  1. 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.
