Is using deodorant bad for you?


Answer by  Binome (1975)

No, it is not. Using deodorant has never been shown by medical science to have significant adverse health effects. At worst, you could have an allergic reaction and get a rash. NOT using deodorant however can be bad for you, as people may find your body odor offensive and react accordingly.

Not unless you are allergic to ingredients. You can buy all natural deoderant, Tom's Of Maine is one brand. If you are very concerned about safety. I'd be more worried about the odor...
