    In the Philippines we use '"ALUM" or as we call it here, "TAWAS", as deodorant. It is very effective as it lasts for the whole day and it doesn't harm your underarm's sensitive skin. It has 2 variations, powder and crystal. Hope you try this!

    For the Deodorant, in the past before it does exist, people were eating from the ground. No process food, nothing fast food. I guess if you gave these stuff, like processed milk, cheese and other stuff. You will be able to give it up with the condition of eating totally healthy and shower everyday. Me personally I did gave up Deodorants with bad chemicals and started to use the ones without aluminium because it's bad for health and it can cause breast cancer. It's a step but I cannot live without it

    I use deodorant not because the commercials are incredible, but because I respect myself and the people around me. I use a credit card because is pure retardness to walk around with thousands of dollars. I use a car when I go on a trip or when I have to carry my instruments for concerts, or when I take my family or my friends, otherwise I walk alot, too (but not barefoot because it might hurt my feet too bad since I live in an european capital, not in the woods) but I also use public transport or bike. Human kind evolved alot lately, the problem is about those who just use objects instead selfdeveloping. Great experiment, bro, but this covid crysis helped me reduce my spendings to basic without any extreme moves. I am a man who knows what selfcontrol is, and I preffer to evolve more into that! Good luck and lots of love!

    I admire this experiment, but I don’t think it’s a good idea to tell the world you have several thousand dollars in your backpack.

    Deodorant is useless. I stopped using soap and deo completely and I don't smell of sweat anymore. I just wash my armpits every day with hot water and my fingers, the microbiome of my skin stays and it works even better. We have a wrong relationship to our body and hygiene. We do everything wrong, unnaturally and we are unhealthy.
