In early 2014 Louis Widmer launched its first aluminum-free deodrant and just called it:

Louis Widmer Deodorant Aluminium Salts-free.

louis_widmer-deodorant_aluminumsalts-freeThis aluminiumfree deodorant contains bacteriostatic agents which are dermatologically and allergologically safe and are recommended by Louis Widmer even for very sensitive skin. Chitosan is used as a deodorizing agent; the plant-based ethylhexylglycerin inhibits odor-causing bacteria from developping and silver molecules act slightly antiseptic and antibacteria on the skin.

The deodorant is also suitable for the use on hands and feet. The application is usually done once a day. For people who sweat heavily Louis Widmer recommends the use of the deodorant twice a day.

It is available lightly scented and non-scented.
