Natural Deodorants – JASON Nourishing Apricot Deodorant

Natural Deodorants Vs. Non-Natural Deodorants I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while now, as it still blows me away how many people are using mainstream antiperspirants and deodorants, despite the health concerns aroused by them becoming increasingly documented in the mainstream press.
