Have tried the hippy stuff bayrunner posted, it works but the stuff I was given was too scented.

Pete where is this Schmidt product sold? Normal stores like target?
I think it was on sale at Whole Foods or something?...

There is zero scientific evidence that the active ingredients(Aluminum Zirconiums) in most anti-perspirants is bad for you.

Just so you know.

I know. Just like the previously hyped up information that gum disease may play a contributing factor. But I figure it doesn't hurt to reduce the amount of non-natural crap that goes into my body (I avoid heating up stuff in plastic containers. drinking hot stuff out of plastic, eating organic when I can, forgoing aluminum in my deodorant, and avoiding whatever godforsaken and hard to understand stuff they put into soap these days (I use Dr Bronners). I figure it can't hurt. This, like deciding if eggs are bad for you, is certainly a personal choice, based upon a lot of incomplete, or completely missing, science.

I agree with all this, but not the eggs thing. I eat at least a dozen a week. Sometimes two dozen.

I know, right? And I hear it's safe to live under high-power wires... and I hear of a slew of FDA drugs that <were> safe, but now they'll kill you... and I hear that there's nothing wrong with asbestos... and I hear that there's nothing wrong with painting your teeth with the glow-in-the-dark paint that used to paint on clock faces... and I hear...

You get the idea. If you want to use the chemical-based, stuff... that's great -- although, I'd almost prefer that those who do it are self-insured... just in case.

I'm still trying to comprehend only using deodorant once a week.

That is always the next task after drying off from a shower...a couple swipes of degree. Ever since I was...I don't know...10?

Probably should avoid using cellular phones too. Who will lead by example ?

I'll say this... I just finished a 26 mile bike ride in S Florida. Zero odor from my usually stank pits. This stuff is 100% A+++ Wife says the sale is running a bit longer. She'll be stocking up.

Tom's of Maine is clearly a casualty of corporate take-over. I'll likely explore other toothpastes now too. I think Tom's time has passed.

Can you help me understand. What is a "chemical"?

What would you do if the antiperspirant had deoxyribonucleic acid in it? Would that be a chemical ?

Turthfully? I'd say you were an idiot, in a respectful way, because you have no idea what I'm taking about. LOL.

Schmidt's ad says "Our scents are for everyone, no matter how you identify." Whatever that means.

I had been using the Tom 's for a year or so. I was running out and looked for more at the store, but they only carried Schmidt's, so I bought some. I'll be going back to the Tom's when I run out. Schmidt's goes on like a wad of petroleum jelly with mud mixed in. On a warm day I began to feel sticky. I'm too cheap to throw it away and get what I want, so I'll use it up till it is gone and go back to Tom's.

Tom's smells like bad feet when I apply it, I'll stick with Arm & Hammer essentials.

Actually tried the Schmidt's and like it. I hate the texture of it going on, like a brick of tar, but it works well.
