I began using baby powder containing corn starch and zinc oxide instead of antiperspirant deodorant. For me, it works even better than the deodorant and I don't have to be concerned about the aluminum from the antiperspirant being absorbed through my skin anymore. I pour some baby powder from the container into a small bowl and use a powder puff for the application. I figure that if it's safe for a baby, it must be safe for all of us.
