I’ve been a bit worried about what goes into under arm deoderants for a while now with worries over various aluminium and zirconium salts being possibly linked to breast cancer and other ill effects on health.
This PitRock was offered at a good price in our local supermarket and we’d heard quite good things about it so took the plunge. It’s a stick of natural mineral salts that does not deodorise or block the pores but has a bacteriostatic action which should nip the main unpleasant cause of any under arm body odour (yes, sorry to bring that up) in the bud.
It seems to take a short while for your body to adjust but so far it does seem to be working and clearly though the 100g stick costs more than most roll on deodorants (£4.48 in our local Asda and just over £6 in most other stores) it will clearly last a lot longer (quite how long I’ll have to let you know).
I’ve tried the mineral based deodorants from Lush in the past but they literally had a burning effect and were overloaded with accompanying perfume (or so I found).
In this instance the perfume , if required, needs to come from elsewhere. Either from your favourite perfume , body spray or washing product whilst the rock does it job in keeping the causes of unpleasant body odour at bay.
