Lafes Roll-On Unscented Deodorant

Evidence is mounting against parabens, chemicals that are used as a preservative in many personal care products.  The most noteworthy would be their presence in breast cancer tissue, as well as most deodorants.  I have tried several natural deodorants on the market, and Lafes has really worked out for me.  I don't particularly like heavily scented things that simply cover up smells, so initially I tried several mineral salt crystal products.  Most dried out my skin and made my armpits itch.  In addition to the highly effective mineral salts, this deodorant contains aloe and hemp oil, which solved the dryness and itching issues for me.  And the bottom works!  OK, so if it's hot and humid or you're running around like crazy, it won't stop all the sweat, but then again, neither do toxic antiperspirants.  This works as well as the standard antiperspirants with aluminum, but unlike those, this has a very low toxicity rating of a 1 on EWG's Skindeep Database.  I found mine at Whole Foods, but it is available for purchase online as well.  It's MADE IN THE USA
