If not was is a good deodorant to use for someone that sweats a lot? I normally us clinical strength degree.

Re: Yellowing shirts?? Deodorant talk...

Hmm, I had a lot of difficulty with yellowed armpits in college, but I was using a clinical deodorant then. I really never wear white shirts now and have not noticed any discoloration on my colored shirts using natural deo. But I cannot speak to what the situation would be with white shirts. The yellowing might have to do with your pH??

I put some on some TP and it definitely has an orange/yellow tint to the DO. Grrrr it works great but I can't have it staining my clothes .

What about the crystal rock deodorant? It's cheap, works great, and is totally clear.

The only thing I have found that works and doesn't discolor my shirts is Funk Butter or making it myself.

Nope. What I have has been working, so I have stuck with it. It is rather frustrating being the smelly one in the family. I am hoping my kids all get their daddy's genes on this one.

Re: Yellowing shirts?? Deodorant talk...

Now that I think about it, my Tom's of Maine deo (which didn't work at all) was very distinctly yellow, but it never transferred to my shirt.

I'm anxiously looking at the deo I make now, and I guess there are ever so slight hues to it from the tamanu oil and the essential oils. But it's pretty much white. And I specifically asked testers if it marked their clothes. One said that she got white streaks during a heavy workout, but it washed right out.

Anyhow, what I'm thinking is that any natural deo that contains essential oils will have a very slight tint to it b/c essential oils and nutritive oils like cocoa butter, tamanu, and vit e are not clear/white, and for those to be effective, you need a good helping of them. Chemically manufactured ingredients can be made to be white, but nature is a little less obliging in her options. For that to lead to staining is another matter though. I can see how if cocoa butter was the primary base for a deodorant, that might stain, and I wonder if that is the base oil for the deo you tried. This is also one of the reasons I chose white instead of yellow beeswax. However, some people might prefer a deodorant to go on more off-white so that it shows less obtrusively in sleeveless tops.

I'm sorry you're having problems w/ your deo!
