What do y'all solarpunks use for underarm sweatiness & scent?
Store bought deodorants seem to frequently give me rashes.
i haven't used deodorant in many years. have you ever tried to stop using it for a few months and see what happens?
i only wear cotton or merino t-shirts and i find that makes a big difference. i had a synthetic shirt a few years back and it always smelled unpleasant after use.
might be good to give it a try and see if the microbiome of your armpits stabilises (like @neauoire was wondering). it could be that the chemicals in the deodorant are disrupting the balance - though i've never specifically read any research on that.
i think diet also plays a role in body odour.
i guess there's also a question about the perception of body-related smells in our societies. do we really need to be covering up our animal scents all the time? maybe we go a lil overboard.
I wonder if it's related to how when you pickle food, for a week the bacteria battles and it smells, and afterward it stabilizes and the smell goes away.
