While ditching your trusted antiperspirant and moving on to something else might sound daunting, considering the change is definitely worth it if you have the slightest idea of how traditional antiperspirants work.

Aluminum (which is just one harmful ingredient found on the list of at least 20 ingredients in antiperspirants) is a chemical compound that effectively clogs the sweat ducts and prevents them from producing sweat for some time. And while this might sound like an ideal way to save yourself from the embarrassment of sweaty armpits, especially during an important meeting or a date, you should know that this is far from solving the problem.

On the contrary, this kind of "solution" might come with a hefty price tag in the form of serious hormonal disruption, which can cause estrogen dominance, essentially leading to all sorts of health and skin issues, from mood swings and infertility to inflammatory skin conditions like acne, and even cancer.

But don't worry, because the alternative isn't to go natural and learn to ignore body odor. It's finding something that won't potentially cause health issues while making you stay fresh and smelling nice for hours. Because smelling nice doesn't have to come with hormonal disruption.

So, in the spirit of staying naturally dry (and with balanced hormones,) we've compiled a list of 17 aluminum-free deodorants that really work and won't harm your health.
