Sanex is very good.
Indeed, they smell divinely but have poor effects on perspiration IMO.I'm cheap in this aspect, having found the designer ones to be far far less effective - does the job!
The issue with most antiperspirants is that they contain aluminium salts. It's usually a different salt than the one that forms an alum block. Both are aluminium salts, but alum blocks, like Salt of the Earth sticks and such, claim the salt they contain is too large to be absorbed by skin.You moisten the skin and rub the stick on which leaves an invisible antibacterial residue. Sweat itself doesn’t smell, it’s a bacterial reaction to it. The residual antibacterial on your skin kills bacteria, hence no reaction, hence no smell.
Antiperspirant works by clogging your pores. There are rumoured health risks to this but nothing conclusive, however I don’t like the idea of clogging up my skin and definitely didn’t like the effect it had on the armpits of my shirts.
Plus 1 for the A&H. Got a stick while on holiday in USA. Liked it so much I got another two to bring back. Not one I’ve seen on U.K. shelves so I’m going to be disappointed when they all run out.I had been using a few different antiperspirants for years. Degree. Dove. Arm & Hammer. Then my wife got a couple trial samples of Native natural deodorant. So I tried it. My initial intro to it was ghastly. After a few days I noticed irritation. And it just kept getting worse. I contacted Native and they said that was normal. They said it was my body ridding itself of "toxins". They then suggested I try their "sensitive skin" version which was coconut scented. It actually worked really really well. I actually ended up loving it once the irritation went away and stayed away. Unfortunately they were charging $12 for a stick. No way was I going to fork that much over for deodorant. I've seen it now for $10 but that's still insane. So I found another all natural deodorant that got good solid reviews. Arm & Hammer Essentials. No aluminum or parabens. I don't like how it goes on as compared to the Native. The Native goes on dry while the A&H goes on a little wet at first. But it does dry quickly. But more importantly, the A&H actually works all day. I was skeptical but I've been using it for a while now. And at a couple bucks a stick, I'm way ahead of the game.

They do sell it online in the UK, but it's not cheap. Also, it contains EDTA, so I can't really use it.Plus 1 for the A&H. Got a stick while on holiday in USA. Liked it so much I got another two to bring back. Not one I’ve seen on U.K. shelves so I’m going to be disappointed when they all run out.
Seen it on eBay but it does cost. I only paid $6.99 for two so £2.70 each. Shame you can’t use it, I find it really good. May end up paying the extra it’s that good.They do sell it online in the UK, but it's not cheap. Also, it contains EDTA, so I can't really use it.
I should've asked someone to post a list of ingredients here first. :-/
