Burns my armpits! :(,
I've been using Tom's apricot, long-lasting brand deoderant for several years. Lately, it's been burning my armpits when I start to sweat. It hurts so bad that I have to rush home, wash it off, use alcohol as a solvent to dissolve what ever is left, and stop using any deoderant for several days until the skin heals. There is a red inflamed ring around my armpits and peeling (though I think it is the glue nature of the deooderant peeling but may include skin as well as other people are claiming).
I don't know why sometimes it's fine, while other times it burns without mercy! I've thrown all of them away. I have one lavender stick that I will try- but even this scent has the zinc ricinoleate and hops ingredients that other people are saying cause rash. Looking online, I've found almost a hundred posts from other people having the same burning and peeling reaction.
The reason I chose Tom's was because aluminum anti-perspirant makes me itch very badly. So, now I have to find another alternative deoderant.
They pride themselves (and are selling themselves) based on the fact that they don't test on animals. Well, it seems they are not doing much testing at ALL if many people are getting hurt from their product and yet they still sell without skin-rash warning label on their product.
