Natural deodorant users

I have been using Kiss My Face roll on deodorant for some time now (like 6 years).  I've never had a problem with it, but suddenly my underarms are SO itchy.  I did do some exfoliating, so I don't know if that triggered it.  I also bought a new container of KMF that was redesigned, so I don't know if that had something to do with it (like an ingredient change).

Has this happened to anyone else?  Sometimes I want to claw out my armpits!!

Re: Natural deodorant users

  • This happens to me too, mostly with conventional deodorants if I have to use them for any length of time. I don't know what the ingredient is that causes the itch,  but it's ANNYOING. KMF must have had a minor change in indredients that's affecting you. Right now, I'm using Desert Essentials Tea Tree Oil, and no issues. GL :)
  • I'm sorry, that must be awful.  I don't have any insight on what might be causing the itching other than what you suggested that they changed their formula and your skin is sensitive to one of the ingredients.  I've been using Alvera Aloe and Almonds (on Amazon) and have really liked it.  I'm getting ready to order another one.  GL!  and I hope you find something that jives with your skin.

    This exactly.  KMF and JASON brand both gave me red armpits (not really a rash, but redness) primarilly, but the itch was there as well.
