      body odor, sweating
      Magnesium Hydroxide is a safe and naturally occurring compound that can be used in a pharmaceutical grade as a deodorant. It is an alternative to aluminum (used in most deodorants,) or baking soda (used in some natural deodorants) and other ingredients that are can irritate the skin. Research and studies have shown that Magnesium Hydroxide kills odor-causing bacteria on the surface of the skin without absorbing into the layer of skin where pores, sweat glands and hair follicles are found. Magnesium Hydroxide balances the body's natural pH without drying the skin[1]. Arrowroot has soothing porperties to the skin[2]. Coconut oil supports moisture retention of dry, irritated skin, including the scalp, and it helps target skin inflammation [3, 4]. Shea butter is frequently used in skin care products and cosmetics due to its skin protecting properties [5,6].
