Aluminum chlorhydrate makes an excellent anti-perspirant, it prevents your pores from sweating.

Deodorants are some kind of scent and bacterial killer, they attempt to prevent smell and cover it up if it does happen.

Natural deodorants without aluminum have the handicap of having to be made from gently, "natural" ingredients, so they have each foot in a cement-filled bucket.
