Most mass manufactured deodorants include an anti-perspirant to block the pores and inhibit sweating.We made our deodorants without any anti perspirant element so that we didn't have have to add strong chemicals to the mix.

This means that these deodorants don't stop you from sweating as such in the same way, but the soda and arrowroot absorb perspiration and the oils and butters keep your skin soft and comfortable as well as smelling gorgeous. A much more gentler way of staying fresh and smelling great.
