    I'm using this and love it. Played guitar at a show last night and this keeps me from smelling awful.

    It's vegan too.

    Thought.
    Love the Herban Cowboy line, though the Dusk bar soap began to make my eyes itchy and red. I think the company was recently bought out by a larger one. Maybe the recipes were changed.

    The pun in the name makes me piss my pants with laughter.

    They also have a pleasant smelling natural cologne, I believe you can try it at Whole Foods.

    Bought some of their shave soap a long time ago and was unhappy with it.

    YMMV - While it has a very pungent/mascuilne smell going on, it fades fast and I wouldn't consider it very effective

    Do you buy deodorant for the smell? Get unscented. It works well and lasts.

    100% vegan.

    No parabens, propylene glycol, aluminum, alcohol or triclosan.

    Propanediol, Aqua, Silver, Sodium Stearate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sodium Bicarbonate, Mineral Salts, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate (Licorice Root), Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Carum Petroselinum (Parsley) Extract, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf Extract, Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis) (Leaf), Allantoin

    This is for the unscented.

    I will try to get an answer from the company if they have a perspective on it.

    They approve things that are controversial and not safe. I would not depend on the FDA. Propanediol is a polymer, probably Propylene Glycol. Ethylhexylglycerin has a low risk rating, maybe just a possible irritant Allantoin appears to be safe and is probably derived from the comfrey plant, since sourcing from cow urine would make it non-vegan. Silver would probably be the deal breaker for me. It's probably used in the same way as Aluminum would be in clogging the pores and is not much better IMO.

    I traveled to Whole Foods to pick up 100% recycled tissue paper and Castor Oil. I also looked at the Herban Cowboy products. The dusk scented deodorant doesn't have silver in the ingredients and instead unnamed minerals. Ended up getting the Dusk soap since WF is an hour away and I wouldn't be back soon. The Dusk smells good. A+
