To learn more about why natural deodorant is so important read below:
There are different types of sweat. Most sweat is clear and not very stinky-its purpose is to cool down the body. But stress, sex, hormones, and anger can cause body odor to smell. However, there is a bigger issue: pit bacteria.

Just like your gut bacteria can change when taking antibiotics, your under arm bacteria micro biome can change from using toxic chemicals (antiperspirant and deodorant, soap, body wash).
This can cause your sweat to stink even more.
Switching back and forth between your antiperspirant and a new natural deodorant could make the problem worse.

Sweating is natural and we need to be able to sweat!
