www.lush.com Please don't let the fact that it's a very girly site put you off. All of their products are natural or vegan or safe enough to eat. And they work for the funkiest of either gender.

Their Teo deodorant bar is like a big circle of chalk. It smells citrussy and really works. Their aromacreme cream deodorant smells a little flowery, but a man could indeed get away with wearing it.

I have used these products 1st thing in the morning, worked, gone to football practice from 2-4:30, driven to a martial arts class and only changed shirts and worked out from 6-8:30. And nobody knew how dirty I was!

(I don't do that often- it was a weird day, but I think that's a good illustration of Lush deodorants' efficacy.)

Pricey but worth it and safe enough to use on a child.

Pick your location from the flags, go to CLOSEUP then DEODORANTS

And their T for Toes kills foot odor and cured my athlete's foot in just a few applications. Again- all natural ingredients that are safe for you, the environment and the animals you wish to experiment upon!

The funny thing about the crystal deodorant is its label states " does not contain aluminum chloride!!!" No, instead it contains something like amonium aluminum sulphate. Point being, it still contains aluminum.

Sugar and stress seem to be biggies for the stink factor. Both release more glucose into the sweat glands and this feeds those fun little bacteria. Brad's recommendation is a good one. Real showers are OK as well.

I swear my sweat smelled better when I was vegan.

I notice now that I'm eating meat, a really intense workout will leave my clothes smelling of ammonia when I take them out of my gym bag...

Never had that problem when I was sparing the cute animals.

But really, Lush.com. Their stuff is a godsend- to the people who train with me or who are ON the train with me. After I train.

Choo-choo!

Bump! Any new ideas?

I use the Israeli stuff Yael mentioned (deodorant cream). It does work great but is an antiperspirant and I'm not sure how healthy it is. Looking for an alternative... that actually works.

Here's an aluminum-free deodorant that you can actually make yourself. Yup, it's inexpensive but, better, it's effective. It's not an antiperspirant, but you won't smell in the gym.
