Australian company nasanta flips the script on regular antiperspirant by replacing aluminum with — wait for it — magnesium. The compound is slightly alkaline, which means it neutralizes organic acids that lead to B.O. “Magnesium is the antithesis of aluminum and extremely important for optimum health and body performance,” says founder Andres Restrepo.
So… what does that mean? According to nasanta, magnesium synthesizes protein, transports and stores energy, and helps relax muscles — so it’s ideal for fitness enthusiasts as well as those of us who come back from one yoga class and can’t move (ahem).
