This product is supposed to be non toxic. However, it does sting your underarms if you use it after shaving, much more than other deodorants. The packaging is really bad, it leaks the product when I put it in my purse every time. It is effective however, for half a day. You need to reapply it after a couple of hours. If you wear white, pay attention that it does not stain your blouse yellow under the arms.
