Its not like it seeps through your skin.
Well, just thinking logically - you smear chemicals INTO your PORES.

I would love to NOT have to put on deodorant but I have to. I have a stick at work, in my car and in my purse because sometimes I forget to put it on after showering. I can smell myself about an hour after taking a shower and it is not a nice smell.

I need deodorant for my feet. They sweat like crazy and ruin my socks.

use a bar of soap, that should do the trick.
But even with daily baths, some young children will have smelly armpits. At even younger than 8. I have my kids use Liquid Crystal and add essential oils to it. For one of them, it isn't quite enough by the end of the day. That child has switched to Secret. The aluminum content concerns me, however, so I may see how deodorant soap on the pits, followed by Liquid Crystal, works (we also use natural-based soap as well).

It's very important. I put it on every time I leave the house.

I think it's important not to stink, but I can get away with only using it once or twice per week in winter. I bathe daily, but I don't get underarm smell immediately. I'd have to go at least a week without deoderant to start stinkin'!

I suppose all people are different, but I don't know how humans coexisted prior to deoderant/shampoo/toothpaste/daily bathing/laundry soap I can't go 24 hours without a shower!

I'm not even smelly but once I forgot deodorant as a young teen and spent the entire day with my arms clamped to my sides "just in case".

Lol.

Nowdays I NEED deodorant, getting older seems to do that, I religiously wear it even after a shower at night.

I recently showered, sprayed, then got a spray tan and ended up with GREEN armpits! Something in the deodorant reacted

Hahahahahahahahahahah!!! ROFLMBO!!!

Wow... that one took my breath away!

My deodorant is extremely important to me. Truth be told YOUR deodorant is important to me. The people I have to stand down wind from - to me their deodorant is important.

But ya gotta bathe DAILY. Not all parents teach that, I guess. But it's true. THEN use deodorant.

Lol always makes me laugh when people say things like this then feed their kids junk food and let them sit on their butts in front of a screen 10 hours a day.

NOT! saying you're that type!!!! but people have a seriously skewed idea of the amount of chemicals we all ingest, every single day of our lives.

Heck 30 years ago lead coated everything including the food we ate. That's cleaned up now and no one seems to have got any smarter.
