I have tried quite a few natural deordorants and the problem I find with most of them is that they did not hold me. I felt the need to constantly reapply. I just recently discovered Schmidt’s deodorant and so far I have tried the Charcoal + Magnesium. I love the scent and it holds me all day. It does not leave a stain on my clothes or leave a residue on the skin. The problem I did have with the deordorant is that it was really rough. After a couple of weeks and skin started to burn and peel. Because I didn’t have a replacement I continued to use the product, I just applied less and rub it in a downward direction instead of back and forth, that actually helped I haven’t experienced any burning or peeling since. I don’t know if this was due to the roughness or the fact that I have sensitive skin. But, I have faith in this deordorant I think it’s just the Charcoal + Magnesium that has a rough texture. To make sure it doesn’t irritate my skin I do rotate it with a sensitive version. However, the Charcoal + Magnesium is my favorite and I will continue to use.
