    Is aluminum chlorohydrate bad to wear? I’ve read that it’s not good and I’ve read that it’s safe. What are your thoughts?

      Janessa, I’ve read that some people are concerned it may cause cancer but science hasn’t found a link between the two yet and so doctors claim it is safe. Personally, I only use it in moderation, alternating deodorants with it to those who are free of it instead. I don’t think we should worry yet, but reducing its use may be a good idea, just in case, until further studies will reveal more.
