I stopped wearing deodorant and antiperspirant about 15 years ago. I had read bad things about the effects of aluminum chlorohydrate, the white-colored active agent in antiperspirants, and decided to stop using anything under my arms altogether.
Fortunately, only about one person in 15 years has ever noticed the difference, even after full days of wearing business suits in the summer. I mean, I still sweat, but I can only guess that maintaining a vegetarian diet with almost no milk products has helped keep my sweat smelling fairly neutral.
So, my questions are:
1) Do you wear deodorant, antiperspirant or nothing?
2) If you go without deodorant, is there a noticeable difference? ...and do you think people mind it?
