Very interesting...would be interested to hear as well.
Curious if it has aluminum...seems that it is a necessary toxin for an effective anti-perspirant

Thanks for posting Ben.

My word, Ben. Those are some lengthy and complicated names in the list. Blush

Thanks Ben.
Not all that surprised but for me it still may be worth a look.
From my understanding, it is the aluminum that is the anti-perspirant. It is not merely an ingredient of it. Rather it is it.
So I'm not sure if there are any options out there that claim to be an AP w/o aluminum.
My wife has explained to me a few times exactly why it is toxic - basically the metal gets in the blood IIRC. But since I have not found an alternative I continue to use an AP.

Piyush, apparently the aluminium collects in the brain, but as you stated there is NO AP without Aluminium...

I tried a number of deodorants this year in an effort to move away from the aluminium based AP, however I've had no real success so am returning to them.

This product works!

Let me start by saying I'm not a fan of roll on and I've discovered deodorant only (as opposed to antiperspirant) doesn't perform for me.

Jack Black has a very pleasant, but subtle soapy, almost Barbershop scent. A few strokes is ample to ensure confidence all day long even under hot or physical conditions. And there is absolutely no need for re-applications.

In my quest to leave behind the supermarket aerosol aluminium based products, I've tried many products such as Spieck spray, RazoRock Alum spray and Lucky Tiger Spray. Just when I was considering giving up, Jack Black has out performed them all. It does contain Aluminium, but it is paraben free.

The downfall for me is not specific to this product and more accurately reflects my experience with all roll ons and this relates to dissatisfaction with application. I passionately dislike observing the occasional armpit hair on the stick and even more the white streaks on my clothing. I'm not about to shave my pits or go shirt less, so these are aspects that will continue to annoy me. However as stated previously when it comes to performance I can't fault it.

Therefore...

Jack Black Antiperspirant and Deodorant is the Pit Boss!

Except that it is a roll on. I wish they had a spray version!

Ah yes, a spray version would be optimal ... I too dislike when clothing picks up streaks, etc. ... and plucking stray hairs from the stick is cumbersome.

Thanks for the update Ben.
Good to know that there is a product that performs well. I, too, prefer sprays b/c of the same reasons you mentioned. I tend to also prefer the way spray applies 'evenly' and doesn't feel sticky.

Piyush, this product doesn't feel sticky or heavy, but just like you I prefer the way a spray feels and will no doubt continue my search for "the one."

I've discontinued using this product after discovering a mild skin irritation just beneath both of my arm pits... Sad
