Aluminum chloride is a common antiperspirant ingredient. It prevents sweating by blocking the production of sweat from the underarm glands. There are several different types of aluminum compounds, but aluminum chloride is one of the most effective and widely used ones. Aluminum chloride works by binding with sodium ions in sweat, preventing them from leaving the body through pores in your skin. As a result, you will notice that you have less perspiration on your clothes after using this product for a while. However, there are some side effects to consider if you use this type of deodorant: In high doses it can cause irritation to your skin and lungs due to its strong irritating nature; there may also be an increased risk for hyperkeratosis (a condition where hair grows abnormally fast), allergic contact dermatitis (an inflammation caused when contact with certain substances) or other potential health consequences depending on how often or long you use it;
