Seeing that this is a stick of deodorant a lot of the above areas, latherability and such do not apply. That being said, I have been using ToM deodorant for a few years and am a big fan of the product. I normally would sweat through my undershirt and shirt no problem. This was with a variety of antiperspirants. The product was recommended to me by somebody at a music festival and I figured I would give it a go. It took a few days to work, but eventually I was no longer sweating through my shirts. The only time I do is when one would expect to do so, such as, working out. I highly recommend this product. It is all natural and works great. I have never worried about any pit-stench since. However, the price does come at a premium.
