we have it today, people were more careful with it.

Growing up in families with 10+ children was not an easy task and cost an awful lot of money, which most of the times was not available. That explains why the wardrobe was scanty and would not be washed. That would keep it new for much longer.

I often wonder if people did not feel dirty after working without being able to take a bath. They must have been used to it, or maybe (just maybe…) nowadays we live too high expectations.

Nevertheless, body odor can become offensive when not tended to in time, but probably they did not notice.

Ancient Deodorant History

If we look to the Greek, Egyptians, Romans and other ancient cultures we find that they already had a notion of masking body odor.

Perfumed baths were very common, for those who could afford. The perfume was also used in armpits, which would help reduce the odors from sweating.

Also, different concoctions from oils were made by these cultures to help with body odor (not only pits). However, most of the perfumes and concoctions that were made did their job partially.

The problem was that most of these did not address the bacteria living in the armpits so it would not be effective for body odor. Perfumes would help more with covering the odor by smelling fresh.

However, we can imagine that it was not effective, except if baths were taken daily (which is not very likely).

After the church took control over everything, people were taught that being naked was really bad, so they even stopped taking baths at all. The last resource of smelling as pleasantly as possible was taken from them.

Life A Few Hundred Years Ago

If we go back in wardrobe history, we will find that people wore thick layers of clothing, especially people from the high society.

If you look at what a noblewoman was dressing for a ball in the 1700s, you will be amazed at how many layers of clothing she had to put on before she was ready. When you think the dress is now complete, there are more layers to follow.

Also, for middle-class men, they did not just wear simple underwear, a pair of jeans and a shirt and done. There was so much to put on before one was ready.

The interesting thing is that they wore many layers of clothes as a nightgown, also for work, and for social activities. There was always so much to put on.

Don’t you think that that was part of the trick to mask bad smells? That also explains, why most of the wardrobe was never washed. It would simply not get dirty, sweaty, or smelly after wearing because there were simply too many layers of clothes.

People back then were aware of the bad odors from the armpits could be nasty. Would you go dancing with a partner that was not fresh? Therefore, they had to find ways to deal with these odors, and they did so by using lots of clothes.

When Were Deodorants Born?

Although there is not much to be found about deodorants that were used before conventional deodorants came to life, I firmly believe that some families must have tried through natural approaches to stop sweat from smelling.

In fact, since there are natural ways to reduce sweating and also natural ways to eliminate bacteria in armpits, methods could have been used long before conventional deodorants came to life.

My grandma used milk as a gel to comb her daughters. That was an easily available resource to fix everyday problems. Too bad she is not here anymore to tell me what she did with body odor.

Back in the late 1880s, in the USA, the first deodorant was developed by Edna Murphy and patented later on. It seems that no other deodorants were patented and invented after this first one for nearly half a century.

However, it was years after WWII that Helen Diserens made the first ball-point deodorants, which was a newly invented technology back then. However, it was still the same deodorant that was invented by Mrs. Murphy.

Deodorants were initially made for women only, and only in the early 1950s, they were also made for men.

From there, it only took a few years before deodorants were a multi-million industry and over 50% of the adult population was using deodorants.

And today, not many cultures can be found that don’t know about deodorants. It is common sense today to use deodorants.

When were Antiperspirants born?

Jules Montenier patented the first antiperspirant in 1941, but it had been formulated since 1903.

Aluminum chloride was used at first, but since it is highly acidic, many people were not able to use it because it caused skin irritation.

Mr. Montenier was able to neutralize the product by using soluble nitrile, which made it more accessible to people.

Nevertheless, in the early 1960s tests were performed on animals. Science and medicine wanted to determine if there were side effects of antiperspirants.

Studies showed that cancer, dementia and other diseases could be traced back to the use of aluminum chloride.

When the light was shed on these facts, antiperspirants became more and more rejected, regardless of the positive effect they had on people that suffered from hyperhidrosis.

Today, around 95% of Americans use deodorants, from home-made to organic, to natural, to conventional, to dab-on, roll-on deodorants. The whole deodorant and antiperspirant business has become an $18 billion dollar industry.

Are Deodorants and Antiperspirants Really Unsafe?

As said, throughout history, researchers have done their best to determine whether aluminum chloride (used in antiperspirants) and parabens (commonly used in deodorants) are detrimental to health.

Do you remember the emails that you received back in the early 2000s that told you to stop using any of these products because you could get cancer and other life-threatening diseases? I do recall those, but I never stopped using deodorants, because I did not know what else to do.

Smell bad all day long? Or continue to use deodorants? It was like a necessary evil, as we use to say.

However, recently, light has been shed on new research that has not found enough evidence to prove the theory spread back in the 60s.

It is believed that either zinc, parabens, aluminum chloride, and others cause as much harm as was once thought. Our skin was designed to protect our body from outside harm. Our skin does everything possible to not let harmful things in. Therefore, research believes that very little of the ingredients found in deodorants and antiperspirants actually comes into our body.

More harm is done to our body by what we smell, eat and drink.

As said before, the history of deodorants and antiperspirants is not only important but also interesting to read about.

It is interesting to see how people have dealt with body odor over time and how it has evolved into something so effective that we have today and is readily available whenever we want and need it.

Crystal Deodorant Review: A Non-Toxic Product That I Love To Use

Last updated on August 1st, 2019 at 03:21 am

crystal deodorant review

When I first learned about the Crystal deodorant, I was still in my early teens and just starting to use deodorants. However, back then I still did not give deodorants much thought and my mom brought this product home one day and asked us to use it. Little did I know what effect it did have.

In this Crystal deodorant review, Ie will look a little closer at the product, where it was born and what it has to offer. I will share what I like about this product and what I do not like that much.

Although I am not passionate about a holistic style of life, I do get thrilled when I see “organic”, “natural”, “non-toxic”, among others words on things that I buy. As I say, it is not my passion to learn all the details about natural products and the bad sides of non-natural products. However, I am always watching what I bring into my house for the family.

Why cause unnecessary danger from products that have questionable long-term effects.

That is where the Crystal body deodorant jumps in. Let me give you a little more detail about this product.

What Is Crystal Deodorant?

Over three decades ago, the maker of this product (who had been very interested in finding a natural, cruelty-free, and toxin-free product), traveled to France.

On this trip, he encountered a water purifying facility which was working with mineral salts. That gave him the idea that if mineral salt could be used to clean water, it must have an effect on bacteria living in our armpits as well.

He was amazed at the results when he was able to prove his theory.

When applied to the armpits, a small layer is formed, which eliminates bacteria that are living there. Since sweat itself does not smell bad, when removing bacteria that produce the awful smell coming from your pits, you will stop smelling bad.

When the maker found that his theory worked, the first Crystal deodorant was born and has proven its effectiveness again and again.

Is Crystal Body Deodorant Safe?

With many emails and notices going around for years about the dangerous lasting effects of aluminum chloride, anyone would be happy to use products that don’t cause breast cancer and many other illnesses.

Also, many are worried about using parabens, aluminum chlorohydrate, aluminum zirconium, and other products that are believed to cause harm.

Although new recent studies contradict these beliefs, why not be on the safer end and avoid them altogether?

With that said, I am happy to tell you that the Crystal deodorant is a 100% natural product that is safe to use for the whole family.

How Effective Is the Crystal Deodorant?

When I started to use this product (which is around two decades ago), I was already sweating excessively. Little did I know about hyperhidrosis, the condition that I have. I was told that this product would reduce sweating, so I started to use it, believing that I would not sweat anymore.

I was completely mistaken. Back then, I did not know the difference between antiperspirants and deodorants, else I would have liked this product very much.

Deodorants do not stop sweating; they are made to stop you from smelling bad. Antiperspirants are the ones that address your sweat glands and block them, thus they stop sweating.

Although I did not smell bad after using this product, I did not stop sweating, in fact, I sweated even more than I did before. Why? Very simply because I had been using a deodorant/antiperspirant, which would reduce my sweating a bit.

I gave up on this product after maybe a year of using and started searching for another product, because I believed this was nothing for me.

Now that I have learned all about deodorants and antiperspirants, I know that this is one of my favorite deodorants because of its properties.

To answer the question if the Crystal deodorant is effective, I can say that this deodorant stops your armpits from smelling bad. Although this company offers variously scented deodorants, the scent-free deodorant sticks out because you will not smell bad from your armpits, and neither will you have a good smell – only neutral, which is great!

What I Like About It

The Crystal deodorant has many things that I really like and why I recommend it to anyone looking for a cheap, natural, and effective deodorant.

1) No stains and sticking

Do you hate yellow stains on your shirts as much as I do? Since I sweat excessively, I do waste many undershirts and shirts because they will get so many stains from all the deodorants that I put on.

Neither will this deodorant leave a white powder in your armpits as many deodorants do. Also, this one is not sticky.

Whenever I buy deodorants, the first thing that I look at if they will make my armpits sticky. I strongly dislike when I feel as if I have glue in my armpits, and need to constantly lift my arms to be comfortable.

With the Crystal deodorant, you will not have this problem.

2) No irritation

I have highly sensitive skin my armpits and I have tried many deodorants but had to throw most of them out after a week of using because they would irritate my skin so badly that I sometimes had to walk with my arms lifted because of a bad rash.

Usually, deodorants contain alcohol, which causes irritation.

Since the Crystal deodorant is a natural, alcohol-free mineral salt, it never irritates the skin. As said, I used this product for well over a year and I never had any problems with those mentioned.

Definitely worth using if you have sensitive skin.

3) 100% natural product

Did I have to mention that? Of course. I have to mention the fact that this product is 100% natural, cruelty-free (which means that it has not been tested on animals), and toxin-free.

If you are worried about what you and your family put in their bodies, rest assured that this product is something you will not regret having bought because you know that this is even beneficial to use.

4) The price.

No deodorant have I found that beats the price of the Crystal deodorant.

But trust me that this product lasts very, very long. In fact, it will probably fall to the floor and shatter to pieces before you can even use it up.  I have only bought one of these in my life so far and it lasted for the year that I used it and it would have lasted even longer.

This deodorant does not look like deodorant at all because when you open it looks more like a stone than a deodorant. You are more likely to break the stone before you use it up.

5) Quality of this product

When I buy a product, I always look for honest reviews, which will tell me more about the quality of the product.

In this case, I am telling you that this product is a great one and recommended for both men and women. However, I am not the only one. With a very high rating from thousands of happy users, this is probably a hidden gem among deodorants.

6) The variety

I love to smell fresh from my armpits and that is why I love the fact that this company has launched a number of products for every user. Nowadays they have different versions of this product, from sprays to scent-free to scented deodorants that all serve the same purpose.

Click here to get a glimpse of the long list of products this company currently offers.

What I Do Not Like About it

As with every product, there are downsides. Having experience with this product, there are two things that I do not like that much about this product, but they honestly do not stop me from buying Crystal deodorant again.

1) This product slips out of your hands

Before you apply this product to your armpits, you have to moisten it with water. Else, you can hardly apply it.

Holding a slippery moist “stone” in your hands is not the best idea. And be warned, whenever it falls, it will most like shatter to small pieces, in which case you have to buy a new one. You can rarely ever go 100% through this deodorant. It is more likely to fall and shatter.

As said, it happened multiple times in my family, since other family members were also using it. We had to buy new ones every so often because of that problem.

I think I used mine until it fell and broke. That is when I looked for an alternative just because I did not stop sweating. Now that I understand that the Crystal deodorant addresses the smell and not the sweating, I know that it is something for me as much as it is for you.

If you want to solve this problem, a good idea is to put rubber bands around the stone, which helps you to have a better grip on it.

2) A bit

Is There A Deodorant That Stops Sweating? Find The Answer Here

Last updated on July 18th, 2019 at 04:40 am

is there a deodorant that stops sweating

We all sweat in our armpits, some more and some less. However, we all hate to get wet in our armpits because that is so uncomfortable.  I have lived it for years and have wondered how to stop it.

So, all we that sweat want to know if there is a deodorant that stops sweating.

Sweating is very important to our bodies because it regulates our temperature. In fact, if we would not sweat, our body temperature can rise to dangerous levels. But sweating gets in our way when we get all sticky, stinky, and uncomfortable.

When our clothes become drenched and have sweat marks all over, or when our armpits begin to smell so bad, sweating also makes us feel socially unacceptable. But there are people, around 2-3% of the population that have this problem day in day out.

These individuals suffer from hyperhidrosis, a condition when people sweat excessively either in their armpits, their head, neck, groin, palms, and feet, but they cannot (at least not in all cases) do anything about it.

There are people that suffer from secondary hyperhidrosis, which is a condition that is caused by health issues, in which cases, sweating is a symptom of a more serious problem. For example, people with heart diseases tend to sweat excessively because their heart has a difficult time getting the blood supply around.

Also, cancer patients often report excessive sweating. Obesity is another common trigger of excessive sweating.

Then there are people, like me, that sweat excessively for an unknown reason. It seems to be a hormonal imbalance, yet no doctor can prescribe medicine that is completely effective. These individuals sweat more when they are nervous, but it seems to happen all the time, no matter what time of year, what climate they live in, or in what circumstances they are.

This condition is called primary hyperhidrosis. The good news is that this condition does not affect your health in any way, nor does it cause any other problems related to our bodies. However, primary hyperhidrosis can be a serious social blocking stone! You have to be really strong to get among people because your focus is on all those ugly sweat marks and how you can see people thinking crazy about you.

I have lived with this condition for many years and shopping for clothes is not even fun because there are only certain colors that you can wear, only certain fabrics if you want to hide your problem.

In short, either primary, secondary hyperhidrosis or just normal sweating can be uncomfortable and annoying to the point where you are looking for a solution.

Is There A Deodorant That Stops Sweating?

For years, I looked for a solution to my problem. I went through the stores and looked at their deodorants and antiperspirants to see which one would work. Some products, like Arm & Hammer, which I have used for years, claims that it controls your sweat and last for long.

But that is simply not true for sufferers of hyperhidrosis. For people that sweat mildly and only when it gets hot or when they do fitness training or similar activities, this deodorant/antiperspirant can be effective. But for me, it never helped.

And I wondered for many years why this product would not help when it claimed to be effective.

After years of living with the fact that no deodorant gave me relief from excessive sweating, I found the answer and I am going to share it with you.

Deodorants Do Not Stop Sweating – Antiperspirants Do

As simple as that: Deodorants do not stop sweating. They contain chemicals (in conventional deodorants) and essential oils (in natural deodorants) that only control the bacteria living in your armpits.

Sweating itself does not smell bad. The bacteria that live in our armpits, feasts on the proteins, salts, and minerals that sweat contains. Gasses produced by these bacteria leave behind the unpleasant smell.

Therefore, there are no deodorants that stop sweating because they were not meant to stop sweating: They were meant to stop the stinking.

However, antiperspirants contain aluminum components that form a gel-like substance in your armpits which block the sweat glands.

If you are looking for deodorants that stop sweating, unfortunately, you will not find one. There are many deodorants- antiperspirants that do help to reduce sweating, but they will not stop it, because these products do not contain enough aluminum chloride to stop sweating.

The difference between deodorants and antiperspirants is that one stops the bad smell and the other one stops the sweating.

If you buy a product that is both deodorant-antiperspirant, then it will likely reduce sweating and control bacteria so you can smell better.
