Homemade deodorant- Take out the juice of two dozen radishes and then add 1/4 teaspoon of glycerine.

I don't know if it would control sweat or not, but maybe it would help with sensitivities to the baking soda or cornstarch.

Jo- You can buy virgin (unrefined) coconut oil in the natural section of most stores. Do not apply any deodorant on skin until the redness and irritation have ceased.
I've been using this deodorant for about 6 months now, and it works better than any store-bought stuff I've ever used.
