Everybody uses deodorant, right? Well, I’m sure some naturalists will disagree. But for the rest of us, It’s a very common household product that most people can’t go an entire day without, and billions of dollars worth of it are sold every year by major retailers. Did you know that there are several Black-owned brands of deodorant? Even more, each of them are all-natural with no chemicals or aluminum.
