I used to use Dove before I discovered the cure of Korina Natural Deodorant. Though Dove didn’t work for me at combating odor — none of the drug store brands did — I figured it was the most gentle deodorant/antiperspirant out there. After reading this article from Wired UK, I am once again reminded how much I don’t miss the days of using a mass-produced deodorant.

Check out the article yourself and tell me your mouth wasn’t strained from trying to pronounce these ingredients. And don’t get me started on what they actually are. To think about what what I was stuffing into my pores!
